Baltic Fleet Commander: American destroyers are in the region on a permanent basis


American warships do not only enter the Black Sea, patrolling the southern borders of Russia; American destroyers are on constant combat duty in the Baltic and North Seas. The commander of the Baltic fleet Admiral Alexander Nosatov.

According to Nosatov, there are two permanent naval groups from the joint NATO forces, with up to 15 ships each, operating in the region. They are on alert in the Baltic and North Seas, and include American Arleigh Burke-class destroyers.

The Americans participate in all NATO exercises held near the Kaliningrad region, and there can be several dozen of them a year. For example, in 2021, it is planned to hold up to 20 naval exercises near the Russian borders, some of which are large-scale, when the grouping increases to 30-40 ships. In almost all exercises, Russia is viewed as an enemy and the maneuvers are directed against the Russian group in the region.

Unlike the Black Sea, where the presence of ships from non-Black Sea countries is limited by the Montreux Convention and is 21 days, the presence of American ships in the Baltic and North Seas is not limited by anything.

The Baltic Fleet is ready to repel a possible attack, the military infrastructure in the Kaliningrad region has been significantly strengthened and continues to build up forces. This is done in response to the strengthening of NATO, both on land and at sea.

    They walk in shoals in the Baltic, but as they enter Chernoe one by one, everyone ... put out the light, as if the American AUG entered.
    Yes, let them go to health (mental), ours also need someone to train on. And it doesn't hurt to see what the adversaries have invented there. And then there are actually tickets to the ground. So what if we didn’t have enough theater binoculars for everyone, this is not leveled by sniper optics.
    So, "Welkam", gentlemen of the Stars and Stripes, as they say in the Russian city of Odessa, "we will see."

      Yes, of course, sheer "pleasure" for our Navy: And tickets to the orchestra, and to train .... And then, what they themselves come to us and see and train together with friendly fleets, this is so - little things, they say "we will see" and what if we shower with "bastions", "daggers", "zircons", and we also have a submarine in the Baltic and a warehouse with hats!

        So let them go. Do you propose to train on "cats"?

          Not on cats, the stump is clear, but not near our bases either. To "practice" you need to go to the Sargasso Sea, to the Bahamas, the Gulf of Mexico. And, such "trainings", with our terrorists, sharply reduce the flight time of NATO ammunition to our facilities, suddenly they "get tired of training" and go on to combat ..

            Also on the topic: "The United States intends to expand its military presence in the Black Sea region. To this end, the American military will modernize the airbase in the town of Campia-Turziy in Romania." By your logic, this fact is just "luck" for ours, train until you drop, and not at all on kitties. Why go to them, they themselves came.

    the presence of American ships in the Baltic and North Seas is not limited by anything.

    It's just that the Yankees are guarding our SP-2.

    Well, there in the Baltic there are many more fascist mines emerging after storms, it is necessary to activate this process somehow for Petrova and Bashirov

      I just thought that earlier finds were often reported from the war times. It cannot be that they have all caught. There must be something left.

    It would not hurt to restore the Russian nuclear submarine cruisers' voyages to the Atlantic. And once, once, past the Scapa Flow base of the English fleet, another time, across the English Channel and the Pas-de-Calais. You can train strategic pilots on the Tu-160M ​​at the same time and check out the novelty.

      It is much better not even to drive a cruiser, but to demonstratively conduct anti-submarine exercises of a naval group not far from the coast of Scotland. Who does not know - next to Glasgow is the actual base of SSBNs.
