The Pentagon is concerned about the deployment of OTRK Iskander in the Kaliningrad Region

52
The US Department of Defense commented on the deployment of Iskander tactical missile systems in the Kaliningrad region. Pentagon spokesperson John Michael said that Russia "has taken a destabilizing step." According to Mr. Michael, the deployment of Iskander OTRK in the Kaliningrad region contributes to the escalation of tensions between Russia and the countries of the Baltic region, as well as between Russia on the one hand and NATO on the other.


Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry noted that the deployment of Iskander in the westernmost region of the Russian Federation was ready to go because of the continued advance of NATO military infrastructure to the Russian borders and because of the creation of an American missile defense system in Eastern Europe, which seeks to destroy the balance of forces.

The Pentagon is concerned about the deployment of OTRK Iskander in the Kaliningrad Region


At the beginning of the week, announcements were made from Vilnius that Russia "deployed Iskander OTRK near Kaliningrad on an ongoing basis." Lithuanian authorities have announced that NATO “should not leave it unattended”.

Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite:
Russian missile systems at our borders threaten not only our country, but the whole of Europe.


Meanwhile, in the course of a sociological survey conducted in Lithuania, 52% of respondents expressed the need to establish relations with Russia. 26% stated that this is not necessary.

          It is necessary in response to demand from the Pentagon monetary compensation for the forced and more than once announced placement of OTRK Iskander. smile

              Let the missile defense system be removed

              what does the missile defense have to do with it? - this is just an element of bargaining
              1 launchers with 2 missiles with cluster warheads = minus 2 battalions
              and in the 12 Control Brigade - 24 missiles in a salvo + 12 TZM (24 missiles) = total 48
              that’s the danger

                I do not quite understand you. But I think that GDP would not have escalated the situation with the deployment of the PTRC if the United States hadn’t installed a missile defense system in Europe. He perfectly explained that Tomahawks with poison charges could be placed in a container (PU), which is a direct threat to Russia. Well, he answered. hi

                  all our 12 Armies and 2 corps are systematically re-equipped with PTRK Iskander (!)

                    Good nonsense to do. Who is the supreme in Russia, and who gives such orders? Without deploying an OTRK in Kaliningrad, you can roll up everything you need with the X-55 (101). So this is a demonstration of the answer to missile defense. This was already discussed at VO, when the deployment of Iskanders during exercises was specially rolled out for satellite imagery. By the way, why then did the Iskanders return to the mainland after them - it was a couple of years ago - watch events badly ?!

            Forget that everyone from school knows geography and take the atlas.
            We also discover incomprehensions: we see Russia, the Baltic States - America (neither northern nor southern) is generally not visible in this hemisphere request

              Where are the American flags, this devil is there. The rest are servants in these countries. Politicians are all involved in corruption, they easily keep them on a leash and in manual mode. They don’t ask their people, a handful of criminals, they keep their people for the hostages for politicians, for the American invaders. America doesn’t do anything with their own hands, they do everything with the wrong hands. What Russia has to do is aim at those places where striped flags are developing. NATO does not wake and missiles do not wake there.

    The deployment of Iskander tactical systems in the Kaliningrad Region does not violate any bilateral agreements between the United States and Russia. This was in an interview with TASS, said the representative of the US Department of Defense Johnny Michael.

    Yes, for a long time it was necessary to do this (deploy the Iskanders) in the Kaliningrad region and preferably with the second stage (if there are any!), So that in Portugal the Rota base would be covered.

    You will agree on this with Raul, otherwise even Lourdos is in doubt. If Cuba agrees to the modernization of Lourdos, and there is already outdated equipment, then the Iskander will be worse

      The problem is rather that US troops are immediately exposed to the halo of peacekeepers, even when the peaceful cities of Yugoslavia are bombed, and the deployment of any non-NATO troops already leads to aggression against neighbors in advance, even when the deployment takes place on its territory.

    The press service of any structure, whether it is the Ministry of Defense or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (whatever the data of the ministry is called) exists to express "concern" about and without reason. And often, these concerns run counter to the opinions of the ministers of these structures themselves.
    Pay attention to every "sneeze" of press services - do not respect yourself.
    At the same time, the leadership of the United States Department of Defense is well aware that this step is real and permissible in the system of balances, which has always been, is and will be in relations between Russia and the USA (NATO)

    In fact, the screech will begin when we will be armed with complexes on a wheelbase with ICBM RUBEZH (Vanguard). And judging by the fact that there is an Internet about this ICBM, it doesn’t matter whether the adversary has missile defense at all. Even if sclerosis doesn’t fail me, I could be mistaken, but one of the NATO generals, when asked about our ICBM Rubezh, replied that when it appears, the entire missile defense system can be dumped in a landfill.

    When NATO moved to the Russian border, they were not worried. They composed a fairy tale for themselves that Russia would attack them, and under this pretext they put pressure on us. As soon as Russia deployed its complexes, immediately the tantrum began. They themselves have gotten a problem, let them live with it. So for Russia, the guarantee is awakening that tame dogs will not attack Russia. So it makes it easier to live, and they will be less likely to clobber at our border. Let them sit and be silent, these petty fascists.

    It would be necessary to place the Iskander division in Khmeimim and Tartus. Suddenly, the Davidov descendants were mistaken with the aim, Iskander of the wrongdoers promptly reset. You look, and it will cool off at these ardor to bomb-shell Syrian territory.
