German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius warned that the war between Russia and Ukraine could expand beyond the neighboring countries.

"We hear threats from the Kremlin almost every day — most recently again against our friends in the Baltic states," Pistorius told the Tagesspiegel newspaper in an article published on Friday.

"So far, we have provided everything we can," he added.

"It must be clear to everyone: If Putin wins this war and occupies Ukraine, the danger for the alliance area will of course also increase," the politician warned.
