Vladimir Putin activates the plan to "bury" NATO, a great rival

Vladimir Putin's rhetoric about a Eurasian security coalition is part of a Kremlin plan to create a group of countries friendly to Moscow to rival the West and NATO, the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) has said. experts in Washington, DC follows Putin's visit to North Korea, which, an international security expert told Newsweek, has "deepened an already intensifying relationship of coziness" between Moscow and Pyongyang. Putin said Moscow is ready to discuss Eurasian security issues with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), led by Russia and China, the Moscow-led Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). as well as with the BRICS countries. He told military graduates at the Kremlin palace in Moscow about plans "to create equal security in Eurasia."

The anti-NATO coalition

He echoes comments by his foreign minister Sergei Lavrov who told a meeting of foreign ministers in Almaty, Kazakhstan about Moscow's efforts to form a "Eurasian security architecture" to replace the Euro-Atlantic security system. ISW said Lavrov was probably referring to Moscow's efforts to increase cooperation with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) following Putin's state visit to Vietnam, which he has included in his idea of ??Eurasia, apart from North Korea . The US study said Putin and his officials would likely push Russia's efforts to create a coalition "to establish itself as an alternative to NATO", while also trying to "falsely portray the countries Western countries as the only supporters of Ukraine". This is part of a Kremlin plan to create a group that can act "as an alternative to the West and undermine NATO," ISW added.

Pact with North Korea

Since his full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Putin has increased his calls for a shift away from what he has criticized as a Western-dominated global political and economic system. In his first visit to North Korea in nearly a quarter of a century, the countries agreed on a mutual defense pact as Moscow increasingly turns to the isolated state for munitions to help Russian forces in Ukraine. "The new partnership has deepened an already intensified relationship of convenience," Gabrielle Reid, associate director at strategic intelligence firm S-RM, told Newsweek in emailed comments. However, amid the emergence of a growing alliance between Russia and North Korea, Reid said cooperation "will be muted and will remain driven by necessity rather than an intent to simultaneously advance their respective aggressive policy agendas external". "China has also kept a distance from the deal to avoid overtly damaging cooperation with Western trading partners or giving undue attention to the deal as a trilateral agreement," Reid added.

Hybrid warfare

Thus, Russia's increasing use of hybrid and gray zone attacks against European countries is presenting a major challenge for the US and NATO: how to respond without igniting a major conflict with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Baltic states, Poland and the Czech Republic in particular, are raising the alarm that acts of sabotage and sometimes fatal attacks against individuals - allegedly sponsored by Russia - are a growing threat to Europe and the defense alliance. "Russia is throwing new challenges at us all the time, new risks, and the hybrid has become one of the serious ones for the alliance," Estonia's ambassador to NATO, Jüri Luik, said in an interview with The Hill in Washington last week. .Secretary of State Antony Blinken admitted late last month that the Kremlin was "stepping up its hybrid attacks" against NATO members and raised the possibility of possible retaliation.
