NATO's Firm Stand on Russia

The security of Europe lies in the strength and under the umbrella of NATO. That NATO  has taken a firm stand with Russia because of Russia's on going menace in Central and Eastern Europe, should come as a sigh of relief to those NATO members that sit in Putin's cross hairs. NATO yesterday suspended all civilian and military cooperation with Russia. The 28-member Foreign Minister meeting in Brussels did leave open a line of communication with Russia at the ambassador level, but the firm stance by the western alliance in suspending cooperation with Russia, should put the Kremlin on notice that there could be no "business as usual." While Russia claims to be moving back its troops from Ukraine's borders, NATO has said it sees no return to barracks of the some 35,000 to 40,000 Russian troops  amassed at Ukraine's borders. Not leaving matters to chance, the US has deployed F 15s and F 16s planes to Poland and the Baltic to reassure allies in the region; and NATO has reaffirmed that it is "considering all options" with regards to Russia. A spike in Russian military aircraft near Bulgaria's aerial border on the Black Sea has forced Bulgaria to put its air force on high alert which has seen the deployment of jets 30 times in two months. NATO's Supreme Military commander, Philip Breedlove, has been ordered to devise plans to demonstrate  visible assurances to alliance countries in Central and Eastern Europe. Russia will probably withdraw some troops from the border with Ukraine, and then seek more talks, as Putin contemplates his next move to confuse and to destabilize Central and Eastern Europe.
