New structure in the army of Vietnam. Against who?

43
Edition Financial Times publishes material on the creation of a new formation in the structures of the Vietnamese armed forces. The size of the formation is estimated at about 10 thousand people. The main tasks that are set by the command of these military personnel are to conduct “propaganda campaigns on the Internet.” At least that's how it is presented in the Western press.


In Vietnam itself, the appointment of a new segment of the country's armed forces is characterized as “countering false information, promises and ideas.” The name of the new Vietnamese formation is “Force-47”. Information on its creation is confirmed in the political administration of the Vietnamese People’s Army.

New structure in the army of Vietnam. Against who?


According to the Deputy Chief of the Political Directorate of the Armed Forces of Vietnam, General Nguyen Trong Ngia, the use of the Internet for disseminating information, “the ability to cause unrest and chaos,” has recently become more frequent. The General of the Armed Forces of Vietnam noted that official Hanoi was concerned about this problem, and therefore decided to create permanent formations to counter this kind of threat that Vietnam had not previously encountered.

For reference: the number of Internet users in Vietnam is officially about 60 million people. This is more than 60% of the population.

    I always admired the Vietnamese, but here, in general ... they work quickly and in a modern way.

        The main thing against whom? Given their worthless relationship with China, they began to dance more with the Americans, as it is not strange. Although, what is so strange here. The USSR has left, but a holy place does not exist.

                You can’t, you can’t brush it off. Then our diplomats would be in a hurry. Exchange of delegations, cultural exchange and quietly, slowly restore what was poached in the 90s. And now we have all the "cultural" ties are limited to their sellers in the bazaars. And that's it. For something else, I have not heard something.

            Reconcile China with Vietnam, that would be great.
            Of course I understand the loot it and in Africa loot. But I think the Vietnamese horseradish forgot Agent Agent, with which their most "peace-loving" nation watered. I think we need to work with China and Vietnam to bring them closer. Then you can smoke striped from there. (IMHO)

                      No cultural exchange outweighs their gigantic trade turnover with America and investments. Cultural and other exchanges between them are also rather big. And most importantly, in the Soviet years there was an agreement on mutual military assistance (USSR-Vietnam) and it had to be confirmed during the Vietnam-Chinese wars by the active operations of our fleet, supply and reconnaissance forces in the waters adjacent to the conflict. Moreover, the Vietnamese direction was secondary, and the main forces were brought in, but were not involved in the Chinese military districts bordering the USSR. Then the Chinese simply arranged such "Khalkhin- Goal "a peculiar and Soviet bloc withstood the blow, and the Chinese realized that it was necessary to curtail operations and not to escalate in the North, because there, a simple provocation could escalate into military clashes with strong Soviet armies. And by the way, a very important point! The Chinese invasion began in response to Moscow’s Vietnamese political offensive on the border and Cambodia issues. In the current situation, we won’t be able to provide such comprehensive support to China for the Vietnamese for a number of reasons, and although Vietnamese politicians say they are not going to military alliances against third countries but they can still be covered by an American nuclear umbrella like Yu.Korei. Not now, but if China wants to act as in the 79th or Cambodian methods, then the matter will be quickly resolved. So far, Russian ships are safely secured in Vietnam, but this fits into our friendly relations. And more is not profitable and difficult for us. Without any jokes, the Indian naval base will appear there faster than ours.

                        "Power47", just like AK47. I agree with you. a very difficult issue for us is relations between Vietnam and China. our close rapprochement with Vietnam may become a lifesaver for the Yankees in their so far hopeless dream to pit the Russian Federation and China. on the other hand, our rapprochement may turn out to be in the hands of the Chinese. it’s not exactly an hour, the Vietnamese can indeed develop their business ties with the Yankees in a field-wide military-political “wedding”. here's how to look: on the other hand, a desperate jealous of India. but we still have to get close to Vietnam, because at what political cost does China expect in return? I do not insist, these are just thoughts out loud.
