Summary

NATO deployed forces in Eastern Europe in order to prepare for war with Russia.

Disproof

No evidence given. Since the end of the Cold War, NATO reached out to Russia with a series of partnership initiatives, culminating in the foundation of the NATO-Russia Council in 2002. No other country has such a privileged relationship with NATO. As stated by NATO heads of state and government at the Wales Summit in September 2014, "the Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia. But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest" (bit.ly/1RZsFzv), .
