Foredrag: Hva skjer egentlig i Ukraina?

 

Forsvarsattache i Kiev, Kommandørkaptein Hans Petter Midttun, foredro 24. april 2017, i Oslo militære samfund, om Ukraina sett fra hans øyne, og da understreket i egenskap av ham selv og ikke i kraft av sin stilling.

Hele hans foredrag ligger her både som transkript og som podcast:

Foredrag: Hva skjer egentlig i Ukraina?

 

I dag omtaler verken norsk eller internasjonal presse knapt konflikten. Konflikten i Ukraina har på linje med Afghanistan, Libya og migrasjonskrisen blitt den nye normal situasjonen og tiltrekker seg derfor knapt mediets oppmerksomhet.

Det er derfor et tankekors at sikkerhetssituasjonen i dag er mer alvorlig enn for tre år siden.

Final report from DIRECT-FLIGHTS: Norway-Ukraine

 

Dear friends,

Our final report from the Direct-Flights: Norway-Ukraine project is now available.

The project ran at our web-site www.maidan.no/direct-flights, between 3 February and 1 March 2017, and consisted of:

  • Travel Survey for current and potential travellers between Norway and Ukraine
  • Petition to support the project
  • Norwegian-Ukrainian Video Contest

We want to sincerely thank all of you for taking your time to participate in our project. 588 people answered our Travel Survey, 1239 people signed our petition and we received 4 contributions for our video-contest.

The winner of the 3 prizes of NOK 300 for participating in the Travel Survey was Nataliya BevzaKhrystyna Dynko and  mashtaler85@yahoo.com. (Will the latter please get in touch with us?)

The winner of the Norwegian-Ukrainian Video Contest was The Ukrainian School in Oslo, and all the contributions can be seen at Facebook-page for the project.

Status.

When can we expect direct flights between Norway and Ukraine?

On March 2nd, ambassador of Ukraine to Norway, Viacheslav Yatsiuk, together with Kjartan Pedersen, managing director of Norwegian-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (NUCC), had a meeting with Norwegian Air Shuttle. For the meeting, NUCC shared the preliminary report from the Direct Flights project (Norwegian has since received the final report as well).

The outcome of the meeting with Norwegian was promising. Norwegian Air Shuttle is indeed looking into the prospects of resuming flights between Oslo and Kyiv. That said, nothing has been decided yet, but the word is that such flights may start this autumn or spring 2018. This also coincides with the information we have received back from Avinor.

The final report has also been shared with the Norwegian embassy in Kyiv, relevant airport authorities in Norway and Ukraine, relevant airline companies, together with tourism, conference and investment agencies in Ukraine and Norway.

Yours,

Hallvard Fagerland,
leader, Maidan Norway
