Ukraine World

June 15

Host Volodymyr Yermolenko welcomes Duncan Allan, Associate Fellow of the Russia and Eurasia Programme at Chatham House in London to talk about the prospects of the Minsk agreements aiming to end the war in Eastern Ukraine. The conversation focuses on Chatham House’s research paper, “The Minsk Conundrum: Western Policy and Russia’s War in Eastern Ukraine”

  • Highly recommended. On first glance it seems like a dry subject, but thanks to the quality of the interviewer, who is the editor of Ukraine World: Volodymyr Yermolenko and his guest: Duncan Allan from Chatham House in London, it is a memorable and illuminating encounter. The conclusion is surprisingly upbeat.
    One can’t but help thinking that if both these gentlemen were holding more senior, influential positions in their respective countries, it would be very good news all round.

    • They can’t let it rot, because Russia will simply carry on killing indefinitely and Ukrainians can’t keep taking those losses, which is death by a thousand cuts.
      1 and 2 were negotiated from a position of strength: Russia’s. And both were negotiated in bad faith by frog and kraut scum whilst Russia was slaughtering Ukrainians en masse. Anyway, if you can; listen to what these guys have to say: it’s worth your while. I tend to listen to podcasts when doing country walks.
