The Ukraine issue has rapidly escalated into a major geopolitical crisis, the most severe test of the relationship between Russia and the West since the Cold War. And it is far from resolved. Andrew Wilson's account situates the crisis within Russia's covert ambition since 2004 to expand its influence within the former Soviet periphery, and over countries that have since joined the EU and NATO, such as the Baltic States. He shows how Russia has spent billions developing its soft power within central Europe, aided by US diplomatic inattention in the area, and how Putin's conservative values project is widely misunderstood in he West. The book examines Yanukovych's corrupt 'coup d'etat' of 2010 and provides the most intimate day-by-day account we have of the protests in Kiev from November 2013 to February 2014 (at which Wilson was present). It explores the military coup in Crimea, the role of Russia and long-term tensions with the Muslim Crimean Tatars. It covers the election of 25 May 2014 and the prospects for new president Petro Poroshenko. And it analyses other states under pressure from Russia - Georgia, Moldova, Belarus. 'Russia will clearly not stop at Ukraine'. Andrew Wilson has been covering the Ukrainian crisis in newspapers, broadcasts and digital media (see link, was in the Maidan, Kiev, for the crucial demonstrations in February, and briefed the Chief of the Defence Staff at 10 Downing Street on his return. Recent features have been in the New York Times, USA Today, Wall St Journal, the Economist, the Guardian, London Evening Standard, among others.
