What Next For Ukraine?

Kiev

My VOA analysis on what faces Petro Poroshenko can be found here.

The three biggest challenges, I think, are: seeing off the separatist insurgency in the east and repairing shattered relations with Moscow (obviously); delivering quickly on reforms  or face the wrath of the Maidan; and he will need to out-maneuver an old parliament that will block change, possibly encouraged by Yulia Tymoshenko to do so as she hovers ready to pounce, if Poroshenko crashes.

Now off home to the US for a few days rest before refocusing on the Middle East…..
