Norway is concerned about Russia's "aggressive behavior"

The Norwegian authorities are concerned about the increasing incidence of "aggressive behavior" of Russia. This statement was made by the Minister of Defense of the Kingdom Frank Bakke-Jensen on Tuesday at a meeting with the head of the US military department James Mattis at the Pentagon.

Norway is concerned about Russia's "aggressive behavior"

We observe Russia's aggressive behavior near our borders and closely monitor the development of the Russian armed forces.
- Bakke-Jensen said.

He noted that the Norwegian military is particularly concerned about the exercises conducted by the Russian side in close proximity to the territory of Norway.

During the exercises, in a relatively short time Russia moved a significant number of troops to the north of the country. Russian missile systems were also redeployed to the Norwegian border. This causes us concern
- added the head of the Norwegian Defense Ministry, quoted by the publication of VG.

Mattis, in turn, called on the head of the Norwegian Defense Ministry to "increase defense spending" of the country and thanked the kingdom for its "commitment to international security."

    cases of "aggressive behavior" of Russia
    So Norway from last year has already very much taken care of this.
    This is our concern.
    Behave decently and there will be nothing to fear.

      Well, what else can the Norwegian Minister of Defense say at a meeting with the US Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon, and most importantly WHY?
      Mattis, in turn, urged the head of the Norwegian defense department to "increase defense spending" of the country

      I think the Norwegians are perfect for a demonstration of modern Russian weapons. They are still afraid, why not justify their hopes?

      In 2002, exercises took place on their and Polish territory, "Strong Resolve", practiced "defense against Russia." More than 40 thousand people participated ...
      True, at that time Russia did not consider NATO a likely adversary, it was completely immersed in its own problems with terrorism ... But this was not a special obstacle for NATO.

      They began to “confront Russian aggression” long before even its minimal manifestation.

    The photo shows harsh callorite Vikings in a modern harness. Don’t be afraid of Norway, you don’t have anything that you don’t have (except for migrant Arabs), so sit quietly and your socialism will continue.

      In the photo are ordinary fat people who have no idea how to run 200 meters and so as not to get a heart attack or fall from a loss of strength. When you look at such warriors, and let them beat a squirrel in the eye from 1 km away, but live on the battlefield for a short time with such an excess of weight.

        Well-fed does not mean weak. While the fat dries, the thin dies. Well and so on. I have a friend who is fond of running, with a height of 170 with something weight per hundred! smile

      Yes, all three Norwegians sleep in camouflage so as not to miss the official’s visit from the mother country.

    paraphrasing Vorobyaninov’s words: “note-your treasures! yours!” you can say this: “note-this is all on your territory! on your own!”

    Judging by the chevron, they are skiers, probably uncomfortable for them in the forests devoid of snow --- here even "Swedish walking" will not help to escape from the wrath of Russian missiles.

    In general, in order to remove this concern, you just need to comb and increase our alcohol tourism reserves in Karelia and the Murmansk region. 5-day tours to the forest, with a bathhouse and vodka. This is what interests most simple Finns and Norgs.
    Well, using them for easy recruitment will also not hurt.

    Russia treacherously pushed its borders to the borders of NATO. Especially in Eastern Europe

    Norway is concerned about the aggressiveness of Russia ... But what about Norway ... Iceland and Malta are also unusually worried. It is time for them to dig refuge, to stock up on food. By the way, the Russian herring has already oppressed the Norwegian several times ... Biting, cursing, promised to make all Norwegians gay ... Probably, the Norwegian embassy will present a note. And he’ll send someone ...

    As we are concerned about the aggressive behavior of the West, which unleashed World War II, was Hitler's godfather, unleashed organized more than a hundred aggressions and interventions in sovereign countries, organized coups d'etat, brought NATO closer to Russia's borders, etc. etc., just no words ...

    If Norway remained a neutral country, it would not have to worry at all, because there are no reasons for the conflict between Russia and Norway. But since Norway is in NATO, a threat to Murmansk, Arkhangelsk and the entire Northern Fleet comes from its territory. Therefore, if there is a conflict with NATO, the whole of Northern Norway will be occupied, it's like giving a drink ... Norway! Take an example from the Finns and you will be calm.
