Infrastructure is not enough. Latvia refused to accept more NATO soldiers

After NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO is not going to strengthen its military presence in the Baltic States, the Latvian Defense Ministry said they did not see the need to deploy additional forces, reports Sputnik Latvia


NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg 19 April stressed that the alliance does not currently plan to strengthen the military presence in the Baltic region, but the task is to increase the level of operational readiness of forces.

Infrastructure is not enough. Latvia refused to accept more NATO soldiers


The Ministry of Defense of Latvia, in turn, reported that the Baltic country today does not see the need to increase the military presence of the alliance on its territory. Commenting on Stoltenberg’s statement, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Defense Janis Garison noted that he obviously meant the expansion of three NATO battalions stationed in the Baltic countries.

At the same time, we are, of course, working on the issue of the stationing of NATO forces in the event of a crisis in the region, as well as on existing projects. Although great efforts have been put in tidying up the infrastructure, we cannot take more of the forces of the alliance, since the infrastructure is limited
- He explained.

In any case, there is now no discussion in NATO about the need to strengthen the elements of the above-mentioned battalions. We consider it important to integrate these elements into the overall command and integrate with the armed forces of Latvia. In quantitative terms, in the current situation of the NATO forces in Latvia is enough
- Garysons concluded.

According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, NATO has already deployed an 10-thousandth offensive force grouping in the Baltic countries and Poland. According to him, a significant increase in the military power of NATO around the borders of Russia, especially in Europe, is of great concern. The Minister stressed that Russia will maintain its armed forces at a level that guarantees the military security of the country and its allies.

              Although much effort has been put into putting the infrastructure in order, we cannot accept the alliance’s forces anymore, since infrastructure is limited

              Last year we already discussed a similar situation. It's simple: the sewer can not cope ... wink

      personal fresh sensation from Latvia - a dilapidated country. the center of Riga looks good, the rest is much worse, and even further, in the village - full of firewood. I was unpleasantly surprised.
      And people do not look happy, somehow everything is drowning. The WEF House of Culture is neat and tidy even (in the evening), and the WEF itself has long been gone. These are the EU and NATO.
      There are many places for the NATO contingent, if in tents. But the infrastructure ... probably not really, except to ask the NATO for the money to restore the failed cowsheds.

          Is this really what aspired to restoring independence?

      Shaigu tso such cowards ...

      Kuzhegetovich? No, he is just very calm and realizes his possibilities. But the Baltic establishment, God forgive me, is hysterical every time the Pskov division enters the training ground, and they have been in their place for more than a dozen years.
      Nothing of their own remains, even the press works as "civilized": they gave the command - they ran. Sometimes it’s worth considering what the Allies put up for the Baltic states. Take a word: your elites understand everything, personal experience, but continue to lie to everyone and everything. To continue to allow parasites ...

    According to the head of the Russian Defense Ministry, Sergei Shoigu, NATO has already deployed a 10-strong offensive force in the Baltic countries and Poland. According to him, a significant increase in NATO’s military power around the borders of Russia, especially in Europe, causes serious concern.

    They feel how much Russia can protect itself.
    All these fakes in Syria and the assertion that Russia is aggressive is only to create a group near the borders of Russia, and attacks on Syria are a check, so Russia can protect itself. Everyone knows perfectly well that Russia will not attack anyone, but in the Western media it’s just hysteria that Russia will attack. Here they can attack Russia, accusing it of something ....
