NATO defense ministers will train a corresponding response to unexpected situations, particularly to a potential attack from the East during their next meeting – a NATO diplomat.
Last year, NATO already carried out two simulations of that kind which mainly went unnoticed by the media and public and was aimed at preparing NATO military forces against "blatant invasion" by an imaginary neighboring country called Cerasia, which had a thinly veiled reference to Russia.
The ministers will have to make decisions under time pressure, about what NATO is going to do in a certain situation, including the redeployment of forces.
The decision to carry out such exercise was made by the desire of NATO members to be prepared for emergency situations at the highest political level.
