There have, in Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine been examples of how conflict arise when the EU tries to make cooperation agreements with these states. These conflicts have aroused because Russia isn’t interested in a development where former soviet states moves toward the west. It caused a great outrage in the western world, when the Russian President Putin annexed Crimea in November 2013. The situation has since then evolved into a political dispute between the EU and Russia with Ukraine in between. A dispute where EU continues the economic sanctions against Russia because of Russia’s military conduct in Ukraine. The EU’s management of the conflicts in Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine has great influence on how these states will appear prospectively, and that is why it is the action taken by the EU which is our primary area of investigation. The analysis will be structured as a case study where the study of the conflicts in Moldova and Georgia will provide an understanding of the actions taken by the EU and Russia in these two examples in order to obtain as adequate observations as possible concerning the deep structures in the Ukraine conflict. This assignment concludes that a development in the cooperation between the EU and Moldova, Georgia, and Ukraine has produced conflicts. These conflicts have arisen on the basis of historical and economic parameters. Throughout the analysis we have achieved comprehension of how the passivity of the EU in Moldova has been a reason to why the population of the country is torn in their affiliation between the EU and Russia. The EU’s active role in Georgia has on the other hand led to a constructive cooperation with both EU and Russia. The final analysis of the development in Ukraine has shown that the economic sanctions haven’t had the intended impact, which may have contributed to an escalation of the conflict, as the EU and Russia will continue to pull Ukraine from both sides.
