NATO Secretary General reports what signal the Alliance sends to the Baltic states

NATO is the only guarantee of security in Europe, said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. This is reported by the organization’s website.


At a meeting with Latvian President Egils Levits, he noted that the alliance sends a clear signal to the Baltic countries that they will not be left alone in the face of building up Russian military power. In addition, the Russian Federation was mentioned in conjunction with a certain “model of destabilizing behavior”.

Stoltenberg also praised the republic for spending 2% of its national GDP on defense, recalled missions in Afghanistan and Iraq, where troops from the Baltic countries are involved, and also hinted that NATO agreed on new requirements for the protection of critical infrastructure including 5G networks.

The head of the alliance mentioned hybrid and cyber threats, as well as new ambitions of the military bloc in outer space.

At the same time, the mention of China in the context of “new challenges” was a great surprise. The territory of the PRC is certainly beyond the geographical boundaries that are outlined as the original zone of operation of the North Atlantic Treaty. Obviously, in order to justify activity in the Asian region, NATO will have to apply some new concept. A "new challenge" from China - as an option.

          Here is the situation in the Baltic states. A few years ago, Latvia lent Estonia its own tank. The balance of power has changed dramatically. And if Estonia has now returned the Latvian tank, then the position of Riga is stronger than ever. Video on this topic:

    It remains to wait for the commissioning of all the capacities of the seaport of Ust-Luga and after that return to discussing the participation of the Baltic republics in NATO. I think that they will offer 2% of their national GDP to NATO sprats.
    Finished playing the Nazis, a little before the finals left.

    This figure himself can be said to be almost European, but looks in his mouth to "Uncle Sam's nephews" that he is ready to leave the American presence in Europe by any means. And at the same time send Baltic children and Scandinavian children to protect the interests of "nieces" in the most terrible regions of the world. I always say "wake up Europe."

    Now the Baltic states also need to prepare for war with China, here 2% is clearly not enough, it is necessary to increase.

    Stoltenberg, the “lighthouse”, is a provocateur who lures the Baltic states with “false reefs” with false signals. Apparently, in addition to signals, NATO has no other ways to support the "spirit" of the inhabitants of European editorial offices.

    It may be necessary to someday look at life in some Sichuan-Latvian Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China, where all residents are required to learn the Chinese language of the Sichuan dialect, and whoever does not learn will be a “non-citizen” with all the possible links to Tibet for reforging.

    The most persistent remained in Riga, but they are already seriously considering the possibilities of labor relocation.

    It is necessary to catch up with the purchase of scrap metal to 3% of GDP and the problem will disappear by itself - there will be no one to pay taxes.

    Interesting opinion is not the expert community. How would these "guarantors and hedgehogs with them" twitched, or rather (about ..) were crippled if Russia adopted the doctrine, akin to the Israeli one, that is, the right to self-defense with preemptive strikes against a potential aggressor. After all, they correctly believe that Art. 51 of the UN Charter, guarantees an inalienable "right" to self-defense, while there is no assertion that this should be preceded by an armed attack. Indeed, adhering to this logic, Israel, without looking back at all, inflicts preventive strikes both on the terrorist camps and on the centers for developing nuclear technologies, new weapons, etc. in neighboring countries.

    1. Would you raise some Western “guarantors” and others, with the same fanfare as now, the questions of building up your offensive capabilities, the issues of deploying new bases near our borders, your visions of Kaliningrad and so on?
    2. Would you dare to declare in Ukraine about campaigns against Moscow, about the development of intermediate and longer-range missiles for strikes against Russia, about the need to return atomic weapons?
    3. Are Americans so brave that they are not afraid of pushing Europe or individual countries to war with Russia, without fear of getting an answer on their territory?

      Why should they be afraid? Under the theme of the "Russian threat", and now also the "Chinese" defense industry, the United States is developing a grand military budget. Our leadership is actively playing along with him in this, since all internal problems can be attributed to “damned America,” which has been rotting for centuries, but not going to rot. As a result, in a global sense, everyone is happy - the top is with the money, the bottom is a clear enemy. which you need to hate fiercely and on which you can blame all your troubles and misfortunes. We disagree, there will be no kina.

    NATO is the only guarantee of security in Europe, said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. This is reported by the organization’s website.

    NATO is the only cesspool in the world that spreads stench and stink all over the world, and one can only dream of the kind of security that Yugoslavia has acquired. And what NATO forces have forgotten in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and now also China (potentially North Korea and Iran) - one can only guess.
    At a meeting with Latvian President Egils Levits, he noted that the alliance sends a clear signal to the Baltic countries that that they will not be left alone in the face of building up Russian military power.

    Who would doubt that. NATO will cover like two fingers on asphalt, if the so-called “bolt” laid on sovereignty can be called a cover ... The most important thing is to hope and allocate (for now) 2% of the budget ...

    This is a fee for imaginary security squealing at Russia from the Baltic corner. Not only 2% will be given for such pleasure, but also the 4% collection promised by Trump. The most interesting thing is that each time the Secretary General of NATO is chosen dumber and "more militant" than the previous one. And that says a lot.

    In Latvia and Lithuania there are torture. Dumb European judges even fined Lithuania for a prisoner accidentally surviving for 124 thousand euros.
    So NATO has something to defend in the Baltic States - places of entertainment for American executioners.
