Since early 2014, several events at Monash University and at other universities with the involvement of Monash staff and visitors to Monash have sought to clarify the situation in Ukraine on the eve of, and after, the fall of the Yanukovych regime.
The downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on 18 July focussed unprecedented international attention on Ukraine. Professor Marko Pavlyshyn, director of the Mykola Zerov Centre for Ukrainian Studies, and other Monash academics have responded to multiple media inquiries about the contexts of this disaster.
