NATO has prepared a strategy for the quick deployment of its forces if Russia launches an attack on Europe in the future. The creation of “land corridors” is one of its features, since it allows for the quick deployment of about 300,000 soldiers, primarily American, to front-line positions in the event of a Russian invasion.

According to British high-ranking military officials who spoke with The Telegraph, the plan calls for troops to land in strategic ports in Europe before moving eastward on prearranged routes to stave off any Russian attacks.

Lt. Gen. Alexander Sollfrank, chief of NATO’s Joint Support and Enabling Command (JSEC), described to the UK publication, “Huge logistics bases, as we know them from Afghanistan and Iraq, are no longer possible because they will be attacked and destroyed very early on in a conflict situation.”

Greece, Italy, Turkey, The Netherlands, and Norway would serve as the starting points for the logistics and troop transit routes; in particular, the port of Rotterdam, a crucial center for northern Europe, is mentioned. The paper also mentions railroads such as the Germany-Poland line, all of which, in theory, would enable the quick deployment of US forces to any NATO state under threat (under Article 5 common defense).

Several alarming stories in UK media have warned that, about the current situation in Ukraine, the West should get ready for war with Russia sometime in the next twenty years.

In March, for instance, The Telegraph published a piece claiming that President Putin had a “paranoid obsession” with inciting war and upsetting allies in the West.

“Now that Russian President Vladimir Putin has secured his historic fifth term in office, it is patently clear that he will devote his next six-year spell at the Kremlin to pursuing his paranoid obsession of confronting the West,” that prior stated.

Regarding the most recent disclosure of the NATO land corridors by The Telegraph on Tuesday, which included the somewhat dramatic and loud headline, “Nato land corridors could rush US troops to the front line in the event of a European war,” the truth is that such broad-stroke contingency plans have been in the files of US and NATO planners since the end of the Cold War.

However, they are undoubtedly being overshadowed by the ongoing intensification of the proxy conflict in Ukraine.

Based on additional planned facts revealed by The Telegraph and its military sources:

If Nato forces entering from the Netherlands are hit by Russian bombardment, or northern European ports destroyed, the alliance is set to shift focus to ports in Italy, Greece and Turkey. From Italian ports, US troops could be carried via land through Slovenia, Croatia to Hungary, which shares a border with Ukraine.

Similar plans exist to transport forces from Turkish and Greek ports through Bulgaria and Romania to reach the alliance’s eastern flank. Plans are also being drawn up to transport troops via ports in the Balkans, as well as through Norway, Sweden and Finland.

The statement “Ukraine suffers very much from these Russian long-range missile attacks on the logistic systems” was attributed to Lt Gen Sollfrank, who further emphasized the significance of troop movements that would be outside the purview of Russian systems.

Visuals showing Western troops’ “land corridors” as they approach Russian forces in a future scenario are included in the paper.

Following the Telegraph report, some pundits have declared that World War III is “starting now.” While the world may be already experiencing the early stages of the conflict at this point (especially when historians look back), there are still escalating steps that need to be taken before missiles begin to fly over Europe. Even if it’s the last minute, hopefully, cooler heads will prevail (though we don’t have much faith in this).

Recently, GreatGameIndia reported that high-ranking NATO officers, including Polish General Adam Marczak, were killed by Russian bombs in Ukraine, signaling an escalation in the conflict and raising questions about NATO’s role.
