Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about US presence in Europe, NATO and its military exercises.
NATO is a defensive alliance, whose purpose is to protect its member states. The primary aim of the alliance is to maintain peace and safeguard the independence, security and territorial integrity of its members. The Alliance abides by strict procedural guidelines and emphasises transparency during exercises, which are indicated months in advance and are subject to international scrutiny.
Rapid Trident 21, is an annual Ukrainian-led, American-assisted training exercise aiming to increase combat readiness, defense capabilities and interoperability, and involves 15 nations: Ukraine, U.S., Bulgaria, Canada, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Lithuania, the Republic of Moldova, Pakistan, The Republic of Poland, Romania, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
There is no basis to claims that Ukraine "has been turned into a zone of US colonization and military intervention". Ukraine is a sovereign state that conducts independent security and defense policy. Ukraine's territorial integrity however continues to be violated by Russia's acts of armed aggression.
