SIPRI launched the Ukrainian language translation of SIPRI Yearbook 2015 at an event at the Razumkov Centre (Ukrainian Centre for Economic and Political Studies).

The launch took place on 2 February during the international conference ‘Security Sector Governance: Defence Production, Sales and Acquisitions,’ jointly organized by the Razumkov Centre and the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), and attended by more than 50 participants, including governmental and policy research representatives.

For many policymakers and experts in Ukraine, this translated publication of the SIPRI Yearbook has become one of the most reliable sources of data and analytical information in the area of international security, arms control and non-proliferation. This translation has been possible primarily because of the long-time cooperation between SIPRI and the Razumkov Centre and due to the financial support of the Swiss Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport.

Hard copies of the Ukrainian language Yearbook 2015 are provided for all the relevant ministries and state agencies, as well as for the main Universities and regional public libraries. It is also available in pdf format on the Razumkov Centre website free of charge for Ukrainian readers.

The SIPRI Yearbook is a compendium of cutting-edge information and analysis on developments in armaments, disarmament and international security. Four major Yearbook data sets were pre-launched, covering international arms transfers, military spending, nuclear weapon stockpiles and the global arms industry. The SIPRI Yearbook is published by Oxford University Press. Learn more at Find chapter summaries and sample chapters on the SIPRI website.
