Germany sent new armored personnel carriers to Lithuania


Combat vehicles are part of the 292 Battalion from Donaueschingen in Baden-Wortemberg. This is not about reinforcement: according to the plan of regular rotation, he must change the servicemen from Saxon Marienberg at the NATO base.

In total, 150 vehicles and 60 containers were sent to Lithuania
- stated battalion commander Wolf Rüdiger Otto.

The total number of NATO battalions in Lithuania, commanded by Germany, is 1200 people. In addition to the soldiers of the Bundeswehr, it includes soldiers from France, the Benelux countries, Norway and Croatia. In total, four NATO battalions are in rotation in the Baltic countries and Poland.

    I don’t understand ... why aren’t we blocking the gas for the Lithuanians and Germans? One or two winters will sit on coal and firewood, you see the agility and the fighting fuse will decrease.

      Yes, because they still will not freeze! This will create a precedent for the purchase of gas in the United States. And we ourselves will remain without profit.

        Come on! belay Here, after all, how the suit will fall. Won in the United States themselves are buying gas in Russia. Then the Poles with the near-Poles also threatened to leave without profit ... Strange. stop And you, by chance, are not a shareholder of Gazprom, what kind of profit are you looking for?

        By liquefied gas? Do not tell me ... the same Germans know how to count money worse than mattresses. And the fact that squabbling with the Russian Federation is more at a loss than for good, in Germany only a complete stupid person does not understand. (We do not touch Merkel, she is from Mars). Therefore, the Germans need mattress gas just like I fly into space.
        Wherein..
        The Financial Times in the front page writes that Britain will receive liquefied natural gas from a Russian company that the United States has imposed sanctions on.

        The problem is that one of the pipelines in the North Sea is closed, and there is an acute shortage of gas on the British market.

        The first Yamal LNG tanker, loaded in the presence of President Putin last week, is heading for the British port of Isle of Greine in Kent.

        The question is, why don’t they buy mattresses from their vassals? They’re right there ... and they wanted to spit on the shavers for sanctions ...

            Refugees are one thing, and your pocket is another.
            At the same time, sanctions are no longer supported with such zeal. And recently, they have begun to rest in general.
            Although the Germans are lying under the mattresses, even a girl with low social responsibility can kick out if she is used without holidays and weekends for a long time.

                Yes, that's all. But if war is war. While they lay the pipe, they will die out. Moreover, now, during the fighting, when the entire BV is practically at war, this is not possible at all. Norwegian gas is not enough. And the United States, yes, they will supply, but Europe in this case will not be competitive, and this will inflict a serious blow on its industry.

        In the industrial sector, I confess I did not look at how things were in Germany.

    Again, the German "cross" walks around Europe and focuses on our borders. Symbolically. Probably, if Russia needs to defend itself, the ending for the German "cross" will be historically logical.

    It is interesting how the news of the entry of the battalion under the command of Germany into the territory of Lithuania was received by the leadership of the Republic of Ingushetia / USSR, for example, in 1876, 1919 or 1983. I think there would be at least a reaction from the foreign affairs agencies.
    Today, and in principle, a self-respecting state, be it large or small; strong or weak, always consistently defends their interests. He puts exciting issues on the agenda of all negotiations, regardless of the desire of a partner or looking back at someone. And this is normal!
    It is not normal that the leadership of the Russian Federation in 2018 and earlier has never brought the expansion of NATO to the East into the subjects of negotiations with the EU or the USA. There was not a single round of official negotiations on this topic! And this issue has never been officially put on the agenda of foreign policy negotiations.
    There were statements by Lavrov on this subject at a briefing. And that’s all!
    This is only discussed in our media.
    Does it not seem strange to you that Russia does not defend national interests at its borders.
    I’ll tell you frankly, if something worried the United States or Germany, then this issue or topic would be introduced by these countries, and not only these;), constantly in the subject of any interstate negotiations!
    Recall the themes of freedom of speech and similar topics that interested countries introduced into the topic of negotiations with the USSR on a regular basis. Very consistent and persistent, the system’s work in action is worthy of respect.
    And let's look at our foreign policy agenda, the topic of NATO enlargement and the presence of its military personnel and equipment - and on an ongoing basis, not only exercises, in general, are perceived by our leadership as a matter of negotiation! It’s at least not smart, it’s so much to say the least. And it does not show the extreme sequence of our foreign policy vector — our leadership gives a clear signal that everything will expand normally. We already see the military contingent of NATO countries in Ukraine.
    My question is what happens to our management?
    Whose interests does it protect?
    And what does all this mean?
    In general, all this is not very funny - try to mirror the situation - the presence of the military contingent of the Warsaw Pact in Mexico, and throughout Latin America.

    I still don’t believe ... I think the General Staff do not believe. 1200 people? 14 armored personnel carriers? What concentration is it on the border? To invade Russia, you need a lot of troops, and even more rear troops ... And all this must be concentrated in shock fists near our borders by the day of the attack ... And guess who will follow this all? And who has the best intelligence, and the best hackers, and satellites scouts? And who will deliver a limited, maybe not very, nuclear strike on the enemy’s cluster?
    And, if we subtract doctors, logisticians, chaplains, cooks, clerks and psychologists from .... out of a thousand two hundred, then the bayonets active there will generally remain funny.
    In short, you shouldn’t get angry with pro-balts. There is no one to defend them with.
    The best defense of the pro-balts is the Russians living there. Only because of them there will be no carpet bombing. But only spot stripping. And the addresses of all fascists with sympathizers are recorded. And they know this, and therefore whine from horror at the mere thought of Russia.

      Still, the Germans remember the lessons. The Ganomags are moving to Lithuania, and the Tigers are afraid. Sorry - of course Boxers and Leopards, although the essence of the matter does not change wink And they fulfill the NATO treaty and do not rock the boat.

        If these tricks had the power and the ability to attack with impunity, then they would have attacked without hesitation.
        They whine, squeal and sprinkle poisonous, furious saliva in impotent rage.
        And they beat so where they can, for example in sports.
        Our problem is that we are kind, gullible and quick-witted ... and we need to squeeze the enemies to the end, as it does not sound cruel. They will all the same sooner or later again be crap.

          and the enemies must be squeezed to the end

          This is an axiom of military science and I agree with it. Otherwise, there will be 404, which they did not squeeze after the Patriotic War. My uncle took Vienna and Budapest, a T-34 driver, and after that he fell into the hands of a Bandera, and spent six months in hospitals. It's good that I stayed alive.
          The Generation of Winners did not compromise; now they have learned to wag their tail. The world has changed for the worse. That's just the war, I definitely do not want, but because there people are much cleaner.

    The Germans in the Baltic states are a balm for the souls of revenge-seeking forces in Germany, which are gradually gaining strength and we will soon feel this.
