Summary of Disinformation

The accession of Montenegro to NATO is a plot of the West against Russia and a treacherous attempt to reduce significantly the real influence of Russians in this Balkan country.

Disproof

No evidence given. It is, as always with NATO accessions, Montenegro itself that has applied to join NATO. 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, .
