Americans established a new type of colonialism which is called NATO

Summary of Disinformation

Americans established a new type of colonialism which is called NATO. NATO is an empire reborn, but the nations within it do not realize under whose command they are.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO and US presence in Europe. See similar previous cases: the US created NATO to keep European states in the bridle and NATO forces could be used against European states opposing the US’s wishes. 

NATO membership is open to any European state in a position to further the principles of the North AtlanticTreaty and to contribute to the security of the North Atlantic area. All NATO members have made sovereign decisions to join the alliance.  NATO decisions are made by consensus, after discussion and consultation among member countries.
