Bombshell: NATO Confirmed that Ukraine "War Started in 2014". Who Started the War?

• By Michel Chossudovsky

Update and Introductory Note

The crucial question is When did the Ukraine War Commence? Who Started the War?

According to Joe Biden:

"The Russian military has begun a brutal assault on the people of Ukraine without provocation, without justification, without necessity. (Joe Biden's, Press conference, February 24, 2022).

What is important to underscore is that NATO's Secretary General in a formal statement to the European Parliament contradicts the official narrative. He unequivocally confirms that the War started in 2014

On September 7, 2023, NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg  in a presentation to the European Parliament, formally acknowledged that:

"the war didn't start in February last year [2022]. It started in 2014."

That was ten years ago.

This far-reaching declaration confirms his earlier statement in May 2023 in an interview with the Washington Post:

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: The war in Ukraine has fundamentally changed NATO, but then you have to remember the war didn't start in 2022The war started in 2014. And since then, NATO has implemented the biggest reinforcement of our collective defense since the end of the Cold War. (Washington Post, May 9, 2023)

Speaking on behalf of NATO, what this statement (European Parliament, WP) unequivocally confirms is that US-NATO was already at war in 2014. It also tacitly acknowledges that Russia did not "initiate the war" on Ukraine in February 2022.

"The purpose of this is to prevent war"

In a twisted irony, in his presentation to the European Parliament, Stoltenberg portrays "the purpose" of the Ukraine war,  which has resulted in more than 300,000 casualties as a means "to prevent war".
