Containing Conflict in Ukraine

Transatlantic Roundtable

24/06/2015 | 17:30 - 19:00 | DGAP Berlin | Invitation only

Expert Round Table

Category: Ukraine, Transatlantic Relations

Fighting in Eastern Ukraine in recent weeks has put the international spotlight back on the bloody conflict. At the same time, potential resolution to the confrontation between Russia and the West is hindered by the potential upgrade of Russian nuclear forces and the deployment of additional NATO troops in Eastern Europe. What effect will these roadblocks have on the implementation of the Minsk agreements? How can the transatlantic allies support Ukraine in its reform efforts and help safeguard its sovereignty? Will Western sanctions pressure Russia into using its leverage in the region to resolve the conflict?
