The monthly digest “Prism.UA” is devoted to analyzing the ongoing social, political and economic processes in Ukraine. Even though Ukraine has been at the centre of world attention for quite some time, the reason behind the project is to present more qualitative and reliable expertise for stakeholders in the EU and Eastern Partnership.
Since the Revolution of Dignity in February 2014 Ukraine has become the target of severe multifaceted aggression from Russia. Thee Crimean peninsula, an integral part of Ukraine, has been annexed and two other regions in the East of Ukraine have been flooded with Russian weaponry and regular troops. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of these cynical actions that threaten not only Ukraine but the whole of Europe as well.
It is worth blaming the so-called hybrid war that Russia is waging against Ukraine on the different tools of the propaganda machine. Kremlin’s mouthpieces and media have proved active in distorting reality on the ground and the facts pertaining to the Russia-led conflict. This is another reason why more objective, unbiased and on-the-ground assessments that provide a holistic picture of all the processes, are needed.
The core group of experts engaged in this project constitutes the Foreign Policy Council “Ukrainian prism”, the initiative of like-minded people in Ukraine with strong expertise in political sciences, economics, diplomacy and international relations. In cooperation with the Eastern Europe Studies Centre, a Lithuania based think tank, and with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, this digest will do its best to fill some gaps in distributing analytical products that might be useful to politicians and experts interested in Ukraine.
