The Russian attack on Ukraine has brought new themes and narratives of different stakeholders into our security space, too. However, the North Atlantic Alliance is aware of effective tools to cope with the information noise, to counter infodemic and to communicate defence issues, writes PETER DUBÓCZI.

Discussions are underway within the Ukraine Defense Contact Group, which has been established within NATO, on the possibility of resuming the production of artillery ammunition in Slovakia. The ammunition is mainly used by the Soviet-era army systems, which still have a huge advantage in the war in Ukraine. In Slovakia, factories in Snina and Dubnica nad Váhom have the necessary capacities.

The United States and Germany contribute the most to the common budget, equally, covering more than 32 percent of the alliance's costs. However, NATO's common funds represent only 0.3 percent of the total defence spending by the allies.

According to the head of Slovak diplomacy, the victory of Ukraine will guarantee real and long-term peace in Europe. "More military support for Ukraine, more liberated territories and people and more effective sanctions mean better prospects for peace diplomacy in the future," writes RASTISLAV KÁČER.
