Course Description The course consists of three parts: historical background, thematic and political issues, and conclusions. It provides historical perspectives on the development of today's Ukraine, analyzes the evolution of its politics since independence, and delves into its quest for Euro-Atlantic integration. While providing an assessment of political, social, and economic transformations, the course examines major causes of Euromaidan and the Revolution of Dignity. The current political situation in the country and the current war with Russia will be thoroughly investigated. The top priority of Ukraine's foreign policy is to ensure international support for its efforts to rebuff Russia’s full-fledged aggression and to restore its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Can diplomacy still play a role? What is to be done to solve existing internal problems? What is to be done to restore the country? Can Ukraine’s president, its government, and parliament solve all these problems? Is there a future for UN peacekeeping operations in Ukraine? These and other issues, including international assistance to Ukraine, behind-the-scenes activities, power struggles, and diplomatic endeavors are analyzed in the course. The course delivers first-hand insight by a career diplomat who has been actively involved in the implementation of Ukraine's foreign policy and closely connected with the upper echelons of the country's political establishment.
