Putin spoke about Russia's military response to NATO expansion


Russian leader Vladimir Putin said Moscow could respond to NATO's eastward expansion in a variety of ways. The head of state did not rule out any options for responding to the advancement of the Alliance, making it clear that a military response is also possible.


It depends on the proposals that our military experts will make to me.

- said the President of the Russian Federation on December 26 in the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin "on the TV channel "Russia 1".

The President indicated that Russia has made proposals to the US and NATO regarding security guarantees. He stressed that Moscow wants to conduct negotiations, the results of which should be recorded in legally binding documents. This is exactly what the RF wants.


We remind you that Putin has repeatedly said that the Alliance's eastward advance and the deployment of offensive weapons on Ukrainian territory are red lines for the Russian Federation. Recently the Russian Foreign Ministry опубликовал draft agreements with the United States and NATO, which reflect Moscow's demands. For example, the Russian Federation wants to receive security guarantees from the West, which will rule out the expansion of the above-mentioned military-political bloc in the eastern direction and resolve a number of other important issues for itself. If the documents are signed, a significant reduction in tensions between the Russian Federation and the West can be expected.

    We must waste no time balancing their threats with ours.
    Only their own interests can make them agree to all our demands. They should be "formed" now.
    All this work should be directed only to the States. NATO is their submissive and weak-willed instrument. It makes no sense to be distracted by his split. The eggs of all the leaders of the alliance and its member countries are clamped in the calloused hands of Uncle Sam. For this, the CIA has worked for decades collecting incriminating evidence. Nobody will rock the boat.
    I also think that the most important element now is our "dramatization" of the situation, its transfer to the "pre-war" area.
    It is necessary, as soon as possible, to get away from the habitual, measured stereotype, referring to our former "pliability", to transfer events to another, extremely serious plane. As befits the situation in which we find ourselves

    Judging by the reaction of the Western media and state managers, primarily those of the Sshasovs, the proposals of the Russian Federation will be, if not rejected immediately, then “blurred”.
    The question is, what will the Russian Federation do if the Sshasovites agree to NATO non-expansion while maintaining and improving the existing infrastructure.
    The attitude of the United States to bilateral agreements on the creation on the territory of Ukraine or Kazakhstan of military bases of Equatorial or New Guinea, for example, the "peacekeeping" forces of the UN.
    The prohibition of Ukraine and any other state education to participate in the international arms business and the acquisition of any types of weapons from the United States and NATO, to invite military experts and technical personnel for service and training, in fact, would mean the introduction of international sanctions, which the Russian Federation opposes.
    I believe that the proposals of the Russian Federation transferred to the USA and NATO are a loud, but blank shot.

      And what, did the Russian Federation promise something in return ???
      In my opinion, the demand for the enemy to move away from their borders is a completely natural reaction of any sovereign state and means only one thing: do not get into a fight, you will not get in the teeth in return.

      I believe that the proposals of the Russian Federation transferred to the USA and NATO are a loud, but blank shot.

      Yes, the first shot in the air, if you will. Yes, loud, and yes - while idle. Warning - that's the way it is at the border. First: Stop, who is coming? (This is a stage already passed with NATO) then: stop, I will shoot (this is today).
      Then a shot to kill will follow at the violator. And the West is finally beginning to understand this. They are not fools (at least the Europeans).

    it was clear to everyone, but the Americans hoped that Putin would be afraid of switching off SWIFT, haha
    if NATO wants to reach the borders of the Russian Federation, then the western border of the Russian Federation will move to the West to the Lviv region, we will bring all the Svidomo there and give this area to the Poles
