TASS NATO’s budget is 20 times Russia’s military spending, says envoy

As a result of NATO’s "soaring" military activity an unpredictable military-political situation is unfolding, according to the chief Russian delegate
"Unstable" is probably a better term than "unpredictable."

The difference is that NATO's force is offensive, while Russia's is defensive. It's much less costly in terms of resources to defend rather than attack. Dollar amounts are deceptive. It's "bang for the buck."
"We see the NATO countries’ attempts at gaining military superiority. There is not a hint at restraint in military spending. The alliance’s overall military budget is 20 times Russia’s defense budget," Vorobyov said.
Russia will make it continually more costly for NATO to "dominate." Actually, according to military analyst Andrei Martyanov, NATO already lost dominance some time ago, even disregarding MAD, owing to advanced weaponry.

NATO, having been schooled in MMT, knows that their only constraint are resource limits, not budgets.
