Ukraine Is Really a Testing Ground

Western democracies are under threat from outside meddling, and Ukraine is the testing ground for this interference. Former Assistant Secretary of State David J. Kramer looks at why Ukraine’s position on the frontline of freedom has led to increase foreign interference in Ukraine and why the West must pay attention to possible influence operations in the upcoming March 2019 presidential elections.

David Kramer is a senior fellow with the Vaclav Havel Program for Human Rights and Diplomacy, Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs, Florida International University and team leader of the Ukrainian Election Task Force.
