DISINFO: Washington's aggressive policy and Ukrainian crisis are destroying NATO
The Ukrainian crisis, created by the US, could destroy NATO. The irresponsible policy of Washington has created regional wars for decades. In 2014, the US organised a coup in Kyiv. Washington created a zone of military tensions in Europe for its own goals. In the context of this destructive foreign policy of Washington, the existence of an anti-Soviet, anti-Russian and anti-China military alliance has no purpose and is dangerous for Europe.
NATO is a defensive alliance, whose primary aims are to maintain peace and safeguard the independence, security and territorial integrity of its members. Moreover, NATO poses no threat to Russia. During the Warsaw summit in July 2016, NATO made it clear that “The Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia”. This was also reaffirmed in the Brussels Summit Communiqué of 14 June 2021.
During the press conference on 26 January 2022 NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg one more time stressed that “NATO is a defensive Alliance, and we do not seek confrontation”. At the same time, he said that NATO “will take all necessary measures to defend and protect all Allies”.
In his latest article published on 30 January 2022, Josep Borrell stressed that the EU, together with the US and its NATO Allies, continues its work on the European security situations amid Russia's aggressive actions against Ukraine.
