The New Geopolitical Board: Sweden and NATO Expansion

Sweden's recent accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (OTAN) represents a significant change in the European security landscape, reflecting a strategic move for both the country and the alliance. This decision, which breaks with Sweden's long history of neutrality, is a direct response to Russia's growing threat perception, especially after recent events like the invasion of Ukraine. According to the "South China Morning Post", Sweden's entry into NATO is a clear indication of growing concern about European security, marking a trend of hardening against external threats. Meanwhile, The "The Times of India" highlights that this expansion is alarming for Russia, which interprets NATO enlargement as a strategic movement..

Europe wakes up: the threat of Trump and the rebirth of European Defense

The former president and virtual presidential candidate for the Republican Party in the next United States elections, Donald Trump, provoked a political shockwave among the European allies of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (OTAN). In a campaign speech, Trump declared that he had warned the leader of “an important European country” that, if he failed to pay his financial obligations to the Alliance, he, as President of the USA, would refuse to defend the European country against a potential Russian invasion. Trump even suggested that, in this case, could encourage Russia to “do whatever it wants”. When mentioning non-compliance with financial obligations, Trump refers to the Alliance directive, created at a summit meeting held in País de Gal...

Russia-Ukraine: the spill over effect of weaponry

Photo by Valentyn Onyshchenko The war between Russia and Ukraine continues with slow steps and uncertain direction. Putin recently declared that he can make use of the options he has at hand., which raised the fear of the use of atomic weapons. Although we do not know what the outcome of this possibility will be, there is another problem that is already real and has not been discussed.: what is the current and future use of the huge amount of weapons made available in this war? In any war effort, no matter how much there is an attempt to control the resources, the truth is it's hard to really know what's going on. Its value was already relatively high before the war, the West has already surpassed the spending of US$ 10 billions in military support for Ukraine. They are expenses of the most varied,...

The Impact of the War in Ukraine on NATO and the European Union

By Karen Laura Feliciano and Laura Cariolin The Ukrainian War caused profound changes in the countries' relationship with international economic organizations and blocs.. In this context, two situations stand out: that of NATO and the European Union. The entry of new countries generated an intense debate, and destabilized interactions between states, having as one of the protagonists, in both cases, in Turkey. In the context of NATO, the entry of Sweden and Finland into the organization was stopped by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, while Ukraine's entry into the European Union was criticized by Turkey, that seeks to enter the block since 1999 (GERMAN WAVE, [s.d.]). Thus, it is clear that the War in Ukraine impacted the expansion of the EU and NATO. With regard to NATO, to its...

Finland and Sweden in NATO

REUTERS/Dado Ruvic/Illustration the president of russia, Putin stated that, always made it quite clear that the main reason for the invasion of Ukraine was the threat that the country's possible NATO membership posed to Russia's security. The strong objection must not be, only, the fact that Ukraine is a country closely linked to Russia, with common historical roots, that would be moving away from the orbit of Russian influence towards the Western Alliance and the European Union. But, mainly, always according to President Putin's line of reasoning, it would be another step in NATO's continued expansion towards Russian borders.. After all, former former soviet republics, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, in addition to former Warsaw Pact allies, Poland, Bulgaria, Ro...

NATO and the shifts in the balance of world power

Photo: REUTERS / Ints Kalnins On the last day 14 of June, the heads of government of 30 Allied countries that make up NATO met in Brussels. Reading the statement(1) provides a good understanding of how the most powerful military alliance in history views the current global situation., what threats they identify and what paths they will chart in defense matters, always keeping in view the three fundamental tasks of the Alliance: provide collective security, manage crises and strengthen security cooperation. Allies identify threats from all strategic directions, represented by the systemic competition of "authoritarian and assertive" powers; terrorism; state and non-state actors acting to undermine international order, or is it ...
