Summary/Abstract: The contemporary European security environment is the subject of dynamic, complex and irregular changes with consequences on regional and global plan. Europe is flawed by numerous recent and latent crises and conflicts developed in its area of interest or its close vicinity and many of these are susceptible of major complex effects. Among these the crises lately damaging very seriously the European space produce complex effects in all the perceived security dimensions are: economic-financial crisis initiated in US but reached to exponentially harm the whole world states, including the European ones; the effervescence of new terrorist actions started to scar in an unprecedented manner the developed states in the Western Europe by inducing fear and uncertainty along the population and the Ukrainian crisis impacted by the illegitimate intervention of the Russian troops on the sovereign territory of its neighbour state, case that is the object of our present analysis. Thus, in this material we will analyse the major complex effects of the Ukrainian crisis on the European security environment by different perspectives in its successive phases of evolvement, escalation and de-escalation. For this, we initiate the analysis by identifying and presenting the types of generator factors (political, diplomatic, economic, social, financial, military, informational, communicational, biological, psychological, ecological, etc.) from which afterward derived major complex effects on the European security field.
