Military Review

Danish Defense Ministry announced a "Russian threat" in the Arctic and transferred its forces to Greenland

71

The Danish Defense Ministry decided to indirectly appeal to the new American administration. The main topic raised was “Greenland’s security”. Greenland is de jure an administrative territorial unit of Denmark.


The emphasis on the security of Greenland on the part of official Copenhagen was made due to the fact that the previous US President (Donald Trump) announced his readiness to buy this island from Denmark for its further exploitation in the interests of the United States. Then, as you know, an international scandal erupted, during which the Danish authorities announced that they did not intend to trade in their territories. But Trump continued, noting that, in his opinion, "the price of the issue is important."

Now the website of the Danish Ministry of Defense has updated information on which main areas of attention the command pays attention to from the point of view of ensuring the country's security and its interests. First of all, it is indicated that this is the Arctic region and specifically - Greenland.

From the report:

The government will provide stability, security and protection for everyone in the Commonwealth, and will preserve the unity of the Kingdom of Denmark. Copenhagen, the Faroe Islands and Greenland have a special responsibility for security and defense policy in the Arctic and North Atlantic.

In other words, the Biden administration made it clear that Denmark is opposed to the topic of "a possible sale of Greenland". At the same time, representatives of the Danish military department had to touch upon a typical NATO "horror story" about "the growth of Russia's military activity in the Arctic and the need to respond to this threat."

From a message from the Danish Ministry of Defense listing its forces in Greenland:

In February 2021, the government and the country's largest parties entered into a framework agreement to allocate DKK 1,5 billion (about a quarter of a billion dollars) to ensure Arctic security. Arctic Command is headquartered in Greenland's capital Nuuk. The armed forces in the region are personnel at Nord station, which is the northernmost military base in the world (northeastern Greenland), the West air group in Kangerlussuaq (West Greenland), the armed forces guard in Mestersvig (East Greenland), Grönnedal (South- West Greenland) and a connecting element at the Thule base (Northwest Greenland).

So, Denmark makes it clear to the United States: we are ready to additionally fork out in the NATO format and even declare a Russian threat, and you do not raise the "Greenland issue".

Interesting logic: Greenland was offered to be bought from Trump, but the Kingdom's Ministry of Defense still designated the "Russian threat" as the main one. Such a relationship in an alliance ...

    Meanwhile, Estonia declares the occupation of Estonian territory, i.e. threatens the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation. All NATO states (and not only) do not recognize the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation. What are we going to do, Sergei Viktorovich? Maybe it's time to transfer your functions to Sergei Kozhugetovich? Let him figure it out.

        By their unpredictability ... They are afraid to tremble at the knees that at the next exercises, we will accidentally capture Lithuania ... or divide Poland. Adequacy here goes far and has obviously not looked into their brains for a long time.

          Even I can draw easily now. In order to ensure the security of the northern flank of NATO in the form of the security of the Thule airbase in Greenland, which the troops of little Denmark cannot provide. Few? Well then, in order to prevent nuclear weapons from falling into the hands of terrorists! In the same place, the Yankees lost their bonbu, and never found it. That's all, declare. that terrorists are massively looking for it there, and maybe even found it - that's all, it is urgently necessary to transfer Greenland to the USA in order to restore order there! And democracy for all Eskimos and their Eskimos!

    Or is it a kind of hazing, let me serve for a couple of years. But there are nuances. How to deal with the gender component. I don't even know what to call them so as not to run into lawsuits. In short. This is what letting go?

      I think that with a beard it is stupidly warmer, and somehow more vikingist.
      The most powerful Vikings were Danish. The Swedes are still here and there, but the Norwegians were not suitable for Danes in those old days.

    Well, yes, the Danes see the Russian threat, but they don't see that Trump almost bought Greenland. And the threat here is no longer from Russia, but from the United States.

    If you dig a little in recent history, you will notice that the United States has been interested in Greenland for a long time. Back in 1867, US Secretary of State William Seward intended to conclude an agreement with Denmark on the sale and purchase of a huge island. The deal did not burn out. Washington's second attempt to buy Greenland for $ 100 million in gold, made by President Harry Truman in 1946, also failed.
