NSS 2014 The Hague
August 18, 2014 Since I arrived in Ukraine last summer, a lot has happened and changed in the country. The Maidan movement and protests showed the extent of the social transformation of Ukraine. A new government and a new president took office, and urgent reforms of the Ukrainian state and economy were initiated. On June 27th, President Poroshenko signed the full Association Agreement with the EU, which includes the free trade agreement. As an inherent part of the reform agenda, Ukraine made a clear choice for European association. Simultaneously, Russia’s pressure on Ukraine has increased, to the point of violating territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. Many innocent people lost their lives; on and around Maidan Square, during the fire in Odesa, in the Donbass region, and most recently as a result of the tragic crash of MH17. This crash cost the lives of 298 people, of whom 196 Dutch nationals.
August 11, 2014 The last two weeks our civil, humanitarian mission to recover the victims of the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has been able to work in Ukraine. We are very grateful that our forensic experts and unarmed police officers have been given that opportunity by the local, regional and national authorities. / На протяжении последних двух недель наша гражданская гуманитарная миссия по поиску жертв катастрофы рейса Малайзийских Авиалиний МН17 имела возможность работать в Украине. Мы благодарны за эту возможность, предоставленную местными, региональными и государственными властями нашим криминалистам и безоружным полицейским.
