Western press: Russia quickly revived NATO


The collapse of the Soviet Union buried the raison d'être of NATO, along with its main adversary. In subsequent years, despite the imitation of violent activity, the North Atlantic bloc could not fully revive as an integral organization and alliance. So it was until recently. The big conflict in Europe is just what Brussels needed to revive the unification, and now it will be difficult for the leadership in Brussels to give up the “benefits” of confrontation. This is stated in the editorial of the specialized resource OilPrice.


“Great times” have come for NATO as an organizational structure and association of states. And in this regard, according to the editors of this resource, it was Russia that contributed to the rapid revival of the alliance. Moscow allegedly made it an uncompromising desire to restore the status quo and its international rights to security, seeking respect for itself by any means. Although now the reasons are no longer important: NATO supporters and officials got what they wanted - a reason to rearm, finance, rally and attack Russia. It's like a long-cherished dream coming true.

As noted in the analysis of the situation, NATO is far from solving all problems, the attempt of Sweden and Finland to join the alliance clearly shows this. However, the enthusiasm and rise of the Western coalition is hard to miss. The time has come for the development of Atlantic cooperation between the US and the EU and, at the same time, bargaining for preferences. This is what Turkey and Croatia do, which, under the guise of common concern, are actually promoting the solution of their own problems.

According to the Western press, President Vladimir Putin is not entirely sincere in downplaying the possible entry of two new members into the alliance. He tries to wishful thinking. Simply put, despite the fact that Russia's military special operation in Ukraine began precisely because of the possible expansion of NATO, Moscow allegedly is not afraid of the accession of Sweden and especially Finland (near the very borders of the Russian Federation) precisely because the military bloc has been " dead." This is the contradiction of the Kremlin.

In general, the experts of the online publication hastened to revive the military partnership of the Western coalition. The differences between the countries that are members of the alliance are too great, a new expansion may cause the disintegration of NATO rather than a new life for it. A sustained and constantly smoldering conflict (in Ukraine, or another Western training ground), supposedly “life-giving” for the alliance, will in fact ruin both the EU and the instigator from across the ocean. What seems to be the impulse to exist is really only the inertia of the final fall. And Russia has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Don't bury NATO!
    Whatever they write in "authoritative publications": the Alliance expanded to the East, when there was no conflict in Ukraine yet, and the Russian Federation lay in the ruins of helplessness.
    At the same time, NATO had an unspoken goal: the natural resources of the Russian Federation for its own use and the subsequent "offensive" on the PRC.
    Accordingly: in the future, Finland and Sweden were also forced to ... Anschluss.
    "And Russia has nothing to do with it at all!"

    The big conflict in Europe is exactly what Brussels lacked for the resuscitation of the unification ....

    And what is "Brussels" - it's just a cabal of jackals in the service of Uncle Sam, who controls both them and the NATO bloc, which belongs entirely to him as the main concessionaire, and the fact that they are again there with someone in a bunch is their own business , but there are no complete go ... there are not there to plunge NATO into a war with Russia, and in response to receive nuclear strikes of any alignment, and overseas they have no bright illusions about this - that we have enough for everyone , and no puddle for YARS and SARMAT is an obstacle.

    But I'm not at all sure that smart people will make decisions.
    Urine (crossed out) wealth hit the Europeans in the head. They decided that it was all a game and that they were immortal.

      So the United States is playing war with us, and thereby replenishing its shattered budget at the expense of its Eurosatellites, which, in total, give Washington up to 20% of their European GDP to revive NATO, of which some part goes to the US military-industrial complex, and the rest is being stolen by multi-star generals - NATO led by Washington stood, stands, and will stand on that, and now they are "playing" with us on the verge of a foul, but without crossing this line. No NATO will stick into our conflict with Ukraine, they are afraid the consequences of the unpredictability of our Guarantor, and they will provide assistance to Bandera in any case to try to devour us, because you remember how our early leaders "fanned" the fire of the "world revolution" on the entire planet, helping China, Vietnam, North Korea, Cuba , Nicaragua, Venezuela, Egypt and other states with a variety of weapons and volunteers, so we also carried out the so-called "color revolutions" at one time.

    Something like this is, NATO is seriously activated and its members increase military spending, and the alliance will expand again, unfortunately. In this regard, we, alas, get the opposite result from the desired one ... And the US and the EU will not go bankrupt, all statements about their imminent death are from the field of propaganda chatter.
