“Open conflict with Russia” – Why Putin benefits from Uzbekistan unrest

The Russian attack on Ukraine worries other post-Soviet states. They fear the Kremlin and Putin’s imperial ambitions.

The EUCON project coordinator Hannes Meissner analyses the situation in an Podcast with Kevin Schulte from the German news channel NTV. https://www.n-tv.de/politik/Podcast-Wieder-was-gelernt-Wie-Proteste-in-Usbekistan-Putin-in-die-Haende-spielen-article23466147.html

The “The EU and the EEU: Between Conflict and Competition, Convergence and Cooperation” (EUCON) project is a Jean Monnet Network project co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme.
