Europe is the only region that has created an integrated conventional arms control architecture. However, geopolitical divisions between Russia and most of the rest of the Europe over the past two decades have resulted in its erosion to the point of collapse or irrelevance—part of a wider crisis in arms control. While the Vienna Document made it possible to draw critical attention to Russia’s military build-up on its border with Ukraine, for example, it could not reverse the escalation or prevent the full-scale Russian invasion in February 2022 (see section I). The existing conventional arms control instruments also appear to have little relevance to conflict management in other long-standing, simmering conflicts in Europe, and rebuilding a new order containing supporting elements of arms control will be extremely difficult.
