The Latvian Defense Ministry summoned Andrei Lobov, the Russian military attache in the republic, and expressed dissatisfaction with Moscow’s plans to launch a missile launch launch over the exclusive Latvian economic zone in the Baltic Sea.


Latvian Defense Ministry was scared of training launches of Russian missiles


The defense ministry believes that such maneuvers from Russia "can be interpreted as a demonstration of power." Also, as stressed in the Latvian Ministry of Defense, such exercises can threaten the movement of ships and aircraft over the Baltic Sea. At the same time, the department noted that international treaties do not prohibit Russia from conducting such exercises in this territory, however they called Russian exercises provocative.

Restricting a certain area to at least 36 hours will not only harm economic activity, but also increase the risk of incidents. The national armed forces will monitor the progress of these exercises, and will also closely monitor the state border.
- it is spoken in the message of the Ministry of Defense of Latvia.

Meanwhile, the Civil Agency aviation Latvia (AHA), in response to a request from Russia, agreed to close the airspace of Latvia at an altitude of 18 km next week in the area provided for training launches of Russian missiles, said the director of the AHA Maris Gorodtsov. He explained that closing the airspace is a standard procedure when military experts ask for it, but so far this has not happened in Latvia, RIA reports. News

      They warned everything that was needed about the exercises, and they can keep their complaints with them anyway. Nobody cares.

            An economic zone is not a territory of a state, there is no territory that cannot be simply crossed ... sprats, sprats can not be caught there, wells are drilled and other economic activities are coordinated with whose zone it is! I’ve never heard that you can’t fly over it, for example, and even teachings cannot be carried out without demand.
            But Schaub the rockets didn’t fly over it, didn’t I understand? Where is it said, where is such an agreement or other international obligations. Those. satellites also can’t fly over the Baltic ones, or what? That is the question?
            He answered longly, well it happened!

              Well, what is incomprehensible, at an altitude of 18 km, the Latvian air fleet carries “SPRINGS” to all progressive humanity, and here As many as 36 hours!, The missiles will fly, well, what a loss!

    Have you figured out the "fumes" already? And then in London people die.

    During the military exercises at the Latvian training ground in Adazi, three American troops were injured, they were hospitalized, said a spokesman for the republic’s defense ministry, Kaspar Galkin.

    He clarified that the Americans "breathed in the fumes that arose during the exercise." After the initial inspection, one military man was detained in the hospital, the other two were released back to the base, RIA Novosti reports.

    US Army units have been in rotation in Latvia since 2014.

    On February 1, as part of the Atlantic Resolve mission, the first 25 troops of the 3rd US Army Armored Brigade arrived in Latvia.

      Latvia is supported by Britain. They probably feed her with the Novichok chemical weapon. Here they don’t understand what and write different nonsense.

    such maneuvers on the part of Russia “can be regarded as a demonstration of strength” ... called the Russian exercises defiant.
    Consider what you want, but why not show Latvia once again that its provocative policy towards Russia is already pretty tired. It is worth all the Balts to think about the future and open their mouth less in the direction of our country.

    such exercises may threaten the movement of ships and aircraft over the Baltic Sea

    ... and also frighten herring and sprats.

    Yes, this is a show of strength in a democratic way. Thank Shoigu.
    For example, I would demonstrate strength in an undisguised, cynical and most crude form. Plus, I would enter for a week or two a no-fly zone and close the territorial waters for the navigation of ships and sprats.
    For Salaspils, for Sosberi, for Nord Stream, for veterans .... but you never know why.

    Intimidate, or what? laughing
    But seriously - but they will not notice anything ... And civilian planes do not fly at such heights. And the fact that they have there "economic activity will rise for 36 hours" - so there is nothing to become there already.

    It is necessary to remind ourselves of something, otherwise they will forget in the world that such a country is on the map. Do not wake tests of Russian missiles. , they will write Russian satellites in space fly over us. I wrote it on purpose, otherwise they will forget about our companions.
