Ukraine’s complex transition
Edited By Klaus Bachmann and Igor Lyubashenko
The role of NATO and the EU in the Ukrainian Crisis
The disintegration of the Soviet Union, together with the Ukrainian independence of 1991 led to the emergence of a new, independent state, on the debris of the former USSR. Ukraine’s almost quarter of a century of statehood is characterised by having a strong internal dynamic, and numerous turning points that shaped the political evolution of this country.1
Two of the most important partners that actively co-operate with Ukraine are the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). The interaction with these two organisations is the subject of this chapter. For the sake of consistency, the chapter will first focus on Ukraine’s relations with NATO. The second part will touch upon the relations with the EU.
