Amid war, Nova Post’s growth connects Ukraine’s large diaspora

Europe’s Ukrainian communities, vastly increased by forced displacement due to the Russian invasion, seek connections to home. The foreign expansion of Ukraine’s Nova Post stands at this crossroads, offering communication channels while fostering timely economic internationalization during a costly conflict. In Berlin, inputs from refugees and Serhii Symonov, the CEO of Nova Post Deutschland, shed light on this two-way affair.

Countdown to war – how populism grew while democracy fell silent

The year 2024 was never supposed to look like this. Europe at war. Its cities in the east reduced to rubble. Russian occupiers committing daily, medieval atrocities. And an assortment of radicalized populists, mobsters and extremists of all persuasions salivating over the prospect of Ukraine’s demise. Just how did we get to this point? How did fascism make such a comeback? And what have been the Free World’s biggest blunders that have brought us to the brink of a Third World War?

Recovery, reforms, or reconstruction? Results of the Ukraine Recovery Conference 2024

A competition of ideas, not of key stakeholders, is the formula for successful recovery. Scepticism within the country about the recovery process and reforms, as well as the germs of distrust, can only be overcome by the voices of the government and civil society.

Russia won the propaganda war in Barcelona

Following Russia’s inexcusable invasion of peaceful Ukraine in 2022, Ukrainian flags, ribbons and other signs of solidarity with this country under attack have been proudly displayed across democratic Europe. Shockingly, they are absent in Barcelona. Instead, quite open public support is lavished on neo-imperialist Russia.

So no one is left behind

Accompanying a police rescue team on civilian evacuation missions to Krasnohorivka, a town in the Donetsk region of Ukraine, the delicate situation on the front line becomes clear. Partially captured by the Russian army, the town presents a formidable challenge when it comes to saving life.

Why pacifism kills

In spite of Ukraine’s continued fight against Russian aggression, there are still many voices calling for peace at any cost. While such proposals may appear attractive on the surface, they ultimately benefit Moscow’s clear desire for further violence and terror on its own terms.

An involuntary war of economic models? The economies of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine in the first quarter of 2024

In October 2022, the Ukrainian researcher Volodymyr Ishchenko wrote a piece titled "Russia’s military Keynesianism". While the Kremlin – in his assessment – was implementing policies of statism and redistribution, Kyiv focused on the neoliberal limitation of state participation. Belarus – as it frequently happens, sadly – was omitted from this comparison despite likely looking much like Moscow.

Portugal just elected its weakest government in decades but Ukraine is still a matter of consensus

Most of Portugal’s foreign policy has been driven by its status as a member state of both NATO and the EU. Although geographically removed from the battlefield, Portuguese society is one of the most ardent believers in a Ukrainian victory. Even at a time of profound change in the political landscape, support for Kyiv will remain solid.

Finding Sweden’s role in a new NATO

Swedish Minister of Defence Pål Jonson said earlier this year that "war can come to us too." Meanwhile, Minister of Civil Defence Carl Bohlin has appealed to the public to "mentally prepare for the outbreak of war”. Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces Micael Bydén has even warned that war in Ukraine is not the Kremlin’s ultimate goal but only a step to tear down the existing rules-based international order. In March 2024, Sweden officially became the 32nd member of NATO. However, the road for this Nordic country, which has not been at war since 1814, to join the strongest defence alliance in the history of the world has not been easy.
