NATO, the “North Atlantic Treaty Organization”, is a military alliance composed of 12 countries founded in 1949; it includes the United States, Canada, Britain, France and other countries. Member states agreed that in the event of an armed attack on any one member state, the other states would lend a helping hand. Its original goal was to counter the Soviet Union expansion into Europe after World War II.

In 1955, in response to the establishment of NATO, the Soviet Union established a military alliance with communist countries in Eastern Europe called the Warsaw Pact Organization, or Warsaw Pact.

In 1991, the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union disintegrated at about the same time. According to a document recently exposed by Germany, at a meeting before the Soviet Union’s disintegration, Western countries such as the United States, Britain, France and Germany promised not to absorb Eastern European countries from the original Warsaw Pact to join NATO. However, since 1999, Eastern European countries have joined NATO one after another, and so far NATO has 30 member states.

Ukraine is from the former republics of the Soviet Union, bordering Russia and the European Union. There is a large population of ethnic Russians with close social and cultural ties to Russia. Strategically, the Kremlin considers it as a backyard of Russia.

Although Ukraine is not yet a member of NATO, it has increasingly close relations with NATO and is a “partner country” of NATO, which means it may be allowed to join the alliance in the future. Russia hopes Western powers assure that this will never happen, but the West has no intention of making a promise.

In February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin accused Western powers of breaking their promises and invading Ukraine on the grounds of defending Russia’s security. The leaders of NATO, America and Europe took a unanimous position on the Ukraine issue and provided various aids to Ukraine.
