"Sunday Times": The situation in Ukraine divided NATO into 3 camps, between hawks, doves and ostriches

The Sunday Times reported that the crisis in Ukraine not only caused divisions among NATO countries, but also led to the division of alliance members into three camps.

According to the British newspaper The Sunday Times: “Three camps within NATO are hawks, doves and ostriches, and hawks include members of the alliance who consider it necessary to achieve the return of Ukrainian control over the territory of Donbass and Crimea and thereby inflict a strong blow on Russia so that in the future it cannot threaten any of the their neighbors.”

The newspaper did not mention the countries that classify them as “hawks”, noting that the “dove” countries are determined to achieve a peace settlement between Russia and Ukraine, and these countries will agree to the withdrawal of Russian troops to their positions before the start of the war. On February 24, leave Crimea as part of Russia and the Donetsk and Luhansk republics.

The newspaper pointed out that “ostrich” countries are countries that are more focused on internal problems and support the documents of the alliance, but are largely looking for the path of least resistance, and the newspaper pointed to the countries of southern Europe in this classification.

The newspaper pointed out that “the countries of the alliance do not agree with the idea of ​​deploying small units of NATO forces in the cities of Western Ukraine, away from the front line, to deter Russian missile attacks.”
