NATO plans to carry out in the coming years the largest reconstruction of its defense policy since the Cold War.
The Alliance intends to increase the number of response forces by six times, writes MK. These issues will be considered as early as next week during the summit of the countries of the bloc, which will be held in Madrid.
According to Sky News, these changes occurred against the backdrop of “a military special operation that Russia has been conducting since February 24 on the territory of Ukraine. Russia has effectively forced NATO to rethink its defense concept, Western analysts say.
Sources also say that attention will also be paid in Madrid to Finland and Sweden joining NATO. Earlier, Turkey opposed their inclusion in the bloc.
NATO countries continue to actively support Ukraine by providing weapons and intelligence information. And although Ukraine is not a member of the bloc, the alliance says that they will help Kyiv transfer the Armed Forces of Ukraine to NATO weapons.
