Apart from the traditional assessment of the relations on Ukraine’s key foreign policy directions (the EU, the US, China and Russia), the participants discussed the rebuilding of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine, a special topic of this analytical issue.

Representatives of the National Security and Defense Council, Ukrainian Armed Forces, Ukroboronprom, and the Ministry of Defense, as well as Ukrainian experts and foreign diplomats took part in the discussion.

The publication “Ukraine’s Foreign Policy Audit. Index of Relations” is based on the monitoring and analysis of the events in the foreign policy of Ukraine by key areas: the EU, the US, China and Russia.

In addition to the permanent areas, the expert group will provide an analysis of a special topic, i.e. the most important event, issue or trend for the reporting period.

Besides by the experts’ observations, an important component of the research is exclusive interviews with Ukrainian officials responsible for certain areas in the foreign policy, Ukrainian and foreign experts.
