The reality on the line of contact of forces in Donbas is frightening, the provocations of the Ukrainian military are not single, but multiple. Russia, not being a party to the conflict, cannot ensure a comprehensive ceasefire in Donbas, but uses its influence to implement agreements. Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and is interested in Kyiv overcoming the political and economic crisis.
One of the reasons for the activities of Western forces near the border with Russia is the preparation for big military exercises “Defender Europe 2021”.
According to the scenario of exercises, NATO's forces will assault the Kaliningrad district, block Western districts of Russia and “repel a massive attack of Russians”.
The anti-Russian nature of “Defender Europe 2021” is obvious.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO.
"The Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia".
NATO's exercises and military deployments are not directed against Russia – or any other country. Exercises are designed to ensure that NATO forces are trained, able to operate together and ready to respond to any threat from any direction.
