Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts The Russia-Ukraine War and Implications on Azerbaijan

The Russia-Ukraine War and Implications on Azerbaijan

July 15, 2022 | 10:00 am to 11:00 am | Eurasia Program

About the Event

The second Russo Ukrainian war has had consequences – both, global and regional. Some of those consequences are most intensely felt by Russia’s immediate neighbors, many of whom are reevaluating their foreign policy priorities as well as their security threats and challenges. The ripple effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have highlighted the importance of Azerbaijan as an ally to the European Union. How does oil-rich Azerbaijan fit into the EU’s energy independence calculus? How can we expect Azerbaijan’s regional role to shift amidst the disruption of traditional connectivity routes? How will Azerbaijan balance its relationship with Russia and Armenia parallel to the deepening bonds with the EU?
