Wall Street Journal: 2017 Thousands of Soldiers Take Part in West 500 Exercises

60
The American newspaper Wall Street Journal reported that thousands of soldiers would take part in the Russian-Belarusian exercise Zapad from 400 to 500, without specifying where the data came from. The article in the Opinion section under the heading "Trump should take a tough stance against Putin" was written by famous American Russophobe David Satter. The author of the material calls on the American leader to “put aside” any thoughts about a new “reset” of relations between Moscow and Washington, reports RIA News.

Any compromise in the American position of deterrence against Russia will further complicate the already dangerous international situation.
- Satter sure.

The expert claims that Russia is preparing to hold the largest military exercises since 1991.

It is estimated that from 400 thousand to 500 thousand military personnel will take part in them.
- the article says. Where Satter took these numbers is unknown. According to official data, about three thousand Russian and ten thousand Belarusian soldiers will take part in the exercises.



The Belarusian-Russian exercise "West-2017" will be held from 14 to 20 September. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu promised to inform Western partners about the maneuvers through diplomatic channels. He stressed that much less military and equipment would be involved in the exercises than on similar NATO maneuvers in Europe.

Earlier, the Ukrainian hacker group CyberBerkut stated that Satter plays one of the main roles in Washington’s plan to arrange a “color revolution” in Russia. According to the hackers, the journalist lived for a long time in Moscow and collaborated with publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and Radio Liberty. After being denied an extension of his Russian visa in 2013, Satter began to actively support the Russian opposition media. According to CyberBerkut, according to his order only last year more than 20 articles and journalistic investigations were prepared in order to discredit the Russian authorities and their environment.

      Colleagues, our army has a provisional million, the bulk of the troops located in the European part of the country, i.e. in the West. And what are you actually wondering, maybe some limited units will take part in vivid battles with attacks on a conditional enemy, there the Navy and the airborne forces will shoot a little, but the rest, and even the whole mulen, are not that half laughing they will take part in the command and control school, check the communication system between the units and the Command, check with GLONASS, get on the alarm, check the uniform, tokens and certificates, well, there they will build on the parade ground at their barracks.

      Actually, under international agreements, the number of troops cannot exceed 30 thousand people, if I am not mistaken. But this is some kind of not at all interesting figure. There’s nothing to discuss.
      And the money is paid for the sensation. And with close journalistic analysis, it turns out that in two or three days we easily transfer thousands of fighters to the 500 training zone. And for four or five? And for six? Just hair on end.
      So let them be afraid.

      You are right - all the security forces will be involved in the exercises - 2 million armies and 1 million law enforcement officers with border guards. White trousers (thermal impermeability made of heat-resistant silicon rubber) will not go to everyone, because this heritage of the USSR was developed only by the 90s and did not make reserves - the rest of the OZK. This white rubber is a good thing - it doesn’t burn on a gas stove, it’s 400 degrees resistance.
