Defense Ministry of Estonia: Russian threat is not a game of imagination

63
Estonia fears “Russia's great-power politics”, and the possibility of invading the republic’s territory is “not a game of imagination,” RT the words of the Minister of Defense of the Baltic Republic, Juri Luik.



In an interview with the Swiss newspaper Luzerner Zeitung, the politician noted that in Estonia “they are watching very closely and partly with concern what is happening in Russia”.

For example, in September there will be a large-scale exercise, in which about 100 thousand military will take part. In this regard, Luik stressed that he was pleased with the recent deployment of a NATO unit in Estonia and that "the American and Hungarian military have settled here."

Of course, “1500 NATO soldiers are a relatively small number, but these are combat-ready military units with tanks and heavy artillery, ”the minister explained. According to him, the main thing is not in quantity, but in the fact that a message was sent to Moscow.

To the question “how real is the threat of Russian invasion for Estonia”, Luik reminded the publication of the “Russian annexation of the Crimea, the conflict in the east of Ukraine and the 2008 Georgian war of the year”, which show that “this is not about abstract fears”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has made it clear many times that he is hostile towards NATO. If Russia decides to continue to adhere to the mentality of the XX century, we will not be able to do anything against it - we can only prepare,
he said.

According to the minister, “Estonia is unequivocally focused on the West, both with respect to NATO and with respect to the EU.” At the same time, Luik expressed his conviction that the policy of appeasement would not work with Moscow.

Weakness and indecision tempt Russia more. Stability and strength is the best choice here.
he said.

              Twenty years later, the last Baltic states will end. Three of these nationalities will sink into oblivion. And the Russians have nothing to do with it - their youth is dumped in Europe. They are assimilating with the Europeans. If they do not change the situation within the country, then kirdyk them.

    “Weakness and indecision rather seduce Russia. Stability and strength are the best choice,
    he said. "(Estonian Defense Ministry)
    It was necessary to add what to be tempted by. To occupy the Baltic republics, and then be responsible for their starving population? But why is occupation necessary when in 10-15 years this territory itself will be empty under such ministers. Already today the Germans, as potential investors say that there is no point in investing money in the Baltic states. There is nobody to master them today. The entire political elite of the Baltic countries in such expressions, according to Freud, express their secret erotic desires to be under some kind of strong invader, so that at least something would pass "to eat". They and NATO need to organize jobs, because they themselves are not even capable of it. The countries of plumbers, car washes and prostitutes, here is an almost complete list of the competencies of these countries. But how much has the USSR built for them ?! What can I say?

    I think it is not in vain that they are afraid, since they themselves constitute a threat to Russia. Joining NATO, Russophobic domestic and foreign policy. And the need for Russia to eliminate this threat, although not necessarily by military methods, is completely understandable.

    This is the mentality of the 21st century.
    First, they themselves let NATO in and allowed them to conduct exercises near our borders. Thus, forcing us to take retaliatory measures - large-scale exercises and an increase in the number of troops at the border.
    And then we also have to blame us - look at what kind of Russians are bad, strengthen and train the army.
    Lies, hypocrisy, distortion of facts for the sake of oneself loved ones - all this is the European mentality of the 21st century.

    The Baltic states are not afraid of the "great power politics" of Russia, but of military retaliation for all the dirty tricks and harm that Russia has done since 1990. They inflicted harm unmeasured and spoiled a vast country that could age from the face of the earth of these dwarf idiots. That's scary! It's like a naughty dog ​​has to wait for punishment every minute, and this is doubly offensive to powerlessness, because the Baltics themselves are empty space, losers, losers, the European backyard, smelly and crap.

    "... Estonia fears the" great power policy "of Russia ..."

    Estonia should not be afraid of Russia, but depopulation of its own population

    In Estonia, the population decline since 1990 of the year was 16%. This is official data. The fact is that a sufficiently large number of the population went abroad to earn money, but since they periodically return to visit their relatives to visit their relatives, the statistics do not consider them “permanently gone”. In addition, Estonia has allowed ID censuses. Thus, a person located anywhere in the world, holding a card, can rewrite himself as a resident citizen in Estonia. Details: https://regnum.ru/news/polit/1951523.html

    The overall picture of depopulation is complemented by a significant number of suicides. Despite the fact that Estonian media try to avoid reporting suicides, it is noteworthy that every year the number of people who take their own lives is higher than the number of those who die as a result of road accidents and in case of fires, the ERR news agency reports.


    According to the UN population forecast for 2050, Estonia should lose up to half of its current population.

    And this is without any war!

    Luik reminded the publication of "the Russian annexation of Crimea, the conflict in eastern Ukraine and the Georgian war of 2008"

    But about the attack of Napoleon and Hitler on Russia, he does not want to remember? You, the Balts, need to shake and make sure that chamomiles and buttercups are sprouting on your territory, and not the NATO ghouls place their weapons, because if in case of what, there will already be no one to defend there. So run, away to Sweden and Switzerland, dear balts, this is your only chance to leave a genetic spit on this planet.
