More than one year after Maidan, annexation of Crimea and eruption of conflict with Russia, internal political situation in Ukraine has been crystalizing. New parliament has indeed adopted several laws limiting the influence of oligarchs in state enterprises, but behind the scenes the struggle for political influence in government and keeping of an old system in new conditions has continued. While the position of Prime Minister Yatsenyuk has weakened and his party has been losing in the polls, president Poroshenko has been trying to incorporate former structures of the Party of Regions before October local elections. An important question of internal reforms and state modernization is becoming more and more associated with declarations and promises rather real actions.

To discuss these issues, the Central European Policy Institute (CEPI) organizes a closed-door briefing with CEPI’s Associate Fellow Balázs Jarábik. Discussion will be held in Slovak.
