European Future Decided Over Ukraine

Russia undermines the whole post-cold war security architecture

The developments in eastern Europe in February are to shape the future of both Europe and the world.

Either the Russian invasion in Ukraine will be prevented by diplomatic efforts, or it will happen. Even if one of the most optimistic speculations are true — that the whole Kremlin drama was only to excuse the further isolation of the Russian Federation and Belarus in one state and secure Putin’s power for good — that would still mean major security and economic shifts in Europe and the EU. 

NATO Allies are already putting forces on standby and sending additional ships and fighter jets to member countries in eastern Europe. Denmark, Spain, France, the Netherlands and the USA made announcements regarding current or upcoming deployments to support the Baltic states, Bulgaria, and Romania. Poland and the Netherlands recently decided to provide Ukraine with defensive weapons, as earlier did the USA, Britain, Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
