The Americans increased military activity in the Chukchi direction

48

The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation report an increase in American activity in the Chukotka region. The corresponding statement was made by the chief of staff of the OKVSSV (Joint Command of the Armed Forces in the northeast) Mikhail Bilichenko.


Mikhail Bilichenko presented his statement on the air of the Zvezda shopping center for the Military Acceptance program.

According to him, the Pentagon has increased the activity of naval units in the Chukchi Peninsula. At the same time, the composition of the US groupings has undergone a substantial increase.

Mikhail Bilichenko added that the Americans see the Chukchi area as operational.

At the same time, the chief of the OKVSSV headquarters noted that American active military activity in this direction was also traced earlier, only this was, as they say, everyday training. To date, this activity has clearly increased. It is noted that the Americans on their territory are practicing a landing in arctic conditions.

Recall that geographically, Chukotka and Alaska are separated by the Bering Strait, the width of which (the smallest) is only 86 km. At one time, initiatives were expressed in Moscow and Washington to join the Asian and North American contingents - a tunnel under the Bering Strait. However, political and military-political confrontation nullify this initiative.

      It is unfortunate that the American MTRs were operating with impunity in this region of Russia back in Soviet times, albeit without casualties on our part, but without prisoners on their part. I’ll look for the link now.

        He also opened America to me. Having such open spaces without the far north, it is difficult to notice everything. In the northern part of Canada, for 1000 km from large and even medium-sized settlements, you can also drop someone, and what's next? Capture local villages and kill local sheriffs in remote Alaska for example?

          In the evening, on Saturday, there were reports of fires in the barracks of our radio-direction-finding stations on Fr. Iturup and in b. Providence with an interval of 10 hours. This significantly hampered the work of our direction finding network. I do not exclude that this was the actual working off of the American special units “SEAL” (“sea lions”) on our territory.

      The Nazis were defeated due to the harsh winter near Moscow. And in Chukotka it is much colder than near Moscow! lol A classmate there served. He told me that they went from block to block on a rope. If you were torn off a rope in a blizzard, then there is almost no chance of survival.

        At the moment, outside the window -41, at night, on the shift I took the data was -43. It seems to me that the majority simply do not understand what Chukotka is)). Even Alaska (was in Nome and Anchorage), compared to Chukotka, is a "paradise", with paved roads and thousands of small airplanes. In winter, during a blizzard, I got out of the car, walked five steps, turned around, there were no traces of a road or a car, I got into a panic, I didn't find a car, I froze in 10-20 minutes ............

      When an army arrives in a village, it begins to develop. I think that if our military would actively develop their infrastructure in Chukotka, then everyone else would catch up with them. After all, after Soviet times there were so many towns and military facilities abandoned and destroyed.

        Everything is much more complicated, more reliable, more diverse should be. The development of military infrastructure and the development of the civil sector can contribute, but to a very limited extent.

      Yes, that's for sure. But maintaining borders is always a costly task, especially remote ones. I only recently learned that our 25th air defense division, which was covering the peninsula, and which Gorbachev disbanded, was called "Doomsday Guards". The main task of which was to warn about the beginning of a massive strike from the direction of Alaska through the territory of the USSR and shoot down with forces and means 3 air defense missiles at least part of the missiles and aircraft.

        Those. a significant number of infantry troops are not needed there. Only security units.

    Good morning Dear forum users !!!!!!
    Happy New Year!!!!! Happiness, success and prosperity to you and your loved ones !!!!!

    Well, for this news. Next spring there will be exercises of the enemies, large-scale, as they themselves announced. And these movements are also not for nothing. If you analyze their plans for these exercises, you get the feeling that at the end of them there should be a local war. For those members of the forum who will say that they will not dare, I will say, they will dare and not frown, there are many examples. Fighting is likely to be in Europe and a bit of the United States. Well, how are the bulk of these illegal immigrants, yes, you can argue, but tell me, what are they to do in Europe now? And why do European politicians need this mass from Africa? They used to live and there was no need for migrants, but then they suddenly brought it. The presence of nuclear weapons, but in WWII both sides had toxic substances, so what? Have they been used? So here, no one will throw nuclear bombs. It is not beneficial to anyone. But as a result of this "local" war, we will see a different world. And the purpose of the conflict is to resolve the accumulated disputes in all areas.

    You should always be on guard, in this the chief of staff of OKVSSV is right. But if objectively, the mattress mates do not have any ships for landing in the Arctic waters, and even in the ice, rather we will save these poor wretches with our icebreakers. I believe that they will not even conduct full-fledged exercises, otherwise it will end in the same disgrace as last year off the coast of Norway and Iceland:
    In the fall of 2018, a Norwegian Navy frigate Helge Ingstad clashed with a tanker carrying fuel for military helicopters, now there is a struggle to save the warship, which received heavy damage and received a large amount of sea water. The picture for the Norwegian Navy is extremely unpleasant: the nature of the damage to the frigate (large torn holes below the waterline) suggests that the crews of the ships could not cope with the standard maneuver of the divergence of ships and allowed catastrophic consequences when acting in a normal situation. Which by the way is quite typical for the ships of the NATO Navy, which regularly lose their spatial orientation and find themselves on the way of tankers and container ships. Further events developed even more surprisingly, rescuers immediately evacuated the entire crew from the frigate, 137 people, i.e. they shot precisely those people who know this combat unit best of all, are trained to fight for its survivability and are simply obligated to take part in it on duty. This frankly panicky decision, taken by the command clearly out of fear of responsibility for the possible loss of life, further complicated the position of the sinking ship. In addition, they began to push him with tugs, hoping to move closer to the shore - as a result, the frigate almost rolled over. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of liters of jet fuel spilled into the sea from the tanker, which for Europeans extremely sensitive to environmental problems is even worse than the ship accident itself. I will add that both ships performed tasks within the framework of the NATO exercise “One Trident-2018”, so these exercises are completed on exactly the same catastrophic note with which they began. As you know, the overture of the unsettled Trident was an Atlantic storm that swept the amphibious compound of the US Navy across the sea, as a result of which only one of the three ocean-going landing ships could reach the landing site in Norway. The remaining two, having received damage incompatible with further operations, took refuge in the port of Reykjavik. Thus, the main thing for which the exercises were started - the large-scale US amphibious assault in Europe designed to frighten Russia, was failed miserably. The “single trident” is precisely naval, amphibious exercises, and if in their main field they failed, then everything else simply does not count. Moreover, this “everything else” is a disaster for the newest Norwegian frigate worth about $ 1 billion. The ship, if it doesn’t sink, will have to be written off, because its restoration on the other side of Europe (in Italy, where it was built) will be incompatibly expensive. It is not surprising that against such a catastrophic background, bravura propaganda, from which literally laid ears at the beginning of the exercises, about how NATO will show Russia’s “kuzkin’s mother," has completely disappeared today. The failure of the intimidation action is so obvious that its organizers chose to simply shut up so as not to incur even greater shame. I think that in NATO, based on the results of these disastrous “exercises,” a capital “debriefing” will be arranged, for sure big stars with stripes will strip off someone.
    Well, the North cannot afford them. What can you dolaughing, The World Arctic is our patrimony!

      During the civil years, they felt quite comfortable there. And the base there is not for beauty.
      As for the ships, they have already registered All civil ships, having found out and counting the number of gondons that these ships can transport. Oleg correctly said, for the first wave, all the slag from Africa, and others will go.
      While they will be drowned and ground, personnel officers will identify and methodically, with English pedantry, suppress everything that they reach. Judging by the number of illegal immigrants, they will be enough for the second wave.
      They have good odds on the cards.
      And the history of the Russian empire clearly teaches that anyone who wants to start a war will start it and, as a rule, will achieve their goals ..
      + Our leaders every year the winter unexpectedly comes, and there I also think they are betting on it.
      If you clearly calculated that during the general staff’s move, you could start a Georgian-Ossetian mess, then the approach is much more serious ..

        Well, why is your opus about "waves of illegal immigrants" and other fantasies?) I repeat, Russia has 80% of the world's icebreakers and 100% of the planet's nuclear icebreakers, 5 new nuclear ones are being completed, and the ENTIRE West with all its $ trillions and a billion people (with illegal immigrants) are not even able to build a decent large diesel, although they are pushing with all their might. What the hell are "English pedantry" if they have even several times more climatically favorable Alaska inhabited only on 1% of the territory and have not created a single real Arctic base, while we have the entire Arctic Circle in military bases, even air defense and aerospace forces, and now also icebreakers with cruise missiles in service. What to say, Russia squeezed the Lomonosov Ridge and the Mendeleev Rise (48% of the World Arctic, there are tens of trillions of dollars worth of oil, gold, rare earth metals and gas), and the rest of the world just swallowed and wiped itself off.

    At the end of the 90s, Chukchi hypericum drunkards arranged an armed invasion of the United States ... Alaska. When they sobered up, and somehow figured out that they were in someone else's territory, realizing that the allocated loan had to be repaid, but it was already gone, they decided to surrender to the authorities and asked for political asylum ... Dukes were returned to their homeland, and their arms and whaleboat were arrested, and authorities understood for a long time ... The real story. Likely in the USA ripe for a retaliatory invasion ...)))
    I wonder how much this operational direction is important for both Americans and us. The navigation period is very short, that is, you cannot deliver a large group in the shortest possible time, and the preparation will be visible. By air, I understand that during the war they don’t count money .. but then also by air to keep an abandoned group there?

        I know about this, I myself come from those places .. only according to the stories of the Chukchi themselves, that in the 90s among those who found relatives on the other side there were people with Slavic and Caucasian types of faces ...)))
        And so quite officially, local residents, accompanied by border guards, go in boats and meet with the American coast guard, where they go under their escort. All this for the purpose of crossing safety in possible dramatically changing weather conditions ..
        Regarding holes in the border, in 2018, two Russian tourists, a man and a woman, violated the border and crossed into Alaska. They persuaded the outposts to let them go for a walk in kayaks along our coast, allegedly got lost in the fog and completely "accidentally" ended up on a foreign shore ... At the same time, they had an open visa, so the Americans did not touch them, having traveled around the United States, they returned by plane to Moscow ... Received a fine only for illegal border crossing. They set up the border guards badly, and the subsequent tourists got problems. Here is such an ugly story.

    The Chukchi declared war on the Chinese, they searched for a long time on the map their location, found some unknown point and decided to go there. They come and see: there are three yurts. They drop by and ask:
    - Are you Chukchi?
    - Yes, we are Chukchi.
    “Did you declare war on us?” So we are a billion!
    - Yes, in vain we announced. Where will we bury you?

    Only the lazy did not mock poor Zhenechka Psaki for the "Belarusian Sea". But if the President of the Russian Geographical Society S.K.Shoigu asks his subordinate M. Bilichenko to show on the map where Chukotka is located, and where is Alaska, will he be able to?

    Mikhail Bilichenko added that the Americans see the Chukchi area as operational.
    Do not understand. Why aren't we at VO discussing our operational direction to Alaska? The General Staff does not catch mice, and then come on, come on, through the Bering dogs. feel

    It is unfortunate that the American MTRs were operating with impunity in this region of Russia back in Soviet times, albeit without casualties on our part, but without prisoners on their part. I’ll look for the link now.

    He also opened America to me. Having such open spaces without the far north, it is difficult to notice everything. In the northern part of Canada, for 1000 km from large and even medium-sized settlements, you can also drop someone, and what's next? Capture local villages and kill local sheriffs in remote Alaska for example?

    I don’t know what about the landing in Chukotka, but in the event of a war they really will most likely come from the Arctic and the Far East. The primary goal will be oil and gas infrastructure, or capture, or destruction ...

      If about Chukotka, there are no roads there at all, only winter roads. To disrupt the supply, they themselves will turn back due to the cold.
