Future military exercises of NATO and Americans in Europe are directed against Russia and Belarus. Russia’s reaction will be extremely negative. Such large-scale exercises with Navy, Air Force and the involvement of heavy armoured vehicles, can be considered as very serious military preparations. Moreover, as preparations for war.
Europe today faces very important task related to the settlement of the civil war in Ukraine. And creation of a new European security architecture.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine, attempting to portray it as a civil war. By claiming that Europe has to settle the war in Ukraine, the Russian side is trying to divert attention from its own responsibility for provoking the war in Ukraine. It disregards the extensive factual evidence confirming ongoing Russian military presence in Donbas. Prior debunks of this narrative can be found here and here.
The war in Ukraine is supported by Russian Federation armed forces, it is not a civil war. Overwhelming evidence confirms that Russia is sending mercenaries to Donbas. The European Union stated in July 2014 that "arms and fighters continue flowing into Ukraine from the Russian Federation", and continue to condemn the clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since February 2014.
