“The North Atlantic Alliance celebrates its 70th anniversary with another portion of anti-Russian rhetoric and the search for external enemies. The main challenge for NATO is once again the “Russian threat”, which the Alliance leadership uses to siphon money for military spending. ” This was stated by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergey Zheleznyak.
According to the politician: “The security of the partnership, which is so worried about the United States and the NATO leadership, depends on the Alliance itself, and all attempts to make our country a source of threat do not withstand any criticism. Russia has proven that it is pursuing a peace-loving foreign policy and never initiates military conflicts. Strengthening Russia’s defense capability and increasing the combat readiness of the Russian army, which causes nervousness among NATO generals, is aimed at protecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our state. In the conditions of the preservation of external challenges, the growth of the US military, the expansion of NATO and the new members being drawn into the Alliance, as well as attempts to destroy the collective security system, this is an absolutely adequate and logical step. ”
“The United States, as the main players in the Alliance, is trying to put pressure on its own partners in Turkey, because of the purchase of Russian C-400 air defense. The United States cannot accept the growing prestige of the Russian military-industrial complex in the world, knowing that they are losing control over the arms market. In an attempt to prevent the strengthening of Russia, the United States continues to threaten our country economically, intending to adopt another package of sanctions aimed at illegal deterrence in the banking sector, ”the deputy added.
Zheleznyak stressed: “Reflections of generals from NATO member states on the possibility of a nuclear strike on our country in the event of“ Russian aggression ”calling for strengthening the Alliance are also links in the chain called“ a campaign against Russia ”. The danger lies in the fact that “Russian aggression” will be considered as such at the discretion of the NATO warriors, who feed the lies in fabricating lies about Russia and intimidating European citizens with a non-existent threat from the East. ”
