Two 'must see' videos

If you have a spare hour do watch this video of a recent Hromadske.tv/Atlantic Council discussion, entitled:

'From Revolution to Reform'

entirely in English, with British journalist David Patrikarakos, Ukrainian Minister of Economic Development PavloSheremeta, the impressive, passionate Hanna Hopko [more about this rising star here], and Adrian Karatnycky. [Actually starts about 5 minutes into the video]

Also this video, also all in English, from

Wroclaw Global Form 2014 - Plenary Panel 4 — Building a New Ukraine: A Pillar of European Security?

Panelists: Paula Dobriansky, former US Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs; Carl Gershman, President, National Endowment for Democracy; Senator Ron Johnson, US Senate; Jacek Saryusz-Wolski, Member of European Parliament; Ievgen Vorobiov, Analyst, Polish Institute of International Affairs
Moderator: Matthew Kaminski, Member of Editorial Board, The Wall Street Journal

p.s. I really liked this from John O'Sullivan in the 'Spectator' 

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain – what Putin's really up to

Russia’s foreign policy has become a ‘Wizard of Oz’ mixture of fake grandiosity and real menace
