Context: Recently, Russia recognised the Ukraine rebel regions in eastern Ukraine - Donetsk and Luhansk – as independent areas despite calls from the west to put an end to the tensions driven by fears that Russia may attack Ukraine.
Recognising the role of Central Europe in shaping the geopolitics of Europe
Need for diplomatic balancing on Ukraine by India
Factors shaping India’s stand
Tension with China: The prospective Russian invasion of Ukraine comes amidst India’s military tensions with China and Delhi’s continued dependence on Moscow’s military supplies.
Five factors that must shape India’s perspective on the geopolitics of Central Europe
No taker for sphere of influence: Russia’s claim for a broad sphere of influence in the region has no takers in Central Europe.
Need for political accommodation: While Russia has legitimate security interests in Central Europe, they can only be realised through political accommodation.
NATO as better option: few Central Europeans buy into the French vision for “European sovereignty” and “strategic autonomy”.
Resentment against imposition of political value: While they are eager to be part of the Western institutions, Central Europeans resent any attempt by the US and EU to impose political values that run against their traditional cultures.
Sub regional institution: Central Europeans are eager to develop sub-regional institutions that can enhance their identity.
