NATO foreign ministers will convene in Brussels for an emergency meeting in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Since Russia began deploying soldiers near Ukraine weeks before the invasion, the allies have been reinforcing their eastern flanks.
Nato has launched its Rapid Response Force for the first time, adding to the hundreds of troops previously committed by allies to its Eastern members.
Despite the fact that NATO has been providing weaponry to Ukraine, up to 22,000 additional troops are being dispatched to member states bordering Russia and Belarus.
The allies, on the other hand, are adamant that they would not intervene militarily in Ukraine’s conflict.
Germany is expanding its arms shipments to Ukraine. According to sources, Berlin has authorized extra assistance for Ukraine and will deliver 2700 anti-aircraft missiles to the combat zone.
Meanwhile, the Dutch are deploying rocket launchers for air defense. Estonians and Latvians have contributed missiles, while the Czech Republic has sent machine guns, snipers, and other weapons.
Even formerly neutral nations, like Sweden and Finland, provide weaponry. There are around 20 nations in all. Currently, the majority of NATO and EU states are supplying armaments to Ukraine.
Western armament has been transported to Ukraine in rather considerable but unknown volumes for the past several days. It has the potential to have an impact if it can be deployed fast.
The plan of Brussels of providing additional munitions and troops risks inciting Russian reaction. Through its backing for Ukraine, Vladimir Putin sees NATO as threatening, if not destroying, Russia.
Putin even activated his own nuclear capabilities to warn Europe and the United States of the potential of involvement.
