Le vainqueur : L' Otan dans le monde du XXI-e siecle

Revue defence nationale. 2013. No. 3. P. 69 -75.

This article examines the reasons of existence  of  NATO, the military organization of the period of "Cold war", in modern conditions. NATO is a unique example of military alliance in peacetime. This organization includes the states related in the field of the internal structure and this alliance successesfully finds the balance between the different interests of participants. The failures of the building of European defense policy is one of the main reasons of NATO existance. The states need the organization with  developed institutions and successeful history in terms of  contradictions on the international scene. NATO is a tool of solidarity of western democracies in dealing with the countries of the South and the East. In this terms Russia-NATO relations procced within  the military-strategic field and there is no chance to improve this situation in the short term.
