”It was only last month that Moscow published two draft agreements outlining its demands for defusing tensions on the Ukrainian border,” skriver CNN i dag. ”Those demands include rolling back NATO deployments in Eastern Europe to some point in the 1990s, meaning many countries that neighbor Russia and were under the control of the Soviet Union would be less protected by the alliance.
This, along with a promise of NATO not expanding further east, is an unacceptable demand and a non-starter from NATO’s perspective. We need to join forces and not be afraid.
Putin is afraid of his own people. We are not going to abandon them by any promise not to deploy troops in Moscow.”
