German General: Russia can attack NATO in 5-8 years

The Inspector General of the German Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Carsten Breuer, predicts that Russia may be ready to attack the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance in five to eight years, when it will restore the forces damaged by the war in Ukraine.

Breuer made this statement during his visit to Poland.

As the German general pointed out, Russia has increased the production of military equipment, but not all of it goes to the needs of its front in Ukraine.

“Therefore, we must be ready in 2029. We see a threat in five to eight years,” he believes.

Based on the analysis of the Bundeswehr, after the aforementioned time period Russia will restore its forces “to such a level that an attack on NATO territory will become possible.”

“I’m not saying it will happen, but it could happen,” added the Bundeswehr inspector general.

In recent weeks, a number of European NATO countries have warned of the risk of Russian aggression in the near future.

For example, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius also said in January that the Alliance should prepare for a Russian attack on a NATO country within 5-8 years.

And according to Polish President Andrzej Duda, Russia may soon have such a military potential that it will be able to attack NATO already in 2026-27.
