The history of the idea of creating a Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone in Central and Eastern Europe (NWFZ in CEE) dates back to the beginning of the Cold War. Nevertheless, over all these years, the project of formal denuclearization of the region has not been implemented due to unfavorable external circumstances. The goal of this research paper is to analyze the current threats to the nuclear nonproliferation regime in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, as well as to outline the prospects for the long–awaited implementation of the NWFZ in CEE, which can become one of the pillars of the new European security architecture.

Users are given the opportunity to take the test - to answer one of the designated questions. Our today's PIR Test is dedicated to the international document that is considered to be the very first to become the forerunner of the modern arms control system.
