Berlin: Because of the threat from Russia, we will three times increase our contingent on NATO exercises

24
The command of the German armed forces announces that it intends to send about 12 thousands of German soldiers to the next NATO exercises. When this is openly stated that the purpose of these exercises is to "contain Russia".


The Journal Focus It is said that in 2018, the German contingent on several exercises of the North Atlantic military bloc will be three times more than last year in terms of numbers. At the same time, Berlin actually allocates almost 100 million euros for its participation in military maneuvers near the Russian borders.

We are talking about such military exercises as Saber Strike, Flaming Thunder and Iron Wolf.

Berlin: Because of the threat from Russia, we will three times increase our contingent on NATO exercises


The Focus stated that the increase in the military contingent of the Bundeswehr as part of the combined NATO formations German authorities are in connection with the "ongoing aggressive policy of Moscow." It was also added that "the Baltic countries and Poland feel threatened by Russia in connection with the actions of Moscow in the Crimea."

Strange ... And why, in this case, even long before the Crimean events, NATO came close to the Russian borders and did not refuse to conduct exercises on land, water and in the air with the involvement of various military contingents?

Recall that earlier the Polish general Waldemar Skzhypchak in an interview with local media said that NATO had an offensive military strategy.

    It’s completely useless to prove something, to call for peaceful cooperation. It may not be useful to fight directly, but the West is able to create tension. Moreover, along the entire perimeter of the borders of Russia, only from the Arctic they can’t, except for the SSBN. That’s Afghanistan seriously ISIS and the coalition “fighting” him! Gunpowder must be kept dry, and it’s time to burn the wicks!

    Has the State Department again whispered the “right” words? It is simply amazing how the Germans are twisted their hands, dragging them to Russia.

    Will they go to the exercises with weapons and ammunition? And then they have sticks from mops instead of machine guns, or there are not enough cartridges! They don’t have enough intelligence, how much was raked from us, but still, not enough! We will have to rename Berlin next time and introduce the Russian language into training.

    “Containment of Russia”
    Oh, these Germans. Not even 73 years have passed, but they are for the old. The truth today is "restrained" by American instruction. Maybe the "moderators" should remember their story? Or do you want revenge that they can’t sleep?

    The answer on the surface is that they knew in advance that "Russia will operate in the Crimea." Like one Dutch minister.

    I once wrote that If Che, then their equipment will melt in the parks, and the soldiers will run out of the barracks to the maximum and evaporate. There will be no other war.

    The Germans are not alone in participating in NATO exercises, whether you like it or not, the number of mongrels is growing in number, as is the number of exercises on our borders. After the alliance announced that they would deploy troops in the Baltic, it was necessary to declare that as soon as the first NATO soldier appeared in 100 km from St. Petersburg, he would be destroyed, and any German soldier on the Russian border would be destroyed by any means possible. I don’t think that after that there would be countries that agreed to war with us singly or together with the offended. Well, the Germans even more so.

      “Nord Stream 2 runs along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The length of the pipeline leading to Germany should be more than 1,2 thousand km, the total capacity is 55 billion m3 annually. The total project cost is 9,5 billion euros. Half the cost five European companies - Shell, OMV, Engie, Uniper and Wintershall - will finance it. The construction will allow Russia to supply gas to the EU, bypassing the territory of Poland and Ukraine. "

    It seems that they are asking for updating the monuments. Instead of the T-34, put the T-90 ...
