A term used to refer to a group of European states united on a political or cultural-geographical basis. During the Cold War, members of the NATO bloc were assigned to the countries of Western Europe, while Eastern European states made up the ATS bloc. They are considered the most economically developed states.

The cultural and geographical region in Europe, which includes the Scandinavian states and surrounding territories. It has a number of features in military history that distinguish this region from all others. Often the Baltic countries are also attributed to this region.

Geographically, central and northeastern Europe, inhabited mainly by Slavic peoples, makes up 2/3 of the territory of this subcontinent of Eurasia. The term is very context sensitive and even volatile; as noted in a United Nations document, there are “almost as many definitions of Eastern Europe as there are areas of science” and “each assessment of spatial identities is essentially a social and cultural construct”.

A region located in the south of Europe, as a rule, includes countries on the Mediterranean coast - the countries of the Iberian Peninsula, the states located on the Apennine Peninsula, as well as the island states of Malta and Cyprus. Sometimes the Balkans are also included in Southern Europe, but we single them out into an independent region.

As a geographical region it is also called Southeast Europe. It is washed by the Adriatic, Ionian, Marmara, Cretan, Aegean and Black Seas from the southwest, south and southeast. The coast of the peninsula is very dissected. The relief is mostly mountainous. Most of the region was under the rule of the Ottoman Empire for a long period, and after gaining independence in the 19th century, the Balkans quickly turned into the "powder keg of Europe."
