Global military spending is increasing, and America, China and Russia are in the forefront. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said on Monday that global military spending reached a new high, rising in 2022 by 3.7%, adjusted for inflation, to $2.24 trillion. The Russian-Ukrainian war cast a shadow over these numbers. Europe saw the highest increase in 30 years, given concerns that Russia poses a greater threat to other countries as well, according to German news agency DPA. At the global level, the countries of the world continued to spend more money on the army compared to the previous year for the eighth year in a row, while researchers expect this trend to continue in the coming years in light of the current security situation. The United States still leads the spending clearly, followed by China, then Russia, which jumped from fifth to third place because of the war. Ukraine recorded a whopping 640% increase, jumping to 11th place, up from 36th in the previous year, while Germany remains in 7th place after an increase of 2.3%. According to the German news agency, the "SIPRI" report is the most comprehensive set of data on military spending by countries in the world, and researchers included spending on personnel, military aid, and military research and development in the report.

The Stockholm International Institute said that global military spending continued to rise in the year of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. It rose to $2.24 trillion, with the United States leading the way, then China, then Russia.
