The Other Dimension of Ukraine's Civil Society: Q&A with Svitlana Krasynska

Why are Ukrainians less involved in civil society than citizens in some Western countries? Why have Western donors’ attempts to build nonprofit institutions in Ukraine enjoyed only limited success?

What will Zelensky do with this consolidated power?
