In the second year of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine, there is no end in sight to the violence and the global repercussions are becoming increasingly apparent. The European NATO states should prepare for long-term support for Ukraine. This is the assessment of Germany's leading peace and conflict research institutes in their Peace Report 2023 presented today. The institutes also recommend sanctioning the Wagner Group, expanding multilateral arms control and strengthening unstable societies in the Global South. The Peace Report 2023, entitled "Still a long way from peace", presents clear recommendations for German policy after the "turn of the times".
