Event Description

The Russian aggression against Ukraine, which has started in 2014 (including the takeover of Crimea) and dramatically intensified since February 24, 2022, has altered regional security in major ways. The correlation of forces has shifted, anxiety has grown and trust evaporated. The regional trade routes have been blocked. It has become clear that all hopes for a viable regional security infrastructure have failed. Both U.S. and NATO have discovered a need for a forward looking regional security strategy while being faced with more assertive and aggressive Russia. Turkey has embarked on its balancing act. Ukraine is in search of some working mechanisms to safeguard its security and sovereignty.
