... crisis between Ukraine and Russia. This was significant for Ukraine’s identity and for Russia’s decreasing influence because through these talks, Ukraine was able to skirt the Russian Orthodox Church as a cultural and religious center in Eastern Europe. With continuing disputes between Ukrainians and the UOC(MP), particularly in government, the Ukrainian government was desperate for a ruling to split the UOC(MP) from the Russian Orthodox Church. These meetings led eventually to the decision by ...

Another puzzling aspect of the Agreement that was supposed to be broad and overarching is its lack of influence on the composition and structure of the EEAS (European External Action Service).
