  4. Obligation to remain neutral or pro-government if a civil war or a coup d'etat begins in a member country
    1. Civil war is defined as "an armed conflict of two or more semi-organized sides within one or more nations". This definition does not include an insurgency, which is defined as "an armed uprising by semi- or fully-organized forces against the governmental or government-backed authority"
    2. Coup d'etat is defined as "a hostile takeover or a attempt of takeover of the governmental powers of either legislative, executive or judiciary, or a combination of those, by the means of armed forces, military, militia, police or any other armed personnel, by an organized group stationed or operating within the nation"
    3. If there is a tangible proof, that the civil war was started as a proxy conflict by another country (no matter if it is a Member or not), all SU nations are obligated to follow the mutual defence clause
