The USA will allocate 46 million dollars to Slovakia. NATO strengthens the east wing

Washington is ready to provide Slovakia with 46 million dollars to upgrade its national air force airbases, Dana Tsapakova, a spokeswoman for the republic’s defense minister, said in an interview with Slovak Radio.


The USA will allocate 46 million dollars to Slovakia. NATO strengthens the "east wing"


US support in the amount of 46 million dollars should be aimed at strengthening the defense capabilities of NATO on its eastern wing
- quotes Tsapakova TASS.

It is noted that these allocations will be allocated for the modernization of the Kukhine airbase, located in the west of the republic, as well as the Sliach airbase in the central part of the country. The main forces of the Slovak Air Force are based there.

It is intended, in particular, to increase the capacity for storing jet fuel and repair of runways. Both airbases use NATO aircraft during exercises in Slovakia.

Recall that in early April, the US State Department approved the possible sale of X-NUMX F-14 fighters to Slovakia worth $ 16 for Slovakia. It was noted that Slovakia is seeking to replace its air fleet, consisting of 2,91 MiG-12, and requested the purchase of 29 new fighter jets. Bratislava reflects on the acquisition of American F-14 and Swedish JAS 16 Gripen, reports Vzglyad

    It would be good for us to allocate money for the strengthening of Cuba, with the subsequent delivery of our strike complexes there. It is time to answer their Anaconda not only asymmetrically, but also linearly, so that they feel the crosshair of the sight on the forehead.

        Where 2, then 20 then ... in general I wonder at this so to say Slavic world. I look at the Anglo-Saxons, they hold on to each other, and ours, the so-called blood brothers, hang out like excrement in the ice hole. It's disgusting to look.

          We have already provided billions to our brothers and almost for free. Remember the USSR and all these fraternal peoples around the world and where they are now.

        Well, why, 23 million for each air base --- there will be enough money to expand the protected shelters for fuel and ammunition. It is clear that the modernization of the bases will be carried out not so much for the national air force, but as in the Baltic States --- to accommodate mixed air groups NATO to put pressure on Russia.

        allocated for modernization of air bases and not for the purchase of equipment. But for the modernization of the base is a decent amount.

        Damn, can you read? The text explicitly states that: "Washington is ready to provide Slovakia with 46 million dollars for modernization airbases "

        Here it is more likely to modernize airfields: western fighters, in addition to Tornado and A-10, require good lanes, preferably with asphalt pavement, remember the F-15 visit from Lengley to Lipetsk: the Americans were shocked by the lane. They cook them for themselves, spit on them at their lackeys, and pull up the airdrome equipment

      Judging by the one against whom NATO is directed, this is not the “eastern wing”, but the “slope” ... by and large ...

      I do not think that the USA is counting on them somehow. Unless as a service staff. In fact, mattresses are preparing an airfield for themselves, according to their standards, to accommodate the appropriate Amer aviation, in case they are ripe for us to go to war.

    Slovaks are serious warriors. In our city they gathered together in the Second World War. They showed themselves nobly. Just like the Czechs Otakar Yarosh and our Hero (First foreigner, awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union) ... He lived in the opposite quarter from me , he had an obelisk installed on our house in his honor a street named ... And Anders (Poles) were also there, but not for long ... But the fact that their descendants forgot our joint story with them ... It's a pity ...

    Sometimes there is no and you will think about it. But why should a state with a population and size of our region get involved in this, to put it mildly, adventure of almost 3 billion dollars worth? Then invest in content, etc. To be proud to be a member of NATO?

    I was in this Merge. Beautiful resort with mineral waters. There until 1990, the Soviet helicopter regiment stood. And in 1944, the airfield was used to deliver weapons and people by Soviet aircraft in aid of the Slovak uprising (which, however, was eventually crushed by the Germans). And the people there are not bad in the vicinity.

    Not this way. Pussy (it’s president) really, really wants to lick, buy, please ... only the parliament is against, the prime minister is against, the people are against. After the demonstration, Soros’s office was covered, so now his representative grazes almost at the president’s bed
