German media: Vostok-2018 is comparable to the largest operations of World War II

50
German newspaper Handelsblatt commented on the large-scale exercises of the Russian Armed Forces "Vostok-2018". As you know, these exercises are held in conjunction with the military of the People’s Liberation Army of China. German journalists, assessing the scale of the Russian-Chinese maneuvers, note that this scale is comparable to the largest operations of the Second World War.


Reuters writes that in this way "Russia sends a signal to the whole world."

German media: Vostok-2018 is comparable to the largest operations of World War II


The main idea of ​​the German edition is as follows:
Russia has actually turned Washington’s main fear into reality: military cooperation between Moscow and Beijing.

The experts, to whom the German publication refers, note that the Russian signal is that Russia is not isolated and is able to conduct constructive negotiations with major partners, including negotiations on cooperation in the military and military-technical fields.

It was also noted that Russia and China are working to deepen economic cooperation, which is also a kind of example for the United States on how to build relations with mutual consideration of interests in the modern world.

Recall that in the maneuvers "Vostok-2018" take part not only Russian and Chinese, but also Mongolian military personnel.

      Like this, to whom. The Mongols threaten France, China to everyone else, and we cover the rear. After all, the main thing for Nata is that no one is threatening anyone, but they are threatening us to shout louder, and the substitutes are inflating the censer to heaven. And the province went to write. And Masha Zakharova will again make excuses. But we must not justify ourselves, but give a good crack to some people, so that the hat flies off our heads, and warn us for the future, you’ll vanish again, break all relations and reconsider the borders. We will be silent, they will poke a finger at us, and we just need to break it so that there is nothing to poke, and others will beware. bully

        Putin is doing everything right, showing our peacefulness and gentleness. This disarms the hawks, does not give them an obvious reason to shout: - "Atu them, ATU!" Yes, and the foreign public, as long as we do not make sharp movements, treats us with understanding (sympathy, sympathy). Everyone wants to live in peace and not tremble for the life of their children, relatives and friends. This is the first.
        Secondly, the economy of the country, which ranks 11th in the world in terms of GDP, will not be able to withstand a long-term armed conflict of high intensity. And this is as true as: "two + two Xs for two = SIX!" And to start a small "victorious" nuclear war on ETVD, growing into a general nuclear world war - well, somehow "not comme il faut"! Everyone wants to live a little longer, and you too!
        Therefore, with tenacity worthy of a better application, we will smile and slowly pick the tunnel towards the bright DAY OF EXEMPTION from the hegemony of the exceptional ...
        Third, in carrying out these maneuvers, we openly demonstrate "xy is xy"! on a large geopolitical chessboard. Trump's patrons must finally understand that NATO resources will not be enough against two Euro-Asian monsters! If they continue to persist in their "dolbo-cretinism", then we will only have to sign an agreement on friendship and mutual assistance between the PRC and the Russian Federation. But this narrows the room for maneuver for both countries. For after that the world will turn from a lot of polarity into a bipolar one! And then we will have to pull the Indians over to our side. And this is so tedious: "to drag a hippopotamus out of the swamp"! laughing
        Somehow, however.

          Your peacefulness and kindness cost people, Russians, by the way, years in prison, and it’s illegal. It’s good to talk about this peacefulness while sitting on the couch. And why did you decide that to give a crack, it is necessarily military operations, I would write differently. And they would have thrown into the Crosses or Lefortovo, heels, another hegemony, would have sung differently. Lakham would be blocked off oxygen in the trading part for the demolition of monuments. In short, there would be a desire to stand up for one's own, and on whom to win back and the reasons for this can always be found.

            I understand you ... But in the international isolation due to elephant movements in the arena, in the current situation, I would not advise you to voluntarily climb! There are mn institutes where our politico-diplomatic methods protect their citizens. But, if you drove to the mn business level and decided to cut the money down the drain, then answer mn law to the fullest extent possible.
            Another thing is that the Yankees steal our citizens in piracy and judge them according to their own laws, violating bilateral and um agreements to extradite criminals to the jurisdiction of the country of which the offender is a citizen. Here - yes, ama - radishes! and we don’t have any faith on them yet ... That is our weakness ... And the Yankees know about it. And this will continue to be done until we give them an impudent mug. And we can only do this by crawling out of our economic ass, at least into the six leading economies of the world.
            Something like that, however.

          What does the Russian economy have to do with it, if the elite in the Russian Federation does not live. The worst thing that will happen from the military conflict is that the excessively acquired will be arrested.

        Yes, the point is different) training is the tenth thing. The very fact of conducting joint exercises between us is a real hemorrhoids for striped. If in the coming years our factory and whales will also build some kind of joint factory or shipyard for the production of something from the theme of the military-industrial complex, it’ll probably burn in there!

        And this is also, or rather, a must. Practically all major Russian exercises, with the exception of the last "West", are reduced, in general, to one thing - the transfer of a mass of troops over long distances in the shortest possible time while maintaining their full combat capability (from wheels to battle). We started with the divisions, now we have actually reached the fronts. And the Americans drive the brigade around Europe for months, sometimes the roads are not like that, sometimes the bridges ... As the saying goes: sometimes the T-shirt is short, sometimes the horseradish is knee-deep.

      To begin with, it would not hurt to conduct joint maneuvers of the ships of the PRC Navy and our Mediterranean squadron in the southeastern part of Mediterranean. Yes, with a real launch of anti-ship missiles at a spaced target position, carrying out a long-term search operation of foreign submarines, a sudden "flyby" of YES and MRA with launches of CD along the coast (as an option!). This is so that the striped ambitions diminish, and their NATO partners have (finally) "clearing their minds" (c).

    You have universal plans: to force NATO to reduce arms in Europe with just one exercise. And suddenly the result of their panic will be the buildup of arms in Europe, what then?
    There is another benefit from these exercises: "Russia and China are working on economic cooperation," and if we consider that China threatens American profits, there have been publications about this, it will be like a sledgehammer over crystal balls
