Summary/Abstract: The idea according to which we are now in a new stage of the nuclear arms race has been increasingly accepted, the United States being accused by the Russian Federation that, by building the antimissile shield in Europe, they continue the containment policy that had been applied against the USSR during the Cold War. The truth is that the locations in Europe of the antimissile shield components (Poland, Romania and Turkey) raise many doubts and leave the impression that it is not the defense of the European continent against the medium range missiles from Iran or Afghanistan that matters, but the Eurasian heartland’s containment using the power of the Euro-Atlantic rimland.
