NATO DEFIES Putin – A Vote Has Been Reached
(WatchDogReport.org) – The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was established in the aftermath of World War II to prevent the rise of Nazism in any of the European countries, as well as a wall against the expansionist Communist regime of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). In the late 1980s and early 90s, as the USSR dissolved, some of its former members (SSRs) restructured their governments and joined the alliance. Now, more countries are being invited to become part of NATO.
Fast forward to 2022, when Russia’s President Vladimir Putin decided to invade Ukraine to return to what he sees as the glory days of the USSR, in part because of his opposition to NATO expansion. However, it seems that his threats against nearby nations that might join the group have backfired. NATO has invited Finland and Sweden to join and both appear ready to sign up and add additional strength to the fraternity that stands up to bullies like Russia and China.
NATO decided at its Summit in Madrid today to invite Finland and Sweden to become members of Nato. A historic decision that is good for Sweden, Finland and the current thirty Allies. #NATOSummit #NATO2022 @ForsvarsdepSv #WeAreNATO. https://t.co/oeYzwmpGZ4 pic.twitter.com/N0UOJa5D2S

According to the government-backed news organization Tass, Putin said Russia has no conflicts with the two nations, but said, “now there will be some tensions.” He also warned against moving NATO troops or infrastructure into them, saying the country would respond, “in a tit-for-tat manner.”
In a press release following the NATO Summit in Madrid, Spain, the alliance declared Russia’s war in Ukraine to be “a blatant violation of international law.” It further said, “Russia bears full responsibility…” for all the suffering caused to the civilian population.
