Germany has emerged as the surprise foreign policy leader in the European Union following Russia’s annexation of Crimea. Its close economic and energy ties with Moscow have given it the chance to offer a negotiated way out of the conflict or face tougher sanctions. So far Russia has succeeded only in driving Ukraine closer to the West.

The West’s response to Russia’s moves in Crimea are widely regarded as weakness by Russian foreign policy experts. They perceive that Europe would not impose sanctions which damage its own economies and see Russian President Vladimir Putin as pursuing his Eurasian Union strategy and Ukraine as the key to achieving this.

Germany’s Energiewende or energy policy was introduced without consultation with its neighbours or the EU, but it is having an impact on both. The assumptions which led to the dramatic change from nuclear power to renewables has been proved wrong and this could accelerate costing Germany jobs, economic growth and a drop in the standard of living.
