Russia does not trust NATO

Russia does not trust NATO

NATO members have already stepped up their support for Kiev, fearing a Russian invasion of Ukraine. They are sending additional troops and military equipment to Ukraine. NATO says such steps are being taken in response to the growing Russian military presence on the Ukrainian border. Russia, on the other hand, claims that such measures are necessary to protect important security interests. Russia has blamed NATO for undermining regional security.

In 1949, NATO started its military alliance with 12 countries including United States, Canada, United Kingdom and France. The countries promised to extend a helping hand in the event of an armed attack on a member state. In the post-war period, the military alliance was formed primarily to prevent Russia (the former Soviet Union) from expanding into Europe. In response, Soviet Russia formed the Wars Pact in 1955, a military alliance of Eastern European communist countries. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, several Warsaw Pact countries joined the NATO alliance. At present NATO has 30 members.

Ukraine is a former Soviet republic. It is not a member of NATO. However, it is a ‘partner’ of NATO. And being an ally means that at some point in the future, Ukraine will have the opportunity to join NATO. And Russia does not want that to happen. The Kremlin wants assurances from the West that Ukraine will not join NATO. The Western world, on the other hand, does not want to assure him. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

US President Joe Biden has said he fully supports the position of European leaders on the Ukraine issue. However, the country disagrees with the proposals made by other countries.

The United States has said it will send 90 tons of ammunition, including ammunition, to Ukraine’s frontline fighters. The United Kingdom is supplying Ukraine with short-range anti-tank missiles. Some NATO members, including Denmark, Spain, France and the Netherlands, are sending warplanes and warships to the region to bolster defense in Eastern Europe. However, Germany has refused to allow the Ukrainian government to send weapons to Ukraine. They have made this decision in line with their policy of not sending lethal weapons to the conflict zone. Germany has decided to send medical aid to Ukraine without sending lethal weapons. Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macho has called for talks with Russia to defuse tensions.

In early 2014, Ukrainians ousted their pro-Russian president. In response, Russia annexed the Crimean region of Ukraine with the Russian Federation. Moscow also supports the armed Russians in eastern Ukraine. Although NATO did not intervene directly, it did, for the first time, deploy troops in several Eastern European countries.

President Putin has been claiming that the Western world is using the NATO alliance against Russia. He wants NATO to stop its activities in Eastern Europe. Putin has long accused the United States of violating a 1990 promise not to expand NATO in Eastern Europe.

However, NATO has rejected Russia’s claim. The alliance says Russia shares borders with a handful of its members. NATO has described itself as a defensive alliance.

Many believe that Russia is increasing its military presence on the Ukrainian border in an effort to put pressure on the West to take its security demands seriously.

Moscow alleges that the United States and NATO allies are supplying arms to Ukraine and conducting joint exercises. It is feared that such a move could prompt Ukrainian government forces to try to seize control of rebel-held territory. Russia fears that some NATO members could set up military training centers in Ukraine. And even if Ukraine does not join NATO, the alliance will have the opportunity to maintain a military presence in the region.
