At the same time, Great Britain has announced, it will join the USA in training Ukrainian military forces. The discussion of arms deliveries continues. NATO is now also taking an aggressive posture toward Moldova. "Russia could target Moldova," the media affirms, quoting NATO's Supreme Commander, Gen. Philip Breedlove.
