Leaders gathered at the Yalta European Strategy (YES) forum last weekend conveyed the message that Ukraine was at a turning point and had to make strategic choices between becoming anchored to the European Union or Russia’s economic and political sphere.
The 9th edition of the YES forum in
Ukraine was marked by a ping-pong of contrasting views over imprisoned
former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, as well as
the geostrategic course the country should pursue.
