Britain will send four fighters to Romania to patrol the airspace over the Black Sea. As British Secretary of Defense Gavin Williamson explained, this is necessary to contain "the growing self-confidence of Russia."


Britain will send fighters to Romania because of "self-confident" Russia


In the face of the increasingly self-confident Russia, the United Kingdom will significantly expand its commitments to Europe, and today I can confirm further support measures that demonstrate that we are at the forefront of European security.
- the site of the government quotes him.

In addition, London will create a special unit for rapid response in the Western Balkans. According to Williamson, who recently took office, Britain "has noticeably strengthened its role in ensuring European security."

As noted, despite the fact that in March 2019, the UK leaves the European Union, the country intends to continue to play a “key” role in the European security system.

Earlier, Romanian President Klaus Johannis said that the alliance does not pose a threat to Russia.

    Reading such statements, sometimes it’s really a pity those countries that make them — earlier, from the “Soviet threat” hundreds of military aircraft were raised in defense of the sky, now only four FOUR aircraft can be sent to some micro-state! !! Although, perhaps, due to the small territory of Romania, more aircraft will not fit there? ?? Or their romals quickly replaced by something? ?? wassat

      Just the British decided to serve their planes at someone else's expense ... Romanians will not pull more than four planes!
      Evil Russia is an excuse, as always!

          You're lying, British dog! This is not Russia "self-confident", and you dogs are insolent. You think we don’t understand that you tighten the ring. We say good, leave me alone - otherwise we will punish you. Moreover, now it’s not 45 years old, the English Channel does not need to be crossed, it’s easier to fly through the air - where you need to and what you need to fly. Not much will seem ...

      Well, you immediately plus all the NATO litaki and it will be normal

      15 NATO countries are armed with about 890 fighters of the 4th generation of early modifications

      well, plus or minus. They can drink blood. This is the United States litaki not counted. We must also see what Japan is doing with its Air Force. What buys. This is in addition to Nata and mattresses

      in general, we have enough for the eyes. And these 4 cars are like that. Warming up. Who knows how many of them will be at our borders by the year 20. According to NE, they are establishing infrastructure here. First, a few tanks and BMPs will arrive - it will be necessary - they will add. Infrastructure is getting ready. Logistics will tighten

      Yes, even the Finns with the Swedes. Who knows what will be there in total.

    But is Romania also afraid that hordes of Russian tanks will capture it? Or is it waiting for the landing of hundreds of Russian ships? I’m even afraid to imagine what the British are counting on, sending as many 4 fighters as possible. As a patrol, these are very convenient targets for the C-400 located in the Crimea.

    So sir! Fighters fly in pairs .. That is, we have one pair in the air, one on the ground .... Question: how long will they develop their resources with continuous patrolling? Well, of course, I turned it down - they will rise to intercept and escort aircraft approaching their borders.

    Great Britain will send four fighter jets to Romania to patrol airspace over the Black Sea because of “self-confident” Russia

    Just please do not squeak about the "aggressiveness of Russia" when you see Russian bombers near the British Isles. yes
    There is an adequate answer to everything, including attempts to somehow oppose Russia to itself. yes angry

    Let's stop being "couch politicians." It’s not really funny. The presence of the West is increasingly growing in the Balkans. And we giggle. All that we can hope for is some kind of “adequate response” as one wrote in the form of our bombers near the borders of Britain. We are losing our presence in the Balkans. And it was not necessary to laugh at the Bulgarians, but to repair their planes, yes, maybe a little cheaper ... but you never know how to throw money away. We laugh, and they will buy from others, or maybe they won’t buy at all, and another four will appear, but already in Bulgaria. Who is better then? Look around, Russia has many allies? Yes, thank you and I must say that the site has Jews and Bulgarians with their own position. So use, communicate, and do not pour mud. They will leave and we will remain, each other, to praise how wonderful we are. God forbid we get to the point, we will find ourselves face to face with Jews and Bulgarians, ordinary people, not corrupt politicians, but those who are talking to us here. So far despite the prevailing scraped in their direction. Who doesn’t have peace from the actions of Bulgarian politicians in two wars? Stop, gone. We now, in the present, spoil our very relations.

      I plusanul, but because of communication on the VO relations between our countries do not improve, that's for sure. It’s not up to me and not on you that they are being zombified against us .. They themselves must think with their heads who they choose to be “leaders” because of which other people's planes will patrol their skies. It's my personal opinion... hi hi hi

    Laughter, laughter, and grain by grain - by grain and by the barn cart! Either an Amerzotka will throw a company into the pro-Baltic, then it will drag tanks into Poland, so So it’s not worth joking ... It’s necessary to answer - not in words!
