Another thing, Russia also has no right to tell NATO which countries they're allowed to accept, and which one's they aren't. Again, the NATO command was loud and clear that they will not be bullied to change their policy. Because if they allow to be ordered around by Russia, then NATO has lost its purpose as a defensive alliance."Pursue alliances" is not the same thing as "have their applications to join those alliances be accepted."
Not once did I call you a tankie. You completely imagined that. So don't throw around accusations of bad faith.Anyway, have fun arguing with the made-up evil tankie version of me that exists in your head, it's clear you do not intend to engage in good faith.
The top of the thread, which ironically happens to be your comment too, has the following written:
Address the user's points, not the user themselves and do not assume bad faith.
Please, follow it.
