"More than it was": NATO counted "tens of thousands" of Russian military near the border of Ukraine

72

Russia maintains a significant military force on the Ukrainian border. Despite the withdrawal of troops announced by Moscow, there are "tens of thousands" of Russian servicemen near Ukraine. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.


The alliance "discovered" Russian troops "near Ukraine" and counted "tens of thousands" of Russian troops. According to the NATO Secretary General, there are more of them than there were before the exacerbation of the situation, despite the fact that some of the troops were sent to the places of deployment.

Also, according to Stoltenberg, Russian troops are not only "near Ukraine", but also "on the territory of Ukraine", meaning that Crimea is Ukrainian territory. The head of the alliance said about "concern" about this fact and promised to discuss Russia's actions at the summit of NATO defense ministers.

Thus, NATO is once again poking its nose where it should not, announcing the deployment of Russian troops on Russian territory, which, in their opinion, is a threat to Ukraine. Does the deployment of NATO troops near the borders of Russia threaten anyone? Or is it in the order of things?

As the Ministry of Defense said earlier, Russia has deployed, is deploying and will deploy its troops on its territory, wherever it needs, and redeploy based on the current situation. And let NATO continue to express their "concern".

        The EU foreign policy service has corrected the statement of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, who on Monday claimed the deployment of 150 thousand Russian troops near the border with Ukraine. In the transcript of his press conference after the meeting of the EU Council at the level of foreign ministers, published on the website of the EU diplomatic service, this number was changed to 100 thousand https://tass.ru/mezhdunarodnaya-panorama/11193339

          There were 150 thousand, the next day 100 thousand. In one day, the loss of the Russian army half a hundred thousand people. It's time, it's time for NATO to celebrate a complete and unconditional victory. There is already a precedent. Someone Poroshenko said about 200 thousand Russian military in Donbass. Apparently moved the day before. In the morning, waking up and moving away from yesterday, he announced 20 thousand. This is how he personally destroyed 120 thousand Pskov paratroopers in one night.

Moscow announced the completion of the inspection of troops in the Southern and Western military districts and their return to their places of permanent deployment, as well as the continuation of the preparation of part of the troops of the central district for the Zapad 21 exercises at the Pogonovo training ground in the Voronezh region. Stoltenberg is lying as always.

    Listen !!! I think I understand! I understand why they are so worried! They THINK that there is still something between Russia and Ukraine! And the troops of the Russian Federation approached the borders of Ukraine, crossing these ocean, endless forests, deserts, steppes, mountains (optional) between our borders !! And now they are sitting there, threatening!
    How to compare the maps from THEIR headquarters with the global ones, otherwise it seems that geography was not taught at all in the NATO leadership.

    How long will we rassusolate with this NATO? the only question is, why did we liberate Europe from the Nazis? "WE HAVE FREED THEM, AND THEY WILL NEVER FORGIVE THIS TO US," - everyone knows these words, immediately after the capture of Berlin, said by the great commander Georgy Zhukov to the great commander Konstantin Rokossovsky. All the liberated lands must be left under the jurisdiction of Russia in its composition, there would be no Europe now, and therefore no NATO. only Russia.

    Quote: Sydor Amenpospestovich
    Russia maintains a significant military force on the Ukrainian border. Despite the withdrawal of troops announced by Moscow, there are "tens of thousands" of Russian servicemen near Ukraine. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

    No, definitely Western civilization originates in Ukraine.

    The beginning takes ... And at such a pace, it may suddenly end there!

    Oh, our grandfathers did not finish them off. They were humane and noble! Soon again, the anniversary of the events, and there in the west they preferred to forget everything and go on the rampage again. But we remember soldier

    Moreover, the border of Ukraine begins in Siberia. After all, both there and there refer to the territory on "in".
