Ukraine is currently not only able to turn to NATO for support , but is also capable of helping the Alliance itself.

This was stated on the air of the Dom TV channel by a military expert, director of the International Center for Countering Russian Propaganda Yuri Kochevenko.

According to him, the army of Ukraine today is one of the strongest and largest in number in Europe.

“Many NATO countries have relaxed to a certain extent, and are saving on weapons. Why, if there is the United States, is there a large NATO” umbrella “? Of our neighbors, only the Armed Forces of Poland are objective; army – 250 thousand. And the forces of other countries – much less, “- said the expert.

He added that such a force as the Ukrainian army cannot be ignored. The experience of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, says Kochevenko, is already being studied by officers from the USA, Germany and Lithuania. At the same time, the expert stressed that today there is no better model for ensuring the security of a democratic state than NATO.

“And we can already go to NATO not only for protection, but also offering our help, offering our shield … And, of course, this causes hysteria in Moscow, especially when it comes with our Georgian partners,” said Kochevenko , citing the example of the Georgian Armed Forces along with the Ukrainian ones.

Such consolidation cannot but worry the Kremlin.

“Both Ukraine and Georgia in NATO are a nightmare for Russia. Not because it creates some kind of military threat. After all, Estonia has been a NATO member for many years. for minutes, but for seconds. But everything is fine there. And here we will just answer toughly, “Kochevenko summed up.

  • Very true. Sadly the article forgets to mention Scandinavia’s Air Power. Only the United States has more nuclear capable F-35 fighters. What Ukraine is on the ground, we are in the sky.

    • I think Vladolf is more worried about Ukraine than he is about the jellyfish in NATO. Besides, they have to have a meeting to have a meeting and anyone that didn’t like their sandwich can veto the whole fucking thing….

      • It’s more like:

        We have to have a meeting to decide when to have the meeting that will decide what we will talk about.
        Then a meeting to decide what we will decide on.
        Then a meeting to decide what we will do.
        Then a meeting to decide how we will implement what we decided.
        Then a meeting to decide when we will implement.
        Then a meeting to decide what resources each will provide to implement what we decided.
        Then a meeting to decide why implementation failed.
        Then a meeting to search for the guilty.
        Then a meeting on how we will punish the innocent.
        Then a meeting to praise the uninvolved for their efforts.

        Then we will start over again.
