The European Institutions take away the freedom from the European nations and introduce useless standards, legal and economic. They also interfere through these instruments in cultural issues and issues related to social policy and migration.
NATO itself rejected the positive agenda in its relations with Russia. It [the agenda] does not exist. And there are no signs that NATO knows how to resolve this deadlock.
In recent years Russia has faced unprecedented NATO activity near its borders. NATO calls it “the prevention of Russian aggression”.
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 outside the alliance has such a privileged relationship with NATO.
As stated by NATO heads of state and government at the Warsaw Summit in July 2016, "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".
