NATO official warns country to be ready for war with Russia as Vladimir Putin looks West | World | News

Vlad has called for voluntary basic training for all men and women up to 35 years old.

He also claims the country’s decision to scrap compulsory military service as a reason it would not be ready for a war with Putin’s Russia.

The general also wants legal reforms so Romania can defend itself should it be attacked by drones. Romania was hit by falling debris in September but could not shoot down a drone because the nation’s laws do not allow it.

Vlad added: “We had no combat systems.”

Similar calls have been made by military leaders in the United Kingdom, Germany and Holland. German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius warned a Russian attack on NATO could happen in “five to eight years.”

Vlad says he believes Russia is a “problem for world order and democracy”. He added: “In fact, it is a Russian war with the democratic world. This is not a war with Ukraine.”

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov this week said claims Russia will not stop its operation in Ukraine are “absurd”.

While Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov claimed, “NATO is an instrument of confrontation”. He reiterated that Moscow considers NATO training exercises as a threat.
