Summary/Abstract: The current situation in the Black Sea Region is extremely complex due to the deep crisis in Ukraine, the continuing fires in Donbass, Russia’s role in the “frozen conflicts”, intensifying militarization of Crimea and the entire region.Russia has often used armed forces outside its borders as an instrument of its foreign policy pressure. The creation of territorial buffer zones in the Black Sea Region is becoming an element in the behaviour of Kremlin. Arms race between Russia and NATO has entered into a peculiar spiral whose end is not visible. This is a serious risk to the security of the region, having a destabilizing impact on the NATO – Russia relationship and does not contribute to reducing the escalation of tensions in South-Eastern borders of the Alliance.
