Disinfo: NATO is not a defensive alliance, but an alliance for…

Summary

NATO is not a defensive alliance, but an alliance for waging offensive war. Western journalists justify NATO’s actions by alleged Russian aggressive behaviour e.g. in Ukraine – which is not true.

Disproof

"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/29v2Bej, // For "no Russian threat", see above.

Russia is not a threat, the civil war in Ukraine is.

Disproof

There is not a "civil war" in Ukraine, there is Russian military aggression. // The simulated attacks by Russian warplanes on USS Donald Cook, the abduction of Estonian security service operative, Eston Kohver, the repeated violation of the Baltic states' airspace, military threats against EU Member States and dozens of other provocations by Russia suggest Russia wants to be perceived as a threat.

“Czechia”: The change of the name of the Czech Republic in the UN is the start of the destruction of national identity. Berlin is behind this process, as it aims to build the Fourth German Empire.

Disproof

There was no change of the name of state, only its shortened version has been registered in the UN. The term Czechia has much longer history: it has its roots in the 17th century and is used in English since the 19th century. // No evidence for further conspiracy theories given.
