    Putin’s Crooked Mirror
    Jarosław Kuisz, Karolina Wigura July 28, 2014

    Almost every key concept in European political discourse—fascism, nationalism, multiculturalism—has its equivalent in Russian propaganda. But the meanings are very different.

    A Battle For Russia
    Dmitri Trenin July 28, 2014

    The Kremlin now sees the U.S. goal as the toppling of the Putin regime. That said, expecting Putin to back off betrays a lack of understanding of the gravity of the situation. It is no longer just a struggle for Ukraine, but a battle for Russia.

    Judy Dempsey July 24, 2014

    Every week, a selection of leading experts answer a new question from Judy Dempsey on the foreign and security policy challenges shaping Europe’s role in the world.

    Europeans Shun Even Their Soft-Power Tools
    Judy Dempsey July 23, 2014

    Sanctions can be one of the EU’s most effective instruments of soft power. Yet EU governments are unwilling to make full use of this resource and put values before interests.

    How the EU Can Raise Its Game in Foreign Policy
    Bruno Maçães July 22, 2014

    The EU needs to strengthen its foreign policy by preserving, not eradicating, national differences, writes Portugal’s state secretary for Europe.

     
  • Eurasia Outlook
    Midsummer Blues
    Dmitri Trenin July 21, 2014

    MH17 may well be a turning point in the Ukraine conflict, but President Putin remains unlikely to back down despite economic pressure from the West. Russians may look back to the summer of 2014 years from now as a game changer.

     
  • Eurasia Outlook
    Malaysia and Ukraine
    Dmitri Trenin July 18, 2014

    The downing of the Malaysia Airlines MH17 plane over Eastern Ukraine catapults the crisis there onto the global plane. The tragic and sudden loss of so many innocent lives should put a final point to the armed conflict—or it may put the international conflict over Ukraine on a much higher and more dangerous level.

    EU and Ukraine: Bumpy Road Ahead
    Balázs Jarábik July 16, 2014

    Ukraine is certainly a different country compared to seven months ago. The challenges of implementing the EU Association Agreement that it signed on June 27 are still tremendous, though. Reform, management of expectations, and reality is what is needed now.

    Three Treacherous Tales of Power in Europe
    Jan Techau July 15, 2014

    From the selection of the EU’s new leadership team to Germany’s role in Europe, EU foreign policy offers a number of revealing cases of misperceived power.

    Spies and Europe’s Dependence on America
    Judy Dempsey July 10, 2014

    Germany’s latest spying scandals should spur the EU to revitalize its declining science and technology sectors. The chances are that this opportunity won’t be seized.

    Will MH17 Air Crash Damage Russia’s Putin?
    Dmitri Trenin July 22, 2014 BBC Русский

    If the investigators’ verdict on the Malaysia Airlines plane crash does eventually fall against Russia, Vladimir Putin will survive politically, but will have to work hard to restore faith in him, and his good fortune.

    The Russian View of What Happened to Flight MH17
    Dmitri Trenin July 21, 2014 WBUR’s Here and Now

    With the international investigation of the Malaysian plane crash yet to begin in earnest, the West will base its understanding on evidence supplied mainly by the United States and Russia will see Western actions as punishment not for shooting down the plane, but rather for Moscow’s position on Ukraine.

    Ukraine and the Aftermath of the Downing of Flight MH17
    Dmitri Trenin July 19, 2014 Guardian

    An independent inquiry into the Malaysia Airlines plane crash over eastern Ukraine and an immediate ceasefire by all sides could be the first step in a process to reverse the trend toward mutual destruction within Ukraine and beyond.
