On March 31st, the first round of Ukraine’s presidential election takes place. The unpredictable and scandal-rich election occurs at a critical time. Five years after the Euromaidan Revolution, Ukraine’s key structural problems remain unresolved, while the conflict with Russia persists. The result of the election will have a profound impact on the country’s internal developments and its relations with the West. It will also affect the outcome of the forthcoming parliamentary elections, which will take place in October. The purpose of the seminar is to discuss the presidential campaign and the election’s implications for the future of the country. The event will focus on both regional and general aspects of Ukraine’s presidential race and offer an external analytical perspective.
