Teachings at foreign borders, or if you want peace ...

An ancient Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, a few decades before the New Era, formulated a simple and understandable principle: if you want peace, prepare for war. Two thousand years have passed since the time of Nepos, and the phrase has not yet lost its relevance. On the contrary, in the second half of the 20th century, she acquired a “second life”. Then the cold war ended and a relatively peaceful period began. stories. Nevertheless, states continue to prepare for a possible war and train their troops. Commendable initiative. Unless, of course, it goes against someone’s interests.




Among other things, NATO countries are preparing for a hypothetical war. The zone of interests of the Alliance includes vast territories on a considerable part of the planet. Because of this, the North Atlantic interests and intentions may overlap with others. With regard to Russia, this is manifested in regular military activities near its borders. First of all, it is worth remembering the international campaign to control the airspace of the Baltic States. A few years ago, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and NATO agreed that fighters of the Alliance countries would be based on the territory of the first three. The purpose of such cooperation was to ensure the security of the region. Joint patrols were to be carried out for several years, and then they were about to collapse. However, in February of this year, the NATO Council agreed with the leadership of the Baltic countries to extend the mission. And this time we are talking about the indefinite finding of aircraft. It seems to be a good initiative - duty in the airspace, security, etc. But a fair and logical question arises: from whom are NATO and the Balts going to protect Europe while on the border with Russia? Obviously not from North Korea, Iran or other "unreliable regimes."

Along the way, with combat duty in the Baltic States, NATO countries from time to time conduct various exercises in the region. The spring and summer of the current year were particularly “fruitful” for the exercises. In the first days of May, Baltic Fortress 2012 naval exercises took place. In the course of these maneuvers, warships of the Alliance and the Baltic countries worked out their interaction in a difficult situation. Among other things, several shootings were carried out, and a wide corridor was made in the training minefield. A little later, from 14 to 25 in May, the Baltic Sea became the arena for the Open Spirit 2012 teachings. The purpose of this event was again called training in the interaction of ships in international operations and the like. The last currently sea maneuvers in the Baltic region were held at the very beginning of June-month. In the course of the Baltops exercise from 1 to 16 in June, the Balts and NATO jointly landed airborne and amphibious assault forces on the coast and also jointly opposed them. It is worth noting that in addition to the ships of NATO and the Baltic countries, the Russian BDK Kaliningrad also participated in the Baltops-2012. The amphibious assault ships were protected by the Ticonderoga USS Normandy cruiser. Perhaps it is not necessary to once again talk about the stated objectives of the exercises.

One day earlier, Baltic Fortress 2012 began the Kevadtorm 2012 exercises. In the course of the last, about four thousand soldiers and officers from NATO and the Baltic countries learned how to carry out ground operations in the Baltic states on Estonian territory. A little later, there were maneuvers called Saber Strike. More than two thousand servicemen from eight countries took part in them. The stated goal of “Sword Strike” is to work out the interaction of armies of different countries during the ground operation “to establish peace”. Finally, in the last days of May, the Baltic Region Training Event XII was held in the territory of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Under the leadership of the NATO Joint Air Command, the Alliance and Baltic countries air forces conducted a training offensive operation. One of the main attack forces during the event was the A-10 attack aircraft.

As we see, in less than two months in the Baltic region six military events took place. Based only on their number, one can draw conclusions about some unkind NATO plans regarding the Baltic coast and surrounding areas. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that all these maneuvers, starting with Baltic Fortress 2012 and ending with Baltops, are elements of one major training session. If you look closely at the goals of each individual event, you will notice an interesting pattern: during any of these or other parts of a typical operation by NATO forces, from air strikes to landing on the coast and the subsequent land offensive. It turns out that NATO members and Balts just held some big exercises, for convenience, dividing them into several smaller ones. This fact, it should be noted, "justifies" only a relatively large number of operations. With regard to their true goals, then the presence of plans for major maneuvers will not get off.

First of all, the version about the development of a new locality comes to mind. For several decades, the Baltic Sea and the coasts of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia were closed to the military of the North Atlantic Alliance. Obviously, having gained access to this region, they did not miss the opportunity to settle there and hold exercises. In the end, soldiers, officers and generals should be able to act not only in the area where their part is located. Here are just a regular exercise in the Baltics leads to bad thoughts. It creates a steady impression that for the NATO command this region is more than just a convenient training ground for working out joint actions of the units. With a high degree of probability, it can even be argued that somewhere in the vaults of the Alliance command there are documents with terrain features and recommendations on how exactly to attack in the Baltic States. Such documents could be published during the Cold War. Now there is a great opportunity to test the old assumptions and make corrections to the plans of the attacks.

However, all this is only speculation. The official statements of the NATO command are monotonous and dry: working out methods of offensive, interaction of troops, and so on and so forth. Against the background of such statements, the position of Russia looks interesting: in fact, the exercises are held dangerously close to its borders. However, the military and political leadership of the country reacts to them, to put it mildly, with restraint, and even pretends not to notice. How can you not remember the reaction of Britain or Japan to the flight of Russian bombers near their borders? If we take into account the peculiarities of diplomatic "etiquette", then the statements of London and Tokyo regarding the missile carriers can be called uniform hysteria. Moscow, in turn, prefers not to spoil its image and not to make scandals "out of the blue." It seems that at the top some information is available that allows you not to worry about the activity of NATO in the Baltic States. At the same time, the absence of angry statements from the Russian Foreign Ministry can sometimes look not quite normal. A number of political scientists, military experts and ordinary citizens believe that every exercise near our borders should be “commented” with the help of diplomatic notes. Yes, in fact, such documents do not oblige anyone to anything, but their position must be designated and defended. There is a reasonable grain in this opinion. Only under certain circumstances, a protest against the exercises could look exactly the same as, for example, Japan’s February outrage over the passage of Russian bombers. It is unlikely that it will benefit the image of the country. So a look at the teachings, as they say, through fingers is not the worst option.

And the extra hysteria of the Baltic region is not needed. From time to time, there are heard from there statements about the evil neighbor in the person of Russia, which hopes to become the main in the Baltic States and for this, in particular, it is building up a military group in the Kaliningrad region. The most recent statements on this subject sounded 18 June in Vilnius. At the Eastern Partners: Modern Challenges and Future Prospects conference, which was held within the framework of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, Lithuanian Defense Minister R. Juknevičienė once again accused Russia of trying to militarize the region. In the light of the teachings of May-June, these words look very interesting. Earlier, such statements were made by representatives of the governments of Latvia and Estonia. From time to time they echo the NATO countries. However, due to the so-called "reset", from the same United States, such statements are quite rare. At least, less often than from the Baltic states.

The principle “if you want peace - prepare for war” is actively used not only by the North Atlantic Alliance. Russia also conducts exercises. However, not wanting to provoke another round of “revelations” and protests, the Russian military is training at a good distance from the borders. For example, the bulk of events during last year’s Shield of the Union exercises (joint events of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan) took place at the training grounds of the Volga region. As for naval maneuvers, the last of them at the moment were in the Pacific navy and passed at the end of the month of June. One cannot fail to note the words of some Japanese figures accusing Russia of bad intentions, but official Tokyo this time chose to remain silent.

An interesting situation is emerging: the largest countries of the world regularly conduct military exercises, including jointly with other states. Sometimes the choice of the territory of these exercises has specific consequences in the form of the “original” reaction of the countries, near the borders of which all events are held. The main thing in such a situation is to maintain political and military control, and also not to allow possible provocations from any side. In the world now and so there are enough unstable regions and definitely it is not necessary to multiply their number.

    Why are our media somehow suspiciously loyal to everything with a minus sign that is happening in London and America. But there is his shit "over the edge."
    After all, the media is one of the types of information weapons of the state.
    And the "swing in the toilet" of the same Anglo-Saxons must be professionally and tastefully.
    Only they gave rise to immediately organize a wave of shit and foam, so much so that they would hiccup for months to come. There is a whole front of work and the state is simply obliged smart his message. For example, creating such a "newspaper special forces" and throwing tons of lies, misinformation, distortions, false rumors into the world media. And let them then launder taking into account their centuries-old traditions of the free press.

    No, hysteria like Naglia is not necessary. But it is necessary to respond with overflights, overflights of bombers, and exercises in the same region. And we all have a delicacy. You can see exactly what the reputation of their business is worried about.

    But the exercises really need to be carried out so that not only in their territory, but also in Belarus, Kazakhstan and other regions, together with interested countries. And by definition, the bogs will be yapping, everyone knows Krylov's fable "Elephant and Pug".

    in my opinion, the heads of our state are categorically against the restoration of Russia as a world superpower and are doing everything in order not to be in the position of the USSR, it is difficult to be the first and our people are not ready to become an example for the rest of the world. There is no idea of ​​world domination, everyone is satisfied with the label of "raw materials appendage", a weak, corrupt economy, a lot of nationality, and a historical factor that does not allow us to develop at the pace that everyone is used to. And most importantly, there is no single leader, authority with a capital letter. The Russian spirit is weakening from generation to generation ...
    The Russian non-nuclear war is needed by the Russians, first of all - after the wars, the people rallied, got rid of cowards, pests and traitors. The idea of ​​a better future for their children came up. War is definitely bad, but good, the sharp development of technology, quality, the law of the jungle, it seems only through war that mankind can grow ... Judge for yourself ... Read the story ... Victory will come for us))))

      Russians do not need war. 140 million live in Russia now, which is less than in 1941 (180 million). First of all, after the wars, the weak remain (the strong and the brave die first). Mongolia, which conquered half the world, barely totals 2 million. Russia needs to work hard and pay taxes honestly, give birth to three or more children in order for the country to become rich and prosperous. And then everyone will reach for her.

      do you need a war? go and fight. only if the war is non-nuclear then somehow the chances that Russia will win it will be 1 to 10 in favor of the fact that NATO will win it very quickly. and then you will lose everything. But this is primarily a defensive alliance and if they behave this way, then there is reason to defend themselves. Moreover, your comment is a clear confirmation of this.

        Nobody is going to fight. Igorek408 in the war probably only played on a computer, so he thinks that it will also be fun. The idea of ​​the article is just the opposite; you want the world to get ready for war. Here NATO wants peace and is preparing. The question is, with whom are they going to fight in the Baltic states? There are options? Maybe they have access to materials from the Iranian or North Korean general headquarters, which provides for a breakthrough to the Baltic? And one more question. Who attacked NATO during its entire existence? From whom did they manage to defend themselves? That's who NATO attacked is well known - Yugoslavia, Libya. So NATO is definitely a defense alliance? Are you sure?

          if they increased their general level, they knew that NATO did not attack Yugoslavia. only a few NATO members participated in the operation. Setting NATO means that in case of an attack on one country of the alliance, then all countries of the alliance are obliged to come out in defense of the country that was attacked. as for the rest, he himself decides how to behave and no one commits anything to him. I have repeatedly said that you don’t have to judge everyone by yourself. But I see the word tightly understood. You only understand the language of power. When you start to press you start to howl you are a victim. really decent behavior

Yes, and about your confidence 1 to 10, I can remind you, my friend Romanians, that Napoleon had the same confidence, kneeling all of Europe and your Romania, too, with the whole "Great European Army" moving to Mother Russia, or Hitler, who He also kneeled all of Europe and 1 to 10 confidently went to Russia. Or has the story of you, a Romanian, not yet taught anything? Remember, Romanians, the words of our Great Commander Alexander Nevsky: "Whoever comes to us with a sword, he will die by the sword." Great Russia stood and will stand on that! Remember the story, Romanian!

How can one not recall the reaction of Great Britain or Japan to the flight of Russian bombers near their borders? If we take into account the peculiarities of diplomatic "etiquette", then the statements of London and Tokyo regarding missile carriers can be called a uniform hysteria.

    The teachings are called the Union Shield. The Union is Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan. So it is logical to carry them out alternately in all 3 countries. Held in Russia. Now hold in Belarus and the Pskov region. Introductory for the exercises, reflection of the strike of enemy forces landed on the Baltic Sea coast. Write off the enemy’s actions from the plans of NATO exercises. Let them get nervous. To expand so much at the borders that it would be clear to hawks in the parliaments of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia that in the case of a turmoil, in the best scenario, they would run away to the coast and on which thread of the basin the force of hour 3 would rise. uniform suicide because Russian air defense will bring down everything that is the largest raven. Of course, they will not stop blathering, but at the same time they will begin to do everything possible so that in real life things don't get to that mess.

    Citizens are partners! I recommend reading the article "Humane 25th Year for the Russian Army" in the newspaper "Arguments of the Week" No. 37. The consequences of reforms in our army are very clearly and clearly shown. Medvedev assesses the reforms as successful, while most independent military experts speak of the complete defeat of the Armed Forces, and there are lots of such articles in the media, but no one reacts to them. Some say swamp rot. I am not their special supporter. But before you give a damn about someone, you must offer something of your own. And what do you suggest? Yes, nothing! .. Then why bother with language? Army against Taburetkin. But he is in favor with Putin. Experts say that a few more years of Serdyukov’s “elephant” staying in the MO’s “glass shop” - and any geopolitical influence of the country can be forgotten. How many copies were broken about NATO transit through Russia. But the issue has already been resolved. Some of our forum were outraged that all this was not true, etc. But according to the latest information, transit will begin on August 1. “In fact, transit has been going on for a long time. Up to 4500 one-way flights are allowed per year. In total, the Americans have already completed more than 14 thousand such flights and have transported more than 120 thousand in flight only.” ---- (From Mat. Media.) 25 On June June, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 637 "On Amending the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of March 28, 2008 No. 219" After that, conversations about the already resolved issue of deploying a "NATO base in Ulyanovsk" sharply intensified. The country, unfortunately, lives by concepts. The people are against, but the leadership is ZA. Analyze all the events in the country over the past year. You can be horrified. Wherever you look, devastation is everywhere. But there will be no housing - people will live in dugouts. And this is already happening. Even with children they live. But if the army is finally destroyed, nothing will help us. For it will take years to recreate. And who will give them to us? NATO may not go into direct military conflict, but there will be jackals who will try not to miss ... Anti-Army rhetoric does not disappear from the pages of newspapers. All against conscription, for turning the army into a professional (although who decided that the newly-minted contractor is a professional). In Chechnya, conscripts fought no worse, and in many cases better than such professionals. Have you heard that the US is considering resuming the draft? Although practically he did not disappear. But the official call .... A blow to our fighters for a professional army. Even below the waist. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!

    The Baltic countries are essentially a flat strip of land along the coast, protected only politically.
    The absence of any serious weapons in the armies makes them capable of only symbolic participation in NATO missions, protection of borders and internal order in peacetime and partisan actions and target designation in case of armed conflict.
    Meanwhile, it is necessary to somehow justify the cost of the army (thank God scanty) and somehow to indicate its significance. Hence the politicians of the military threat bark.

    From time to time, some talk about Ulyanovsk and the NATO base, about the transit of goods through Russia. So transit has existed almost since the war in Afghanistan. A so-called NATO base in Ulyanovsk does not exist. Since I live in Ulyanovsk and near the Vostochny airport, I promise to tell you everything that will happen after August 1. Most likely the tantsportniki will bring containers and transported by trucks along the Russian Railways. That's the whole NATO base

    In any case, no units of military equipment will be transported. Amers will leave all this rubbish to the Taliban, Tajiks and Uzbeks

    Of course, NATO is training in the Baltic states to check all the recommendations and plans of the Cold War era developed for the war against the USSR in the Baltic region. Our army is also training. The exercises “Shield of the Union” are good, only one question: why is our Baltic Fleet not involved in the exercises? Something is not being conducted by the Baltic Fleet in the event of NATO aggression, in extreme cases, very little.

    If a couple of Russian submarines surfaced nearby during these exercises, or if a link of attack aircraft passed on the shaver, would it be great? !

    You will probably be surprised - but there is a site in which data about all the inhabitants of the beating USSR.
    Everything that the authorities carefully concealed is now known to everyone on this site ydn. * Ru / sngpoisk (copy the link without *)
    You drive a name, a surname - and it shows you everything that can beat
    (your relatives, friends, phone numbers, well, a lot)
    And most importantly, it is accessible to everyone, I was really scared at first - you never know what moron there will climb
    Well, the truth is that you can remove yourself from the site, there you just need to find yourself, go through registration and delete

    Well, I don’t know where the author was saying that they will be patrolling the Baltic airspace for several years. Already in 2004, it was decided that each country would provide protection for six months ... But since there are no funds to create its own fighter aircraft, then the issue of a long period is considered.

    Who is being protected from? From violations from the history of Russia and Belarus. Until 2004, the airspace of the Baltic countries was violated very often. And even now, NATO fighters rise often enough ...

    And I do not understand the meaning of anxiety, this is only 4 fighters, in your opinion it is a threat!?


    I'm sorry for my Russian.
