Robert Brinkley CMG
Chair of Steering Committee, Ukraine Forum
Chatham House

Three years after Russia’s annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol, while the international media has largely lost interest in Ukraine, the conflict in the Donbass remains unresolved. While working to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity, Ukraine’s government has also taken big strides in stabilising the economy, introducing radical reforms and tackling corruption. Former UK Ambassador to Ukraine Robert Brinkley will offer his perspective on the outlook for the country.
