      Helicopters to Latvia are flown by those who claimed that they would not increase their contingent in Europe!
      There are words, here it is! They stuffed their “sperm” into Eastern Europe, and then, to all liberals, they don’t like my analogies!

        how can you believe these approvers. They promised not to expand NATO eastward. In my opinion, this is the most important Western tradition of constantly lying.

            The tank division was transferred to Poland, and Poland officially declares that this division does not exist. Now here are 76 helicopters to the Baltic states. A combat helicopter is a very scary weapon. The general attack of such an armada is guaranteed to destroy the entire borderland, albeit with losses. If air defense before this suppress tomahawks.
            Yes, it’s a real war.

                They are not stupid, but they are sure that the strikes will be delivered non-nuclear and precisely in those parts that participate in the aggression in Russia. And this will allow to organize the expenditure of means of destruction, thereby reducing the likely blow AFTER the states officially enter the game.

                  Just yesterday, Trump said that their air defense was guaranteed to be hit by 95% of the missiles. And immediately began preparations for the war.

              There is no division there, this is another Konashenkov fake. There is a tank brigade: 3100 personnel, 85 Abrams tanks. During the rotation of people, the short time was longer, it always happens - first the shift arrives, then the previous ones decrease.

    Ah, well, that's good. Here is a good cemetery for them) As Shamanov hinted yesterday, you need to quickly transfer another Iskander brigade to Kaliningrad. And it would be nice to have a Buk-M3 division to cover them. And in this vein, and answer) The Iskander brigade costs about $ 200 million. Apache Regiment - half a billion. 76 turntables of the Yankees - this is not less than a billion "greenery". The Iskander brigade easily covers both airfields and a tank division in Poland. So you can increase the race indefinitely) And then just bury Iskander rockets in stationary mines with protection like an ICBM (and this is resistance to a 2-ton air bomb), you can also strengthen the mines with an analogue of the Arena, there were already developments - t. e. total protection against ANY conventional weapon. They want a race - they will get it) devastating for themselves) For Russia - affordable, asymmetric)

    Yes, the orava is almost the same when you consider that then Germany acted as the United States and the whole of Europe worked for it both in people and in production. It turns out almost the same. But Russia is a little stronger than the USSR at that time, at least as an existing weapon. All the same, in the current situation in many respects our weapons are not inferior to NATO. It is very likely that the Americans decided to rekindle war in a European theater, to bleed our army to the maximum and only then clean up the heat with their own hands.

          Stupidity. War is not their goal, because they know very well that they will not win it. Their goal is provocation and psychological exhaustion of the enemy, inciting hysteria in the enemy, his demoralization. And it is very clearly seen that they achieve their goals every time the number of tantrums in Russia increases, when people weak in mind and spirit are demoralized. That is, they are rational within the framework of the analysis available to them ... They want a revolution here, that is, the psychological defeat of Russia in the war. By the type of 1917. When the Bolsheviks surrendered to Germany. That is, they, I repeat, are rational.
