It is a year since protests erupted in Ukraine. The events that followed saw the fall of Viktor Yanukovych, the annexation of Crimea and violent clashes breaking out across the east of the country.

As the stand off with Russia continues, we will be taking a view of the situation in Ukraine one year on. Will 2015 see an end to the most dangerous conflict to grip Europe since the wars in the former Yugoslavia?

With fighting ongoing, our panel will be exploring the divisions that have developed in the country and what the future holds for the unity of Ukraine.

The panel:

Andrey Kurkov, is an acclaimed Ukrainian writer and commentator. He is the author of many novels, including the bestsellingDeath and the Penguin. Last year he published Ukraine Diaries, a first-hand account of the ongoing crisis in his country.

Additional speakers to be announced.
