Bulgaria is working on three possible scenarios to address a possible conflict between Russia and Ukraine, this country’s Minister of Defense Minister Stefan Yanev said for Nova News TV. "In the coming weeks, it will become clear what decision will be taken. A meeting of NATO Ministers of Defense is scheduled for February. Until then, we must adopt a national position," Minister Yanev said.

At the request of NATO, Spain is going to send 6 Eurofighter aircrafts and 100 military men to Bulgaria in February, Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles announced. "The mission aims to protect the airspace of the NATO allies in a situation of constant presence of Russian aircraft," Robles Margarita said.
