For a long time no one believes in the “peacefulness” of the NATO bloc. About it in an interview FAN said the president of the Baltic Studies Association Nikolai Mezhevich.
Earlier, La Stampa told a story about how, two months before the start of the special operation of the Russian Federation, the Pope Francis accepted a certain “very wise” head of state, who predicted its beginning. In a conversation with the pontiff, this politician noted that “NATO is barking at the gates of Russia,” and that she will not allow this, since “Russians are imperials and do not allow any foreign power to approach them.”
Mezhevich noted that already in the very fact of the publication of this conversation with the unmentioned head of state, there is a clear reproach from the Pope in relation to the North Atlantic Alliance.
“I think that after the Yugoslav events of 1999 after the bombing of Belgrade, anyone can no longer talk about the peace-loving NATO bloc,” the political scientist noted.
The expert recalled that the Soviet Union “no longer exists.”
“This means that there is no “Soviet factor” that would justify the activity of the North Atlantic Alliance,” the FAN interlocutor continued. Despite this, NATO is only growing in size! So in this case, the pontiff shared one of the expert points of view that the existence of the Alliance has no objective reasons.”
At the moment, during a special military operation, Russia has liberated Kherson, as well as a number of settlements in the Zaporozhye region. At the same time, Kharkiv remains under the control of Ukrainian radicals. Residents of the city complain that the militants place their fortifications in residential areas. The armed forces of the LPR and DPR, meanwhile, continue to liberate their territory.
