In the United States proposed to strengthen the military potential of the Baltic republics

The United States needs to strengthen the military capabilities of the Baltic republics in order to prevent "Russian aggression." With a proposal to the American parliament, researchers from the US Congress addressed the research service, writes RT.


The United States needs to strengthen the potential of the armed forces of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, as the Baltic republics continue to see the United States as a leader in foreign policy and security. In addition, these countries will help the United States counter the “Russian threat” in Eastern Europe.

Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are reliable and valuable allies contributing to the maintenance of security and stability in Europe; ties with Washington are for these states a guarantee of protection against the "Russian threat and pressure"

- the report says.

Analysts are proposing to increase sales of US weapons to the Baltic republics and provide other assistance in the field of "national security."

At the same time, in the Baltic States themselves they also advocate the expansion of military cooperation with the United States. All three republics are in favor of the long-term deployment of the US military in their territories.

We are steadily and patiently striving to expand the long-term US military presence in Lithuania and the entire region ... The presence of the US military is a major deterrent and will contribute to NATO's efforts in the Baltic region

- said the Minister of Defense of Lithuania Raimundas Karoblis.

In turn, military experts say that under the US desire to "provide" military assistance to the Baltic states, it hides the desire to make more money on sales of new military equipment. The republics, hiding behind the mythical "Russian threat", intend to get as much funding from the USA as possible.

After the collapse of the USSR, these three republics remained on the periphery, and now their only economic dividends are handouts from the West for anti-Russian rhetoric. The Baltic states are trying to do business, make money, and the Americans support them in this matter

- said an expert at the Center for Security Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences Konstantin Blokhin, adding that in reality the United States will never enter into a military conflict with Russia over the Baltic states, for fear of a nuclear attack.

    I’m wondering when the subsidies to the Baltic states from the EU end there?
    Then, on a bare ass, even if they strengthen "security".
    Under Russophobian lamentations for the sake of approving the overseas host, they profooed sooo much.

      Sponsorship from the EU ends from the beginning of next year, our local Latvian Aryans have spent all their money, the country is sinking deeper and deeper into the ass. The state does not know how to earn money; every year they increase all taxes. Soon, the citizens will all perish, some into Gemania, some England, and we Russians will NOT REMEMBER and again raise the Russian flag, because the Yankees will not be able to explain to me how terrible the Russian threat is for me. Such a plan !!! Bye Yankees go nome !!!

    Sooner or later, the Americans will leave the Baltic states and then these three republics themselves will crawl to us.

      why do we need them? Let them live on their own. When the Americans leave, these republics will quarrel among themselves. And Poland has long dreamed of tidying their territories

    The Baltic states should understand that it can become one of the first major victims in the contradictions in relations between the US and Russia, if it comes to hot relations. hi

      But no one will fight for them. In general, the Russian Federation is easier to strictly ignore these territories and strangle them economically: gas, transit, electricity, trade ... all to zero or at an exorbitant price and they will have a reason to find out who they are 'ally'. And the stripes will feed them fables no worse than Krylov, but they really will not do anything.

    these countries will help the United States counter the “Russian threat” in Eastern Europe.
    These "help", who if not the Baltic states, since the Americans probably do not count on other "allies"? But will the Americans help the Baltic states - is this a big question?

    Damn, do the tribals really do not understand that in the case of a large heap on their entire territory, it will be possible to extract minerals in an open way. By the way, the Poles have already begun to realize this and the arrogance has diminished. Tribalts are in a hurry to go into historical non-existence.

      They are by and large already halfway through, and yapping on command is the only way to remind yourself. And admit to ourselves that they were made warning system and an 'green forehead anointed' oh how it doesn’t

    Expected. Striped vultures reared completely. In general, they don’t want to think about the consequences.

    They will give the Tribalts decommissioned military equipment at the cost of a collider, and then take the land for debts. Here’s another place for their bases ... Well, there’s enough for the servants there to serve their soldiers

    These are 100% protected, since no one is going to attack them. This is like the elusive Joe, who is therefore elusive because no one catches him.

    The persistent Balts are numb to die for the interests of the West. Why don't you live calmly and peacefully, neighbors? After all, no one needs you in Russia, not even Putin.

    Tired of this circus. A puppet crook in the form of a government of the Baltic countries, in a place with the Americans, "sawing" the money allocated by the European Union as subsidies to the Baltic countries. And everyone screams for protection from the aggressor, although everyone understands that Russia does not need them for nothing. In general, the cries will cease, as the subsidies will stop. Of course, the Americans will push the Balts to the end, they will be a little after the cessation of subsidies, and then they will “set fire” to the region upon leaving, to destabilize Europe. Fortunately, the "dried up economy" of the Baltic countries, after such cooperation with the United States, will be good firewood. And then Poland’s turn will come, under the smokescreen of the Baltic Maidan she’ll probably try to squeeze herself, all that is bad. And she will consider that she ended up in the “ladies”, because she is under American protection with American bases on her territory, but the Americans will extradite Poland, and then will be pushed to exit the European Union, singing in her ears that the Poles are great and powerful, just like their elders brothers, and after they set fire to them, and in the end they will try to throw all this flame to Russia through Ukraine and Belarus. In the meantime, there is free money, all together they "saw" it under the flag of freedom and democracy.

    In my opinion, "strengthening military assistance" will not help the Baltic states and other farmers. Firstly, the population is slowly but surely flowing into the same West. Secondly, the limit of their dreams is the decommissioned T-54 tank, the decommissioned Swedish coast guard boat and the decommissioned MAN military trucks they have long had, Puma armored personnel carriers and J-36 Hackler und Koch and M-14 type rifles they also have. Larger tank equipment, airplanes and large-caliber artillery require already developed technical infrastructure and maintenance, and they have "dumb little" to the people, too, from the word completely. In general, they will bring blacks, sorry, an armored cavalry division from the United States, if they reinforce anything there.

    What shisha will they acquire Amer’s weapons? They cannot earn money, but the EU mounds will not give money for this weapon.
