Russia continues an aggressive, risky foreign policy of expansionism and probing for advantage in Europe and the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Europe has maintained broad cohesion. NATO remains durable and viable addressing military challenges outside of Europe while Germany has formed a buffer between Russian aggression and the security of the West.
