NATO condemns the Russian attack on the nuclear power plant but insists it is not part of the conflict

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg this Friday denounced the Russian attacks on civilians in Ukraine and on the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, undertaken by Russian forces at the time, despite insisting that the military organization was not part of the plan conflict is.

“We condemn the attacks on civilians and saw news of the attack on a nuclear power plant overnight,” Stoltenberg stressed in a statement with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken ahead of the start of the allied foreign ministers meeting in Brussels to discuss the response to the Russian invasion and to discuss the long-term effects of the Kremlin’s actions.

In his opinion, this is another example of the “recklessness” of the Russian invasion of the neighboring country and shows that Moscow must withdraw its troops and choose the path of dialogue.

“We have supported Ukraine, but at the same time we are not part of the conflict, we are a defense alliance and are not aiming for a war with Russia,” said Stoltenberg, ruling out NATO intervention in Ukraine. In any case, he emphasized the plans of the Atlantic Alliance to increase its presence on the eastern flank and thus ensure the defense of the allies.

“We are a defensive alliance and do not seek conflict, but if conflict does arise, we stand ready to defend every inch of allied territory,” Blinken argued.

In this sense, the American politician has emphasized that all members of the alliance “in one way or another” are helping Ukraine to face the “unjustified” offensive of Russia.

NATO countries have doubled their aid to Kyiv by sending arms and agreeing to use their Rapid Response Forces, units mobilized for the first time in a security crisis, to bolster the military organization’s presence on the eastern flank.
