Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think it is very much in the interest of the EU to shore up the former Soviet republics, not so much out of concern for the possibility that they may fall back under Russian control, but because of the potential for internal unrest. Belarus should be of particular concern, but also obviously Moldava, Ukraine, Armenia dn Georgia.
