German President is concerned about Russia's activity on the "eastern flank of NATO"

40

Russian military activity on the eastern flank of NATO has increased significantly, and Russian military aircraft are increasingly violating the airspace of the Baltic countries. This was stated by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at a meeting with the Presidents of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.


The German President stressed that Russia is strengthening its presence at NATO's borders and this increased activity worries him very much. He assured the Baltic countries of support for Germany personally and NATO as a whole, calling the alliance the only defense against Russia.

How much we need NATO as a strong alliance we see every day in the Baltic Sea region. I am concerned that military activity on EU borders is on the rise again

Steinmeier said.

According to the German President, the security situation in the Baltic Sea is "very serious", the threat of incidents has increased significantly since the events of 2014. Russian military aircraft violate the airspace of the Baltic countries almost every day. At the same time, he assured that Germany will monitor the territorial integrity of the Baltic states.

Whoever threatens the Baltic states threatens the whole of NATO, threatens Germany. Therefore, the Bundeswehr is in charge of NATO forces in Lithuania, therefore the German Air Force is guarding the airspace in the Baltic Sea region.

- he added.

          German President stressed that Russia is strengthening its presence at NATO borders

          And you, president, are you stupid?
          Russia on NATO borders? Not the other way around? Chtol addict?
          Before this statement, I considered him an adequate person, but no, only for the sake of the conjuncture he is interested in

            The president there in peacetime does not influence politics at all.
            All he can do is dissolve the government in the event of a crisis. It may not yet sign the new law that has been issued by the government.

              A politician of a politically significant country, by any statements, influences politics in the region or the world. I'm talking about something else, it's low, for the President of Germany, to fawn on statements in favor of small outlying mongrels living on EU subsidies, the lion's share of which is occupied by the infusions of this very Germany

                What I’m talking about.
                The German President must be above politics. This is the meaning of his position.

            Russia strengthens its presence at NATO borders


            Nehru was to move their boundaries to our doorstep. As soon as you go out the door, they are already screaming about the borders.
            Be patient!

    It is known who threatens the Baltic states. It remains to find out - why do we need them? Only they know this.

    According to the German President, the security situation in the Baltic Sea is "very serious", the threat of incidents has increased significantly since the events of 2014.

    So it's time for German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier to learn that the last two world wars were started not by Russia, but by Germany. And who will start the Third World War, he also knows very well. And less need to wander around the limitrophes, and put things in order in their country.

    German President is concerned about Russia's activity on the "eastern flank of NATO"

    - No, well, this is simply incomprehensible to the mind ... - How insane is Europe ... - She (Europe) is all worried about ... - how to protect itself from the "threat" from Russia ... - And the fact that today there is a real global threat ... - and this is a threat - China ... - it just doesn't bother anyone in Europe ...
    - But who could have thought that it would be so easy for Europe to face a threat from refugees from another "alien world" ... - and the world is not industrially organized ... - And then ... - even from these refugees to Europe already " it didn’t seem small "...
    - And what can ... do with Europe industrialized industrialized China; when it really "gets" to Europe ... - All European enterprises (including German ones) will simply become unprofitable and half of the Germans and other Europeans will simply end up on the street; and the rest will begin to work according to the "Chinese rules" ... - up to German private breweries ... - The Chinese are not at all sentimental ... - and they are absolutely indifferent ... - how the Europeans will live "under them" ... For China, there is only the fate and comfort of one people ... - this is the fate of the Chinese, and for the rest they ............................. ......
    - And Europe is still fighting the "threat" of Russia ... - Nu-nu ...
    - Yes, if Merkel is replaced by the same and_di_ot ... - like this Steinmeier; then Europeans (and everyone else) should not expect anything good ...

    Someone forced NATO to be located at the borders of the Russian Federation? They would have stayed within their borders for 91 years and there would have been no Russian activity near the eastern borders of NATO. And now NATO has pinned itself to our borders and is dissatisfied with something there. As the once unforgettable Anton Palych Chekhov wrote - to the garden, everything to the garden ... hi

    NATO is climbing to our borders, but it turns out that we are approaching ... Not to mention the fact that "Russian military aircraft violate the airspace of the Baltic countries almost every day."
    Where is the evidence, president? For sure, if it seems to you that your work is pointless, remember that there is a president in Germany.
