dc.description.abstractThe Ukraine Crisis marks a substantial change in German and European Union approaches toward Russia and poses questions European security architecture after the end of the Cold War. The conflict also has a significant transatlantic dimension, characterized by a resurgent Russia and challenged durability in the EuroÐAtlantic security order. The thesis explores the transatlantic community's strength in the present European security crisis, the common challenges of an enlarged transatlantic security zone, and the concerned regions' ability and mutual willingness to maintain and renew relations to keep up with security challenges. Although the research reveals that the transatlantic security community's lead nations, Germany and the United States, cooperated to counter Russian aggression and avert further crisis escalation, they could not prevent Russia's de facto annexation of Crimea and the enduring destabilization of Ukraine. The thesis concludes that neither U.S. exceptionalism nor European strategic independence could lead to more stable conditions for peace in the transatlantic area. The Ukraine Crisis' lessons present essential considerations for adapting strategy and partnership across the EuroÐAtlantic community.en_US
