NATO does not seek a cold war with Russia, Stoltenberg said

38
NATO does not need a new cold war with Russia, the alliance does not seek to isolate it, leads InoTV the words of the Secretary General of the North Atlantic bloc Jens Stoltenberg.




NATO is an alliance that keeps its promises. We talk about what we do and do what we say. We are adapting to new challenges and new security threats. Here, in Romania, we are striving to strengthen the Allied presence in the Black Sea. And the deployment of our forces is a direct response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine,
Stoltenberg said at the plenary meeting of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Bucharest.

At the same time, he added:
We do not want to isolate Russia. NATO is not seeking a new cold war. (...) We are concerned about the build-up of Russian troops near our borders and the lack of transparency during the exercise.


In turn, Romanian President Klaus Johannes promised that his country would remain the "responsible participant" of the bloc. According to him, "there is no question of choosing between NATO and the EU."

These are complementary topics, if we want to get reliable protection,
the president stressed, noting the need to strengthen the military presence on the eastern borders of the alliance, primarily on the Black Sea.

        To begin with, sanctions are the method of the Cold War. Moreover, we can safely say that the Russian Federation won the battle. But these army movements are also not in vain, America is not going to pay, and it does not have money, it is actually bankrupt, only creditors have no strength to knock out debts. Also in the rear of the EU, the Catalans and Scottes are reeling the regime, and this has already led to Brexit, etc.

          Hmm ... I would not want to add my own note of pessimism, but ... If the West wanted it, the sanctions would be different, and the consequences would also be different ...
          To say that Russia emerged victorious from these sanctions will be too early, unfortunately ... hi

            Hey. The West (I mean the EU) may be and wants to change the sanction tone to a pragmatic one, but the puppeteer will not allow him to do this by imposing sanctions on the “apostates”. So what we have today, what we have.

              Honestly, I didn’t mean it ... Here it is - something ephemeral, generalized, that in the West-EU, that in Russia ... Those - have lost, Russia - have overcome ...
              And I meant, at least, that WE - without our own diesel engines, without ship power plants, we don’t even have our own diesel locomotives ... Vaughn, Siemens, and General Electric have been dominating our market for more than 100 years ... Tomorrow, khrenak - and instead of today's fake sanctions against Russian embezzlers, they’ll simply cut off any supplies ....
              We already don’t have our nails ... So this article from Di Velta doesn’t warm my soul at all ...
              No matter how hard, no matter how regrettable, but the truth needs to look in the eyes ...
              There were no sanctions against us as such !!! What is now under the guise of sanctions is, so, a petty yard squabble woman ...

        NATO sometimes says that it was Russia that forced them to approach the borders. They defend themselves like that!
        The whole world has already heard about their protection

        Before the events in Ukraine, there were practically no NATO troops on the western border of the Russian Federation. The United States completely withdrew its tanks in 2012 or 2013 from Europe. I won’t tell you exactly. What is the threat of NATO? At the same time, we were building up troops. And no one was afraid of it. They thought that we were just updating forces that, of course, had been in crisis since the 90s. When the Crimea and the Donbass struck, there was a surprise for them. They began to concentrate more on defense. They began carrying out modernization programs for equipment. Obviously, Stoltenberg is not cunning here. They respond to our activity and increased desire to solve problems by military means. Remember how in Germany they scandalized that most of the military equipment was not operational. Even separate hearings were held in the Bundestag. Therefore, the threat of NATO is a fairy tale for us. I am more concerned about the real million-strong Chinese army on our eastern border. What does she live there? Or are they afraid that Russia will attack China? Nonsense. So they stand in case there is an opportunity to snatch a piece. Here I am more afraid of them, because there is a real military force that is directed to the Far East. There is nothing of the kind on our western border. A pair of rotational battalions to calm the allies and no more. This is not a threat.

      Almost literal translation from "NATO Military Policy on Information Operations" (2012, p. 20):
      strategic propaganda smoothes the gap between NATO statements and reality

      The funny thing is that the document is in the public domain. That is, they are not even shy ...

    In the first lines, he "did not strive for a cold war," but in the ending he needed to "restrain Russia because of aggression in Ukraine." Right somersaults of logic and rhetoric. We want peace, but we’ll stick more missiles at the border just in case, you never know, you’re kind of aggressive and we’ll be calmer to “hold you back”. request recourse fellow

    Still strange people are these American politicians. They contradict themselves and the statements of their former president (and the current one is not much different). Confused, lost, lost in their own constant lies. They just need to pay extra for harm.

    “NATO does not strive for a cold war with Russia” ...
    Well, yes, yes ... In its actions, it seems that NATO needs a war with Russia only hot ...

    “NATO is an alliance that keeps its promises.” ...
    Especially after the promise of non-proliferation of NATO to the borders of Russia ...

    “And the deployment of our forces is a direct response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine” ...

    It is a pity that Russia does not have the strength and resources to adequately respond to NATO (and, above all, the USA) by deploying its forces on the American continent ... UNTIL so far ...

    “We are worried about the buildup of Russian troops near our borders and the lack of transparency during exercises "...

    Near whose borders ??? Ukraine has already been admitted to NATO ??????? !!!!!!!
    (This is - if we mean the unfolding combined-arms and tank associations in the Central Federal District) ...
