On April 6, the New Europe Center organized the public discussion “Ukraine and NATO Standards: progress under Zelenskyy’s presidency“. During the event Alyona Getmanchuk, Director of the New Europe Cenre, and Marianna Fakhurdinova, Research Fellow, presented the respective research.


The New Europe Center assesses Ukraine’s progress for the second time – in 2019, our center prepared the discussion paper “Ukraine and NATO standards: how to hit the “moving target” ?”, the presentation of which coincided in time with the beginning of Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s presidency. Thus, the new document is an attempt to assess the progress made in dynamics, as well as to summarize the challenges and obstacles in the process of the NATO standards implementation during the current president’s tenure.
