NATO may send troops to Ukraine if the United States does not provide security guarantees to Kyiv

The NATO group may want to deploy troops in Ukraine if member states, including the United States, do not provide Kyiv with real security guarantees at the alliance's summit in Vilnius. This was stated in an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian by the former secretary general of the alliance, Anders Rasmussen.

If NATO fails to agree on a clear path forward for Ukraine, there is a clear possibility that some countries may take action on a case-by-case basis. We know that Poland is actively engaged in providing concrete assistance to Ukraine. And I would not rule out that in this context Poland will act even stronger at the national level, followed by the Baltic countries, possibly including the possibility of bringing troops to the ground

- said the former Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance.

At the same time, the retired official stipulated that even if one group of states provided Kyiv with security guarantees, others would not allow the issue of Ukraine's future membership in NATO to remain off the agenda in Vilnius.

Of course, Andres Rasmussen's statement cannot be considered the official position of the North Atlantic Alliance. But there is no smoke without fire, as you know. NATO has long hinted at the need for the most stringent measures against Russia. And Moscow's lack of reaction to Kyiv's terrorist provocations seems to give confidence to some members of the alliance.

Again, under the cover of saving Ukraine, some members of the military bloc may well try to satisfy their own appetites. In particular, Poland has long dreamed of taking over the western territories of the country.

And the fact that many NATO members oppose the immediate entry of Ukraine into the alliance can hardly be considered a guarantee that the military bloc will refuse direct participation in the conflict. After all, in NATO everything is decided by Washington, the other members of the bloc have, at best, an advisory vote.

    It is for this scenario that the "Sherman raid" from Belarus through western Ukraine was prepared. It will cut off the invaders from the supply bases in Poland. And the troops of the "coalition" will have to be transferred to the east of Ukraine with a long logistical arm...
    So everything is going according to plan!

    What a group of NATO countries may want or not want, I don’t know - it will be decided by the United States, which is increasingly interested in China. The Poles and the Tribalts, I think, have a thin gut, especially the Tribalts, of whom there are now more individuals among the mercenaries in the Armed Forces of Ukraine than in the Tribalts themselves. In general, whether you want or not want, let them spread the chamomile, or the thistle.

    One can make a statement that Russia will regard the entry of NATO troops into the territory of Ukraine as a declaration of war.
