NATO: Russian threatening capability may destroy Alliance

Russia creates a high-risk situation for Europe, and hinders NATO's fulfilling its functions, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey said.

Dempsey claimed that, ''threats are the combination, or the aggregate, of capabilities and intentions. Let me set aside for the moment, intentions, because I don't know what Russia intends.''

According to the general, Russia has quite threatening potential in space, cyber space, ground-based cruise missiles, submarines, and other activities aiming at severing communications.

''I do think one of the things that Russia does seem to to do is either discredit, or even more ominously, create the conditions for the failure of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization,'' he said.

Experts claim that Russia and NATO have built up military power in drills they carry out.

ELN analysts also reported that Russia is getting ready to conflict with NATO, while NATO is getting ready to a possible confrontation with Russia.
