As noted, this is the first time since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The plan provides for two options - the US actions in the framework of NATO and outside the structure of the military unit.

The Pentagon believes that the United States “must be supplemented by the response plans that we have for a possible aggression against any of the NATO allies.” This aggression was expected from Russia.

The new plans include the US military as the US actions in the framework of NATO and outside the structure of the military unit. The Pentagon also will take into account the possible threat of cyber attacks. “They are trying to determine the circumstances under which the Pentagon would respond to a cyberattack,” - said FP former Deputy Presidential Adviser on National Security Julie Smith. She added that discussions on these issues are at the moment.
