Abstract: The annexation of the Crimea by, and making it a part of, the Russian Federation not only cast a long shadow on the relations between Russia and Ukraine (formally, both states are members of the Commonwealth of Independent States – an organization which provides, among other things, a platform for a dialogue in international disputes) but also boosted the dynamics of issues connected with the security of the entire Black Sea region. So far, the Black Sea region, despite its instability, particularly in Caucasus and the Middle East, has been regarded as relatively balanced, although the brittle nature of its security has been noticed. Russia’s introduction of a military factor as a prelude to political and system solutions is not only a violation of this delicate balance but also a forecast of further changes which will result in substantial changes in the security structure of the Black Sea region.
