NATO admitted that the decision to increase the military presence near the borders of Russia was made several years ago

The NATO command decided to expand its military presence near the borders of Russia a few years ago, and not now, allegedly because of the start of a military special operation of the Russian army in Ukraine. This was stated by the chairman of the NATO military committee, Admiral Rob Bauer.


Lieutenant Admiral of the Royal Naval fleet The Netherlands spoke at a press conference in Tallinn following the meeting of NATO Chiefs of Staff. During his speech, Bauer admitted that the expansion of the military presence near the borders of Russia was discussed several years ago and had nothing to do with the Russian special operation in Ukraine. The outbreak of hostilities only forced the command of the alliance to hurry up and further build up forces on the territory of the countries of Eastern Europe.

We discussed the most extensive reform of our military structures since 1949. Planning started a few years ago, now we are doing it

- he said.

The expansion of the military presence on the "eastern" flank of NATO is presented as a "protection" of the countries of Eastern Europe from a possible "aggression of Russia." As NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg recently said, the alliance sent Russia a "clear signal" that NATO would defend "every inch of Allied territory" in the event of a "Russian attack." According to him, the alliance is a purely peaceful organization and does not pose any threat to Russia. The Kremlin has a different opinion, all NATO's actions are aimed at confrontation with Russia, and further expansion does not contribute to the preservation of Europe's security.

      About secrets.
      The army is either fighting or preparing for war.
      And there is no need to talk about recognition.

      Maybe it's time to openly say that Russia is fighting NATO? At least if not to the world community, then at least to the citizens of Russia.

    And to be more precise, from the moment of Gorbachev's betrayal, which allowed NATO to start a new campaign to the east.
    Now there is a battle for Ukraine... near Kharkov there were a large number of NATO servicemen under the guise of mercenaries.

    Who would doubt that NATO and the United States have long been hatching plans to attack Russia, if you want peace, prepare for war! Well, if so, then this time drive the nits to the very hell, do not leave anyone alive, and in the end Poland will need to be erased as a state, and the United States will be divided into two peninsulas, everything, in a gun!

    . Jens Stoltenberg, the alliance sent Russia a "clear signal" that NATO will protect "every inch allied territories"

    But in the case of a big nix, limitrophe countries (due to their historical purpose) can be an unconditional exception to this strict rule.

      We are already doing it. At least we are in the initial phase of eliminating the "misunderstanding" problem. In December last year, the Russian Federation offered them to agree on security guarantees, and in case of refusal, promised to respond with military-political methods. They were not imbued with the seriousness of the moment and did not heed the warning, now, as an answer, on February 24, we began the NWO.

    Decisions were made in 1990
    On October 3, 1990, the German Democratic Republic ceased to exist. The former socialist state joined the FRG. The integration of the eastern lands took place in a forced mode without taking into account their specifics. As a result, the regions of the former GDR are still lagging behind the Western ones in economic development, analysts state. In addition, contrary to the promises made by the USSR before the unification of Germany, NATO expanded to the east, which negatively affected the security of Russia and Europe.

    Views on post-Soviet NATO expansion
    In the late 1990s, virtually all historians assessed the start of NATO's post-Soviet expansion as a "poorly conceived, untimely, and unsuited to the realities" of the post-Cold War period. J. Gaddis remarked that he did not remember another equally unanimous opposition of historians to the announced political initiatives. From his point of view, expansion violated the principles of common sense that should underlie any grand strategy.

    And in our understanding, security was violated even then. And even then the plans that we see today were signed.

    "Dagger" at NATO headquarters in Brussels? There is no adequate answer to this; you cannot start a nuclear war. And Western news publications will come out about the attack of unknown terrorists, so as not to be "faced in the dirt."

    I would like to note that this movement began in the 90s. In the 2010s, this was presented in the form of exercises, already then focusing on the refusal to take further action against our country. But let me note that it was they who at one time carried out aggression against the countries of Eastern Europe, only no one then paid attention to this. Today they are an exploited sector of the EU. So who is showing aggression is an open question.
