The Russia-Belarus Union State and the Relevance of the Suwalki Gap

by London Politica

5 September 2023

In this paper we discuss:

  • The Russia-Belarus federation (Union State);
  • The purposes of the Union State, and who dominates it;
  • The recent tensions between Poland and Belarus, as a by-product of Russia's war in Ukraine;
  • The geo-strategic relevance of the Suwalki gap; and
  • The risks of an over-militarisation of this small land corridor in Eastern Europe.
