PL Central and Eastern Europe is a region between Western and Eastern Europe and Northern andSouthern Europe. These sub-regions are defined in different ways and their delimitation is not consistent.Whatever the approach, the countries that share cultural, historical and political roots should beconsidered when thinking about CEE. Broadly speaking, it is a part of the continent that was a part of theSoviet bloc. This membership, or rather full political and economic subordination or direct territorialsubordination (former Soviet republics), became a common denominator and despite the end of the thirddecade of independence it still remains one of the most important distinguishing features of the subregion.Safety environment is usually a derivative of its time. In this respect, particular attention should bepaid to security challenges and their perception by relevant international political actors. The dynamicchanges that have taken place (NATO and EU expansion, consolidation of NATO’s eastern flankcountries, increase in the alliance’s military presence) cause the knowledge concerning the subregion’ssecurity environment to quickly become outdated.The aim of this article is to present the current conditions of the subregional security environment.Among them, the most important was to define the security dimensions, both in their entirety (regionally)and in detail, referring to the analysis of the most important actors. This serves to get to know andunderstand their particular interests and national security policies.
