Everyone Loses : The Ukraine Crisis and the Ruinous Contest for Post-Soviet Eurasia, Paperback / softback Book

Everyone Loses : The Ukraine Crisis and the Ruinous Contest for Post-Soviet Eurasia Paperback / softback

Part of the Adelphi series series

Description

Disorder erupted in Ukraine in 2014, involving the overthrow of a sitting government, the Russian annexation of the Crimean peninsula, and a violent insurrection, supported by Moscow, in the east of the country. This Adelphi book argues that the crisis has yielded a ruinous outcome, in which all the parties are worse off and international security has deteriorated.

This negative-sum scenario resulted from years of zero-sum behaviour on the part of Russia and the West in post-Soviet Eurasia, which the authors rigorously analyse.

The rivalry was manageable in the early period after the Cold War, only to become entrenched and bitter a decade later.

The upshot has been systematic losses for Russia, the West and the countries caught in between. All the governments involved must recognise that long-standing policies aimed at achieving one-sided advantage have reached a dead end, Charap and Colton argue, and commit to finding mutually acceptable alternatives through patient negotiation.
