The article aims to analyze some of the political problems associated with the location of elements of the US global missile defense system in Europe. It primarily discusses the place of missile defense in the US security strategy, as the United States perceives the military instrument as one of the most important elements of its national security strategy; hence the determination and consistency in its location, as well as all the consequences in the political dimensions being the subject of our interest. In the further part, it shows the current status and prospects of the missile defense program for Europe, including some necessary technical details and organizational issues, as this part of the issue constitutes the second fundamental determinant of the political role of the missile defense in Europe. Finally, it examines the political importance of the missile defense in Europe from the point of view of European security, devoting a special place to the presentation of the role played by it in relations between the West and Russia.
