What Can Ukraine Bring to the 2021 Summit for Democracy?

On December 1, 4:30 PM by Kyiv, 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: “What Can Ukraine Bring to the 2021 Summit for Democracy?”.

We will be joined by leading experts to discuss steps that Ukraine should take to advance human rights and address corruption and threats posed by authoritarians.

On December 9–10, 2021, President Biden will host a virtual Summit for Democracy that will bring together leading international officials, civil society, the private sector, and other actors to discuss three key challenges impacting democracy globally: growing authoritarianism, corruption, and human rights abuses. 

Ukraine and the struggle of the Ukrainian people to advance democracy, security, prosperity, and Euroatlantic integration over the last three decades and in the face of internal and external challenges has received significant global attention and resources. Today, Ukraine remains on the cutting edge in defending its own democracy and strengthening it in the region—but that progress remains uneven and constantly tested. Russian aggression in Crimea, Donbas, and across Ukraine continues, and Ukrainians remain in an ongoing battle to restore their nation’s territorial integrity and build a strong, resilient democratic state. 

The Summit for Democracy is an opportunity for Ukraine to take center stage, deepen its democracy commitments, and chart a path forward for a more secure future.

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.
