NATO's greatest weakness has been exposed: that it could lead to serious problems

Another NATO official told the newspaper.

NATO is mainly concerned about Russian drones, cruise bombs and missiles, and confronting them causes problems for Ukraine, which is equipped with many modern air defense systems.
