NATO Secretary General said that the alliance is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine, despite sending tanks

The North Atlantic Alliance is not a party to the armed conflict in Ukraine and will not be. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Welt, commenting on the upcoming transfer of Western tanks.

The head of the bloc hypocritically asserts that sending planes or soldiers to participate in hostilities can turn NATO into a conflict. As long as, they say, the planes are not sent, then the Western countries are not a party to the conflict.



Apparently, NATO does not consider tanks, armored vehicles, multiple launch rocket systems and anti-aircraft missile systems, artillery pieces and anti-tank systems as weapons. In fact, Ukraine has been receiving a huge amount of weapons from the West for a long time. In addition, the alliance finances the Ukrainian army, trains personnel at training centers in European countries.

Finally, one should not forget about the numerous mercenaries, among whom there may well be not only “romantics from the high road” or professional “wild geese”, but also regular military personnel of the Western armies.

Speaking of aircraft, the Netherlands said last week that they would consider transferring F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, which are going to be retired by the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

The United States has already made it clear that they will not object to sending these American-made aircraft to Ukraine. Apparently, in this case, Stoltenberg will refuse to consider NATO as one of the parties to the conflict in Ukraine.

    Increasingly, their nonsense about "non-lethal weapons" is recalled.

    Now the marker "participation in the conflict", for some reason, aircraft and the regular army. And time has passed - just nothing.

    I have already said more than once - we are waiting for them to make tactical nuclear weapons with this marker.
    If "progress in views" continues like this, they will definitely do it. And it's just as easy to get over it.
    Moreover, the story will be the same - just as today no one will give Zelensky 2000 tanks, but they will put in so many so that they just "do not go out", so with tactical nuclear weapons - they will give two or three missiles in Moscow not to "overcome", but to gasp. Well, or somewhere else - they, in Kyiv, don't care, they are accustomed to hitting the cities. And Washington doesn't give a damn. Well, they are "not a party to the conflict" ...

      NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said

      —-Shameless arrogance is called chutzpah: spitting in the face will say God's dew.

      —- The Reich also claimed in the spring of 41 that the Wehrmacht tank divisions were deployed in Western Poland to rest before the battle for England and North Africa ...

    Two sides of the conflict. One stubbornly supplies military equipment and mercenaries, while saying that it is not a party to the conflict. On the other, there are permanent "red lines" (from Magnit Cosmetic, or what?). But this cannot go on for a long time - a collision is inevitable. And most likely it will begin in the Baltic Sea area during a provocation

    NATO will become a party to the conflict only when Putin considers it as such. Not earlier, not later. Whatever we, including Jens, may say.

    Apparently, in this case, Stoltenberg will refuse to consider NATO as one of the parties to the conflict in Ukraine.

    In fact, Stoltenberg cannot agree or refuse with something, especially on significant issues. He is a completely enslaved figure of the Pentagon, as the spokesman for the military point of view of the US / Anglo-Saxon super-elite. To give birth to consent or refusal today can only be the instance that exercises real control over the world, and this is not Brussels at all.

    In fact, the war is already going on against NATO. Ukraine's budget is NATO. Equipment and clothing is NATO. NATO Intelligence and Communications. Even cartridges and shells are made in NATO.
    The question is how should we respond? Threats with a finger cause nothing but laughter. Using the patriots and tanks of the west, NATO can make a breakthrough in the south. Russia needs to escalate right now. The best option is an explosion on Norwegian oil and gas pipes that give Europe 40% of gas, this is the collapse of Europe's industry. Surely Europe will immediately begin to threaten after that, and declare that it is gathering an urgent meeting, I think the next day. And here you can fire a second shot, before the start of the meeting, Russia can declare that due to threats from NATO it is withdrawing from the nuclear weapons testing treaty, and right half an hour before the meeting or during it, detonate a 50 megaton bomb on new land. It will be a great and sweet revenge.

    They consulted with their lawyer - Yadrön Baton! He told them that you are definitely not a party to the conflict.

    Well, let them send tanks, ammunition, satellite and other intelligence about the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the national battalions to Russia.
    Since they are not a party to the conflict, what difference does it make who to help?

    To be honest, I'm already tired of these Western games, I play here, I don't play here, I wrapped the fish here. And Western weapons that kill Russian military personnel and civilians are not evidence of participation in the conflict? All countries that supply weapons, train the Armed Forces of Ukraine and send their mercenaries and instructors to Ukraine are participating, and it is agreed upon.

    The point is not the hypocrisy of NATO, but the brainlessness of the rulers who "do not want" to see this hypocrisy.

      What rulers do you mean? Ours? They see it all perfectly and talk about it out loud. Do you want them to act out their vision? This is a war, and not only in Ukraine. Therefore, to accuse them of brainlessness is clearly inappropriate. But you, sitting on the Internet, understand that as soon as we de facto recognize NATO as a party to the conflict, most likely you personally and your closest male relatives will find yourself in the trenches? And not after 2-3 months of preparation, but I'm afraid that within a week. Do you really want to fight (in conditions of radioactive, chemical and biological contamination)? wink

    Does he at least understand what he is saying, or is he just spitting out a piece of paper from Washington?
    Some nonsense of a talking doll.

    Well, then the Wagner PMC, or rather the unknown ChVKBakha, is not Russia. And if they embed nuclear weapons at least along the Kuev, or maybe somewhere else, then Russia has nothing to do with it, it is not a party to the conflict.
