The West ignores Russia’s strategic interests. It wants to contain Russia. Sanctions are a tool of unfair competition. The West supports young, active and ambitious politicians in Russia so that the opposition come to power and destroy the military and industrial potential Vladimir Putin has amassed. The West interferes in Russia's internal affairs by financing a great number of non-profit organisations.
Ukraine wants to get protection from the West following the example of the Baltic states. This desire to become a subject of NATO (like Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia) is so strong in Kyiv that the political elites with their own actions pushed Washington away. But what did NATO actually give to the Baltic states?
Due to membership in NATO, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia now have additional spendings in their budgets and permanent scandals with troops from the US and the United Kingdom. Being part of NATO is not as romantic as it was at the beginning of the 1990s and 2000s, and the population of Baltic States has already felt on their own skin that this membership has more disadvantages than advantages.
In the end, Russian Federation never attacked Ukraine or the Baltics. Neither intelligence services nor Foreign Ministries of these countries published any evidence confirming Russian presence in the Donbas.
Recurring disinformation about NATO.
NATO is a defensive alliance. It should not provide member states with any economic advantages. The purpose of the Alliance is “to guarantee the freedom and security of its members through political and military means”. NATO fully meets this function.
The Alliance have a defence plan for the Baltic states and Poland. It was put in action in summer 2020. The plan was created after the Russian illegal annexation of Crimea and aggression against Ukraine. It also shows that the statement that the "Russian Federation never attacked Ukraine" is not true. The war in Ukraine is a well-documented act of aggression by Russian armed forces, ongoing since February 2014.
