Ex-Ukrainian finance minister Natalie Jaresko, originally from Chicago, to oversee Puerto Rico economic crisis

A federal control board overseeing Puerto Rico's finances amid a dire economic crisis announced Thursday that it appointed Ukraine's former finance minister as its executive director.

The board's chairman said Natalie Jaresko served during a critical time in Ukraine's history from 2014 to 2016 as it faced a deep recession.

"Ukraine's situation three years ago, like Puerto Rico's today, was near catastrophic, but she worked with stakeholders to bring needed reforms that restored confidence, economic vitality and reinvestment in the country and its citizens. That's exactly what Puerto Rico needs today," said chairman Jose Carrion.

He said Jaresko was born in Chicago to Ukrainian immigrants and was chosen out of a group more than 300 candidates during a four-month search. She previously worked in various economic positions at the U.S. State Department and also co-founded private equity fund manager Horizon Capital, where she served as CEO. As Ukraine's finance minister, she maintained a strong reputation with Western governments and investors and helped negotiate a deal to restructure the country's $15 billion debt after its economy contract by nearly 18 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

Jaresko, 51, grew up in west suburban Wood Dale, and later moved to Chicago's Ukrainian Village neighborhood.

Even as she spoke mostly English at home, her parents insisted that their children attend Ukrainian Saturday school and Ukrainian Orthodox church on Sunday.

"Monday through Friday, we were very American. On Saturday and Sunday, we were very Ukrainian, between Ukrainian school, seeing our grandparents and going to church," Jaresko told the Tribune in 2015.

She showed an inclination for political engagement from a young age. As a 21-year-old accounting major at DePaul University in 1986, she organized a vigil at Daley Plaza days after the Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine. The event, which she emceed, attracted 500 people, including more than 20 bishops, priests and ministers.

Jaresko said in a statement that she will pursue a decisive and successful recovery for Puerto Rico..................

Putin’s desire for a new Russian empire won’t stop with Ukraine

Over the past decade Europe has sleepwalked into an increasingly precarious and less safe place. The postwar order that provided so much peace and stability across the continent appears to be breaking up.

Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, as much as rejoiced in this at the recent Munich security conference when he spoke of the a new “post-west” era in Europe. Reversing the breakup of the Soviet Union and restoring the Russian empire have now become an obsession for the Kremlin. There are three things central to understanding what motivates Russia, and how Vladimir Putin’s government works.

The first is Russkiy mir – “Russian world”: a philosophy that harks back to the Soviet era. Central to it is the belief that Ukraine is part of a greater Russia. In 1991, after the breakup of the Soviet Union, Russia was too weak to resist when more than 92% of my fellow Ukrainians voted for an independence we had hungered for over centuries. Gradually, however post-Soviet Russia has sought to exert its influence over my country, and when in 2014 a popular revolution ousted Viktor Yanukovych, it was more than Russia could stomach.

It subsequently illegally annexed Crimea and invaded Donbas in support of the so-called “People’s Republics of Luhansk and Donetsk”, which my government believes to be little more than a mixture of terrorist and criminal organisations.

Russia’s appetite for hegemony does not stop with Ukraine. It greedily eyes other former states and satellites of the Soviet Union, and more broadly seeks to destabilise and divide the rest of Europe and the wider transatlantic alliance. It is instructive that the Kremlin is commissioning new statues of Stalin, one of the 20th century’s worst mass murderers..................
