This article takes a closer look at potentials and limits of the EU Strategic Compass in order to show throughout the glace of the document more precisely where the limits of European Union’s and Member States’ action are within the European security and defence realm, both legally and politically. Finally, this article tries to detect if the Strategic Compass is an appropriate answer for transformation of European security after Russia’s military escalation at the EU’s eastern flank.
