NATO exposes its great fear in war
After calling the Ukrainian government “neo-Nazis,” Russia accused Ukraine of own biological laboratories financed by the United States for the development of biological weapons. But now the ball falls on the other court after this Friday the deputy deputy secretary general for NATO diplomacy, Carmen Romero, has expressed the NATO’s fear of Russia using biological and chemical weapons in the invasion of Ukraine.
At the same time, Romero has ruled out that at this time there are signs of a nuclear threat. “Our fear is that Russia will fabricate a pretexta flag operation to say that Ukraine has used biological and chemical weapons”, Romero pointed out in The sixth.
However, he has recognized that the West is in an “unpredictable situation. For this reason, Romero believes that it is “very important” to tell Putin not to “not even think about” using nuclear weapons and demonstrate the “unity” of the Atlantic Alliance with the deterrence policies in Ukraine.
NATO’s role in the conflict
Although Romero believes that Russia will not try to invade Poland because it belongs to NATO, he does fear the “vulnerable” position of other countries such as Moldova and Georgia. Russia is aware of the danger of attacking a NATO member state (if this happens, the Kremlin would have “thirty countries behind it,” according to Romero herself). Hence his refusal for neighboring countries to join the Alliance.
For example, the Russian ambassador to Bosnia Herzegovina, Igor Kalbukhov, warned this Thursday that Moscow reserves an answer in case the Balkan country (Bosnia) decides to join NATO, something that Sarajevo condemned as a “clear threat”. One of the biggest points of disagreement between Russia and Ukraine is that the latter wants to join NATO, something Moscow strongly rejects.
But for Romero, the idea of Ukraine joining NATO is an excuse” by Putin, a president who has “never” accepted that countries that were part of the Soviet Union approach a security alliance. Regarding Ukraine’s possible accession to NATO, Romero stated that when the war began it was not planned that he would enter the Alliance “immediately” because you have to meet requirements and carry out internal reforms. “I was not going to enter NATO in the medium term,” she insisted.
The war in Ukraine will be “a long conflict”
If the war continues it is because there is no agreement between Moscow and kyiv. Putin’s demands are disproportionate for Ukraine, which has not yet yielded, and despite the fact that Oleksiy Arestovich, adviser to the President of Ukraine, pointed out that the end of the conflict could come in May, the scenario is not so positive. Romero herself has explained in Public mirror that the conflict is going to spread: “We have to be prepared for a long conflict. Russia has no intention of de-escalation, continues to regroup military forces and even transfers troops deployed in other countries to Russia on their way to Ukraine.
“There is no sign that tells us that Putin is going to end this conflict as soon as possible”, explained the deputy deputy secretary of NATO. In addition, Romero has ensured that the Alliance “He’s going to keep increasing his pressure” towards Russia and has stressed the importance of the NATO summit next Thursday and the summit between the United States and the European Union to be held on the same day, March 24.
