Almost for the first time ever the European Union has agreed on a common Russia strategy: sanctions. This presentation discusses the current troubled relationship between Russia and Europe. It uncovers the essentials of this relationship. What makes the relationship between Russia and Europe so special? What are the real antagonisms? And how to proceed from the current situation? Will these two deeply different 'powers' ever agree on a common strategy towards stability and security in Europe?
