        The mess in the places of "rest" of the crews is guaranteed, this is a real threat.
        The rest ... well, let’s see, we’ll check all goal control systems. Baltic Fleet aviation will be trained, also useful.

      Actually, the article deals with some 14 states and neutral Sweden. But this is already serious and interesting.

          The forces of these states are superior to our naval capabilities in the Baltic, so I would not focus on the low power of the Baltic states with their minesweepers. To strengthen its capabilities, NATO plans to build a naval base in Klaipeda and deploy some of the forces there permanently. The Baltic states are only the receiving side and the top an iceberg, with them there is little demand for combat effectiveness. This is if you seriously analyze the situation (without "gee-gee" towards the Baltic states)

          You also read about the quantitative and qualitative composition of the Swedish Navy. They are stronger than the Baltic Fleet in all respects. And this is without the rest of NATO. Funny huh?

                By the way, a significant part of the Finns don’t know how large the civilian casualties were in besieged Leningrad, and when they find out they become therefore scared

                Why and how? They do not approach our shores, at a flying distance of both missiles and their aircraft! Ocean creatures.
                That question is not relevant, only in cartoons of horror stories and sofa expert identities.

    lately, the Baltic gods of war have not been heard lately. Usually stable every other day about whine, about aggression, about solidarity about Russia. Everybody stumbled.

      So Geyropa handouts reduced. Here against Russia and whining has become less. They realize that they can generally stay with nothing.)))

    When we still participated in Baltops, these exercises were aimed at ensuring safety at sea. Coordination of the rescue operations of the crews of different countries, communication between them, familiarization with various means and methods of rescue, etc. In general, these teachings can be evaluated positively. What now became with them - I do not know.
    And the port of Klaipeda is empty, not counting the gas carrier - the hub. Take ships for their joy.

    Navy exercises Baltops are annual and held since 1997
    So we have already worked out the reaction and actions to these teachings. Fifteen countries are working on interaction, and they give us the opportunity to observe this and draw the appropriate conclusions. Army-navy routine.
