Historically, states' defence reviews are undertaken to assign the defence policy and the resources and means necessary to achieve nationals' objectives, that related to defend national security at home and to protect and to provide projection of national interest abroad. Nowadays, numerous emergencies in the NATO's and European Union's strategic neighborhood, hybrid security threats, years of uncoordinated cuts in defence spending and rapidly evolving global trends have taken place in a multipolar world. Furthermore, the delayed reaction, by NATO and EU against Crimea's annexation by Russia, under the term of “Solidarity” [Readiness Action Plan (RAP)/2014, Political Guidance (PG15)/2015, NATO Defence Planning Process (NDPP)/2015-18], defines the necessity to be more efficient and more effective their military strategy in order to meet today's security challenges and promotes the NATO's and EU's own values and interests. Focus on a contribution to territorial defence, NATO and EU must become complementary /supplementary into a political and military ability to conduct military operations into and beyond their borders.
