The current ‘invasion crisis’ in Ukraine is manufactured by the West and Ukraine as we have reported many times in the recent past. However, the underlying cause of this tension is the West’s insistence on moving NATO forces to the Russian border, after Moscow’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula and its support of separatist forces in Donbass.
After the fall of the Soviet Union, the West gave assurances this would not happen. Now it is very likely this scenario will come to pass.
Russia has asked for security guarantees on this issue but have been rebuffed. The Kremlin lashed out in the press today over this reality.
The United States and NATO don’t seem to have taken Russia’s concerns on security guarantees into account when drawing up responses to Moscow’s proposals, nor did they demonstrate any willingness to do so, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
“The numerous statements that our colleagues made yesterday make it clear that as for the major aspects of the draft agreements that we earlier presented to other parties, we can’t say that they took our concerns into account or showed any readiness to take our concerns into consideration,” he pointed out.
Peskov noted that the US and NATO had asked Russia not to make their responses public. “However, our colleagues spelled out the contents of those papers and in fact, maybe they really should not be [published] now,” the Kremlin spokesman said.
Lavrov stated that Russia will soon officially demand from Western countries an explanation of why they approach OSCE commitments so selectively, reported RT.
▪️ US has not answered the main question – about the non-expansion of NATO to the east; in the 90s, NATO promised not to expand its activities east of the river Odr
▪️ The OSCE Istanbul and Astana Declarations contain the commitment of any country not to strengthen its security at the expense of other states;
▪️ NATO does not mention these declarations, bypasses them and deliberately suppresses this principle.
