Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.0 | Relevance 4.8

Russia published a draft security pact making strong demands that the U.S. and its allies have previously rejected. In the context of the draft, NATO must deny membership to Ukraine and other ex-Soviet countries and demands the rollback of military deployments in Central and Eastern Europe. The publications come amid soaring tensions over the Russian military buildup near Ukraine that has ignited Ukrainian and Western fears of invasion.
