NATO has always warned about Russian aggression, and it appears that things are escalating for the worse. A senior NATO official has warned about looking at Russia in a “black-and-white format,” while thousands of troops are planning to set foot on the Baltic region as a show force to Russia. Will Russia start a new world war?
NATO Warns About Russia
There have been contentions as to whether Russia is really the enemy and whether it intends to invade a number of different territories. Nonetheless, it is important to note that analysts argue that Russia as the enemy could be Western propaganda to justify war.
According to NATO’s Military Committee Chairman Petr Pavel, the alliance should not have a one-sided perception of Russia. Likewise, he urged the organization to proceed with cooperation despite many differences between the two parties.
“We simply cannot talk about and think about Russia in black-and-white format…The fact that we have different foundations with Russia, we have different views on many things, doesn’t mean that we can entirely exclude any cooperation with Russia,” Sputnik quoted Pavel when he spoke to a committee conference in Croatia.
War About to Start?
However, it appears that NATO is intent on making sure Russia will not make a move; it plans to deploy 4,000 troops to the Baltic region by next May to deter its perceived Russian aggression.
“With these four battle groups, we are not talking about exclusively about a training presence,” RT quoted Czech Army Gen. Petr Pavel.
“This force is to serve as a deterrent and if necessary as a fighting force. The rules will be different,” Pavel added. Likewise, the official added that US Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti is set to oversee the deployment.
