NATO forces worked out the defense of the Suwalki corridor, taking into account the experience of the Armed Forces of Ukraine against the Russian army

NATO forces conducted exercises to defend the Suwalki (Suwalki) corridor - a strategically important 64 km section of the Lithuanian-Polish border, located between Belarus and the Kaliningrad region of Russia. This was reported in the Ministry of Defense of Poland.


Lithuania, Poland and the units of other NATO countries that joined them, with a total of more than 2 thousand military personnel, worked out the defense of the Suwalki corridor from superior enemy forces, in the role of which Russia and Belarus traditionally act. At the same time, as Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak said, their own experience and the experience of military operations of the Ukrainian army against Russian troops were used.

We know what methods Russia uses and what methods are effective against it (...) training is based on our experience and observations of the battles in Ukraine

- he added.


In April of this year, after Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland developed a joint plan for the defense of the Suwalki corridor, fearing that the combined group of Russia and Belarus would strike at the junction between the two countries to create a land corridor to the Kaliningrad region. At the same time, the Baltics will be completely cut off from other countries of the alliance.

According to this plan, the joint Polish-Lithuanian group must hold out until the approach of the allies, primarily the armies of Latvia and Estonia, as well as NATO tactical groups stationed on the territory of the Baltic countries. According to preliminary calculations by NATO analysts, Poland and the Baltic states will be able to defend the Suwalki corridor from 36 to 60 hours with the available forces, waiting for the main NATO forces to approach.

    This is understandable ... they carefully monitor everything, notice and record all our strengths and weaknesses, and ... in general, now it’s not up to that, but for our jambs / weaknesses, we will have to fix a lot of things.

      logistics, direct reconnaissance-artillery lines. strike UAVs and reconnaissance drones, long-range artillery and high-precision projectiles / missiles, the formation of assault regiments, BTGs are not very suitable for a breakthrough.

      What are your jambs and weaknesses and what needs to be corrected there? War is not a sausage factory where you made a mistake with the recipe or didn’t report something - you shifted it and the jamb came out the wrong product. Military operations never go as planned, and as if on knurled, there is always the effect of surprise or miscalculation in planning, even for a simple reason, the enemy got up on the wrong foot in the morning and then correcting jambs will not help in any way - because in another situation, even the same joint or weak side can play to win. But incompetent commanders, yes, they must be corrected quickly and harshly, right up to the tribunal. And then the generals are more than two thousand, and only a few can fight and command perfectly. It would be worthwhile to send many generals to junior command positions in the NWO to gain experience, but if you don’t want to, quit without ranks and pensions.

        The question is not in the name, in terms ... the question is, in order not to repeat, I correct the mistakes made earlier.
        There is probably a list of what needs to be corrected by specialists, people who care about the cause.

      The recipe for preventing the approach of NATO troops to help and overcome our troops is as simple as a scrap-nuclear weapon a hundred kilometers to the west of the scene.

      Nothing!
      There aren't even roads!
      Railway in general only goes through Vilnius (like?).
      So that not a corridor, but the whole of Lithuania will become second-hand.
      Like Banderstadt.

        Taking Tribaltia is a real task. And "breaking through the Suwalki corridor" is utter nonsense. It is easier to keep this narrowness under dense crossfire while the main grouping clears our Baltic possessions from the Nazis.

    the combined Polish-Lithuanian grouping must hold out until the approach of the allies, first turn of the armies of Latvia and Estonia,

    Of course, you can threaten Russia with the "armies" of Latvia and Estonia. Especially after the "concern for the life and health of military personnel" declared by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation during the surrender of Kherson.

      We will talk about this when mobilized fresh forces enter the NMD zone, increasing the total outfit of forces by 2,5-3 times. And this is only at the beginning of December.

          They were ordered not to think, they did not think. Yes, they were taught to think about a real war.
          Now they are learning to fight for real.
          You do not confuse business interests, politicians' policies and military tasks. The military has a third case in this scenario.
          Everything was started to "talk" and get their guarantees. It didn't grow. Now they will fight.
          For real .
          And strikes on the energy infrastructure in / on, this is a sign and example.

          And where do they go?
          How much will it cost now?
          And it was not the military who came up with the thesis about the "Small Professional Army", it was they - the towers.
          And there are no towers in / on - one external control and servos.

    The corridor is certainly good, but if we cut it, it will not be a corridor at all, and Lithuania will fully feel it. Well, since this is a NATO country, then the war will be completely different, for which neither we nor they are ready.

    If something happens, the Suwalki corridor can be expanded due to the complete disappearance of Poland and Lithuania from the planet Earth, don’t they really understand that the third world war will not be based on the experience of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it definitely won’t be needed there ((((Don’t bring it to global sin.

    as stated by Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak, was used own experience and the experience of military operations of the army of Ukraine against Russian troops
    The experience of hostilities in Ukraine is understandable, especially since the Poles take an active part in hostilities. But the question arises about my own experience. Poland took part in NATO in the following operations:
    -International Forces in Kosovo (KFOR);
    -International Stabilization Force (SFOR) in Bosnia and Herzegovina;
    -International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.
    - mission in Iraq (2003-2008);
    -NATO mission to protect the airspace of the Baltic States ("NATO Air Force Rapid Reaction Force");
    - "Active efforts" in the Mediterranean;
    - NATO Response Force in the Atlantic Ocean.
    In which of these operations did the Poles gain much experience in defending against a strong enemy armed with modern weapons? And then even funnier:
    the joint Polish-Lithuanian grouping must hold out until the approach of the allies, first of all, the armies of Latvia and Estonia ...
    As long as the army of Latvia and especially Estonia gathers and approaches, then there will already be no one to defend.

    The experience of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is the experience of war, when the enemy's hands are tied for humanitarian reasons. I think that on the territory of Poland we will fight mainly with tactical nuclear weapons. There is no one to pity for us.

    Even great people make mistakes. Stalin obviously did not think when he drew the borders, Suwalki (and not only) should have been given to the BSSR. Although ... even in a nightmare he could not imagine that the USSR would fall apart, and the Troebalts would join NATO.

    The "Suwalki corridor" is the area from where the attack on Kaliningrad will take place, and not the breakthrough of the "Russian army". The release of Kaliningrad is possible only through the occupation of the Baltic states from Reval to Memel itself. Here all railways and ports are Russian.
