NATO is ready for a direct confrontation with Russia, as the country's aggressive strategic goals go beyond Ukraine.

 According to RTP, as informed by myukraineis.

According to the head of NATO's military committee, Admiral Rob Bauer, Russia is striving to return to the old Soviet Union. For years, it has come to a country with weapons. So NATO must be ready.

"Now we are faced with the threat of Russia. They come to us without invitation at any time. So we must be ready. We do not have time to prepare because it depends on them when they come," Bauer said.

At the same time, he reassured that NATO is ready for a direct confrontation with Russia. However, for this, the North Atlantic alliance must rearm.

He also noted that the industrial production of North Atlantic alliance countries should be reoriented to the military sphere. In his opinion, it makes sense to introduce a "peace-time military economy" to conduct rearmament.

Meanwhile, Bauer emphasized that he does not believe in a nuclear war because Russian President Vladimir Putin is "not crazy."

"I think Vladimir Putin is not crazy, and that's good news. He has ideas that don't match our ideas. But he's not crazy. So he's still a rational person," the admiral said.
