Russia’s 2022 War against Ukraine and the Foreign Policy Reaction of the EU: Context, Diplomacy, and Law
March 30, 2023
The most interesting aspect of the book is that it was published a short time after the start of the war in February 2022. This is a normal case considering that the last two chapters of the book, almost half of it, consist of two articles previously published by the author. It is also noteworthy that the author made use of English, French, Italian, and Russian sources for his book. On the other hand, although the European Council granted Ukraine the status of a candidate for accession to the EU in June, the lack of a wide-ranging analysis on Ukraine’s EU membership process is the most obvious shortcoming of the book. Despite this shortcoming, the book provides a good contribution to the literature on the EU’s reactions to the war. In any case, I recommend this short book as a good starting piece primarily for analysts, post-graduate students, and journalists who would like to understand the past of EU-Ukraine relations and the EU’s reactions to the war.
