Resilience - aspects of crisis competence

The cover photo of this issue shows a Ukrainian soldier in the trench near Bakhmut. The photographers Kostyantin and Vlada Liberov took this and other harrowing pictures of the Ukrainian war. It is emblematic of the Ukrainians’ spirit of resistance.

In this country, too, the Russian attack has changed the threat situation; soldiers in particular have to deal with the possibility of a military or hybrid attack. We take this up and discuss aspects of personal and societal resilience.
