This chapter assesses Eurasian integration against these dimensions of EU’s external policy. The analysis starts with a discussion of the status quo of EU’s relations with the Eurasian region and the tensions already observed before exploring the institutional nature and practice of the Eurasian Economic Union. On balance, it arrives at a sceptical conclusion about the prospects for a change in EU’s current approach beyond the likelihood of ceasefire in Ukraine.
