February 2014,
Having former President Yanukovych turned down an economic deal with the European Union in November, pro-Western protests started in Kiev. Social disorder reached a peak point, and even casualties from both civilians and government officials began to increase. Suspicious eyes turned to the Kremlin because on the east of side the country pro- Russian groups started to arm. Day by day foreign actors are becoming more involved, and the situation is getting graver. Since the outcomes of the situation in Ukraine can have consequences for the entire region, this committee should facilitate a constructive debate to cease the aggression.
But while the state is struggling with various issues, will the president and cabinet find a way out?
The Ukrainian Cabinet is apt for both experienced and highly-experienced participants.
