Ring of Friends or Ring of Fire?
Eastern Europe between the European and Eurasian Union
Russia and the European Union offer two completely different models of integration to the countries in their common neighbourhood. The EU offers help with modernization and economic reforms, while Russia promises loans and military help if countries join the Eurasian Economic Union. In this regard, the war in the Ukraine shows the incompatibility of the EU’s integrative approach with Russia’s spheres of influence thinking.
