The project on NATO sea power is about preventing potential future conflict in the Baltic Sea from Rusty Stephens, Captain, USN (Ret.).
Following thirty years of European euphoria since the end of the Cold War and the demise of the Soviet Union, the Baltic Sea Area has gained new importance for NATO and the West. This is due to Russia’s new aggressiveness toward Europe and the United States, primarily fueled by its desire to regain ‘great nation status’ following the Cold War. It is thus most arguably important to understand the current maritime situation in the Baltic Sea Area and what NATO needs to do about it in order to ensure ongoing peace and security in the Area and across Europe.
