“NATO” strengthens its lines on the eastern front… and Macron presents an emergency plan in anticipation of “global famine”
Yesterday in Brussels, Western leaders united their ranks against Russia, and affirmed their commitment to support Ukraine, during their meeting in three summits held in one day, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Group of Seven summit, and the European summit.
US President Joe Biden stressed the need for the Western parties to remain “united” in the coming months against Russia. Biden warned Russia, saying that Western sanctions “do not constitute a deterrent, but they increase the pain we can inflict on Russia.” He added, “The most important thing is that we remain united, and not lose that after a month or a year from now.”
NATO countries also warned China against supporting Russia militarily and economically, calling on it instead to use its relationship with Moscow to promote peace and end the war in Ukraine.
On the other hand, Moscow took a new step yesterday towards warning of the possible repercussions of a comprehensive “economic war” against Russia, and said that relations with Washington are rapidly heading towards “complete destruction.”
Despite the commitment of the “NATO” countries to support Kyiv, they did not respond to the request of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to obtain “offensive weapons without restrictions”, fearing that this would cause a direct confrontation with Russia.
On the other hand, NATO reinforced its lines on the eastern front, and its Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced the formation of 4 combat units that will be deployed in Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Slovakia.
For his part, French President Emmanuel Macron proposed an emergency plan for food security, in agreement with the Group of Seven, with the aim of dealing with the threat of “starvation” in several countries against the backdrop of the Ukraine war.
