Donbas and Crimea: return at what price?

This Monograph is a comprehensive study of the war at the Donbas and the annexation of Crimea from the perspective of the National Security of Ukraine prepared by experts of the National Institute for Strategic Studies. It describes how Russia's military aggression can be seen as a stress-test for global and national security, as well as a catalyst for the restarting of Ukraine's foreign policy. Authors also analyze reasons and consequences of a temporary loss of control of some of Ukrainian territories. Particular emphasis is put on the position of Ukraine and approaches of EU and Russia in the Minsk process for resolving the situation in Donbas. Reintegration terms and recovery priorities for Donbas are outlined. The ways to overcome social consequences of Russian military aggression against Ukraine are defined. Experts provide prognoses for development of situation in Donbas and Crimea with focus on possible scenarios of the future of Ukraine in a globalized world.


This study is fundamentally different from all previous attempts made by scientists in various fields of knowledge, journalists and civil activists to highlight the delicate topic of the annexation of the Crimea and the war in Donbas.
