Spiegel: NATO will not be able to fight back in case of an attack from the East
MOSCOW, 21 Feb — RIA Novosti. The Alliance will not be able to make the deployment of troops, if his Eastern European members of the military strike is delivered, says the German newspaper Spiegel, citing caught at her disposal a secret report of NATO.
As the newspaper notes, NATO document entitled “Preliminary report on the strengthening of deterrence and defense capability of the Alliance” calls into question the ability of NATO forces to “act quickly and, if necessary, rationally.”
“NATO’s ability to carry out logistic rapid deployment forces in heavily overgrown areas under the jurisdiction of the European command, has degenerated since the end of the cold war” — quote German mass-media the contents of the document.
The official representative of NATO Oana Lungescu has refused to confirm or deny German editions. However, she stressed that “the Alliance forces are on alert and can redeploy much faster than ever before.”
