In this policy brief for the College of Europe’s CEPOB series entitled “Conditionality in context – scenarios for EU relations with the Eurasian Economic Union”, I show how the EU’s conditionality on Russia after its annexation of Crimea and support to Donbass belligerents is fizzling out. The paper then develops and evaluates different scenarios for EU-EAEU relations. In a nutshell, rapprochement between the two regions will likely occur through a trade dialogue. Baby steps will be needed for mutual confidence building towards re-established constructive ties.
