The following discussion explicitly does this by investigating ways in which an external event, the unfolding of the Ukraine crisis, reverberates in the Baltic Sea area. Under the impression of the Ukraine crisis, and Russia’s assertive role in particular, BSR regionalism has come under strain, accompanied by a readjustment of the security constellation in the area (see Etzold and Steinicke 2015).
Importantly, the securitisations currently performed in the area, often no more than the reactivation of old templates of securitisation (see Adler and Greve 2009, 74), draw on the normative frames made available by the underlying configurations of primary institutions. Given regional differentiation, patterns of securitisation in the BSR therefore diverge along the regional boundary, giving rise to what Mölder (2011) has labelled a “cooperative security dilemma”. The danger of a militarisation of the BSR is a direct consequence, visible in the recurrent airspace violations by Russia, the military build-up in the Kaliningrad exclave, the holding of large-scale military exercises, or, in response thereof, the increased NATO presence in the area.

Similarly, the gravitating of nonNATO members Finland and Sweden towards the Western alliance (see Etzold and Steinicke 2015, 3) can be seen in this light, occurring not, or not primarily, out of a concern for material balancing, but following the pattern of securitisation of the European society.
