Russia violates sovereignty of Norway, Lithuania and Poland

Within some two weeks, Russia send paratroopers to Norwegian Svalbard for “exercises”, and Russian helicopters entered both Lithuanian and Polish airspaces.

All three national governments have chosen to play down the incidents or (even worse) to ignore them.

Besides all three countries belong to NATO.

Why do NATO officials not protest against this behavior?

Ignoring Russian provocations will not make them go away – it will just be another confirmation for Russia that the organization does not take its defense tasks seriously.
