The Russian Embassy in the USA called the American MLRS exercises in Estonia a provocation

The Russian Embassy in the United States considers the military exercises of the US Army Rail Gunner Rush with the use of multiple launch rocket systems, taking place from September 1 to September 10, in Estonia, in the immediate vicinity of the Russian borders, as provocative and dangerous. This is stated in the widespread statement of the Russian diplomatic mission.


The statement says that Russia has repeatedly proposed to the United States and its allies to limit the exercises near the Russian borders, moving them away from the Russia-NATO contact line.

Why is this demonstrative rattling weapons? What signal do NATO members want to send us? Who is really fueling tensions in Europe? And all this is happening in the context of an aggravated political situation in that region of the European continent. We consider the actions of the US Armed Forces in Estonia to be provocative and extremely dangerous for regional stability

- stated at the Russian Embassy in the United States.

Earlier it became known that as part of the Rail Gunner Rush exercise at the training ground in Estonia, American artillerymen from the 1st Battalion of the 6th Field Artillery Regiment of the 41st Field Artillery Brigade of the US Army and members of the 1st Infantry Brigade of the Estonian Defense Forces will conduct live firing for the first time MLRS systems. It is emphasized that this will be the first live-fire exercise for the 41st Field Artillery Brigade of the US Army outside the base of deployment in Grafenvoehr, Germany.

    It seems that the American masters of the Balts are not at all sorry for their Baltics. And they don’t think about themselves. Russia may snap back .... Yes, so that little will not seem to everyone. And where will the Baltic states be after that?
    Or is it the wet dreams of the Balts in the form of a groan "well, conquer us faster, we are tired, we want to eat."

          I looked at the globe - where is the "northeast" in Estonia? Did not work out.
          Even the inscription "Estonia" does not fit on its territory.
          But also, in the same direction - we are opposing "Russian aggression".
          It's funny to look at this farce. The Americans need to show remarkable skill so that their MLRS shells do not fly out of Estonia.

            From Tapa, where the exercises are taking place, to the border with Russia is exactly the same distance as from Kamenka to the border with Finland, where the 138th MRB regularly fires from "Smerchi" and "Grad". Everything is on a parity basis.

            The Bobochinsky Proving Ground is a Russian territory where the Russian Armed Forces are improving their combat training skills. What is the US military doing near the border with Russia? Maybe Russia will also be allowed to carry out rocket firing somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico? belay

        And it is better to launch calibers from ships of the Baltic Fleet from under the island of Hiiumaa to a training ground in the Pskov region.
        So that a couple of dozen missiles fly over Estonia and hit training targets in Russia ...
        Provocations must be answered harshly. Then there will be a sharp decrease in those who want to provoke, and not "express concern" on the sidelines of the Foreign Ministry ...

          Well, it's better to carry out such shooting from the sea from Kaliningrad, and at several ranges :), let them fly through the entire Tribaltica and 404 :)) shoot heels, enough.

        I don't know what gets in the way, but the Gulf of Mexico is much farther from the vital centers of the United States than the Finnish one - from St. Petersburg and Pskov. Unless the oil producers get a little scared, but in general the storage facilities in the US are full - the effect will be weak.

      Most likely, this is being done taking into account the military potential in Kaliningrad. They are worried about their air defense and Iskander. And the American MLRS are already receiving ammunition with different calibers and ranges of 200-500 km. And with guided missiles.

        Vladimir Putin said on August 27 that Alexander Lukashenko asked him to form a reserve of law enforcement officers to provide assistance to the official Minsk. At the same time, Putin stressed that the reserve will be used only if the situation gets out of control. "When extremist, I want to emphasize this, the elements, hiding behind political slogans, will not cross certain boundaries and will not simply start robbery: they will not start setting fire to cars, houses, banks, try to seize administrative buildings, and so on.", - the President of Russia described the possible conditions for the use of the reserve.

        It is possible to start with joint military exercises in the west of Belarus - Belarusian Special Forces + Russian Aviation.

    The DPRK does not foul on this matter. They respond adequately - with a salvo of their ballistic missiles. And they also say that exercises are underway. And after such tears, they want me to believe in the US strike in case of war. What about children, business? The US is getting so impudent because they don't believe in an adequate answer either !!

    Snap back? Of course you can. But they are conducting exercises on their own territory, so there are almost no options for "gnawing". Unless only to arrange exercises at their border. but in general, exercises near the border of other states can always be viewed as a provocation. Regardless of which trench to look from. From our point of view, the American MLRS exercises in Estonia are a provocation. Our exercises in an even smaller Kaliningrad region from the point of view of our neighbors are also a provocation. From its point of view, exercises at the training grounds of the Leningrad Region in the immediate vicinity of Finland may also look like a provocation

    Nature laid altruism in the genes of homo sapiens
    still at the stage when he came from someone there, already
    I do not know why. It was originally distributed
    on members of the clan (they cannot be killed, eaten, robbed)
    After a couple of thousand years of evolution, altruism has already become
    spread to members of the tribe, and through
    millennium for the PEOPLE. Today this process
    to be in the "continent" (EU) stage and is moving to
    side of the "planet" (we are all inhabitants of a small planet,
    let's live together, etc.)
    So today, if someone offers to conquer someone,
    ("teach a lesson, punish, bomb", etc.), says that
    who is at what stage of evolution.
