Secretary of State of the Ministry of Defense of Poland found a "reason" to use the 5th article of the NATO charter against Russia

In recent days, it has become fashionable in the West to talk about using Article 5 of the NATO Charter against Russia. Traditionally, the United States and Great Britain acted as the “pioneers” of the topic, and Poland responded as the “singer-songwriter”, which decided to be the first to demonstrate its understanding of the “historical moment”, but with regional specifics.

It should be noted that a number of British and American functionaries simultaneously announced the possible entry of the entire NATO bloc into the conflict on Ukrainian territory on the side of Kyiv if an accident occurs at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, due to which residents of the Alliance countries suffer. This happened after a recent Modeling probable consequences of an emergency (radioactive contamination).

Wojciech Skurkiewicz, Secretary of State at the Ministry of National Defense of Poland, agrees with this point of view, but he would like not to wait for the accident at the ZNPP, but to give Moscow a "collective response" early. On August 20, during an interview with the Polish Press Agency (PAP), he threatened Russia with Article 5 of the NATO Charter for Accommodation hypersonic missiles "Dagger" in the Kaliningrad region. Thus, he found an "excuse" to invoke the said article of the North Atlantic Treaty.

According to him, NATO's actions should be consistent with the measures taken by the Russian Federation in its semi-exclave. In the event of any threat, the reaction of the Alliance must follow immediately.

As a nation on the eastern flank of NATO, we are fully aware of this, therefore our actions - in consultation with our allies and NATO headquarters - are and will remain adequate to the threats and actions taken by the Russian Federation in the Kaliningrad region

- he said.

He explained that cooperation within NATO is the basis for ensuring the security of Poland.

These guarantees have been and remain in force, and commitments in this regard are clearly indicated by our partners: individual members of the North Atlantic Alliance, as well as US President Joe Biden

- he added.

At the same time, he assured that if any threat arises, Article 5 of the NATO Charter will be activated, i.е. formula "one for all, and all for one."

Therefore, we are completely safe when it comes to all issues related to threats to the Republic of Poland.

- he stressed.

Skurkiewicz noted that a number of measures have long been taken in the northeastern regions of Poland to strengthen the defense of NATO's eastern flank. He recalled that, among other things, the deployment and presence of allied troops, as well as intensive military exercises, have been carried out. Bemowo Sands is home to the Enhanced Forward Presence (EFP) multinational battle group. At the same time, the headquarters of the multinational division "North-East" is located in Elbląg, whose task is to coordinate the actions of four joint BTG NATO countries deployed as part of the EFP in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

    Wow and mug laughing Well, that's it. We're not all in a beauty contest. Skurkevich, may the great moderator forgive me for an incomprehensible word. In general, FIG, you are using the fifth article of NATO. Nobody wants to die under the radioactive sun.

    That's interesting, but someone said to the inhabitants of Europe and the United States if NATO activates the fifth article. Then, the infliction of nuclear strikes on these territories is guaranteed.

    The hegemon thus probably puts a "fork" on us - either Russia observes certain "rules" in Ukraine when conducting the NVO, or there is a provocation at the nuclear power plant and Russia is being drawn into a war with NATO. At the same time, the Hegemon, as before in such cases, will use the time "bargained" from us to complete its preparations. When he is ready, he will use this preparation of his, regardless of the "behavior" of Russia.
    How many times can you speak? - until we force the Hegemon to retreat, we ourselves will retreat under his pressure until our very death. There is almost nowhere for us to retreat now. Everything is nearby. The hegemon is probably ready, or almost ready, to drag Russia into a war with Europe and Japan

      Russia's strike on Poland, like any clash with NATO, is in line with the plans of the United States, and will simply lead to the use of more forces against us, untying their hands for the full-scale use of tactical nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction on the territory that they "do not mind". The states "do not feel sorry" even for the territory of Europe itself. Their task is to make us completely bleed to death before a collision with them, plus - to weaken Europe with our hands in order to completely enslave it.
      We need to finally get to the bottom of WHO is organizing all of this. This should have been done immediately after Shatatov's refusal to our Ultimatum. It is necessary to force the States to retreat by the threat of a nuclear war on their territory. This is the only option we had and still have.

        The deployment of a large number of weapons with nuclear warheads in the Kaliningrad region (the more powerful, the better) will sober up many politicians, but various mongrels will howl with the last squeal (like this minister). But the squeal of the mongrels does not reach the sky.

          I do not share your optimism regarding the prudence of the Europeans. They are now killing their industry and their quality of life, just contrary to the common sense that you attribute to them. Probably there is something or someone stronger than him

          In addition, you do not take into account the psychology of confrontation.
          The Europeans will be intimidated by our missiles and will ask the Americans to place more weapons with them. Any confrontation between Russia and Europe automatically works on the plans of the Americans.
          The only target that works for us is the States themselves

            One should not think that the Europeans are so stupid and will ask the US for nuclear weapons to completely destroy them. When the Cold War is on, the situation is different, then yes, when the hot stage approaches, as it is today, everything looks completely different and there are other solutions ..
