NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has released a warning that Russia could attack other nations if Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is successful.
Stoltenberg, while referring to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, said that, “If Russia wins this war, Putin will have confirmation that violence works. Then other neighbouring nations may be next.”
The NATO Secretary-General has emphasized the significance of favouring Ukraine during a speech at a summer camp for the youth of the Norwegian Labour Party, held on the island of Utoya, near Oslo.
He asserted, “A world where Putin gets his way by using military force is also a more dangerous world for us.”
While describing the current state of the conflict as a “brutal and bloody war of attrition”, Ukraine is preparing for a counter-offensive in the south of the nation.
The NATO Secretary General also warned Norway of the increased threat posed by Russia to the Atlantic Alliance, given the war in Ukraine, near Norway’s eastern borders.
A former Norwegian Prime Minister (2000-2001, 2005-2013), Stoltenberg also chaired the Labour Youth League, the youth organization affiliated with the Norwegian Labour Party, and attended its summer camp in Utoya.
In 2011, Norwegian neo-Nazi mass killer Anders Behring Breivik carried out a massacre at the camp after putting off a car bomb in Oslo in a double terror attack that left 77 people dead.
