Summary of Disinformation

Trading American weapons is one of the main goals of NATO’s existence.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO portraying it as an aggressive organization with intent to destroy the world order.

NATO’s essential and enduring purpose is to safeguard the freedom and security of all its members by political and military means. Collective defence is at the heart of the Alliance and creates a spirit of solidarity and cohesion among its members.

The North Atlantic Treaty, the fundamental document of NATO states that any international disputes, in which NATO may participate, should be resolved by peaceful means in order to preserve international peace, security and justice.
