DISINFO: Eastern European countries in NATO are under Washington’s political and military control
With NATO expansion in Eastern Europe the plan to encircle Russia is complete. Eastern European countries that have joined (or have been forced to join) NATO are now under Washington’s total political and military control. The intelligence services of these countries are also under US control.
Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided for the article’s claims. Russia's land border is just over 20,000 kilometres long. Of that, less than one-sixteenth (1,215 kilometres), is shared with NATO members. Russia has land borders with 14 countries. Only five of them are NATO members. A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about NATO as a tool used by the US to control the policies of European states. This narrative claims that almost all European countries are no longer truly sovereign and the United States dictates EU and member states policies. NATO is a political and military alliance, and NATO member states make sovereign decisions about their own security. NATO and US military presence in these states is possible only on the basis of the clear consent of the hosting nation. Similar disinformation narratives claim that NATO is a new type of US colonialism, that European élites obey Washington, and that EU and NATO member states are subordinated to the US.
