Rails of the wrong system. The United States called the Baltic railways an obstacle for NATO

84
The Institute of Modern Warfare, which belongs to the United States Military Academy at West Point, published a report in which it noted that the railways of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia pose a problem for the rapid movement of alliance forces due to different standards, since in these countries the railways still remain since the days of the Soviet Union and have not changed, RT


Rails of the wrong system. The United States called the Baltic railways an obstacle for NATO


This incompatibility means that trains carrying military equipment and supplies from large NATO bases in Germany or Poland will have to move their cargo to trains adapted to the Russian track, or to deliver it to its destination by truck. Both options require not only considerable time, but also the involvement of trained personnel and substantial military resources, such as heavy equipment transportation systems, military police and security guards. In addition, awareness is needed in such operations and the ability to conduct them
- reported in the material.

It also notes that Russia is actively using the railway communication to transfer its military units. As an example, the document cites the “Zapad” exercise, which took place last year, when Russia used trains to transport forces to neighboring Belarus.

Vladimir Anokhin, Vice-President of the Russian Academy of Geopolitical Problems, commenting on this situation, said that under current conditions, the Alliance would need at least two days under the most comfortable conditions to transfer NATO troops from Germany to the borders of Russia.

Experts of the American Institute of Modern Warfare emphasize that in the field of railway infrastructure, the Baltic countries are significantly lagging behind other European states.

Plans to remedy the current situation already exist. Thus, the EU has planned the implementation of the Rail Baltica project - the construction of a European standard railway line, which should connect the Baltic countries, Poland and Western Europe. However, the report notes that the project will be completed no earlier than 2025.

Experts recommend resolving the issue of the Baltic railways as soon as possible. The modernization of railway lines will create advantages for NATO, according to the institute.

    Now you need to shift all the railway tracks. It remains for the Baltic states to solve the main question: where is the money Zin? Or, as always, will Germans and custodians pay for everything? They are the richest in the EU.

            In the days of the USSR, 8 million were not recruited in the entire Baltic. Now, reduce it by a third, that is, within 6 million.

            What are 10 million? In Estonia, the population is 1,3 million, in Latvia 1,9 million, in Lithuania 2,8 million people, a total of 6 million people, and experts are sure that these are exaggerated figures, since the authorities of these countries take into account their citizens who have left to work and live in Western Europe as permanently residing in their own countries. In real life, about 5,5 million people live.

          But they want to tear it from Russia. And the detachment is usually paid voluntarily by the detonators themselves. And if such crazy ideas appear, then they talk about the insecurity of the owners in the behavior of their slaves tomorrow.
          Because, it seems to me, from a military point of view, it is not necessary to redo kalea. Well, they will not pull it to Vladivostok (or do they think Moscow will be enough?). And it’s better to change the composition in the rear than on the front line

              "... in these countries, railways have remained since the days of the Soviet Union and have not changed"
              This is thanks to the tsar-priest, when he was deciding on the railway track being built in the Russian Empire. This track helped the USSR at the beginning of the Second World War, limiting the transfer of Wehrmacht troops. The decision was far-sighted.

          And I did not get bored with repeating these mantras. The average salary in Estonia is 1000 EUR.
          There are 800 in Latvia. The minimum wage is 430.
          Go to the West to earn 2 - 3 thousand. No one is going to Russia. Is this not alarming?
          As for the railway roads. The institute says one thing, the military says another. They conducted several times exercises.
          Delivery of equipment to ports and to non-equipped sites, loading onto platforms, moving east, exercises. It seems like they were satisfied.

        And, the Baltic states will certainly not be the owners of these railway communications on their land, as well as the entire logistics system.

      Shifting the canvas gives NATO advantages, but in conditions of warfare, which, most likely, will not take place. But it will cut off the possibility of transit from Russia through the territory of the Baltic states, in peacetime, that is, forever. What will happen the next day after the end of the alteration.

      The perestroika process itself is not so fast, and for the duration of the work, the movement will be stopped altogether.
      I do not see the possibility of an instant transition from one standard to another of wagons when moving along MORE not converted and ALREADY converted tracks. Another question is interesting - who will pay both the transfer of tracks and the replacement of wheelsets in rolling stock.

        I understand that we are talking about a separate railway line to connect with Europe, and not a replacement for the entire internal network. Although, too, this is money. Remember how long we have built a detour around Ukraine? So we have Russian Railways troops built, and only a small segment. And here you need to flash the line all the Baltic States.

Is it possible to foresee this? War (if that ....) is an unpredictable thing, and what seems impossible today, tomorrow is absolutely necessary. Poles, specially (in their 30s) remade their railways from the Russian standard to the European one. To, therefore, impede the advancement of our troops. Did it help? We just used Polish rolling stock. But we could reach such a simple solution. They could not do it. The Baltic states are no smarter than these pompous little ones.

        Rail Baltika has been under construction for many years, do not think that it is fast. The load on Lithuanian railways is very low, there are no cargoes. Klaipeda port is standing. Only transit to the Kaliningrad region is valid.

It was we who changed the carts to the western gauge, and our cars traveled across Europe, and not vice versa! And now it turns out that our cars can travel across Europe, but we do not have their cars! And in the near future nothing can be changed!

Changing the canvas is only half the battle, and the second half is replacing the wheelset carts throughout the rolling stock. This is a huge cost, in the absence of a positive economic exhaust, and since there is no profitability, then there are no those who are ready to invest in this dubious event.

      Well, what kind of loan? Private banks allocate money for the Baltic economy, which is completely hanging on the neck of the EU? No! They are well aware of the loans they will not give. It is only the EU itself that can provide subsidies for this project. And without the UK, the budget decreased by a substantial share. Moreover, this project has been under development since 2007.

            Out of 9000 km of the operational length of the road, as of 1990, 596,4 km were electrified,

        (yawning) aaaaaa, but what about the collapse of imperialism? America hated already collapsed ??
        There is a famous freak from economics called Alexworld. On his adventure for 10 years, he has been leading the theme of “the collapse of the so-called shale revolution.” Even though the United States is in first place for oil production. This one, shale. I am amazed at the stubbornness of such steel people.

    To alter railways is an expensive and not fast business.

    Yes, let them alter! They will lose those remnants of transit to the Russian Federation. No one will be steamed, change railway wagons immediately to Ust-Luga or elsewhere.
    And all this for the fact that a company of tanks from Germany hold? lol hi

    that trains transporting military equipment and supplies from large NATO bases in Germany or Poland will have to transfer their cargo to trains adapted to the Russian rut, or deliver it to their destination by truck
    Destination - the borders of Russia? I don’t understand - do they want to concentrate large formations of military equipment at our borders? What kind of vegetable? Well, if the word “if” or “for example” was inserted, they don’t even feel shy. Normal statement.

      To be objective, it is still the territory of NATO and on their territory they can do what they see fit, just like we do on our own. Therefore, one should not be indignant, but take countermeasures, which, by the way, is now being done. Look at how many newest weapons in the last year alone, the Western Military District has received.

    Well, yes, because as long as they deliver their equipment on a crossroads, we can deliver our own to Tallinn and Riga in hours. Armored trains stand on the siding.

    With Rail Baltic it is not decided yet! Because of Brexit, priorities for payments to countries from different euro funds are changing! Decided to support the countries of southern Europe. The Baltic states, like Poland in transit. Plus, Estonia does not want to support the project! The project itself is very costly and not economically viable! Only as an infrastructure for transporting NATO troops! Therefore, it is moved mainly for this!

    Wow, how openly NATO announces its plans for an imminent attack on Russia !!! Are the “general people” so sure of their own victory that they don’t even hide their aggressive preparations, which are almost in a feverish hurry ?!
    Once again, it proves that Washington’s “hegemons” absolutely do not give a damn about the post-Soviet republics that they colonized and their economic development (about which, at every corner, fooling their “lochtorat”, local compradors and their intellectual servants, like: The West will help us, will help us! it will restore order ...) - they see them only as a “expendable" frontal field in the planned hot (since, this is already mega-obvious by the results of the presidential election, the Russian Federation will not be able to smash-colonize an inspired, American embassy, ​​pseudo "people's revolution") war to destroy the Russian state and seize rich natural resources ...
    And in Ukraine, “diplomatically” overthrown by the “people's revolution”, “non-alternative Euro-associates” of Yanukovych-Azarov, associates by that time would be in full swing with a “quiet glanders,” the vast railway network in a “European” fashion, despite the gigantic long-term damage to the economy of its own "power", if only to continue to "have no liking" to the Euro-lords and their overseas curators ... winked , but their "alternative" fellow travelers on "Euroassociation", also archi "diligent", can’t do this themselves (organizationally and economically), much has changed since then ...?

    And in Kaliningrad there is still the German standard. And on Sakhalin - Japanese. And it’s not so easy to alter: tunnels and bridges are not our size ... And in Finland - the standard of the Russian Empire = 60 inches (4 mm more than in the Russian Federation = 1520 mm In Sweden, 1435 mm ... There is generally a reshuffle with all neighbors : Norway and Denmark - change of tension, Germany, Poland - ferry and change of tension, Finland - change of gauge ... And then there are some Baltic states!

      Build something is not a problem. But the question is, what kind of cargo will you carry back and forth? A third of the population is already there. Further, with the development of relations, and the further withering away of your own production, the natural aging of the population, in a couple of decades, half of you will remain. Collapses have a sad tendency to collapse with nonlinear acceleration. Nobody needs you (neither us nor the EU). But the choice has been made. Feather in the ass and tailwind, ex-brothers.

    Now you need to shift all the railway tracks. It remains for the Baltic states to solve the main question: where is the money Zin? Or, as always, will Germans and custodians pay for everything? They are the richest in the EU.

    Project financing has already been approved and money will be allocated. The construction was supposed to begin already 5 years ago, but local elites could not share pieces of the pie of such a large project, but if a tough team comes from Brussels, they will quickly obey and begin to build.

      You will achieve the remnants of transit with these adjustments. Tailwind.
      Poles, in the 30s, changed their railway tracks to the European standard. To make it difficult to advance the Soviet troops, if that .... Well, so what? Did it help? Yes, we just used Polish rolling stock. But the Germans said thanks to them. You are no smarter than these idiots.

      It’s impossible to think so linearly! Is there something like a tram in a small town driving along one line only? There are nooks there. And the Internet is also there. It’s hard to see for yourself which railway network is there?
