Do Putin's Policies Threaten European Stability?
Past Events / Videos
Public debate with four experts of the question | 13th March 2015
The conflict in the Ukraine has claimed more than 6,000 lives, and constitutes the worst Russia-Western crisis since the end of the Cold War.
President Putin has placed the blame for the conflict on the US and the EU for trying to reshape the world in their own interests, while failing to recognize Russia’s interests in its near-abroad. Putin’s Western critics have blamed Russia for violating the national integrity of a sovereign state whose borders it had agreed to respect, and for trying to dismantle the post-Cold War settlement.
Do the policies followed by President Putin pose a threat to wider European security, as many fear? Or do they simply reflect Russia’s legitimate concerns, and do not, therefore, reflect wider political and strategic ambitions that would endanger European stability? These matters were the subject of a debate organized by the Danube Institute on 9th March 2015. Leading experts debated the motion
"Do Russia’s Ukraine policies threaten European stability?"
Supporting this motion were
Charles Crawford, a former UK Ambassador to Warsaw, and
Opposing the motion were
Vlad Sobell, a Prague-based Russian and Eastern Europe analyst, and
Chair: János Martonyi, former Minister of Foreign Affairs
