The State Duma did not rule out the strengthening of the Iskander group in Kaliningrad

49
The head of the State Duma Defense Committee, Vladimir Shamanov, did not rule out the strengthening of the Iskander group, including in Kaliningrad, in response to US actions in the Baltic States.


This creates prerequisites that in the future may allow them to create a certain springboard. We will not look at this carelessly, we will definitely respond.
- Shamanov told reporters.

The State Duma did not rule out the strengthening of the Iskander group in Kaliningrad


Answering the question whether the deployment of additional units could be such measures, Shamanov said:

Quite possible. Not only parts of units, but also means of destruction. For example, the strengthening of the Iskander group, including in Kaliningrad


Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that an entire division of the US military was actually deployed near the borders of the Russian Federation in Poland and the Baltic States. According to the Russian defense ministry, the 2-I armored brigade of the USA arrived in Poland and deployed along with armored vehicles, while the 3-American brigade remained in the Baltic States.

    "did not rule out the strengthening of the Iskander group, including in Kaliningrad."..

    On the one hand, it seems to be necessary ... purely to intimidate the EU-NATO ...
    And on the other hand ... The territory of the Kaliningrad region is blocked by various types of weapons many times, and in the event of a sudden (and it will be) the start of hostilities, these Iskanders will be immediately destroyed ...
    So in KO you need to keep weapons almost inflatable, and the main forces should be in the Pskov, Leningrad regions and other nearby ...

        In fact, such systems need to be deployed across all borders of Russia, like modern layered air defense .. And even better, somewhere in Cuba, etc. Who remembers the Caribbean crisis, it all started after the United States deployed medium-range missiles with nuclear weapons in Europe and Turkey ! The USSR responded by deploying its missiles in Cuba .. Yes, the world was on the brink of war, but we defended ourselves as best we could .. As a result, we and the United States removed the missiles!

      You're wrong. If we were Chad, then maybe. And RUSSIA is not Chad. And according to your version, in cases of a sudden attack, as it always happens, we need to give up right away. Otherwise, all armed forces will be destroyed. And then why are they needed at all. And it’s not better for us to strike first. After all, then following your logic, all the forces of the enemy will be destroyed. soldier

        From a military point of view - certainly better and much more. But you need to calculate the political risks and be completely sure of victory, because only the winners are not judged.

      And how do other areas differ from Kaliningrad. The fact that Kaliningrad will be hit, but not at others. Nonsense is simple. And Iskander is needed precisely in the Kaliningrad region, and of course in others too. But the first blow after them should be from the Kaliningrad region and not transport them from the Urals. You need to think. soldier

        In the case of the use of nuclear weapons, on Earth, possibly in millions of years, new human-like creatures will appear.
        And where to place the missiles do not decide in the State Duma.
        So do not break your spears in vain, as in kindergarten.

    Of course, it is necessary to strengthen not only the Iskanders. It will cost us many times less than the maintenance of the US Armed Forces division - let them spend it. Well, the Baltic states and EU members - “sleep well!” In a dream it will not be so scary.

      And what is there to hold back? Some miserable 500-kg warhead?
      A brigade of 12 launchers of 2 rockets of 500 kg each warhead = 12 tons of warheads immediately abandoned. Like three SU-25, or two SU-24, or one and a half SU-34.
      Now, if they announced that on each rocket there is a special warhead, then another thing.

        And what would happen then? The fact is that they perfectly know what this complex can threaten them with! However, they continue to strengthen their groupings, and I’m about this.
        .When in 2011 we just transferred this complex to the Kaliningrad exercises, they understood everything correctly in the statements of the NATO generals. This was our response to missile defense in Europe. Here is what was discussed in their press then:
        The British The Observer writes about the Iskander in the Kaliningrad region: “Militarily, this dramatically changes the balance of power in the region. Yes, and in the political it is also fraught with serious destabilization. This is nothing like the Caribbean crisis of a regional scale, and in this case Moscow is placing "nuclear missiles near the western camp, gaining strategic advantages."

    NATO is the United States and a bit of Europe: Britain-Germany-France and Norwegian girls.
    All analysts having analyzed Crimea, for example, will think that we will secretly pull up troops to the western border. What for?
    Europe hasn’t done anything to us yet. only the United States and Trump, so you can safely hide the Okhotsk coast, Kamchatka, Sakhalin and agree with the base in the DPRK.
    They recently experienced something, but we will come with our missiles.
    Our Okhotsk coast is almost deserted - highlands and taiga (read Grigory Fedoseev), and the West coast of the USA is quite densely populated

    It is not in Kaliningrad that reinforcement is necessary, but in the production of this launcher.

    It is necessary to give a state order to BAZ in order to prepare the chassis, otherwise the MZKT can stop the supply of spare parts any day, and that’s all, the cars will stand in their tracks.

    It is not a matter of how much it will fly, but what will be there.
    Wars are won not in fact - they fired and shot something, but a demonstration of opportunities.
    If from time to time along the West coast of the USA, Las Vegas, Alaska and others. if anything of ours, submarines, for example, ply, and if aviation and missiles are deployed in Kamchatka and Magadan, the United States will not be able to fully equip its "peacekeeping" forces in Poland.
    How much does Europe contribute to NATO's budget? How much is the USA?
    The concentration in the Asia-Pacific region will be such that no one but the DPRK and the United States will most likely risk using anything. Because all countries are placed on a small patch. Especially the Japanese islands with a volcanic belt.
    Pull US forces from Europe to the West Coast and into the zone of Korea, Hawaii and other islands, and these will be their FOREIGN BASES.
    Meanwhile, Svalbard, Yamal, Chukotka, Sakhalin, the Kuril Islands, Kamchatka - all these are OUR TERRITORIES. No need to negotiate with anyone

    In general, statements and protests about building up NATO’s power in the Baltic states are an old song and most likely missiles will not be needed there too.
    Must remember
    1. The Democratic Republic of Vietnam
    2. Brix partner and owner of some missiles India
    3. remember the friendly relations with Mongolia.
    And about Iskander and American missiles in Poland it sounds cynical, but no one delves into the essence of the issue in fact:

    In 1941-1942 we evacuated half the country beyond the Urals.
    Why did they build the BAM and the Trans-Siberian railway?
    Part of the regions we are evacuating to our country, if that, but Poland, the Baltic states and so on. let them agree on the evacuation to France-Germany-Scandinavia
    Let the countries of Europe think carefully whether they are ready to accept, in addition to African-Syrians and others, to evacuate Poles-Ukrainians and the Baltic states.
    It will be seen whether someone else decides on any action or not.
