Abstract [en]

This study aims at examine what kind of interest the European Union (EU) have in promoting a democracy process in Eastern Europe. The study is a descriptive case study where the case Ukraine is used to draw general conclusions. The questions asked to pursue the aim are: why does the EU want to promote a democracy process in Ukraine, what kind of methods does the EU use  and why is Russia trying to prevent the EU-Ukraine development and instead supporting a Russia-Ukraine development. In this study an analytical model is created and used to analyze EU:s way in promoting democracy in Ukraine. The analyze model consists of six steps used to describe the general promotion of a democracy process and it’s applied in the empirical analysis. The empirical material is based on books, primary documents and EU:s official webpage.

One general conclusion of this study asserts that the primary interest of EU: s democracy process in Ukraine is economy and security. Another one affirms that Russia’s interest to prevent the EU-Ukraine development consists also of economy and security and especially security to prevent the development of NATO in Eastern Europe.
