NATO: Moscow is mistaken about alliance promises

81
Statements that NATO promised Russia not to expand to the East "do not correspond to reality", therefore, there are no contradictions in strengthening the alliance, Deputy Organization Secretary General Alexander Vershbow wrote on his Twitter account on Monday.




“Russia says that NATO promised not to expand. But this is simply not true. Every nation has the right to choose its alliances. Open Doors = historical success, ”Vershbow quotes RIA News.

He also noted that Moscow mistakenly perceives the alliance as a threat. “NATO’s missile defense is not directed against Russia, and they know it. This is a growing missile threat outside Europe. ”

NATO representative Oana Lungescu wrote something similar on the social network. "Geography and nuclear physics weapons make the threats of Russia from the alliance impossible, ”she believes.

Earlier, Sergey Lavrov reminded that the alliance, indeed, did not take "legal obligations not to expand to the East", but gave Moscow such promises orally. Nevertheless, "NATO was not just saved, but began to move to the East," he said.

They don’t even hide that they will betray, sell, throw immediately, as soon as it becomes even a little profitable ("there are no eternal allies, there are only eternal interests ...") - and still there are invariably pink idealists who recklessly trust them over and over again - I'm mainly about the Poles.

          What about Captain Blood? Sorry, he's a fictional character. Yes, the real characters of Anglo-Saxon politics never bother to comply with agreements, written or even more so oral. We are looking for a ton of examples of this in history, especially in recent history: Ukraine before and after the coup, Syria, Libya Gaddafi ... Emperor Alexander III named Russia's allies, and the allies 'partners', God forgive me, in 1910, President Taft-dollar. As if everything is so simple, let alone "dissolve" the collective farmer Gorbachev ...

      The fact that an agreement was not signed with the United States on the non-expansion of NATO to the east lies entirely with Gorbachev. And it convinces me more and more that he did it on purpose, and not in a fit of friendship. You do not have to be seven spans in your forehead to guess that the United States will not stop there. I can not imagine the same behavior of the current President Putin. As they say: feel the difference!

        Everything is more complicated. Why did we find a sufficient number of traitors, but they do not? This, you know, is not only the reason for the weakness of the system, but also its sign. Adherents betray those who are considered the weakest, least promising. The USSR has always been a weakness and in the new Russia is a miserable, practically absent system of elite formation capable of promoting the most efficient and honest. No - a mechanism capable of:
        a) the bulk of entrepreneurs act in the interests of the country
        b) select officials according to their business qualities, not personal loyalty.
        blaming failures and catastrophes on "traitors" is the last thing, you can do this constantly, without trying to come up with anything.

      Mr. Vershbow, if my memory serves me right, then the NATO bloc was created in opposition to the USSR, which led to the creation of the Warsaw bloc as a response to the NATO bloc.
      In 1991, the USSR collapsed and the Warsaw block self-destructed. The threat to the west has disappeared, so why did the NATO bloc begin to expand east without a real threat from the east. By your actions you provoked the response of RUSSIA to strengthen its armed forces. If you forgot the story, then I remind you that Hitler also had a bloc against Russia, capturing all of western Europe and part of the Middle East, and where is it now? Who comes to us with a sword from the sword and dies. {Alexander Nevsky} You need to be friends with RUSSIA and not fight, you’ll break your teeth.

    NATO promised Russia not to expand to the East “not true”

    Here it is the essence of the snickering and lost sense of proportion of the West. Not when they will not go to normal relations with Russia. Therefore, as we lived surrounded by enemies, so we will live. We are not used to it, but the West just needs to understand that without cooperation with Russia they are a corpse.

    NATO is a "garage cooperative gathering" that legitimizes the presence of the striped hegemon's occupation forces. And it does not matter absolutely what someone said and promised to whom. "You are only to blame for the fact that I want to eat"! What has any international law to do with it? Striped-eared people speak quite specifically - we have our own interests. They apply to the WHOLE WORLD. And those who disagree can - either keep quiet in a rag, or howl with despair - we will do what we think is necessary. And why are we surprised at attempts to "crush" Russia on all fronts? Russia is the ONLY country in the world that CAN really fight back the hegemony of mattress. Just because I managed not to hand over nuclear weapons in exchange for something "sweet".
    And it doesn't matter at all what the level of well-being of the people of Russia is. Now they will play on this, trying to "knock the chair out from under Russia." But it seems to me that the striped ears will not make the second mistake. They did not finish off Russia during the EBN, they just decided that it was already "all"! Economical. There will be no more options. If we allow, they will dismember and, if possible, even rekindle the Civil War so that it does not arise anymore. And what happened in 1917, why shouldn't it work in 2017?

    If NATO is a peace-loving organization, then why is it fighting around the world, fomenting war, creeping into the internal affairs of other states, overthrowing or trying to overthrow legitimate governments?

    Soon we will become richer (everything goes to this, as it seems strange to someone) and in Latin America, in Alaska, we will create a missile defense belt against possible drug smuggling to Russia. There are enough countries willing to contribute to this. And the gentlemen themselves will not, I suppose, be against it.

    I don’t understand our hysteria: "NATO is expanding, NATO is expanding ..." Yes, it is expanding. And it is expanding at the expense of our former allies and friends. Can you still look at yourself? Why did all the "friends" suddenly run away from the "Warsaw Pact", from the Union? Or maybe they were never friends? Then why cry about it? In the same way, we convince others that sanctions are harmful to them. Go explain to your neighbor that a high fence built by him blocks the sun on his site, will he listen?
    That we look into everyone’s mouth and want everyone to be friends with us. In the end, one must realize one's self-sufficiency and one's significance. Your abilities and your abilities. You have to become yourself !!!

    All that Vershbow says is just a thrill designed for the Evrokhov. And in reality: NATO is working out real-life scenarios of waging war with Russia using American tactical nuclear weapons. We do not do this. Therefore, it is absolutely clear who is the aggressor and who is not. In addition, it is NATO that is deploying missile defense systems near Russia. Moscow is forced to respond to this. But NATO’s military infrastructure is approaching our borders, and not vice versa. As for NATO military exercises, they are offensive. An analysis of military plans and exercises shows that the NATO leadership plans and works out a war against Russia. These plans include the occupation of Kaliningrad, the destruction of the Black Sea Fleet, and the use of US tactical nuclear weapons for key purposes in Russia. ”
    Russia is not preparing for war with NATO, because all the exercises conducted by the Ministry of Defense are purely defensive in nature.

    ... The main attitude of Europe towards Russia: Russia is a mysterious, semi-barbaric "emptiness"; it must be “evangelized” or converted to Catholicism; “Colonize” and civilize; if necessary, it can and should be used for its trade and for its Western European purposes; and in other matters it must be weakened in every way. How?

    Involving her at a disadvantageous moment in the wars that were devastating for her; if possible, then by dividing it into small states; if possible, then by reducing its population; if possible, by planting revolutions and civil wars in it; and then by introducing into Russia an international “behind the scenes”, stubbornly imposing on the Russian people unbearable West European forms of the republic, democracy and federalism, its political and diplomatic isolation, relentless denunciation of its alleged “imperialism”, its imaginary “reactionaryness”, its “uncivilized” and "aggressiveness."

    the alliance didn’t take “legal obligations will not expand to the East”

    Did Russia take legal obligations on abandonment of its zone of occupation of Germanythat she was entitled to under the Potsdam agreement? Let them show! But nothing, all in words. If we move to the legal basis, then let Germany prepare bases for Russian troops. By the same decisions, legally, Germany has no right to have either an army or a war industry — let it be liquidated immediately.
    Lawyers dblny, damn it.

I just want to ask "Hey, ghoul, who are you anyway ??????????" and "Did you teach history at all, you ignoramus?" am angry

    Well, yes, tension is growing in Malaysia and Indonesia, so NATO is building up its structures in Poland and LaLes. Very logical and, most importantly, convincing. Tell this to your granddaughter, sir, she might be able to believe it. stop

    In practical terms, NATO's eastward expansion should be understood to mean taking full control of the USSR's raw materials. In political terms, the "igilization" of the raw material countries is taking place. destruction of the sovereignty of states and depriving the population of bonuses from the sale of raw materials to the West.

    “Russia says that NATO promised not to expand. But this is simply not true .... - RIA Novosti quoted Vershbow as saying.

    The FASHINGTON SCAMS knew that the promises given to a fool who, by the will of fate, had appeared at the top of power and imagined himself a great politician, were NOT MANDATORY! Who then will seriously take the lamentations of this semi-literate labeled Judas, who has ruined a huge country, who can’t say two Russian words competently, so as not to be an object of ridicule!

    "... NATO spokesman Oana Lungescu:" The geography and physics of nuclear weapons make threats to Russia from the alliance impossible "is an absolute nonsense.

    And one more thing ... At the stage of relations between the West and the USSR / Russia, our leaders believed the verbal promises of the West "not to expand eastward." They believed that they were dealing with gentlemen, but in fact these "gentlemen" turned out to be, to put it mildly, deceivers.

    If NATO considers itself the most powerful military organization, then why should they expand?

    And why is expansion, in a strange way, not going towards Africa, but going towards Russia? And why are missile defense facilities being built on the border with Russia? Why not on the trajectory of mythical North Korean missiles? How will Euro missile defense protect the US from the terrible Kim Jong-un if its missiles fly over the Pacific Ocean? And Iran, if anything, will launch a missile strike against Israel; Does he want to sell gas to Europe, and not launch rockets? It can be seen that everything is sewn with white thread.

    And, most importantly, this specialist did not attend the 1990 negotiations; he has no right to judge what was promised and what was not.
