Swedish expert: In case of war, Russian Kaliningrad can be shot through with artillery from Lithuania and Poland

88

A wave of publications related to the allegedly growing threat from Russia continues to manifest itself in the Western press. The columnist for the Swedish publication Svenska Dagbladet, Junas Gumesson, writes that “the editorial office received a call from a phone number that was not identified and told about a closed seminar held in the country's parliament”.


According to the journalist, the "unknown number" turned out to be the telephone of the acting head of intelligence in Sweden, Daniel Olsson.

Sweden's Chief Intelligence Officer:

In 2020, military activity towards Sweden and the Baltic countries became the largest since the end of the Cold War. According to our estimates, in the event of a war, Russia will have an advantage in the region over NATO and its allies, at least at the first stage. We see that the main goal of Russia is to create obstacles for the Americans to be able to transfer their large forces to the region in the event of the outbreak of hostilities.

The Swedish columnist, meanwhile, reminds his readers that Sweden is not a NATO member. According to him, this leads to the fact that “there are no security guarantees for Sweden.

In the Swedish press:

The only hope for Sweden in the event of a war is that the Americans will come to the rescue. But the Russians, as Daniel Ohlsson said, are trying to prevent this.

The publication indicates that Russia is building up a powerful group of troops in the western direction - in the Kaliningrad region. According to the observer, on the one hand, this is the most vulnerable region of Russia, since it is surrounded by the territories of other states (NATO countries), on the other hand, modern weapons and a large military group are deployed in the Kaliningrad region.

Fredrik Westerlund, representing the Stockholm Institute for Defense Research, calls Kaliningrad part of Russia's forward shield "along with Crimea and Transnistria, where Russian troops are stationed."

Swedish defense and security expert:

Still, in case of war, it will be difficult for the Russians to defend Kaliningrad. For example, from the territory of Lithuania and Poland, it can be shot through with artillery.

According to Westerlund, "Kaliningrad is highly valued in Russia, and its loss would be a great loss for the regime."

As you can see, the West is increasingly discussing the possibility of a major war in Europe with the participation of the American military and attacks on Russian territories.

                  I see all such Western revelations as follows:
                  Big good-natured Russia in the form of a bear in earflaps and with a balalaika sits and looks calmly at Europe. And in Europe, they rage, the European countries-dogs jump, bark and bark at Russia, invent different differences, get scared of their own inventions, become embittered, faint, jump up, jump again ... And Russia sits calmly and looks. smile

      Swedish defense and security expert


      Are "Swedish experts" aware that the Russians are "unpredictable" and capable of, at first glance, "adventures"?

      At dawn on March 7, 1809, the sweet sleep of the inhabitants of the Swedish capital was interrupted by the terrible news: "Russian Cossacks at the gates!"

      Not only for Stockholm inhabitants, but also for the royal court of Sweden, it was like a bolt from the blue. Of course, everyone knew that for a year now their kingdom had been in a state of war with the eternal eastern rival - the Russian Empire; but the war was somewhere far away, sluggishly splashing out with local battles on the swampy wooded plains of Finland ... So where did the Russian patrols come from under the walls of Stockholm, why did Russian field artillery rumble dangerously close to the residence of the Vaza dynasty? Swedish soldiers, the victorious Russian "hurray" rolled towards Stockholm with a shaft of gray greatcoats and steel bristles of triangular bayonets? After all, the Gulf of Bothnia, which separates the Swedish coast from Russia, is reliably bound by ice, and Russian ships physically could not pass through it and land troops!
      Panic engulfed the Swedish capital with the speed of a fire. In a terrible bustle, the inhabitants packed the most valuable things and left the city, the city militia (which had not gone on a campaign since the time of Charles XII) hastily stood under arms and prepared for defense. To top it all off, a conspiracy rapidly matured in the court environment and King Gustav IV, who allowed the enemy to the capital of Sweden, was deposed. The old soldier Duke of Zyungermanland (Charles XIII) who came to power soberly assessed the chances of keeping the capital as "tending to zero" and hastened to send envoys to the Russian commander Barclay de Tolly with a request for an armistice. The peace treaty signed between Russia and Sweden in 1809 brought the whole of Finland and the strategically important Aland Islands to our country.

      So where did the Russian troops so suddenly appear at the gates of Stockholm, which abruptly changed the course of the war in our favor?

      "The crossing on the ice was a brilliant success and can justly be considered one of the most glorious pages of our military history," wrote the famous historian of the Russian Army A. A. Kersnovsky about this brilliant operation.

      Above the icy plain of the frozen Gulf of Bothnia, the names of the future heroes of the Patriotic War of 1812, Mikhail Barclay de Tolly, Peter Bagration, and the names of the regiments that later became famous on the Borodino field and at the Berezino were brightly flashed - those were the terrible lightning flashes of Russian glory in the Twelfth year ...

      A small war is needed. Then Russia can take the Suval region and build a railway and highway directly to Kaliningrad. At the same time, the Baltic region will lose importance as a springboard for offensive and provocations from NATO. History repeats itself - in the fortieth year they moved the border with Finland and saved Leningrad .How many kilometers from Estonia to St. Petersburg? There are already three military airfields on the territory of the Baltic States, up to almost 40 thousand personnel with NATO equipment. Is it time to organize the Leningrad Front?

    Another quote from the "expert" article:
    "With the current range of Iskander ground systems (500 kilometers), the Russian military can hit targets in Sweden only from Kaliningrad. You cannot really reach Sweden from the rest of the Russian territories, except perhaps to the very north, and even then it is not very convenient," because Finland is between us.

    - not to mention the Strategic Missile Forces, it is not clear why he "forgot" about the same "Caliber".
    Not only does the entire article scare readers with the danger of Russia ascribed to them, it also at the same time assures that, in fact, these lovers of shooting through the territory of Russia are safe.
    And so the whole article is a set of idiotic clichés, from doctrines, friendship with Belarus to the obligatory mention of Ukraine.

      The paper on which it is written about the neutrality of Sweden is suitable for wrapping fish or whites. The entire Swedish military-industrial complex works to the west. The Swedish Navy is not looking for NATO ships and submarines, but ours. And it participates in maneuvers with NATO. Everyone knows about the Second World War.

        Right. Sweden allowed significant deviations from neutrality in favor of Germany, supplied the Germans with strategically important resources and allowed the transit of German troops through its territory. And in the Swedish society itself there were strong sympathies for the German Nazis and connections with them. For example, Anni-Fried Lingstad, a member of the famous ABBA group, is the daughter of a German SS soldier who fought as part of the occupation forces in Norway.

        Yet Sweden was more neutral than belligerent. This is why Sweden has the highest percentage of high-tech companies per capita. More than Japan! Yes, Sweden has a very powerful military-industrial complex, supplies the West with weapons, engines and electronics, and has an aviation and nuclear industry.

        But she was able to create all this precisely because she does not fight herself. And it is not exposed to military defeat, economic ruin and demographic losses.

        If the Swedes want this three-hundred-year-old idyll to end and turn their country into a target, let them go to NATO.

    The only hope for Sweden in the event of a war is that the Americans will come to the rescue.

    It's time to officially call the Western governments hostile to Russia - "regimes." Regimes in Poland, Lithuania, etc. And immediately impose sanctions against the entire composition of their leadership.

    Well yes. And Russia will calmly watch this shelling. fool
    This expert has what's in his head?
    "We will hit the control centers" - it seems Putin said so.
    And the control centers of both Poland and Lithuania are within the reach of our weapons, even non-nuclear ones. And we'll get to the Swedes if they jerk.

    As a resident of Kaliningrad, it is clear to me that we are more of a Brest fortress, designed to delay and hold enemy forces than a bridgehead for an offensive. But even if there was no war ...

      In the Kaliningrad region, it would be logical to deploy some of the Bal, Iskander,
      S-400 in mines,
      By and large, to think about the possibility of storing, transporting and launching large missiles from a transport launcher in wartime, that is, in conditions of shelling, the threat of shelling, an air raid, etc. correct large missiles should be stored and launched from containers scattered on the ground under snow, under bushes with fences in ditches, of course, before launching, the container must independently stand up for them using a mortar method to trigger the launch ..

    Are you so tired of living that you decided to fight with Russia?
    And then where will you run when your country becomes uninhabitable? lol

      • • Honestly, I sometimes feel ashamed when I hear the speeches of some especially zealous commanders of ships, who grabbed the "beep" microphone of the five-kilowatt broadcast on the upper deck. Every word they have is vile swearing. Well, just like little children.

    For example, from the territory of Lithuania and Poland, it can be shot through with artillery.
    It's just that everything that can move should at this moment move, walk and swim. And for any shelling - alaverds with a flap. So that a dead zone is formed, from which shelling of the Kaliningrad region is possible. This is the case for POINTS and CBTs.

    Not correct "the meaning of the article is expanded". "The Kaliningrad region is geographically integrated into Europe and allows Russia to control the water area of ​​the southern Baltic Sea and all communications of the rockade and mainline type in the deployment zone to a depth exceeding the meaning of effective logistics. flanks to strike. At the same time, the importance of the KO for the Russian Federation is such that any aggravation on its borders can lead to catastrophic consequences. "

    It would be better for these western rats not to open their mouths in the direction of Russia either to Kaliningrad or to the Crimea or to other pieces. This war will not be the "regime", but the country and the people, there will be no mercy for NATO members or their allies.

    Russia will not watch how the artillery of Poland or Lithuania shoots at Kaliningrad, Russia, in the event of a war, will inflict a devastating nuclear strike, including a nuclear strike against Poland and Lithuania and Sweden, and against everyone else who encroaches on our country.

    There will even be nowhere for the American ships to land for the landing, we will all turn to ashes and ruins, just take the risk of arranging for us Foreign intervention once again you will learn the real meaning of the word "War".

    It's just that the Swedish "expert" has forgotten that Poland and Lithuania are being shot "through and through" themselves! From Kaliningrad and not only ...

    You know, namesake. I read all the posts and some kind of ambivalence. All of them have a state of euphoria (I wanted to write indifference, more precisely, an analogue word). Everyone seems to be writing everything correctly. But banter, recollection of the events of 70-80 years ago or the times of the Battle of Poltava is good. As well as the belief that the entire Baltic States and Poland are under fire and these countries will be "glazed". And comparing Kaliningrad with Crimea. But the Crimea is actually an unsinkable aircraft carrier, capable of kicking one place to many. And Kaliningrad ...
    Whether we like this Swedish expert's statement or not, he is essentially right. In the event of a conflict, even non-nuclear Kaliningrad becomes a kamikaze region. If only because of the way this Swedish expert wrote, THE ARTILLERY SHOOTS FROM TWO SIDES. And as you yourself understand, artillery is not a missile system. Hundreds of rounds per barrel - and the losses will be significant. Yes, a response will arrive, but alas, this bridgehead will be lost by us (in the event of a non-nuclear conflict). In the nuclear case, the "glazing" will affect not only the Baltic states, Poland and Sweden, but also the territory of Kaliningrad.
    Comparing it with Crimea is nonsense. We can transport any amount of weapons and equipment to Crimea without much effort. Kaliningrad ... The logistics there are such that in the event of a conflict, it is unlikely that something can be delivered there urgently.
    My friend stayed there for 2 contracts. Even in peacetime, it becomes a question of full growth to enter and leave the region. There are only three such options (for people)
    1. Leave Kaliningrad via the Baltics by train. True, the servicemen are forced to not even get out of the car during such a trip. Ride like Vladimir Ilyich from Germany to revolutionary Russia
    2. Fly by plane. Fast but expensive.
    3. By ferries or other vessels.
    In the event of even the beginning of a conflict, these paths will either be blocked or be fraught with difficulties ...
    So the question raised by the Swedish expert is not so stupid ...

    - not to mention the Strategic Missile Forces, it is not clear why he "forgot" about the same "Caliber".

    It's not worth making another "wunderwaffe" out of "Caliber". A subsonic cruise missile, and not in the number of thousands of units (how many launching "Calibers" in the Baltic Sea ???) - the same Sweden will quite possibly shoot down all launched "Calibers"

    Then in Poland and Latvia and Sweden there will be a glass desert with radiation of several hundred years.

    Alas, Kaliningrad and part of the territory of Russia will also be glass desert

    S-400 in mines,

    Has Iskander ever fired from a container at least once in its entire existence?
    Can Balls be launched vertically?
    The S-400 in the mines is very creative. But where will the radars be: also in the mines?

    Quote: agond
    The most correct thing is that large missiles should be stored and launched from containers scattered on the ground under the snow, under bushes with fences in ditches, of course, before launch, the container must independently stand up for them to launch the launch using a mortar method ..

    Under the snow TPK? Sorry, dear, but Kaliningrad is not Siberia with many meters of snow. Under bushes, fences, in ditches ... Add also that such containers can be placed in the basements of residential buildings or in kitchens ... Then, without any commands, stand upright and launch your rocket yourself. And will the container enter the flight task into the rocket itself ?? BREDYATINA

    For some reason, about the shooting from Lithuania and other preoccupied people, I remembered an anecdote:
    "...
    A cool cowboy bursts into the room, spurs ring, a hefty “Colt” in his hand, and starts firing at the bar like a wound. Shattered bottles and glasses on the bar. All in shards. A cigar was knocked out of his mouth by an elderly cowboy, but he still calmly watches the young one. Young with a cry "Remember everyone - my name is Bob!" made the last well-aimed shot, firing at the wick by the candle.

    An elderly cowboy slowly got up and so in a roll, barely moving his legs, went up to him ... It is clear that every step is given to him with great effort. He took a gun from the hands of a young cowboy and carefully examined it:

    - Hmmm ... We cut the fly, son. Your Colt has too big a front sight, it is better to cut it off ... Once upon a time, a long time ago, I was the same as you - nimble and well-aimed. Just like you, I burst into a saloon where elderly cowboys were sitting and shot all the bottles. I had exactly the same 9-gauge Colt with a big front sight, son. And I also shot accurately, no worse than you.

    But when I ran out of ammo, three cowboys came up to me, shoved my hefty Colt up my ass, and turned it over there several times. So, son, listen to my advice,

    they’ve slept a fly! They slept a fly, son! ..
    ..."
    Better to let them saw the cannon, they can at least be handed over for scrap
