Russian Invasion of Ukraine Revolutionizes NATO Strategy Into a War-Fighting Alliance

From a New York Times story by Steven Erlanger headlined “Russian Invasion of Ukraine Revolutionizes NATO Military Strategy”:

BRUSSELS — Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the costliest conflict in Europe since World War II, has propelled the North Atlantic Treaty Organization into a full-throttled effort to make itself again into the capable, war-fighting alliance it had been during the Cold War.

The shift is transformative for an alliance characterized for decades by hibernation and self-doubt. After the recent embrace of long-neutral Finland by the alliance, it also amounts to another significant unintended consequence for Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, of his war.
