NATO expansion takes place under the flag of a mythical threat from Russia, while the alliance has not managed to adapt to the new conditions, continuing to act on Cold War calendars.
The expansion of NATO in the Balkans destabilizes the situation. “The Balkans should become a place where, in the interests of developing the region, it would be possible to add up efforts, say, to Russia and the European Union”.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives on NATO. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=NATO&disinfo_issue=&date=, The claim about NATO "expansion" misrepresents the process of NATO enlargement. NATO does not "expand" but considers the applications of candidate countries which want to join. In any case, no such promise was made https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/topics_109141.htm.
EU enlargement is not an obstacle to maintaining or developing relations with Russia as long as the countries conserned commit to and implement the necessary democratic, economic, social and market reforms.
