Alexander Duleba

The aim of this text is to make a prognosis for the development of bilateral relations with Ukraine and a strategy proposal for the development of Slovakia’s relations with Ukraine in the medium-term perspective (10 – 15 years). The strategy proposal is based on an analysis of the approach of the Slovak governments to relations with Ukraine to date, identification of interests of the Slovak Republic in bilateral relations, analysis of the medium-term prospect of the development of Ukraine in terms of its political stability and ability to continue with reforms and implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, and on an outline of scenarios for the medium-term developments in bilateral relations, including an assessment of the impact of the Russian-Ukrainian crisis since 2014 on Slovakia’s interests and international position.
