    Is Russia so stupid to tolerate NATO East expansion.
    Just imagine the reaction of USA if for example as new members of Warshaur Pact came Texas, Connecticut, Nev Jersey, Canada and Mexico, and Russian Nukes were deployed in Virginia.
    Russia has the Right to defend itself against NATO aggression ( just look the huge list of all states which were destroyed by NATO in name of 'democracy' )

    NATO's Eastward Expansion Did the West Break Its Promise to Moscow?
    Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has accused the West of breaking promises made after the fall of the Iron Curtain, saying that NATO's expansion into Eastern Europe violated commitments made during the negotiations over German reunification. Newly discovered documents from Western archives support the Russian position.

    But exist Russia who does not want to have NATO nukes 150 miles away from its main cities.
    And it is a sound wish

    But many members of the former soviet union embrace nato and see it as integral to their security against russian aggression.
