The US created NATO to keep European states in the bridle

Summary of Disinformation

The US created NATO to keep European states in the bridle. And it works very well. They (USA) are dragging NATO into all the hot spots which they are fueling. They demand that the military of other NATO countries be ahead or near them.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO and US presence in Europe.

On 4 April 1949, the foreign ministers from 12 countries, including the United States, signed the North Atlantic Treaty creating NATO. At the heart of the Alliance has always been collective defence and security of all its members. All NATO decisions are made by consensus, after discussion and consultation among member countries. Allies decide whether to engage in a crisis management operation on a case-by-case basis and by consensus.
