The main focus of the Fall-Winter issue (no. 2 (63), 2022) is on the problems of global food security and the ways they relate to and are affected by sanctions and armed conflicts. The first six articles explore the impact of sanctions on food security and the interlinkages between food security and conflicts, including in the context of the conflict in Ukraine; food security problems and the ways to address them in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as in East Africa and in the countries of the Western Hemisphere; and the use of hunger as a weapon in the historical context (in the case of the siege of Leningrad). The next four articles deal with the Taiwan crisis. China’s strategy of unification with Taiwan and the implications of the new escalation of tensions for the U.S.–China relations are analyzed, and prospects for a military solution are assessed. The third set of articles addresses the nuclear nonproliferation issues, including the erosion of the international nonproliferation regime, with the focus on the partial failure of the 2022 Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference, and the prospects for a nuclear-free zone in Central and Eastern Europe. It also explores the nuclear security and safety issues by analyzing the verification activity of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
