NATO says it will dialogue, but prepares other scenarios

Jens Stoltenberg, secretary general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), noted that the organization "will do its best to find a political avenue" to the concerns expressed by Russia and resolve disagreements through dialogue, but "Faced with the possibility of diplomacy failing," they envision scenarios and will always address the concerns of their allies first.

Stoltenberg argued that the dialogue "must be based on key principles of European security and carried out in consultations with Ukraine."

Moscow NATO meeting. In the midst of tensions reminiscent of the cold war years, the meeting of the NATO-Russia Council is scheduled for this January 12, which seeks to advance mutual security guarantees.

And it is that while the Atlantic alliance argues a possible military invasion of Ukraine that, supposedly, the Kremlin would be weighing up, to deploy militarily very close to the Russian borders. Moscow rejects the accusations and denounces that the expansion of the military bloc towards the east and towards its national borders threatens its security, since “red lines” are being crossed, which are nothing other than the tactical capacity to react to an attack.

In other words, Moscow argues that NATO, by deploying in front of its borders, breaks the balance that allows both military powers to defend themselves on equal terms and is not willing to compromise on that ground.

It is about the flight time of NATO missiles to hit Russian defenses if fired from Ukraine, which would put the Kremlin at a disadvantage, and asks how the White House would react if Russian weapons and troops were deployed on the US borders with Canada or with Mexico.

It is worth noting that in 1962, the so-called “Cuban missile crisis” that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war, was after the deployment of Russian weapons near the United States.
