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.
After the collapse of the USSR, the West believed that the “end of history” had arrived. And that it was then allowed to grossly interfere in the affairs of certain states. Moreover, it unceremoniously commands internal political processes. Ukraine is the most glaring example.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Ukrainian statehood and the West's strategy of encircling Russia. Ukraine is a sovereign state and not controlled by any foreign government. Its sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by the Western countries but were violated by Russia in 2014. Ukraine is an independent state with a democratically elected president and Parliament. The EU and the US work closely with Ukraine and support the democratic development of Ukraine in accordance with the UN Charter’s principles of non-interference into internal affairs and respect towards territorial integrity and political independence.
