Ukraine’s ex-Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has made an appearance on the BBC Hardtalk show hosted by Stephen Sackur.
Yatsenyuk, who left the prime minister office nearly a year ago in April 2016 and was replaced by Volodymyr Groysman, followed other top Ukrainian politicians who appeared on Hardtalk in recent years, namely President Petro Poroshenko, ex-Odesa governor Mikheil Saakashvili and Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko.
The interview focused on the blockade of the trade between Kyiv and the territories occupied by Russian-separatist forces, the possible effect of Donald Trump’s presidency on Ukraine, and the Minsk peace deal that was supposed to stop the war in the eastern part of Ukraine – but doesn’t seem to work.
