Ukraine's Parliamentary Elections

July 29, 2019 - 12:30 pm

Washington, DC

Please join the Atlantic Council for an event entitled Ukraine’s Parliamentary Elections on Monday, July 29, 2019 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor, West Tower Elevators, Washington, DC 20005). Lunch will be provided and available at 12:00 p.m.

The July 2019 parliamentary elections are a pivotal event in Ukraine’s history as the people voted to elect a new parliament, which will form a new government. Running with a strong anti-corruption message, then political outsider Volodymyr Zelenskyy won a crushing victory in April’s presidential elections and again in the Rada elections, where his party secured an outright majority by winning 254 of 424 seats, a historic result and the most decisive of its kind in Ukraine since 1991. Zelenskyy may now have the mandate he needs to implement his anti-corruption program.

Come join us to hear the views of some of the best-informed observers this side of the Dnipro on the election results and their meaning for Ukraine’s reform program and defensive war in Donbas.  

We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
