2017 will be largely critical year for the entire Europe, including Ukraine.

This is stated in the report “Post-Truth, Post-West, Post-Order?”, prepared by the Munich Security Conference before its opening on February 17, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from Germany.

"For Ukrainians and the rest of Europe, 2017 – with upcoming elections in major European countries and a new US administration – will be a critical year," reads the report, presented by Chairman of the Munich Security Conference Wolfgang Ischinger on February 13.

Despite decreasing international attention, the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine is “far from frozen,” notes Alexander Hug, the Deputy Chief of the OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission. The report’s authors say that although the full implementation of the Minsk agreements seems far away, an increasing number of politicians have speculated about an overhaul of the EU sanctions, which are explicitly linked to those very agreements.
