European leaders should prepare for a possible attack from Russia in the coming years. According to Azernews, this was stated by French President Emmanuel Macron, as reported by France's El Mundo

He said that we (the countries of Europe) must prepare for an attack from Russia in the coming years.

"The collective analysis is that in a few years, we must prepare for an attack by Russia," Macron said at the opening of a conference in Paris in support of Ukraine, which was attended by about twenty heads of state and government.

NATO Military Committee Chairman Admiral Rob Bauer stated that the alliance needed transformation, and the West had to prepare for an era where anything could happen at any time, including the start of a war, says newsukraine.

On January 16, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned that wavering Western support for Kyiv and fears of escalation with Russia could prolong hostilities for years.

Earlier, Bild reported that NATO intended to conduct large-scale exercises involving around 90,000 military personnel in February. The scenario for the exercises was an attack by Russia on NATO territory.

According to the analysis of some political commentators and think-tanks, the West's giving such a signal of excitement is a kind of encouragement to Ukraine and shows that they are not leaving it alone on the field. The US, which has effectively suspended military aid to Ukraine, knows that more than 16 percent of Ukraine's territory is under Russian control. The comments state that after only two years of war, the West realised that it was impossible to defeat Russia through Ukraine alone. For this reason, Europe and NATO have already started sending a message of alarm.

It should be noted that the war between Ukraine and Russia has been going on for more than two years.
