What is NATO?
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is a military alliance formed in 1949 by 12 countries, including the US, Canada, the UK, and France.
Members agree to come to one another’s aid in the event of an armed attack against any one member state. Its point was initially to counter the danger of post-war Russian extension in Europe.
In 1955 Soviet Russia answered to Nato by making its own tactical union of eastern European socialist nations, called the Warsaw Pact.
Following the breakdown of the Soviet Union in 1991, various previous Warsaw Pact nations exchanged sides and became Nato individuals. The union currently has 30 members.
Why is Everyone Talking About NATO?
Pressures among Russia and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have arrived at a point of emergency.
The public authority of Russian President Vladimir Putin is undermining a more extensive military attack into Ukraine except if the U.S.- drove coalition makes a few significant security concessions, including a promise to stop extending toward the east.
Russia says that the United States and NATO have consistently disregarded promises supposedly made in the mid-1990s that the collision wouldn’t venture into the previous Soviet alliance.
In the interim, union pioneers have said they are available to the new strategy with Russia on arms control and different matters yet that they are reluctant to talk about everlastingly closing NATO’s ways to new individuals.
