The Baltic countries and Poland may send troops to Ukraine if the Russian Federation succeeds, — Spiegel


The Baltic countries and Poland do not rule out the introduction of their troops into Ukraine if the Russian Federation succeeds on the battlefield. This is reported by a German publication Der Spiegel.

According to Spiegel, on the sidelines of the Lennart Mary conference on foreign policy and security policy held in the capital of Estonia last week, parliamentarians of the Baltic countries warned representatives of the German government about the consequences of Berlin's policy regarding the war in Ukraine.

In particular, it refers to the refusal to provide the Ukrainian army with long-range weapons and the prohibition of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to strike the territory of the Russian Federation with Western weapons.

"Their argument is as follows: if the Russians manage to make a strategic breakthrough in the east of Ukraine due to the fact that the West is only half helping Kyiv, the situation may escalate sharply. In this case, the Baltic states and Poland will not wait for the deployment of Russian troops on their borders, Baltic politicians warned — they themselves will send troops to Ukraine. And it was clear what this would mean: NATO would become a party to the war." - says the Spiegel publication.

As Spiegel explains, this is exactly the scenario German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and US President Joe Biden fear.

"Those who want to limit war through excessive restraint actually risk getting it out of control." summarizes Spiegel.
