In what phase is NATO’s confrontation with Russia? Contrary to a promise to Gorbachev, NATO expanded eastward from 16 to 28 states. A military system is built along Russia’s border. Military maneuvers with 10,000 soldiers are staged at Russia’s border. Imagine Russia carrying out such a maneuver at the Mexican border to the US! Why does the US media never mention the US coup in the Ukraine in 2014 or the US regime change in Honduras in 2009?
