NATO Threatens to Fight Russia if its Weapon Supply Line to Ukraine is Attacked

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has warned that the slightest provocation from Russia will dangerously escalate the War ravaging Europe.

NATO said it will keep supplying weapons and humanitarian services to Ukraine to help the country defend itself against the aggressor. This is inline with the rights to self defence enshrined in the United Nations charter.

“If there is any attack against any NATO country, NATO territory, that will trigger Article 5,” Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with CBC News.

Article 5 is a self-defence provision in NATO’s founding treaty, which states that an attack on one NATO member is an attack on all 30 member countries.
I’m absolutely convinced President Putin knows this and we are removing any room for miscalculation, misunderstanding about our commitment to defend every inch of NATO territory,” Stoltenberg said.
NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg also said there’s a clear distinction between supply lines inside Ukraine and those operating outside of it.
“There is a war going on in Ukraine and, of course, supply lines inside Ukraine can be attacked,” he said.
Stoltenberg said NATO’s message to Russia is that “they have to end the war, that we will continue to support Ukraine and that we continue to impose unprecedented sanctions.”
Jens Stoltenberg made these remarks Tuesday in an interview with CBC News as he, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the leaders of Spain and Latvia visited NATO’s base and training range at Adazi, outside Latvia’s capital Riga.
