Former commander of NATO in Europe, Philip Breedlove, called Russia an “existential threat” to the United States, their allies and the entire world order and acknowledged that the allies are ill-prepared for a possible attack
The former commander of the United armed forces of NATO in Europe, US General Philip Breedlove says that Russia should be recognized as a constant global threat.
“Russia is an enduring existential threat to the United States, its allies and the international order,” the general emphasized in the article, which was published in the journal, Foreign Affairs. He also said that Russia is doing all it can to satisfy its ambitions to regain the status of a world power.
All of these conclusions were made by the general after Russian military aircraft simulated attacks on U.S. destroyers in the Baltic sea, and resumed flights of strategic bombers along the coast of the United States.
Thus it indirectly confirms the ambitions of Moscow and their official position on Syria, concludes Breedlove, who considers all the events in the Republic only as an “intervention.” The general acknowledged that the U.S. and its allies are currently insufficiently prepared for an invasion by Russia. In other words, he is hinting at another increase in the military budget.
