Over the last few months, multiple crises have erupted in the former Soviet space as well as
renewed tensions between the EU and Russia following Aleksey Navalny’s poisoning. In light of
these events, the EU needs to address three key questions:
- What does Russia’s response to these crises reveal of
its policies in the Eastern neighborhood?
- How might these crises affect EU
Russ ia relations in the near future?
- Does this new situation call for an upgrade in the EU strategy of selective engagement?
