NATO is not going to stop training near the Russian border

NATO is not going to stop training near the Russian border

NATO continues to conduct military maneuvers on the borders of Russia, despite the coronavirus pandemic. The goal of these exercises is to provoke Moscow into retaliatory aggression, writes Contra Magazin.


According to the publication, Russia has been unilaterally observing for the second month the moratorium on military exercises introduced because of the coronavirus. In turn, NATO, which had not previously responded to Moscow’s call for a ban on exercises, continues military maneuvers near Russian borders.

Despite the infection, the Open Spirit Alliance teachings were completed in Latvia on May 14, and Allied Spirit maneuvers are planned for June, which will become a smaller version of the Defender Europe exercises. NATO is going to work out the deployment of American troops to Europe and their deployment along the Russian border. American plans to participate in exercises aviationincluding strategic bombers.

The publication believes that the main task of NATO’s maneuvers is to provoke Moscow in retaliation in order to further accuse the Russians of “aggression”. After which the alliance will have a justification for the need for an even larger number of military exercises. Moscow’s attempts to normalize relations with the alliance have been unsuccessful for a long time, because the Cold War supporters do not need this, because “the world does not bring money.”

    Or maybe, really, come to them for training, as controllers, check them for coronovirus, find it en masse, and put these warriors in long quarantine? It’s enough to be terpils, otherwise it’s as if by chance they crawl into our land, don’t see an answer, and start a kilometer a week, for starters, to “bite off” our land ...

          So in Europe, a title contest for exercises?

          Where to apply? And is there a big prize? I have a great option: "Farting Steam"))

          Well, in the color of this, then don't put on any protective equipment against the virus and continue the LGBT policy in the exercises! Maybe even now this will be of use!

        The plan is to participate in US aviation, including strategic bombers.

        They want to apparently repeat the unforgettable flight of F.G. Powers.
        Powers manned U-2 reconnaissance plane was shot down during a flight over Sverdlovsk on May 1, 1960. Powers survived, was sentenced by a Soviet court for espionage to 10 years in prison. He served his sentence in the Vladimir Central Prison (now SIZO No. 1 of Vladimir).

      Stop being terpils

      I don’t understand your logic. NATO is conducting exercises in NATO countries. If Russia will conduct exercises in conditional Kaliningrad on its own land, will NATO also suffer?
      otherwise it’s as if by chance they climb into our land, don’t see an answer, and start to “bite off” our land a kilometer a week, to begin with ...

      Absurdity. This is immediately a war. Including with the use of nuclear weapons. Since there will be a threat to the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation.

        why then they do not conduct exercises in Spain, France, Italy, England, Greece, Canada, and so on, everything, it’s just an escalation of the situation
        And besides, they always conduct exercises in those climatic conditions where they foresee military operations

        Here it is the NATO military. The damned capitalists want to start a nuclear war. Destroy the island of happiness and prosperity of our Great Russia. We need to tighten our belts and tighten our ranks around the EP party and the Government.

              You need to call a spade a spade. Commentary is strictly in the logic of this article. The teachings of a hostile bloc near the borders of the state. Means threatening. The answer against NATO aggression is nuclear war. Since the parties are nuclear powers. If it is threatening, all citizens must rally around the ruling party and, accordingly, the government. But the theatricality that you noticed is that this is impossible. From your point of view. laughing Why? You only know that. lol

    In my opinion, let them crawl, train, get used to the ground, again. It is only necessary in the adjacent territory to keep 2-3 regiments of communication with the RER installations, so that each bunch on the air can be heard, decomposed into molecules and entered into the database

      And in addition to this, it is better to conduct exercises somewhere in Cuba to hold joint with China, Iran, India .. hi
      Much would change in world politics!
      Here we have a tank biathlon! And why not organize a naval biathlon in the Atlantic and finally in the Caribbean?
      And then, together, drink Cuban rum and smoke cigars of the world?

        Moreover, it is much cheaper than sending reconnaissance aircraft and straining SVR. Almost 90% of enemy data can be collected "without leaving home." The only negative is the formation among foreign military and politicians of a false sense of their own impunity for their countries participating in these NATO exercises.
        On the good, such provocations need to be reacted more seriously, up to the severance of economic and diplomatic relations, with the blocking of borders, perceiving them as official preparations for military aggression. But our government, although it consists of representatives of oligarchs who consider themselves to be "elite," but acts according to the usual principle of a simple peasant "until the thunder strikes ..." or "the cock does not peck ...".

    That is, the fact of aggression has already been recognized, now they want an answer, but if they get it?
    Moscow’s attempts to normalize relations with the alliance have been unsuccessful for a long time, because the Cold War supporters do not need this, because “the world does not bring money.”

    But all attempts must be abandoned and forgotten to even try. Persistent internal affairs need to be done, but let NATO continue to puff and swagger.
