Offices of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung in Prague and Warsaw asked their partner organisations to systematically analyse how the V4 countries have dealt with the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Particular consideration was to be given to the differing historical experiences, public opinions, economic relations, and energy and foreign policy of the Visegrad countries. Among the contributors to the study was also our director, Petr Kratochvíl.
