NATO Review

    • Standing by Afghanistan 15 Apr. 2016 Having been rebuilt from scratch, the Afghan security forces have come a long way. They are fighting terrorists and insurgents with courage and honour. But they need better leadership as well as financial support for years to come.
    • Securing the Nordic-Baltic region 17 Mar. 2016 How are NATO Allies and partners, Finland and Sweden, working together to defend this strategically important region in the current security context?
    • Odessa: Ukraine’s secret weapon? 18 Jan. 2016 Odessa has been attacked. Many times. But it has found a way to make the attacks bring people together. NATO Review travelled to the southern Ukrainian region to find out the secret of its success.
    • Don’t forget the Black Sea 20 Nov. 2015 NATO Review goes on patrol with Ukraine’s Black Sea border guards, who have themselves been victims of terror attacks at sea.
    • Why patrolling the Black Sea just got more dangerous 19 Nov. 2015 When Russia annexed Crimea, it affected the whole of the Black Sea region. NATO Review went out on patrol with Ukraine’s border guards to see how they have adapted and hear about how they have already suffered fatalities.
    • Sanctions after Crimea: Have they worked? 13 Jul. 2015 There is no military solution to the Ukraine problem’ is a phrase that has been repeated numerous times since the conflict began. But could there be an economic solution? In our latest piece, NATO’s Defence economist looks at how effective Western sanctions have been in hurting Russia’s economy – and how the countries who imposed them have fared. And some of the results are surprising.
    • Could ISIL go nuclear? 26 May. 2015 As ISIL’s in-house journalist warns that there is an ‘infinitely’ greater chance of the group making a nuclear attack on the West, Wolfgang Rudischhauser looks at how much of this claim is bluff – and how much should be taken seriously.
    • Deterrence: what it can (and cannot) do 20 Apr. 2015 Deterrence is designed to influence behaviour. But it has its limitations. Michael Ruehle illustrates how deterrence has never been a silver bullet – but also how maybe the West needs to relearn some of its nuances.
    • Blood brothers? 30 Mar. 2015 There's a Baltic state that is preparing for future Russian aggression. A state which suffered similar threats and attacks as those seen in Ukraine today. That was 25 years ago when the country tried to leave the Soviet Union. Today it sits in NATO and the EU. NATO Review takes an in depth look at why Lithuania knows Russia - and the Ukrainian situation - so well.
    • Escape from Crimea: the ecologist 19 Mar. 2015 Few would have supposed that an ecologist would be targeted by the Russian authorities when they occupied Crimea. But this man was given 40 minutes to get out of his homeland. Find out why in his brief story.
    • Escape from Crimea: the journalist 17 Mar. 2015 Russia’s plans for the Crimea became obvious to the peninsula’s journalists before many others. Freedoms dried up, investigations were obstructed, arrests and beatings followed. Here an editor who was forced to flee Crimea outlines what happened there as the Russian plan unfolded.
