Warfighting in Ukraine in 2022-2023 has become the first large-scale armed conflict in Europe in the 21st century that directly involves Russia and NATO. The scale of events, the geography of operations, the number of weapons used and the personnel engaged require a reassessment of military development and defense spending priorities in many countries around the world. This article analyzes certain features of the current armed conflict and the decisions already made by individual countries. The authors come to the conclusion that given the scale of military buildup in Europe and elsewhere it is advisable to think about new measures to reduce risks now and establish effective arms control in the future.
