In May 2014 the Institute of Contemporary Development presented the report “Deadlock in the Struggle of Integrations in Europe” to the participants of the Baltic Forum. The choice of Ukraine and (to a lesser extent) of Moldova in favour of the EU integration project and the challenges associated with this choice were described there.
The authors came to the conclusion that the economic and financial burden of solving socio-economic problems in Ukraine and the development of the economy to even minimal growth would be unsustainable separately both for the EU (with other partners) and Russia together with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). Therefore, all parties should be interested in joint efforts, including removal of the emerging economic and trade barriers. This is dictated by the economy over which political considerations have been dominating so far. Please find full report here.
