Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's called Real politique.  Of the countries you mention (Spain, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, Bulgaria and Slovakia) really only Spain has any real clout and relations between the EU and Russia are deteriorating fast.  The shutters are coming down.  The main players in the EU are effectively saying to Russia that Kosova is within our strategic sphere of influence and we'll sort this out our way.  The rest of you can bugger off.
