What is "shunned over"? don't care? Europe shouldn’t make the “huge mistake” of avoiding dialogue with Russia, French President Emmanuel Macron told The Economist, continuing his recent overtures to the country that the West has shunned over its annexation of Crimea.

If you shun someone, you refuse to speak to them. The word 'over' has the same meaning as 'because of' in this context. It means that the West is avoiding dialogue with Russia because of its annexation of Crimea.
