Taking as a point of departure Russia’s declaration on pulling out from the cfe’s Joint Consultative Group of the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty (cfe), the article looks into the reasons behind the demise of European conventional arms control system and the inefficiency of confidence- and security-building measures (csbm). It presents assessment of the utility of arms control and csbm mechanisms during the Ukraine crisis, pointing to their limited effectiveness. Finally, it identifies options for re-introducing arms control and confidence- and security-building measures as important instruments of reducing tensions and increasing military predictability in Europe, including agreeing on effective arms control regime for Eastern Ukraine, strengthening pan-European csbms, declarations of military restraint, and work on legally binding territorial limitations.
