Summary of Disinformation

The future accession of Ukraine to NATO means an inevitable war between Russia and the West because NATO is approaching Russian borders and will get another common border with Russia.

Disproof

No evidence given. 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, .
