NATO intervention in Russia — as silent internet hamsters?

present to the public its first article on "Military Review", to expose one of the myths Runeta

Let’s start from the beginning — namely, that represents the program "Partnership for Peace"? According to the NATO website:

"Partnership for Peace" (PfP) program — a program of practical bilateral cooperation between individual Euro-Atlantic partner countries and NATO countries. This allows partners to build an individual relationship with NATO, on the basis of their own priorities for cooperation.

Based on a commitment to democratic principles that underpin the Alliance itself, the purpose of the program "Partnership for Peace" is to increase stability, diminish threats to peace and build a strong relationship in the field of security between individual Euro-Atlantic partners and NATO, as well as between partner countries .

The activities of the PfP program affects virtually all areas of NATO, including those related to defense, defense reform, defense policy and planning, civil-military relations, education and training, military cooperation between the military and joint exercises, civil emergency planning and responding to disasters, as well ase cooperation on scientific and environmental matters.

The essence of the PfP program is the partnership created between individual Euro-Atlantic partner and NATO, tailored to individual needs and jointly implemented by the level and pace that have chosen to States Parties.

Over the years, the range of PfP tools and mechanisms have been developed to support cooperation through policies, programs, plans and activities. At the Lisbon Summit in November 2010, as part of targeted reform efforts to develop more efficient and flexible partnership policy, NATO leaders decided to take steps to streamline the instruments of partnership with NATO in order to open all cooperative activities and exercises for partners and Harmonization of the partnership. In politics, new partnerships approved by the foreign ministers of NATO in Berlin in April are open all cooperative activities and exercises available in the PfP partners, some of the programs offered by the RSP, "tool kit" to all partners, whether the Euro-Atlantic partners, the participating countries Mediterranean Dialogue and the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative and global partners.

Council of the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council provides the overall political framework for cooperation between NATO and Euro-Atlantic partners and within the framework of the bilateral relations between NATO and individual Partner countries in the framework of the "Partnership for Peace".

Currently, the program "Partnership for Peace" are 22 countries.

That is, the program is aimed at cooperation in a wide range of issues with individual countries of the Alliance. As an example, admixtures of the Russian-Norwegian maritime exercise, the purchase of "Mistral" in France, etc.

Later came the question of how to be with the status of forces within the territory of another country at the time, such as exercise. If the countries of the Alliance of the status of their forces governed by the Agreement of 19 June 1951, then what about those states that are not in NATO? So there was the "Agreement between the participating States of the North Atlantic Treaty and the other States participating in the program" Partnership for Peace "about the status of their forces" and the Additional Protocol of 19 June 1995 following quote them in full:

By familiarizing yourself with these documents, you can easily see that no encroachment of NATO in the event of riots and man-made disasters, and does not smell. It is true I can say, "And this is stipulated in the Agreement of 19 June 1951". Lest there be any doubt, I quote part of this agreement:

Have agreed as follows:

Next is the actual text of the Agreement. As can be seen from the quotation, sending troops to another country is defined by the agreements. And will not negotiate woman Mary from next door, and the top leaders of the countries.

And as a conclusion — actually federal law 99-FZ. By the way, about the cleanup, which had allegedly on the orders of Putin — nonsense. The document I could find on the legal site "Consultant Plus". I am sure that if you dig, the document will appear on many websites. So:

Federal Law of the Russian Federation dated June 7, 2007 N 99-FZ "On Ratification of the Agreement between the states — members of the North Atlantic Treaty and the other States participating in the program" Partnership for Peace "about the status of their forces on 19 June 1995 and the Additional Protocol to the it "

The Russian Federation believes that the terms and conditions of import of goods mentioned in paragraph 4 of Article XI of the Agreement and designed for the needs of the Force shall be governed by separate agreements on the direction and decision-forces between the Russian Federation and the sending State.

Nothing in Article XI, including paragraphs 3 and 8, do not restrict the right of customs authorities of the Russian Federation to take all necessary measures to monitor compliance with the conditions of import of goods and means of transport provided for in Article XI of the Agreement, if such measures are necessary in accordance with the customs legislation of the Russian Federation.

The Russian Federation believes that the sending State shall submit to the customs authorities of the Russian Federation confirm that all of the goods and vehicles imported to the Russian Federation in accordance with the provisions of Article XI of the Agreement and the separate arrangements for direction and acceptance of power between the Russian Federation and the sending State can be used only for the purposes for which they were imported.

The Russian Federation believes that the customs clearance of goods imported (exported) by members of the civilian component, and their family members, are intended solely for personal use, including for the first installation of goods, made without levying customs duties, with the exception of customs duties for storage, customs clearance of goods and for similar services outside certain places or time of the customs authorities;

7) The Russian Federation also comes from the fact that it was sent to the competent authorities in the framework of the Agreement and the documents attached thereto materials will be accompanied by a duly certified translation into Russian.

So, please read all the documents, we can conclude that the notorious NATO tanks near Moscow — this is another myth, aimed at destabilizing Russia. No doubt the authors of the plan hoped that enraged people without trying to understand will carry the power in the country. We can assume that this plan failed.

PS

The agreement has been ratified by almost 5 years ago, but the hysteria about it raised no accident. Suffice it to recall how diligently escalate the situation before the presidential election. There is a lot to think about.
