The Future of Ukrainian Oligarchs

May 15, 2019, 2:00-3:00pm (RSVP requested)
5th Floor Conference Room, Wilson Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC

Join the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute for a talk with Victor Andrusiv on the Ukrainian economy and the influence of Ukraine's oligarchs. 

Twenty-seven years after independence, the Ukrainian economy continues to struggle. The broad influence of oligarchs, who rely on insider deals and hidden political connections to maximize their wealth, is one reason for Ukraine’s faltering development. Victor Andrusiv will present the findings of his new report, which details the influence of oligarchs on Ukrainian society, industry and politics and provides three potential scenarios for their future in Ukraine. 

RSVP is requested.


Victor Andrusiv, executive director, Ukrainian Institute for the Future
