Can one be an optimist about Ukraine?

When I visited the UK recently I was invited to visit the central office of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) in Notting Hill to meet members of the Association and to give a short talk.

A couple of people have told me they enjoyed the speech and so we have now placed it online in English and Ukrainian. It sets out some of the challenges facing Ukraine; the reasons why I remain an optimist; and my experience of people all over this excellent country who are proud to be Ukrainian.

I’ve greatly enjoyed working with the AUGB for the last few years and am grateful to them for welcoming me so warmly last month as well as on my previous visits to Notting Hill.  Fascinating to meet the audience, too.  Thanks again.
