Russia remains the biggest challenge for the alliance, said Jonathan Eyal, associate director at the Royal United Services Institute. "The appeal by President Zelenskiy of Ukraine is a reminder that actually not only NATO remains the focal point of attention for countries that were former members of the Soviet Union and are desperate to escape from an enduring Russian sphere of influence, but also that the alliance is ultimately the only security structure in Europe that matters," Eyal told VOA.
