From the social, economic and political points of view, a lot of work still remains on Ukraine’s European path. And this is why Ukraine’s story is incomplete and requires further scrutiny. In this issue our authors take us through recent events and developments in the country, including President Zelenskyy’s (mis)management of the COVID-19 crisis and vaccine roll-out; social attitudes to the Maidan seven years on; the changing role of women in the military; Russia’s ongoing colonisation of the Crimean peninsula; the negative impact Nord Stream 2 will have on the country; a look at Odesa’s challenges; and much more. The issue concludes with a special focus on the security situation in the Eastern Flank to bring to light ongoing topics that are faced by NATO members in our region. The publication is in conjunction with the June 2021 NATO Summit and aims to contribute to the dialogue surrounding the NATO 2030 initiative.
