AMBASSADOR'S BLOG - 12 BLOGS OF CHRISTMAS

30.12.11




With the New Year looming, here are 12 of my blogs from 2011:

January: Is Ukraine Free? (Freedom House rankings)

February: MI6, Art and Freedoms (“A Year with MI6”)

March: Brilliant British Business in Ukraine (British Business Days)

March: Down Syndrome: “Let Us In!” (Down Syndrome in the UK and Ukraine)

April: What I think about Ukraine (Oxford speech)

May: Life lessons from Deep Purple (British rockers in Kyiv)

June: The teenage traffic victim (road safety and the traffic police)

July: Justice and politics in Ukraine (trials of opposition leaders)

August: Ukraine: hand grenades in the polygon (military co-operation)

September: Tymoshenko in Yalta (trials of opposition leaders)

October: Back to the Café in Shanghai (Business climate)

December: Donetsk, Ukraine and the EU (Donetsk speech)

These aren’t necessarily my best or most important blogs, but I hope they illustrate some themes of 2011 and the scope of the embassy’s work. We’re still working to update all our links after our move to a new web-platform; but do feel free to navigate from these blogs to others on similar subjects, or indeed read the whole collection.

Happy New Year!
