Ukraine pleads for rapid NATO entry with Russia on its doorstep

Recommended Posts

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin may have more to discuss with his NATO allies than just whether to extend the mission in Afghanistan, as Ukraine, facing mounting pressure from Russia, reportedly seeks fast-track entry into the alliance. "The days of the United States rolling over in the face of Russia's aggressive actions, interfering with our elections, cyberattacks, poisoning its citizens, are over," Biden said. "We will not hesitate to raise the cost on Russia and defend our vital interest and our people. The U.S. also regularly conducts military exercises with Ukraine, although U.S. European Command confirmed Wednesday that Ukraine will not be part of the DEFENDER-Europe 21 exercises in the region.The exercises are meant to demonstrate a rapid capability to move a high number of troops and equipment to the eastern flank of NATO

It's a Slavic family squabble; let Russia and Ukraine sort it out among themselves. Let the E.U. intervene if they want to.

The Ukrainian military said that a soldier was killed and another seriously wounded in artillery fire from Russia-backed separatist rebels Sunday, as hostilities rise sharply in the country’s east.

As of the reported attack, Ukraine says 27 soldiers have been killed in the east this year, more than half the number who died in all of 2020. Attacks have intensified in recent weeks and Russia has built up troops along the Ukraine border.
