Estonia called on NATO to build up its military presence in Eastern Europe

43

The threat of Russian invasion not only to Ukraine, but also to other countries of Eastern Europe remains at a fairly high level, Russia can keep its troops on the border for several years, thereby creating a threat. This was stated by Minister of Defense of Estonia Kalle Laanet.


Russia has brought its troops into the territory of Belarus and is not going to withdraw them from there. In addition, an attack on Ukraine may not take place in the near future, in the long term, Russia may keep troops on the border for several years, creating a threat of invasion. Against this background, Laanet calls on Brussels to strengthen its military presence on the "right flank of NATO."

According to him, NATO needs to increase the military contingent in the Baltic States and Poland, as the most vulnerable countries that stand in the way of the Russian army. Laanet proposes to deploy additional NATO personnel in Lithuania, Latvia and Poland, modestly silent about Estonia. There is also an urgent need to strengthen air defenses, deploy more armored vehicles and pay attention to cybersecurity.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time that the demands for NATO to “immediately increase its military presence” in the Baltics and Poland have been voiced by all countries in turn, as soon as a Russian plane flies near the borders or a warship passes by. Literally two weeks ago, exactly the same demands were put forward by Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics, who reacted to the deployment of Russian troops in Belarus. He was echoed by Estonian Foreign Minister Eva-Maria Liimets.

Four NATO battle groups are now deployed on the territory of the Baltic republics and in Poland, which have significantly increased in recent days. The United States and Great Britain have already deployed their troops to Eastern Europe, and Germany has also increased its military presence. However, the Baltic States still fear that these forces will not be enough to "contain Russia."

        The corrupt pro-American officials of the limitrophe country in Tribaltia, as always, are in their repertoire! They just have to sit at the Brussels feeder!
        And the fact that there will be a PROXY-American war on their land, so they will be washed away from the war from the country in advance.
        They don't care about their people. They don't care about their people at all.
        Their own country for them is just a bargaining chip in their own personal comprador well-being.
        Yes, and NATO's strategy is dictated to them from the United States.
        These countries will take the chestnuts out of the fire, not for themselves, but for the United States.

      The whole issue is to scale. smile
      By Russian standards, Estonia constantly keeps ALL its troops on the border with Russia, because the entire Estonian is dying out 269 kilometers across, from Russia to the Baltic Sea (Haapsalu).
      So isn't it time for the Estonians to somehow remove their troops from the Russian-Estonian border? I think it's time.
      The island of Saaremaa, as the location of the Estonian army, can be discussed. And NATO allies have nothing to do there at all.
      Something like that.

        All of Estonia can go to Saaremaa, because Kolyvan, Yuryev, Narva are Russian Land.

      Our Balts yesterday listened very carefully to Putin's speech (I even heard a Latvian neighbor yelling on the phone in the evening, "the Russians went on the offensive"), where he explained the ARTIFICIAL origin of the outskirts.
      The Balts understand that their non-countries were also created artificially, on Russian soil, and see this as a direct parallel with the outskirts.
      Hence the fear and requests to the West.

      how to say ... they are all trying to wave their fists even without it. sometimes they scream about violating the airspace and demand air defense systems, then in Narva (on the border with the Russian Federation!) "exercises" with shooting, albeit idle ones (and on the other side they may not know that they are not combat and not in the Russian Federation). in general, a vigorous cow asks for horns. better of course BY THE HORN

          Yes, they don’t really run around like a woman, ordinary members of the bars, of which there are four or five, the town of the regional center is small. Near my work, a couple of hundred meters away, there is a pizzeria, a cafe and a coffee cafe and a headquarters, so they constantly go to lunch during the day. The most decent of them are shtatovtsy. I talk to people I already know. Well, just like us, there are no horns, the underground one even teaches Russian, I talk with him about the life of being.

    Estonia's call for the deployment of NATO forces on its territory is essentially similar to the request:
    "Russians, when you throw your nuclear bombs on NATO countries, don't forget about Estonia, we also have their troops stationed."

      So they already asked for it. They bought anti-ship missiles and boasted that they would reach St. Petersburg. This means that the first salvo must be hit on launchers and more powerful, guaranteed to be destroyed.
