The Russian and Eurasia Program has been actively involved in political developments in Ukraine. Initiatives in the past have included a working group on Ukrainian elections and the Election Delegations to Ukraine project—contributing to an exchange of ideas on pertinent subjects between CSIS and Ukrainian experts. On occasion, CSIS experts hold seminars which focus on subjects specific to Ukraine such as Russia-Ukraine relations, democratic development, and energy security.

Additionally, the Russia and Eurasia program continually tracks political developments in Ukraine and provides assessments of issues as they arise.
