What is the future for Ukraine that Ukrainians would appreciate and the world would accept? What should Ukraine change while at war? Which countries are the role models?

17 Ukrainian experts with experience in various areas got together early March 2012, when they all foresaw Yanukovych’s fall. But Ukraine after Yanukovych was as unclear, and opposition to the incumbent president already made this mistake once – when Maidan in 2004 was too focused on defeating Kuchma, and neglected the agenda for post-Kuchma.

After three years of work, on February 24 the Nestor Group has presented the concept of its Vision for Ukraine in Kyiv. On March 11 one of the co-authors will be in London, to present the document here.
