The timing of the formation of a new motorized rifle division in the Kaliningrad region

48

The Ministry of Defense continues to strengthen the military grouping in the Kaliningrad region. A new motorized rifle division will be deployed in the region by autumn.


The Russian Ministry of Defense is deploying a new 18th Guards Motorized Rifle Division on the territory of the Russian enclave. Reportedly "News" With reference to sources in the military department, the staffing and rearmament of the new formation will be completed by the fall of this year.

According to reports, the new division is being formed on the basis of the former 79th Guards Motorized Rifle Brigade. First, the 79th motorized rifle regiment was deployed on the basis of the brigade, to which separate communications, reconnaissance and engineer battalions were added. Then the newly formed motorized rifle regiments of the 275th and 280th, as well as 11 tank regiment.

The new division will strengthen the 11th Army Corps of the Baltic fleet... Its formation was a response to NATO exercises near the Russian borders, especially since the Kaliningrad region is surrounded by countries that are not friendly to Russia. Both in Lithuania and in Poland, most of all they shout about the "Russian threat" and invite American troops to their territories.

No matter what Washington and Brussels may say, the West will not leave the Russian borders, continuing to accuse Moscow of building up its military power at the "NATO borders." At least a statement of this kind has already sounded from the mouths of NATO functionaries. Therefore, Russia needs to strengthen its positions, and the formation of a new division in the westernmost region will help revive the "Kaliningrad kulak" capable of neutralizing the threat posed by NATO.

    This means that the threat from NATO is real and they are preparing for it.

      Now another hysteria will begin ... But the division is not enough, you need two combined arms and one tank ... So that immediately after the screeching from the windows of the headquarters of the North Atlantic Alliance - "The Russians are coming!", A massive general fall began. And in general, the death of especially frostbitten Central Europeans on the paving stones of the squares of Warsaw, Tallinn, Vilnius, Kiev, etc. welcome! laughing

        I agree ! Enough to pursue politics, oh, how not to offend or frighten anyone ..
        I remember the article, the Poles boasted that they could now shoot right through the Kaliningrad region ... Let them try now ..
        And a tank fist would not have interfered there, I am sure that some "rear-wheel drive soldiers" would have immediately quieted down ..

            Scales, I'm sorry. There was no tank grouping, even if you look at the composition of the troops in the GSVG - combined-arms armies prevailed, and in the tank armies there were 50-50 infantry and tanks. Something flattened you out from western propaganda laughing Perhaps what you retold goes back to the time when the 10th Guards Ural-Lvov Volunteer Tank Division was stationed in Krampnitsa, which strained West Berlin, but it was withdrawn back in the early 80s.

                My friend, what are you talking about? When the marked one declared the withdrawal of troops and the "unification" of Germany, I left the party. Everything would be so, damn it! But the people were just happy to have a chance to snatch at least something in Germany in the end. And one regiment commander, I remember, even moved in his UAZ to the Federal Republic of Germany, taking with him an ATGM from his tank. It's ridiculous to discuss the number of tanks, isn't it?

                    Well, it wasn't. Have you seen the composition of the Group at the beginning of the 90s? Where is the tank group there? And before the tanks were not very much, although a little more. And so any combined-arms army in the desired area was able to form a tank grouping from its TD and tank regiments of the MSD - almost 2 TDs will be released. But this does not mean that there was a certain tank group in the GSVG, it was a combined-arms group, but so there were a lot of troops, then there were a lot of tanks. But all of them are part of their units and formations, from where no one would have pulled them to create a certain separate tank grouping. The cherry on top of the GSVG cake was, rather, the OTRK brigades, which each division had and had special products in hand, so to speak. But not tanks. They were like everywhere else - according to the staffing table.

              Most of all, West Berlin was strained by the Berlin brigade with three separate tank battalions of five tanks in each tank platoon plus 10 detachments, 6 guards. Msd (Bernau), 35 guards. Msd (Olympischesdorf) .32 Msd (Uterbog), in short, the entire 20 OA with headquarters in Eberswalde was entirely imprisoned in West Berlin

      The Russian Ministry of Defense is deploying on the territory of the Russian enclave the new 18th Guards Motorized Rifle Division.

      Judging by the style, the author is a citizen of Estonia or Poland. But I am inclined to believe that the author does not understand a little the meaning of the concepts "enclave" - ​​"exclave".

      We sent the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) long ago.
      On July 13, 2007, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the Decree “On the Suspension by the Russian Federation of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe and Related International Treaties” [1].

      On March 10, 2015, the Russian Federation announced the suspension of its participation in the meetings of the Joint Consultative Group on the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe. Thus, as stated in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, the suspension of the CFE Treaty announced by Russia in 2007 became complete [2]. At the same time, Russia formally remains a party to the Treaty

    the formation of a new division in the westernmost region will make it possible to revive the "Kaliningrad kulak" capable of neutralizing the threat posed by NATO.

    However, the Kaliningrad region is territorially extremely small, has no connection with the main territory of Russia and is surrounded by NATO member states. This means that in the event of real hostilities, the troops will be deprived of the opportunity to maneuver, in fact, they will be deprived of their rear services, and supply will be extremely complicated. In addition, most likely it will not be possible to evacuate the civilian population ... So it turns out that the group in the Kaliningrad region is, at best, a "fighting fist" of one, moreover, the first strike. And then - a heroic death surrounded by superior enemy forces. Or am I misunderstanding something?

    In the context of creating new units in our Armed Forces, I am concerned that the total number of military personnel is not increasing. Those. like new divisions and armies are being created everywhere, but the number of troops does not change. How is this possible? Is it real to create new divisions, or "rearrangement of terms" from which the amount does not change. I do not see indicating to the President about the increase in the staffing of the Ministry of Defense.

        This information is published regularly. The maximum number of the Russian Armed Forces is established by a presidential decree.
        By presidential decree, Vladimir Putin reduced the size of the Russian Armed Forces by almost 1 people from January 2018, 293, while the number of servicemen did not change. The staff of the Russian Armed Forces is now 1 people, of which 902 are military personnel, the rest of them are civilian personnel.
