Vladimir Putin has been warned by the US national security adviser Jake Sullivan, that if Russia “takes a shot on” NATO territory, the alliance will respond with “full force.”
Sullivan said the alliance will trigger NATO’s Article 5, which states, an attack on one NATO ally would be considered an attack on all allies which will start World War Three.
“If there is a military attack on NATO territory it would cause the invocation of Article 5, and we would bring the full force of the NATO alliance to bear in responding to it,” he told CBS.
“All I will say is that if Russia attacks, fires upon, takes a shot at NATO territory, the NATO alliance would respond to that”.
He added that the US are warning Russia directly against using chemical weapons.
