Due to the Ukrainian crisis, relations between the EU and Russia hit rock bottom, the lowest point from the end of the Cold War. Indeed, it is crystal clear that today’s dispute is nothing but the latest chapter of a long story of misunderstandings and conflicting strategies on the post–Soviet states of Eastern Europe and South Caucasus. The further deepening of this cleavage would inflict serious damage on all interested parties: the EU, Russia and several post-Soviet states. Why is Ukraine so important both for EU and Russia? What are the real origins of the current crisis that brought to an open confrontation between Russia and the EU? What is the rationale behind Russia’s firm opposition to a further NATO enlargement? What are the viable options to escape the fate of a new "Cold War"?
Examining Russia–EU relations in terms of the forms and types of power tools they use, this book argues that the deteriorating relations between Russia and the EU lie in the deep differences in their preferences for the international status quo. These different approaches, combined with economic interdependence and geographic proximity, means both parties experience significant difficulties in shaping strategy and formulating agendas with regards to each other.

The Aspen Strategy Group’s Policy Books is an annual series of pieces written by contemporary thought leaders on the most pressing U.S. foreign policy and national security issues. This edition is a collection of papers commissioned for the 2014 Aspen Strategy Group Summer Workshop, in Aspen, Colorado. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Aspen Strategy Group (founded in 1984), the summer workshop convened a nonpartisan group of preeminent U.S.-Russia policy experts, academics, journalists, and business leaders. The group’s policy discussions were guided by the papers in this volume, whose scope encompasses the history of the U.S.-Russia relationship, current developments in the Sino-Russian relationship, NATO and European responses to Russian aggression in Eastern Europe, energy considerations, areas of potential U.S.-Russia cooperation, and the broader question of U.S. national security and interests in the European region.
The Limits of Partnership offers a riveting narrative on U.S.-Russian relations since the Soviet collapse and on the challenges ahead. It reflects the unique perspective of an insider who is also recognized as a leading expert on this troubled relationship. American presidents have repeatedly attempted to forge a strong and productive partnership only to be held hostage to the deep mistrust born of the Cold War. For the United States, Russia remains a priority because of its nuclear weapons arsenal, its strategic location bordering Europe and Asia, and its ability to support--or thwart--American interests. Why has it been so difficult to move the relationship forward? What are the prospects for doing so in the future? Is the effort doomed to fail again and again?
In this book Andrei V. Belyi analyses how transnational gas markets have evolved and impacted on EU-Russia energy relations. He details how the shale gas revolution has exposed gas markets to new practices and norms, and made them more market-oriented. At the same time, he examines how Euro-Russian energy ties have become locked in path dependence patterns, and demonstrates how the political conflict in Ukraine has turned energy interdependence into a political instrument. This politicisation, in turn, has stimulated a willingness to pay for alternative projects, which stand outside of recent trends in transnational gas markets. This paradoxical situation, Belyi concludes, reflects deep rooted contradictions between political and economic factors in international political economy.
