This is what they believe are in Violation:

1) NATO – Russia relations

2)NATO’s continuation and enlargement.

3)Russian claims that NATO promised not to enlarge.

4)Russian claims that NATO has ignored its concerns over missile defense.

5)Russian criticism of the legitimacy of NATO military actions – Libya.

6)Russian claims that the Ukrainian authorities are illegitimate.

7)Russian claims that the annexation of Crimea was justified by the opinion of the International Court of Justice on the independence of Kosovo.




Starting early in the 1990s, the Alliance has continually worked to develop a “cooperative relationship” with Russia.

In which is on areas of common interest, and geared in direction of a arranged of a partnership.

Prior to the tumble of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact, NATO started to reach out, presenting dialogue instead of conflict.

Years to decades after, the Alliance endorsed dialogue and cooperation by developing new fora, the Partnership for Peace,

P.F.P.,as well as the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, E.A.P..




The forum Partner For Peace, opened to the entire Continent of Europe, including Russia.

In 1997, NATO and Russia signed the Founding Act on Mutual Relations, Cooperation and Security.

That Created the NATO-Russia Permanent Joint Council.

In 2002, they improved this partnership, by developing the NATO-Russia Council,NRC. The Founding Act can be read in the Rome Declaration of which set up the NRC, Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Since the foundation of the NRC, NATO and Russia worked collectively on concerns varying from counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism to submarine rescue and civil emergency planning. No other partner was provided an equivalent relationship.

Definitely not marginalizing Russia, NATO has dealt with it as a fortunate partner.

Russian officials point out that NATO should have been completely destroyed in the end of the Cold War, along with that the offshoot of new Allies from Central and Eastern Europe crippled Russia’s security.




NATO wasn’t demobilized until after the Cold War simply because its associates desired to maintain the bond that confirmed security and stability in the transatlantic area.

As the London Declaration makes clear: “We need to keep standing together, to extend the long peace we have enjoyed these past four decades”. Maintaining the values that has always guided it, NATO grew to become much more than a highly effective military Alliance.

Which grew to become a political forum for dialogue and cooperation.




The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation’s Open Door policy has, and will continue to be, centered on the free choice of European democracies. When Ukraine made the decision to engage in a “non-bloc policy,” NATO entirely respected that choice. Russia’s long time declaration that NATO attempted to force Ukraine directly into its ranks was, and remains, completely false. So it has been said.

On 6 instances, among 1952 and 2009, European countries desired to apply for membership dependent on a democratic method and respect for the rule of law. NATO Allies created the unanimous choice to accept them.

Russia also fell for this vision in the Founding Act. The Foundation Act was dedicated to the creating in Europe, a prevalent space of security and stability, without dividing lines or spheres of influence, along with, a value for sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of all states and their inherent right to choose the signifies to guarantee their own security.




On the contrary to those obligations, Russia currently presents itself to be seeking to reconstruct a sphere of affect by requisitioning a part of the Ukraine, protecting significant amounts of forces on its borders, and {disturbing.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov a short while ago said, “Ukraine cannot be part of any bloc.”

Russian officials declares that the United States and German representatives guaranteed in 1990 that NATO wouldn’t extend into Eastern and Central Europe, create military facilities in close proximity to Russia’s borders or once and for all set up troops there.

There was no pledge made, along with no evidence to backup Russia’s claims. If such a promise was made by NATO, it searched for cooperation with Russia on missile defense.

“In the Lisbon Summit of 2010, the NATO Elites and Government decided to develop a missile defense capability to protect all NATO European populations, territory and forces, and invited Russia to cooperate with them.”




This was recap at the Chicago Summit in May 2012. NATO also recommended a visibility regimen such as the development of 2 NATO-Russia combined missile-defense centers.

Russia declined the offers. These Summit policy riders are a lot more than “political promises”. They determine NATO’s policies. Instead of currently taking NATO up on cooperation. Russia has innovative reasons that overlook physics as well as NATO’s indicated policies.

Self-governing Russian military experts made clear that NATO’s Missile Defense Programmer can not present any threat to Russia or weaken the performance of its strategic forces. The Russian Government has utilized missile defense as an justification for allegations instead of an option for partnership.




Within researching to secure its illegal actions in Crimea, Russia bombarded the capacity of some of NATO’s functions.

This consists of the NATO-led operation of 2011 that would shield civilians in Libya. The NATO-led operation appeared to be released under the authority of 2 United Nations Security Council Resolutions,U.N.S.C.R..

The U.N.S.C,Rs 1970 & 1973, both citing Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, and neither of them was opposed by Russia.

Just recently President Putin accused NATO of breaking the promises by bombing Libya. The NATO operation associated to Kosovo implemented over 1 year ago, of forceful efforts by the UN and the Contact Group, where Russia was a member, to provide a peaceful solution.




On numerous occasions the United Security Council on numerous events labeled the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo and the mounting number of refugees driven from their homes as a threat to international peace and security.

NATO’s Operation Allied Force was launched in spite of the shortage of Security Council authorization to reduce the large scale as well as continual violations of human rights and the eliminating of civilians.

The Ukrainian president and government were authorized by an mind-boggling vast majority in the Ukrainian legislative house. Their vote was 371 out of 417 that was documented in 2/2014. This included participants of the Party of Regions.




That parliament was elected on 10/28/12. At that time, the Russian Foreign Ministry declared the fact that the elections were organised peacefully, without having any kind of excesses and in accordance with commonly accepted standards.

Along with what he stated,he, the verified Ukraine’s dedication to democracy and the rule of law. The report can be read in Russian. The parliament which Russia called reputable after that will rarely be called unlawful now.

Russian officials state that the “so called referendum” in Crimea on 3/16/16 was completely legitimate.

Nonetheless, in accordance to the Ukrainian Constitution the referendum was against the law . The concerns of modifying the territory of Ukraine are settled solely by an All-Ukrainian referendum. Crimea, a part of Ukraine, has the position of an independent republic, yet any issues concerning its authority has to be managed by the Ukrainian parliament and its constitution.




Russian leaders state that antecedent for the so-called declaration of independence of Crimea ended up being the enlightening opinion of the International Court of Justice on the independence of Kosovo.

Even so, the court stated evidently that their opinion wasn’t a antecedent. The court mentioned they were provided a “narrow and specific” query about Kosovo’s independence. that wouldn’t protect the broader legal implications of that judgement.

The court pointed out situations by which states for “independence would be illegal.”




This would probably consist that they were, linked to the unlawful use of force. An illustration of an unlawful utilization of force could be an attack and practice by a neighboring country.

Which is what they claim Russia carried out.

On top of that, the course of action leading to Kosovo’s proclamation of independence spanned decades and decades ago.

Including an intensive course of action guided by the United Nations.

Russian remarks are to disregard all of the facts.
