At the same time, the General does not rule out that certain incidents can occur between the two forces.

- So far, I do not see any possibility for a large-scale conventional war, said Farina Monday, May 17 as cited by Deustche Welle.

The NATO General said that Russia’s "dangerous" behavior in the Baltic Sea region "may sooner or later lead to the incidents."

Farina also stressed that NATO is not seeking to escalate the relationship with Russia.

- What we do - it's defense and deterrence, he said.

As QHA reported earlier, the North Atlantic Alliance and Ukraine will discuss the security and defense cooperation, as well as raising the combat and interoperability levels of the Armed Forces.
