Disgraced president Viktor Yanukovych speaks out from exile in Russia as thousands gather for pro-Putin rally in Moscow
Ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych has controversially spoken out from self-imposed exile in Russia, promising, exactly a year after he fled Kiev, to return to Ukraine to “ease people’s lives” and help stop the war.
Yanukovych’s interview with Russia’s state-owned Channel One was his first public appearance since he gave two bizarre press conferences in Rostov-on-Don in February and March 2014, claiming he remained Ukraine’s president.
‘We’re getting ready to hold more rallies, mobilise people and show that Mariupol is a Ukrainian city’

"The EU and Member States lacked good intelligence-gathering capacity on the ground. The lack of an integrated and co-ordinated foreign policy was also evident." - The EU and Russia: before and beyond the crisis in Ukraine

The EU and Russia: before and beyond the crisis in Ukraine

SUMMARY OF CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

p. 96:

22. The first step is for the EU to distinguish between the legitimate and the illegitimate security interests of Russia. Moscow has a right not to be excluded from the eastern neighbourhood. However, it does not have the right to deny or threaten the sovereign rights of its neighbours.

p. 97:

27. An element of ‘sleep-walking’ was evident in the run-up to the crisis in Ukraine, and important analytical mistakes were made by the EU. Officials in Brussels as well as Member States’ embassies all participate in the EU foreign policy process, but all seem to have missed the warning signs. The EU and Member States lacked good intelligence-gathering capacity on the ground. The lack of an integrated and co-ordinated foreign policy was also evident.(Paragraph 215)

p. 98:

31. We welcome Member States uniting around an ambitious package of sanctions on Russia. (Paragraph 258)

37. The Minsk Protocol is not being implemented, violence is escalating and with it the risk of a de facto annexation of part of Ukraine. A ceasefire, however desirable, is not in itself a permanent solution: the dismemberment of a sovereign independent state is not acceptable. (Paragraph 269)

p. 99:

45. Building a Ukraine that is economically successful and secure in its energy supply will need Russian co-operation. The trilateral process, whereby the EU, Russia and Ukraine are engaging in discussions about the impact of the EU-Ukraine Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area, could be a useful template to discuss the broader Ukraine-Russia economic relationship. (Paragraph 286)

p. 101:

58. The EU and Member States must pursue a dual-track policy. In the short term, there must be a strong credible response to Russian actions in eastern Ukraine, involving a tough sanctions policy and a strong enforcement of rules. In the long term, the capacity to bring about political change is more likely to be successful if coupled with a willingness to engage with Russia on broader issues. Starting a serious dialogue on issues of shared interest, such as a common economic space and a shared security architecture, as well as cultural co-operation and educational exchanges, could have a positive effect both on public opinion in Russia and on the adversarial mindset present in official circles. (Paragraph 346)

62. It would be a failure of imagination and diplomacy if the crisis in Ukraine were to result in a long-lasting era of colder relations and reduced cooperation not only at the political, but also the cultural, level. (Paragraph 350)
