NATO has a plan to attack and occupy Turkey

Summary of Disinformation

NATO has a plan to attack and occupy Turkey. NATO was behind all coup attempts in Turkey. Turkey has bought Russian S-400 missile systems in order to prepare and defend itself from possible occupation by NATO.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO.

NATO is a political and military alliance, and NATO member states, including Turkey, make sovereign decisions about their own security.  NATO and US military presence in these states is possible only on the basis of the clear consent  of the hosting nation.  Moreover, All NATO decisions are made by consensus, after discussion and consultation among member countries.
