Finnish intelligence: Russia is ready to fight in Europe

65

The reason for the growing tension on the European continent is the “renaissance of power politics”. This is the opinion of the military intelligence of Finland.


This is stated in her public report, first published by the Finnish Ministry of Defense.

Our country occupies a prominent place in the published voluminous document. It says that Russia is capable and ready to fight in Europe, and the Kremlin can use its armed forces in this region if it needs it. Finnish intelligence officers are especially concerned about the growing tension in the Baltic, the strategic importance of which is growing, both for Russia and for NATO.

Helsinki notes that both the Russian Federation and the North Atlantic Alliance are deploying significant forces near Finland, equipped with the most modern high-tech weapons... Both sides have noticeably increased their combat readiness and are able to demonstrate their capabilities in practice at any time.

The report argues that Russia is building up its military power by all means, including by conducting large-scale exercises with the participation of all branches of the military.

Earlier, the head of the Russian Defense Ministry, Sergei Shoigu, said that the Russian Armed Forces need to prepare for an option in which the major military exercises of NATO Defender Europe could follow an "unfavorable scenario" for our country. He stated that the army must be able to respond quickly to any challenge.

      Yes, they do not say anything new or incorrect.
      Not a word about the fact that Russia is ready to START to fight. All about the willingness to fight in principle. That we will not scatter at the first shot.

        And according to our actions in Syria, it is not clear that the Russians are ready to fight and die for their homeland? The guys preferred to blow themselves up with grenades along with the barmaley or call fire on themselves than surrender.

          Well, our neighbors, who love sauna and good vodka, need to write something about something. They regularly write that we are ready. You just need a loud headline.

            In 1944, they got off too lightly. These Euro-fascists Finns never answered for the blockade of Leningrad. If they open their mouths, we will tear a heating pad like a tuzik.

              I can't find now where, but I met Old that the Finns could enter Leningrad a couple of times in their blockade area, but they did not budge .. And the Germans were not allowed. I will not vouch for the reliability, but the fact that Finland "got off lightly" after 45 and did not become socialist is suggestive ..

                Yeah, and the Finns supplied food to Leningrad, and our prisoners of war were kept not in concentration camps, but in sanatoriums with enhanced nutrition. Finns = fascists.

            So the Finnish citizens would only like that instead of Nord Stream 2, we would build a water pipeline to Finland ... :)) They don't seem to boast of their uniqueness like the United States or Ukraine, they just understand that they are nothing more than a territory for NATO military operations at what at their own expense.

        Exactly .!!! Now it is called "democracy" .. Do they want NATO?
        In general, I am surprised how Stalin forgave them, because they blocked Leningrad with the Germans .. And the Soviet troops did not storm them! But they were still Nazi bedding .. The mystery of history!

          There is no "puzzle".

          Finam very very favored by the British, and personally W. Churchill, therefore Stalin was forced not to punish these "victims of Soviet aggression" as it should have done so as not to exacerbate the already existing disagreements in the anti-Hitler coalition ahead of time.

          GREAT POLICY ...

            well, they still merged in time-
            the fact that in 1944 Finland made a separate peace with the Soviet Union and even managed to fight the Germans for a month led to the fact that in Nuremberg the crimes of the Finns in the SS were not remembered.

    So yes, we are hinting, we are hinting ... Subtly like this: "Do not stop in time - you will hit your ears, definitely!"
    And even the so-called "neutrals" when using tactical nuclear weapons, not to mention a full-scale nuclear war, will not sit out behind the fence, maybe they will die out a little longer.

    It says that Russia is capable and ready to fight in Europe, and the Kremlin can use its armed forces in this region if it needs it.

    Exactly that "if required". Otherwise, why fence a vegetable garden? request

    Finns would remember that Russia gave them statehood, breaking the Swedes and their chubaty Mazeppians near Poltava. And Ukrainians should remember where Poltava came from.

    We have a lot to do at home. They will not calm down in any way, they all frighten the European buyer with Russia. Better deal with migrants, otherwise soon there will be not the European Union, but the Euro-caliphate.

    Admins have you already got this garbage to post? Nothing more?
    It says that Russia is capable and ready to fight in Europe, and the Kremlin can use its armed forces in this region if it needs it.
    what is "maybe" if you need it and maybe, but maybe not. Can't they? What an idiotic expression? The logic is out of order.

    The reason for the growing tension on the European continent is the “renaissance of power politics”.

    Such a policy began in the distant 99th ... some kind of belated reaction of the Finns ... to what is happening in Europe ...
    Helsinki notes that both the Russian Federation and the North Atlantic Alliance are deploying significant forces near Finland, equipped with the most modern high-tech weapons.

    How close? For the entire Baltic region, the duty link of NATO fighters (now there seems to be "macaroni" on the F-35), in the North of Norway, a line of URs with HV and missile defense radar and RTR of NATO countries ...
    There is nothing to say about the Russian Federation .... one MSBR. near Vyborg (6th OA, the weakest OA in the RF Ground 2 MRBR.), two MRBR. (Arctic) on the Kola Peninsula as part of the 14th AK BS KSF ....
    On the territory of Karelia, in general, the Russian Federation has no combined-arms formations ...
    Meanwhile, the Finnish Army has one armored personnel carrier. on tanks "Leopard-2", while the Russian Federation has nothing like that in the entire North-West ...
    In general, the last five years, the Finns have seriously taken up the rearmament of their armed forces, although there are still a lot of Soviet weapons, although most of them are now in storage ...

    - "The Kremlin can use its Armed forces in this region, if it needs it" - whoever "asks" strongly will always get it !!! NATO needs to return to the framework for which it was created ..
