We are happy to present the seventh issue of "Tochki nad U": East European Security Monthly. 

Key developments in regional security in Eastern Europe in January 2023:

  1. Russia has resumed its slow advance in Donbass and relies on continuing the war without a fundamental change of its policy.
  2. The war approaches new portions of Belarus’s border, and Minsk is reinforcing its southern frontiers.
  3. Western arms supplies have been broadening the escalation track, which can only be surmounted through a major European crisis.
  4. Disagreements are observed within NATO and even more so within the CSTO.
  5. The political economy of war is not yet in favour of peace talks.

The issue is also available in PDF.
