The United States decided to deploy a tank battalion on a permanent basis in Lithuania. The American military contingent will be located 10 kilometers from the Belarusian border. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania.


US deployed tank battalion near the border of Belarus


According to a published message, the 1st arrives in Lithuania tank battalion of the 9th regiment of the 1st division of the US Army. This battalion will be deployed at a military training ground near the city of Pabrade, about 10 km from the border with Belarus. At the same time, it is specified that the US military will not arrive for carrying out exercises, but for a long deployment.

Lithuania has repeatedly received units of US troops, but this was carried out as part of specific exercises. This time, American troops are not gathering for international exercises, but for long-term deployment

- said the Minister of Defense of the Republic Raimundas Karoblis on this occasion.

The Lithuanian military department specified that about 500 American troops, 30 Abrams tanks, 25 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles and 70 wheeled vehicles arrive in the battalion. The completion of the deployment of the American contingent in Lithuania is scheduled for next spring.

We are consistently and patiently striving to expand the long-term US military participation in Lithuania and throughout the region. Therefore, the long-term presence of the US Army battalion is good news and the result of our long-term efforts and investments. US forces are a very important deterrent and will contribute to NATO efforts in the Baltic region

- declared Karoblis.

      What are you speaking about? What are the contracts, who are observing them now? Russia ? A couple of three years will pass and the Moscow princes will repeat the ancient history - they will let hordes of Mongoloids through Europe through the country .. And the great Chinese yoke will come .. For alone, our country will not be able to confront Europe and the USA in a serious conflict. And fairy tales about all kinds of nuclear tactical attacks are for children and the Greenpeace ... Therefore, China will swallow Russia, with which no one will just butt .. History knows many examples of pacifying rebellious colonies .. And since Russia at the moment is a wayward colony ..- war is inevitable and inevitable. It would be worth preparing for it.

      For what ? To the tank battalion? All these NATO units, which are in the Baltic states, and in Poland do not pose a serious threat, but from the point of view of the alliance are a deterrent, since they emphasize that any aggression against these countries will be aggression against all countries of the bloc. The offensive capabilities of individual companies, and even battalions, are insignificant in comparison with the capabilities of the Republic of Armenia, and indeed even by the blind.

    And somehow at dawn - when the Lithuanian women (Lithuanian Yankees) having a tight breakfast will be lazily sunbathing ... unexpectedly hold demonstrations of the Buratin and Solntsepekov crews.

      When Ukrainian Nazis killed Russians in the Donbass, Belarusians drove them
      diesel fuel, trucks and miscellaneous military equipment

    Recently, according to analysts, “freedom fighters” have become active in our country on the Internet and on the streets. Any news related to the Americans and NATO pulls out provocateurs or bots in the comments, who begin to write comments in the style of "NATO - liberators", "Raska - aggressor", etc. Which, in turn, provokes aggressive and provocative discussions. Pickets from one to three people began to appear in the streets with flags "lard-meat-lard" or "laying". Which also leads to fermentation in society. It has been noticed that the wave of aggressive comments is started, as a rule, by the same individuals, in whose accounts there is no personal information. Basically, the first and last name is written in Belarusian. In the last month, the situation in society, in connection with the deterioration of the financial situation of people, began to heat up. Apparently, the Western curators of the so-called "opposition" decided to take advantage of this. Our administration has instructed to strengthen control over radical communities and citizens with "certain" political views. Something is brewing.

      If you are with us, you must teach these comrades, take them to the Brest Fortress and treat them so that you later forget how to keep the poster. A couple of riders and recovered.

        I did not understand then your post about "And in vain".
        And this post about "even Ukrainians" is not clear to me at all.
        Ukrainians are people who lived on the edge of Russia.
        They had to fight in full.
        What position do you express?

    Russia itself provokes NATO to such steps. Kaliningrad Oblast is a militaristic region with a high degree of military presence and armaments in the region. If politicians themselves do not agree on peaceful coexistence, then the military will do it for them. It’s time for Russia to stop turning Kaliningrad into a recreation zone for the Ministry of Defense, so as not to give NATO a reason to do the same in the Baltic states. Alikhanov needs to think about demilitarization, and not about the investment economy in the region. Investments are people themselves, first of all, and not military means and financial management. Moreover, people are indigenous natives, not parcels from Uzbekistan through the FMS.
