NATO wants to move faster to the borders of Russia

The Baltic countries on Wednesday signed a political agreement on the rapid and simplified movement of NATO forces in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, reports with reference to the press service of the Estonian Defense Ministry.

The joint communiqué aims to achieve by June the capacity to take on NATO rapid response units during 24 hours and pre-deployment parts within 48 hours,
said the signing of the Minister of Defense of Estonia Margus Tsahkna (Margus Tsahkna).

He stressed that "the bureaucracy and borders of the allied states should not become an obstacle to the readiness and rapid movement of NATO allied forces."

According to the deputy director of the Institute of Political and Military Analysis, Alexander Khramchikhin, this technical agreement is “the Baltic countries have been in the alliance for 13 for years, and now they will actually fulfill what they are in NATO for.”

In Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, NATO bases have never been, the entire infrastructure there is not ready for this. That is, if today it is necessary to transfer troops to the Baltic countries for a quick response to the “Russian threat”, they will not be able to accept them. Previously, it was all at the level of theory. Obviously, the appropriate infrastructure will now be developed. That is, this procedure will be launched,
said the expert.

            To get to the Volga - you must first cross the Russian border. In modern warfare, there are a lot of 24 and 48 hours, it’s like the moon. They scare not Russia but themselves. What the Russian VKS did against the IGL, there was still paradise for them. Here it wakes up a solid HELL - tongue scratching one thing, in practice it will be very difficult for someone. Today, a tank, in modern combat, is an iron coffin.

    All these are elements of a system of rapid global attack on Russia and they continue to be deployed on our borders, and not only on the western ones. Nobody is even going to abandon the plans for enslaving and dividing Russia, with the advent of Trump-pa, the financial burden on Europe will simply increase in terms of NATO content, but the concept of destroying Russia will not change. And all their peaceful assurances, as they were 200 years ago, the smokescreen of preparations for aggression, so they remained! stop

      On February 16, 2017, Vladimir Putin took part in the annual expanded meeting of the FSB board, dedicated to the results of the agency’s activity over the past period and priority tasks in the field of ensuring national security for the future.
      "" The military-political and economic rivalry between global and regional centers of influence and individual states intensified. Look: in some countries of the Middle East, Asia, Africa bloody conflicts continue. They are actively involved in international terrorist groups, and in fact - terrorist armies that receive hidden, if not explicit support from some states.

      At the NATO summit last July in Warsaw, for the first time since 1989, Russia was recognized as the main security threat to the Alliance, and its deterrence was officially proclaimed a new NATO mission. For this purpose, a further expansion of the block is carried out. Actually, it was carried out earlier, but now they have found another, as it seems to them, more serious justification. The deployment of strategic and conventional weapons beyond the national borders of its leading states has accelerated.

      They provoke us every now and then, in fact, constantly provoke us and strive to drag us into confrontation. Attempts to intervene in our internal affairs with the goal of destabilizing the socio-political situation in Russia itself do not stop.

      We see a serious aggravation of the situation in the south-east of Ukraine in recent times. The purpose of this aggravation is obvious - to break the Minsk agreements. Today’s authorities in Ukraine are clearly not ready for a peaceful solution to this most complicated problem and are relying on a forceful solution. Moreover, they are openly talking about the organization of sabotage and terrorist, subversive work, including in Russia. It cannot but disturb us.
      The FSB, together with other law enforcement agencies, with the coordinating role of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee, prevented 45 terrorist crimes, including 16 terrorist attacks.
      According to operational data, it can be seen that the activity of foreign special services in Russia is not declining. Last year, 53 cadre employees and 386 agents of foreign special services were suppressed. "

    accept NATO rapid response units within 24 hours and pre-deployment units within 48 hours

    Sounds wrong.
    ... NATO rapid reaction units must flee within 24 hours and preliminary deployment units must not reach at all ...
