    The United States will support Lithuania in case of military aggression by the Kremlin, — State Department

    According to Ned Price, an attack on one NATO member is equivalent to an attack on all. The United States approved the economic measures taken against Russia.

    The United States will support Lithuania in the event of Russian military aggression. This was stated in his speech by US State Department spokesman Ned Price.

    “We support our NATO allies, we support Lithuania,” said the representative of the State Department.

    According to him , The United States adheres to the fifth article of the North Atlantic Alliance, which states that an attack on one NATO member is an attack on all.

    “This postulate is inviolable for us,” Price emphasized.

    According to him, the proof of this is not only the official rhetoric of Washington, but also the strengthening of the eastern flank of the military-political bloc, especially in those countries that have been “at the forefront of Russian threats” in recent years.

    Secretary of the Council Nikolai Patrushev threatened the security of the Russian Federation with “serious consequences” for the population of Lithuania in response to the restriction of transit through the territory of the country.
