NATO have agreed to bolster nuclear, chemical and biological and cyber warfare as they are fearing a Russian attack could drag the Alliance into war with Vladimir Putin.
The 30 nation Alliance have said that they will equip the Ukraine the means to defend themselves from such a devastating attack.
NATO’s General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg warned, “There is also a risk that it (a chemical weapons attack) will have a direct effect on people living in NATO countries.”

Stoltenberg also said that NATO will add more troops in eastern Europe and are ready to defend every inch the Alliances territory on the ground and in the air. There are currently around 40,000 NATO troops between the Black Sea and the Baltic states.
World leaders are fearful that Russia could resort to desperate measures in using chemical weapons which would be a game changer for the world as we know it.
Stoltenberg warned that the world is in the face of the “biggest threat to our security in a generation” and will now deploy “four new battle groups” in Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania.
Stoltenberg said, “We stand with the Ukrainian people” and “are determined to do all we can to support Ukraine.”
He called on China to refrain from supporting Moscow’s war effort, he said, “China must not provide economic or military support for Russian invasion.
“Instead, Beijing should use its significant influence on Russia and promote an immediate peaceful resolution.”
