Multi-vector foreign policy of Ukraine. Багатовекторність зовнішньої політики України (ua)

the concept of foreign policy which emerged in the late 1990s.It aimed at establishing a balance of interests and foreign political activities of Ukraine in three core directions – Russian, European and Eastern (the Black Sea region and Asia). This Ukrainian multi-vector foreign policy was determined by the need of making a clear choice between two options – pro-Russian or pro-European. The relative balance of the vectors was temporary, and the ineffective multi-vector policy was finally ruined in consequence of the Revolution of Dignity at the end of 2013 – beginning of 2014.
