Donate


Ukraine’s prime minister Arseny Yatsenyuk has called on American investors to buy the country’s state assets, especially in the energy sector. More than 300 strategically important companies are on offer – including coal-mining industries, agriculture and sea ports. Plus, there’s more than 30 million hectares of farmland in Ukraine that might also go on sale – the government is weighing the option. Richard Sakwa, professor of Russian and European politics and the author of “Frontline Ukraine: Crisis in the Borderlands” is In the Now, talking both about Ukraine’s economic woes and political stagnation.
