Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its invasion of eastern Ukraine unified NATO and prompted allies to beef up defenses. But the process of strengthening the alliance’s Eastern flank is far from over. To complete it, the alliance needs to develop a comprehensive, long-term strategy toward Russia based on unity, deterrence, and resilience.
Carnegie Europe’s Judy Dempsey discussed the latest developments on NATO’s Eastern flank and the alliance’s future relationship with Russia at an event hosted by the German Council on Foreign Relations in Berlin. Dempesy was joined by CISP research associate Tobias Bunde, DGAP’s Christian Mölling, and Polish analyst Eugeniusz Smolar.
The event was held in English. A light lunch was served as of 12:30 p.m.
This event was supported by NATO’s Public Diplomacy Division.
