Europe and the EU

Keynote By Ukranian Deputy MFA Emine Dzhaparova
14 Jun 2022 15:00 - 16:30

The Clingendael Institute cordially invites to attend our public event on June 14th with the First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Emine Dzhaparova.

Ms. Dzhaparova will address Ukraine's bid for EU candidacy status, Dutch-Ukraine relations, and the current situation in Ukraine, including the Crimean Peninsula. She will be joined by Mr. Robert Serry, former and first Dutch Ambassador to Ukraine. The discussion will be moderated by Bob Deen, Coordinator of the Clingendael Russia and Eastern Europe Centre.

In 2021 Ms. Dzhaparova spearheaded Ukraine’s diplomatic initiative “Crimea Platform”. The discussion will therefore also zoom in on the specific situation and geopolitical position of the Crimean Peninsula, which Ambassador Serry and Mr. Deen visited together in March 2014 shortly before it was annexed illegally by the Russian Federation.
