As a consequence, it did not become politically salient. In this way, prevailing ambiguity over actual meanings of primary institutions (that is, their meaning in practice) inside/outside the European society put in place the very conditions of possibility for BSR regionalism. In absence of normative convergence, ambiguity provided a surrogate, it compensated for the essential lack of what was believed to be—or anticipated to become—the “common grounds” upon which secondary institutions in the Baltic Sea area could be, and were, established.
Russia’s dissatisfaction with the progressive structuring of the BSR in and on the terms of the European society is consequential as Russia remains a significant factor in the unfolding of political dynamics in the BSR, preventing them from actually taking shape as politics “inside” the European society.
