Disinfo: NATO is preparing for war with Russia to get its esources

Summary

NATO is preparing for war with Russia, because Western countries want to gain access to Russia’s resources. The NATO operations on the Eastern flank of the Alliance are serving as provocations, which will eventually lead to a nuclear apocalypse.

Disproof

Neither the US nor other NATO members have intentions to attack Russia. NATO's decision to increase its military presence in the eastern part of the Alliance is a response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine. The UN GA Resolution 68/262, which condemned Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, was supported by 100 United Nations member states. As stated by NATO heads of state and government at the Wales Summit in September 2014, "the Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia. But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest".
