Ukraine and Europe: A Turning Point?

Dear Media Professional,

Despite months of intense wrangling between Kyiv and EU capitals, it is now highly unlikely that Ukraine will sign the EU association agreement during the November 28-29 European Union Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius. Moldova and Georgia appear far more poised to initial key agreements with the EU. Yet no matter the summit’s final outcome, it is sure to be a turning point for the EU’s integration agenda, for Europe’s relations with Russia, and for the future development of states in the region. In the immediate aftermath of this historic moment, join us on Monday, December 2nd to hear the analysis of prominent Ukrainian, Russian and German experts.
