Retired Colonel of British Armed Forces considers it possible to send NATO troops to Ukraine

In an interview with TalkTV, the former colonel of the British Army, Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, expressed the opinion that NATO troops could be sent to Ukraine, TASS reports


Hamish de Bretton-Gordon believes that if ‘something goes wrong’ in Ukraine, then NATO may ‘go to war with Russia in the next few years’. “The West has done everything except sending its troops. It is not excluded that NATO members and other countries such as Australia will have to reconsider their position," he added.

In early December, Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov said that Washington's provocative speeches about a possible direct clash between the armed forces of the United States and the Russian Federation are unacceptable for a responsible nuclear power.

“In an attempt to ‘add fuel’ to the fire of the Ukrainian proxy war local authorities have finally lost touch with reality, easily discussing the likelihood of a direct clash between the armed forces of our countries. This kind of provocative rhetoric is unacceptable for a responsible nuclear state," the diplomat said then. Mr. Antonov also commented on the words of the US authorities that Russia allegedly would not stop in case of victory over Ukraine and invade one of the NATO countries, which would create prerequisites for a direct clash between the Armed Forces of Russia and the United States.
