Latvia did not wait for the Russian missiles. Latvian Ministry of Defense requires clarification

81
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov commented on the statements of various "experts" who claim that the American, British and French missiles were not hit by air defense weapons in Syria. According to Sergey Lavrov, the Russian military department has specific statistics and evidence.


Against this background, the claims made to Latvia by Latvia draw attention to themselves. If in the USA they say that American missiles are not intercepted, and Russia says the opposite, then in Latvia they are indignant why Russia did not carry out “previously announced launches”. We are talking about the coordination of the command of the Russian Navy with the Latvian authorities of the time and place of training missile launches by the Baltic Fleet.

Claims about the fact that Latvia "did not wait for" Russian missiles, says Defense Minister Raymond Bergmanis (quote TASS):
We did not observe launches in this sector, so it is very difficult for us to understand why this situation has already developed for the second time. We now have no explanations, which we have always asked the Russian side, about what will happen in these areas so that we can notify and try to reassure the society and meet high safety standards. The Baltic Sea and the airspace over the Baltic Sea is one of those places that is very intensively used for civilian traffic, so the situation must be safe so that no unpredictable situations can occur there.

Latvia did not wait for the Russian missiles. Latvian Ministry of Defense requires clarification


Bergmanis:
We want to receive information from the Russian Federation as to why the declared exercises did not take place the second time. I have no data, maybe it happened for technical reasons. I still have no explanation why we did not observe anything in closed sectors.


A surprising fact: when Russia conducts exercises with firing, in the Baltic States shout that the Russian army and navy "show aggression"; when Russia does not fire, they say they are at a loss: why weren’t missiles launched?

              For me, the situation looks something like this:
              Russia: - We are closing this area. We will conduct training firing.
              Latvia: - You have no right! We fear!
              Russia: - Okay, we won’t.
              Latvia: - Late! We already settled ..!

          The ship is not stealth. In addition, he is with the transponder turned on, so it is known where he is. But launches really could be. They let some zircon which is not detected by NATO machinery. It’s kind of built for that so that the surprise was

          The explanation for the Latvian Ministry of Defense, the planned launches were postponed due to the ailment of the captain of the ship responsible for these launches. In connection with the ingestion by the above captain of the sprats produced by the above state. Therefore, the above state bears all responsibility for the failure of the above launches. concern to the aforementioned state in connection with the unjustified use by the aforementioned state of non-combat toxic substances against the peaceful crew of the ship responsible for these launches. We expect explanations from the aforementioned state in connection with hostile actions against the aforementioned crew that undermine peace and stability in the region. tongue

      But there is nothing to be surprised at ?! My wife is a Latvian citizen. Former thank God citizen. So, when she went to brides I had to go to Dvinsk (Daugavpils) to get acquainted with her family. In the invitation, of course, she wrote how the purpose of the visit is marriage! I tried to persuade her not to write this, but of course I instantly ran into a scandal! Babskie little things - maybe you don’t want to get married at all?!?! And of course, they didn’t let me in safely - three times! Fair. They are afraid of Russian senior officers, and this, in principle, is logical on their part!) I drove through Lithuania with the help of my Lithuanian army friends. I was amazed by the other - my wife could not renounce citizenship !!! All the time, one garbage or another ... I don’t know, maybe we spoiled them some statistics ?! In short, I once asked one official once again talking about European paradise - or maybe you are hinting that I also take my mother-in-law to Russia ?! Do not wait! The question was resolved with the help of all the same friends!) So, if the Russians promised to shoot and for some reason they don’t shoot for the Latvians, this is a situation close to disaster! They can sue us for some sort of international! Well, or just start to run up in a panic ... Therefore, purely out of a sense of humanity, I suggest I still shoot!

    It was right and did under the Soviet Union that they were all held under tight control by all of them - this whole Baltic is not reliable. So look so that the bayonet is not stuck in the back. And when the control was so quiet it was all - they were afraid to rock the boat because they knew that at times the tail will be crushed.

    Since Russia closed a certain area under the pretext of missile launches, but there weren’t any, it means that in reality the Russians planned something bad there) - probably this is the logic of Latvia.

    As in a joke:

    In a communal two-room apartment, one room is occupied by a young family with a child, and the second is a lonely drunk. He had a bad habit: returning home at 2 at one in the morning, he took off his shoes and threw them at the wall. The neighbors got tired of this, and his husband advised him. He promised not to buzz. Returning once again, a drunken neighbor, out of habit, took off his shoe and threw it against the wall, but then he remembered the promise, quietly put the second one on the floor and fell asleep. Wakes up from knocking on the door. On the threshold of a neighbor: - Listen, do you have a conscience? We have not been sleeping for two hours - we are waiting for you to throw your second boot.

    When their patience ran out, the neighbor warned the peasant that if you did it even once, you would get into the snout.
    The next evening, when a man came home, he forgot about the warning and threw a heavy boot into the wall, but then he remembered the conversation and quietly took off the second one.
    In the morning he was woken by the doorbell, opening it, he immediately got in the face of a neighbor.
    -For what? I just threw one ...

    A surprising fact: when Russia conducts exercises with firing, in the Baltic States shout that the Russian army and navy "show aggression"; when Russia does not fire, they say they are at a loss: why weren’t missiles launched?

    And in my opinion, everything is more or less clear. Under the general hum of Russian aggression and the desire to please the owner, Latvia most likely brought a bunch of equipment for scanning and analyzing the "aggressor" missile launches, most likely a vessel like the Marjata reconnaissance ship was dragged, but there weren’t any launches!
    For grandmas spent in the empty need someone to answer.
    Remember the story of the submarine at the norgs, and so the indignation was no longer from the fact that the country's Navy could not find the underwater vehicle of Russia, but because they spent money from the treasury on pokatuha!

And then, "pricked and, falling asleep, forgotten" and, waking up, the expected events were not recorded. Go to the tincture of moonshine on chicken droppings! Then you will see everything!

    Who cares about the Wishlist of the Baltic doggies?

    Colleagues, our Balts are elementary trolling. When a warning about the exercises appears, then NATO will also drive down reconnaissance ships and planes and agents, etc. This is direct income to the Baltic states. If these exercises are in international waters, there are the same rules. But next to Kaliningrad, the views are in the territorial waters of Russia. As we want, we are learning - our business is to warn. In short, it is expensive for NATO to gather its resources to control everything announced by our exercises. And ours does not matter. After the second or third Oblama, NATO will cease to organize and pay for this banquet for the Balts. Hence the "bewilderment."

    No, the guys are Latvian shooters, we both shot off normally. It’s just that these missiles were a little newer.

    They would have kicked a couple of times through the labi, so that we wouldn’t be nervous and would not wind our nerves

    And I thought the Estonians were very slow. It turns out that Latvians are even more “inhibited”. The Russian Navy went into the area, shot back, returned to base. But the Latvians just woke up and asked if they could get their diapers dirty?

    Just Latvians did not deserve a rocket. Let them try further.
