The EFF has, in cooperation with the Institute of Political Education, provided trainings in Ukraine for fifteen years. The themes of these trainings were very diverse and focused for example on local councils, political management, cross border cooperation, fair elections and the EU.
In 2014 the trainings in Ukraine were put on a hold. The EFF started over in 2015, with the Konrad Ardenauer Stiftung (KAS) as their new partner for Ukraine. Together they provide trainings for EPP like minded political parties such as UDAR and Democratic Alliance. In 2015, five trainings were held in both Kiev and Odessa. The trainings focused on local politics.

The EFF started with the KAS activities for Democratic Alliance in the run up for the local elections in autumn 2015. Get a glimpse of one of these activities here.
