Ukraine’s Transformation:

Assessments and Solutions


5 July 2017


Lancaster House, London, UK

Since 2014 Ukraine has been facing challenges unprecedented in recent history, as it tries to transform its ineffective state while constantly under the pressure of Russian military aggression. Success in unlocking economic potential depends upon securing boarders, eliminating corruption and establishing a rule of law. The government in Kyiv has undertaken a series of reforms in attempt to open the country to the West, increase transparency and stabilize the economy. But much remains to be done.


With coverage of Ukraine largely absent from the Western media, this Chatham House conference will provide a high-level ‘warts and all’ discussion about Ukraine’s successes and its failures. Does Ukraine matter for European security? If so, how? What are the domestic political impediments to change? How can economic growth be kick-started?


The speakers include:

Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze, Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, Ukraine

James Sherr, Associate Fellow, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Chatham House

Oleksiy Melnyk, Co-Director, Razumkov Centre, Ukraine

Francis Malige, Managing Director, Eastern Europe and the Caucasus, EBRD

Oleksandr Danyliuk, Minister of Finance, Ukraine

Ron van Rooden, Assistant Director, European Department, IMF 

Lenna Koszarny, Founding Partner, CEO, Horizon Capital

Peter Wagner, Head, EU-Ukraine Support Group 

Dmytro Shymkiv, Deputy Head of Administration of the President, Ukraine

Jerzy Pomianowski, Executive Director, European Endowment for Democracy

Taras Shevchenko, Co-chair, Reanimation Reform Package, Ukraine

Andreas Prothmann, Head of Ukraine Taskforce, German Foreign Office


This Chatham House conference will take place the day before a joint UK-Ukraine hosted intergovernmental Ukraine reform conference on 6 July, which will bring together Ukraine's international partners to launch its Reform Action Plan 2017-20 in front of the international community.
