Provocative exercises of the Brazilian army. Russian military on the Venezuelan border?

25

Как сообщает Brazilian and Argentine press, in the period from 8 to 22 September in the Brazilian state of Amazonas bordering Venezuela (about 300 km from Manaus) military exercises were held with the participation of 3600 Brazilian troops. In the exercise, codenamed "Operation Amazonia", a situation was worked out in which the conditional "red" country invaded the conditional "blue" country and it was necessary to expel the invaders. The exercises used cars, the Astros Mk6 missile system and army artillery (cannons, machine guns, Oto Melara howitzers and 60, 81 and 120 mm mortars), as well as special vehicles and trucks.


Provocative exercises of the Brazilian army. Russian military on the Venezuelan border?

The Amazon military command said 20 missiles were fired. The goal was to "neutralize the base of the opposing army." The range of the missile launchers used was 80 km, but the army leadership says it is working on the development of missile launchers with a range of 300 km.

The rocket firing was watched by the Brazilian Defense Minister and the Army Commander. The press reported that the scale of the military exercises, which cost the budget more than one and a half million dollars, was unprecedented: even during the military dictatorship, war games were conducted on a smaller scale.

It is noteworthy that the simulation of the war with Venezuela coincided in time with a visit to the Amazon, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (September 18), during which he uttered the scandalous phrase "We must get him out of there", referring to President Maduro.

The visit to Brazil was part of Pompeo's Latin American tour, during which he visited countries bordering Venezuela and recognizing the self-proclaimed President of Venezuela Juan Guaido.

Brazil's Ministry of Defense has published several videos about Operation Amazonia:




October 19 Argentine edition Infobae reportedthat concerned about such a large-scale exercise in neighboring Brazil, Venezuela has strengthened its military presence in the border areas, where an additional contingent of Venezuelan and Russian military has arrived.

The publication claims that these photographs depict not only Venezuelans, but also Russians in Venezuelan military uniforms:




A video has also been published, which, according to Infobae, captures the Russian military who arrived on October 9 in the Bolivar state bordering Brazil:


The publication publishes the opinions of local residents, who report that, together with the Russians,

“... a commission has arrived with representatives of the General Directorate of Military Counterintelligence (Dgcim), but it keeps its presence secret. They seem to really believe that there will be a military invasion on this border ... They (the Russians) walking around the city are very mysterious, but everyone here knows who they are from the day they arrived at the airport. Of course, this is very scary, because we do not know when and what can happen. "

It is reported that "now the Russian and Venezuelan military are conducting exercises (shooting) at the border in anticipation of aggression from Brazil."

It remains to be hoped that the next aggravation on the border is just a consequence of dangerous political games and is not a harbinger October surprise President Trump's blitzkrieg in Venezuela.

      The main effect is produced.
      And it doesn't matter whether there were Russians or not.

        Provocative exercises of the Brazilian army. Russian military on the Venezuelan border?

        Interesting things are happening in that region. You can even say revolutionary, confirming the words of the famous song: "The revolution has a beginning, the revolution has no end"

        In recent elections, Bolivia's new president, Luis Arce, was elected and immediately announced that, upon taking office, he would restore good relations with Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Russia and China.
        Relations with Mexico and Argentina, which helped Evo Morales in his exile, will also be strengthened. A strengthening of relations with Peru was also announced.
        Bolivia's pro-American approach to foreign policy will be done away with. Bolivia will completely change its approaches in the international arena - what happened after the overthrow of Evo Morales will be done away with.

        And he very subtly hinted that the Americans, with their claims to the richest strategic reserves of lithium, have nothing to catch.
        They will be developed by the Bolivians themselves together with Russia and China.

          In Latin America, the left is primarily not "socialism", but independence from the United States. In the modern world, for the sake of such independence, it is necessary to be friends with Russia or China (or better with both).

            To begin with, let (countries) rally among themselves so that scenarios like the overthrow of Morales are no longer repeated.

    It was all over on September 22.
    How is the Venezuelan motorized infantry with our mysterious specialists going to cope with the "Astros Mk6 missile system and army artillery (cannons, machine guns, Oto Melara howitzers and mortars of 60, 81 and 120 mm calibers)", shmaging from 80 to 300 km?

            With a possible confrontation with Brazil, these S-300s will obviously not be superfluous. At least not worse than the local Brazilian ASNROS.

    Why is Maduro worse than Assad? Can we help Venezuelan brothers weak?
    For one thing, to designate the advancement closer to the US borders. Suddenly they get scared, they pile into their trousers and change their minds to go to Poland on a regular basis. wassat

      Why not ? We can both officially (on the basis of agreements on military cooperation) help, and secretly (as in Vietnam). NATO fighters do not really hide themselves in Eastern Europe, so why should we shake things up?

      It is certainly good to designate the advancement, but the trousers (head pants) are already full of their own (internal and near-border) problems. Some other time, not with this chief shrine and Co. ...
