Thematic issue devoted to European integration

 Dear researchers,

On February 20, 2014, the russian army launched the seizure of the Crimean peninsula, and therefore, it was the day when russia violated international law for the first time that was qualified as an act of aggression against Ukraine. On that day, in Kyiv, the Ukrainian criminal authorities shot everyone who defended the European integration aspirations of the Ukrainian people on the Maidan. In fact, the russia-Ukraine war began on that very day; it was triggered by the European vector of Ukraine’s development. On February 24, 2022, russia unleashed a full-scale invasion, committing thousands of war crimes against the civilian population of Ukraine.

On June 23, 2022, Ukraine was granted EU candidate status, which once again legally consolidated the European integration choice of the Ukrainian people, which they continue to defend in the war, at the pan-European level.
