Stoltenberg: NATO has lost the skills of fighting at sea

27
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg pointed out the highest activity of Russian submarines and acknowledged that the fleet of the North Atlantic Alliance had lost the necessary fighting skills at sea, reports RIA News.




Russia has invested heavily in its fleet, especially in submarines. The activities of Russian submarines are at the highest level since the Cold War,
Stoltenberg said in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

At the same time, he noted the reduced readiness of NATO to the challenges at sea.

After the end of the Cold War, NATO reduced its capabilities at sea, especially the ability to combat submarines. We practiced less and lost skills
explained the secretary general.

He also spoke of the need to create new naval units capable of protecting the alliance’s transport routes across the Atlantic.

Earlier, NATO defense ministers agreed on a plan to adapt the command structure, which implies the creation of two commands: across the Atlantic "to protect transport routes between North America and Europe" and on logistics "to ensure the transportation of troops and equipment inside Europe."

In addition, it was decided to create a center for cyber operations and integrate national cyber capabilities in the missions and operations of the alliance while maintaining full control over them by member countries.

The Secretary General said that the adaptation of the command structure is carried out, among other things, because of the situation around Ukraine.

      There is very little information about the actions of our nuclear submarines, but I feel they are hooligan and brazen there off the coast of the USA!
      And no one in the world is afraid of the Western AUGs anymore, as before .. Russia has developed means of dealing with them and can deliver them to any country .. I think negotiations are underway in the DPRK, and maybe they have already placed them! soldier
      Contact gentlemen, it's time to drive the United States from everywhere.!

          In my opinion, all their statements are aimed only at one thing, to lull our vigilance so that we relax and, as it were, bathed in laurels of superiority over them. But in reality we still have a lot to do .. they don’t like that we breathe in the back of their head.

            What does "breathing" (!?) have to do with it, when it became uncomfortable to hooliganize at your own discretion .... the threat of grabbing a slap in the face more and more clearly faces their mental gaze.

            Mr. Stoltenberg extended the agreement for another term as NATO Secretary-General, so he is working out his bread. No threat - no work for Stolty.

              Stoltenberg is not a military man by education, but a financial economist and a market marketing salesman. His task as the NATO leader to the Pentagon at the last stage and at the re-elected stage is to promote the sale of American weapons to NATO countries, which he succeeds in his marketing post and does under various calculations of the American and pro-American military of NATO countries.
              For the last presence of Stoltnberg as Secretary General of NATO, the North Atlantic Alliance, according to plans from Washington, should really arm itself to the maximum. And NATO is indeed arming itself in its arms race against Russia
              Then Stoltentenberg will be replaced in NATO by the already really military-educated scumbags from the "war party".

    It’s time for NATO to get used to the idea that Russia is not the same as it was in the 90s. Now it can “roll over” cabbage soup, both on land, in the air and at sea angry

      It is precisely because they can get slammed along the cabbage soup and will not calm down. After the collapse of the USSR, they hurried to order a memorial service in Russia.

        hi
        No, they won’t calm down. The main sponsor of the alliance weekly throws up new troubles. Just yesterday, the United States for NATO voiced the “problem” in the Baltic states with a summary - “Kaliningrad must be destroyed.” No more and no less.

          Captain of the U.S. Navy --- of course, a strategist! True, the sofa, for the wishful thinking is possible ...
          The problem of the Baltic states is not a possible Russian occupation, but the economic death of these under-states, which we can arrange for them in two ways ...
          They will be able to capture us only if the operation to link KOR with BelVO fails ... Without a corridor, we’ll have enough for a month, no more. And then, if they do not lean "from all sides and in droves."
          As for the Atlantic, the captain is truly sad:
          "NATO needs to ensure unhindered access to large Polish ports. ... And here they will face a problem"
          Therefore, the Yankees will most likely have to land the expeditionary forces “in Normandy,” because the ports of Poland and the Federal Republic of Germany are in the sight of our Two-horned and DA with the CRBD on board.
          Again, damn it, sadness ...

    Again, the Allies will beg for money. And what they can’t track, it was the same before. If the boat at the exit to the sea did not have time to detect, then everything. And in general, there are a lot of show-offs, with very modest results.

      Absolutely agree yes Everyone knows perfectly well that Russia is not going to attack anyone, and that’s nonsense for the sake of babos. People are maintaining it, therefore Russophobia is growing, and under the "demands" of the people expressed by manual media it’s easy to cut money for interested corporations from the same people laughing Classic grandma bully

        Hi, hi
        And if you don’t grind, but have to state a fact?
        Quote: nikolaev
        NATO has lost naval skills
        He said this regarding anti-submarine operations. And they are very "uncomfortable": long in time, with the involvement of great forces, while heterogeneous. This entails a tremendous expenditure of material resources and resources.
        Remember the Atrin operation, when our Pikes went to the Atlantic ... Then the Amy burned an annual supply of aviation gasoline and drove dozens of ships across the Atlantic for almost a month, including the 2 aircraft carrier. And all with zero effect!
        Therefore, the Yankees prefer to "train" on simulators without going to sea. And on the shore you can only learn to sniff at the buttons ... So they lost the skills of a real maritime service.
        Yes, their AMG regularly go to the BS, but this is significantly different from the search for anti-submarine actions. They even wrote off their S-3 PLO aircraft to the Vikings ... I’m afraid they will have to look for a replacement, otherwise they will not be able to create any mobile PLO region without it.
        There is hope for boats. But there are problems: the Russians have become quiet, and their acoustics are becoming digital ... besides, all sorts of AOKS like Tukan have appeared ... Inadvertently, they can also hurt you on occasion!
        So sadness ... however.

    the Alliance fleet has lost the necessary fighting skills at sea
    Did you lose your scent by being proud that everyone was “defeated”? You not only lost your skills, but also missed the fact that the Russian nuclear submarines have become more advanced and quieter. Do not try to show us your strength, it is better to swim quietly in the place allotted to you and do not try to become a hegemon here too.

    Stoltenberg ...NATO has lost fighting skills at sea.

    Is it worse than in Sweden ?! There, on their shores, they searched for a Russian boat for 1,5 years, but did not find it. I suggest our creators of p / boats, the next series after the "Piranha" and "Status", called - "Gopher". belay
