In 2005, when the first issue of the magazine was published, then-Russian President Vladimir Putin called the collapse of the Soviet Union the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 21st century.
The current president of the Russian Federation, the same Vladimir Putin, goes further and seems to want to revive the USSR in 2022. At least in the basic version of the Slavic-Orthodox unity of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
The creeping Anschluss of Belarus in 2021 gained momentum. Russia's takeover of Belarus means a deterioration in the geostrategic position of both Ukraine and the center of NATO's eastern flank and the EU. Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland receive not only migration waves of hybrid Russian aggression at the hands of the Belarusian usurper against Europe, but also a military threat from the deployment of additional forces and means of the Russian armed forces.
The latter can be implemented at any time under the false pretext of opposing the expansion of NATO's military infrastructure.
