Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will have devastating consequences for the security of all of us in Europe and beyond. The ELN’s Chair Lord Des Browne and Director Sir Adam Thomson call for an immediate cessation of hostilities and the resumption of serious diplomacy.
Over the past weeks, the ELN has convened network members from across wider Europe in a series of private conversations to gain a better understanding of the factors driving the current crisis and the options for its resolution. This is a summary of some considerations offered by Russian participants during these conversations.
“The foundation for European security should be mutual security, not unilateral military advantage standing guard over spheres of influence. And mutual security should be for all.” writes Robert Legvold
