The crisis in Ukraine has led to a major reassessment of threat perceptions and military strategies in much of Europe. To face this crisis, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in particular has developed a Readiness Action Plan, which includes a new rapid reaction force to respond to any potential military crisis in NATO’s eastern states and the continuous rotational deployment of NATO forces on exercise in the Baltic states (see chapter 9). In turn, Russia, which has long viewed the expansion of NATO with foreboding, has upgraded its view of the threat posed by NATO in its most recent defence strategy document, and is seeking to continue unabated with its rearmament programme despite its poor economic position resulting from falling oil prices and Western sanctions.
