NATO Ready to Response if Russia Carries out a Cyberattack

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview released on Monday that the bloc might invoke Article 5 on collective defense if it decides that Russia has carried out a cyberattack against one of its members, Sputnik News reports. 

"Not automatically. It depends on the character of the cyberattack… We will never be specific on when we trigger Article 5," Stoltenberg told Axios news portal, answering a question about if the article would be invoked in the event of a hypothetical Russian cyberattack.

It should be noted that the Article 5 of the Washington Treaty established the principle of collective defense among the bloc's member states in the event of an attack against one of the allies, which would then be considered an attack against all the allies.
