Eurointegration processes were ‘postponed’ by the Ukrainian government in late November 2013.

The question is how the country could solve its serious economic and social problems in a new geopolitical situation. 

This decision could have long-term impact on the development of the country and its relations with the EU. Situation does not look optimistic for a number of other sectors of the national economy and for the state budget, as well. Termination of the Eurointegration could also lead to the important political changes after the Presidential elections in 2015.

Igor Yegorov is Deputy Director of the Institute for Economics and Forecasting of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and Professor at the Faculty of Economics at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv Has is working on policy issues in the post-Soviet countries and in Ukraine. He is the author of numerous publications, including articles in Science and Public Policy, Europe-Asia Studies and other leading journals on problems of science policy.
