The theme of this webinar, held on April the 14th, was:
« Ukraine : scenarios for the future
An Aspen institute perspective »
Olga Stefanishyna is Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine.
Yegor Chernev is a Member of Parliament, Chairman of the Ukrainian delegation to the NATO PA.
Natalie Jaresko is Chairperson of Aspen Kyiv, former Finance Minister of Ukraine.
Yuliya Tychkivska is the executive Director of Aspen Kyiv.
The Aspen Institute Kyiv was established in 2016 as the sixth European Aspen Institute and the second one in Eastern Europe after Romania. As part of the Aspen family, it quickly assimilated the nonpartisan and open mindset that characterises the institute.
After the beginning of Russia’s military aggression on February 24th, Ukrainian nationals have been forced to take shelter underground, most notably in cities’ former subways. How is humanitarian aid organised to cope with both the physical and mental hardships? How has national unity surmounted the population’s forced physical fragmentation and restricted freedoms?
Outside the country’s territory, the multiplication of signs of violence was illustrated by the number of asylum seekers successfully reaching neighbouring countries. What are the social, economic and political repercussions of the war in Ukraine on other European countries? How should their action be organised to ensure that precise, rapid and efficient help reach Ukrainian populations?
Olga Stefanishyna, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine, along with Yegor Chernev, Member of the parliament and Chairman of the Ukrainian delegation to NATO PA will join Natalie Jaresko, Former Finance Minister of Ukraine and Chairperson of Aspen Kyiv, and Yuliya Tychkivska, Executive Director of Aspen Kyiv, to share their first hand experience of what is at stake in Ukraine with Aspen France and its members. This unique format is going to explore the implications the war is having on Europe and the World. The presence of the Aspen Institute in Ukraine is a valuable resource to report to the international Aspen network and share information globally about the situation on the ground.
