Why it is not just Putin’s war: the collective responsibility of Russians

While Ukraine continues to occupy a regular spot in news reporting, western outlets and politicians still overlook the main reason for the war.

Financing Ukraine’s reconstruction: sources and principles

Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine has become Europe’s biggest challenge of the last 70 years. Undeniably, it has pushed the EU towards change. For more than a year, the EU has been introducing unprecedented external and domestic policies: numerous sanctions packages, frozen and confiscated Russian state and private assets, measures towards strategic energy independence, joint ammunition procurement, and a reinforced fight against Kremlin-backed disinformation.
