The NATO admiral called the lack of developed infrastructure in a number of countries of the alliance the reason for the unwillingness to respond "to the Russian threat"

NATO said that the alliance has significant problems in terms of "Russia's response" in Europe. In particular, the issue of the lack of a developed infrastructure is raised, including infrastructure for the transfer of a large amount of military equipment, for example, to the Baltic countries.


Thus, the head of the NATO military committee, Admiral Rob Bauer, pointed out that there are problems with infrastructure in a number of countries of the alliance, and not only on the eastern flank.

Bauer:

There are a lot of shortcomings, which is why we are most often not ready to respond to the threat from Russia.

We are talking about the absence of bridges that could withstand the passage of columns of NATO heavy equipment, about the track, which in the Baltic States is 1520 mm, being identical in width to the track with Russia.

The width of the railway track in the Baltics is often cited as direct evidence that these territories have been part of the common space with Russia for many decades. The authorities of the Baltic countries have repeatedly stated the need to change the gauge to "European standards", but due to funding problems, these projects often remained on paper. For example, in Lithuania alone, more than 1,7 thousand km of railway lines would have to be changed.

Another infrastructure problem is the lack of repair and maintenance capacities for servicing NATO-style military equipment.

    Yes, you have a systemic crisis - you have NATO has no purpose of existence. Why does it exist? To repel what threats and protect what and where? CIA poppy plantations in Afghanistan? What the hell is the 30-30-30 concept?! In 30 days, while you bring 30 divisions to combat readiness, they can really have time to stomp to Berlin with a forced march, if the ox is not the right one, but demolish all the cities along the way to zero.
    You first decide whether NATO is generally the army of Europe or the native troops of the white Sahib under the striped flag? otherwise he didn’t get drunk to protect someone other than himself

      Now they will stomp closer from dates to St. Petersburg. However, what to stomp then, with full-scale NATO aggression, they will be glazed immediately, quickly and efficiently. At least I hope so.

      How is that not a goal? There are goals, they are quite specific and important: to keep all the armies and military-industrial complex of Europe under total American control, as well as to attract "non-American cannon fodder" in various messes of democrats on a legal basis. This is why NATO exists. And it's very funny to listen to the arguments that with the disappearance of the Warsaw bloc, NATO should also disappear.

      Be afraid of your desires. I've been a pessimist lately.

        You know... Standing up to army men is somewhat better than fighting gangs.

    It would be interesting to know the results of a poll of Europeans about fear of the Russian threat after our retreat from Kherson. Poland and the Baltic states can be ignored. Isn't it time to allocate additional budgets to support fear, or is it normal so far?

    Mediocrity!
    A NATO admiral stepped onto the podium. buttons to the very right ... you can see - the admiral!
    What kind of infrastructure is there, what kind of readiness is there to respond to the “Russian threat”?! Western Europe was forbidden to fly over Russia only because the toilets on the planes could not cope with bouts of pronounced "Russophobia" ... It's like putting a cyclist in control of an icebreaker ... lol
