Belarus’ president Lukashenko is mocking Russia by carrying out a joint military exercise with NATO and the United Kingdom. British troops will deploy in what not so long ago the West considered “an advanced post of tyranny” and against which it still keeps some sanctions.
What if a NATO member attacks another member, as it is happening now with Turkey and Greece? In Greece, we are seeing NATO at the edge. Europe is completely dependent on the US.

This is part of a recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on NATO, portraying it as a useless, decadent and Russophobic organisation with no role in today’s world. You can see other examples in our database, such as NATO’s alleged obsolescence, cannibalistic character, fascistic tendencies and links to white supremacist ideology, its never-ending provocations, its attempts to block Moscow in its sphere of influence, the Alliance's permanent targeting of Russia and Belarus, its role as a US subjugation tool for other countries and its unreliability to defend its members or the claims that NATO is such a disaster that the US didn’t want its help after 9/11 and that it is spreading the coronavirus in the US.
