The 9th Yalta Annual Meeting entitled “Ukraine and the World: Addressing Tomorrow’s Challenges Together”, organized by the Yalta European Strategy (YES) in partnership with the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, took place in Yalta at the Livadia Palace, from 13th to 16th September 2012. More than 200 leaders from politics, business and society representing more than 20 countries discussed major global challenges and their impact on Europe, Ukraine and the world.

The overarching topic of the 9th Yalta Annual Meeting was the key transformations that are already shaping the future of the world. Forum sessions focused on the future of the world economy, on a new world order and its security, and on possible models for the development of capitalism. Special attention was paid to the role of innovation and leadership in transforming the economy and society. Other topics for discussion include the future of the European Union, energy issues and the internal and external challenges facing Ukraine.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
