British Officers in the Greek Pentagon - Bombshell from Slovak Prime Minister for NATO's direct involvement in Ukraine

British colonels at the Pentagon. Largely unnoticed was the arrival in Greece of five British colonels from the mobile training unit of the British Ministry of Defence, who were on a special mission: to present to 80 Greek officers from the most important branches of the Armed Forces the lessons learned from the war in Ukraine.


It was a kind of briefing on issues of modern strategic communication and information dissemination through networks, as the British officers analyzed interdisciplinary and IT operations, strategic communication and integration of new technological capabilities in the conduct of armed conflicts on the fronts of Ukraine, as reported by


Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fiko claims that several NATO and EU countries want to send troops to Ukraine

A nightmare scenario of where the military conflict in Ukraine could lead is coming to the fore: several NATO and EU member states are considering sending troops to Ukraine on a bilateral basis, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fitso claimed on Monday (26/2), as reported by

"I will limit myself to stating that these (preparatory) positions (ahead of today's meeting) suggest that some NATO and EU countries are considering sending troops to Ukraine on a bilateral basis," Fizzo told reporters after the Slovak Security Council meeting. "I cannot say for what purpose and what they will do there," he added, clarifying that his country, which is a member of the EU and NATO, would not send soldiers to Ukraine. Ficho said he sees a risk of a major escalation in the war in Ukraine and that he could not disclose more information.


Ficho, who has long voiced his disagreement with the delivery of weapons systems to Ukraine and maintains a stance that some describe as pro-Russian, did not provide further clarification on this claim. Other European leaders have so far made no comment on the Slovak prime minister's statement, which was made ahead of the European leaders' meeting in Paris, where the Ukrainian issue is being discussed and which Fitcho himself will attend. Fizzo said that French President Emmanuel Macron's convening of this extraordinary meeting shows that the West's strategy in Ukraine has failed. He added that he will participate in a constructive spirit, although the issues to be discussed "give him the creeps."

NATO members have given billions of dollars worth of arms and ammunition to Kiev and are training Ukrainian soldiers. But the countries' leaders, including U.S. President Joe Biden, stress that NATO wants to avoid a direct conflict with Russia that could lead to global war. "Neither NATO nor NATO's allies are part of the conflict," the pact's secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, reiterated on February 14. There was no comment on Fizzo's statements on behalf of NATO.
