the morning. garcia marquez family has yet to decide where to spread his conscience. they may be divided between his native colombia. i knew. or for the team here in the news or in fifty minutes trying to stay with us. the banks are joining us today we analyze the ukrainian crisis as seen from brussels events in ukraine to pose a formidable challenge to the european union. europe is trying to assert itself diplomatically and offered to have an alternative to russia's domination but within a new divisions dependence on russian gas in the absence of a political vision for ukraine. of all blunted europe's influence. joining us from berlin to talk about this is michael e of the german marshall fund he's a specialist on the eastern europe in former soviet bloc also a former director general of enlargement. for the european commission. i'm
6:46 am
mentally first question to you. college of a priority is ukraine from brussels today there is that one gets the impression when one looks to be that the way this crisis has unfolded that between europe and russia it's really the one who cares about ukraine most who manages to assert himself most it is that accurate did you see that in brussels. in brussels that has been a strategy for ukraine. since two thousand and eight the year has been the cars hit an extremely wide ranging agreement with ukraine. in fact as i'm sure you recall it was differences over the signature this agreement and yanukovich is the refusal in fact to sign it. that led to them i dun events and everything living through now so europe has been rather proactive on ukraine. it's true that the member states i do not have an appetite
6:47 am
for new members. i'm psyched for the time being but short of membership the eu offer to pray far reaching partnership but all this is somewhat economic somewhat technical comes to good to miss maren existential not. he's enunciated in utah and treachery of limited sovereignty for countries with large russian speaking mine are just a hint it's not a question of economics or its integration. it's a fundamental russian national interest. so what does your walkman as he sits in a it's an existential mentor for for russia. what's done in europe trying to get out of having influences surfing influence in ukraine europe's main edition has been to have a range of twelve thousand democracy is surrounding the european union where the two big east or to the south as a guarantee of stability basically we don't want problems and instability flows of people own refugees asylum seekers. criminal
6:48 am
gangs spilling over from countries like ukraine into neighboring regions of the european union. we see it as in our own interest to introduce a policy that would strengthen democracy in the mood of torque and fight corruption and criminality in ukraine both the ukraine's own benefit and to protect ourselves. it's interesting that you should say that because in fact under the previous government in ukraine when russia still had a very strong role to play in ukraine and end with the authorities in kiev. i really don't see what the danger. it was for europe i don't see what the former you can with danger the former ukraine post the euro. when you see you know all of the books instability really means you know for years and this we talked about democracy human rights the more neutral oldies very sound principles and we can trust it and what instability corruption and
6:49 am
criminality and so on. what about the things that we warned against him actually become reality. so it was to try and prevent these sorts of developments. but europe wanted to become a close partnership with ukraine. and it was the rejection of the partnership by yanukovich that led to the events that we see today. so what leverage does europe currently have in ukraine one sometimes gets the impression that europe is not fighting with the same weapons as as moscow it's true that moscow doesn't think twice about records two folds. in fact this is the first time since the end of the cold war that we have seen borders in europe being changed by the use of force the european union and the united states has ruled out from the very beginning there are a force. we are trying to use other means when trying to strengthen democratic forces within ukraine which tried to
6:50 am
provide economic assistance they can shore up its very weak state that has some fundamental structural problems and economic problems. the same time we are imposing sanctions together with united states that shows russia today is a price to pay. but if you asked about the order of magnitude of the instruments that we are ready to use compact with russia. it's true we are using if you like most modern instruments while russia has stopped back in the earlier part of the twentieth century or even the late nineteenth century and its willingness to use holds an incident in the present week and post modernism work against the use of force. i think we have to think again. in particular we have to consider how the european union. and what better side to side with nature which is on patrol fundamentally a minute reliance. we've seen in the last day is a great deal of nervousness by countries which are both met
6:51 am
nato allies and eu members qantas flight mode and estonia latvia who are starting to wonder who might be next. and nature has taken some rot the strong measures and peeking out aerial patrols in planning various exercises in these countries which should send a message to mr putin that if he tried to push his new doctrine in two countries which are new members and nato allies he could expect a mock shock response is the crisis in ukraine it is spring the renewed debate over a common european defence policy. certainly this is something which is receiving considerable attention in brussels and during the election campaign the european parliament in may. this is the perfect occasion for different candidates put forward their different points of view on
6:52 am
this the fact of the match raise the roof of the moment when it comes to problems in europe. unlike peacekeeping operations on humanitarian operations in distant continents. the division of responsibility between eight am and the eu is pretty clear so if we look back to georgia which i think is a good example or a good framework at least understand what's going on in ukraine at the time of the russia georgia war that was six years ago in two thousand and eight. a man of europe to intervene and obtained officially at least a ceasefire. the six years on what you see is that south the center which was at the center of the conflicts out this it is essentially admits of a rush of people there not only speak russian happened in the russian passport and use russian currency but to all intents and purposes of this it is no longer a part of of georgia and is a part of russia has you have learnt any lessons from that conflict. i think you see now that the european
6:53 am
neighbourhood policy which has governed our approach to these countries and the cost is going to be subject to serious review of connections to the european parliament in may afp a new foreign policy chief with the eu. and i think one of the items are to be at the top of that person's agenda in which the commission should be interrogated during hearings in european parliament is a new vision a new approach to our own neighborhood. that takes into account the very real threats that we've seen over the last few weeks. but one of the fact is that ways particularly heavily in and year of diplomacy in europe stance he's in the russian of course is the dependence of a large number of european countries on russian gas that issue had already been brought up six years ago when we discussed in europe's response to the georgian crisis again have any lessons we learn as you have done anything to lessen its dependence on russian gas. as always we have this
6:54 am
prostitute. i went to the strategy remains entirely on paper. various steps had been taken. as you know the european commission has taken some legal steps against cast concrete from pole to try and challenge its monopolistic position. both the supplier of gas and owner of networks. but all the things we need to do much more. we need to be in a position to diversified but different sorts of energy we use doubts boil over in europe both musically and itchy. and also to diversify the geographic sources of energy to do this effectively we need to have that second to connect its between different parts of the network in europe so we can switch quickly to different sources of supply and we need to increase the supplies from existing export as a guest of the european union. like norway of judea and comp time and we have to look into new sources of supply such as
6:55 am
the east in addition radiant and for that night to united states. at home and he and his enemy is about as all of that happening because this is something i remember um was said six years ago during the georgia crisis once again is happening today. are we exploring other avenues seriously. when exploring them but all disney much greater urgency needs to be given to the us. the vision is clear we know what we have to do. but now is the time to get down to business and a very brief aim is to leave what do you think europe should propose to ukraine what is the political projects. the political vision that europe should be putting forward to authorities and care. europe should and is putting forward kiki had a vision of how a modern state can be run respecting the road of cruel without corruption at all levels of society as has been the case until now. we can chat with ukraine summit
6:56 am
the expertise we can take some photo enlargement process about how best to fight corruption. what ukraine really needs are free and fair elections in may. so that the new authorities that come to power or of unquestioned legitimacy. and those authorities need to put to death of an electorate that the addition of a democratic country that respects the rule of law where corruption is not present or levels of life and the eu needs to be there and is that with a major program of assistance to bring this vision to reality. mr lee thinks they are now suspected joining us on a farm in depth interview. from berlin will continue to fall in love is on the ukrainian crisis in europe's position he's in the ukraine right here on carbon caps and do stay tuned for news coming the debate
