North Macedonia officially joins NATO

The North Atlantic Alliance has replenished with another member. On March 27, North Macedonia officially became the 30th NATO member country. This was reported by the US State Department.

The U.S. State Department issued a written statement by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stating that the U.S. has received a document on North Macedonia's accession to NATO. The official flag-raising ceremony for the new alliance member at NATO headquarters in Brussels will be held March 30 this year.



On March 27, 2020, the United States, as the depository of the treaty, received a document on the accession of the Republic of Northern Macedonia to the North Atlantic Treaty, which made Northern Macedonia the 30th NATO ally. On March 30, the flag of Northern Macedonia for the first time flies above NATO headquarters

- declared Pompeo.

Previously, it was assumed that after ratification of the protocol on the entry of Northern Macedonia into the alliance by all NATO members, this will be announced at a meeting of the North Atlantic Council, which is due in April. However, in connection with the pandemic of the new coronavirus, the alliance does not exclude that this meeting will not take place, as states are crossing their borders.

Recall that the protocol on the accession of Northern Macedonia to NATO was signed at the headquarters of the alliance in Brussels on February 6, 2019.

More than 10 years ago, NATO announced its readiness to accept Macedonia into the alliance, however, due to the conflict between Athens and Skopje, which erupted after the collapse of Yugoslavia, Greece impeded the process of Macedonia joining NATO and the European Union, demanding a name change for the republic.

On June 17, 2018, the heads of the foreign affairs agencies of Greece and Macedonia signed an agreement on changing the name of the country to “Republic of Northern Macedonia”. On January 11, 2019, the Parliament of Macedonia adopted a bill to amend the constitution of its country accordingly. On January 25, the Greek parliament supported the change of name of Macedonia, putting an end to the 27-year-old conflict.

                Actually to fight for the interests of the USA - it’s just before shooting.
                Here the thing is different - all these limitrophs believe that the US will fight for their interests, idolize the fifth article of the NATO charter. And here they are just so harshly deceived that they themselves do not represent. And America, drawing up the NATO charter, perfectly provided for the possibility of sending "at a certain moment" all the allies to a known address.

                Let's turn to the source

                Article 5

                “The Contracting Parties agree that an armed attack on one or more of them in Europe or North America will be considered as an attack on them as a whole, and therefore agree that if such an armed attack takes place, each of which, in the exercise of the right to individual or collective self-defense recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, it will provide assistance to a Contracting Party subjected to, or to Contracting Parties subjected to a similar attack, by the immediate implementation of such an individual or joint action, which it considers necessaryincluding the use of armed force to restore and subsequently maintain the security of the North Atlantic region. ”

                Feel where major the words?

                Suppose (just suppose, do not throw slippers) that tomorrow Russia occupied the Baltic states, Ukraine, Poland. Well, Czechs with Slovaks - so as not to go twice.
                Deems necessary or not NATO in general and the United States in particular, joint action, "including the use of armed force"? And if the return line arrives in the form of big, big rockets? And what if it inflicts “unacceptable damage” on the “decision-making center” - more than 13% of the population, infrastructure and the army (the United States itself counted - their words and calculations)?
                It is for this "hook" that the United States will cling to, so as not to go into the meat grinder themselves. And without them, no one will stick around at all.
                America "deems it necessary" to send three planes of diapers to the attacked limitrophes - the fifth article is completed.

                This is the kind of "Euro-Atlantic solidarity", this is the fifth article ....

              Between the Russian Federation and the USA, yes, between the Russian Federation and NATO, the difference in orders is in everything. And if NATO needs to destroy only the Russian Federation, then the Russian Federation must wage war with 30 countries, the head would not only have to wear a hat, by the way, this means that the retaliatory strike of the Russian Federation will be several times weaker, and in a situation when the most disarming blow is delivered to the Russian Federation, whether the answer is what it will be, start thinking shorter.

                          There was one non-human who measured everything in tanks, how did his underestimation of the enemy end, I think you know. After the nuclear weapons end, the war will continue with the usual types + probably bacteriological and chemical weapons. In this scenario, the one who will be able to replenish the means of war and who has more AUG will win.

                Of course, where is the United States to its sixes like S. Macedonia, demilitarized Germany, the Czech Republic and other Baltic states, they definitely will not disappoint.
                In April 2018, only the United Kingdom and France managed to barely dodge the joint blow of the Kyrgyz Republic to Syria, the rest evaded. A powerful alliance can not be said.
                And if NATO needs to destroy only Russia, then Russia must wage war with 30 countries

              So when Yugoslavia de facto collapsed, everyone recognized the states that arose on its territory, including countries that had friendly relations with the SFRY or where they were good to the Serbs. Serbia itself, which together with Montenegro formed the FRY (also disintegrated by now), in 1992 recognized the independence of the four former union republics of the SFRY. Although the SFRY really began to disintegrate already in the mid-70s, after the adoption of the Constitution of 1974. It’s still a mystery to me why Tito first defeated Croatian, Serbian, Albanian and other nationalists in the leadership of the country and republics in the early 70s, and then a few years later sharply increased the powers of the republics. By the end of the 80s. The SFRY, by name, was a federation, but essentially a cross between a federation and a confederation with a constant increase in the signs of the latter. And SKJ, in fact, was already a union of the Union of Communists of the Republics.

Greeks are very concerned about their identity. When Turkey was admitted to NATO, all Greeks experienced a psychosis, such as pensioners now experience from news about coronavirus. Then there was "North Cyprus", they went through another psychosis. And now a new formation that calls itself Macedonia, albeit North, inhabited mainly by Slavs, is joining NATO. Not only are they not Greeks (not Macedonians), they also declared the Orthodox Church autocephalous, although even Tito agreed that the Metropolis in Skopje belongs to the Greeks.

            Exactly. Therefore, Greece tried ten years ago to push through the European Union a law that only Northern Greece can be called Macedonia. But the European bureaucrats "blurred" this request, and then in general, Greece was driven into default.

        Boltunov (Well thanks everyone, see you later): it's all Jewish-Raika

        Do not reduce everything to 5 points.
        R.M. Gorbacheva (Titarenko) did not have Jewish roots. She was born in Rubtsovsk in the West Siberian (now Altai) region. Mother - Alexandra Petrovna Titarenko (nee Parade; 1913-1991) - a native Siberian, a native of the village of Veseloyarsk, Rubtsovsky district, Altai Territory. Of the hereditary peasants ... Father - Maxim Andreevich Titarenko (1907-1986) - a railway engineer of Ukrainian origin, arrived in Altai from the Chernigov province. From hereditary peasants.

      It’s still a mystery to me why Tito first defeated Croatian, Serbian, Albanian and other nationalists in the leadership of the country and republics in the early 70s, and then sharply increased the powers of the republics a few years later.
      For me, also a mystery. I think the question is with communist China.

      Laughter - laughter, but in NATO "addition". D. Trump "threatened to dissolve" NATO - under D. Trump, NATO admitted Montenegro and North. Macedonia, and this is only D. Trump's "first" term (may or may not be reelected ...). Who is next ? - Sweden? Finland? ... Ukraine? Georgia? - "jokes" about "rubber NATO" are no longer funny. (Moldova can join NATO, through the merger with Romania, I don't know what will happen to Transnistria)
