    The Kaliningrad region is joined in a semicircle, in case of NATO aggression, all that remains is to block the sea and that's it.

      At the moment, this transfer is more likely associated with the elections in Belarus. Something bad is out there.

        Anything can be! The West is about Russia without nasty things as without joys.

    US deployed nine combat helicopters to Lithuania
    AND...? Does this somehow change the military-political ratio or pose a big threat? It is simply necessary to inform through the media that another Iskander battery and several Bastion coastal complexes have been deployed in Kaliningrad. There will be a shout in the Western media, but the Balts will stop sleeping at night.
