Summary/Abstract: November did not bring the expected calm to the countries of the region, although several important steps were taken towards it. In Moldova, the euphoria over Maia Sandu’s sensational victory in the presidential race has been replaced by exaggerated demands from voters and an unreasonable expectation of quick results from her work. What changes are coming to the country and the region? In Georgia, the opposition does not recognize the election results and refuses to enter the parliament. The country’s legislature risks remaining oneparty with only 90 out of 150 seats filled if the boycott of opposition parties continues. The 44-day war ended in Nagorno-Karabakh. However, the peace agreement, signed at the Kremlin’s proposal, sparked protests in both Azerbaijan and Armenia. In Yerevan, the agreement is called treason and calls for the resignation of the prime minister are loud. Meanwhile, in Baku the opposition is concerned about the deployment of Russian peacekeepers to Karabakh. Protests against the regime of Lukashenko continue in Belarus, as do the use of force by the authorities and arrests of protesters. The most important developments of November in the Eastern Partnership analyzed in our digest. /// CONTENT: Analytica: Presidential Elections in Moldova: Interim Success of Maia Sandu // Azerbaijan: War Ended in a Victory // Crisis in Post-War Armenia // Belarus: Lukashenko Сalls on “Taking No Prisoners” and Closes Borders with the EU // Georgian Parliament with No Opposition // Moldova: New President – New Hopes // Three November Challenges for Ukraine: “COVID”, Anti-Corruption and Financial Ones
