Globale Verteidigungsbudgets erreichen Rekordhöhe

By Jordi Bou

April 22, 2024 - Militärausgaben sind auf ein Rekordhoch von $2.443 Billiarden gestiegen, der höchste Anstieg an Regierungsausgaben für Waffen in über 10 Jahren.

The 6.8% increase between 2022 and 2023 was the steepest since 2009, pushing spending to the highest recorded by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sipri) in its 60-year history.

SIPRI said Russia raised spending by 24% to an estimated $109 billion. Ukraine increased spending by 51% to $65 billion and received at least $35 billion in military aid from other countries.

For the first time, analysts at the thinktank recorded a rise in military outlay in all five geographical regions: Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Oceania and the Americas.
