NATO clause

It is Article 6 of the NATO Charter that fulfills Russia’s plans. In this, as reported by State Duma deputy Yevgeny Fedorov “Disputed areas cannot be included in the coalition.” This means, according to the politician, that “as soon as the territories of the Baltic states are recognized as disputed, this will become the basis for the exclusion of the Baltic states from NATO.” But first we need a basic step.

necessary hypothesis

In order to be able to consider Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia as disputed countries, it is necessary that Moscow first cancel the recognition of the independence of the former Soviet states. State Duma deputy Yevgeny Fedorov told a Latvian media that reversing Russia’s decision to recognize the Baltic states as a sovereign state would likely create a legal basis for forcing the alliance to deviate from the 1997 borders.

Elimination steps

Last week Fedorov introduced a bill targeting the sovereignty of Lithuania, arguing that it left the Soviet Union illegally more than three decades ago. Lithuania was the first republic to declare its intention to regain independence from the collapsing Soviet Union in March 1990, having been under Soviet control since 1940. Moscow, under President Mikhail Gorbachev, recognized Lithuania’s sovereignty in September 1991. Fedorov claimed that Lithuania was Russia’s prime minister . A target for NATO, as it represented the greatest threat to Moscow, and claimed that it was “NATO’s gateway to the Baltic states”.

the threat

Fedorov threatened that if Russia decided to revoke recognition of the independent Baltic states, NATO should expel them from the alliance or accept the start of a “third world war”. NATO has not commented publicly on Russia’s potential move to revoke recognition of the sovereignty of the Baltic state. But in a speech on Wednesday, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg pledged to strengthen security efforts within and outside the alliance.

How will NATO react?

Despite Russia’s threats to NATO allies, experts told Fox News there is no chance that Moscow will be able to enforce NATO membership. “First of all, NATO will not ‘expel’ any country from the alliance. NATO is the result of a treaty, the Treaty of Washington, so the only way for a NATO member to leave the alliance is by their choice,” said the former deputy foreign minister. Defending Europe and NATO, Michael Ryan. Second, the United States never recognized the incorporation of the Baltic states into the Soviet Union.
