Last week, the Netherlands Minister of Defence, Kajsa Ollongren met with her German counterpart, Christine Lambrecht. While the worrying developments in Ukraine and Mali were the main topics on the agenda, the two ministers also discussed the intensive military cooperation between the Netherlands and Germany during missions and exercises, in the procurement of new equipment and in many other projects. The Netherlands MoD does not cooperate as closely with any other country as it does with Germany.

The US President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken keep saying Russia might invade Ukraine despite the Russian troops withdrawing from the Ukrainian border.

According to "The Guardian" Russia has amassed up to 190,000 troops on the borders with Ukraine. The United States said this is the biggest mobilization of troops since the Second World War and an increase of more than 90,000 in less than a month.

New helicopters and a battle group deployment of tanks, armored personnel carriers and support equipment have deployed in Russia, near the border, according to U.S.-based Maxar Technologies, which tracks developments with satellite imagery.

To date, several European countries, as well as Canada and the United States, have provided large quantities of arms, ammunition and military equipment to Ukraine in order to strengthen the military capabilities of the Ukrainian armed forces in the event of an invasion by Russia.
