Summary of Disinformation

The enlargement of NATO after the Cold War was imposed on Eastern European states by the USA. Russia received assurances that NATO will not expand further East in 1990.

Disproof

No evidence given as regards the imposition of NATO membership by the USA on Eastern European states. The alleged promise that NATO will not enlarge further east, which was supposedly given to Gorbachev during negotiations on the reunification of Germany, is not recorded anywhere (bit.ly/1TOdz4k), , is not part of any treaties, and was even denied by Gorbachev himself (bit.ly/1XZDtSz), .
