Russia is a great power with rich historygreat people. But she respects only power. And if our bloc (NATO) does not demonstrate this, unity and decisive actions, then for our part we will only indulge in aggression.
Next, Hodges called those actions that "Russia applies" against NATO:
"disinformation, hybrid warfare, the preservation of the nuclear threat, cyber-terrorist attacks, a pretext for the protection of the Russian-speaking in the Baltic States, Poland."
That is, NATO, according to the logic of Hodges, is already almost a victim of Russia. This is despite the fact that NATO is deploying units and infrastructure a few kilometers from the Russian borders, while continuing to expand.
This pretext, the protection of the Russian-speaking, they may try to use for the invasion and in your country, as well as in the Baltic countries. We must show them (Russia) that we are ready for decisive measures. We must move to relations with Russia that we had during the Cold War.
