Humanitarian Deterioration and Risks of Disrupting a Volatile Status Quo
The Russian attack on Ukraine will have serious consequences for Euro-Atlantic security beyond the military conflict. In a first multi-perspective analysis of the situation, the SWP takes a look at Russian domestic politics, the situation in Ukraine, Western sanctions, the EU’s and NATO’s response, China’s role and international law.
Concerns are growing in Europe about a Russian military intervention in Ukraine. In addition to the deployment of some 100,000 troops near the Ukrainian border, a maneuver in Belarus is planned for February. What is Moscow up to? Margarete Klein believes three scenarios are possible.
