How Polish paratroopers are preparing to “oppose Russia”: on the exercises of Defender Europe-2020 Plus

47

The Alliance conducts large-scale military exercises Defender Europe-2020 Plus. They take place at a training ground in Dravsko-Pomorsk on the territory of Poland and set as their goal the development of actions for the defense of the eastern borders of NATO. Of course, Russia is considered the main probable opponent.


Note that the declared exercises were supposed to begin in the spring of 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the start date of the events was postponed to June. Significantly reduced the scale of the exercises. Previously, 18 countries participating in the exercises were announced to NATO, including 17 members of the alliance and specially invited Georgia, but now only the armed forces of Poland and the USA are taking part in them. But this circumstance is just indicative: now it is Warsaw that claims to have a special role in the "defense of the eastern frontiers" of NATO and is trying to occupy the position of US chief assistant in Eastern Europe.

The preparation of the Polish military for the exercises is described on the official Twitter page of the 6th Airborne Brigade named after Brigadier General Stanislav František Sosabowski. This Polish brigade is deployed in Krakow and includes 2 airborne and 1 airborne assault battalions, as well as support units.

During the military exercises, the brigade develops skills in landing and joint actions with the US military. In addition to the personnel, the landing of military equipment of the brigade is also being worked out.


On video frames, we can observe how the paratroopers bring out the equipment and prepare it for participation in maneuvers. Columns with vehicles prepared for landing will move towards the landfill.


According to the scenario of the exercises, the American and Polish troops have to jointly repel a non-nuclear attack and the subsequent invasion of enemy troops from the east. The total number of troops involved is 6 thousand people, including the personnel of not only the Polish 6th Airborne Brigade, but also the 2nd Armored Brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division of the American Army and the 12th Mechanized Brigade of the Polish Army. It is interesting that the American military participating in the exercises is twice as large as the Polish - 4000 against 2000 people.

Although the NATO command has repeatedly assured that the main goal of the exercises is to develop the logistics of the Alliance’s armed forces, Moscow considers the anti-Russian focus of maneuvers obvious.

Moreover, almost simultaneously with the exercises in Poland, NATO conducts maneuvers in the Baltic states. Such events do not contribute to the removal of mutual tension between the Russian Federation and the North Atlantic Alliance. In fact, this is a demonstration of strength that needs to be adequately answered.

                    The Commonwealth was liquidated in the 18th century and part of it was part of the Russian Empire. And only 123 years after our revolution she again appeared as a British litter. And again I ran into liquidation. As they say fools, life does not teach anything. The next time I completely eliminate it, along with the population. They themselves make a target.

                    The Kingdom of Poland (Polish: Królestwo Polskie) is a region in Central Europe that was part of the Russian Empire following the Napoleonic Wars since 1815. In the summer of 1915, during the First World War, it was occupied by German and Austro-Hungarian troops. In November 1918 it became an independent state.

          Russia is too small to become a base for Poland. If Poland sent the main sales of its products to the east, it would be poor as Ukraine.

              trading partners because Poland buys a lot of gas and oil from Russia. But when it comes to exporting goods from Poland, Russia is not even among the top six. Export from Poland to Russia is only about three percent of all Polish exports. 90% of Polish exports go to the EU, 3% to Russia and 7% to the rest of the world. In fact, for Polish exporters Russia does not exist.

            And you count how many resources the Soviet Union pumped into post-war Poland, and then the Anglo-Saxons for the collapse of the European Slavic fault in Europe. And all this for free. Now you have American soldiers urinating on flower beds in your cities and fucking your ladies. You are an intricate entertainer. I recommend that you read the book of the Polish author "The Golden Harvest". There he writes about your own compatriots who earn on the corpses of burned Jews in your concentration camps. 300 years for free, and thanks only to those who trample you now.
