The Wilson Center Launches “Ukraine in Europe” Initiative

The Global Europe Program is joining the Kennan Institute to focus on the realities of a war that is reshaping the continent. “That war is far from over, of course,” said Ambassador Mark Green, president and CEO of the Wilson Center. “But a new Ukraine is emerging from the conflict which is unified in its plans to integrate with Europe and also—when the time is right—to lead an effort to build a new, stronger Ukraine…which would have major implications for the entire region.”
