The North Atlantic Alliance has plans in the event of the escalation of Russian military aggression against Ukraine, but is not obliged to defend the state.

Head of the Mission of Ukraine to NATO Vadym Prystaiko said this in comments to an Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels.

"Of course, planning is underway. Its result is the alliance's response regarding the strengthening of its military presence in the Baltics, Poland, Romania, and Bulgaria. It is no coincidence. It is a response to the growing threat from Russia, which is confirmed by an attempt to annex Crimea and destabilization in the east of Ukraine," Prystaiko said.

At the same time, the diplomat noted, Ukraine did not become a member of the alliance, whose members all the allies are obliged to defend.
