Speaking at an event in London this week, the Chief of the British Armed Forces, Admiral Tony Radakin, said that `the unavoidable truth is that any Russian attack or incursion against NATO would

He said that `the biggest reason why (Russian President Vladimir) Putin does not want conflict with NATO is because Russia will lose and lose quickly`.

Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine has raised new security concerns across Europe, forcing countries to spend more on defense and establish more security agreements with each other.

Some leaders have warned Russia could attack another European country in the next few years following its military campaign in Ukraine.

`Britain is not on the brink of war with Russia. We will not be invaded,` Mr. Radakin said.

However, he added, `that does not mean Britain cannot face attacks`.

`We still work every day in the field of cyber security. We are exposed to random attacks in space, attacks on underwater cables and violations of aviation and maritime sovereignty.`

However, Mr. Radakin believes that Russia will quickly be defeated by NATO forces if it attacks a member country of the bloc.

According to the military alliance agreement, an attack on one NATO member country is considered an attack on all the remaining countries.

He said that the thousands of allied soldiers stationed in Poland and the Baltic countries could constitute `three and a half million soldiers across the alliance for reinforcement`.

`In addition, NATO has an additional strategic advantage with a population of more than one billion people. And most of all, NATO as a nuclear alliance,` he said.

Admiral Radakin said that Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine had shown Moscow to be `significantly weaker than we expected`.

`Their Air Force failed to gain control of the air. Their Navy saw 25% of ships in the Black Sea sunk or damaged by a country with no navy,` Do

He added that the Russian army had `lost nearly 3,000 tanks, nearly 1,500 artillery pieces and more than 5,000 armored fighting vehicles.`

However, he commented that `NATO is having to deal with a more dangerous Russia.`

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said on February 26 that some NATO countries and the European Union (EU) are considering sending troops to Ukraine as the Russia-Ukraine conflict has entered its third year. French President Emmanuel Macron said

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Senate Konstantin Kosachev warned that the approach shown by the French leader risks turning the situation into a `tragedy`.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the move would cause direct conflict between the US-led bloc and Russia.
