80% of Russia’s land forces are now involved in the war in Ukraine
Russia involved 80% of its ground forces in the war in Ukraine, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said at a press conference with the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in Brussels.
“More than 80% of Russia’s land forces are now dedicated to the war in Ukraine. So of course what happens there matters for the total capacity of Russia to pose any threat to any NATO Allied countries. So my first thing, my first message, to Allies is that we welcome the unprecedented support, we are calling for even more support, and we urge them to dig deeper into the inventories, to the stocks, to continue to provide the supplies that Ukraine needs immediately,” Stoltenberg stressed.
According to the NATO Secretary-General, the allies must be prepared for the long term, and therefore the Alliance is in contact with the defense industrial complexes of the member countries.
