The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the US- and EU-led response to it are watershed events in global affairs with far-reaching political and economic implications for East and Southeast Asian stability. Governments in these regions have largely sided with the USA and the EU in the General Assembly of the United Nations; however, due to historically rooted and strategic reasons, most Southeast Asian governments did not join the West’s efforts in sanctioning Russia. As the long-term consequences of the geopolitical and economic shifts initiated by this conflict will become discernible, analysis of the divergent perspectives in public opinions and civil society organizations as well as the evaluation states’ responses are urgent. This panel discussion is a first attempt to provide a critical assessment of the responses of selected countries across East and Southeast Asia.
