When it comes to Ukraine, we are not facing regular negotiations with an independent state. No, we are actually in the middle of a war. Half of the population in Ukraine wants to go west, while the other half still sees Russia as a ”big brother”.

On top of all that, Russia will not let Ukraine get away so easily, playing its ”gas pipes” card if necessary. Just imagine how important the EU-Ukraine deal is, if Russia is ready to give away billions of dollars just to stop it from happening.

So, does EU have any power to change the course of events under this circumstances? If yes, what should be its next move?
