Meeting between Putin and Trump — Another Reason for Split within the EU?

... even in the form of a new president should not present any serious difficulties, so all the European Union has to do is wait a few years for the situation to correct itself. Second . The President of the United States did not utter a single word about Ukraine during the meeting (not during the bit we saw, at least). This was another serious blow for the European Union, and for Berlin in particular. This silence on an issue that the European Union sees as the key reason for the conflict between Russia ...


NATO Is Too Strong to Be Destabilized by One Particular U.S. President

... One of those that stands up front and center at the moment is the status of the Crimea, but there are other areas around the world where actually we could agree and start some useful dialogue. One of them is what’s going on in and around the East of Ukraine at the moment. But as we just throw rocks at each other about the things we can’t agree about, we’re unlikely to make progress in those areas where we might.

Washington and Moscow each control resources and levers of influence vital for managing and ultimately resolving these conflicts....


The hubris of the American empire in the geopolitical realist and eschatological civilizational Russian vision: The Ukrainian conflict in continuation of the Great Game (2015)

AbstractSince the breakup of Yugoslavia and the USSR, the "colour revolutions" and the "Arab Spring" might have contributed to trivialize the events of February 2014 in Kiev, Ukraine.

... the Soviet Union and the eastern enlargement of the EU. With US support, Germany was key to the stabilization of Europe in the 1990s; today it needs to build on this visionary and pragmatic tradition. But at least since the start of the conflict in Ukraine in 2014, it has become clear that Germany’s partnership for modernization [ 1 ] with Russia has failed, and the special relationship between Moscow and Berlin is now in doubt. Yet it is Berlin — not Brussels, Warsaw or Paris — that will ...
