The Hague. The head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) said Russian military power should not be underestimated after the weekend uprising against Russia by fighters of the ‘Wagner’ group. The NATO chief said the alliance has increased its preparedness to counter Russia in recent days.
NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said when leaders of NATO member states meet in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius on July 11-12, the alliance could decide how to further increase its strength and preparedness to confront Russia and its ally Belarus. Therefore, Russia or Belarus should have no doubt about our ability to defend our allies against any potential threat,” Stoltenberg said on Tuesday.
At a meeting of eight leaders of NATO member states in The Hague, Lithuania’s President Gitanas Nauseda said that if the “Wagner” group stationed its serial killers in Belarus, the threat to neighboring countries would increase. Stoltenberg said it was too early to draw any conclusions about what ‘Wagner’ chief Yevgeny Prigozhin and his forces might do and whether they might end up in Belarus.
Leaders of NATO member states have agreed that NATO should increase its forces on the eastern front to prevent Russian President Vladimir Putin from escalating the war against Ukraine in the wake of a short-lived uprising by the ‘Wagner’ boys in Russia at the weekend. Must continue to increase.
