The Pentagon announced an increase in the likelihood of a collision with Russia

The risk of international conflict involving the great powers is growing, said Mark Milley, head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Addressing the graduates of the West Point Military Academy, he urged them to prepare for such a development.

“The world into which you are graduating has the potential for major international conflict involving the great powers. And that likelihood is increasing, not decreasing,” Milley said.


The American general during his speech attributed Russia and China to the world powers.

“Now we are facing two world powers, Russia and China, each of which has significant military capabilities and is serious about changing the current rules based on order,” he said.


As previously reported in the Russian Defense Ministry, at the initiative of the American side, Mark Milli had a telephone conversation with Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov. The parties discussed several issues, including the situation in Ukraine, and agreed to keep lines of communication open.
