Poland, Baltic states to take action, too, if Putin invades Ukraine, – Secretary of National Security Council

Oleksiy Danilov, the Secretary of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine warned Russia about inevitable consequences should the Kremlin decide to attack this country….

“I visited Halifax, Canada on Tuesday. We had meetings with our partners. First of all, it was Canada’s defense minister, first deputy defense minister, and the chairman of their HQ. We had meetings focused just on this – the assistance for our country, and the way they will be responding if someone goes insane – just enough to act like that in the 21st century. And believe me, the response will be immediate – they make it official – and very, very tough“, Danilov said.

…Ukraine already enjoys huge assistance from the U.S., Great Britain and Canada. And if Russian troops invade Ukraine, “Poland and the Baltic states will also have to take some action because they will realize they might be the next.

NATO members will determine what constitutes an attack amd alone will declare “what is a case of collective defense and trigger Article 5. The spectrum is quite broad. It depends on what you called an armed attack. It can be as much with electrons from cyberspace as with tank shells or missiles nowadays.”
