War in Ukraine: What does it mean for Southeast Asia?

    The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has raised difficult questions for Southeast Asian countries. They have an interest in upholding international law and order, principally the inviolability of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of nations.

    At the same time, Southeast Asian countries have practical interests to consider, especially as they pertain to economic, defence and technical cooperation with all the countries in this conflict.

    What explains the range of responses from Southeast Asia? How will sanctions affect trade, defence and other forms of cooperation with Russia? Is a meaningful response by Asean possible?
