The Foreign Ministry reminded Lithuania of the consequences of placing Patriot air defense system

81
Director of the Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control at the Foreign Ministry, Mikhail Ulyanov, commented on the words of Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite about the expediency of deploying American Patriot air defense systems in the Baltic. He said that the deployment of missile defense could lead to an escalation of tension in the Baltic States, reports RIA News

We remind you that on Thursday Grybauskaite attended the NATO Air Force Tobruq legacy 2017 exercises in Siauliai. In her speech, the Lithuanian president stated the need for a permanent presence of US anti-aircraft missile systems in the Baltic States. According to her, this would provide "a higher level of security to all our countries."

The Foreign Ministry reminded Lithuania of the consequences of placing Patriot air defense system


This statement testifies to the continuation of the line of Vilnius on the escalation of tension and the build-up of armaments, and not even of their own, but belonging to third countries in the immediate vicinity of the Russian borders
- said Ulyanov
It is not clear how this can contribute to strengthening security in the Baltic region, including the security of Lithuania itself. The effect of the implementation of such appeals would certainly be the opposite: after all, in international relations, including the military sphere, any action gives rise to opposition. Apparently, the Lithuanian leadership has few negative consequences for the state of affairs in Europe caused by the creation of missile defense facilities in Romania and Poland, and it would like to aggravate the situation.


This situation was commented on at the Russian Embassy in Vilnius. The statement says that the deployment of American Patriot missile systems on a permanent basis in Lithuania threatens the security of Russia

Intimidating the population of the country with an "aggressive Kremlin", official Vilnius, apparently, would be ready to provide the territory of Lithuania, and on a permanent and long-term basis, for foreign arms and troops, which could potentially harm Russia and create, as they say, by proxy threat to her safety
- Interfax was told in the press service of the Russian diplomatic mission.

Moscow has repeatedly stressed that Russia will never attack any of the NATO members. According to Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the alliance is well aware of this and only uses the pretext to deploy more troops near the Russian borders.

        Interestingly, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is dancing very interesting - when Russia sold similar weapons to Azerbaijan and Iran, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not show much concern, and as soon as Lithuania hinted at the desirability of similar American air defense systems, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs began to throw thunder and lightning. other countries have to cover their mouths and keep quiet. But, unfortunately for the Russians, not all countries in the world have governments controlled by Moscow, like in Sarkisyan Armenia. Some people sometimes dare to open their mouths and blather against Russians. It is necessary to correct such shortcomings and put them in governments such six countries loyal to Moscow that would even thank Russia in gratitude for the supply of arms to Azerbaijan, saying that, thank God, Russia supplies weapons to Azerbaijan and has such profits, but it could supply Israel and Russia would not have received its profits. These are the rulers at the helm of the country!

          Do not shift from sore to healthy. Themselves in a commentary said that Azerbaijan and Iran will BUY from Russia similar weapons. If there is money - buy, there is no money - save up and buy. We have partnerships with Azerbaijan and Iran and Armenia (we also sell weapons to it). And Lithuania asks to place on its territory the American batteries of the Patriot air defense system on an ongoing basis. You catch the difference. If not, then this is not here, but to the Almighty, behind the mind.

              The logic here is very simple. They - NATO owe us for the elimination of the Soviet military threat. There were assurances that NATO would not expand east at all. There are agreements under which NATO troops should not be on an ongoing basis near our borders. These rotations are precisely for the reason of such agreements. Type they are temporarily, in exercises. And this Grybauskaite just offers to break them. That's what it is about. And do not drag Iran and Azerbaijan into this subject.

              Razmik, you would not confuse God's gift with fried eggs, i.e. defensive and shock systems. Again, the sold systems become the buyer's state property, in this case, the United States places its systems in the occupied territory, which are directed against Russia, while the fate of local Aboriginal people is absolutely not interested in American generals. Your sarcasm and malice would be understandable if Russia similarly installed its systems somewhere in Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala or Venezuela, which would threaten US security. The same Iran and Azerbaijan, located thousands of miles from the United States, so that the sale of Russian weapons to these countries would trigger US retaliation in the Baltic states. Mattresses sell their weapons around the world, including terrorists, but their actions, for some reason, do not raise your questions.

          Lithuania has spoken about the deployment of air defense systems, because the States need these air defense systems (and not only) in the Baltic states and Eastern Europe. Lithuania itself does not have enough money for the Patriots, and for the States it is only a convenient place for its missiles, etc. , no more . And with Iran and Azerbaijan - a completely different scenario.

                  In fairness, it should be noted that weapons are not delivered to Armenia at all for money, or rather, not for their money ..... Just as a loan from Russia, Russian weapons are delivered to Russian money ..... Armenians do not even take a steam bath about how much dram it will cost them to arm their army.

            Serzh Sargsyan does just that - he prays for Russia (most likely Putin) laughing , but it seems to me that Aliyev will not take Serzhov’s prayers into account and will cut him shortly, or rather all the Armenians who fell under the ice rink of the army of Azerbaijan, for Armenia was not in such a deplorable situation as it is now.

          It has long been rumored that the defensive (missile defense / missile defense) "Patriot", with a flick of the wrist, turns into offensive systems. Believe it or not, I don’t even know, but I think that our military should potentially consider this option.
          And the second point. Placement (OTRK) Iskander is only a consequence of the deployment of (Patriot / Missile Defense) Patriot, so let's face it - who is driving the situation and who is responding.

            I remember that during the Second World War the anti-aircraft guns were turned into anti-tank guns with a “flick of the wrist”. Although there shells and not armor-piercing, and fragmentation, but still. But I'm not talking about that. How does the Patriot missile / air defense system threaten Russia's security?

                I do not need to disturb the deep old. About the threats of the Western world, I heard enough to the crown of my life in the USSR. For me, it started on 1 on May 1960 of the day when Powers was shot down on a U-2 plane. I, six, was explained what had happened. I even, in two years, made a model of this aircraft according to the many photographs published then. Since then, 57 years have passed. Millions of people have grown up who were frightened by these threats day after day. Now, Europeans are frightened by such threats, but for them, from 1945, this is only a theory. I live a few thousand kilometers from Russia and Europe. We have our own threats here, but without Russia there has not been a single conflict since the beginning of the 50's to this day. With that, this is the most that neither is true practice. Something that I have already experienced in my own skin. Europe has its own worries, even if they gonoschas, and we have here - their worries are full of mouths. And thank you. hi

                  Israel is simply soft and fluffy, has never supplied and doesn’t deliver anywhere, the last episode voiced in Georgia of 08, who was there? and what did Israel deliver there? Or is Georgia a zone of interest for Israel? Do you have gray hair and mind ???? For Russia, the whole Bl. East is a zone of interest, moreover vital. About the Golan Heights I would like to ask how did you get them? And are they originally your territories, or were they squeezed from a neighbor? The last question, according to the events in Syria, is why Isil does not attack Israel ????? And why Israel acts by double standards like the EU, some mean green right, militants, and others not right (Assad). Is there anything to say about the greens supported by Israel, and about the passivity of Igil in relation to Jews ????

                    Georgia was not under sanctions and was an absolutely legitimate country for the sale of weapons. Israeli military personnel (I repeat those who are in active military service) neither trained the Georgian armed forces nor took part in the conflict

                    The Golan Heights were seized from Syria as a result of the war launched by the Arab countries, and even the Golan are historically the land that belonged to Israel (I’m talking about historical Israel from the time of Jesus - that you would understand). nonetheless. historically, the Golan (even if we take our time) belong to Israel. as much as the Kuril Islands or the Crimea conquered from the Ottomans belong to Russia.

                    why should we attack him? in the case of shelling from them, they receive an answer and immediately, but otherwise - you fight there - fight. This is not our war.
                    They will attack us. we will answer

                    why such double standards (at your place)? In Israel, hundreds of civilians died at the hands of Hamas and Hezbollah. including Russian citizens.

If you had a less professional attitude to the army, you should know: the setting of offensive (defensive) systems leads to the opposite answer !!!

        The other day, Azerbaijani Minister of Defense Z. Hasanov gave an interview to RIA Novosti and said that Azerbaijan has some powerful missile defense system, non-Russian, capable of shooting down the Iskanders that Armenia has. He noted that the system has already been tested and it works well. The minister also hinted it is not known whether the Iskanders provided by Armenia will work for Russia. I recall that Russia claims that even the Patriot system is powerless against Iskanders. No one in Russia has denied the statements made by the Minister of Defense of Azerbaijan.

            Not today, so tomorrow Azerbaijan will start a war with Armenia and, if Russia allows the Sargsyan, Armenia will use Iskander so that it does not look like a completely capitulated side. But I’m sure that it will not be possible to achieve the truth either - in April last year, the Azerbaijani side knocked out dozens of Armenian tanks and backed up these assertions with pictures of these tanks from UAVs, but the statements of the Armenian Ministry of Defense were not justified by anything but their own words. That’s all, even if the Armenian people are silent after everything that the Karabakh clan created with it, it means - it serves him right.

But, unfortunately for the Russians, not all countries in the world have governments controlled by Moscow, like in Sarkisyan Armenia. Some people sometimes dare to open their mouths and blather against Russians. It is necessary to correct such shortcomings and put them in governments such six countries loyal to Moscow that would even thank Russia in gratitude for the supply of arms to Azerbaijan, saying that, thank God, Russia supplies weapons to Azerbaijan and has such profits, but it could supply Israel and Russia would not have received its profits. These are the rulers at the helm of the country!

    Armenia is trying to play on two fronts — together with Ukraine, it was going to sign an association agreement with the EU, participates in joint exercises in Georgia, and teaches military personnel in NATO countries. Arms supplies are a way to put pressure on a hit .... We wouldn’t try to cunning and there wouldn’t be any supplies, or the deliveries would be balanced by the same for the Armenian Armed Forces.

    Lithuania is merely a member of NATO, and right now the USA is in full swing to terminate the INF Treaty. Azerbaijan does not threaten Armenia, only the NKR, the conflict, if any, with conventional weapons. The deployment of air defense systems and strike weapons in Europe is a direct escalation of the nuclear conflict, as it greatly reduces the nuclear balance in favor of the United States. In addition, the positions of such systems are priority for nuclear weapons. The inhabitants of Lithuania even have time for sacramental: "And we are for that ?!" will not stay.

    I do not need to disturb the deep old. About the threats of the Western world, I heard enough to the crown of my life in the USSR. For me, it started on 1 on May 1960 of the day when Powers was shot down on a U-2 plane. I, six, was explained what had happened. I even, in two years, made a model of this aircraft according to the many photographs published then. Since then, 57 years have passed. Millions of people have grown up who were frightened by these threats day after day. Now, Europeans are frightened by such threats, but for them, from 1945, this is only a theory. I live a few thousand kilometers from Russia and Europe. We have our own threats here, but without Russia there has not been a single conflict since the beginning of the 50's to this day. With that, this is the most that neither is true practice. Something that I have already experienced in my own skin. Europe has its own worries, even if they gonoschas, and we have here - their worries are full of mouths. And thank you. hi

    so say thanks to Stalin for creating a glorious state of the elect. And the “Baltic States” with its weather, for example, as a Siberian, would not have fallen on x..ren. But even if they return the denyuzhku that Tsar Peter Alekseevich paid for territory, population and cattle. The story is this - everything once comes back to square one. For some reason, the Lithuanians, Estonians and Latvians forgot that Peter I bought them with all the lands, real estate and even pets from the Swedish Queen Ulrika Eleanor.
    And not only bought, but also gave the Baltic FREEDOM. However, in all likelihood, they are still attracted to grooms and breakers to the “northern owners”. Any historian will confirm that the deal was concluded on September 10, 1721. For the territory of Ingria, part of Karelia, Estliaidia and Livonia, Pyotr Alekseevich paid 2 million rubles. At the current rate, without accrued interest, it is about $ 350 billion.
