Ukraine – at the Crossroads between East and West

Arseniy Yatsenyuk

April 3, the Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation hosted a breakfast seminar with the Ukrainian party leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk, former minister for foreign affairs and speaker. Yatsenyuk is a key figure in the attempts to unite the democrat opposition in Ukraine prior to the next parliamentary elections in October this year.

Reports of the developments in Ukraine confirm that the democracy is suffering under President Viktor Yanukovych. What does this mean to this year’s parliamentary elections and how does the democrat opposition work? Those are some of the questions that Arseniy Yatsenyuk answered during the seminar.

The seminar was moderated by MP Walburga Habsburg Douglas, who is also a member of the Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation Board and who recently visited Ukraine, hoping to meet with the detained former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. But she was stopped outside the prison.
