Dear readers, here we are preparing the Russia-Ukraine Conflict Summary PDF for all of you. Ukraine has undergone dramatic changes since the country’s 2013-2014 Revolution of Dignity (also known as the Euromaidan Revolution). Forced to confront a Russian invasion and occupation of Ukraine’s Crimea region,
a Russian-led separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine, and a tightening of Russian control in the nearby Sea of Azov and the Black Sea, Ukraine has developed a military capable of territorial defense, reversed a decline in economic growth, implemented reforms, maintained a democratic path, and gained formal independence for the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

Ukraine continues to grapple with serious challenges. Since 2019, Ukraine has been governed by President Volodymyr Zelensky and his Servant of the People party. During Zelensky’s presidency, Ukraine has enacted difficult economic and governance reforms, albeit with some resistance and delays, and grappled with the social and economic consequences of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
President Zelensky also has attempted to reinvigorate the conflict resolution process with regard to Russia-occupied eastern Ukraine has drawn greater international attention to the situation in Ukraine’s occupied Crimea region. Russia, however, appears no closer to implementing a permanent ceasefire or withdrawing its military forces from Ukraine.
The United States has long supported Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty, democratic trajectory, and governance reforms. Since 2014, many Members of Congress have condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, promoted sanctions against Russia for its actions, and supported increased economic and security aid to Ukraine. In 2019, U.S. relations with Ukraine became a prominent issue in U.S. domestic affairs, as the House of Representatives agreed to articles of impeachment related in part to alleged presidential actions regarding Ukraine; the Senate acquitted President Trump of the charges in 2020.
This report provides an overview of Ukraine’s domestic politics and reform challenges; Ukraine’s conflict with Russia; the Ukrainian economy; and Ukraine’s relations with the United States, the European Union (EU), and NATO.
