Russia’s attack on Ukraine on February 24, violating international law, shocked the global community and brought war to Europe – along with fears of a nuclear escalation. Europe and its allies are responding with tough sanctions against Russia in the areas of finance, energy, and technology. In a sudden change of course, the German government has approved arms deliveries that it had previously rejected. While international appeals for a ceasefire are being made to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, one thing is already clear: the European security order as we knew it no longer exists. The German government’s radical U-turn in security and defense policy is only one facet of that.

This dossier provides an overview of DGAP’s diverse expertise and activities on the conflict. See below for statements on current developments, in-depth analyses on how it could have come to this, and recommendations for action to the German government, as well as numerous interviews and high-profile discussion panels.

Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik engagiert sich für eine nachhaltige deutsche und europäische Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik, die auf Demokratie, Frieden und Rechtsstaatlichkeit ausgerichtet ist. Diese Werte müssen angesichts des völkerrechtswidrigen Angriffskriegs Russlands auf die Ukraine erst recht mit allen Mitteln verteidigt werden. Im Rahmen unserer langjährigen Arbeit zur Region haben wir ein Netzwerk von Partnern und Alumni in der Ukraine aufgebaut. Mit ihnen fühlen wir uns in diesen Zeiten besonders verbunden.

Hier finden Sie Informationen für unsere Alumni und Partner vor Ort sowie DGAP-Mitglieder, die helfen möchten.

Ukraine’s Missile Attack against Russia’s Saki Military Airport

Ukraine has demonstrated that it has a new, long-range, precision-strike capability. This is likely to alter the military realities on the ground, particularly in the Kherson direction, creating more favorable conditions for Ukraine’s long-planned counter-offensive. Meanwhile, the weakening of Russia’s dominance of conventional escalation might create new strategic risks.
