ECMI ONLINE TALK / Ukraine’s National Minorities and Russia’s War of Aggression
The devastating war in Ukraine has drastically changed the life of Ukraine’s national and ethnic minorities that once comprised a significant part of its population. Minority groups residing in the south-east of the country suddenly found themselves living under the Russian occupational forces and they have to fight for the preservation of their identity. Meanwhile, those minorities living in other parts of Ukraine managed to intensify ties with their kin-states and showed solid civic engagement. Despite not being Ukraine’s priority in times of war, the question of the future of Ukraine’s minority policy will be essential for conditioning the country’s chances for EU accession. With this in mind, we invite you to join the ECMI Online Talk to reflect on the following topics:

- Ethno-political dimension of the conflict

- Minority situations during the war in Ukraine

- Kin-states and minorities in Ukraine

- International development aid

- Post-conflict minority policy in Ukraine and accession to the EU

Panelists: Kateryna Haertel (DRA e.V / formerly Office of the OSCE HCNM), Krisztina Lajosi (University of Amsterdam), Mariana Semenyshyn (GIZ Kyiv)
