Ever since Russia's annexation of the Crimea in 2014 there has been a persistent debate about whether the geopolitical struggle between Moscow and Washington/Brussels can be described as a second Cold War. This briefing will examine the ongoing tensions, balance of military capabilities, and strategic competition between Russia and the US/NATO.

Specifically, Jane's experts will cover:

o The status of NATO's Enhanced Forward Presence mission and the US military's reinforcement of capabilities across Europe;

o The military capabilities of key NATO countries, including the Baltic Republics, and Russia;

o The state of the nuclear balance and arms control measures;

o Russian and NATO intervention and proxy fights in the Ukraine and Syria.
