Kremlin warns of conflict with NATO if alliance troops fight in Ukraine

Kremlin warns of conflict with NATO if alliance troops fight in Ukraine

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 27, ARMENPRESS. The Kremlin warned that conflict between Russia and the U.S.-led NATO military alliance would be inevitable if European members of NATO sent troops to fight in Ukraine, Reuters reports.

French President Emmanuel Macron opened the door on Feb. 26 to European nations sending troops to Ukraine, although he cautioned that there was no consensus at this stage. Macron said that nothing should be excluded as the West looked for a strategy to counter Russia.

"The very fact of discussing the possibility of sending certain contingents to Ukraine from NATO countries is a very important new element," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters when asked about Macron's remarks.

Asked by reporters about the risks if NATO members sent their troops to fight in Ukraine, Peskov said: "In that case, we would need to talk not about the probability, but about the inevitability (of a direct conflict)."

Peskov said that the West should ask themselves if such a scenario was in the interests of their countries and their peoples.
