The Geopolitical Significance of the Ukraine War

A study about the geopolitical significance of the Ukraine War by our Senior Fellow Csaba Barnabás Horváth

This paper attempts to take an overview of the geopolitical significance of the Ukraine War from a realist point of view. How its outcome impacts issues from the power balance between Russia and the Western Bloc, through the prospects of a regional bloc in Central and Eastern Europe, the energy security of Europe, to issues like nuclear proliferation throughout the world, and the risk of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. As we will see, in our world where everything impacts everything else, the significance of the outcome of the war may be more far-reaching than assumed.
