Putin slams NATO’s expansion eastward – YouTube


Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has criticized the expansion of NATO eastward, saying the West made a mistake by forming a global missile system.

Putin says following the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the then-NATO secretary general announced that the Western alliance would not expand its reach. But American and European officials acted exactly vice versa. According to the Russian president, NATO always claimed that its missile deployment in Eastern Europe is to address the so-called Iranian nuclear threat. However, even the nuclear deal with Iran could not stop NATO’s anti-ballistic missile system from developing further and the body has signed bilateral agreements with Turkey, Poland, and Spain. Putin added that NATO has already installed radars in Turkey and created a missile positioning area in Romania, all against Russia.
