NATO’s Article 5 To Respond Russian Cyber Attack: Stoltenberg

NATO’s Article 5 To Respond Russian Cyber Attack: Stoltenberg September 17, 2018

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that members of the organization are ready for cyber-attacks from Russia. According to him, if this happens, then, depending on the nature of the impact, the Alliance can use the fifth article of its charter. In accordance with its charter, the North Atlantic Alliance considers an attack on one or more of its participants as an attack on all member countries of the organization.

As explained Stoltenberg, it will not happen automatically, but will be commensurate with the "nature of cyberattacks." However, he did not specify at what "size" the Alliance would apply the fifth article.
