Ukraine

Ukrainian startups vie for $18 million in state grants

https://www.kyivpost.com/technology/...te-grants.html

Not meaning to go off topic but such grants could kick start the UK economy - or is such assistance already available?

From what I have heard venture capital is difficult to obtain and imo far more useful than pouring cash into failing industries.

Re: War in Ukraine

A UK - Ukraine free trade agreement will help to secure the UK's food security post-Brexit.

The Chairman of the British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (BUCC) writes an open letter to the International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox calling for "a new free trade agreement between the UK and Ukraine as soon as possible".

The UK and Ukraine are strategic partners on both security and trade, and there is an opportunity to deepen these important ties with a new free trade agreement, bringing real benefits to our countries, as you have earlier observed at a BUCC Conference on the potential benefits of UK-Ukraine free trade.

I know from discussions in Ukraine that the Ukrainian Government is willing to act very quickly to get an agreement in place. As we move towards Britain’s exit from the EU, developing close trading links with strategic partners like Ukraine should be paramount to Britain’s continued economic success.

This new trade agreement would have the following five major benefits.

A win-win for both sides
The financial benefits of a UK-Ukraine trade deal outside of the EU will create a win-win situation for both countries. For example, the UK imports more than half of the food we consume, while Ukraine is a leading food exporter. A bilateral trade deal tailored to each country’s needs, without compromises to protect other members of a wider economic bloc, will bring direct benefits to both sides.

Food that compromises on cost, not quality
Ukraine is the ‘breadbasket’ of Europe, with a third of the world’s finest black soil, based on which it is the world’s second largest grain exporter (wheat, corn and barley). As it builds leading food technologies, Ukraine is increasingly a high-quality producer with efficient production costs. Brexit gives the UK the opportunity to achieve significantly cheaper food prices by negotiating trade deals with major food producing countries such as Ukraine.

Delivering UK food security
For the UK to link with greater, but less expensive, sources of food located near the UK, like Ukraine, also addresses a fundamental, long-term problem, which is the UK’s need for food security in a world where, in the not very distant future, the world is expected to no longer produce enough to feed everyone. Food shipments to the UK by truck and rail from Ukraine can arrive in days.

An easier trade deal to negotiate
Ukraine is a largely agrarian based economy with food products constituting its principal exports, so the UK’s negotiation of better trading terms than under the EU’s DCFTA with Ukraine should be relatively straight-forward, quick and impactful.

Enhances UK export of services and manufactured goods into Ukraine
Ukraine represents a significant market of 43 million people and, as the country recovers from the effects of the conflict on its eastern border, the demand for greater imports of the UK’s financial, legal, accounting and other services, as well as UK manufactured cars and other goods, should rapidly grow under a new agreement facilitating trade.

Time is of the essence. We look forward to your securing a joint statement for trade between the UK and Ukraine as soon as possible.

Re: Ukraine

On Tuesday, February 4, Ukraine has to pay USD 135 million to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
This follows from the schedule of Ukraine’s payments to the IMF, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

In particular, Ukraine has to pay 98.5 million in special drawing rights equalling over USD 135 million in compliance with the National Bank’s official hryvnia exchange rate as at February 4.

The payment will be provided within the framework of the EFF (Extended Fund Facility) program.

In 2020, Ukraine is expected to pay about USD 1.4 billion to the IMF.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, late in 2014, the IMF adopted the credit program for Ukraine for USD 17.01 billion, and early in May, it provided the first tranche of a stand-by loan for USD 3.19 billion.

Was the security of Ukraine’s food supply to UK ever in doubt?

And I’m not sure which additional UK products and services we need that could not be sourced faster & cheaper elsewhere.

It is difficult to understand how Brexit would impact on trade relations that will doubtless continue as before – with annual bilateral trade of around $2 Bn Ukraine is hardly a new trade partner!

Nevertheless no news is better than bad news.

And the statement that Ukraine is recovering from the effects of war is somewhat premature - the war is ongoing

Re: Ukraine

Pompeo's visit to Kyiv: Mission of apology or control?

"It's Washington that needs the Ukraine visit of U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo more than Kyiv. The "leaked conversation scandal", created as a result of Trump's miscalculations apparently hurt bilateral relations between Ukraine and the United States. After all, the U.S. President's statements about "the most corrupt" country and people have made Ukraine toxic.

Kremlin network blaming Ukraine for MH17 crash

"With the approach of the MH17 trial set to start March 2020, the Kremlin is trying to discredit the findings of the Joint Investigation Team to escape from responsibility for the downing of the civilian jet over the Donbas in July 2014.

Return of 2 Suspected Euromaidan Shooters to Kyiv.

“Oleksandr Marynchenko and Serhiy Tamtura, two former members of the Berkut special riot police force implicated in a February 20, 2014 shooting on Instytutska Street in Kyiv which claimed 58 lives, have returned to Kyiv following their exchange to occupied Donbas during the December 28 prisoner exchange. Another three ex-Berkut officers that were detained alongside them on the same charges have remained in non-government controlled territory in eastern Ukraine. This group includes the deputy commander of the Kyiv division of Berkut, Oleh Yanishevksiy, and two ex-officers from that division – Pavlo Abroskin and Serhey Zynchenko…”

Re: Ukraine

The EU must help strengthen civil society in Ukraine to bring peace and solidify the Euro-Atlantic democratic space.

Six years after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, three recent and unexpected events have reminded us what really is at stake in the several “frozen conflicts” that Moscow is skillfully choreographing.

First, the election in April 2019 of an unorthodox, promising new president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has reinvigorated Ukraine’s hopes for a Western, democratic future.

Second, Zelenskiy was hardly in office before an extortion attempt by the U.S. president, Donald Trump, pushed Ukraine to the center of a political drama, which is not yet over.

And third, changes in January 2020 in the government officials managing Russia’s Ukraine strategy has offered slivers of hope of flexibility from Moscow.

In all three cases, pressure on the EU to act in its neighborhood is much higher than is at first evident. Countries such as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine—which all have so-called frozen conflicts on their territories, most of which Moscow is helping sustain—are not far-away countries of little relevance. They are on the front line. They are key building blocks of a democratic and secure Europe. At stake is not merely Europe’s desire for a tidy “neighborhood,” but rather the future of a “Europe whole and free.”

Failure to act will suggest to Russian President Vladimir Putin that he has both the United States and the EU in his pocket…

Even worse, rather than being branded as the aggressor, Russia was granted a privileged position as one of the peacekeepers. Putin enjoys the cover provided by the Minsk agreements. He (with Obama’s support) was the clear winner of round one…

Even so, the December meeting in Paris was notable. By standing firm against the three Normandy potentates, Zelenskiy clearly won round two. Now there can be real hope for Ukrainian democracy.

Zelenskiy’s success might push round three forward. A deal may be possible. Under pressure at home to end the war, his success in Paris could give Zelenskiy confidence to seek a deal. Putin’s recent political maneuvers, which included sacking his main Ukraine adviser, suggests the Russian president may feel some urgency as well.

And after revelations of his attempts to blackmail the Ukrainian president, Trump now has no option other than to expand American support for a country that his own secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, claims Americans cannot even find on a map…

That is Europe’s challenge—and responsibility.
