Ukraine's security option in the new Europe
Golopatyuk, Leonid S.
MetadataShow full item record
Since the disintegration of the Soviet empire, the independence of Ukraine has become one of the most significant geopolitical factors for the security and stability of Europe. To a great extent, the future European security order depends on Ukraine's security option in the new Europe. While cognizant of other security options, for instance, to integrate in the West or to join the pro-Russian security treaty of the Commonwealth of Independent States, Ukraine has defined itself as neutral. In its security policy, Ukraine intends to participate in Europe's major institutions, to develop close relations with its strategic partners and neighbors, and to maintain constructive relations with Russia. The process of Ukraine's self definition in a new European security architecture promises to continue to present great challenges.
