Mattis: Russia "seeks to reshape international borders by force"

59
Pentagon chief James Mattis accused Russia of trying to reshape interstate borders using force, reports TASS.




Together with other NATO members, we confront common security threats. This is opposed by Russia, which seeks to reshape international borders by force, as well as to have the opportunity to resort to the right of veto in respect of diplomatic, economic and security decisions made by Europeans.
said Mattis at a meeting at the Pentagon with Montenegrin counterpart Predrag Boskovic.

He stressed Washington’s commitment to strengthening military relations with Montenegro and expressed satisfaction that the republic "became an integral part of NATO by strengthening the transatlantic alliance."

Boshkovic, in turn, noted that, after joining NATO, Montenegro "successfully completed its first foreign policy priority task."

Recall, Montenegro became the 29-m member of the alliance in June 2017. The authorities of the republic made a decision to join NATO through the parliament controlled by them. The opposition boycotted this meeting. No referendum on this issue was held in the country.

      Rather, get it.
      Legally, the USSR began its collapse in 1984, when the next union treaty with Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Belarus ended. And the money in the Union stopped moving. By 1986, problems began with foreign payments. And no gestures to extend / re-sign the union treaties were made, because this was supervised by the ideological department of the CPSU Central Committee, and someone began the dissolution of the CPSU. By 1992, the Federation could begin to break up.

          So "study carefully." The options for the collapse of the Union in my memory have been carefully considered since 1964 (and, apparently, earlier). I believe you forgot to call, for lack of access. According to my data, the same strategy was supported in the Republic of Ingushetia.
          Real analysis and analysis is very different from the fantasies of "experts." There are thousands of development options, realistic - hundreds. And part of the "beautiful" decisions leads to extreme. But is it for us?
          I won’t “prove” anything, but the “variant” so propagandized over the hill in all possible forms leads to extreme sports with a probability of 84%. And higher.
          "He who sees - sees, he who seeks - yes he shall come to an end, prayer - let him be heard." On this pessimistic note, I refer you to Evsikov’s forecasts. I hope you stop breaking through the open door, and send those who tell you that the door is open.

    When NATO began to bomb, there was no single Yugoslavia for several years (learn history). And the bombing began because the Serbs in Bosnia began to organize concentration camps and ethnic cleansing in Srebrenica

    With Srebnitsa, not everything is still obvious:
    Surrounded by Serb forces, Muslim troops from Srebrenica often raided nearby Serb settlements. In such attacks, armed groups accompanied groups of refugees (the so-called “Serb. Torbari”) who grabbed everything they needed for life and killed the Serbs who did not have time to escape

    And about the concentration camps ... Are you talking about a photo of thin people behind barbed wire? Which turned out to be staged? belay

    And what are our actions? Is it time to kick the Americans and Germans out of Ukraine? Or is the time not yet? We live by the principle yesterday was early, and tomorrow will be late? But this could be said with the brains of V.I. Lenin. And today it would be necessary to call the US ambassador to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (the guy sat in his office), and hand him a diplomatic note about the inadmissibility of such statements by elderly American generals who, by the will of fate, became American officials. And in words to ask to convey to Mr. Trump that the response from our Ministry of Defense will be very fast and is unlikely to please the American partners.
    But alas, swallow again. As if indigestion did not happen from constant swallows.
