The end of the Cold War and the disbandment of Warsaw Pact conditioned the new geopolitical situation in Europe, creating an opportunity to build a new pan-European security system. Returning to the geopolitical code of the USSR in foreign and security policy, Russia encouraged the creation of Eurasian security structures (CSTO). The states of the former Soviet Union were faced with a geopolitical choice of security model. The power policy of Russia convinced Ukraine and Georgia to follow the Euro-Atlantic model, while Belarus and Armenia chose the Eurasian model. On the other hand, Moldova and Azerbaijan are balancing between these two security models. The aim of the panel is to analyse the conditions and prospects of security in Eastern Europe in the context of East-West rivalry.
