Bloomberg: the creation of a NATO doubler in Europe will be beneficial only to Putin

38
The “Russian threat” was the main topic at the recent meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels, Bloomberg reported.




“After years of close observation of the threat from the Russian military on its eastern border, Europe has begun to realize the great expansionist dreams of Vladimir Putin,” the article quotes InoTV.

At the Brussels meeting, several proposals were put forward: “firstly, to restore the Atlantic command of NATO, and secondly, to create a new logistics department,” the newspaper writes, noting that “these two initiatives are very reasonable.”

However, another suggestion was made at the meeting: “to create a separate Strategic Cooperation Organization (PESCO) separate from NATO, which will include EU members”. With this idea, the agency categorically disagree. In his opinion, such a body "will either simply duplicate the command structure of the alliance, or will directly compete with it."

NATO is increasingly worried about “provocations of Russian fleet»On the so-called Faroe-Icelandic border - the area between Greenland, Iceland and Britain.

“The importance of this milestone is explained by the fact that the American courts will have to pass through it in the event of a war in Europe. Moreover, it is through this “bottleneck” that the Russian Northern Fleet will have to go through if it needs to go to the Atlantic or the Mediterranean, ”explains the author of the material.

Although a full-scale war with Russia is unlikely, “this region is vulnerable to various sabotage,” which plays a major role in the “hybrid style” of warfare by Moscow.

The new Atlantic Command will have more operational powers, as well as more independence than the existing Navy headquarters located in the UK. In addition, in his submission will constantly be their own forces.

With regard to the creation of a new headquarters for logistics, its need became apparent during the Saber Guardian summer exercise, during which soldiers and equipment had to be brought from Western to Eastern Europe. “The transfer has turned into a“ comedy of mistakes ”: bridges with restricted payload, local laws and border bureaucracy interfered with the movement of convoys,” the publication remembers.

Therefore, the first task of the new headquarters will be the creation of a “military Schengen”, which will allow troops to cross borders without any obstacles.

According to the agency, “the pragmatism of these two initiatives represents a serious contrast to the idea of ​​creating a military bureaucratic body in the EU - it’s very hard to imagine that PESCO will play any other role except to duplicate the existing NATO command system.”

If PESCO is given the green light, this initiative will only put unnecessary pressure on NATO. And you know who will like it? Vladimir Putin

    I don’t know whether Putin will like it or not, Bloomberg, of course, knows better. But it seems to me that everyone will like it if NATO cleans up with its real masters on another continent. Absolutely.
    And the EU countries with their PESCO will go there for exercises and expand democracy.

      Here not everyone will understand me, Stroporez, for example, and others, but I will vote for the GDP 100% for sure, even though I have a vow for the Russian elections - only because the Anglo-Saxons would be contorted for another 6 years, and Ukrainians whom I have ceased to endure absolutely in the last 3 years!

              As far as I understand, you want to say in your comments that everything is bad in our country ... And it’s bad, precisely because of Putin ...
              I will not advocate that everything is fine in Russia ... Not at all ... But blaming Putin alone is simply not objective ...
              Moreover, I always try to ask ONE just a question: WHAT and WHO do you offer ???
              So far, no one has answered this question for me ... I repeat: WHO do you propose as the president of all Russia so that it doesn’t "make a mistake" ??? recourse

                And our captain offers passengers to go around this iceberg ... belay

    If NATO likes to feed for nothing homeless generals and admirals, as well as their experts and advisers, then - please! Less on the "Javelins" will remain.
    This Faroe-Icelandic border is known to everyone and always who has ever seen a globe. Work on overcoming it and counteracting penetration has been and always is on both sides with the help of these ships, officers and admirals.
