Background
In April, the government that came into power two months earlier in Ukraine launched what it termed an “anti-terrorist operation” against the people of Eastern Ukraine.

They were opposing the government’s sharp turn to economic association with Western Europe and were demanding more voice in central government decisions.

That political conflict, NATO’s backing of Kyiv against Russia, and the large-scale humanitarian crisis created by the war are shaking the political foundations of Europe.

What are the origins of this conflict? What led to the ceasefire? What does the future hold? How can Ukrainians and others act to arrive at negotiated solutions to the complex issues at stake?
