Zakharova: NATO exists "in a certain military-political looking-glass"

33
The leaders of the NATO countries focused on fictitious threats that do not exist, reports RIA News Comments by the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, on the results of the Warsaw summit of the alliance.




Zakharova noted that in Moscow “they are carefully studying the decisions of the summit, but even their primary analysis shows that NATO still exists in a certain military-political looking-glass”.

Instead of joining forces “with all the responsible international players to counter real threats, the alliance is fighting against far-fetched challenges and concentrating on“ a threat from the East ”that does not exist,” she said.

“The striking imbalance in strengthening the NATO flank against the unprecedented scale of the terrorist danger coming from the south indicates an increasingly obvious separation of the bloc’s policy from the really urgent needs to protect and ensure the safety of citizens of NATO member states”
said the representative office.

“The Alliance consciously ignores the long-term negative consequences of the actions of Washington and Brussels, forcing the implementation of plans for missile defense in Europe, and the risk to the entire system of Euro-Atlantic security. Meanwhile, attempts to "demonize" Russia, designed to justify military construction, take hypertrophied forms, "the commentary says.

According to Zakharova, Moscow hopes to “get an explanation from NATO representatives during the Russia-NATO Council meeting,” scheduled for July 13.

    To justify its existence, the NATE dough needs an enemy, and the microsavs scream about the threat from Russia. So they catch up with fear, on themselves!

        According to the Russian proverb, this is called playing with fire. If they play out, the fire will certainly begin in Europe, but then it will spread to the United States, where it will settle with radioactive ash. This time they will not be able to sit out overseas. Gadin must be destroyed.

    It is possible to hope, but they will carry all sorts of protection and we will not hear anything.

      In my opinion, these are all words. And on business - we were prepared for the place of Yugoslavia on the eve, but further and a hedgehog it is clear that the Yugoslav method will not work, because although the place is functionally the same, but this time it was outlined around a huge bear, and since everything in the world is relative. then they themselves turned out to be in the role of mongrels, which the bear, in the event of which, could break. Hence the current nuances with "both want and prick".

    NATO is a dog that chases its tail or barks at its reflection in the mirror seeing the enemy there. To find the enemy where he is not there is, in another way, how else to describe?

    Masks are dropped. Everything is against Russia. Everything is back to square one, 1985. Gorbachev and new thinking turned out to be nonsense. Surrounding from all sides. The next step is the money of our elite in Western banks. hi

        The "elite" will immediately introduce new taxes or hike our prices for communal services and fuel. Rotenberg's law followed. So it is still unknown who will survive whom

      Need clarification? Seriously? Who? A coalition that is slowly but surely trying to strangle us, pulling a loop around it, will we explain something? Or maybe even apologize and will no longer do so? China proposed creating a bloc with us as a counterweight to NATO - this is really worth thinking about.

    NATO leaders focus on far-fetched threats that don't exist

    Yes. And this is not a looking glass. These are systematic steps to deploy forces and assets in the immediate vicinity of Russia's borders. Unfortunately, we can only react to everything that happens only through the statements of the officials of our Foreign Ministry (patience and endurance to them !!). And of course, build up your military potential.
    The NATO summit in Poland is a gathering of a handful of senile Russophobes barking at our people, at our country. It was also necessary to try to bring together the Baltic trio Lithuania-Latvia-Estonia, the periodically unfading Petsu, the Moldovan Minister of Defense (also a zoovettechnician), nor the cherry on top of the ardent and longtime hater of Russia Matsarevich with his statements like "One NATO rotational battalion in Poland will be enough to contain a potential Russian invasion. "
    I have never heard more delirium in my life.

    NATO just needs to somehow explain its preparation for war. Nazism is unpopular, land grabbing is unpopular. Remains under the slogans of democracy and invent the enemy. Russia is not yet called an enemy (they have already prepared manuals, expecting that our troops will enter Donbass), while the enemy is Iran. ))) But this is temporary. The aggressor already sounds. And no matter what to prove, in what exactly the aggression is manifested, they cannot. It is important that it sounds everywhere, the same and in chorus. From "independent" media.))

    Everyone understands that the NATO leadership unofficially explain the new strategy primarily by the desire to exert pressure on Russia to change its policy. The United States plays the leading role in the implementation of the new NATO plan, providing about 70% of the alliance’s budget.
    To this end, the US Congress should allocate $ 3,4 billion in 2016 to support an additional five thousandth American contingent in Europe on a rotational basis. It is planned to allocate $ 1 billion. Another $ 1,9 billion will be spent on the deployment of additional American weapons in Europe, including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles , barrels and rocket artillery and small arms. For these purposes, it is planned to use some warehouses that have been empty since the Cold War. These weapons will be enough to equip one armored and one artillery brigade (about 5 thousand more each) and equipment of one division headquarters (the number of US divisions is up to 20 thousand people). Another $ 163 million will go to intensify the exercises. Well, who is the aggressor after all this?

      And they are not aggressors, they are, defenders. They come, you know, to different countries and how let's protect them !!! Look how defended recently, already liked it!
      And about taxed: do not rush, that's not all. The next steps after the Scandinavians and Moldovans are drawing into Transcaucasia and Central Asia NATO. So they are in no hurry. As long as it is possible they will break off the edges in pieces and shatter the outskirts of Russia itself.

    NATO is still exist in a certain military-political looking glass

    It does not exist, but lives. Even judging by the latest events in Europe, they did not even lift a finger in the plan to pay attention to the onset of the terrorist threat, but continue to play the party in a confrontation with Russia. The question is when will they see the light, or do we need new terrorist attacks of stunning proportions? Most likely will be.

    According to Zakharova, Moscow hopes to “get an explanation from NATO representatives during the Russia-NATO Council meeting,” scheduled for July 13.

    I think that if there are "explanations", they will boil down to the fact that Russia is militarizing the North, the Kuriles, Crimea, Kaliningrad, is not fulfilling the Minsk agreements, and other nonsense.

    Yes, they all know very well. Stupid people, I hope not there. The question is that they are fulfilling the will of the owner, and how far they can go in this. To the detriment of himself, his people and his state.

    NATO sees us as a direct threat, which their leaders regularly report, led by Obama, about all kinds of generals and ministers of defense, in general I am silent - it’s strange that for Madame Zakharova this is a revelation.

    It's time for Russia to use NATO terminology. Deployment of missile defense - turning the EU countries into priority goals. Money for the Russian threat - there is no fight against terrorism, drug trafficking, poverty, unemployment ... The wave of migrants is America's special operation to weaken European countries ... And so on ... Why is the coalition with a huge budget and for a long period of time, so and did not achieve a turning point in Syria? How many thousands of children died, dismembered into organs .. The activities of the leadership of the EU and NATO countries are not effective, more than 30% of the EU budget is stolen, "bombed" with hummers, and SUVs get stuck on the beach ... The Balts are Nazis and racists, glorification of the lost and non-compliance human rights .... Crush with facts.

    Doesn't Moscow know !? Yes, okay, suffer garbage! Either Zakharova is one such fool that does not understand the motives of NATO, or she is so stupid that she substitutes "Moscow" with her statements. But, most likely, this statement is purely for people designed, like, not all fools, but you and I know what the hell is sweeter radish!

    From NATO's point of view, they are doing everything right. World terrorism doesn’t scare them at all, if they wish, they can defeat it in a month, drive it into a deep underground and not let it out, as in Afghanistan. But with us it’s a little more difficult, the Russian bear does not climb underground, and does not want, and does not fit. Hence the focus is on us, so everything is logical, in vain Zakharova swears at them.

    And what will these explanations give to Zakharova or Lavrov?
    I have the feeling that our Foreign Ministry sometimes lives in the looking glass.
    And when something hostile happens to us, he is naturally surprised! He is so worried and wants to immediately prove to this peaceful NATO that we are harmless and good.
    Especially we (our leadership) have succeeded in fulfilling the treaties from which our opponents have already withdrawn, for example, an ABM treaty!
    Or are we so diligently fulfilling the treaty on limiting troops in Europe all these years, the Europeans are not fulfilling, and we are trying! We declare in all hearing and try! No, that would be a firm position! Choose a starting point for negotiations! No, we don’t need it, we are like an amoeba! The main thing is that no one will notice us, but kick, so let them kick! We, most importantly, will fulfill the contracts, in which no one participates except us!
    It may be enough to deal with the restriction itself!
    Empty concessions may suffice!
    Toothless foreign policy may be enough!
    It may be enough to turn a blind eye to kicks and not respect!
    Maybe it's time to start respecting yourself (Russia), because without self-respect, no one will respect you!
    Putin and Lavrov, you are respected representatives of my state. But I evaluate your work unsatisfactorily! In fact, Russia continues to lose its position, face.
