Since 1997, NATO has kept forces out of Eastern Europe. It was a commitment the military alliance made to Russia who was nervous about Western Troops building up on their borders, but now that has all changed and it looks like NATO is readying itself to enter a war few in the West have a desire to enter.
At this week's NATO summit in Madrid, Spain, NATO will determine the largest military deployment since the Cold War, El Pais reported.
The summit will feature the 30 allies meeting in a state of maximum military alert, calling the invasion of Ukraine to "lead allies to define Russia as a direct threat, while China will be considered a geostrategic challenge," according to the report.
While Russia's attack on Ukraine is certain to dominate a forthcoming NATO summit in Madrid, Spain and different member nations are quietly pushing the Western alliance to consider how mercenaries aligned with Russian President Vladimir Putin are spreading Moscow's influence to Africa.
