Lieutenant General of NATO, Jan Brooks, provided a forecast of European developments in armed conflict with Russia. He noted that the member states of the alliance face a number of serious strategic problems.
According to him, members of the military unit have to solve serious problems with the supply of military equipment and soldiers. "I would say that from a military point of view the forces of the troops are not fast enough," the camp news quoted the general. Brooks said that NATO should do a lot of work.
NATO has repeatedly drew attention to the logistical problems that exist in the alliance. Washington plans to deploy military vehicles to Hungary. It is about 50 units of heavy military equipment, including four Abrams tanks.
Earlier, former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen admitted that Russia would win in a couple of days in case of a war with Ukraine.
In May this year, the first Brussels-based Embassy in Russia-NATO was held in Brussels in autumn 2017. Russia and the representatives of allied countries discussed the situation in Ukraine, reducing the risk of confrontation and increasing the transparency of European military practices. The Secretary General of the Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, has repeatedly expressed his interest in relations with the Russian Federation.
It should be noted that the NATO exercises that began on 25 October were the highest in 16 years. The ground forces, air transport and fleet of 29 countries in the Atlantic block are involved. Sweden and Finland have neutralized their quotas. A total of 53,000 soldiers and officers, more than 250 aircraft and helicopters, more than 65 ships and ships, and over 10,000 armored vehicles and vehicles.
