A kind of “gift” of Russia from NATO to the anniversary of the Great Victory


The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, made a statement in connection with the exercises that began in Europe of the North Atlantic Alliance Defender Europe 2020 (Defender of Europe 2020).



The American Minister does not like the behavior of Russia


“Moscow does not intend to change its external course because of NATO’s large-scale military exercises Defender Euro-2020 in close proximity to Russian borders,” Zakharova answered NATO strategists and urged the North Atlantic Alliance to abandon aggressive actions that increase international tension.

So the Foreign Ministry reacted to a statement by US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper at a briefing on the exercises of Defender Europe-2020. The head of the Pentagon emphasized: the purpose of these maneuvers near the borders of Russia is to send a certain signal to Moscow in order to force it to change “bad behavior”.

Mark Esper did not explain what exactly does not suit Americans in Russia's actions. But in the comments of the Russian Foreign Ministry, our claims to America are formulated quite clearly. It is the United States, according to Maria Zakharova, who collects the shock fist of NATO at the borders of Russia.

The already mentioned Defender Europe 2020 maneuvers will be the largest over the past quarter century. About 40 thousand servicemen and 17 NATO countries will take part in them. Now there is a transfer of personnel and weapons from the United States to Europe. The active part of the exercises will be held from April 20 to May 20.


Who threatens peace in Europe


Meanwhile, the Crystal Arrow 2020 maneuvers are already underway in Latvia these days. They started on the second of March. 2,5 thousand military men from Latvia, Albania, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Canada, Montenegro, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain are involved in exercises in the Baltic Republic.

Along with the exercises in Latvia, NATO maneuvers began in Norway. Here they are much larger. About 15 thousand military men from the USA, Great Britain, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway and Finland are preparing combat operations in the Arctic.

NATO strategists hypocritically claim that the alliance’s forces “are aimed at increasing the bloc’s ability to deploy and coordinate actions against any enemy.” However, it is obvious to any sane observer: the goal of NATO activity in the Baltic region and in the north of Scandinavia is Russia.

Last year, the Americans deployed six B-52 strategic bombers from across the ocean to Britain and now they iron the Baltic sky in the border neutral zone. It got to the point that one of the aircraft carried out conventional bombing near the borders of Russia, dropping a training bomb at sea at a distance of 150 km from the Russian naval base.

Experts regarded this action as a blatant provocation. Since the Russian military could take the actions of a bomber for a real attack. Then the incident would develop into a military clash between the military of two nuclear powers. The chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia Valery Gerasimov recalled this at the end of February at a meeting with his French counterpart Francois Lekuentrom.

“There are a number of issues of serious concern,” said General Gerasimov. - First of all, it is an increase in NATO military activity at the Russian borders. The exercises planned for the near future are conducted on the basis of anti-Russian scenarios involving the development of offensive operations. ”

Victory Day through NATO sight


The assessment of the chief of the Russian General Staff objectively shows who actually threatens peace in Europe. NATO’s activity has a really petty little soul. The Defender of Europe 2020 exercises will be held just during the celebrations in Moscow on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. A kind of NATO "gift" to our country.

This is the juxtaposition of NATO warriors to the real defenders of Europe in 1945, to the victors in the most difficult war for history humanity causes a negative feeling. After all, whatever one may say, today, under the NATO banners, mainly the heirs of those who, along with Hitler, went to Moscow, are gathered.

Now, with the tacit consent of the former allies of the USSR, they are trying to revise the history of the war. Last September, the European Parliament adopted the scandalous resolution “On the Importance of Preserving Historical Memory for the Future of Europe”, in which it declared: “The USSR and Nazi Germany were equally totalitarian regimes aimed at conquering the world” and divided the responsibility for the war between Hitler and Stalin in two.

It is noteworthy that the German MPs from Christian Democrats, Liberals, Greens, and Social Democrats voted for the resolution without exception. Just yesterday, repenting for Hitler’s crimes, they now smoothly shift the blame for the war to the USSR.

The Bundeswehr contingent will meet our Victory Day at the western borders of Russia. And even if the Germans are now backing Americans, the symbolism of the Defender of Europe 2020 maneuvers should be understood even by the most dumb politicians. Understand the full extent of the degradation of the Western elite, which started military games near the borders of Russia on our Victory Day.

“In the history of Russia there were many who tried to threaten her by rattling weapons. All these attempts ended ingloriously, ”Maria Zakharova reminded the“ Western partners ”on the agency’s website. And we do not need to remind it.

        Just because Zakharova is a woman and seems to represent the interests of my country, I won’t spread her blunders.
        Any curious person should drive into the search engine "Zakharova disgraced"

          As for "my country," I would argue. And what is wrong with Zakharova? Manipulate, my friend, in the most arrogant way. I watched her repeatedly, quite competent and informed person. And about mistakes - everyone has them, and you don’t have to make a system out of it. Tea, not yours (?) Dogs - titan of erudition!
          And the main question - what is the trolling belt?

Unlike yours chapters the State Department (no matter how you beat yourself in the chest with your heels, what kind of Russia are you looking for), who directly, in all hearing, called the Americans dumb and called to be fit for it, how proud he is, managing dumb (at his request) by the people.

    I like the military, no really like it. Politics is a completely different thing - we can swear, we are of a different social orientation. But the military is simple - if the division is located near our borders, it means that on the contrary it is also necessary to set up a division, and they absolutely do not care about the political situation.

    I am sure that our armed forces will also be diligently trained in targeting the headquarters, airfields and other places of deployment of Russian Iskander troops

    ... "the purpose of these maneuvers near the borders of Russia is to send Moscow a signal" ...
    How quickly in Europe the lessons of previous years are forgotten!
    How many such signalmen have already been disposed of (Karl 12, Napoleon, Hitler), but everything is not there!

    Is it in the framework of this exercise that the British special forces proudly landed at the airport of Minsk under the applause of Lukashenko?

    This juxtaposition of NATO warriors to the real defenders of Europe in 1945, to the winners in the most difficult war in the history of mankind, evokes a negative feeling. After all, whatever one may say, today, under the NATO banners, mainly the heirs of those who, along with Hitler, went to Moscow, are gathered.


    So it is necessary to talk about it without hesitation, what are we afraid of? All repeats...

    They write that in Germany planes do not fly and tanks break down - everyone is beating in the chest, they say, your NATO chickens mockery. Nato conducts exercises - all amicably resent the evil, insidious NATO. And so it would be nice to look at the numbers of troops in NATO and the European part of Russia starting from the year 20th. And mention the scenario of the exercises west and east, and at the same time the number of participants

    I think that everything is not so bad at the Russian borders, and if the collective west is "rattling" weapons, it is more likely due to its powerlessness and the consciousness of the impossibility to influence Russia. They, too, are not fools and understand that by the number of troops nothing can be solved strategically, especially since they are not being deployed promptly and according to a "peace schedule." In fact, these “teachings” do not give and will not give, in the sense of combat training, but are designed to throw dust in the eyes and this can be seen even with the naked eye. Something needs to be opposed to all Russian power, so they organized a movement with troop movements on a peaceful schedule, but without air cover and false movements and targets. Compared with the transfer of our troops (about 100 thousand) by air and in two, three days, their "exercises" are a breed for military exercises. I think so!

    They will spread the caranovirus throughout Europe, and they will arrange a "gift". They would remember that the WHO Pandemic has announced. As small children, kulichiki mold from kakul and put “sweets” in their mouths. fool
