The study has also portrayed the historical, religious, and political differences which are the backbone of the present crisis. Mostly, the research is crafted in a way where analysis is made from numerous perspectives and shows how is it relevant on the basis of knowing the situation in depth. Politics is the key idea here but in the tree of politics, the research represents multifarious roots. Each of the roots is connected to the main topic. Additionally, roots are the light to see the whole picture. Research is also showing how policies are important and how Iran's unyielding position in terms of making policy is helping Iran to dominate the region. As it is a huge study area, more research is needed to understand every particle of that.</p> <p> </p> 2023-04-28T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Hasib Bin Shaharia, S.M.Shawlin Development of regression mathematical models of distortion of the radar information situation with the help of corner reflectors 2023-04-22T22:05:46+03:00 Volodymyr Kotsiuruba Andrey Bogun <p>A 3-D model of corner reflectors of various types and sizes was built on the basis of the analysis of the results of mathematical modeling using the CST Studio automatic decision-making system. As a result of the simulation, the numerical values of the parameters of the effective scattering area were determined, which made it possible to clarify the dependence of the relative change of the effective scattering area of corner reflectors on the shape of the rib, to confirm the hypothesis regarding the quadratic dependence of the effective scattering area on the radiation frequencies. A comparative analysis of the modeling results allowed us to conclude that for different observation angles, the effective scattering area of a small-angle reflector corresponds on average to the effective scattering area of a Mi-8T helicopter. It was also established that large corner reflectors with a rib size of 120 cm are the most appropriate for simulating fighter jets. At the same time, the weight of the corner reflector needs to be significantly reduced, which becomes possible when using light materials, such as foam plastic, which is pasted over with foil of the appropriate thickness. Electrodynamic modeling was confirmed by an experiment in an anechoic chamber. As a direction of further research, conducting experiments on changing the parameters of the effective scattering area of corner reflectors depending on a number of controlled factors was chosen.</p> 2023-04-28T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Volodymyr Kotsiuruba, Andrey Bogun Methods and instruments of credit risk management in banks 2023-04-23T10:27:19+03:00 Violetta Kharabara Ivan Tkach Roman Greshko Volodymyr Kharabara <p>In the article the actuality of the methods of credit risk management system was grounded. The essence of the credit risk was specified, the methods and instruments of management of credit risks were considered as at the level of a separate loan so at the level of created by a bank credit portfolio.</p> 2023-04-28T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Violetta Kharabara, Ivan Tkach, Roman Greshko, Volodymyr Kharabara Enhancing the factor analysis of information risk methodology for assessing cyberresilience in critical infrastructure information systems 2023-04-28T19:54:21+03:00 Volodymyr Shypovskyi <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> is to explore the Factor Analysis of Information Risk methodology as a tool for assessing and managing information risk in critical infrastructure systems, and to identify opportunities for improvement in the methodology. The article also provides an overview of other frameworks and standards that can be used in conjunction with the Factor Analysis of Information Risk methodology to enhance the overall effectiveness of risk management in critical infrastructure systems.</p> <p><strong>Method: </strong>factor analysis and empirical research methods were used in the study.</p> <p><strong>Theoretical implications:</strong> involve potential improvements to the Factor Analysis of Information Risk methodology, contributing to a more comprehensive framework for information risk management in critical infrastructure systems.</p> <p><strong>Practical consequences</strong>: involve the potential for improved risk assessments and risk management in critical infrastructure systems through the refinement and development of the Factor Analysis of Information Risk methodology; by identifying gaps and opportunities for improvement in the methodology and providing an overview of other frameworks and standards that can be used in conjunction with Factor Analysis of Information Risk, this article can inform the development of more effective risk management policies and practices; the article may also encourage the use of Factor Analysis of Information Risk and other frameworks and standards in critical infrastructure systems to enhance their security and resilience against potential cyber threats.</p> 2023-04-28T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Volodymyr Shypovskyi Closer than a neighbor (Ukrainian-Polish relations) 2023-05-28T18:17:55+03:00 Igor Khraban Volodymyr Basanets Mariia Rafalska <p>The article examines Poland’s relations with Russia and Ukraine since the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as the efforts of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine to create a security zone from the Baltic to the Black Sea. In the 1990s and early 21st century, Poland introduced a policy of supporting the sovereignty of countries separated from the USSR, including Ukraine (the Orange Revolution) and Georgia. Moscow has always opposed Poland’s policy of supporting independence and developing democracies in countries such as Ukraine or Georgia, and for this reason, relations between Poland and Russia have been tense and conflicting since the early 1990s. The new order in the international environment provided favourable conditions for domestic political changes but created new challenges and threats. It is connected with the full-scale Russian-Ukrainian war that also threatens Poland.</p> <p>Therefore, the content and essence of the history of Ukrainian-Polish relations and their current state in the conditions of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine have been analyzed.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Igor Khraban, Volodymyr Basanets, Mariia Rafalska Theoretical basics of the development of the professional competence of higher military education institution faculty and staff 2023-05-28T18:34:05+03:00 Kostyantyn Mamchur <p>Modern views, ideas, and approaches to the development of the professional competence of scientific and pedagogical workers in the context of the application of the competence approach are offered. The theoretical aspect of the application of the Dreyfus model in determining the stages of development of teachers' professional competence is revealed. The potential of models for evaluating the effectiveness of the development of professional competence of teachers, which are most often used in the leading countries of the world, in particular, Kirkpatrick's model, is analyzed.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Kostyantyn Mamchur Military and political decisions as mechanisms of support to Ukraine by partner countries 2023-06-03T12:26:54+03:00 Mykola Sen <p>The international mechanisms and institutional support for Ukraine, which contribute to repelling Russian military aggression, are analysed.</p> 2023-03-31T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mykola Sen
