1. Tensions in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus: what is Vladimir Putin up to? (Olivier Courteaux Historian, via LIVE ZOOM) Thirty years have passed since the end of the Cold War and tensions between Russia and the West have never been so high. Vladimir Putin, who once called the collapse of the Soviet Union “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century”, has adopted what is widely perceived in the West: forging military alliances and economic partnerships with Asia, while attempting to destabilize Ukraine and the Caucasus. Between 2014 and 2019, thousands have lost their lives in Ukraine. Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, triggering widespread condemnation in the West. Vladimir Putin, who once called the collapse of the Soviet Union “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century”, has adopted a much different approach: forging military alliances and economic partnerships with Asia, while attempting to destabilize Ukraine and the Caucasus. A look at the current tensions over Ukraine, Russia’s increasingly tight relationship with Belarus and the nature of its involvement in the Nagorno-Karabagh “frozen” conflict in the Caucasus. What is Vladimir Putin up to? And what does he really want to achieve?
