Zaharova: Enlargement spree is the only thing holding NATO together
Nato is an organisation with no common laws and no value, Russian Foreign Affairs Spokesman Zakharova said, adding that the only thing holding the Alliance together is the ‘madness of expansion’.
Russian Foreign Minister Spokeswoman Mariya Zakharova responded to German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock’s remarks on Telegram that ‘Russia’s actions must come at a price’, adding that NATO draws its power not from tanks and missiles, but from its solidarity in protecting its law and common values.’
“What values can Berlin be concerned about that violates values such as media freedom, which is the cornerstone of democracy, and the failure to prevent the disseminatal of information?” he asked, specifically recalling the closure of Russia Today’s (RT) German-language channel RT DE.
‘Members of the Alliance have long been free to make their own decisions’
In nato terms, Zakharova emphasized that the expansion frenzy, which exposes all the evils of hegemony, has become the alliance’s only value.
“The transatlantic alliance has neither a common law nor common values. It’s all just so-called. The words, on the other hand, do not match the meaning that has been imposed on them for a long time. Instead, there is hegemony and colonial attitudes, dictation of the powerful and the willlessness of the weak. Members of this Alliance have long been free to make their own decisions.”
