NATO to Finalize Classified Strategies for Potential Conflict with Russia

At the Vilnius summit on July 11-12, NATO plans to approve new plans to increase its military presence near Russia’s borders.

According to Reuters, the plans also include increasing the level of coordination between the military departments of member states and the collective leadership of the alliance, as well as increasing the combat readiness of NATO units in anticipation of a possible confrontation with Russia.

At the Vilnius summit, NATO leaders will agree on “thousands of pages of secret military plans” that, for the first time since the Cold War, describe how the alliance plans to respond in the event of a “Russian attack.”

Earlier, the head of the NATO Military Committee, Admiral Robbauer, said that such plans for the alliance open “a new era of collective defense.”

In turn, the commander-in-chief of NATO forces in Europe, General Christopher Cavoli, explained that NATO is actually transforming from an alliance focused on conducting operations outside its direct responsibility area into an alliance preparing to “defend every centimeter of its territory.”

“Our regional plans are aimed at protecting specific regions in NATO. They combine the national defense plans of frontline countries with NATO plans, which should increase the ability to deploy forces at the right time and in the right place,” Cavoli said.

Cavoli did not directly specify which side the alliance intends to oppose “to protect every centimeter of NATO territory,” but the head of the military commission, Admiral Bauer, indicated who NATO’s strengthening in Europe is directed against.

“NATO military services are monitoring Russia’s increasingly aggressive behavior,” Bauer said. “Together we have achieved the most important build-up since the Cold War, but the work is far from complete.”
