Rather than EU-China freight passing EU-Russia-Kazakhstan-China, with that route now disconnected, the alternative southern route EU-Georgia/Turkey-Azerbaijan-Kazakhstan-China has now come to the fore. The issue here for the EU is that Russia is a powerful Caspian Sea nation and a member of the Caspian Littoral States group, which includes the “Caspian Five” – Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan.
