Yeah, so NATO has been fine with Russia all the time and accepted a mutually agreed upon 'buffer zone' until some brainiac gets the idea that they need a new superpower enemy and incites a coup in Ukraine,
Russia responds much in the way that the US would respond to a crisis on their border and now Eastern European NATO members get new "defensive" weapon system while NATO amasses offensive forces all around Russia while citing "Russian Aggression".
"For the first time in our history more than 50% of people support European integration, and less than 30% of the people support closer ties with Russia," said Poroshenko. "Thank you very much for that Mr Glazyev."
Glazyev, speaking on the sidelines of the discussion, said the exact opposite was true: "Ukrainian authorities make a huge mistake if they think that the Russian reaction will become neutral in a few years from now. This will not happen." Instead, he said, signing the agreement would make the default of Ukraine inevitable and Moscow would not offer any helping hand. "Russia is the main creditor of Ukraine. Only with customs union with Russia can Ukraine balance its trade," he said. Russia has already slapped import restrictions on certain Ukrainian products and Glazyev did not rule out further sanctions if the agreement was signed.
The Kremlin aide added that the political and social cost of EU integration could also be high, and allowed for the possibility of separatist movements springing up in the Russian-speaking east and south of Ukraine. He suggested that if Ukraine signed the agreement, Russia would consider the bilateral treaty that delineates the countries' borders to be void. "We don't want to use any kind of blackmail. This is a question for the Ukrainian people," said Glazyev. "But legally, signing this agreement about association with EU, the Ukrainian government violates the treaty on strategic partnership and friendship with Russia." When this happened, he said, Russia could no longer guarantee Ukraine's status as a state and could possibly intervene if pro-Russian regions of the country appealed directly to Moscow. "Signing this treaty will lead to political and social unrest," said the Kremlin aide. "The living standard will decline dramatically … there will be chaos."
While you are chewing on that, let's look at NATO members "Aggression" on the sovereign nations....

You should at least try to not bully members. This comment was not necessary and not meant to move the thread forward.
the OP clearly noted it is a hoax, as it clearly is. You must have overlooked that part.
