ENC Analysis: Walking a Fine Line- Kyrgyzstan’s Foreign Policy post-2022

The European Neighbourhood Council (ENC) released a new analysis on how Kyrgyzstan navigates the challenging situation in its foreign policy, in light of the Russia’s war in Ukraine.

This article is written by our Academic Council Member Dr. Aijan Sharshenova, a Research Fellow at the Foreign Policy Centre, UK.

After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Central Asian countries had to swiftly alter their narratives and behaviors regarding foreign policy. In this ENC analysis, the author examines how the Republic of Kyrgyzstan expresses its foreign policy preferences, as a nation that finds itself in a very challenging position by being dependent on both the Russian economy and Western development aid.
