Excerpt:

NATO socialists dismiss or ignore altogether the concerns of Russia over the expansionism, militarism and sanctions of the NATO alliance.

In reality, Russian diplomatic efforts to push back against NATO's aggression - and NATO's use of Ukraine for its aggression - have gone on for several decades. Russia's most sustained diplomatic push began in 2015 through efforts to have Ukraine and the NATO countries of Europe respect and implement the 'Minsk 2' ceasefire agreement in 2015 of that year (text of Minsk 2 here).

Although the agreement was endorsed by no less than the UN Security Council on February 17, 2015 (with no veto by any permanent member), three of the five permanent members of that body - the U.S., France and Britain - have encouraged Ukraine in its sabotage of any negotiations.
