Summary/Abstract: The decisions taken during the NATO summit in Wales will partially fill the security gaps on ATO’s eastern flank. The alliance will be better prepared for a number of traditional and symmetric threats, emanating from Russia, against its members. However, the alliance has o answer for the strategic change caused by annexation of Crimea and possible ismemberment of the rest of Ukraine.
