Expert Q&A with Melinda Haring

Melinda Haring is a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute’s Eurasia Center and the deputy director of the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center.

During the discussion with Ukrainian diplomats, the expert shared her views on:

  • Biden’s meetings with Putin in Geneva and its significance for Ukraine;
  • NATO’s position on threats from Moscow and membership prospects for Ukraine;
  • the forthcoming meeting of the Presidents of America and Ukraine – the Crimean Platform.

If the democratic reform project in Ukraine succeeds, then Russia can succeed. Ukraine is important because people should get to choose their own future. There are a lot of Americans who are inspired by that.
