Special Issue, 10 March 2016                        UKRAINE ANALYTICAL DIGEST
​Dear Reader,

The Ukrainian Think Tanks Liaison Office in Ukraine has reached its second birthday. We are happy to celebrate this date with you.

These last few weeks have been eventful for us. We organised the first ever Brussels UkraineLab 2016 – an exercise we intend to repeat 
and took full part in the first Ukraine Week at the European Parliament.

In this Special Issue of the Ukraine Analytical Digest we would like to tell you our story and share with you the views and impressions of our first years of our members and partners.

Most of all we would like to thank members and partners alike for their support over this initial period. We undertake to develop fresh thinking and new ideas in our own support for Ukraine's progress towards sustainable prosperity and real democracy.

Much has been accomplished – in Ukraine and by our Office. Much more remains to be attempted. Exciting times lie ahead, for all of us.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Olena Prystayko
Executive Director
