"The 5th article of the NATO charter is important for us": the President of Estonia in a helmet and bulletproof vest visited the training ground for NATO exercises

71

Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid visited one of the training grounds where NATO military exercises "Spring Storm" are taking place. Putting on a helmet and a bulletproof vest, Kaljulaid visited the positions of the servicemen of the Estonian army and servicemen from other countries of the North Atlantic military bloc who arrived in the country.


During her visit to the positions of the servicemen, Kaljulaid got acquainted with the military equipment that is used during the maneuvers. In particular, the Estonian president was shown armored vehicles and anti-tank missile systems of American and Israeli production. In particular, the Spike ATGM was demonstrated.

Kersti Kaljulaid:

It is very important for us to follow the NATO charter. It has a foundational article - the fifth. This article is important for us in that an attack on one of the countries of the alliance means an attack on the entire alliance.


According to the Estonian president, a self-defense system is being built in the country.

Kaljulaid:

At the same time, it is clear that the NATO allies have well thought out how the article on the collective defense of the alliance can be applied on our territory.



The President of the Baltic Republic noted that "from year to year the training system of the Estonian military and other deterrent forces is getting better."

Kersti Kaljulaid thanked the British and French military, taking part in the Spring Storm maneuvers, for “supporting Estonia within the framework of the North Atlantic Alliance”.

The Estonian Defense Ministry noted that "they are confident that NATO partners will always be ready to provide any assistance to the country."

    Though the mud is kneaded with boots. No rubber boots were found.
    A helmet with a bulletproof vest, then why cling to the exercises.

      And not some fashionable No. An armored body like Zelensky's would be more suitable for her.

              Actually, Article 5 does not imply the involvement of NAT in the war!
              According to this article, the national governments of the countries of the alliance have the right to decide whether to enter the conflict or not. Even if the decision is positive, the moment of inertia will be up to a week. During this time, the theater of operations will change a lot. And from a local skirmish, if the rest of the "members" are connected, it can develop into a "vigorous" war. And considering that only Turkey and the United States have a combat-ready army in NAT (let's take the motivation out of the equation).
              The Germans are no longer able to go skating in Europe. Poland, a consumable, and the countries of the Pro ... Baltic (insert the letter E or I, to your liking) do not represent anything in military terms at all ... From the word - ALL!
              The kurats are the most frightening of all, they are close to Peter, therefore they will be crushed right away. Well, the Suvali corridor! This point is much more difficult. Poland and Lithuania are mono-national states (in Lithuania, the number of Russians and others does not exceed 13-14%, with 6,5% Poles ..)

                A bit wrong. If NATO is preparing for an invasion, then it is simply obliged to salute. But a single invasion, be it the "Olive Branch" in Syria, a NATO member of Turkey, the Fifth article is not intended. That to Sultan Erdogan was chewed and put in his mouth. Moreover, I got under the sanctions

              April 4 1949 years


              Contracting parties,
              ----------------
              * Initial participants: USA, UK, France, Canada, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Portugal; joined in accordance with article 10 of the treaty: in 1952 - Turkey and Greece, in 1955 - the Federal Republic of Germany.


              Reaffirming their faith in the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and their desire to live in peace with all peoples and all governments,


              Determined to safeguard the freedom, common heritage and civilization of their peoples, based on the principles of democracy, individual freedom and the rule of law,


              Desiring to contribute to stability and prosperity in the North Atlantic area,


              Determined to unite their efforts for collective defense and for the maintenance of peace and security,

              concluded this North Atlantic Treaty.


              Article 1


              The Contracting Parties undertake, as stipulated by the Charter of the United Nations, to settle all international disputes in which they may be involved by peaceful means in such a way as not to endanger international peace and security and justice, and to refrain in their international relations from the threat of force or its application in any way inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations.


              Article 2


              The contracting parties will contribute to the further development of peaceful and friendly international relations by strengthening their free institutions, by gaining a better understanding of the principles on which these institutions are based, and by developing conditions that ensure stability and prosperity. They will seek to eliminate conflicts in their international economic policies and will encourage economic cooperation between all or any of them.


              Article 3


              In order to ensure the most effective implementation of the objectives of this treaty, the contracting parties, separately and jointly, through the continuous and effective development of their own means and the provision of mutual assistance, will maintain and develop their individual and collective ability to resist armed attack.


              Article 4


              The contracting parties will consult among themselves whenever, in the opinion of either of them, the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the contracting parties is threatened.


              Article 5


              The contracting parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America will be regarded as an attack against all contracting parties, and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in order to exercise the right to individual or collective self-defense, recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the party or parties subjected to such an attack by immediately taking, individually and in agreement with other contracting parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.

              The key is what she deems necessary.

    "The Estonian Defense Ministry noted that" they are confident that NATO partners will always be ready to provide any assistance to the country. "
    It was smooth on paper, but they forgot about the ravines - these bad partners will throw you at the very first race ...

        In your photo there is Spike SR (short range), EMIP does not have such in Estonia. They have Spike MR (medium range).

    Kersti Kaljulaid: It is very important for us to follow the NATO charter. It has a foundational article - the fifth. This article is important for us in that an attack on one of the countries of the alliance means an attack on the entire alliance.

    Are they really pretending that someone will go to fight for them? belay
    No, they will go, until the last Estonian soldier! fellow yes lol
    And so they are more like fleas used to annoy the "bear". They don't pull big. request
    And who, because of fleas, will risk their skin when the "bear" gets angry? fool
    Live with it now, fleas! lol

    Yes lord be with them laughing They like such "freaks" but for God's sake. As rulers of quasi-states, outright freaks, causing bouts of nausea even among the most stubborn Svidomites. If this continues, after a while the phrase "organs of an independent state of such and such" will be guaranteed to cause bouts of nausea in any inhabitant laughing

    Well, it can be seen, the paint on the muzzles became more, only there were not enough feathers for everyone

    We need to tie them all with rainbow ribbons so that they recognize our own!

    And then suddenly the "little green men" will disguise themselves as them ?! But LGBT ribbons will not be knitted, they will disdain laughing

    They live do not grieve. do not bother anyone. Lukashka, identically in armor, was running around with an unloaded gun, except for laughter this formidable leader caused nothing. Do you think that Utin walks without armor? So that is, armor for hidden wearing.

    Madam President, have you read this paragraph yourself? There it is written very clearly in English in white.

    They may start to fight for you, but they may not. So the expression
    At the same time, it is clear that the NATO allies have well thought out how the article on the collective defense of the alliance can be applied on our territory.
    very true. Remember the fate of Poland in 39, for which Britain and France were supposed to fit in.
