Russia & NATO Soldiers Prepare For War, More Enemies, Powerplay Surface

Russia and NATO both claim that they are not out for war unless otherwise provoked, but recent turn of events point out that the level of investment on both sides seems like an actual war will start soon. As NATO continues to gain other allies, Russia pushes to fortify its alliances and forces. Will a World War or Cold War start soon?

NATO and US vs Russia

The United States and Russia have warned one another about dangerous confrontations that happened in a recent series of events. Since the United States is also in allegiance with NATO, the war seemingly looks as if Russia is going up against the two world powers.

Since the annexation of Crimea, relations with the West have degraded, and it does not appear that Russia or the other party will be working more towards any reconciliation if current turn of events are considered.

According to The Washington Post, Russia and NATO are both preparing for war, as seen with their forces. For instance, the Kremlin has been setting up its military in its border. For Western allies, this is an alarming move that merited that deployment of tanks, warplanes and soldiers into an area. In fact, reports indicate that the countries will be committing thousands-most of soldiers.

Since Britain exited the European Union, NATO has become more valuable in terms of keeping the bind together along with the West. However, even as NATO and the U.S. are both looking to fortify defenses against the United States, some analysts say that the Brexit could impact such, because it signaled a political crisis. War is the last thing the EU will need.

“Uncertainty and unpredictability always creates challenges to our security,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

“It is a more unpredictable situation now than before the U.K. decided to leave.”

Serbia is NATO’s New Ally

Nonetheless, should things go awry, NATO may have found another ally through Serbia. While the country is trying to balance out things in light of tensions, it has now become a European Union membership candidate, according to Reuters.

“Serbia cannot entirely turn to NATO, it will maintain the maximum level of cooperation with it, without changing its (membership) status,” Genady Sysoev, Balkan correspondent for Russian newspaper Kommersant.

“Serbia cannot turn to Russia because … no Serbian leadership would risk losing Western investment and aid.”
