Russian military exercises catalyze the split of the world

67

It is completely incomprehensible to me why most people think that in order to win a war, it is necessary to attack, you need to lose your people when taking some fortified areas, you need to capture some territory, and so on. Somehow we quickly forget some ingenious thoughts, including those of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Second World War.


For political, ideological, ideological disputes, we forget about simple truths that were once already voiced by those who are currently in historical disgraced. Probably, the time today is when people easily change their beliefs to please their own belly. It is good where the trough is larger and deeper. Where peelings are packed prettier.

Where you do not need to get your daily bread. It is enough just to go to the trough and eat, eat, eat. What happens next when you gain weight, cover yourself with a layer of fat, it does not matter. They say they will be taken to paradise, to a meat processing plant. At least no one has returned from there yet. So it’s good there… Probably, you don’t even need to go to the trough. The food itself pours into the mouth ...

Reading materials from the Western press, speeches of some Western politicians, the groans of a "outcast" from a neighboring state about a meeting in Donbass, I suddenly remembered the words of I. Stalin: "If the enemy does not surrender, he is destroyed!" Yes, the Supreme Commander borrowed this phrase from Maxim Gorky. But as to the place, he quoted it.

Just a few words that some need to remember. Remember, first of all, to preserve your own life. Regardless of which side of the confrontation line you are on.

Why does the West get nervous when Russia conducts planned exercises?


What is happening today in relation to the exercises of the Russian army in Western politicians, in the Western media, among our home-grown liberals, is not at all unexpected. Twice a year, exactly with the frequency with which the final exercises of the Russian army are held, a howl rises about Russian aggression, about training to capture some Estonia, Poland or Ukraine.

This is despite the fact that the Ministry of Defense does not hide the plans and timing of the exercises and announces them at the beginning of the next training period. What caused this periodic panic in the West? Is there any real danger from such checks?

I will disappoint the couch peacekeepers: the danger, from the point of view of the West, is indeed there. In the course of the exercises, the troops are working out, by and large, only two variants of combat operations - offensive and defensive. The rest of the questions are being worked out in parallel. In particular, logistics and so on. What are the conditions under which the exercises are held? In conditions close to the theater of operations on which it is supposed to operate during a special period.

So, prepared subunits, units, formations and even formations go out to training grounds imitating the terrain of a potential enemy. If the task of the exercises is an offensive, then the defense ministers and chiefs of the General Staff of the neighboring states are straining. The exercises show all the shortcomings of their defense, including. If defense is practiced, it triggers the same reaction. The military sees what will happen if they are ordered to advance.

But the most important thing is the concentration of trained units and formations. Again, those who have served for at least six months participate in the final exercises. This is not cannon fodder, until you understand what weapon in their hands, they are already soldiers. I will not write about the officer corps. Syria and the Caucasus have seriously "diluted" the officer corps with experienced combat commanders who know the war from the inside.

Can you imagine what would happen if, instead of exercises, a command was issued to start real hostilities? Will the opposing party be able to react quickly to such actions? Is someone able to stop such an offensive or break through such a defense? Here is the task for the NATO generals. So much for the advantage of Russia, which the West itself created by quietly sneaking up to our borders.

We can do what we want on our territory and at the same time make the West nervous. NATO, on the other hand, needs to do a lot of work for approximately the same actions. Both in volume and in time. Russia will always have time to prepare an answer. Only one thing remains - a nuclear missile strike. But even this is fraught with a serious "response", which, given the population density in Europe, will cost millions of lives.

So beautifully conceived, but these Russians


When in February a video of the transfer of weapons and military equipment to Donbass by Ukraine appeared on the Internet, the West was silent.

“This is different. This is the right of the state to move its troops on its territory at its own discretion. "

But as soon as a video with Russian echelons on Russian territory appeared, the "veil from the eyes" of Western politicians fell off. How? Why? It's scary!

Especially a lot of materials have appeared on the Crimea. It's clear. Under active informational pressure from Ukraine and the United States, a man in the West continues to believe in the occupation of Crimea and the desire of the people to return to Ukraine. For an example of the Russophobic insanity of the Western media, I'll take the BBC. Namely, the Russian service of this publication:

“The transfer of troops is taking place against the backdrop of tensions on the border between Russia and Ukraine, where unusually large forces have also been drawn in recent weeks. The situation caused concern on the part of Western countries - in particular, the United States, the European Union and NATO called on Russia to stop building up forces on the border ”.

“As the German newspaper Spiegel reported last week, a large army camp has emerged in the east of the Crimean peninsula. In this case, the publication refers to satellite images available to the publication. According to these data, the camp is located about 30 kilometers from the village of Marfovka in the east of the peninsula. "

“On April 16, the press service of the Southern Military District reported that units of the 58th Army held exercises in Crimea. At the same time, the message said that units of the 58th Army were conducting exercises in cooperation with the forces of the 4th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Southern Military District, the Black Sea fleet and the Caspian Flotilla, and the message said that these exercises are planned, and they check the results of the winter training period for the troops of the Southern Military District. "

There are about a dozen such messages every day. I would like to comment on the message about the 58th Army. Let me remind you that it was this army that "lathered the withers" of the Georgian army in 2008. It was the 58th that humiliated NATO militarily. It turned out that neither equipment, nor weapons, nor instructors can create an army capable of somehow resisting Russia.

To be honest, we have somewhat forgotten about the feat of this army in South Ossetia. But the West remembers. He remembers and considers this army a real danger for "Western democracy". Rumor has it that the participation of these soldiers and officers in the exercises in Crimea largely forced the NATO command to moderate the militant rhetoric.

Most Western university graduates have problems with geography. For school graduates, this is, in general, terra incognita. Therefore, the talk about the impending invasion of Ukraine by armies from the Crimea looks comical. There are no idiots among generals in the Russian army.
To launch an offensive against a neighboring state of the army through a narrow neck in the region of Krasnoperekopsk and Armyansk is the lot of idiots. There are other ways, which are much simpler and more effective with existing layouts. And today's Ukraine is not of interest. Neither as a territory nor as an economic region. Some problems. A wild field at the beginning of its creation ...

Again the Russian sea


It is strange that the Western press is of little interest to what made the NATO generals really sad. I mean the Black Sea. That theater of operations where theoretically Russia could have problems. The straits are controlled by a NATO member state. The Black Sea coast of Russia, without Crimea, is quite vulnerable. What prevents NATO ships from completely blocking and controlling the Russian Black Sea Fleet?

And it was here that the clever strategy of our military leadership, which foresaw a possible deterioration in relations with NATO, came into play. Crimea has truly become a fortress, which it was in the composition of Russia all previous centuries. A ship that somehow enters the Black Sea waters will be immediately escorted and, upon receiving the appropriate command, destroyed with a 100% probability.

Again, to quote some BBC reports:

“On Monday, the press service of the Southern Military District of Russia announced that aviation exercises involving 50 aircraft of the air force aviation, air defense and the Black Sea Fleet. They involve fighters, bombers and attack aircraft.

The message specifies that the aircraft will perform missile launches and bombing at sea targets, flights in adverse weather conditions and at extremely low altitudes above water.

The pilots will also learn to accompany naval strike groups and operate as part of "reconnaissance strike complexes while ensuring security in the Black Sea," the report said.

In addition, Russian attack pilots have already worked out the operational transfer of aircraft to airfields in the Crimea and, conversely, beyond its borders. "

“On April 17, a detachment of ships from the Caspian Flotilla entered the Black Sea through the Kerch Strait. He became subordinate to the command of the Black Sea Fleet. The ships covered 100 kilometers along the rivers and the Volga-Don canal. The detachment includes three artillery and eight landing boats, as well as support vessels.

On April 18, two large landing ships (BDK) - Kaliningrad and Korolev - entered the Black Sea through the Bosphorus. They are part of the Baltic Fleet. Prior to that, on the same day, the BDK of the Northern Fleet of Russia "Alexander Otrakovsky" and "Kondopoga" entered the Black Sea.

On Wednesday, April 14, a large detachment of ships, which also included a large landing ship, left the basing points of the Black Sea Fleet, the press service of the Southern Military District reports, without specifying how many and what landing ships operated as part of the group.

In addition to them, it included the frigate "Admiral Makarov", the small missile ships "Graivoron" and "Vyshny Volochek", the air-cushion missile ship "Samum", the minesweeper "Ivan Golubets". The press service of the Southern Military District reported that they conducted exercises to overcome the minefield. "

Do you get the feeling that only Russians are active in the Black Sea?

Especially when Biden has recalled his ships and canceled their entry into the region?

The Turkish fleet is carrying out some tasks far from the Crimea. I understand that now there are British ships in some heads, which express solidarity to Ukraine. Where are they now? Nope! They may only express it in May. But there is little media coverage of this.

How is Khoja Nasreddin on this issue:

- And do not mourn my head, because in twenty years one of us will surely die - either me, or the emir, or the donkey.

By May, the final checks will be over, and then it will indeed be safe to demonstrate solidarity. Well done British. And they ate the fish and ...

The result?

Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, as members of NATO, Ukraine and Georgia, as shortcomings of the alliance, proudly brushed off the savory spit and pretended that it was most likely the birds to blame. Even the fact that Russia closed the sky over some areas of the Black Sea was swallowed. Everything as usual.

But what Russia is not going to do, at least it didn’t announce it, caused a lot of protests. I'm talking about blocking the passage of civilian ships to the Ukrainian ports of the Azov Sea. Yes, we began to examine the merchants more closely before the passage under the bridge, but there was no talk of a blockade. Yes, now merchants are idle a little longer in front of the bridge, but there are no violations of international laws and rules of navigation.

I understand the confusion of Kiev. It turns out that if you act within the framework of compliance with international treaties and laws, no one "in the world" will help. We can close our eyes to violations of these agreements, we can say that this is different, but we cannot resist the legitimate actions of the opposing side. Especially when this party itself can ask for such violations.

I’m probably a little bit romantic, but it’s nice to realize that the Black Sea, at least a little, is again Russian.

Sharing the world always hurts


What we see every day now in one or another country of the world, those anti-Russian demonstrations, on the one hand, and pro-Russian, on the other, pro-American or anti-American sentiments, is a logical continuation of the restructuring of the entire system of international relations. The world is painfully parting with illusions. The world is again divided into camps.

Opposing camps are being created. The United States is now opposed not by the USSR, but by the PRC and the Russian Federation. The difference in these confrontations is that it is easier to "fight coldly" with one opponent than with two. Especially when these two have not teamed up. But this is a temporary phenomenon. The Americans, with their unyielding and often dastardly policies, themselves are pushing those on the opposite side to union.

Can you imagine the enemy of the United States if China and Russia become real allies?

Returning to where I started this material, we can say that what is happening now on international platforms, how world leaders react to the actions of the West and Russia, is a battle. Probably the most difficult battle, when they win not by the number of soldiers, not by the quantity and quality of equipment and weapons, but by well-prepared, including the military, responses to the numerous challenges of the enemy. When the threat is eliminated by creating in the enemy an understanding of the loss of his position in the event of the beginning of the active phase of the war.

I am far from victorious reports and victorious moods. Fight, even battle, is only a small part of the war. A grain of victory or defeat. Very often, victory turns into a global defeat, and defeat in battle, on the contrary, becomes the basis of a great victory.

So far, only one thing needs to be understood. We begin to live in a different world. Is it good or bad? I dont know.

But what many warned about for a long time happened ...

      But we have changed too. We ceased to show only verbal concern and began to warn about the real consequences, and they were not used to this, moved looking into the eyes of their leader, how could it be that the Russians are talking against something and how dare they say, howled, stirred and hysterical ... Everything is fine, Russia has both the right and the opportunity to silence any sherkhan and tobacco when they start yapping at us strongly.

      The author lives in his own world. The PRC refused any participation in the confrontation with the West. Therefore, the split is only between the West and its allies and the Russian Federation. Moreover, Moscow still drives raw materials to the damned West.
      Therefore, this is the DPRK television, which tells about how the DPRK became the main power in the world. Where the entire world community discusses Kim Jong-un from morning till night. lol

        Welcome.
        I would say differently about China, they do not directly support us and consciously do not participate, but ... in any squabbles between them with the United States, de facto, they pour water into a joint confrontation.
        As an example:
        Three boxers, but one of these three fights measuredly with one, then with the other and picks up one or the other. And the other two are not at enmity with each other and do not sort things out. This means: one camp opposes not a united camp of two, but two other camps.
        Something like this))))

        And my feeling is that China will be firmly tackled in the next 5 years, as soon as their second AUG is formed, and the States will see the reality of the third ... then they will start drowning a real competitor with all their might. The increasing pressure on China is already visible, and it will continue to grow further.

          That's right. The statements of the Americans about a boycott of the Winter Olympics in Beijing, the sending of NATO ships to the shores of China, this is from the same opera.

          Can you tell me who won the most from the collapse of the USSR? I'll answer you myself, well, the EU and the US, yes, but who is in the shadows? Again, I will answer China, who is now the world's smithy, health resort, and so on. That's right, China, it is he who benefits from the collapse of our country, so China, like Turkey, is situational partners and should not be particularly relaxed. It was China that occupied all the former zones of influence from the USSR

        The attitude of the official authorities of the same China towards any country can be assessed by the internal agenda in the media. So in China, the media for domestic consumption always talk about Russia in an exclusively positive way, as well as about the president of Russia. Putin is a very beloved figure there. So this is a very controversial issue. Yes, caution is never superfluous, but in this particular case, it can serve as a brake on a really interesting union.
        In China, there are several acquaintances, some for work, some just often cross the border, our guys .. It is from them that information, not somewhere someone said, such as OBS ... This corresponds to the real state of affairs.

        Russian military exercises catalyze the split of the world

        The catalyst for the split of the world was VOSR 1917. Two economic formations have become antagonists. One gave a future for everyone, the other - for a group of people who call themselves (today) the "golden billion".
        So far, only one thing needs to be understood. We begin to live in a different world. Is it good or bad? I dont know.

        We need to understand one thing, we were pushed into another world and forced to live according to wolf laws. Russia did not accept this change. Moreover, 90% of residents expect a gradual extinction (replacement for cheaper labor. And all these attempts of the West frighten the Russian authorities only because they cannot say for certain that people will go to death for the sake of Rotenberg or some other Deripaska and their billions.

    T.N. the collective West finally realized that Russia is not joking, does not bluff and, if the need arises, will defend its interests by all available methods, not looking back at what they will babble and what sanctions to impose. And it scared them. Therefore, such "concern" on their part, demands (?) For explanations, a direct hint to Ukraine that NATO will not fight for it. Today, the emergence of a large-scale conflict seems to have been delayed. But we'll see what will happen tomorrow.

        If the enemy has built a fortress on the way, you need to go around from the rear to take it without a shot. The adversary is in the rear for a long time, only you do not want to see this. And the world has not been split about what you write. Do not exaggerate. And do not be foolish with the roads and old women. .Gaz, free of charge, now they do not carry out, so by the way.

In addition, Russia has gained sovereignty, it remains only to formalize it at the legislative level, but this is the task of the new Duma. The tricolor no longer corresponds to our status. The need to replace it is ripe, just like other symbols of colonization.

    "... The tricolor, which was approved as a state for Russia on November 01, 1991, consisting of three horizontal stripes (with the upper stripe being white) means that Russia has no right to conduct its sovereign foreign and domestic policy ... ".

      Honestly, I somehow did not think about it. The colors of the flag ... Mmm. If my city has a white flag with a red fortress wall, as it is written in the decree of Empress Catherine "they are pure with their thoughts and they protect Russia from the Kirghiz", then are we also a colony here? Or "is it different"?
      It seems to me that the frequent change of state symbols does not lead to anything good. Those who took the oath back in the USSR at the sound of the Russian anthem still recall the Soviet anthem and the Soviet words of this anthem ... On the one hand, a trifle, but on the other hand, it seems like some kind of gap in the heads of fathers and children turns out

        In heraldry, there is nothing that would not symbolize something. Flags are like military ranks in the army:



        The rank of the Czech Republic is higher than ours. That is why she behaves this way.
        The banner of Slovakia is lower than ours. She is silent.

        As in the army, a lieutenant can become a general, so the state can take its rightful place and the change of the flag is an objective reality. I hope we get the red banner back.

            The most direct. The red banner means the hollow sovereignty of Russia for which I stand up and which is consistently promoted by Ka (Putin). Mowgli (Russia) has already started stripping the striped hide from Sharkhan (West).

              Of course, you can put any value in the color of the banner, but sovereignty is not expressed in this. Sovereignty will be expressed in the fact that in attempts to flay the skin from the unkilled Sherkhan, Mowgli himself did not find himself in the role of prey))))

    The author is right, there are couch peacekeepers, but there are couch warriors. And if we talk about war, then neither one nor the other understand the essence of this drama. Only the military see an ugly naturalism in war; they already have experience. And everything that is being done is aimed at protecting the world.

    And today's Ukraine is not of interest. Neither as a territory nor as an economic region. Some problems. A wild field at the beginning of its creation ...

    I cannot agree with this. Line Mariupol-Nikolaev-Odessa, it will be necessary to pick up the love, sooner or later. Even if you have to let Odessa float freely, following the example of a thread of Monaco.

    Yes, you can win a battle, and even a whole military company, and, as a result, lose the war as a whole. Shining examples of this are Napoleon and Hitler's Germany. Colleagues, nothing has changed, the mechanisms of war are still the same. Read Clausewitz and Comrade Stalin carefully. And, at the same time, Edrikhina-Vann Dam, believe me, is a very useful reading. Under the leadership of Comrade Stalin, the institute of Generals, Patriots-State Figures, Officers and Soldiers, as well as Home Front Workers was created in the USSR (Russia), a self-replenishing community of people serving the interests of the Motherland. And this is our most important strategic reserve, our most important defense advantage.

    The main thing, in my opinion, is at the end of the article.
    We begin to live in a different world. Is it good or bad? I dont know.

    But what many warned about for a long time happened ...

    Regarding the alliance with China ... Optimism should be "moderate to weak", or even vice versa.
    In the open spaces of Zen I read a series of articles about Damansky by a retired border guard officer. Actually, he did not say much that was new, what can I say. But I placed the accents correctly: in China, these events are celebrated, the participants are heroes. At one time we were also awarded, but now (and even then) - bashful silence. Why: a strategic partner! This is the essence of our relations with China.
    Yes, apparently, the unipolar world is crumbling. It's good. But what is the new world of the Russian Federation meeting?

    Can you imagine the enemy of the United States if China and Russia become real allies?

    One of the worst decisions. The union will be clearly unequal, and not in favor of Russia. The choice is worth - to whom to sell with all the guts. I do not want to see Russia as a Chinese vassal, and Russia will not become an independent pole.

    Well, Europe's screeching at our teachings is quite understandable. The troops of the colony must not be more prepared than the troops of the mother country. The worse and farther from the capture areas, the better the Europeans. And they absolutely do not care that they themselves to our camps every month more and more troops of submarines and the exercises of their troops are becoming more, the main thing is that by any means we have fewer of them.

    Russia regularly conducts military exercises.
    And NATO regularly conducts military exercises.
    Whose teachings are more realistic and close to combat?
    I do not know ... recourse

    For example, the Caucasus 2020 exercise did not strike me as realistic.
    Everything is very massive. Volleys from hundreds, thousands of guns and rocket systems,
    thousands of paratroopers. Effective for TV, but hardly realizable on the battlefield.
    Clusters of equipment and people are easy to defeat from the air before battle.
    And cover during the fight.

    NATO usually works out the "building blocks": exercises at the level of companies and battalions.
    It looks wretched - lonely people are running, crawling, but very useful.

    The reality is that today we do not live in a bi- or tri-polar world, as we would like to hope, but in a multipolar world, in which not only states or alliances participate, but also ethnic and religious groups, which, due to their heterogeneity , inconsistencies and lack of control can lead to unpredictable consequences. If earlier it was clear that an approximately equal number of delivered special ammunition is able to keep a finger on the red button, now this is unpredictable.
    There is a hope that the weapon of the last degree of deterrence will not be used, but the fact that an analogue can be made by a student according to instructions on the Internet is a little annoying.
    And then there are new players on the market who are not enough ...
    I believe that the demonstration of the ability to respond to challenges is a timely measure (by the way, it seems, has already made some impression on hotheads).
    This is probably very abstract, but I tried to summarize the content of the article and the comments to it.
    If it's too clever, don't blame me.
    And, in general, it is very pleasant that so many people are not indifferent to what lies ahead ...

    “The average person does not understand that war is a“ continuation of politics, ”and therefore he is limited to the fact that“ the enemy is attacking, ”“ the enemy has invaded my country, ”without examining why the war is being fought, what classes, for what political goals ... For the layman, it is important where the troops are, who is winning now. For a Marxist, it is important why this war is being fought, during which sometimes one or another army can be victorious ...

    If the policy was national liberation, that is, it expressed a mass movement against national oppression, then it arising from such a policy is a national liberation war.

    If the policy was imperialist, that is, it defends the interests of finance capital, plunders and oppresses colonies and foreign countries, then the war following from this policy is an imperialist war.

    How to find the “real essence” of war, how to define it? War is a continuation of politics. It is necessary to study the policy before the war, the policy leading and leading to the war. "

    Most Western university graduates have problems with geography. For school graduates, this is, in general, terra incognita. <...> To launch an offensive against a neighboring state of the army through a narrow neck in the region of Krasnoperekopsk and Armyansk is the lot of idiots.

    Are you aware that there are at least 100 existing roads and a dozen places on the 5 km section besides Armyansk-Krasnoperekopsk, which are probably surmountable with the help of modern technology? In addition, do you know that the entire coast to the west of the Crimea under the control of Ukraine is located 200-250 kilometers from the Crimea? Thus, a threat or an offensive from the Crimea itself is an additional front of 100 kilometers and an additional need for Ukraine to protect about 500 kilometers of the coast from a potential landing.

    it is nice to realize that you are reckoned with in this world, but you need to realize that not in the confrontation of two systems there are not only victories or only defeats. At the moment, Russia is defending itself by all means that are available to it. Unfortunately, the list of these funds is not long, the economy is the basis. But you can use less costly methods. Russia uses them and judging by the squeals of the "partners" at times, it is successful.

    Insanity in general and in politics does not come unexpectedly.
    It is gradually grown in the conditions of the existence of an aimless or, on the contrary, stupidly promoting narrowly selfish expectations.
    When these tendencies coincide in two subjects of existence, it also becomes obsessive, since the behavior of one stimulates the behavior of the other.
    So it happened with Russia and the West.
    The impotence of Russia's foreign policy was determined by the aggressive insanity of the West.
    Well, and then you know when insanity grows stronger.

      I disagree with this statement. In foreign policy, there is no impotence, it is a curve, but it is not impotence. But in the inner, then YES, complete rupture. Putin has been in power for longer than Brezhnev, and the level of household income is steadily falling, along with the quality of goods. But the source of the Insanity of Europe is not in Russia but overseas.
