Please join the Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine (TTFU), the German Marshall Fund of the United States, and the Reanimation Package of Reforms for a virtual webinar focused on rule of law, democracy, and anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine. While a new administration in Washington opens the door to improved U.S.-Ukraine relations and continued engagement, Kyiv still struggles to advance needed democratic reforms and the rule of law, combat corruption, and reform the media. Ukraine’s Western partners, including United States and EU, are likely to include these issues at the top of their agendas with Kyiv. The Verkhovna Rada's recent adoption of the Anti-Corruption Strategy for 2020-2024 in the first reading as well as the recent banning of pro-Putin or pro-Kremlin media were welcomed by civil society and most international partners, but will this momentum continue? What else needs to be done to advance Ukraine’s largely stalled democracy agenda and how can the new environment for transatlantic cooperation contribute to and accelerate progress as Ukrainians mark 30 years of independence?
The Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine, led by the Reanimation Package of Reforms and the German Marshall Fund of the United States, was established in October 2018 as multi-multifaceted platform for greater U.S., EU, and transatlantic engagement with the Ukrainian government, civil society, and other actors. TTFU contributes to strengthening relations, advancing democratic and rule of law reforms and furthering Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration and security. The Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine is also supported by the German Marshall Fund’s Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation.
