Baltic States can “sleep well”. The deputy minister explained the meaning of the name of the strategic doctrine

Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin in an interview with Deutsche Welle broadcaster explained the name of the military exercise "West-2017", reports RIA News.


Baltic States can “sleep well”. The deputy minister explained the meaning of the name of the strategic doctrine


Fomin said that this word is not meant by Western countries and called to perceive the name of the maneuvers "not in a broad political sense as a geographical term, including ... countries of the European Union or NATO members, but as the western part of Russia and Belarus, which is located west of Russia."

He also noted that "Eastern Europe and the Baltic States can sleep peacefully."

The Russian military department has repeatedly stated that the doctrine is not directed against third countries and is planned and defensive in nature, and the statements of some politicians that a “bridgehead for the occupation” of the Baltic states, Poland or Ukraine is being prepared “have nothing to do with reality”.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Belarus also noted that the exercise will be held “transparently and openly”. Oleg Voinov, Head of the Department of International Military Cooperation of the Defense Ministry of Belarus, Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Military Cooperation, noted that the republic "fulfills all obligations under international and regional arms control documents."

    You can get to the lamppost, as you know. The West is waging an information war, and thereby turns any words and expressions inside out. There is no need to make excuses. As they wanted, they called the teachings.

      The West remembers what an attack is without declaring war and the concentration of troops on the border. From here I think hysteria.

          Yes, I generally get the impression that the whole hysteria of the Baltic states lies in the fact that they just really want Russia to “occupy” them again. I built back factories, gave money, etc. In general, as the president said, the entire triebaltic is “women with low social responsibility”!

              Alexander, what a sound call. Not all Germans still lost their memory and not all had their brains dirty. Yes, and many still remember the GDR, and remember with a good side. It’s another matter that the Germans can be freed, they won’t hang on the neck screaming, love us only give money, and they will provide for themselves. But the tri-balts want it on the neck, and even hang your legs, but do we need it ?! request

          For the West, the usual planned exercises of Russia and Belarus are concentration. As they say, what if? That hysteria. Well, our military are doing their job. And the question of who focuses Russia or NATO does not bother the West.

    Why so much fuss with these balts? The deputies of the ministers reassure them all the time, well, justification ... they will get offended a couple of times - just business! Enough to pay attention to them, they will become slimmer! yes

    Well, where is Russia to the names of the exercises, only the geographical position relative to the Russian state.
    Not like Natasha’s:
    “Spring Storm-2017” (Spring Storm), “Strong Cobalt-2017” (Steadfast Cobalt), “Noble Jump”, “Saber Strike” (Siber Strike), “Baltic Operations-2017” (Baltops), “Sea Breeze-2017”, “Noble Partner-2017” (Noble Partner), “Quick Trident-2017” (Rapid Trident), “Shield of the Sea-2017” (Sea Shield), “Poseidon-2017” ( Poseidon) - very creative names, PR aces work well - PR aces lol

    Why is the Ministry of Defense humiliated before the wretched? I do not understand. The West intentionally, purposefully provokes Russia in everything, and again we are bargaining with them. You will not respect yourself, no one will respect.
