The article assesses the security dynamics surrounding Russia, with particular focus on Ukraine and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Ukraine was reportedly left without a clear political future following the collapse of the Berlin Wall in Germany. The article mentions the intention of Russia to reestablish its influence in the post-Soviet space. The implication of its attempt to gain Western acceptance of spheres of influence is noted. Also cited is the need for the U.S. to consider Central and Eastern European countries in its relation to Russia.
