The leadership of the North Atlantic Alliance believes that, even after Ukraine's victory over the aggression of the Russian Federation, Moscow will continue to pose a long-term threat to NATO and global security, which will require an appropriate response.

This was stated on Friday by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the United Armed Forces of NATO in Europe, the commander of the US Armed Forces in Europe, General Christopher Kavoli, the correspondent of Ukrinform reports.

"Russia will pose a long-term threat to the Alliance. She will be a big problem for us for many years," the general said during a speech at the Atlantic Council in Washington.

He emphasized that Russia is obviously trying to increase the number of its troops and has already announced such plans.

"In order to achieve such goals, it has already increased industrial production, as well as the number of personnel," Cavoli noted.

The commander-in-chief of the NATO forces emphasized that Moscow is trying to restore its losses in Ukraine in order to concentrate the main forces in the western regions of the Russian Federation. They will be led either by the same commanders, or those like them, the general believes. According to him, NATO considers this as a potential large-scale threat on the borders with the Alliance.

"Therefore, I believe that solving this problem, the military problem and all its political, economic and social consequences that will arise from it, will actually be the driving factor for the existence of NATO and global security for many years to come," Cavoli noted.
