NATO will increase the British contingent in response to Russia's underwater activity

40
NATO plans to expand the command post of its naval forces in the UK in connection with "the significantly increased underwater activity of Russia in British waters," reports RT the message of the newspaper The Times.




It is about increasing the staff of the NATO Joint Command Command (MARCOM) at the Northwood military base from 300 to 400-500 people.

Russia is actively operating in the zone of our interests. Russian submarines pose a threat to the naval forces and critical elements of NATO’s infrastructure,
Alliance spokesman told the newspaper.

NATO also fears that Russian submarines might cut transatlantic communications cables.

In addition, the military is concerned about "improving the technical characteristics of Russian submarines - they have become faster and quieter than during the Cold War, so they are harder to detect," the newspaper said.

“In addition, over the past 25 years, NATO has not invested enough money in the development of anti-submarine defense. As a result, now there are much fewer submarines, frigates and aircraft that are capable of tracking submarines, ”the article says.

According to the newspaper, the final decision to increase the staff of the Joint Command of the NATO Navy in Northwood will be made no earlier than the July summit of the leaders of the Alliance countries in Brussels.

            It would be better if they didn’t say “increase by 100-200 people”, but “we demand from Britain 10-20 million dollars to increase the number of employees”. I believe that in this case the reaction of taxpayers in England would be less restrained, although they would say the same

                    Only 2 ?! Something about the General Staff is very low opinion.
                    None of the teams was able to reflect the option proposed by Zhukov’s team. Despite the subsequent organizational conclusions, in principle, protection was not created. By the way, thanks in large part to the mass posts and "commercial activities" of a number of senior officers and their subordinates.
                    Your political officer should have attended to the availability of relevant literature at your headquarters.

                        So I understand that you have a very vague idea of ​​the order of the command-staff games, although the order determining the order is not at all zero.

                        in the forty-first year - 2.

                        As far as I know, the neck was removed at the end of the zero years, before that no reliable source mentioned the year of the game. But for subsequent events (and for a tolerance of at least 2) it was possible to orientate perfectly. It is enough that in the beginning of the 41st Zhukov was behind the state.
                        The notorious game was in March-April 1938, a consultant to Count Ignatiev. Subsequent events are largely determined by organizational conclusions and their implementation. And the opposition - intentional and unintentional.

                        Professional publications in their publicly available versions have gaps in information regarding the military and state secrets. Unprofessional - fill them with vinaigrette. Enemies of the state insert the game they need.
                        We were lucky - in our time, primary school teachers were highly qualified, and easily conveyed to students "the ability to understand what was read." And we were never called "children" at school. Even in professional literature.

          No, NATO was created to confront the USSR ... and after the collapse of the alliance, it was necessary to come up with a reason for which NATO is needed in the future. And then, suddenly, terrorists all over the world appeared in countless numbers, and if earlier they were small groups of not equipped fanatics, now, for some reason, the terrorists have become remarkably trained, equipped and even managed to make an army out of them in the form of ISIS.
          Well, now, such threats as the Russian Federation, China, Korea, Iran, Ebola, constipation with diarrhea, gonorrhea and prostatitis have added to the “fight” with terror ... and NATO has committed itself to all this.
