The current state of Russia's relations with the West raises grave concerns, which is why it is necessary to revive prevention mechanisms of the Cold War period. Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General said that as quoted by the UN press service.  

'During the Cold War, there were two super-countries, which enjoyed full control in respective parts of the world. Today, we've got some more relatively independent sides, which play major roles in conflicts, too. The world is coming to a situation similar to what prevailed during the Cold War. But now it is even riskier because unlike then there are no mechanisms in place to prevent tensions rising and there are now several actors instead of just two superpowers', he said.

According to Guterres, it's high time to re-instate there preventative mechanisms, which would 'guarantee an effective communication and deter any escalation of conflict'.
