Ukraine Crisis Package – Understand the Roots of the Crisis

Access all our in-depth analysis, scans and briefs on the origins of today’s tension in Ukraine: what happened in 2013 and 2014.

Today’s tension cannot be understood without comprehending the 2013-2014 crisis and conflict.

  • Do you remember exactly how we reached the “Normandy Format” talks?
  • Why are these discussions important?
  • How and why is NATO involved?
  • But what happened exactly in the Donbass? And in Crimea? And in Kiev?
  • Isn’t it the time when the international situation became extremely polarized?
  • Isn’t it when “Fake News” increased and became an issue?
  • You are in a hurry to make your analysis and estimates but where to find proper analysis and reliable one, and how to find it quickly?
