The Eastern Partnership started as a rather innocuous Swedish-Polish initiative. Launched in 2009, it was seen mostly as just another scheme for Brussels to channel funds and coordinate the European Union’s activities in Europe’s east.

If previously the EU could claim that the EaP was just a technical process, it is difficult to sell this argument now.
