-

Plenary / Global power
in englischer Sprache

Die Annexion der Krim-Halbinsel, der Konflikt in der Ostukraine, der Krieg in Syrien, der Giftanschlag von Salisbury: All das wirkt sich auf die einst ’strategische Partnerschaft‘ aus. Dennoch bleibt Russland ein wichtiger Akteur, mit dem sich die EU in vielen Bereichen auseinandersetzen muss. Was sind die Aussichten für diese herausfordernde Beziehung?
