    I heard on RT before that the Russians had a deal with the US not to expand NATO to the east after the fall of the USSR. They also say that Ukraine or maybe it was Crimea was stolen from them. They have historical and geopolitical reasons for being proactive in Eastern Europe.

    Crimea belonged to Russia before the Soviet Union was created(not talking about the Crimean Tatars who got deported after WWII and to whom it actually belongs),after the collapse of the Soviet Union,Russia ''gave'' it to Ukraine,expecting Ukraine to be aligned with Russia forever.
    And yes there was a deal made between the US and Russia regarding ex-Soviet states and NATO.
    Because of that deal,Georgia was not accepted to NATO,but things have changed and im sure Ukraine will enter NATO,Georgia however will not be joining because of the current government(pro Russia).

    See it as the economic/military ''zone'' of Russia,it will be difficult for ex-Soviet states to decide their own fate,especially bordering Russia(small countries like the Baltic states dont matter).

    In these divisions, One of the divisions will be stationed with the central group of forces, while three will be with Russia's western group of military forces.
