NATO is still relevant to some people

NATO’s original purpose was to protect member states from Russian (previously Soviet) aggression. Non-member states? Not so much. And admitting Georgia would be extremely provocative so it’s not going to happen. Presumably, the problem will go away when Georgia goes away (which is slowly happening through “borderization“).

As the transatlantic alliance turns 70, Georgia?situated on Russia?s doorstep?desperately hopes to join.
