The military invasion of Russia in Ukraine is not the result of the expansion of the North Atlantic Alliance, but is the reason why the expansion of NATO is necessary, said on Friday, on the occasion of the meeting of the Contact Group for the defense of Ukraine, Lloyd Austin, the American Secretary of Defense.
Pentagon chief: Russia’s invasion is not the result of NATO expansion, it is the reason for NATO expansion
Russian President Vladimir Putin “made a series of serious miscalculations by invading Ukraine,” said Lloyd Austin, according to Sky News, during the meeting held at the Ramstein military base in Germany.
Vladimir Putin “believed that Ukraine would not retaliate, but Ukraine remains strong, with the help of its partners. Putin believed that our unity would fracture, but Russia’s brutal war of choice has brought us closer together. I note that Finland, a long-time participant in this Contact Group, is here today as a new NATO member, and I believe Sweden will soon follow. This sends something very clear: Putin’s war of choice is not the result of NATO expansion, it is the cause of NATO expansion,” Lloyd Austin pointed out.
In other news, the head of the Pentagon assured that he treats “extremely seriously” the case of the unauthorized publication of classified documents belonging to the US secret services. “We will continue to work closely with allies and partners, in a spirit of respect and friendship. I discussed this issue with allies and partners, I was moved by their solidarity and commitment. Our unity will not be fractured by anything, we will not be divided Lloyd Austin insisted.
