NATO in Ukraine: What Moscow saw
In recent years, Russian warnings against the Western powers crossing its national security “red lines” were usually discussed abroad in terms of NATO’s further eastward expansion, especially the possibility of granting NATO membership or a Membership Action Plan to Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin warned twice in 2021, that Ukraine’s NATO membership was not the only criterion. “I hope that no one will think about crossing a ‘red line’ with
regard to Russia”, he said in his 21 April 2021 Message to the Federal Assembly. “We ourselves will determine in each specific case where it will be drawn” ...
Anti-Russia war propaganda is ‘Made in Britain’
Truth, it is said, is the first casualty of war; and nowhere is this more true than in Ukraine. “Anti-Russia war propaganda is ‘Made in Britain’”, in the 9 March 2022 Australian Alert Service, reports that while the USA played an upfront role in the political and military machinations that made war inevitable, the UK government was working behind the scenes to construct a propaganda apparatus in Ukraine and eastern Europe, under the direction of top British military intelligence figures, in preparation for an all-out “informational war” against Russia.

Sleepwalking into nuclear World War III?
In a strategic package, the Australian Alert Service of 12 January 2022 presents the latest events and essential background on the showdown between NATO and Russia that sharply escalated at the end of 2021.
Anglo-American war hawks push showdown with Russia (PDF)
Reports on a promising, but stark joint statement issued 2 January by the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (P5), all of them nuclear-weapons powers: “We affirm that a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought”. The P5 statement is welcome in the context of a blistering surge of military-strategic tensions. We show that, contrary to US State Department and major media insistence that the issue is Russian plans to “invade Ukraine”, the underlying situation is that Russian officials believe the “red line” President Vladimir Putin has talked about has been reached, with the approach of “threatening weapons systems” to Russia’s borders. On 15 December Moscow offered the USA and NATO draft written agreements for mutual security guarantees, which were to be at the centre of diplomatic meetings on 10–13 January.

Background article reviews the broken promises and step-by-step movement towards a global showdown, ever since the first Bush Administration in 1990 pledged to Soviet leaders that NATO would not expand eastward after German reunification. We review how Ukraine is far from being a fledgling democracy just minding its own business while under threat from Russia. Also included is a bibliography, with links, of AAS articles on the crisis in Europe and around the Black Sea as it unfolded in 2021.
AAS articles from 2018-2022, showing why NATO’s eastward expansion and activities led Russian officials to assess that the national security “red line” President Vladimir Putin talks about has been reached.

A US and NATO strategic posture that casts Russia and China as adversaries to be constantly confronted, “contained”, and cut down to minor-power status was exposed as lunacy, by the Message to the Federal Assembly delivered by Russian President Vladimir Putin on 1 March 2018.

A message from Ukraine: Stop using weapons supplies and political blackmail to incite Ukraine to war with Russia!
25 January 2022—Even Kiev government officials today, trying to calm the Ukrainian population, began to say that they lack evidence of a Russian intention to “invade” Ukraine. Yet, from the British Foreign Office claiming that Russia wants to overthrow the Ukrainian government to President Biden telling the press he thinks Russia will soon “move in” on Ukraine, the drums of war are deafening. ...(PDF)
THE TRUTH ABOUT UKRAINE: Natalia Vitrenko, Chairwoman, Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine (PSPU)
Natalia Vitrenko (Ukraine), Chairwoman, Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine (PSPU):
“Ukraine’s Role in Present World Affairs”.
The Schiller Institute held an international online conference on Saturday, 19 February 2022 to reassert the very sane declaration, “A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought,” by the five nuclear powers and permanent members of the UN Security Council, which they affirmed in a joint statement on Jan. 3 of this year. The conference presents a solution to the current crisis: the establishment of a new security architecture that guarantees all nations the right to security, and to economic and cultural development. To do that, a dialogue about the causes and the cures of the current crisis is urgent.
