Humanity House organized the conference with Mustafa Nayyem. Brand New Ukraine helped to promote this event. The result – the sold out crowded hall and an unforgettable evening with Mustafa Nayyem.
President Yanukovych left office after months of Maidon protests were violently crushed, and a new more pro-European government led by Turchynov took power. Russia then annexed Crimea after a hasty referendum. Chaos and anarchy reign in the eastern region around Donetsk.
In ‘Ukraine: the Spring, the Chaos, the Future’, we look back and look ahead. What is going to happen now? Will political and social stability return or will instability continue? We look at the country itself and of course at the geopolitical significance.
