Asian Platform

The Asian region is undergoing profound changes that are leading to a reformatting of the regional and global international situation. The growing activity of China in Asia and the post-Soviet space prompts a new look at the opportunities, as well as the challenges and risks of cooperation with this country.

The US-China confrontation is reflected in the policies of many Asian countries, both US allies and China’s partners.

The Asian platform is a space for discussion, analytical materials, generation of new ideas about the political, socio-economic and security situation in Asia, as well as Ukraine’s interests in this region.
