Ukraine: NATO speaks on full-fledged war against Russia


 

NATO has spoken on the unlikeliness of a full-fledged war with Russia, over President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg said he does not think there will be a full-fledged war between Russia and the alliance.

Stoltenberg spoke to CNN on Thursday, saying that the likelihood of not attacking Russia was due to the unity among NATO countries.

Speaking on reports that Russia is not picking up the deconfliction line, Stoltenberg replied that it was correct, and that the “Russians have not been ready, as I say, to use those lines, but we assume that if there is a need, they will be able to communicate with us.”

Stoltenberg, who was meant to become Norway’s Central Bank chief later this year, is now set to stay on as the head of NATO given the situation in Ukraine.

“I feel privileged for the third time, actually, to extend my term,” he said.

The war in Ukraine has lasted more than many expected it would, with many casualties and destructions recorded already.

Russian forces are still battling to enter major Ukrainian cities, including the capital, Kyiv, where forces of both countries are currently engaging in a serious battle.
