New Ukrainian authorities key to Black Sea regional security
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 4
By Elmira Tariverdiyeva - Trend:
It is possible to preserve security in the Black Sea region with a balanced position by the new Ukrainian authorities, expert from the Kiev Centre for Political Research and Conflict Studies Anton Finko said during a round table discussion in Baku on March 4.
The round table on 'Geopolitics of the Black Sea-Caspian region: Security Issues' was organised by the North-South Political Centre.
"If the Crimean problem remains a cause of discord, it will negatively affect the entire region," he said. "So, today international players' interference is important to stabilise the situation in the country."
A model of managed democracy, a model penetrating the country from abroad has been destroyed in Ukraine. Chaos won this model.
"The situation in the country shows a miscalculation of those forces," he said. "After the destabilisation and fall of the regime, chaos is still observed in the country as happened after the Arab Spring."
"There is no entity in Ukraine that can stabilise and resolve the situation, so the interference of outside players is important," he said.
As a result of mass protests in Ukraine, President Yanukovych was ousted on February 22. acting President Verkhovna Rada approved the new government which is preparing for early elections.
