No good news from Moscow

EU Observer publishes an opinion editorial by Guy Verhofstadt MEP, former Prime Minister of Belgium, discussing the need for the EU to develop a new narrative on how to engage pragmatically but critically with Russia. It is argued that the EU’s policy towards Russia should focus on enabling pragmatic cooperation and trade, while strengthening democratic reforms and promoting the rule of law. As such, the article suggests that the next European Parliament should ask the next High Representative to draw up and lead a more robust EU policy towards Russia, stressing the importance of pursuing a win-win partnership.
