The Ukrainian provocation in the Kerch Strait in 2018 will be considered at an international tribunal. The initiator of this was the representation of Crimea in Brussels.
NATO does not deserve the Czech Republic’s 2% [of the GDP]. Czech defence spending should not serve the expansionary pan-world efforts of the United States, as has unfortunately been the case so far. It would be extremely sad if Czech taxpayers’ money should be used to further liquidate sovereign nation states, to promote the interests of multinational corporations, and last but not least, to initiate wars over natural resources.
This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO acting as an aggressor and being a threat to global security and stability. In addition, it also promotes the common disinformation narrative that the US - in this case via NATO - is seeking "imperialistic" control over Europe and undermining the sovereignty of other countries. NATO is a defensive alliance whose purpose is to protect its member states. Every country that joins NATO undertakes to uphold its principles and policies, and this includes the commitment that "the Alliance does not seek confrontation". NATO fully supports the sovereignty of nation states as defined by international law. Moreover, NATO decisions are made by consensus, after discussion and consultation among member countries. This means that when a “NATO decision” is announced, it is the expression of the collective will of all the sovereign states that are members of the Alliance. No single country can determine the course of NATO policy. To read more about disinformation narratives targeting NATO, see here. For similar cases, see here.
