Russian Crisis and Ukraine

Mykhailo Samus took part in the brainstorming session on regional security and international relations which was organized by the New Strategy Center” (Romania) and The New Geopolitics Research Network (Ukraine) in partnership with the Center for Global Studies “Strategy XXI” (Ukraine). Discussions were focused on assessing the security situation in the Black Sea region, the crisis on the Ukrainian-Russian border and negotiations between the United States, NATO and Russia. Russia’s military build-up poses a real threat to Ukraine, as well as to European security in general. The policy of spheres of influence that Moscow intends to revive cannot be accepted, as it restricts the right of sovereign states to choose their own alliances and international organizations in which they wish to participate.
