Dear Readers of Eurasia Outlook,

2014 has been a crucial year for Ukraine’s future, and a turning point in Russia’s relations with the West. It has been a year in which Eurasia’s geopolitical axis moved a few inches farther to the east. China continues to emerge as the continent's premier power, and India begins to energize its foreign policy to serve the goal of domestic development. Turkey asserts itself as a pivotal player between the west and the east, and Iran edges closer to abandoning isolation and reengaging with the rest of the world.

Trenin, director of the Carnegie Moscow Center, has been with the center since its inception. He also chairs the research council and the Foreign and Security Policy Program.

Throughout the year, Eurasia Outlook has been trying to bring to your attention a variety of views from across the vast region on the region itself. Some of these views may have appeared controversial, provoking your comments, but the spirit of the enterprise should be clear to all: to give our readers around the world a credible independent source of evidence-based analysis and knowledge- and experience-based expertise. We are proud to serve you. At the beginning of 2015, we are taking a customary holiday break. We will be back on January 12. Thank you, and a very happy 2015 to you all!
