There is no oil! German general ruled out the seizure of the Baltic states by Russia

A former high-ranking German general, 65-year-old Hans-Lothar Domrese said that Russia would not attack the Baltic countries, since there is no oil there, and the country already has access to the Baltic Sea.


There is no oil! German general ruled out the seizure of the Baltic states by Russia


I do not think that the Russians will attack the Baltic countries. From a military-technical point of view, they can do it, because it’s about small countries. But why? There is no oil, Russia has access to the Baltic Sea
- he said in an interview with Deutsche Welle.

According to him, the loss in the event of an attack on the Baltic States can be huge, in addition, there is a risk of World War III.

I do not think that President Vladimir Putin and his advisers like this idea. Therefore, there, in the Baltic countries, the situation is stable
- he said.

Domrese added that, despite the situation in Ukraine, he is optimistic and believes that NATO and the West will succeed in reaching a constructive dialogue with Russia.

It should be noted that NATO countries regularly talk about the danger of Russian attacks on the Baltic states, but these statements were not supported by anything and were used to build up military power on the eastern flank of the North Atlantic Alliance.

        My youngest somehow Amersky cartoon watched about the "evil birds." According to the plot, the pigs without invitation came to the birds, they destroyed everything and took the eggs to devour. When the birds came and attacked the pigs to pick up the eggs with the chicks, the pigs called it unprovoked aggression. I didn’t even think that the Anglo-Saxons could joke on themselves like that. It turned out - a life cartoon based on real events laughing

        Why not attack if asked?
        Only the path will fulfill several prerequisites:
        1. A referendum will be held that they need this attack and they simply demand it.
        2. If the referendum is a positive result, they must adopt the relevant laws and decisions of governments.
        3. Balts must guarantee the payment of travel, accommodation, beer and snacks.
        4. On other conditions, we even refuse to consider the possibility of occupation.

I’ll be declared a monopolist, but I’m ready to share it forever. The German general is somewhat right - Russia is not interested in the Baltic states, but I really want the opposite .... to the Baltic states. tongue

    He messed up something. The balts didn’t bother us, and not because there was no oil, but simply because they didn’t bother - from the word - at all.

    Russia has oil, even a booty chew, we do not need to attack someone.

    But there is one exceptional country that is only for oil and chasing around the world. Guess its name once.

It is necessary to provide all possible assistance with the move, and the remaining Russians are organized in the region, subjects of the Russian Federation. But Fashington will be against it - ringing dogs must be left in place. Amerzians love lackeys. The question seems to freeze, but the titular nations of the extincts will have to wait a long time until they die out.

    The losses will be huge. Extinctions will lose all of their members and strategic reserves of sprats

    But why do we need them (all three Baltic countries)? Kaliningrad sprats are still the best (I tried it recently), we also have enough shale and peat bogs. The factories and ports built by the USSR they are already ..... ....., let them continue Russophobia, but not with us, they will ask to go to Russia - not to take!

    There is no oil!


    according to their logic, so Ukraine is an oil-bearing region, because Russia, in their opinion, therefore "attacked" Ukraine.

    Joking as a joke, but paid for the Baltic states with gold (Peter I) and the blood of Russian (Soviet) soldiers. Our Baltic States. Sooner or later, we will take her back to the composition.

    The Baltic states, annexed 300 years ago by Peter the Great, and so ridiculously conspiring to give to the West by the corrupt Gorbi and the crafty Shevardnadze, will be crushed if medium-sized missiles are placed. These territories have been poor and joyless since Karamzin’s travel - sands and deserted shores .. but a convenient springboard for the threat of St. Petersburg and the gas terminal to be built in Ust-Luga.

    It begins to come that we need the Baltic states like a hare, the STOP signal. laughing We are so glad that we got rid of these parasites.

    There are many Russians living there.

    The poor, they have been oppressed for almost 30 years, but the guys hold on tightly to EU passports and do not rush home.

    Yes, they all swear at a penny. He doesn’t explain to us, but not very well, that the amber superpowers didn’t come into contact with the Russians. And he doesn’t increase military budgets.

    We need the Baltic states. The east of Latvia and Estonia are Russian regions, and Lithuania is a land corridor to the Kaliningrad region.

    Interestingly, does this general know history at all?
    It was like that with the Baltic states. At first, the Swedish king and the Russian tsar did not divide something there. And as expected, they got a war. At that time, the Russian Tsar won, and as a result of this victory, the territory of the present Baltic became Russian. Then the Russian Tsar thought for a little while, and after thinking, he decided that it was not good to take away the lands from his neighbors. And he bought this already conquered land from the defeated Swedish king.
    Then the German emperor decided to attack Russia. Once decided, then attacked, in 1914. Then the First World War happened. As a result of this war, non-German soldiers on German bayonets “squeezed” not only the Baltic states, but also the Finnish principality from Russia. And the Russian city of Warsaw in addition.
    Here is such a Nemethchina obtained by a German general.
    It would be interesting to listen to this general, what he has to say in justification for such an outright robbery. And for the second time, in general, Nemetchina swung at Russian Everything: the Volga and the Urals. Yes, overstrained a little.
    Threat. But in Finland there is no oil either.

    You are mistaken general sprats !!! the most important strategic product for Russia; to the Russians without them is death. Seriously, Russia has changed its political and economic vector: “there is something to take, that means we will think,” it’s enough to produce freeloaders-parasites on its borders.

    In general, the United States is not exactly even in oil — the more oil in a number of countries — the less democracy there is in these countries.
