The year 2014 saw major armed conflict return to Europe. During the year, the number of deaths recorded for the Ukraine conflict reached at least 4364—more than twice that recorded for the previous major armed conflict in Europe, in Georgia in 2008.1 Moreover, at the end of the year, fighting in eastern Ukraine intensified and there were no indications that the conflict could be resolved quickly or easily. However, the issues at stake in Ukraine were not confined to the tragic loss of life, the displacement of people and the destruction of property. The Ukraine conflict was the catalyst for a further deterioration in the overall European security environment, with the attendant risk of a potentially dangerous slide into escalating confrontation between major powers. Diverse reasons are advanced for this progressive deterioration in the European security environment.
