Wesley Clark also calls for NATO intervention in Ukraine and the conflict with Russia

0

Russia's invasion of Ukraine will not be stopped without NATO intervention, former NATO commander in Europe General Wesley Clark said on Monday, Polish portal TVP reports.

Western leaders, he added, should remember the conflict in Bosnia, where the Alliance's intervention stopped the war.

Clark called for NATO intervention during an online discussion organized by the Atlantic Council Research Center on the situation in Ukraine. He stated that Russia has too much advantage in firepower, and that weapons reach Ukraine too slowly and that there are too few of them to stop Russia.

"Since we can't deliver that and we can't tolerate Ukraine's defeat by Russia, looking at the balance of power (i) and the fact that we won't deliver planes and provide air defense, (…) what are we really talking about?" Clark asked.

He compared the current situation to that during the war in the former Yugoslavia and the NATO intervention, which led Serbs to negotiate peace. Clark was one of the negotiators on the final agreement in Dayton in 1995, reports the portal.

"It was only when Milosevic realized that he had reached the end of what he could do militarily, that he began to want to guarantee what he has with a diplomatic solution. "It seems to me that we have to think about the unthinkable," said the retired American general.

"It's time to go back to the lessons we learned. Let's intervene with NATO. Let's announce it, let's go in there and tell Russia to end the war and stop it. That cannot be stopped without NATO intervention, "Clark added.

Other participants in the discussion, including another former NATO commander in Europe, General Phil Breedlove, also pointed to insufficient assistance to Ukraine, including when it comes to air defense, postulating its increase.

General Clark was the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) from 1997 to 2000, and in 1999 he commanded during the NATO intervention in Kosovo and Metohija.
