With the exception of Poland and the Baltic states, no NATO member sees signs that Moscow is planning a conventional attack, reports the German magazine Die Welt.
The author of the article, Christoph Schiltz, expresses doubts about the need for Alliance exercises in Norway.
According to Schiltz, there are serious differences within NATO regarding Russia. Beyond Poland and the Baltic countries, NATO partners “see no signs that Moscow is planning a conventional attack.”
The Alliance believes that the threat of so-called hybrid warfare is “far more likely” with the use of “cyber weapons, misinformation, and instigators.”
Thus, the author of the article asks: “Why then this joke in Norway with the participation of 50 thousand soldiers and 10 thousand units of equipment?”.
Yeah especially In this age of austerity and hunger!
