The head of NATO expressed solidarity with Poland

In an interview with an Italian newspaper published on Friday, the head of the Alliance said: “We are deeply concerned about the situation on the border between Poland and Belarus. Similar incidents took place along the border line between Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus.”

Stoltenberg assured that the Pact closely monitors what is happening on the Polish-Belarusian border. “We express our solidarity with Poland and with all NATO members involved in it,” he added.

He then recalled: “The Atlantic Council made a strong declaration condemning the Lukashenka regime for using innocent and weak people as tools for hybrid tactics aimed at putting pressure on neighboring countries.”

“This is cynical and inhumane,” he said.

The Secretary General noted that NATO sent a team of experts to Lithuania when the country had to face the phenomenon of migratory pressure a few weeks ago.

He assured that there is a constant exchange of information in the General Headquarters of the Alliance.

In an interview with an Italian newspaper, he also referred to the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine, saying: “First of all, we collect information and observe what Russia is doing at the Ukrainian border, but also in Crimea, where it has been illegally occupying Ukrainian territory since 2014. NATO allies are in the region and follow the developments. “

What is visible, he explained, is the significantly increased Russian military presence.

Stoltenberg remarked: “I am not speculating on Russian intentions, but I know Russia is capable – and it has shown – to use military force against its neighbors. This happened in Georgia in 2008, in Crimea, and against Ukraine in 2014. and continues with Russia’s support for the separatists in the Donbass. “

The head of the Alliance announced that during his two-day visit to Rome, he spoke with Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi and Defense Minister Lorenzo Guerini on Wednesday about the “very disturbing” situation along the Ukrainian border. “We also analyzed the situation between Poland and Belarus,” he added.

When asked about what NATO is doing, he replied: “In addition to analyzing information, we are giving Ukraine political and practical support; this is training, equipping its forces. The United States has announced that it will provide more ammunition.”

As he noted, British Defense Minister Ben Wallace announced that his country would give Ukraine more support. “Many allies help her in different ways” – he emphasized.

When asked if he considered it sufficient, he replied: “Since the illegal annexation of Crimea, we have made the greatest strengthening of our collective defense in the eastern part of the Alliance by deploying battle-ready battalions in the Baltic States, Poland and strengthening our presence in Romania and the Sea region. Black “.

These are, as he pointed out, responses to “Russia’s aggressive actions”; “defensive, transparent, but show NATO’s determination to defend its allies.”

Stoltenberg also admitted that NATO noted greater Russian activity in the airspace of the Baltic countries.
