It's NATO, not Russian Federation, should be considered a security risk, considering the recent actions of the Commonwealth, says the Agency.
Such conclusions are drawn by the journalist of the Agency, analyzing published the first document in which the Alliance was debunked Russian myths about NATO."
According to one of the "myths" that NATO promised not to expand to the East. The Alliance claims that such promises have not been, And Russia has no evidence to the contrary. Sputnik News from our side is reminiscent of the words of Gorbachev, declared: "in the process of negotiations on the consolidation of Germany they gave assurances that NATO would not expand the area of its activity to the East."
While Sputnik News emphasizes that the former leader of the USSR And in truth could not get a written offer from the Commonwealth, but " facts are facts ".
Another assertion that NATO's position as the " Russian myth ", linked To the right of Russia to 100% guarantee " that Ukraine will not join NATO. The Alliance cites the Helsinki agreement of 1975, Under which the signatories to this document, have the opportunity to join any associations And international organizations.
Sputnik News says: Russia has never violated those agreements And has never opposed the idea about the fact that Ukraine or any other country could choose which organizations to join - but not in the case, when equipped with a weapon group of nationalists in the end, the coup seized power With the assistance of the United States.
in addition, stresses the Agency, the Alliance many times violated the Helsinki agreement - for example, in the process of their actions within the former Republic of Yugoslavia.
Another like " Russian myth ", which was reported in Alliance assertion about the fact that NATO was of the mindset of " cold war ". From the position of NATO, this is not true, as the cold war was a confrontation between the 2 ideological blocs, and Russia remained " no credible ideology, no significant allies in the international arena.
review the author's Sputnik News, the argument of the Commonwealth "falling apart" From the very beginning: at the moment, as Russia And in truth no longer promotes the ideas of communism And does not propagate to the world revolutionary movement, NATO, after all cooperation agreements And all of these promises, is Still functioning, as during the cold war, And continues to expand.
Sputnik News notes that the Russian Federation did not react to NATO expansion first from weakness, then out of courtesy And due to the credibility of its Western partners." And now NATO supported Ukrainian military equipment And personnel in the heart of Ukraine, a survivor of the coup. And security threat Still is Russia?", summarizes Sputnik News.
