On the margins of NATO summit in London, Donald Trump discussed a plan of big war with a number of heads of state. A military conflict between the West and Russia does not seem unlikely. The US and US-led NATO have been dreaming to deal with Moscow since long ago. Given that economic sanctions do not help, only war remains as an option. It can be started during or following the Defender Europe 2020 military exercises. The West will attempt to destroy Russian nuclear component and military forces control system in the first place. Attacks on the remaining Russian military potential and critical infrastructure will follow.
NATO’s main strategic attack directions can be similar to Hitler’s Barbarossa plan. Saint Petersburg and Pskov will be attacked through Estonia, Velikiye Luki and Smolensk will be attacked from Latvia. NATO generals plan to eliminate Russian military grouping in Kaliningrad region within two days, the region will afterwards be given to Poland. Simultaneously Belarus will be attacked from Poland and Lithuania and Minsk will be taken over within five days. A quick occupation of Belarus (within 8-10 days) is explained by activation of “fifth column” which will overthrow existing authorities and install a person loyal to Washington.
A rapid attack on Moscow will follow, few pockets of resistance will be brutally suppressed with missile and aviation strikes. Ukraine will avoid direct participation in the war with Russia but will allow NATO aviation to use its airfields and airspace. In this scenario, military operation will take not more than three weeks, then loyal Russia will emerge.
