"Low or Medium": NATO Commander-in-Chief in Europe assessed the likelihood of a Russian invasion of Ukraine

63

NATO assessed the likelihood of a Russian "attack" on Ukraine and the resumption of hostilities as low. This was announced by General Tod Walters, Commander-in-Chief of the Allied NATO Armed Forces in Europe.


The NATO commander-in-chief spoke in the US Congress, where, answering a question in the House Armed Services Committee, he stated that there is a low or medium likelihood of a Russian attack on Ukraine in the coming weeks. Thus, he commented on the statement that appeared on the eve of the CIA that Russia has concentrated on the Ukrainian borders forces that could become the basis for an attack.

According to American intelligence, up to 40 thousand Russian troops are concentrated on the western borders of Russia, according to Kiev - up to 90 thousand.

In turn, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba is sure that in the event of an offensive by the Russian army, Kiev immediately received help from "some partners." According to him, the assistance will consist of supplies weapons, providing technology and intelligence. Kuleba warned that as soon as Russia crosses the Ukrainian border, "there will be consequences" for it.

Against this background, President of Ukraine Zelensky again announced the need for Ukraine to join NATO, since, according to him, this is "the only way" to end the escalation in Donbass. According to Zelensky, Ukraine has long earned a place in the alliance, especially since a number of NATO countries support "this aspiration." As an example, he cited Turkey, whose leader Erdogan allegedly supported the admission of Ukraine to the alliance.

        Not often, but AS A RULE, the military is more adequate than any politicians, because they risk their own skin, unlike politicians, who often do not matter what they grind, just to please the electorate.
        The likelihood of a Russian attack on Ukraine is close to zero - this could have been understood since 2015.

      But I agree with Kuleba. Indeed, there will be "consequences" for Russia - it will be necessary to cleanse the nationalists, "involve in peaceful labor" the disbanded army, detain and judge all the "uncommanded", starting with Turchinov and Poroshenko, and ending with Ze and the team. And Russia needs it? Therefore, it does not introduce troops.

    According to Zelensky, Ukraine has long earned a place in the alliance, especially since a number of NATO countries support "this aspiration." As an example, he cited Turkey, whose leader Erdogan allegedly supported the admission of Ukraine to the alliance.
    They "support the desire" to shift Ukraine's problems onto the strong, masculine or tolerant shoulders of the NATO member states. Erdogan, of course, will support Ukraine's aspirations so that in the future it would be easier for Turkey itself to use NATO as a lever of pressure on the great Ukraine, with the aim of total dominance in the Black Sea basin, because Erdogan and his associates dream of restoring the Turkic cohonate, sly ones. fellow laughing

    The Ukrainian "elite" and the Nazis are pissing at the ceiling from the promised help and assurances of solidarity. Now let's imagine for the shogunda that Russia was forced to intervene and take measures to enforce peace. The question is how, when and where will the military aid go? To Western Ukraine on the checkpoints, tk. the sky in this case will definitely be closed by Russia, and a blow will be struck at the airfields.
