NATO announced the largest deployment of the US Army in Europe




Scheduled for the spring of 2020, military exercises will be conducted under the command of the US military and will be aimed at developing the ability of the American army to quickly transfer from the US to Europe and deploy large forces on its territory, including equipment. As stated in the NATO command, during the US exercises they will transfer to Europe a record number of personnel and equipment over the past 25 years. The exercises will be held on the territory of European countries and Georgia, the main part will be held in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The main deployment is in Poland and the Baltic states.

According to reports, 37 thousand troops will participate in the exercises, of which 29 thousand will represent the US Army, which will be the largest deployment of the US military in Europe, which will begin in February 2020. About 20 of thousands of troops along with equipment are supposed to be thrown across the Atlantic to Europe. Most of the exercises will be held in April-May, after which part of the US military contingent will return to the United States by July, and some will remain in Europe, as a factor in deterring "Russian" aggression.

Commenting on the large-scale exercises near the Russian borders, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia is calm about such exercises, but does not welcome them.

We recently conducted (exercises) - though not near the borders of NATO, we specifically conduct this in the depths of the Russian Federation. Therefore, we do not welcome attempts to escalate at our borders, we believe that this is harmful, but we will respond calmly

- Putin said.

In turn, the Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko called the upcoming US and NATO exercises "incomprehensible" and said that together with Vladimir Putin "they will think about how to secure their countries during the large-scale NATO exercises at the Belarusian borders."

    I bet that after the exercises the Americans will not leave home, but will remain together with the equipment in Poland and the Baltic states. The accumulation of forces at the borders of Russia continues with enviable tenacity.

      The accumulation of forces at the borders of Russia

      "We will hit the headquarters" (Vladimir Putin). Only Russia has no other options in the event of a major war. China also does not (look at the last parade with Dong Feng).
      But the "partners" to deploy their troops in case of internal upheavals (navalnyata, Hong Kong Maidan), this is already a serious threat for us. Here the authorities need to somehow turn to the people. I would start with Skvortsova and the compulsory medical insurance: doctors write more pieces of paper than treat. And my health, for me, as well as for everyone, is very important, especially when it has become quite expensive. Young people without decent work hang out in offices, even those with higher education - so that they would not go to a rally out of boredom? And there is nothing to lose. In short, in a civil conflict, strategic nuclear forces will not help. And with the situation when directors without specialized education sit in state-owned enterprises and have no other interests besides manitizing their positions, it is necessary to wait for the replenishment of the fifth column, even from those strata of society that the authorities rely on as their own support.

        The main villain of Russia is Navalny. It's right. He has 1 followers on YuoTube alone. And what’s characteristic is that no one forces, no one persuades ... Only Medvedev, Putin, Matvienko have more ... laughing There are fewer members throughout ...
        And you forgot to write that it was Navalny who appointed Skvortsov, gave powers to Medvedev, and set to rule Topilin, Golikov and other ideologists and businessmen of market liberalism.

        Weaklings. They put some 37 thousand bayonets on the exercises, against our 130 thousand. That's where the scale is! In addition, these 37 thousand they will also smear a thin layer from Europe to Georgia. In South Korea alone or in Okinawa, Japan, at American bases, almost the same number of mattress non-rangers are cooled. After their exercises, the local population will spit on these "defenders" for five years and restore bridges and roads.

            Yes, that's understandable. But openly against us only the United States and several of its watchdogs from among the "Young Europeans". Old Europe does not burn with a desire to fight with Russia at all, and in the event of a real battle, it will throw out a white flag as soon as possible. To the great disappointment of the Americans, this time they will not be able to sit out overseas and confine themselves to the war exclusively in the European theater of operations, since the response will reach them on their own territory, as in the saying - "The instigator is the first whip."
