Ex-Pentagon chief Ashton Carter said that NATO needs to develop a plan of military action in case of a conflict with Russia.

With this statement, Carter spoke at a session on cybersecurity at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

"I think that we and our colleagues from NATO need to develop a plan for military action against Russia. We also need a plan in case of invasion of the 'little green men' in the Baltic states, where they (Russia) may use the national minorities", agency quotes him.

According to him, the United States did not see Russia as a military adversary since the fall of the Berlin Wall, but by now the situation has changed.

We recall, the US Department of Defense introduced a new National Defense Strategy, which called Russia and China the main opponents of the United States.

This is the first change in the US military strategy in the last decade. The strategy is aimed at preventing aggression by China and Russia, and the use of coercion and intimidation of tools to achieve their goals and harming US interests and focuses in particular on three key theaters: Europe, Indo-Pacific region, and the Middle East.
