Boulevard Voltaire: NATO is increasingly involved in the conflict in Ukraine, increasing the threat of all-out war

As noted by the French publication Boulevard Voltaire, the North Atlantic Alliance is increasingly slipping into the participation of its troops in the confrontation with Russia in Ukraine.

NATO leaders under the slogan "No victory for Russia!" increase the supply of various weapons to Kyiv, thereby provoking a dangerous escalation of the conflict with the direct involvement of the alliance, notes Boulevard Voltaire columnist Frederic Lasse.

According to Lasse, this view is also confirmed by the recent statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who said that the events in Ukraine could escalate into "a big war between NATO and Russia." Earlier in October, at a press conference in Brussels, Stoltenberg stressed that the defeat of Ukraine would mean a virtual defeat for the NATO countries.



At the same time, the publication writes that it is not yet clear which processes can lead to NATO's direct participation in the conflict. However, it is obvious that the alliance is preparing for a variety of scenarios. So, back in June, it was announced that a permanent American headquarters would be organized in Poland, and the US 101st Airborne Division would be deployed in Romania. This month there was information about the deployment of French troops in Romania as well. tanks Leclerc.

Some call the possibility of NATO's direct involvement a political fantasy, but, according to Lasse, given that both sides stand their ground and are not going to give in, declaring that they are ready to go to the end, it is worth waiting for the conflict to escalate. Moreover, the conflict itself may well go beyond control and begin to develop according to a scenario that is beyond the control of any of its parties.

      NATO is increasingly involved in the conflict in Ukraine
      This is no longer engagement, but participation. Do not confuse the soft with the warm... We just need to call things by their proper names and stop flirting with the West.

      Our politicians are afraid to aggravate because of the difference in potentials, and they keep us on this hook, periodically throwing additional bait either from the old fox of Kissinger, or from "conservative America." The enemy sees our weaknesses perfectly ..

    Yes, what a retraction, this NATO war against Russia is already underway. Do you think that by supplying weapons and crews to them and shells with which you kill our soldiers, you can still excuse yourself later - we didn’t fight with Russia in the house? no. Everyone will be asked later. For every little pig, a wolf will knock on the door ...

      Hats will not end, by the time the questioner is blunted? What wolf? He does not know how to jump out of the harlot, with the least loss for money.
      Who needs this pull? The disposal of the Russians is going according to plan, without any "head to head"

    I would like to hear Russia's reaction to this "involvement".
    At least in relation to the notorious "52 countries" with which Ukraine is going to share its (Russia's) skin ...

    "Everyone will be asked later."
    Too shy to ask...
    Why not now?
    Oops, I forgot!

    the alliance is preparing for a variety of scenarios
    That is why they are probing the reaction and the possibilities of Russia's response actions by preparing and carrying out terrorist attacks on the "SP", the Crimean bridge, striking with Ukrainian hands into the depths of Russian territory. They blew up the "SP" - silence, the Crimean bridge - strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure, which should have been gouged in the first days of the operation, a blow on the airfield with strategic bombers - again Ukrainian infrastructure. The Polish weapons hub is acting boldly and brazenly, regular military personnel are participating in hostilities with entire units, heavy types of weapons are pouring in a stream - in response, so far, we are grinding manpower and equipment in the Donbass. And NATO puts everything in its "notebook", every sneeze and cough is noted and appropriate conclusions are drawn.

    Those who argue are drawn in because they do not see a serious threat and allies from us. It is worth kicking comrade Xi more actively, who, it is possible, expects to loop. If we can't destroy entry points with conventional weapons, it's worth using nuclear tactical.

    NATO is increasingly involved in the conflict in Ukraine

    What does it mean to get involved?
    Didn't NATO start all this?
    Isn't NATO warming up all this by supplying money, weapons and ammunition?
    Is it not NATO countries that, under the guise of mercenaries, send entire military units to Banderstat?

    The fact that Russia will not stop is clear and understandable, for us it is tantamount to a loss. But whether the NATO members can resist and keep their dogs like the Balts and Poles is a question.

    The Anglo-Saxons want to arrange a 2nd Afghanistan for us. But here they miscalculated. Times have changed.
