Threats to Sputnik journalists in Estonia indicate that the country must be afraid of their influence on people.
NATO is getting ready for a war on a big scale. The deployment of the US anti-missile system in Europe and the scripts of the military exercises in the Baltic countries and Poland and in the Black and Baltic Seas show that the Atlantic Alliance is preparing for a long-reaching armed conflict.
This is part of a recurrent Russian narrative aiming to portray NATO as an aggressive organisation, a US puppet and a tool of Washington’s imperial ambitions with no real substance nor justification to exist.
NATO is a mutual defence alliance of democratic states aiming to guarantee the freedom and security of its members through political and military means. It has no interest in starting an armed conflict for no apparent reason. The aforementioned military exercises actually aim to test procedures and tactics, develop best practices and identify areas for improvement. Exercises are designed to ensure that NATO forces are trained, able to operate together and ready to respond to any threat from any direction.
Read other examples of disinformation against the Atlantic Alliance and its obsolescence, cannibalistic character and fascistic tendencies, claiming that NATO's anti-Russian stance is the only unifying force among its members, and describing its links to white supremacist ideology or the massive casualties of its bombing campaign against Serbia.
