So what if they themselves allowed? Latvia will complain about missile launches in the Baltic Sea

Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kuchinskis proposed to hold a discussion within NATO on the restriction on the conduct of exercises near the borders of neighboring countries. Because of the Russian test rocket launches in the Baltic Sea, Latvia had to partially close commercial airspace in the region, the republic said.

This is a show of strength.
- said the Prime Minister of Latvia Maris Kuchinskis, adding that it is difficult to realize that the exercises are so close to the Latvian borders. According to him, the tests are carried out in the exclusive economic zone of Latvia, but outside the territorial waters of the country.

Because of this, according to the Latvian authorities, they had to close part of their airspace for three days of testing. Latvia also claims that Russian exercises have never happened so close to its territory. Kuchinskis connects this with the expulsion of Russian diplomats from European countries in connection with the case of Skripal.

At the same time, Latvia recognizes that Russia does not violate any international rules and has the right to conduct exercises. However, the Ministry of Defense of the republic still caused the Russian military attache to express his concern and raise the question of deadlines.

It is noted that Latvijas Gaisa satiksme (air traffic management in Latvia) has not yet noticed anything extraordinary in the launch zone of Russian missiles, said LGS representative Arnis Lapins. According to him, this is explained by the fact that Latvia was able to agree in advance with Russia on the relocation of the rocket firing zone to less loaded airspace.

As reported, the Main Center of the Unified Air Traffic Management System of the Russian Federation informed Latvia that during the period from 4 to 6 in April, the Russian naval forces would conduct missile launches over the Latvian exclusive economic zone.

      Latvian infrastructure will begin to prepare for war: now railways and road bridges are not suitable for the transfer of heavy military equipment
      Prior to the introduction of the Rail Baltica project, it was not possible to send military cargo by rail, for example, from Germany to Lithuania or Latvia, due to the different railway gauges in Western Europe and ours. Now, at the border, it would be necessary to reload armored vehicles from one train to another, which would take a lot of time. Not designed for the movement of tanks and some road bridges.

      [quote] [That is, if without tantrums, can you agree with Russia? / quote] So they first agreed, and then they made a hysteria, because on the messages about agreements with Russia, the political and economic plus sign from Uncle Sam could not be earned. It's like a nagging about the turned off transponders of the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Russian Navy, and the inclusion of the rear with our proposal for flights and their aircraft with transponders turned on.

    However, the republic’s defense ministry still called in the military attaché of Russia to express its concern and raise the question of timing.
    So they asked: "How long will you tolerate our Russophobia and behavior?"

    The exercises are held in accordance with international rules, but the sprats must necessarily stick their tongue out and smell the next rotten dirty trick. This is something from the category: "Past Milky’s house, I will not pass quietly ........."

    You said correctly!!! Prohibit any maneuvers less than 300 km to the border of a neighboring state (from Riga to Russia about 300 km laughing ), and then the NATO equipment is sickened up on the roads, everything in Latgale is working out variants of an attack on the Russian Federation.

      The Baltic states gained independence from Moscow from the hands of Moscow and made their free choice - it became a springboard, training ground and target. This happiness is a sin to complain.

    Latvia will complain about missile launches in the Baltic Sea

    Epic Heroes! Complaining about a rocket that flies past you is not affected by its trajectory. And if you are, you will complain THERE!

    Who cares, where does Russia launch rockets on its territory? Chukhna still needs to get out of manure.

    Our farmer cannot understand in any way that Latvia is quite a front zone with all the consequences. And since the owners declared the state of war with Russia (even if hybrid), it somehow surprises him with his inability to look at this territory from this point of view, considering not a map of the Baltic states, but at least a map of Europe.

    They were given the command to bark towards Russia in full focus. Even the wind will not blow that way, they will say it’s our fault. Only you don’t need to piss against the wind, otherwise it will blow off.
