With improved transatlantic relations, US-China great power competition has spread to various areas and fields, ranging from critical technologies to supply chains to hypersonic missiles to nuclear missile silos and trade. Given the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, the European Union (EU) is concerned about the growing Russia-China no-limit partnership and China’s ambiguous stance on the conflict. With EU’s relationship with Russia and China are on a swing, growing Russia-China nexus has made the West-China great power competition tortuous. Given as the Ukraine conflict’s impact grows with China becoming the EU’s strategic rival, it pushed EU members to diversify their reliance and relationship with Russia and China in order to protect their national interests. As China and Russia emphasise ‘indivisible security’ and ‘legitimate concerns’ to protect and promote their national and strategic interests, it is interpreted as an attempt to change the global order. While NATO continues to provide umbrella protection in Europe, it has avoided direct involvement in the Indo-Pacific region to counter China. Thus, it will be a strenuous task for Europe to unite and achieve strategic autonomy, counter the Russian and Chinese threats, and secure its interests on the continent and in the Indo-Pacific region.
