Abstract. The Ukrainian border presents a danger for the security of the EU, which is in front of a migration crisis. This time, however, to the point of view of the previous situations with which the EU has faced, the migration crisis does not bring with it possible elements of terrorism, but in itself represents a threat to the EU: both from an economic point of view (humanity facing an unprecedented recession) and from a strategic point of view (ending good-quality relations with the Russian Federation, the aggressor state). The present paper has the aim of identifying the last major crises with which the EU faced (due to the migration of 2015 and the pandemic caused by the virus COVID-19) in the attempt to identify the main risks with which the EU leadership has faced in the following period and the possibility of treating it.
