NATO declared superiority of the Russian army in the Baltic and Poland

The Russian military contingent, located in the west of the country, including in the Kaliningrad region, significantly exceeds the military forces of NATO in the region of Poland and the Baltic countries. This was stated by Commander-in-Chief of the Joint Armed Forces of NATO in Europe Tod Walters.


Speaking at a hearing before the US Senate Committee on Armed Services, Walters said that the advantage of the Russian army over NATO in the Baltic region and Poland lies in the number of troops and their geographic location. The alliance believes that these particular countries are the "greatest risk" of a military conflict between Russia and NATO "due to historical claims and geographic location.

Although NATO forces in the region currently help deter any open attack by Russia, Russia's military contingent in the Western Military District and Kaliningrad has a geographical advantage and is also numerically superior to NATO forces deployed in the region

- he stressed.

In addition, Walters, also the head of the European Command of the US Armed Forces, urged Washington to focus significant efforts on the Baltic, Black Sea and Arctic. He explained his statement as "the increased activity of Russia and China."

We must focus on the Arctic in the same way that we are (focused) on the Baltic, on the Black Sea, on the Mediterranean Sea, as in the central part of the Atlantic. It is necessary to ensure that the Arctic receives adequate attention and resources.

he explained to the congressmen.

    As I understand it, they will soon bring military equipment or tactical nuclear weapons to our borders ...

      With tactical nuclear weapons, it’s not quite perfect with the enemy.

      Lord, who needs these limitrophs? Does anyone really seriously believe that Russia wants to conquer the Baltic states back? Why for what? To feed these mediocrity again?

        No, of course, Poland and the Baltic countries have always been only a springboard for an attack on Russia, they have attacked several times from these directions, and this hysteria about the attack on these countries we do not need is just an excuse to concentrate significant forces there.

          In my opinion, NATO is now in full order with concentration. Tribaltica, Poland, Ukraine, Georgia, all the countries of the former Warsaw bloc, concentrate - I do not want to. Well, they will always find a reason, a reason, or in an extreme case come up with.
          The only question is, how long will it take for Russia to destroy manpower in the conditions of using modern weapons. What will give them this concentration?

            Perhaps they hope to create chaos like the 90s. The temporary lack of leadership of the state can allow significant progress. And then sitting down on occupied places there will be an attempt to negotiate on new conditions.
            Perhaps they hope to fetter Russia's actions on the Syrian issue.
            One is depressing - they play with nuclear fire. But Europe and the Americas have no other choice. We prevent them from robbing peoples, and we ourselves are sitting on natural riches. And without all this good, those who are used to eating a lot and eat sweetly will quickly slide into poverty. Trends in the emergence of entire cities with the homeless already exist. But the cap system, like banditry, got into trouble and didn’t turn back in any way.

        There is such a thing. Strategically necessary territories .. The Soviet-Finnish war was because of this ... And now NATO is under Leningrad (Peter) And the Baltic is not under our control ... But mediocrity can work perfectly ... Remember high-quality TV Shilalis, WEF receiver, rural . household products .. Non-freezing ports!

        We don’t need it for nothing, but they still hope and hope that the "occupier" will come, rebuild everything and put things in order. Moreover, Europe is hinting louder and louder that there is no money in its treasury for these kept women and that they themselves will have to provide their own food.

      Possible.
      In general, this is pure lies.
      I don’t know how they managed to count a greater number there, but everything is exactly the opposite. Even one Polish army is about eleven combined-arms brigades

      Perhaps, when they declare "numerical superiority", they mean that the assembled group does not exceed the Russian one by three or more times, which does not allow it to conduct offensive operations against the Kaliningrad OR?

        I think that they want to provoke Russia, and Poland and the Baltic countries this cannon fodder for the next weakening of Russia, history says that the Anglo-Saxons have always acted against us.

          The only surprise is how stereotyped they work. In everything that concerns foreign policy - from the creation of "casus belli" where they need it, to "color" revolutions and "sanctions". They do not understand, poor ones, that it will fail once or twice, and then it is calculated at once, because the ears of the stars and stripes stick out too much. No, with perseverance worthy of better use, they walk the same path and stubbornly ram the same wall with their foreheads.

          Brzezinski once rejoiced at how cleverly they pulled the USSR into Afghanistan.
          Today they themselves cannot get out of there, although they are sure that it was Afghanistan that destroyed the Union. And they want to impose on us another Afghanistan, which will ruin, this time, Russia.

          Acting so uncreatively, according to a strictly approved training manual, they forget that Tribaltica and Poland are not Afghanistan at all, and Russia of 2020 is not the USSR of 1979 at all. The arrogant Saxon has an old guide to action, but the conditions are different. Therefore, it doesn’t come in and go out.

          And further. They expect that "zinks" from Poland and the Baltic states will go to Russia and this will overthrow "Putin's totalitarian regime." Only this is unlikely, but in America, by the way, two and a half thousand plastic boxes and more than 20 thousand "three hundredths" have come from Afgan.

            They are waiting for the departure of V.V. Putin! Frozen in anticipation ... And then they will pounce on testing Russia for strength ... So that the boa constrict in anticipation ...

              If only VVP did not make the mistake that the Sverdlovsk Drunkard made in 2000. If he had put, for example, Medvedev or a similar figure, or someone from the "young reformers", we would envy Ukraine today. But what for Ukraine, in Mozambique our especially looking for the priest of warmth would run. And those who stayed would have fought.

              Thank God, the Sverdlovsk drunkard was "mistaken", and America did not prompt in time, she also ran through her happiness. So we turned 180 degrees to the 90s.

              GDP is wrong - let's turn around again, God forbid ....

    and therefore all NATO countries must, yes they must, MUST bring their defense budgets to 2% of GDP, and the United States to strengthen its military grouping in Europe, especially in the Baltic and Black Sea regions

      Normally. Everything is always.
      NATO generals shout about Russian (Soviet) superiority and the Russian (Soviet) threat not because they are afraid of us. A mentally ill person is not afraid of anything - a finger will be sawn off with a blunt knife, and then, when he sees a separate hand and a separate finger, he will start yelling.
      They, the generals, shout because "GIVE MONEY". Like any Western-style commercial firm - no matter how much profit it makes - profits must constantly grow. And this bubble inflates until it crushes itself.

      I saw in Germany a bakery in which one family works. For almost 250 years. Because they work for a fixed profit, and have been living on it for all these 250 years.
      And show me at least one Western mega-corporation that exists or is able to survive such a period without reorganization, division, absorption and other tricks? And because in a mega-corporation, the main thing is not the profit that it is able to exist, but the percentage of sales growth.

      Why am I talking about bakeries and corporations? Yes, because American generals are not military, but hucksters. And the Pentagon is a purely commercial organization. No growth in funding - no, in their opinion, development.
      Hence all the invented "threats".

    Yes, because we have a larger population, a country, and we are at home, but what do you need here?

    Almost a thousand military bases around the world have stumbled, the budget is a trillion dollars, and they are short of money, Russia seems to be threatening and threatening, threatening .... It seems that Trump is pushing Germany to 4% of GDP, because from the Eastern European rogues existing on EU subsidies that it is simply impossible to get anything (except territories).

    Not so long ago, BEFORE we had more than 30 thousand tactical nuclear munitions. Restore if necessary. We will not stand for the price. But we will give a guarantee of complete destruction in any situations.

    From past works

    ... In Estonia, for example, a multinational NATO battalion is on a rotational basis. Plus, the National Defense Forces, composed of two infantry brigades with a state of peacetime. Police and border guards. Only about half a dozen bases where the military are housed. Several military depots.

    In short, all this can be swept away with one salvo of the Iskander brigade (26th missile brigade in the Leningrad region). It’s better to hit at night when they are all sleeping on the bases. 24 ballistic missiles with thermobaric or cluster warheads. Until the morning, few survive. You can pick up a pair of Tu-160 (24 x-101 cruise missiles) and add to the communication centers, command posts and administrative buildings. It’s better to make sure that both cruise and ballistic missiles hit the targets at the same time.

    All that remains of the Defense Forces is cleared by Spetsnaz. Some of the special forces come in from the sea on boats, some come in by air in helicopters, remaining on armored vehicles across the border past the bombed border posts. Fire support for the special forces is provided by the 15th Army Aviation Brigade in the Pskov Region (12 Ka-52 helicopters). All strategic objects have been captured, the remnants of NATO troops are blocked at bases and destroyed. The disorganized, demoralized NATO soldiers have no chance against special forces and attack helicopters equipped with night vision devices.

    With the onset of the morning, when the situation on the battlefield clears up, you can connect tactical aircraft to strike at the remaining nodes of the resistance and enter regular units into the battle. Paratroopers and motorized rifles from Pskov will arrive in the combat zone in a matter of hours.

    In general, you need not even 48, but somewhere 24 hours ...
