The Russian exclave of Kaliningrad sits on the Baltic coast, cut off from the Russian mainland. The fall of the Soviet Union, and Poland and Lithuania's subsequent joining of the EU and NATO as well as their entering the Schengen Zone has left Kaliningrad increasingly isolated from the rest of Russia. In the current international climate the oblast holds a particular importance as tension grows between Russia and the EU. The project aims to provide an understanding and insight into the lives and interests of this young, post-Soviet generation and their place in a new Europe.
