SIPRI launched the Ukrainian translation of SIPRI Yearbook 2018 at an event held at the Razumkov Centre (the Ukrainian Centre for Economic and Political Studies).

The launch took place on 3 October during a roundtable on foreign and security policy entitled ‘Foreign and Security Policy after the Renewal of Government: Continuity, Changes and Prospects’. The event was jointly organized by the Razumkov Centre and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom in Ukraine.

Hard copies of the Ukrainian translation of SIPRI Yearbook 2018 are provided to the Ukrainian Parliament, all relevant ministries and state agencies, and to Ukraine’s main universities and regional public libraries. It is also available for free in PDF format on the Razumkov Centre’s website.

For many policymakers and experts in Ukraine, the translated edition of the SIPRI Yearbook has become one of the most reliable sources of data and analytical information in the area of international security, arms control and non-proliferation. The translation has been made possible primarily because of the long-term cooperation between SIPRI and the Razumkov Centre, and with the financial support of the Swiss Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport.
