President Putin’s special military operation to defend the people of Donbas from an imminent general offensive by the Jewish-Nazi regime in Kiev is fully justified in international law by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations.
‘It is fully consistent with the military praxis and doctrine of the legitimate self-defence of States in the face of an imminent threat emanating from a neighbouring state or enemy forces’. This is according to Heinz Dieterich, director of the Centre for Transition Sciences (CTS) at the Autonomous Metropolitan University in Mexico City, and coordinator at the World Advanced Research Project (WARP).
The US and its NATO allies have been enlarging their military bloc towards Russia’s borders for almost 30 years, despite Washington and other Western European states’ commitment to the Soviet Union to not expand it either formally or informally to the East, according to the professor. These pledges were put on paper, as shows the latest revelation by German magazine Der Spiegel and the Washington-based National Security Archive’s 2017 publication of declassified documents.
In 1995, the US and NATO bombed Serbian forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina from bases in Italy and Germany and US warships in the Mediterranean, without any authorisation from the United Nations Security Council, Dieterich says, adding that it was ‘a clear act of war of aggression and violation of international law.’
In 1999, Washington and its NATO allies carried out a new bombing campaign against Serbia, which resulted in the re-drawing of national boundaries in Europe and the creation of the US ‘protectorate’ in Kosovo.
In the following years, NATO had made a qualitative leap towards the Russian borders absorbing former Warsaw Pact members and three former Soviet Republics, i.e., Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
‘The war organisation, supposedly established for the defence of the North Atlantic (NATO), grew from its 12 founding members in 1949 to 30 as of today, five of whom share borders with Russia: Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania and Norway, flagrantly violating at every step the agreements contracted with Russia in 1990-91 and the elementary security interests of this world power,’ says Dieterich.
‘In a prophetic article in the New York Times in 1997, the most brilliant U.S. strategist of the 20th Century, George Kennan, warned that expansion into Russia ‘would be the most fateful mistake of American policy in the entire post-Cold War era’,’ says Dieterich.
‘NATO’s expansionist programme towards Russia, wrote the visionary diplomat, would force Moscow to accept it as a ‘military fait accompli’ finding it imperative to search elsewhere for ‘guarantees of a secure and hopeful future for themselves’.’
In mid-December 2021, Russia sent draft security agreements to Washington and NATO which envisaged the alliance’s non-expansion, Ukraine’s non-admission to the military bloc, non-deployment of offensive weapons systems near Russia’s borders, and the return of the bloc’s European capabilities and infrastructure to 1997 levels. Moscow warned the Western states that if its proposals were dismissed, Russia would resort to a military-technical option. However, Russia’s core proposals were disregarded by the US, NATO and the EU.

Vladimir Putin’s special operation to demilitarise and de-nazify Ukraine and growing cooperation between Moscow and Beijing are ‘absolutely necessary, justified and capable of aborting these subversive strategies of the West,’ the professor concludes. Source
