Stoltenberg: Russia cannot have any "sphere of interests"


NATO opposes the increasingly common notion of Russia's "sphere of interests", to which Ukraine belongs. This statement was made by the Secretary General of the Alliance Jens Stoltenberg.


The thesis that Russia has some sphere of interests is in itself unacceptable. This would mean de facto recognition that Moscow can control its neighbors, which are sovereign states.

- considers the NATO secretary general.

Stoltenberg explained that allowing Russia to get hold of its sphere of influence means a return to the model of the world order, when large and powerful countries limited the development of other independent states. This, according to the functionary, also applies to Ukraine.

Sovereign borders must be respected, including Donbass and Crimea as part of Ukraine. Therefore, the very idea that NATO's support for an independent country is such a provocation against Moscow is simply wrong. NATO only observes the will of the Ukrainian people

- believes the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance.

Of course, such statements by Jens Stoltenberg sound extremely meager, especially against the background of the actions of the United States, which for the past 100 years has been actively engaged in restraining the development of the rest of the world, introducing all kinds of economic и political sanctions, and in extreme cases, simply invading a sovereign state.

    NATO only observes the will of the Ukrainian people

    And before that, NATO respected the will of the Yugoslav, Afghan, Iraqi, Libyan and Syrian peoples?

    Well, why didn't this NATO okay say about Yugoslavia, Iraq, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Libya and other countries that they bombed? But he remembered Ukraine. RUSSIA has spheres of influence around the world, and no matter how the United States and the West wriggle, their "train" has left ... And for the countries they bombed, they must be tried by a military tribunal. And you need to judge somewhere in Afghanistan, and not in RUSSIA or Europe ...

    He headed the youth wing of the Norwegian Workers' Party in 1985-1989. This is an analogue of the Komsomol workers in the USSR. Chubais, Nemtsov, Gaidar, etc. have become "shitcrats" in Russia, and this one does not lag behind them! Long live Marx, Engels and Lenin! Joke!!!!!

    especially against the background of the actions of the United States, which for the past 100 years has been actively engaged in curbing the development of the rest of the world, introducing all kinds of economic and political sanctions, and in extreme cases, simply invading a sovereign state.

    There, pindos`ov have more diverse methods of influence: for example, such organizations like the IMF and EBRD, which give penny loans-loans to various underdeveloped types of Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine. They are not in a hurry to return - the main thing is that our little sisters behave themselves, which they do in general.

    And this - berg - on the collar with the whole device.

      1) Probably, it was the United States in 1917 that staged two revolutions in Russia, followed by a civil war.
      2) Then, in the 30s of the last century, the same USA put forward the thesis about the intensification of the class struggle as socialism was built in the USSR and, on this basis, launched the repression of the experimental herd.
      3) It was the USA that did NOT help the USSR with the help of Lend-Lease to win the Great Patriotic War.
      4) It was the United States who ordered the planting of corn in the USSR up to the Arctic Circle, proclaimed the building of communism in the USSR by 1980, and ultimately destroyed that unfortunate Union.
      5) And after that, it was the United States and their henchmen who watered the first president of free Russia Yeltsin to madness, after which he conducted the orchestra, sat on the aircraft landing gear and said "Shtaa ?!
      6) And for the last 20 years, the United States has also been doing dirty tricks: they put a "leader" in the Kremlin, who cannot say two words without a piece of paper, and if he does, it is stupidity or meaningless words.

    Yes, I remembered.
    If we talk directly about US foreign policy, then it is necessary to begin the presentation with the adoption of the Monroe Doctrine (1823), and not "the last 100 years."

    Russia right now will be very frightened and will run away from Syria and Central Africa, and in general from everywhere. ...
    Jens barks on his own initiative, indicates his need. He understands that he will soon be out of work.
    But Jens's compatriot, the Norwegian Minister of Defense, will be smarter. She came up with an initiative that not figs for all NATO members to hang around in the air and sea space near the border of Norway with Russia. There should be only Norwegian planes and ships. And Norway itself will decide how much to fly and swim.
    The meeting on October 26 between Lavrov and the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Norway J. Støre was clearly beneficial.
    Smart thoughts appeared immediately. Apparently, Støre decided that a meeting with Lavrov was enough; it was not necessary to meet with Shoigu.
