Serbian and American paratroopers will soon hold a joint exercise, reports TASS the message of the commander of the USAF in Europe and Africa, General Tod Walters. He also heads the NATO Air Force Joint Command, whose headquarters is located at the Ramstein base in Germany.


General Todd Walters

According to the general, in the upcoming maneuvers will be involved "about 100 US troops, representing the ground forces and the Air Force."

The exercise will be held at the invitation of the Serbian government. During the training sessions, “from two C-130J military transport aircraft, Serbian and US military personnel will carry out a joint landing operation,” said Walters. At the same time, he did not name the exact date of the maneuvers.

The general described the upcoming training as an event aimed at "building trust and working relationships that last a lifetime."

And they (maneuvers) will certainly expand the technical expertise of the Serbs,
added on.

Walters also stated that tensions remain in the Balkans, which is one of the challenges for NATO and the United States.

However, we have the right team concentration. We have the right resources. We have the right dialogue, and time will tell how events will unfold,
concluded the general.

      The people definitely didn’t forget, but politicians are ready for anything, if only they would give money ... Serbian politicians they are, with reduced social responsibility ...

        And politicians will disregard themselves - they will say something like "Serbia wants to comprehensively study the experience of different countries in order to more effectively counter threats."

            In Serbia, those in power are those * simple * Serbs who have chosen. There, crying on the topic * bros * only when begging for some buns. Just like gypsies and beggars near the market.

                Work more and more actively with the common population.
                Do not buy bribes, which are still resold.
                And to open centers of Russian culture, invite more students to our universities, create pro-Russian foundations, conduct festivals ...
                In general, ordinary people fall in love with Russia.
                And you’re used to it: “Like a war, we’re running to my little brothers, like the world is the West, we love you.”

          Neither the mind nor the pride of politicians. the Americans will quietly check the state of the gdp, take the coordinates of the ends and fly around the territory at low altitude - they always do that. Well, even parachutists will please

                Hi! hi I generally noticed that many politicians only in the words of the patriots of their country. In fact, they spit on the country and the people - they are busy banal stuffing their pockets.

      That's for sure. Today the military exercises in Serbia - "Slavic Brotherhood", Russia, Belarus, Serbia (November 2 - 9) have ended. The footcloths had not time to dry yet, and they were already hobbling with the Americans. Over the past 5 years, Serbs participated in NATO military exercises - 44 times, and with Russia - 6 times. Most of the population of Serbia for friendship with Russia, that's the politicians and twirl backwards - back and forth.

    Yes, business, here the Serbs are friends with NATO.
    And on the other hand, we ourselves are to blame, we wanted freebies, the Volga for a voucher, we were led for the Western Values, and now we disentangle.
    In the 20s and 30s of the last century, the RSFSR and the USSR also had no friends, they won nothing and won the war and bailed the country, we still chew.

      Plus, dear comrade! So far, this is the most sensible comment of all submitted. The overwhelming majority for some reason forgot how the Yeltsin gang threw all the Russian allies who stupidly fell under the ice rink of the USA and Europe and were forced to independently, who surrendered their sovereignty voluntarily, and who, through bombing, somehow integrated into the new world order. Now, when Russia squared its shoulders a little, everyone was surprised to find that 25 years after the collapse of the USSR were not in vain, and moreover, they crawled out to our side. Mattresses brought to power figures that are absolutely controlled by them, who simply do not hear the people and fulfill the task assigned to them. Yes, now Russia needs to very seriously “dig in” on external fronts in order to regain some of the former allies at least in a neutral status. To give them a different “status”, we will either need to convincingly gouge the “hegemon” in battles at external borders such as Syria and Urkaina, or put him in a kneeling pose on its territory. In any case, without regaining the image of a world power capable of standing up for those “whom it has tamed”, we will not be able to return to the zone of our influence those whom we lost thanks to Gorbachev and Yeltsin.

        Is it possible to call them “neutral, allies?” They’ll always have the motive “Did I give ...”
        And so write it right. "+" To you

    For me, they are trying to lure Serbs into NATO, they won’t drive threats and fables about evil Russians! Now the Americans will appreciate the level of the Serbian unit and I can guarantee that they will allocate money for the training of Serbian airborne officers in the United States. They may send a couple of landing platforms for cargo and the old S-130 Hercules.

    Do not trust the Serbs. In your opinion should they follow in the footsteps of Russia? Then they are waiting for sanctions, but they do not have energy, so that somehow it is afloat, in addition, surrounded by ill-wishers. What should they do? We need to move this, if only for Serbian youth to choose the right path, we need to annually carry out sports, music, etc. Pan Slavic events. And it is better of course to invest in the Serbian economy.

    Just yesterday, someone here wrote a comment on the topic "Serbia began the modernization of the MiG-29 transferred by Russia" something like: "Fly, BROTHERS!" I am sure that we do not have “RELATIVES” outside the borders of Russia. All these "brothers", "bros", "we are Slavs" ... until the moment when someone pays them more.

    From this we must draw conclusions, and not divide the Serbian people into an "elite" and everyone else who loves Russia. Do they love her with garlic or with tomatoes? We drove the Balkans, as well as much more (however, not the first time). And this should be taken for granted, not scuffle, not boast of your friends - the army and navy, but work quietly, step by step, winning back what you lost by stupidity, because of betrayal, or for some other reason. Then the proximity of two peoples, Russian and Serbian, will work.

      Shaw, then I do not remember the case when one or another "brother" came to the aid of a big Slavic brother who was in trouble ???
      They were saved more than once, when the Ottomans, or someone else, cut them on a large scale ... well, they were grateful, such as friendship, brothers forever !!!
      I, as it is not in a claim, for "reciprocal love", let him ... I just urge you to hold on to the true support and friend of the Russian state - the Army and Navy !!! I hope there will be no disputes over the economic power of the state.
