TOK FM radio: Chairman of ODF’s Board shares his views on the developments in Ukraine

Chairman of the Board of the Open Dialog Foundation, Bartosz Kramek, talked to TOK FM about the developments in Ukraine. He described the truce declared by Poroshenko as a justified move from the point of view of diplomacy that demonstrates to the world a will to reach an agreement. At the same time, however, Kramek stated, that it gives the separatists an opportunity to re-arm and strengthen their positions. 

 As Kramek points out, after Russia’s initial successes – annexing Crimea – Putin is not able to take control of continental Ukraine, and as a result of separatists’actions Russia suffering a sharp decline in its international reputation and also from international sanctions. In Kramek’s view, Putin’s policy has been “a spectacular failure”.
