One of the main tasks of NATO in Syria was to deprive the Russian fleet of the naval supply base in Tartus, Syria.
The (Ukrainian) coup was orchestrated (by the EU) in Kyiv.
The EU wants to expand towards the East, the Mediterranean region, and the Black Sea, just as it tried hard for two decades to build bridges of extremism and terrorism to Russia’s loose flank in the Caucasus.
The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013, called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan", were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last-minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure.
The EU sees Ukraine as a priority partner. It supports Ukraine in ensuring a stable, prosperous, and democratic future for its citizens, and unequivocally supports Ukraine’s independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty.
On the other hand, NATO expansion is also a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative. NATO does not "expand" in the imperialistic sense described by pro-Kremlin media, and is not directed against Russia. Rather, it considers the applications of candidate countries who want to join the alliance based on their own national will. Similarly, membership of the EU is also based on applications from countries respecting the democratic values of the EU and committed to promoting them.
The story of a plan to destabilise the Caucasus is a repeating disinformation message and 2-year old fake message.
