Brief description if the course. This course is an introduction to the role of Ukraine in the Baltic-Black Sea region (BBSR), which is the area of the collision of the geostrategic interests of politically influential states and Eurasian geopolitical axes. The high transit level of its territory contributes to the development of geospatial ties and common interests with neighboring countries in the context of European and Euro-Atlantic integration. In today’s conditions of Russian aggression in Ukraine, the growth of information and military threats to international security in Europe is important for deepening the cooperation and integration of the Baltic Sea and Black Sea basin states. We believe that Ukraine’s active participation in the Baltic-Black Sea partnership will contribute not only to solving current problems in the country, but also to promote its national interests in the international arena.
The objectives of the course are:
– to provide an advanced understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of the geopolitical and geographical position of Ukraine in the Baltic-Black Sea region;
– to identify the strategic interests of Ukraine in the BBSR;
– to deepen and systematize knowledge about the priorities, mechanisms and forms of regional cooperation between the Baltic Sea States and the Black Sea countries with the participation of Ukraine;
– to analyze the impact of the external and internal factors on Ukraine’s regional policy as well as the regional cooperation in the BBSR.
