Russian President Vladimir Putin will convene an emergency summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) on Friday to discuss the commencement of a full-scale invasion in Ukraine. According to the AFP news agency, following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to launch an assault on Ukraine last week, NATO members hastened to shore up their eastern flank. On the other hand, the partners were sure that they would not become militarily engaged’ in Ukraine, which is not yet a member of the alliance.
NATO launched its fast reaction force for the first time last week in response to the invasion, bolstering defenses for the first time in the organization’s history. According to a joint statement, “We have activated NATO’s defense preparations to prepare ourselves to react to a variety of situations and defend Alliance territory, including by calling on our response forces.”
Despite widespread calls, the United States-led coalition has rejected the notion of implementing a no-fly zone over Ukraine, even though Russian troops have launched a series of bombings against civilian targets in the war-torn nation. Specifically, the alliance said that installing a no-fly zone with Russia might result in a nuclear exchange.
Next, the conclusion of the second round of ceasefire negotiations between Russia and Ukraine in Belarus on Thursday, the NATO conference took place the following day. Both nations exchanged views on military and humanitarian matters, and a possible political conclusion to the war is now in progress. Humanitarian corridors to evacuate people have been agreed upon by both Moscow and Kyiv, and a potential temporary truce in the regions where the evacuation is taking place.
Over 750 civilians have died so far in the conflict in Ukraine, which is becoming more and more violent with each passing day. However, the official death toll might be far higher. According to the United Nations, up to one million people have left the nation so far, with the figure expected to rise to four million shortly.
Despite Moscow’s claim that it has suffered 498 dead and more than 1,500 soldiers have been injured, Kyiv estimates that the number of Russian soldiers who have been killed in the conflict is in the thousands.
