“To kill two birds with one stone”: Trump was offered to accept Russia in NATO


Realizing that relations in the US-Europe-Russia triangle are about to reach a deadlock, Europeans began to look for ways out of the situation, often offering not quite adequate solutions.


An article was published on the pages of the German edition of Handelsblatt in which freelance professor of Peking University of International Relations Margarita Matiopoulos and former British Minister for European Affairs Denis McShane expressed the opinion that Donald Trump could reconsider the eastern policies USA and open a new chapter in Russian-American relations.

According to the authors, for this, the American president should decide on a historic step and invite Russia to become a member of NATO. Matiopoulos and McShane believe that in response to such a proposal, Putin should have committed himself to ending the aggression against Ukraine.

The article also notes that President Zelensky should agree to an exchange - recognize the annexation of Crimea in response to the return of Donbass to Ukraine without granting him special status.

The authors believe that in this way Russia would be able to return to the GXNUMX and get out of sanctions.

At the end of their utopian fabrications, Matiopoulos and McShane are trying to convince readers that such a Trump decision would be in the strategic interests of the United States, Europe and Russia: it would strengthen the transatlantic alliance, turning Moscow from opponents into guarantors of European security. In this way, Washington can “kill two birds with one stone”: to save NATO from the impending collapse and delete Moscow from the list of enemies.

The only, and most important, that the authors of this branchy “cranberry” missed was to justify why Russia needed all this?

    After all, there was such talk in the early 2000s. Perhaps this would be a good option, in terms of the survival of all of humanity as a whole.

      Such conversations were still under Gorbachev and reanimated in the mid-90s. G. Kissinger had to write in 1997 (Washington Post). Not literally, but something like this -

      Do not see Russia membership in NATO, as their ears. For not for this the block was created

      But if you really want to pay 2% of GDP to NATO, that is, to the Americans, then you can discuss it.

      At the NATO summit in July last year in Warsaw for the first time since 1989 Russia was recognized as the main security threat to the Alliance, and its deterrence was officially proclaimed a new NATO mission.

        The culmination of this rapprochement was Russia's participation in the antiterrorist coalition and the signing of the so-called Rome Declaration, “Russia-NATO Relations: A New Quality”. In accordance with it, on May 28, 2002, the Russia-NATO Council (the “Council of Twenty”) was created [14]. The purpose of the new body was to propose the development of joint consensus decision-making procedures, after which, in principle, one could expect a transition of relations between Russia and NATO to a higher level with the prospect of full membership of Russia in NATO [16].

          The Russia-NATO Council died a long time ago. He never had the goal of full accession of the Russian Federation to NATO.

          This Act defines the goals and mechanism of consultation, cooperation, joint decision-making and joint action that will constitute the core of the mutual relations between NATO and Russia.

    ... Freelance professor at Peking University of International Relations Margarita Matiopoulos and former British Minister for European Affairs Denis McShane ......
    ... the American president should decide on a historic step and invite Russia to become a member of NATO ....... in response to such a proposal, Putin would have to commit himself to stop the aggression against Ukraine.

    Yeah, recourse not all retired minds return. lol Okay professor, and even freelance, what is the demand from him? But the level of thinking of ministers, although former, is indicative; after reading it, I even a little respect Kudrin. Donald sends Vladimir an invitation card, he drops a mean male tear crying and rents the Donbass. After that, cleansing in the Donbass, while "separatists, their accomplices, as well as relatives, acquaintances and their acquaintances" are hanging there on birch trees, Vladimir very quickly squeezes out or breaks up this very NATO and retires because Donbass will not be forgiven him. Donald also writes his memoirs, for Russia in NATO will not be forgiven him. And everyone is happy. drinks Just a great plan. good
    Oh yes, I almost forgot Volodimir, is he spelling it right now? This, most likely, will not have time to blame.

    ... President Zelensky must agree to an exchange - recognize the annexation of Crimea in response to the return of Donbass to Ukraine without granting him special status

    "Onizhedeti" from "Azov!" and other amazing people will meet a similar development of events with a storm of applause and popular rejoicing. Perhaps Volodimir even put a monument. winked Perhaps posthumously. sad
    In general, to offer to surrender the Donbass in exchange for the opportunity to sit at the NATO and G7 summits, sorry G8. belay Here is a thing fellow just giants of thought. winked I would hesitate to voice such nonsense on the pages of Kryzhopol News. negative I would like to invite the author to replace two retirees in the heading of the unfortunate animals, and so that they themselves, preferably against the wall.
  4. Uh Spit on NATO - now it is only rich in aggressiveness, but we won’t give up the Donbass - let the Ukrainians fight!
