In the event of a war between Russia and Ukraine, Washington and NATO will “categorically object, but will not take any measures.” This was stated by retired US Navy Admiral and former commander-in-chief of the North Atlantic Alliance James Stavridis in an article for Bloomberg.
“Ukraine does not fall under the NATO security guarantee “an attack on one is an attack on all,” he explained.
According to Stavridis, in the event of an aggravation of relations, a collision may occur in the Black Sea. He admitted that in a likely war, Russia will use high-speed patrol boats with surface-to-surface and surface-to-surface cruise missiles, helicopters for the transfer of Special Forces from landing ships and diesel submarines.
Stavridis suggested that in this case, Moscow will win a complete victory. At the same time, he noted that NATO troops will not have time to reach the region quickly enough, even if they want.
