Russia continues to plan full-scale invasion of Ukraine – NATO Secretary General
According to the NATO Secretary General, an increasing number of Russian troops are moving out of their camps and are ready to attack.
The Russian Federation continues to escalate the conflict along the Ukrainian border, indicating that Russia continues to plan a full-scale invasion.
This was announced by the Secretary General of the Alliance Jens Stoltenberg following an emergency meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission.
“Everything indicates that Russia continues to plan a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. We see a military buildup. They promised to take a step back, but continued to build up. We see more troops moving out of their camps, in combat formations and ready to strike “ , Stoltenberg said.
Recall that due to the aggravation of the situation, NATO convenes on Tuesday, February 22, an urgent meeting with representatives of Ukraine. This decision was preceded by the fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 21 announced the recognition of the alleged independence of the self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR”. He also signed relevant decrees and agreements on friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance between the Russian Federation and the LDNR. In addition, Putin instructed to bring Russian troops into ORDLO, who have been there since 2014.
