ABSTRACT
The present paper analyses the importance of the Vilnius Summit for the Eastern Partnership and its impact on the 'common neighbourhood'. By 'common neighbourhood' we refer to the six former Soviet republics residing between the EU and the Russian Federation, namely: Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, and which are included in the Eastern Partnership initiative. The article undertakes a comparative analysis of the evolution of the six former Soviet republics within the framework of the Eastern Partnership, highlighting the differences between the levels of rapprochement with the EU of these countries on the eve of the Vilnius Summit. The research demonstrates that despite the negative perceptions of many scholars towards the third Eastern Partnership Summit, the aftermath of the Vilnius event has proved the contrary.
