In­tensive inter­national efforts at de-esca­lation in February 2022 were un­success­ful. Russia star­ted a war. The attack on Ukraine and the recog­nition of the self-pro­claimed Donetsk and Luhansk People's Re­publics are an open breach of inter­national law and a power-political aggression a­gainst the existing world order. The immedi­ate victims are the people of Ukraine. At the same time, the esca­lation of mili­tary violence raises ques­tions that go beyond the immediate con­flict. Peace and con­flict re­search, and the re­searchers at PRIF in par­ticular, are addressing the war in Ukraine from diffe­rent per­spectives.

The PRIF blog series on Ukraine offers timely ana­lyses of recent de­velop­ments and de­scribes the con­se­quen­ces for the inter­national peace and security archi­tecture with diffe­rent focal points. For an up-to-date over­view of PRIF's state­ment, blog posts and media acti­vities on the topic, please visit the Ukraine topic page.
