Lithuania expressed concern about the sudden check of the combat readiness of the RF Armed Forces

59

As expected, a surprise check on the combat readiness of troops in Russia was not left without comments from some neighbors. In particular, the Lithuanian government said that they are "extremely concerned about the Russian military maneuvers, in which tens of thousands of servicemen are involved."


Vilnius said that "the fact that Russia is carrying out large-scale maneuvers against the background of the ongoing armed conflict in eastern Ukraine and against the background of a sharp aggravation of the situation in the Transcaucasus between Armenia and Azerbaijan causes concern."

It should be emphasized that Russia informed the OSCE about the verification of the combat readiness of the troops, informing about the zones in which military maneuvers will be conducted.



Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that, according to the decision of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, the surprise check affects the troops of the Southern and Western military districts. The airborne forces, as well as the marines of the Pacific and Northern fleets, are involved in the maneuvers. At the same time, a surprise check is seen as an important stage in preparation for the Caucasus-2020 exercises.

In total, about 150 thousand military personnel, more than 400 aircraft, helicopters and UAVs, 106 ships and over 25 thousand units of other equipment are involved in the maneuvers.

The Foreign Ministry and the Russian Defense Ministry have not commented on the "Lithuanian concern" at the moment.

            It's time for Russia to kill all the lying around! Not necessarily rockets! The word can be tart too. Although I would use rockets .. Apparently our leader is a little wise.

          The number of l / s raised by alarm in Russia exceeds the number of the army of all three "tigers" together with NATO support. By understanding this, one can understand their concern. If anything, then they do not shine.

          Learn the story.
          On March 31, 1954, the government of the Soviet Union came up with an initiative for the USSR to join NATO.


          "It was a propaganda move: we showed goodwill, but you rejected it. In general, it is difficult to imagine that any of the Soviet leaders seriously considered the entry of the USSR into NATO."

          NATO also understood very well that Soviet proposal - "trolling" tongue
          So do not get fooled by such "diplomatic delights" laughing

      Write correctly - Lithuania put it in my pants ... laughing But, to be serious, the check of combat readiness is connected with the situation of the Armenian - Azerbaijan conflict! Because the only country that stands for peace is Russia. And only our Armed Forces can cool the ardor in the region there. Turkey fully supports Baku at the highest level, plus the local community puts pressure on Aliyev, there is a huge US diplomatic mission in Armenia ... A big war in this region is just a dream of the Anglo-Saxons!

            Yes, this is an ordinary political barking. Under the cover of this "barking" NATO is successfully building up its groupings in the Baltic Special Military District and in Poland. Of particular concern is not even the complete superiority of the NATO fleet, but the special position of Gotland. The island is decisive for our communications. And if now / it’s kind of neutral, yeah / Sweden places its own batteries in the Republic of Belarus there, then in the event of a conflict, any possibility of contacting the Kaliningrad UR will be cut off. There will be only one option ....- to advance through the marshland of Belarus. We have enormous experience in advancing troops in the indicated azimuths, besides, with the active counteraction of enemy forces, all this happened. Operation Bagration went into a special account for the Red Army .... The pace was set, and when deploying offensive operations in "In Europe, employees of the main central apparatus of the General Staff in telegraph negotiations sometimes teased and tried in every possible way to speed up the decisions and actions of the advanced mechanized detachments of the Red Army ... In principle, the idea, decision and execution were correct. Only as we were in 41st ... But such an attack sometimes changed the rhythm of the Soviet offensive. There, another arithmetic was already used, measured not by the kilometers traveled, but by the kilograms dropped on the seemingly indestructible and impregnable city-fortress.

      Yes, you first find the Chinese and Kazakhs in Krasnoyarsk, then claim that "China will clean up through the Kazakhs." I also live in Krasnoyarsk, and I can unequivocally assert that the Chinese here are once or twice and miscalculated. Most of the visitors are Uzbeks, Tajiks, Armenians and Azerbaijanis. If you really live in Krasnoyarsk, at least go out on the street, or sit at home self-isolating and scribbling your own fantasies on the Internet?

    Maybe the embassy will answer, and so the gentlemen have developed vigorous activity in recent times - the goal was voiced by the Deputy Chairman of the National Security and Defense Committee of the Sejm Laurinas Kasciunas - Lithuania should strive for the status of the main US ally in the region (they want an article with his beloved wife) and for this. ..
    and the proposal of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, Linas Linkevicius, to include in the new agreement the entire Russian and Chinese nuclear arsenal, immediately supported by the State Department
    and a call to cooperate unconditionally with the UN and the Dutch court ... and ... but there are too many competitors ...
