Lithuania asked NATO for additional protection against Russian attack

Lithuania requested NATO additional forces and means of defense against the "Moscow attack". Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda made a corresponding request to the Secretary General of the Alliance Jens Stoltenberg. It is reported by the Lithuanian edition Delphi.


Lithuania asked NATO for additional protection against Russian attack


Speaking at a joint briefing after a meeting with NATO Secretary General, the Lithuanian president said that the international allied battalion stationed in 2017 in Lithuania was a reliable means of deterring Russia, but its forces were clearly not enough to protect the republic from Russian attacks.

We have achieved a high level of deterrence, but much more needs to be done in the defense sector. We are very pleased to host the NATO forward-based battalion in Lithuania, but this is not enough

- stressed Nauseda.

According to him, at present, a real threat to Lithuania’s national security is the Russian military group concentrated in the Kaliningrad region. Given the large concentration of Russian forces in this region, the Baltic countries intend to receive guarantees that in the event of a conflict, NATO fighters on the territory of the republics also carried out defense tasks, and the alliance more often sent air defense units to their territory to conduct exercises.

As previously reported, the Baltic countries are trying to get from NATO to strengthen the existing international battalions on their territory with air defense and naval defense. In addition, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia require guarantees that in the event of an armed conflict with Russia, when they are "cut off" from the rest of Europe after the capture of the Suvalki corridor, NATO did not abandon them.

    I can imagine what a "gap pattern" between the British and Americans. Those. how to not quit? Yes, and the requirements ... Fucked sprats.
    The history of WWII suggests that it is precisely these two latter that betray allies. And the rest of NATO, well, such as Germany and France - despite the "screams" - if cho, then they will not climb ...

      Do you seriously think that this is a pure initiative of Lithuania? I’m afraid there was a cry of statehood. As for me, this requirement was put forward by the exclusives in order to break in response a little, purely for the look, and agree. You can kill several birds with one stone. The troops are fed, shod, are in the operational spaces of the "union" state in full support. In the immediate vicinity of the borders of the country is the "aggressor". They can perform concurrently the functions of “intimidation”, “horror” of “bringing to submission” and all at the expense of others. Something will also be transferred to the treasury!

        The only sign of the real sovereignty of a state is exclusively its own armed forces.
        I wanted to shine))), but actually expressed the thoughts of Alexander III:
        Throughout the world, we have only two faithful allies - our army and navy.
        and Lenin:
        Every revolution is only worth something if it can defend itself.
        Without a strong army ("On earth, in heaven and at sea ...") any "state" is just a running errand for a real sovereign.)

      I remembered a joke ...
      America gave the Lithuanian army 40 thousand decommissioned M-14 rifles. In Lithuania, they thought for a long time how to divide all the rifles into 16 thousand army. As a result, a truly ingenious decision was made. Each soldier was given three rifles. One to shoot. The second, to shoot if the first jammed, and the third was given in the teeth, to shoot from it, if all the previous ones fail. "
      Armed to the teeth, Lithuanians are a terrible thing! laughing

    A patient with delusions of persecution, even in a dull bunker behind meter-high walls, will not be calmer. In addition, such patients most often pose a threat to others because of their aggressive and inappropriate behavior. To give weapons to such sick people - go from ism and provocation of pure water. But the United States is doing just that - they first cultivate a schizo and then arm it.

    additional forces and means to protect against the "Moscow attack"
    If you constantly shout in vain: “Wolves, wolves!”, Then when the real “wolves” appear, no one will react to the cry. The Balts have already worn out the trend of the Russian attack on the Baltic to such an extent that even the Americans tolerate this only because there is a reason for the increase in NATO troops in this region.

    Bugaga three times.
    Not only that, in the existing realities, ALL NATO forces, hanging around the borders of Russia, are, in fact, wordless meat that does not exist for a week in the case of a globally hedgehog, as these limitrophies require something there. And the fifth (if I'm not mistaken) article in the NATO charter is not going to comply with the alliance forces. Subscribe to die for the Baltic states they are not interested in the word "ALL".

    To deter the Russian army in Lithuania, NATO troops are enough. But for the assault on the Kaliningrad UR it is still necessary. So Brussels is venturing through its puppet Nauseda about the need to deploy additional forces of the first wave.
    The Russian Federation has a purely defensive strategy against NATO. Therefore, the activity of the bloc in our western direction should not be seen not as presented by Western politicians /// protection from Russian aggression ///, but how this happened until the summer of 41 in the same places. Then the truth was that the Wehrmacht declared that the troops were arriving to rest before being thrown across the English Channel, the tank divisions in Prussia were concentrated under the guise of working battalions, etc. All this somewhat euthanized the average man. Now they are also euthanizing. These "working battalions" received tanks and rifles and advanced in the first wave. And the infantry divisions of the second stage were only still on the march, being transferred by train from Germany. The German General Staff calculated everything very meticulously and each division had its own schedule for entering the battle. They did not crowd at 4 in the morning en masse at the very border. Scene 1 in 1 with the current. Therefore, only the initiative of the Lithuanians is discussed in small detail.

      Moreover, this Lithuania is not needed to us for nothing, in order to conquer them! In this aspect - of course, enough, even with interest.

      Motorized units near the border also did not stand in a crowd. A few hours before the war, they were tens of kilometers from the border. They crossed the border almost immediately after a five-minute art. training. Now the mobility of troops has grown even stronger.

    Everything is simple, you need to remind yourself, to create the appearance of at least some significance, just in the 20th the program for financing the transition process and adaptation by the European Union ends, these wretched sub-states will have to somehow survive themselves, and even in the conditions of the loss of the eastern market and in fear before the responsibility for what they have been doing these years, in the event of establishing relations with Moscow. From a military point of view, the troops are pumping these so-called the colony country is hopeless, all who are there are suicide bombers, and in the very first hours of a possible conflict, as well as the population, moreover, the more troops, the more population.

    The Baltic states intend to receive guarantees that, in the event of a conflict, the NATO fighters available on the territory of the republics also carried out defense tasks,

    What other guarantees do they want? 5th article is not enough for them?

    And I’ll tell you what guarantees they need. Although they are turned all over, they understand one thing well - that no one will fight for them. The only thing that can guarantee that the Russian Federation will not send troops to them during the threatened period, and NATO will really defend this land area, is the deployment of nuclear weapons on their territory.
    But they will never wait for this.

    This is not Lithuania, but the Americans demand the deployment of additional forces in Lithuania. But Americans cannot admit this to the whole world. Because, Americans will look like aggressors and instigators of war. Therefore, everything is so politically twisted that this type of Lithuania wants to deploy the armed forces of other states on its territory. Like, all this the Lithuanians conceived. Americans against whom are they putting up their troops? Everyone knows and understands. Therefore, Lithuania also demands from the Americans that when the Americans run away, they did not leave it to their own devices ... That would not happen: "for their own political purposes they have been obsessed and abandoned."
