The geostrategic potential of the Black Sea region has often been overlooked. Natalia Stercul analyses why this is changing in the face of the war, what economic perspectives are open to the EU and what part the Republic of Moldova plays in this.

While the Western countries have introduced unprecedented sanctions against Russia’s energy sector, its nuclear industry, represented by the state-owned nuclear energy monopolist Rosatom, remains an exception in the sanction policy of the EU and G7. Despite its role in seizing the occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and virtually blackmailing Europe, Rosatom seems to be protected from the sanctions, as many countries are still dependent on the Russian nuclear industry.
Policy Paper Oleksii Romanov 03. May 2023
This policy brief gives an overview of the current state of the Ukrainian energy system and the challenges that emerged because of the war, but also the chances for the sustainable reconstruction of the energy sector. In order to modernise the economy on a sustainable basis Ukraine needs significant private investments. At the same time, the large-scale reconstruction of the energy sector offers opportunities for German and EU companies to participate in the “green” development of the Ukrainian economy.

The war in Ukraine is putting the future of Russia more and more in our hands. A decisive victory of Ukraine makes an end to the Putin regime more likely. The West needs to prepare for this moment because it may offer a short opportunity to encourage the country to embark on a more democratic and law-abinding path, writes Maria Domanska.

Russia’s shocking invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 has changed the geopolitical realities in Europe, spelling the end to Russia’s position as Europe’s most important energy supplier. As a result, today Russia has the dubious distinction of being the most sanctioned nation in the world’s history.

Russia’s war against Ukraine has upended not just relations with the West but is testing the international system as a whole. The urgent need for new thinking has prompted the Center of Liberal Modernity to set up its Expert Network Russia, which met in Vilnius under the headline “Rethinking Russia” for the first time on 31 October.

Comment Ralf Fücks 19. October 2022
It is time to think about a Russia after Putin. If defeated in Ukraine, conditions in the country will also change. Whether for the better or the worse is an open question. Without a departure from the imperial delusion, Russia will remain in the eternal vicious circle of war politics and authoritarian rule.
Liberal democracy is under pressure worldwide. At our conference “Rethinking Liberalism, Renewing Democracy” on 24 November in Berlin and online, we discussed with international guests from academia, politics, think tanks and business how liberalism and liberal democracy must evolve in order to sustain.

US-Ukraine relations under Joe Biden: security and domestic reforms as mutually reinforcing pillars
Climate change and its consequences are viewed differently in Russia than is the case in the West. The issue is understood as “part of a political game”. This difference in outlook has ramifications for both political and economic cooperation. The interview study “Russian Experts’ Opinions on Global Climate Change”, conducted by Russia’s Levada-Center and commissioned by the Center for Liberal Modernity, affords in-depth insight into the Russian elites’ perspective on climate change and its societal and economic consequences.
