And there we have it, straight from NATO's Navy Commander. I don't agree with many of NATO's past policies but this guy anyway, understands from the Russian perspective they're protecting what's theirs. Anyone in His position would.


www.rt.com...

NATO does not see Russia as its enemy but is, rather, trying to “understand” Moscow’s motives and protect its own interests at the same time, the alliance’s Navy Commander, Vice Admiral Clive Johnstone, said at a NATO parliamentary assembly in Istanbul. “Russia can develop and deploy its fleet to any areas, but NATO does not intend to stop it. Russia is not our enemy and we have no desire to get involved in a new Cold War,” Johnstone said, as cited by the Turkish Anadolu news agency.



“NATO is trying to understand Russia, and not to hurt its own interests at the same time,” he added, stressing that “some Baltic States, which are the NATO members, are meticulous about their territorial waters.”

However, the vice admiral went on to accuse Russia of “escalating tensions instead of controlling the situation,” even going so far as to say that Russia is apparently trying to create a new world order.

Meanwhile, Moscow had offered to host a meeting of military experts that would have been dedicated to the issue of security in the Baltic region, but the proposal was rejected by the alliance, Russia’s envoy to NATO, Aleksandr Grushko, said, while noting that the number of flights made by NATO’s military aircraft in the region exceeds that made by Russia’s by many times.

Meanwhile, the Lithuanian Defense Ministry released a report complaining that NATO fighter jets had shadowed Russian military aircraft twice in just the last week, although, in both cases, the Russian planes had been in international airspace.

hehe ..

Yes this makes me wonder Why this guy came out and said it now. He must feel safer openly speaking about it knowing he no longer has to worry about the fading current Administration for reaming him out for using his 2nd amendment right to do so. But, again that's just my humble opinion right.

It's just Hillary that was pushing for a conflict with Russia, her controllers and others are still playing The Chess Game. Almost if they want the repercussions such as with after Maiden(Soros backed as well as the Orange Revolution). They know that if Russia is threatened they will not let the EU, UN, etc., control the area ie. Ukraine-taking of Crimea.

So many come along and dismiss that due to some kind of invested interest-apparently around here it's because their granddad was in WWII.

I have been repeating this for years. Come down to the bottom line , Russia has it's own major problems without trying to take over another country with that countries problems.
Before you go on about Serbia, Ukraine etc. you must remember they were part of the USSR and were mainly used as buffer states if the West ever tried to invade. But being as those satellite states have got their independence, of sorts, the Russians want their buffer back again.
The other outlying Russian forces (Syria, the Med fleet etc.) they are only doing what the US is doing, spreading their influence around. NOT forming up for a fight with Nato or the US.

The truth IS THEY ARE NOT... Despite crooked hillary as secretary of state under Obama trying
to UNDERMINE the effort to KILL THOSE TERRORIST ISIS and Russian willingness to kill those
cock roaches also trying to set up a NO FLY ZONE in the face of Putin over Syria and them STILL
trying to destabilize the middle east. THANK GOD FOR TRUMP. The knuckle headed dems would have
led us to WW3 from clinton's personal vengeance against Putin. The war mongering LEFT IS DONE.!!

Let us and Russia be a family again.. TRUMP can make it happen..
