What determines political existence? - discussion in Donetsk

Participants of the American Club at Center for Political Studies in Donetsk discussed the differences and similarities between political cultures in Europe, the United States and Ukraine. 

The meeting was attended by club's regulars plus European Voluntary Service volunteers from Latvia and Poland, as well as CPS interns. One of the first issues on the agenda was what was first - a political culture, or the human predicament in a specific country.
