International politics and security

56

XX ECONOMIC FORUM

The politics made by Yushchenko’s team, which failed, was a break in this policy. According to Kozhara, Ukraine witnessed a clear change of the paradigm and accents in the foreign policy of Ukraine. Today’s foreign policy, promoted by the President and the government, is more prac- tical and oriented at the specic economic and business interests of the country. This policy led to the acknowledgement of the o-bloc status of Ukraine in the system of security, which was expected by the Ukrainian society. It also won recognition in the structures of NATO as well as, e.g. in the USA. Ukraine made a radical change in the policy towards Russia, which led to the renewal of relations and institutions involved in this cooperation. Eduard Prutnik, the President of the United World Foundation (Jedynyj Svit), pointed out that the neutral status of Ukraine was not its arbitrary choice but the requirement imposed by international situation. This shall not mean that Ukraine is unwilling to cooperate with NATO - it simply does not want to belong to obsolete structures of mass security.
