Russia's war in Ukraine is the most serious military aggression in Europe since 1945. It has provoked the worst crisis in Russian-Western relations in over three decades. It is transforming the geopolitical landscape and having a profound impact on international trade and finance. There are fears that its escalation could lead to the use of weapons of mass destruction. What choices face the West? How will diplomatic, military and economic dimensions evolve? What will its long-term impact be?
