May 29, 2023

Chief of the Czech General Staff Karel Rzekhka said that there is a possibility of war between Russia and NATO.

This is reported by Novinky.

According to him, preparation and deterrence are important to prevent such a scenario.

"The war between Russia and the North Atlantic Alliance, which is the worst-case scenario for us, is not impossible - it is possible," the Czech Chief of General Staff said.

Rzekhka noted that the country's armed forces are trying to prepare for a potentially intense conflict, as "Russia is now on a trajectory of conflict with the (North Atlantic) Alliance".


"The Czech Republic is a member of NATO, and this brings benefits, but it also imposes certain obligations. Therefore, if a war breaks out, a large number of Czech soldiers will join the fighting in accordance with the Alliance's plans," he added.

Rzechka emphasized that given the experience of the Russian war against Ukraine, it is necessary to strengthen national security and, in particular, to overcome dependence on Russian energy supplies as soon as possible.
