Kyrgyzstan faces a new era in regional politics

The term “brother nation” has traditionally been very popular within the foreign policies of the countries of the former USSR. The Kyrgyz Republic and other countries of Central Asia have also often used this phrase given their common Turkic and Soviet history, Russia included. After February 2022, however, the countries’ relationships with Russia started to take a different form, far from “the spirit of allied relations”.

What changed in Ukraine in 2022?

It is clear that Ukraine has undergone momentous change ever since Putin embarked on his full-scale invasion of the country last year. The realities of war appear to be encouraging the formation of a new society that is very much different from the one before February 24th 2022.

The Finnish effect of the war in Ukraine

The similarities between Ukraine’s war with Russia today and that experienced by Finland some eighty years ago are hard to ignore. While Moscow continues its attempts to stop Kyiv joining NATO, its aggression has only encouraged Helsinki to join the Alliance.

The fetish of Russia’s stability: an intelligent weapon against the West

Russia's invasion of Ukraine has exposed the nexus between repressive domestic rule and aggressive foreign policy. As long as Russia remains a dictatorship, it will pose an existential threat to the security order in Europe. It is, therefore, in the West's interest to see a permanent dismantling of the current model of government in Russia. Putin's departure from office will create a short-term window of opportunity for political change. Contrary to widespread fears, the end of this autocratic pseudo-stability may pave the way for sustainable peace in Europe.

45,000 body bags

Before the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the military purchased 45,000 body bags. Given Moscow’s belief in a short victorious war, the question must be asked: for whom were these body bags originally intended?

It is finally time to counter Russian interference

One year after the onset of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the West’s unity and support for Kyiv still holds strong. However, Moscow’s other, often more covert, operations and interference have still been allowed to run rampant across the globe, with little done to counteract their damaging impact.

Biden’s trip to Ukraine and Poland reaffirms special approach toward Eastern Europe

On the eve of the first anniversary of Russia’s full-fledged war against Ukraine, US President Biden made a surprise visit to Kyiv before embarking on a scheduled trip to Poland. Both visits are full of messages and symbols, but broader policy implications may not be so visible at first glance. This article will look at US foreign policy priorities during the time remaining before the US presidential elections in 2024.

Russia’s fatal “Zugzwang”

The German word "Zugzwang" comes from the words "Zug", which means “move”, and "Zwang", which means “compulsion”. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine today appears to be wholly influenced by such an irrational "compulsion to move". Much like the chess term, Moscow is now pursuing a move that will only worsen its position and harm itself.
