Following the illegal annexation of Crimea and the subsequent destabilisation of Eastern Ukraine, the strategic landscape in the Black Sea and the adjacent area is significantly altered. According to Ioan Paşcu MEP „Russia's challenge to the international legal order and to the European post-Cold War security system, initiated in the wider Black Sea region, generated and will further require both tactical and strategic responses from the European Union, NATO, the US and from all Black Sea riparian States. A European Parliament report dealing with the strategic, political and military implications of the illegal annexation of Crimea and of the military conflict in Eastern Ukraine for the security situation in the Black Sea Basin is thus timely.“
Ioan Paşcu MEP and Vice-President of the European Parliament, will present his draft report on “The strategic military situation in the Black Sea Basin following the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia” which intends to bring the European Parliament's perspective on the challenges to the individual and/or the collective security and defence policies of the countries in the region and the roles assumed by the European Union, NATO and the US in contributing to the stability in the Black Sea Basin.
This event will examine the current strategic situation in the Black Sea Basin. Furthermore it is intended to discuss the future challenges for the EU and last but not least will reflect on implications for the countries bordering on the Black Sea and the European Union as a whole.
