Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has moved quickly as Russian soldiers entered the capital on the third night of the invasion on Friday night.  President Zelensky and many citizens of Ukraine have remained defiant and seem determined to make a last stand in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv.

Russian President Vladimir Putin promised ‘consequences greater than any of you have faced in history’ if outside countries attempt to interfere in the conflict.

NATO countries, in a move that defies the Russian President’s warning, promised to send more weapons to the Ukrainine yesterday as they struggle to retain control of the Ukrainian capital.

For the first time in history, NATO also activated its response force yesterday as it continues to send thousands of troops to NATO countries to bolster their defenses as fears mount that Russia will not stop at Ukraine and that the conflict will spill over in to neighboring countries.

Today, the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, warned that NATO would respond with a counter attack if Russia attempts to make an armed incursion in to NATO countries.  The Epoch Times Reports



“Jens Stoltenberg, the Secretary General of NATO, has warned Russia that if Moscow’s attack against Ukraine spills over into other European nations who are member states of NATO, it will force the intergovernmental military alliance to take counteraction.

“For NATO Allies, we provide the absolute security guarantees under the Washington Treaty Article 5. An attack on one will be regarded as an attack on all,” Stoltenberg said in a Feb. 25 press conference.

“And we are clear on this distinction because it is important to make sure that we don’t have an even bigger crisis in Europe where Russia challenge, or is threatening, or attacking any NATO allied country.”

Cyber attacks on NATO nations can also trigger Article 5, Stoltenberg stated. NATO is presently focused on “strengthening our cyber defenses” and providing support to Ukraine, he added.”
