ItemBetween Russia and the West: Prospects for Ukrainian Foreign Policy Choices(1998) Haran, OlexiyThe disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of the newly independen states created a new geopolitical situation, not only in Eastern Europe, but on the global level a well. The West lost its main enemy, the Cold War is over, and many Americans believe tha there are no grounds for U.S. involvement in the affairs of the former Soviet Union. However, Russia remains a great power with a huge nuclear arsenal, and the future of economic and political reform is unclear, as its foreign policy, especially in the so-called “near abroad.” The conflicts in this region influence the domestic and foreign policies of Russia and destabilize the situation in Eastern Europe, providing new challenges for Western policy in this region. ItemConstructing a Political Nation : Changes in the Attitudes of Ukrainians during the War in the Donbas(Stylos Publishing, 2017) Bekeshkina, Iryna; Sydorchuk, Oleksii; Burakovskiy, Ihor; Zolkina, Mariia; Haran, Olexiy; Chabanna, Marharyta; Kermach, Ruslan; Haran, Olexiy; Yakovlyev, MaksymWhat effect did Russia’s attack have on Ukrainian society and on public opinion? And how, in turn, did changes in public opinion and in society influence Ukrainian identity and politics? This book, prepared by the School for Policy Analysis, National University of Kyiv–Mohyla Academy with the participation of the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation, shows that contrary to the Kremlin’s expectations, Russian aggression has in fact led to a strengthening of the Ukrainian political nation. The book covers national and regional dimensions of changes in the attitudes of Ukrainians during the war in the Donbas: identity issues, political and party preferences, approaches to decentralization and the conflict in the Donbas, economic sentiments, changes in foreign policy attitudes toward the EU, NATO, and Russia. ItemFighting for Freedom: Ukrainian Assessment of the Implications of the Russian Invasion for South Asia(2022) Haran, Olexiy; Burkovskyi, PetroSince the 2000s, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s policy towards Ukraine was aimed at restoring full control of the nation’s political, economic, and security systems. It contradicted Russian legal obligations as Ukraine had given up its nuclear weapons and Russia was among the guarantors of its territorial integrity. Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 resulted in heavy sanctions, which Moscow did not foresee, while Kyiv demonstrated better adaptability to the changing war situation and accelerated its integration with EU. Russia has been losing its status as a great power and the invasion has cost it dearly. Russian foreign and security policy in South Asia since 2014 is being questioned. The war between Ukraine and Russia created a profound global strategic and economic crisis for the South Asian countries. At the same time, it showed how smaller nations can defend themselves by building networks of clos partnerships with other neighbouring nations. The conflict also proved how manipulations with energy resources and food supplies can constrain such cooperation and how spread of narratives helps the aggressor state to disguise plans to build spheres of influence. Despite some attempts in South Asia to stay neutral between aggressor and its victim, or even to benefit from the war, withdrawal of the Russian troops from Ukraine would be beneficial for South Asian countries. ItemUnion européenne, OTAN : la société ukrainienne a fait son choix(2023) Haran, Olexiy; Burkovskyi, PetroLa résistance ukrainienne s'inscrit dans un temps long, ouvert par l'indépendance de 1991 et confirmé en 2014. Une tendance continue a rapproché très largement l'opinion du pays de l'UE puis de l'OTAN, la conduisant à chercher une véritable séparation avec la Russie et surtout avec son héritage historique soviétique. Accélérant des processus déjà en cours, l'Ukraine entend sortir de la guerre comme une véritable démocratie européenne.
