- Have Ukrainians living in Ukraine’s Eastern region felt the positive impact of economic and political rapprochement with the European Union?
- In which way does the central government contribute to local “success stories”?
- How has the work of the local authorities changed over the five years since the signing of the Association Agreement?
These are only some questions to address during the conference “European Integration of Donetsk Region: Prospective or Existing Success?” organized by the New Europe Center and the Office of the Vice-Prime-Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration on April 9 in Mariupol. This is already the fourth regional event of the NEC; our team held discussions last year in Kharkiv, Odesa and Kherson.
