Ukraine's European Integration: The Russian Factor

Analytical Paper

Outcomes of the study “Ukraine’s European Integration: The Russian Factor” – produced by the Razumkov Centre with the support of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Ukraine, published in issue № 1-2 (2020) of the journal “National Security and Defence”

The project encompasses an analytical study, contributions by various expert authors, nationwide studies and roundtables of foreign and domestic specialists.

It outlines the steps as well as trends in Ukraine’s European integration while evaluating internal and external influence factors. Furthermore, the dynamics of economics and energy in the triangle Ukraine-EU-Russia are analysed. In this context, Russia’s influence – in particular aims, tactics as well as the means and technologies the Kremlin employs to block Ukraine’s EU aspirations – is a core research object of the study.
