Greece and Russia: Back to the Truman Doctrine?

... economic reasons, many are beholden to their host country's policies, but particularly in the case of policy vis-à-vis Russia. They are spearheaded by the American Hellenic Institute, and lobby constantly to try and persuade the US to be firmer with Turkey on the Cyprus question. Yet they are by and large also anti-communist, and therefore anti-Russian, as if the Cold War is uppermost in their minds, with their apparent inability to differentiate between Communism and modern Russia. The Greek government ...

Ian Bond: EU Is Always Open to Dialogue with Russia, but It All Depends on the Terms

... can compete with Chinese mega-corporations. Whereas I think that in the UK they have always said that we need to have open markets and not favor the creation of European champions, let the market decide, who is the champion and who isn’t. Recently, Turkey launched military operations in northern Syria. In your opinion, how does the EU see Turkey’s actions in Syria? I think this will raise a lot of questions for the EU.

Possible International “Package Solution” Formats on the Balkans Issue

... Presence in Southeast Europe and Russia’s New Strategy The United States is pushing forward only those decisions that assure their influence on the pan-European processes as well as strengthen their positions in the global confrontation.

These actors are primarily China, but also Turkey and several Middle Eastern states. The presence of many actors with diverging interests in the fragmented post-conflict Balkan space demonstrates that the situation in the region would be more properly assessed not as part of the "Russia–West" ...

Turkey vs. the EU: Still arguing? Russians Are Coming…

... signed in 2016. There is a significant problem in the disputes concerning several sectors covered by the Customs Union, such as customer services, agriculture, etc. However, it should in all fairness be noted that there is a clear asymmetry in EU–Turkey relations: Ankara complies with the European Union’s common trade policy, but it may not participate in decision-making processes. For instance, the United Kingdom initiated Brexit and is in talks with Brussels on the future economic development.
