(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Breaking Now: Just moments ago, in a statement that received instant worldwide attention, Jens Stoltenberg, a Norwegian politician who has served as the 13th secretary-general of NATO since 2014, stated that if Russia launches a cyberattack on a member of NATO – the North Atlantic Treaty Organization created in the shadow of World War Two – Russia could “trigger Article 5” of the treaty.
Article 5 of the treaty is considered the cornerstone of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It states that an attack on one member of NATO is an attack on all its members.
The implication is that should Russia launch a significant cyberattack on the United States or any other member of NATO, all members of NATO will be obligated to join the battle against Russia.
National security experts tell us that battle could consist of cyberwarfare or actual troops.
Additionally, key members of the United States Senate have made similar remarks in the last 24 hours indicating that if Russia launches a cyberattack on Ukraine that bleeds over into bordering NATO countries, NATO would feel obligated to respond.
This is a breaking news report.
