US significantly cuts spending on NATO funding

The United States is cutting its spending on NATO funding, while other members must compensate. It is reported by CNN.


According to CNN, received from a senior NATO representative on condition of anonymity, the US Presidential Administration Donald Trump has achieved a significant reduction in the cost of financing the alliance, agreeing with other NATO member countries a new cost formula. According to the decision, US spending on the alliance will decrease, and Canada and other countries of the alliance will compensate them with their investments.

All allies agreed on a new cost-sharing formula. In accordance with the new formula, the share of costs of most European allies and Canada will increase, while the share of the United States will decrease. This is an important demonstration of Allied commitment to the Alliance and a more equitable burden-sharing.

- said the source of the channel, adding that the formula for new costs agreed this week.

According to the data provided, the United States has achieved a reduction in NATO funding costs from 22% to about 16%, thereby almost approaching Germany, which spends 14,8% on it.

The United States intends to use the saved funds to finance other Pentagon programs in Europe, including to support Ukraine and Georgia.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump has repeatedly stated that the United States is spending too much money to defend Europe and has promised to achieve a significant reduction in US financial investments in NATO.

      According to CNN, received from a senior NATO official on condition of anonymity

      The media have never been distinguished by a desire to present reliable information, but recently there has been too much.
      And if according to the article, then NATO exists on the principle that if there are no enemies and threats, then they must be invented, otherwise there will be no money. In general, they are tired of coming up with enemies, that’s not enough money.

          It would be difficult to imagine that they would use the saved money for agriculture or for peacekeeping purposes.

      Will not work. You can take half of NATO funding. But Germany’s military spending is in principle 13 times less than the US. The USA is their main military force. Military power is not with those who finance organizations, but those who finance and have a powerful army. And here the USA is beyond competition.

              Yes, about the staggering NATO, the dollar, the EU, the USA, the public debt (the list can be continued for a long time), they probably have been talking like half a century ago. There is simply a system such that any fool is given the opportunity to speak out as he wants. People living in authoritarian countries always get an impression because of this, but right now everything will fall apart. Normal phenomenon. All according to the rules of social psychology.

    It's not about defense budgets, but the content of NATO itself -
    This is largely a symbolic step.since the direct budget of NATO is relatively small - about 2,5 billion. Dollars. USA, and it is separated from national defense budgets, which, as NATO recommends, should be 2% of GDP.

    https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/27/politics/trump-nato-contribution-nato/index.html
    In a declaration adopted by NATO in 2014, member countries of the bloc recorded a desire to achieve defense budgets at 2% of GDP. But this is only a desire: NATO members have no legal obligations on this issue. The same is the case with the budget of the organization itself - NATO emphasizes that the allocation of funds for the activities of the bloc is not the direct responsibility of "any" member country.

    Old Europeans are realists. They are well aware that Russia is not an "aggressor" for them and that the "roof of NATO" is losing its relevance. Seeing this, the Americans are shifting their bets on the young Europeans, former members of the Warsaw Pact, who easily fall for the new owner, for "cookies" from the true "democrats."
    These "former USSR", convenient for the United States, encircle the entire western and southwestern part of Russia. At the same time, the role of "center" is assigned to Poland, which they dream of from the cradle. And this will lead to an even greater split in the EU. Old Europeans dislike "recruits". Even West Germany, openly
    does not accept Eastern Germans. As a result, after "twelve" years, NATO will either collapse or transform into a new entity, less cumbersome,
    but more aggressive towards Russia. yes
