The generals of Norway, Sweden and Finland agreed to "defend the Scandinavian region"

40

The generals agreed to defend the Scandinavian region. New close cooperation between the armies of Norway, Sweden and Finland strengthens security in the Scandinavian countries. The commanders of the army of the northern countries fully agree with this, as they themselves stated during the meeting.


The army commanders of the three Scandinavian countries recently met at the Norwegian military base in Porsanger on the eve of the major exercise Cold Response 2022 ["Cold response"]. According to them, the cooperation of the three states made it possible to strengthen the defense capability of the entire northern region to ensure the protection of all Scandinavia.

Together we are strong. You could say we're defending the Nordic way of life

- said Finnish Lieutenant General Pasi Välimyaki.

According to his Norwegian colleague Lars Lervik, Europe is now witnessing an unprecedented military deployment for decades. Under these conditions, military cooperation increases the ability to deal with emerging threats:

The military can learn a lot from each other and benefit from the positive aspects of each army.

The Scandinavian press has already discussed this meeting. In the Norwegian edition of NRK, observers believe that the military cooperation of the three countries should not alarm Russia:

The common northern defensive line is a good strategic buffer between the Russian Federation and the United States.


At the same time, the very composition of the Cold Response 2022 exercises refutes the statements of the Scandinavian "experts". Almost all of the 28 participating countries are members of NATO. In total, 35 thousand fighters will be deployed on land, sea and in the air - and this is just near the Russian borders. In fact, all of Scandinavia, including formally "neutral" Sweden and Finland, is becoming the frontier of the alliance, and not a mythical "buffer zone".

      They imagine themselves to be a buffer zone and play war games with NATO warriors) and when the whole crowd will have to rake, what will they say? Chick-chirp, I'm in the house) or will they immediately sharply remember about neutrality?)

        What is the buffer zone? Is it okay that Norway is a member of NATO?

        All the rhetoric of the Western media about "Russian aggression" has become a good rattle for the management and arms trade, filling old markets with more advanced types and developing new ones - junk, moreover, with the provision of loans. Nuland spoke about Finland's accession to NATO for the first time after her visit to Moscow. Why did she go there, however, like Lizka from the Route? Some clichés, but the merchants' economies are moving and bringing in substantial income. Who succeeded is understandable and they are not going to give up the reins of leadership. It is possible to modernize and repair old military equipment, since the Americans have given the go-ahead to do this bypassing the manufacturer, but in order to develop and produce your own, it’s low. So the Scandinavians are going to foist something.

      Yes, let them protect from someone (even from Honduras). The Scandinavians decided to increase their importance, they decided to become a buffer. Let there be those who hinder them. The main thing is that we are not spoiled.

        That's the bullshit. They will protect from Honduras, and spoil us. Well, like, like missiles in Poland and Romania against Iran, but they are looking at us.

          Although I do not quite understand the movement of Norway as a member of NATO. Where else did they dare to jump without the approval of the main Member.

            Russophobia breeds fear. In smart and strong-willed people, fear is a controllable thing. The weak and stupid do not, so what they can do out of fear is unpredictable.

    The generals of Norway, Sweden and Finland agreed to "defend the Scandinavian region"

    From whom? From your fears? So many beautiful natural landscapes in Scandinavia. Lakes, fjords, rocks... What do you want? Who will look after you?
    Finns! You gave me a ride on the bus when I missed the last flight of the city...
    Norse! It was you who, during an excursion to the German cemetery, approached me and my son when we were catching flounder in the bay (1993) and, asking your son to pick up the flounder, took a picture and then sent (!!!) it to the school, where the director immediately identified student and gave him a photograph (it is at home in the album). It was you who sent NATO rations for officer families when there was nothing left at all in the only Shopping Center ... (Sorry that our commanders and chiefs divided this gift at their discretion, and their kids ate NATO chocolates and chewed gum in front of our guys ...)
    Sorry Swedes! I didn't have the honor to meet you personally, but I heard a lot from you at ABBA, Ace of Base, Europe concerts...
    Now your generals have decided something there ... But ours are not plotting anything yet ... For now ... But, if you insist ...

    "The military can learn a lot from each other and benefit from the positive sides of each army. "(c) winked The main thing is to intimidate the population and take advantage of. And so their stones, fjords and the whole canoe are not the prize because of which it is worth fighting. It would be wise for them to disband the army in general. There is no sense from them, only expenses.

    The common northern defensive line is a good strategic buffer between the Russian Federation and the United States.

    In the photo, Pasi Välimyaki explains to Lervik how to deploy the armies of the Nordic giants,
    so that there is enough for a "buffer between the Russian Federation and the USA" ...

    . It seems that they defended themselves before, in alliance with someone from the islands ... and sho, Aloizovich did what he wanted to do, for once or twice ... that's business.

    It seems that these are signs of the impending collapse of NATO and the desire of the Scandinavians to go under the wing of Britain. Apparently, the Scandinavians do not know everything about Britain.

    "You can say we are defending the Nordic way of life" - The nature of the Nordic. Brake.
    "The common northern defensive line is a good strategic buffer between the Russian Federation and the United States." - They themselves declared that they were not independent sovereign states, but a buffer. Pad.
