Summary of Disinformation

NATO promised it would never expand even to East Germany but these promises,were forgotten and the NATO expansion began.

Disproof

The claim about NATO "expansion" misrepresents the process of NATO enlargement. NATO does not "expand" but considers the applications of candidate countries which want to join. See: bit.ly/269ONPz;, bit.ly/2e6J8oV;, bit.ly/2eFPg9s, . In any case, no such promise was made bit.ly/1qQ3wHH, . This fact was acknowledged by former President Gorbachev himself in 2014 in an interview for (pro-Kremlin outlet) Russia Beyond the Headlines bit.ly/2a6FHvM, .
