Who Is Betraying Eastern Europe?

The recent agreement between Russia and the European Union over the terms of the «winter package» of gas shipments to Ukraine provides a certain window of opportunity to the countries of Central and Southeastern Europe. In this new environment they will be able to draft a wider range of projects for transporting Russian gas, to serve both their own needs as well as for further transit into the EU, and also coordinate those projects with each other, as well as with Moscow and Brussels...

EU Flags Trampled On

Bratislava witnessed unprecedented emotional protests hitting the streets on June 20. The Slovakian capital has enjoyed the fame of a quite city, actually one of the quietest in the European Union. Now the people want the EU to stop imposing its security concepts that run contrary to national interests. EU flags were trampled on against the background of clashes with police...

Serbia risks spending too long playing gas games

The regional competition between Central and Eastern European states to receive and transport Russian gas is entering a new phase. The outcome of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico’s visit to Slovakia has shown that his country, along with Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary, is determined to implement a major regional project that will link up with the infrastructure of the Turkish-Russian Turkish Stream project... The preliminary route of Turkish Stream agreed by Russia and Turkey involves the construction of a gas pipeline with a capacity of 63 billion cubic metres per year...

After Ukraine: Are the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary Veering Off The NATO/EU Reservation?

Despite the firmness shown by the EU’sbiggest players when it comes to sanctioning Putin’s Russia, lower down the pecking order some member states are not happy. Unlike the most craven and obedient puppets — the Baltic States and Poland — it took some arm twisting to get the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary to agree to punish Moscow for annexing Crimea. Each country is dependent for much of its energy on Russia with which there are also valued economic ties. Why rock the boat? Despite hyperbole claiming that Vladimir Putin was intent on taking them over and rebuilding the iron curtain, in reality, Russia has been an unproblematic neighbour for a quarter of a century.

New Сracks in the anti-Russian Front

The anti-Russian colours that the policies of the European Commission and the US administration are painted in regarding the introduction of economic sanctions against Russia are slowly losing their lustre and beginning to peel off. Within the European Union there are pockets of internal resistance to the anti-Russian policy that are particularly noticeable against the feverish attempts by Brussels to force Serbia and other countries, where the mirage of joining the EU still seems to be a bit like reaching the Promised Land, to join in with the sanctions...

Plight of Romanians and Hungarians in Ukraine

The independent Ukraine boasts a rather short history. The relations with minorities have never been a feather in the hat of Kiev authorities. The real state of things was largely muted to make it a smouldering problem. The «national revolution» has exacerbated the situation to the boiling point, especially talking about Hungarians and Romanians...

The Polish-American Landmine under the Visegrad Group

Conflicts within the European Union are continuing to intensify, and one of the most successful regional projects in Europe – the Visegrad Group – is at risk... Rather than associating themselves with the policy of Brussels and Warsaw regarding Ukraine, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava are discussing the economy, calculating their losses as a result of anti-Russian sanctions, and even criticising the European Union. Warsaw’s dissatisfaction with the course of events is growing. A lengthy article published in the leading Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza on 19 September puts the question bluntly: why is the Visegrad Group not united in its condemnation of Russia, and why is it not hurrying to rally its members around Poland as the main defender of Ukraine? Hungarians, Czechs and Slovaks are accused of collective amnesia, what the newspaper calls exaggerated trade and economic links with Russia...

Visegrad group to Become a Permanently Deployed EU-NATO Rapid Response Force Reinforced by Ukraine

...On 21 March 2014, European Union Heads of State and Government and Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk signed the political provisions of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The agreement commits both parties to promote a gradual convergence toward the EU's Common Security and Defense Policy and European Defence Agency policies. The V4 is an important step linking Ukraine – EU military structure, which depends on and closely aligns its activities with NATO. The first step on the way is joining the Visegrad Battle group military unit. Visegrad Group defence ministers made the decision at a meeting on June 1 before the formal meeting of NATO defence ministers in Brussels... Slovakia, as the V4 President, will promote close cooperation of military intelligence services and that cooperation will be extended by Romania and the Baltic countries (Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia)...

Maastricht Treaty - Twenty Years in Force

The Maastricht Treaty (formally, the Treaty on European Union or TEU) came into force on November 1, 1993 to create the European Union, the common political system of United Europe and the single European currency – the euro... Is it not something we face today looking at the financial relationship between the North and the South? Or interethnic and interstate contradictions within the triangle Hungary – Romania – Slovakia?.. It brings it near to the prospect of a real confrontation flaring up within the «United Europe»...

Visegrad Group gets ready for NATO summit

According to NATO’s plans, which are to be discussed at the summit in Chicago in May, the countries of the former USSR, which surround Russia, must play the role of an “anaconda ring” pressing Russia...The essence of the North-Atlantic alliance as a military and political bloc has not changed since its establishment in 1949. NATO has not changed its goals regarding historical Russia which were set back in the beginning of the Cold War. These are only means of achieving these goals which are changing.

Why Washington Fears Britain Quitting EU

The countdown begins this week for the momentous question facing Britain: whether to exit the European Union – the so-called Brexit. While the issue seems to be primarily one for British national interests, lurking in the background is a crucial geopolitical concern for the United States. The outcome of the British referendum on Europe could severely undermine Washington’s global hegemonic ambitions and in particular its adversarial agenda towards Russia...
