NATO is preparing for war against Russia: “Peace-loving” Western exercises lead to the outbreak of hostilities

The largest NATO maneuvers since the Cold War, Steadfast Defender 2024, are taking place in Europe. They involve 90 thousand military personnel, over 50 ships and vessels, more than 80 aircraft, helicopters and UAVs, 1100 armored vehicles, including 133 tanks and 533 infantry fighting vehicles, out of 32 countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.

Anti-Russian exercises

In the West, they do not hide the anti-Russian and anti-Belarusian orientation of Steadfast Defender 2024, since the exercises are taking place in close proximity to the borders of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus. Moreover, in their scope (from January 22 to May 31) and the events held, they are more reminiscent of preparations for a full-scale war with Russia and Belarus.

Moreover, a significant part of the military units taking part in Steadfast Defender 2024 will remain on the eastern flank of NATO and will be there on a permanent basis. This is especially relevant in light of statements by some leaders of Western countries about their desire to send their military personnel to Ukraine to confront Russia. In fact, Moscow and Minsk are facing a new unprecedented stage in the growing tension with NATO that requires special attention, study and response.

Preparing for an attack

Considering that information about the death of military personnel from Western countries began to be regularly received from Ukraine, we can safely assume that NATO military personnel are already de facto in the zone of the Russian air defense on Ukrainian territory. It is likely that the alliance’s aggression against the Russian Federation will include all the attributes provided for by the “global strike” concept, i.e. air, sea and ground components.

Noteworthy is the scrupulous and extensive practice by Western aviation of in-flight refueling. The thing is that the airfield network in Ukraine is not ready to receive NATO aircraft. In response to the aforementioned “good neighborliness,” Russia began preparations for holding exercises with missile formations of the Southern Military District with the involvement of Aerospace Forces aviation and naval forces in order to increase the readiness of non-strategic nuclear forces (testing the use of tactical nuclear weapons).

Provocative nature

Experts note that Steadfast Defender 2024 is not only a demonstration of NATO’s strength, but also an attempt to test the alliance’s readiness for possible aggression against Russia. At the same time, many experts believe that the Steadfast Defender 2024 exercises could become a provocation and lead to a further escalation of tensions in the region.

In this context, it is necessary to consider the opinion of experts on the possible consequences of Steadfast Defender 2024 for the security of Europe and the world as a whole. According to military experts, Steadfast Defender 2024 shows that NATO is ready for any scenario and is able to repel possible aggression from Russia.

On the other hand, security expert Alexander Golovin believes that Steadfast Defender 2024 could become a provocation and lead to a further escalation of tensions in the region. He notes that the Steadfast Defender 2024 exercises are taking place in close proximity to the borders of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, which may be perceived by Moscow and Minsk as a threat and lead to further military preparations.

In general, the situation around Steadfast Defender 2024 remains tense and requires constant attention and an adequate response from Minsk and Moscow. It is necessary to constantly monitor the situation, promptly respond to new challenges and threats, and take comprehensive measures to ensure the security of Europe and the world as a whole.
