The procedure to extend the sanctions requires a unanimous vote, i.e. if one EU member state votes against the continuation of sanctions, they will be lifted. Such a possibility is quite realistic given the current mood in Europe, which is mostly constructive towards Russia. This means that the Europeans have finally realised that sanctions against Russia are totally ineffective.
NATO enlargement is the main problem in relations between Russia and Europe. Had the Alliance not expanded, there wouldn’t have been problems with Ukraine and Georgia.
NATO is not a threat to Russia. NATO is a defensive alliance. Its essential and enduring purpose is to safeguard the freedom and security of all its members by political and military means. NATO's exercises and military deployments are not directed against Russia – nor any other country. In March 2014, in response to Russia's aggressive actions against Ukraine, NATO suspended practical cooperation with Russia.
