The situation on the ground has never been more dangerous, and although many say that there will not be a direct conflict between NATO and Russia, in the last few days, the great influence of the USA on the Ukrainian military has been noticed

The risk of a direct conflict between Russia and NATO is zero, because the North Atlantic Alliance will never attack Moscow, said former US Deputy Secretary of State for Arms Control and former Deputy Secretary General of NATO Rose Getemiller, but is it really true? The Russian aggresion on Ukraine causes concern, although, she added, as far as NATO is concerned, "it is a defensive alliance that will never act aggressively, attack Russia." In addition, Getemiler emphasized that the United States of America deployed nuclear weapons on the territory of European countries in order to deter those countries from designing their own nuclear weapons and reduce the risks of their proliferation.

"This mission stems from the negotiations on the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons from the 1960s, when the USSR was very concerned about the NATO countries, especially Germany, which were designing and deploying their nuclear weapons program," she reminded.

Getemiller also added that from the point of view of the US and its NATO allies, the NPT is a non-proliferation treaty in Europe, as it prevented many NATO allies from acquiring and deploying nuclear weapons. In April, the International Campaign for the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons announced that NATO members were violating the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons by deploying weapons in Poland.

Earlier, the organization appealed to America to withdraw its weapons from Europe, because the practice of nuclear exchange is dangerous and increases the risk of escalation. According to their data, USA has about 150 nuclear bombs, distributed among American air bases in Germany, Italy, Holland, Belgium and Turkey, without any official announcements.

The agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons (from 1968, valid since 1970) stipulates that only five countries (America, USSR, Great Britain, France and China) can possess nuclear weapons and it prohibits the emergence of new nuclear states, reports Russian agency Sputnik.

The "Nuclear Five" undertook not to hand over nuclear weapons to other countries and not to assist in their creation, and the other participants in the agreement not to accept or produce a nuclear bomb.

Ukrainians are attacking Russia directly

In the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian army fired about 100 grenades on the territory of the Belgorod region, as a result of which one man was killed and another was injured, the governor of that region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, said today on the Telegram channel.
According to him, on June 3, 93 shells were fired in eight districts of the region, seven explosive devices were thrown from drones, and 34 drone attacks were also recorded, reports Ria Novosti.

In the Belgorod region, 12 kamikaze drones and five explosive devices were fired at 16 settlements. As of April 11, 2022, a high (yellow) terrorist threat level has been established throughout Belgorod Oblast. The need for it was caused by the worsening of the situation on the Ukrainian-Russian border and the increased activity of the Ukrainian army in the border areas.

American drones in the zone of action in Crimea

The American intelligence drone "RQ-4B Global Hawk", which took off from Sicily, is flying over the neutral waters of the Black Sea not far from Crimea, according to social networks.

At one point he disappeared from "Flytradar", but soon reappeared. Currently, about 5,500 people follow the site to see where the drone is, according to Russian media. Ukrainian missile forces carried out successful strikes on a ferry crossing in the temporarily occupied Crimea and an oil terminal in the Krasnodar region in Russia, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced on Facebook.

"The air force and missile forces and artillery of the Defense Forces of Ukraine hit during the past day five areas of human concentration, four anti-aircraft vehicles, one artillery vehicle and two ammunition depots of the Russians," the message states.

The USA is preparing for "coming to Europe"

NATO is preparing several land corridors through which American troops and equipment could quickly reach the front in Europe in the event of a conflict with Russia, writes the British Telegraph, citing sources.

The paper states that American soldiers would arrive in Europe via one of five European ports, from where they would move along pre-planned logistical routes. Existing plans call for American troops to land in Dutch ports before boarding trains that would take them across Germany to Poland.

In that case, American soldiers would be sent to the port of Rotterdam before being transported to the east, writes the Telegraph. As stated, it is also planned to hire ports in Italy, Greece and Turkey. The head of NATO's logistics command, Aleksandar Solfrank, told Telegraf that when analyzing the Russian war in Ukraine, it can be seen that Russia attacked Ukrainian logistics bases.

"It must lead to the conclusion that it is clear that huge logistics bases as we know them from Afghanistan and Iraq are no longer possible because they will be attacked and destroyed very early in the conflict," Solfrank said.
