Russia, Ukraine and European security

In this dedicated section, we showcase CEPS publications that provide in-depth analysis on arguably the worst security crisis in Europe since the end of the Second World War. With expertise accumulated over many years, our dedicated researchers shed light on the origins of the crisis, its evolution since the 2014 Maidan revolution, how it snowballed so rapidly from the end of 2021 onwards and, crucially, what this means for the future of Europe and European security.
