Military Review

Up to 2500 US Army soldiers will be transferred to Bulgaria

72

The United States is once again strengthening its military presence in Eastern Europe. This time, the Pentagon will deploy up to 2500 US military personnel to Bulgaria.


The agreement on the deployment of the American military on Bulgarian soil was reached on October 7, 2020 as part of the 10-year Roadmap for Defense Cooperation signed by the two countries. Bulgarian Defense Minister Krasimir Karakochanov said that the two countries intend to intensify cooperation in the Black Sea region and work together to achieve the main goals of the North Atlantic Alliance.

Washington and Sofia started talking about a joint security roadmap back in 2019. The need for a roadmap in the United States and Bulgaria is explained by the growing need for joint opposition to maritime, hybrid and cyber threats in the Black Sea region. The United States is going to help Bulgaria modernize its armed forces, obtain newer defense technologies, and increase the scale of military training for officers.

If we talk about potential adversaries of Bulgaria in the region, then we perfectly understand that as a NATO country Bulgaria now belongs to the anti-Russian bloc of forces. By increasing its military presence in Bulgaria, the United States is striving to get as close as possible to the Russian borders in all possible directions.

But, on the other hand, it is not excluded that Bulgaria, like its neighbor Greece, is concerned about the growth of Turkey's military-political activity. In this vein, the presence of the American military will certainly play into the hands of the Bulgarian leadership.

As Admiral Emil Eftimov told the press, the American military will be stationed at four military bases in Bulgaria. It is not yet very clear to what kind of troops the troops being transferred to the country will belong, and what functions they will perform on Bulgarian territory.

Note that Bulgaria has been officially cooperating with the United States since 2006, when the first defense cooperation agreement came into force. Now, in addition to the decision to deploy the American military, Bulgaria has signed an agreement on the purchase of 8 F-16 Block 70 aircraft. The fighters should be delivered in 2024.

      Because the author understands Bulgarian, through Google Translate.

      This is a continuation of the hitherto existing treaty with the United States, and as they have until now, they are not deploying, but can keep a maximum of 2 soldiers on exercises in Bulgaria, at our bases in the country. This has existed since we were admitted to NATO. This is a continuation of the agreements for 500 years.

        And it doesn't seem strange to you that the United States has increased its military contingent to the maximum, in almost all countries, one way or another adjacent to Russia.
        In fact, preparations are underway for a war with Russia, and all these exercises are just a cover for the first stage of mobilization.

          No, colleague, I don't think so. The mobilization and pulling of forces to the borders cannot be hidden, you more from your Naryshkin. Every passable military intelligence computer will beep against unusual troop movements.
          It cannot be hidden from the NATO allies either, because they too must catch up. And in general, no one will start a nuclear war like this.

          What war? Tell me, which Metropolis will fiddle with its colony, which is the Russian Federation today?
          Open your eyes, dear! Thirty years have passed since the "collapse" of the USSR, and we all live on the backlog of the Union, while there has never been a happy future for the people of Russia.
          There will be no war with the Russian Federation. London and Washington regularly pump out fossils, money, human brains from our country, and ordinary citizens both suck their paws and suck them. RF today-COLONY! Not understanding this fact, or not wanting to admit it, led us to what we have today.
          Ask yourself, if the Kremlin wanted the prosperity of its people, it would take away the ownership of all minerals and resources, giving it all to corporations?
          Where is free medicine, education, apartments? In the USSR it was, and the bowels of the country belonged to the PEOPLE!
          He is a capitalist and a capitalist in Africa, which means that these capitalists do not care about the citizens of the country, they only care about PROFIT.
          All 110 oligarchs like Russian, in fact, DO NOT HAVE RUSSIAN CITIZENSHIP! That is, there are NO Russian oligarchs in nature. And these oligarchs, for a moment, own all industries in the country, from heavy industry to agriculture.
          So what kind of war are you talking about? This is sheer stupidity. No corporation, the IMF and other foreign organizations will fiddle with the colony that lays the golden eggs.

        It's just that what the Bulgarians are scoundrels and so on and so on is not the first article dedicated to NATO and the Warsaw Pact countries, all traitors and scoundrels. It will be the same if we are alive and see how this is happening in the post-Soviet republics. And most of all those who today propose to withdraw themselves everywhere will shout.

      It was discussed. We are talking about 2500 servicemen who were stationed on a rotational principle / temporarily / in 4 offices for joint use. Their total number is limited to a maximum of 5 thousand. but not more than 3 months a year, that is, within the framework of joint training and education, which corresponds to the status of training grounds.
      By the way about the so-called. bases! There are no American bases in Bulgaria! Specifically, these 4 military facilities have the status - Bulgarian military installations and facilities for joint use - training grounds that are used by the Bulgarian and other armies for military equipment. training. What does the term "joint crawling" mean? Colonel Yavor Mateev, beginning. Department of Joint Constructions in Moscow Region: "All buildings and structures are Bulgarian property, and foreign forces have the right to seize them after agreement with Bulgaria."
      In the framework of OSCE treaties, interested countries carry out on-site inspections. From 1994 to the present day, inspectors of the Russian Federation have carried out more than 50 inspections of military establishments located on the territory of Bulgariaincluding Graf Ignatievo, Novo Selo, Krumovo and Bezmer. They gave interviews on Bulgarian TV.

        Boyan, hi.
        I hope that I am alive and well ?!

        The opinion of the participants was divided into two camps.
        Some recollect that Bulgarians have repeatedly found themselves with Russians on different sides of the "barricades".
        Others believe that Bulgaria is not an independent country in decision-making.

        It seems to me that the American side is trying to "sit on two chairs" here by such a step.
        Show the Bulgarians that they (the Americans) are the best friends of the Bulgarian people).
        And to show Turkey that their hegemonism will not work.
        2500 American soldiers will breastfeed. And maybe they will even persuade the Sultan to behave in accordance!
        Americans do not need to protect Bulgarians from Russians. They have no feeble-minded people. They clearly know what the Russians can and want.
        So in the future we have only a Turkish trace.
        But since the Americans have never defended anyone yet, the bottom line is that their presence is symbolic.
        I hug. With God.
        I left for my granddaughter.

          Hi Wang! All right, I hope you are doing well too? drinks
          Some recollect that Bulgarians have repeatedly found themselves with Russians on different sides of the "barricades". Others believe that Bulgaria is not an independent country in decision-making.

          And those and those are not friends with logic! After all, Russia also often found itself on different sides of the barricades! Politics is guided by interests! Recently, in an interview with P. Zarubin, Putin directly says: "In big politics, actually, there are no friends!" And about non-independence, well, in this world, everyone is interdependent! Whoever is bigger and stronger has more options!
          It seems to me that the American side is trying to "sit on two chairs" here by such a step. To show the Bulgarians that they are ... are the best friends of the Bulgarian people). And also to show Turkey that their hegemonism will not work ... The Americans do not need to protect the Bulgarians from the Russians ... in the future we have only a Turkish trace. But since the Americans have never defended anyone yet, then ... their presence is symbolic.

          Here I completely agree with you! good Erdogan has become a threat to the interests of the United States, and at the same time Russia! The United States will not fight for Bulgaria or Greece, against the Turks! And against Russia, no one will fight! But the very presence of the American military, to set a loose conventional framework for the Turks. The Greeks themselves are asking the United States to open new bases there! Of course, if the Turks decide, no Americans will save! Let's remember the Kurds in Syria! Unfortunately, in the current realities, one cannot rely on Russia either. Such an opportunity will appear with time, as the conflict potential of Erdogan's neo-Ottoman ambitions with Russian interests grows! This is inevitable, and I admit in the foreseeable future a radical shift towards allied relations between the Balkan countries and Russia. hi

            Good analysis, friend.
            Your head "cooks" superbly.

            To me, our "supreme" policy reminds me of the expression - "to spite my grandmother, I will frostbite my ears."
            Therefore, everyone is running around with one riddle - what does Putin think?
            And he does not think anything like that in order to focus on this.
            This is our character at the current time.

            There will be a shift in the relationship.
            Such a half-hearted state is not natural.
            Only I understand that you meant a positive shift?
            Here, unfortunately, I do not share this point of view.
            For example - Poles - Slavs, have turned into our traditionally bitter enemies.
            The rejection of Orthodoxy and conversion to Catholicism did their dirty deed.
            I am not saying that such a focus will take place in Bulgaria, but the West is so dangerous because it is inventing more and more new forms of influence and influence.
            And we (Russians and Slavs) begin to take action only after "our ranks" have been mowed down.
            And we must work ahead of the curve.
            But this is not even worth dreaming about with our powers that be.
            It is melancholy to realize that it is so mediocre that we are "profiling" our history and country.

              I do not pretend to be some kind of professional analyst. But you know, some things hurt your eyes! For example, the policy of your "supreme" to Turkey and Erdogan! What is more important for Russia when it comes to Turkey? Straits, Bosphorus! For centuries this is the main interest of Russia in the Balkans! It was not possible to take it, so the GDP decided to kindle the Turks, to tame them tsk.! How much retreat and indulgence did he make to Erdogan? That Turkish streams, nuclear power plants, then S-400, the opening of the domestic market for Turkish companies, etc.! The list is big! As a result, instead of making Turkey dependent, Russia itself became dependent on it! And how many slaps from the side of the Turks did Russia beat? The list is long too! As a result, Russia received absolutely nothing! Erdogan is becoming more and more impudent, less and less takes into account the interests of Russia! And it cannot be otherwise, since despite all the Kremlin's attempts, their interests with Turkey fundamentally contradict! The illusion is that Russia and the Turks can somehow get along!
              For me, the GDP made a number of fundamental mistakes, whose consequences will be long-term!
              With all this negative alignment, I see a good prospect for relations between Bulgaria and Russia! It is on the basis of the threat from neo-Ottoman Turkey! Bulgaria and Russia have a lot of things in common! And no fundamental contradictions in interests! Here only one question arises - when do our and your rulers realize the seriousness of the situation? Before it can be prevented or after it happens ??? That's how I judge, maybe I'm wrong, I don't know ... what

                Boyan, you know, this is the situation here.
                Neither ours nor yours are independent figures.
                Some are more, some are less dependent on external global players.
                I don't think you follow my comments on other issues. You and I intersect on branches when the questions concern either Turkey or Bulgaria.
                Honor, on the freedom of time. Maybe you will be interested in what I wrote.
                But in short, this is the case.
                The world is divided into two parts - globalist bankers and industrialists-nationalists.
                Russia is under the external control of the former.
                Bulgaria is under external control of the second.
                That's rough.
                Turkey is a bone of contention and a provoking element.
                Putin just received the instructions that you voiced.
                Even if a person is completely insane, if he has delirium tremens, if he has absolutely no knowledge of the history of his country, then even then he should not think of doing something for the benefit of Turkey.
                And even more so to do.
                But here we have a completely clinical case that defies any comprehension and understanding.
                Here is our alignment.

          As well as during WWII, although Bulgaria did not participate in the war with the USSR, German troops were stationed on its territory.

          That word "though" is out of place! German troops cannot be avoided. But they will try not to participate in the war against the USSR, this is the maximum possible that the country in which the Wehrmacht is located can do! By the way, the German army entered Bulgaria at a time when Germany and the USSR were very active friends, even discussed the entry of the latter into the Axis!

          I answered another comment on the branch. You know, there have always been small-minded people, they are in all countries. Even during social events, there were similar cases, but then there were no bottles of paint, so they did obscene inscriptions on stops, fences, slabs, etc. with graphite sticks or carnations.

              Yes, it and the Americans do not run around Bulgaria with the AR-16! For all these years, I have seen only one American military man alive - a very young guy, their military attaches to the embassy! And it was at a meeting on the USAF program on financing repairs of children's schools, nursing homes, etc.

              Most of them are Russians who have switched to permanent residence in Bulgaria. We do not consider them strangers. And the Americans really do not exist with us. As they themselves say, they do not want to cause unnecessary negative moods towards themselves in the prevailing Russophile Bulgaria. hi

              Well, I liked this comment, which I wanted to hear from a sane person.

              Hello, Vlad! hi Our utilities cleaned the scribbles from the bus stops yesterday. They often draw on the facades too! Self-proclaimed "artists" sometimes even argue that this is art-graffiti! Graffiti is not art if it contains obscenity or prohibited symbols! You can not draw on the ordinary with sacred meaning. Some idiots don't understand the difference!
              By the way, even in Russia they are not aware of the Bulgarian laws, which is why they often speculate like "the Bulgarians have defiled"!
              For painting on a monument, burial slabs or other objects of a similar meaning, a fine and coverage of cleaning costs are provided. And if a physical injury is inflicted, a breakdown of the integrity of the object, the performer will be obliged to pay repairs, and will also receive an administrative term!
              With the same monument there was a similar case of painting, recently. The perpetrators turned out to be 2 schoolgirls in 13 years. They got bored at school and decided to "spend time creatively." Since they are youngsters, they fined their parents.
              And what is allowed on public monuments? I'll clarify - funeral monuments, personal property! With the permission of the authorities, various kinds of events can be held on the monuments, including protests, as well as a temporary change in the appearance of the object! For example, you can "dress" it or put decors! In front of the same monument to the Soviet army in Sofia, various flash mobs were held, as well as the theater of an anti-totalitarian plot in the open! There was a case when a Russian woman Nadezhda Tolokonnikova conducted a flash mob, albeit without permission, so the police stopped the action ...


              The monument to Alyosha was dressed in a multi-meter colored cloth. Here is an example, with one monument of the Bulgarian partisans - "dressed" as Piju and Penda / Bulgarian national fairy tale characters - martenitsi /.


              A prerequisite - after the event, the object must be presented in its original form! hi

        Specifically, these 4 military facilities have the status - Bulgarian military installations and facilities for joint use - training grounds that are used by the Bulgarian and other armies for military equipment. training.

        Are there military facilities in the United States for joint use, where Bulgaria could send 2500 of its soldiers?

          Such events are held under various exchange programs at the training grounds of NATO countries. Almost 5 thousand. (17% of the personnel) the Bulgarian military participated. For example, the 68th brigade of the "Special Forces", every year goes to train and train at the training grounds in Fort Bragg and in Lamego / Portugal /.

      In VO, more recently a Bulgarian (or "Bulgarian" request ) vividly babbled about the Turkish threat in the Transcaucasus at this stage for Armenia, and in the future for Russia.

      And at the same time, completely ignoring that for Bulgaria ...

      Did they believe in the "Indestructible Brotherhood / Unity of NATO"?

        Erdogan's Turkey is a threat to all neighboring and not only states. Although NATO provides a rather tentative guarantee, it certainly cannot be counted on. Another question! What does Russia guarantee? The Turks have occupied the most fertile northern regions of Syria and will not leave there! The fate of Karabakh is being decided and clearly not in the crawl of Armenia! Like "this is within the borders of Azerbaijan, it does not apply to us"! And Crimea, Transnistria, South Ossetia, Abkhazia, in whose borders were they? Karabakh is not the same thing or what? It turns out too ambivalent!

      You know, in Bulgaria, as in most other countries, somewhere, someone draws something anywhere. There are 100 times more similar cases in Russia. A bottle of paint is cheap, and at night some inadequate people get bored. I do not understand what the "desecration" of the monument is, if the inscriptions were cleaned from the municipality in the morning. Tomorrow someone else will have an unhealthy thought in their head to draw something and clean it up! The Pametnik stood as it was! It was renovated in September. And we are building new ones in honor of Russia!



      If you are so Thrifty, you better take care of the monuments in your country!

    The fish are looking for where it is deeper, and the Bulgarians are looking for where they can get something. Apparently Bulgarians (at least the elite) want to earn extra money on this. 2,5 thousand is not enough. But it is not specified - for the duration of the exercises or on an ongoing basis? Unless, of course, this is a fake.

    Strange ... we don't know yet ... Nobody in Bulgaria discussed this.

    The occupation administration never asks the Aborigines for their views on their actions.

    This is a continuation of the hitherto existing treaty with the United States, and as they have until now, they are not deploying, but can keep a maximum of 2 soldiers on exercises in Bulgaria, at our bases in the country. This has existed since we were admitted to NATO. This is a continuation of the agreements for 500 years.

    Nice try. But the question is: there are no more soldiers in all of NATO except the American ones, or what?

      You probably do not know that in the Bulgarian army, for a long time, all activities related to public services are performed by civilians on the basis of tenders! Soldiers are engaged only with military technical training! At one time I served in the BNA, then all the time there were soldiers for miles, peeling potatoes, etc.! The military training looked through the fingers! Many of them ended their 2 years of service in the "people's" army without firing a Kalash!

The winds began to blow and the Earth lit up. The corpses of the victims were mutilated by the terrible heat so that they no longer looked like people
