Ties with civilians of the occupied Donbas: Maintain them or you may lose it

Presentation of Kalmius Group report "Ties with civilians of the occupied Donbas: Maintain them or you may lose it"  took place in Kyiv on April 13. 
The research revealed a number of factors which, directly or indirectly, in the near future or in the long run, will influence the process of setting up or maintaining ties with civilians of the occupied Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

The authors of the research answered the following questions:

- Civilians in occupied areas of Donbas: “friends” or “foes” for the rest of Ukraine? How the ongoing war influenced the attitude towards the average civilians of uncontrolled areas of Donbas?

- How important is it to care for the maintenance of connections with average civilians in occupied areas of Donbas? When this issue is to be on the agenda: “yesterday”, today or in a distant future?

- Unutilized resources: What can favor the preservation of horizontal, social connections with civilians left behind the contact line?

- Obvious and latent obstacles: What hinders the preservation of social connections between Donbas and the rest of Ukraine?

- How political negotiations and readiness of Ukrainians to seek compromise aimed at the resolution of the conflict, influence the prospects of social reintegration of the region?
