The Reanimation Package of Reforms Coalition and the German Marshall Fund of the United States will organize The Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine (TTFU) special briefing on: “The rule of law, anti-corruption and media: New prospects for reforms in Ukraine?”.
The event will take place on Monday, February 22, 2021, 16:00 р.m. – 18:00 р.m. by Kyiv.
While a new Administration in Washington opens the door to improved U.S-Ukraine relations and continued engagement, Kyiv still struggles to advance needed democratic reforms and the rule of law, combat corruption, and reform the media. Ukraine’s western partners, including US and EU, are likely to include these issues at the top of their agendas with Kyiv. The recent adoption by the Parliament of the Anti-Corruption Strategy for 2020-2024 in the first reading as well as the recent banning of pro-Moscow media were welcomed by civil society and most international partners. But will this momentum continue? What else needs to be done to advance Ukraine’s largely stalled democracy agenda and how can the new environment for transatlantic cooperation contribute and accelerate progress as Ukrainians marks 30 years of its independence?

About the Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine (TTFU)
The task force was established in October 2018 by the German Marshall Fund of the United States and Reanimation Package of Reforms (RPR) with support from several civil society organizations in Ukraine, including the Ukraine Crisis Media Center. The main focus of the task force is to provide a real-time platform for stronger U.S., European and Ukrainian engagement and information sharing among policymakers, opinion-makers and civil society organizations on political, economic and security issues affecting Ukraine, its democratic transition and engagement with Western partners.
Given the state of global, regional and domestic challenges, including COVID19, facing the U.S., Europe and Ukraine the mission of TTFU is more important than ever to strengthen the transatlantic partnership with Ukraine and the region that continues to confront threats and hostile activities by Russian President Putin.
