The Introduction briefly presents recent developments at the origin of the geopolitical changes analyzed in the book. It provides a succinct description of each chapter and summarizes the conclusions. In particular, it emphasizes the perception of the evolution of the East European regional security complex as a struggle between the European Union’s Kantian, win-win geopolitical vision and Russia’s neoclassical geopolitics also promoted by President Trump. It is highly probable that, in the medium term and long term, the latter approach will have the upper hand.
