Jim Slattery on Ukraine-U.S. Relations

Jim Slattery, former House member from Kansas (and the leader of my delegation to Kyiv in October and also part of the monitoring team I joined in December for the rerun of the runoff election) has an op-ed in The Hill on 10 things the U.S. should do for and with the new government in Ukraine. It's worth reading, even if I wasn't already on record as supporting more rapid tourist and student visa processing, greater student exchanges, graduation of Ukraine from Jackson-Vanik, and increased aid to assist with economic development (and ultimately EU integration).
