Debates on Finlandization for Ukraine

Language: English

The issue of Ukraine’s prospective future membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) surfaced again recently with the publication of the latest public opinion poll, according to which, a historical high of almost 64 percent of Ukrainians supports joining the North Atlantic Alliance (UNIAN, August 3). But as the Russian-Ukrainian conflict continues to rage on in Donbas (Pravda.com.ua, August 11), such popular sentiment regarding Kyiv’s relationship with NATO is likely to revive debates on Ukraine’s “Finlandization”—a strategic option notably proposed by Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski since the beginning of the crisis. Although all agree that Finlandization would mean ruling out Ukraine ever joining NATO, there seems to be a general lack of consensus within the expert community regarding the extent to which a Finlandization strategy should define Ukraine’s economic, foreign or security policies.
