NATO has started deploying a large number of troops, warships, and fighter aircraft around Russia. After unsuccessful negotiations, Russia and America are going through such a huge military tension after almost 30 years. Russia has announced that it will conduct military exercises at sea near Ireland next month. Ireland has warned Russia that such military exercises will not be welcome. After efforts to reduce tension with the help of dialogue and diplomacy failed, now NATO has also started military deployment in Eastern Europe around Russia in large numbers. The US-led NATO says this is being done with the intention of preventing any action that may incite war. NATO member country, Denmark is sending its fighter naval ships and F-16 fighter jets to Lithuania. Spain is also sending its warships to the Baltic Sea. There is also a possibility that Spain may send its fighter planes to Bulgaria. France says that it is also ready to send its army to Bulgaria. The Netherlands has also kept its army and navy on standby.

In 2014, citing the same logic, Russia invaded Crimea and took it under its control. Moscow has said many times that if the Ukrainian army takes action against pro-Russian separatists, the consequences could be dire. Confused EU NATO's announcement of military deployment also has a message for EU foreign ministers. EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, who is presiding over the meeting, says, "We are showing an unprecedented unity of view on the situation in Ukraine."

Financial assistance of 2 billion euros has also been given. Borrell was asked whether EU countries would recall the families of employees posted in their embassies in Ukraine? In response, Borrell said, "We will not take exactly the same step." The US and Britain have withdrawn the families of their consular workers from Ukraine. Many member countries of NATO are giving clear indications to follow America. But Germany, the country with the largest economy in the European Union, is in a dilemma. Germany and Russia have friendly relations amidst all the ups and downs. Before reunification, West Germany was with the West, then East Germany was with the Soviet Union. Russian President Vladimir Putin himself has been an agent of the Soviet intelligence agency KGB in East Germany. Germany is also a major buyer of Russian gas. Why pressure on Germany Germany is under pressure after more than one lakh Russian soldiers surrounded Ukraine from three sides. The facts of World War II and the subsequent division of Germany into two parts, it is not easy for Berlin to forget these memories. German leaders know that if war breaks out, even Germany will not be able to escape its heat.

These circumstances are also going to be a test for the new government that came to power in Germany recently. Solving these complexities is not an easy task for new chancellor Olaf Schultz after the political retirement of Angela Merkel, who headed the country for 16 years. The Ukraine crisis has brought Germany into a battle of partner versus neighbor. Its hallmark was also seen last week when German Navy Chief Vice Admiral Kay Akhim Schönbach had to resign over Putin-related statements. During his visit to India, Schönbach said that Putin "only wants respect". Germany's new Foreign Minister Annalena Baierbock has also visited Ukraine and Moscow. In the midst of rising tension, Baerbock has said, "We should not participate in making the situation worse. In the midst of escalating tensions, the French government has asked its citizens to avoid going to Ukraine if it is not necessary.
