Special Forces Formation Suppressed In Latvia

58
The head of the Latvian police, Intc Küzis, in an interview with the LETA news agency, announced a reform in the law enforcement structures of the Baltic republic. According to Mr. Küzis, 2018 will be set up to prevent riots in 4. Each of them will be located in one or another region of Latvia.


Special Forces Formation Suppressed In Latvia


At the moment, there is one such unit in the Latvian police. This is a special-purpose battalion that was involved in suppressing speeches and protests against government policies at the start of 2009. Official Riga considered that a single battalion of police special forces was no longer enough to ensure security inside the country.

The new special forces are spetsnaz companies that will be subordinate to the Riga State Police Department.

Int Kuzys noted that in the second half of this year, the formation of special forces will be completed.

Recently, the topic of a high percentage of the Russian population, who “can play a role in the event of a possible Russian aggression,” has been actively discussed in Latvia. At the same time, the term “Russian aggression” itself does not descend from the lips of Latvian politicians who are trying to find “enemies of Latvia” already within Latvia itself. The recent speeches of the Russian-speaking population of Latvia against the policy of closing down minority schools have become another reason for the authorities of Latvia to solve the problem with repressive methods.

      They don’t need to serve in the army, they have already been occupied by NATO, but why in the occupied territory they have their own army, only the police

          There wasn’t enough imagination to think of something ... Before the war, the Latvian army had buttonholes, and in the current one they decided to “rip off” the shoulder straps from the Wehrmacht ..... And units are formed to act against the Russian-speaking population .... Aborigines are already all over Europe fled ....

        For some reason, the presence of tanks, artillery and MLRS at the explosives at the EBN did not bother anyone. As well as purchases by "Vovans" of armored vehicles - before their renaming in the WG.
        By the way, if you are not in the know, RPOs have long been used in the UK when storming buildings with militants - since the days when the WG was an explosive.

At the Freedom Monument in the center of Riga, the lady holds three stars on her arms outstretched, and so, like a bike, it was such that these were three regions - Latgale, Zemgale and Courland. In Soviet Latvia, the republic was immediately divided into districts, there were no regions.

    A decrease in the transit of Russian goods through Latvia is directly correlated with an increase in the number of internal enemies.
    When our cargo flow through Latvia reaches zero, the entire population, including local Latvian, will be declared enemies of the state.

    Strange news ... Well, riots happen in all countries
    From the USA to the Russian Federation. Latvia is no exception. Maybe the local riot police can’t cope.
    Latvard for example. An example is from the USA, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, etc.
    One of the differences between the National Guard and the internal troops, which it replaced, is the possibility of attracting the National Guard to stop unauthorized mass events, even if they do not develop into riots. The law on internal troops (article 18) was a direct ban on using formations and military units of a special purpose and special motorized formations and military units to suppress unauthorized gatherings, rallies, demonstrations, marches and pickets of a non-violent nature. For the National Guard there is no such ban.

    shoot without warning for example.

    Once the protests were: a quote from Wiki "The riots in Riga - the unrest in Riga on January 13, 2009 in connection with the economic crisis that swept the country. The date of these events coincided with the start of the so-called barricade revolution in 1991, as well as the date of the shooting of the demonstration with which the revolution of 1905 began in Latvia.

    The source of unrest was an anti-government demonstration held on Dome Square, whose participants chanted “Atlaist Saeimu” (“Dissolve the Seimas”), “Down with the Seimas”. This demonstration was organized by trade unions and the opposition. Their demand was the dissolution of parliament [1].

    About 10-20 thousand people gathered at the rally. In the evening, a peaceful rally grew into riots. Having approached the Latvian Sejm building, the protesters began throwing eggs, tomatoes, empty bottles and stones on the building, which the protesters took out of the pavement with their hands. There was a scuffle with the Alpha special forces guarding the Seimas, which used tear gas, batons and rubber bullets. Protesters tried to occupy the building, but were driven away by the police. The protesters ousted from the parliament building began to smash cars on Smilshu street; shops, cafes and the Parex Bank building were also affected. However, the Ministry of Finance building and the State Treasury building located on the same street were the most affected. A stone was also thrown into the window of the second floor of the Letoniki building (a branch of the National Library dedicated to the history of Latvia). Police detained about 137 rioters suspected of robbing shops and tipping over police cars [2].

    These riots have become one of the largest in the recent history of Riga.

    On February 20, the Godmanis government was dissolved, and Godmanis resigned as head of government [3 "
    This is the official version, in fact, the provocateurs worked - while they shouted and threw stones at the windows of the diet, the police themselves were ready to join the protesters. And then someone threw a stone at the police and began to smash the shops - the police used special equipment. Now in case of riots in the police there is little hope, they themselves are the first to protest.

    Apparently, our local imbeciles cannot think of anything else so that the people would be pleased and not go out at all, but judging by the statement, this cute face will not expect us anything good again in the near future. Here at the top they only talk about the Russian threat and think about how to lick the ass pi_ndo_sam. You see, Russia stands at the borders !!!
