    power seeking to preserve the Potsdam Agreement of 1945 that helped establish Europe s postwar order Today s Russia on the other hand is a revisionist power It regards the 1991 settlement that reunified Germany as a defeat and continues to try and overturn it It s even on a mission to rewrite history too A new documentary on Russian state television has portrayed both the crushing of the 1956 Hungarian uprising and the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia as reasonable responses to Western aggression President Vladimir Putinrecently even defended the Molotov Ribbentrop pact of nonaggression signed by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany Some voices in Europe are now looking to Harmel s report for modern day lessons But let s draw the right lessons Harmel s main point on re engagement was that the relaxation of tensions was not the final goal The priority he said was to strengthen the Western alliance The same logic should guide us today NATO s capabilities should be based on sober threat analyses not illusions Anything that the Kremlin perceives as weakness will encourage it to press ahead We saw this in 1968 when just a year after re engagement the Soviet Union invaded Czechoslovakia And we see this now when after a hasty reset following the 2008 war in Georgia the Kremlin last year started another war in Ukraine If we are going to re engage Russia it should be based on our values and commitments not wishful thinking NATO and the EU should be prepared for a long drawn out process and not give in just for the sake of a resolution Contact relations and engagement with Russia are still possible Vital even the Russian people are not our enemies Diplomatic dialogue with Russia can be maintained at NATO s 50 member Euro Atlantic Partnership Council which includes other eastern partners such as Ukraine Concessions or retreats whether at our own expense or negotiated over the heads of our allies have no place This means we shouldn t backtrack on support for Ukraine and our other eastern partners We should help build their defence capabilities and their resilience to Russia s hybrid attacks More broadly we shouldn t falter on NATO s open door policy and our ultimate goal of a Europe whole free and at peace We do not and will not accept the Kremlin s new normal based on out dated thinking about spheres of influence and a zero sum mentality We shouldn t be too worried about disappointing Russia Instead we should worry about the greater danger of disappointing our own people We in the frontline states of Europe need to be reassured of NATO s readiness adaptability and deterrence Let s learn the lessons from our past Mr Linkevičius is Lithuania s minister of foreign affairs Twitter feed about an hour ago RT Number10gov PM EU roaming charges now down to near zero gone entirely next year Consumers are better off remaining in the EU https about
