NATO Allies Convene Amidst Russian Invasion of Ukraine

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas called for consultations under Article 4 of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Smaller NATO allies closer to Ukraine are concerned that the integrity of their own borders could be at risk if Russia’s invasion persists or expands into the surrounding territories. Article 4 reads: “The Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened.”
