You're reading: Looking Ahead To 2013: US ambassador will leave with confidence in Ukraine

There are many
reasons why: to start with, U.S. policy since the fall of the Berlin
Wall has been to work to create a Europe “whole, free, democratic,
and at peace.” That remains our objective today and Ukraine is one
of Europe’s key unfinished pieces.

In addition,
Ukraine is a country with enormous potential. Ukraine has an
educated, talented population of 46 million people and plentiful
natural resources, especially some of the richest agricultural land
on the planet.

A Ukraine that is
fulfilling its potential — a prosperous, democratic and European
Ukraine — would be a great partner for the U.S., much as it has been
already in such important areas as preventing the spread of weapons
of mass destruction. This valuable partnership could help us
confront the many challenges that the world faces today: hunger,
climate change, terrorism, and religious fundamentalism to name just
a few.
