Vladimir Putin's never really been a fan of NATO, but a recent executive order outlining Russia's upcoming priorities defines the Western military alliance as a threat.
Relations weren't helped after last year's tug of war between Ukraine and Russia. Many NATO countries came out on Ukraine's side in the conflict, including the U.S., and the organization even suspended cooperation with Russia for a time. (Video via BBC)
NATO last expanded in 2009, adding Albania and Croatia to its 12 other members.
NATO has yet to respond to the document. Recently, Russia has often found itself at odds with NATO countries over its approach to Syria. It's still not clear if Putin's order will affect the response to that conflict. (Video via Alikhbaria Syria)
