US ROLE IN THE BLACK SEA REGION

US ROLE IN THE BLACK SEA REGION

The US remains the only true superpower with a global reach. In reaching out to the Black Sea, the US has a variety of tools and levers: diplomatic, political, economic, and military. It acts here unilaterally and also as a team member. Does the Black Sea area belong to the list of priorities for the US? The range of interests in play for the US here is wide: security, geopolitics, energy, values promotion, military projection, and more. It has some eager regional partners to work with, but also an influential and ambivalent partner in Turkey, as well as an adversarial counterpart in Russia. The occupation of Crimea by Russia in 2014 has added some new features and urgency to the US role in the region.
