Dr. Coyle examines the origins and execution of Russian military and political activities in Moldova, Georgia, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan and concludes that there are substantial similarities in the four case studies: Russian support for minority separatist movements, conflict, Russian intervention as peacekeepers, Russian control over the diplomatic process to prevent resolution of the conflict, and a perpetuation of Russian presence in the area.

  How are these strategies increasing Russian global power? In what ways are Russian political activities in neighboring countries undermining the chances for democracy to take hold? What responses should Western leaders make to inhibit the spread of Russian power in the former Soviet republics?

James J. Coyle is Director of Global Education, Chapman University, USA and a Non-Resident Senior Research Fellow at the Atlantic Council. Dr. Coyle previously held a variety of positions in the US government, including Director of Middle East Studies, US Army War College.
