Ukraine, Jens Stoltenberg announces NATO attack: Putin is failing

Jens Stoltenberg on the war in Ukraine. The NATO Secretary General reveals the real consistency of the attacks on the Kremlin and says that they are proof of the difficulties that the Putin regime faces. He then explains that the Atlantic Alliance will not allow new attacks on the strategic energy and communication networks of Western countries.

Russian President Vladimir Putin “is failing in Ukraine. The attempts to annex “some provinces”, the partial mobilization “of the reservists and the” unbridled nuclear rhetoric “represent” the most significant escalation since the war “and are nothing more than” the sign that this war is not going as expected » from Moscow. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said this at a press conference in Brussels on the eve of the Atlantic Alliance defense ministerial meeting. «What we have seen – he continues – is a sign of weakness. They are losing on the battlefield”, have no “alternatives” and therefore respond with indiscriminate attacks on civilians. They are losing ground and have to resort to launching missiles against civilian targets,” he concludes.

At the defense ministerial, NATO will discuss the “protection of critical infrastructure. We’ve been working on this for years, and after the sabotage of the Nordstream pipelines, we’ve increased our vigilance on every move even further: we’ve doubled our presence in the Baltic and North Sea. Any deliberate attack on allied critical infrastructure would receive a united and determined response.” This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on the eve of the Alliance Defense Ministers’ meeting in Brussels. “Hybrid and cyber attacks can also trigger Article 5”, he continues, noting that NATO already has “guidelines on the protection of critical infrastructure”, such as “submarine cables” and “energy transport infrastructure”.

Then “next week, the NATO will perform a long planned nuclear deterrent, before the invasion of Ukraine. It is a routine formation that happens every year ». NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said this during a press conference before the ministerial meeting. “On Thursday I will preside over a regular meeting of the Nuclear Planning Group – explained Stoltenberg – the goal of NATO’s nuclear deterrent was always preserving peace by discouraging aggression.”
