Former commander of NATO European forces: It is necessary to transfer missiles to Ukraine for strikes on Russian territory

The countries of the North Atlantic Alliance must supply the Ukrainian army with long-range missiles so that the Armed Forces of Ukraine can attack targets on the territory of Russia itself. This was stated by the former commander of NATO forces in Europe, US Air Force General Philip Breedlove, whose words are quoted by Bild.


Currently, the West is increasingly discussing the possibility of supplying Ukraine with longer-range missiles. Since the United States had already promised the Kyiv regime to transfer Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) to Ukraine, supporters of a further escalation of the conflict had the hope that longer-range missiles could also be transferred.

General Breedlove believes that the supply of such missiles is simply necessary. After all, it is very difficult to conduct military operations when the enemy army can safely operate from its territory, the retired military emphasizes.

We need to rethink our rules regarding weapons, which we supply to Ukraine and thereby provide it with more opportunities to deliver deeper strikes against the aggressor

Breedlove said.

That is, the ex-commander of the NATO European Command believes that long-range missiles should be handed over to Ukraine so that it can strike deep into Russian territory.

True, for some reason the general does not want to think about the fact that such actions by both Ukraine and the West can lead to appropriate consequences. Indeed, in response, Russia can take such measures that the current strikes on energy infrastructure facilities will seem like a “light warm-up”. And then everyone will not be happy, including those who contribute to inciting the Ukrainian conflict, sitting in Warsaw, Brussels or London. Maybe the retired General Breedlove will not be able to sit out across the Atlantic Ocean.

      Only the naive can argue that the Anglo-Saxons are delusional and do not evaluate their actions in the future.

      Everything is just the opposite.
      The Anglo-Saxons assess the situation on the fronts of the former territory of the Ukrainian SSR very well and see that Russia is consistently and specifically knocking out all the former Soviet air defense systems left to Ukraine as a legacy from the USSR.

      "Patriot" is only the first sign of Western air defense supplies to Ukraine, and as Soviet products are destroyed, the Anglo-Saxons will supply their air defense systems in order to integrate them into the common NATO system and supply their ammunition, which is sufficient for NATO countries.

      Like it or not, the Anglo-Saxons decided to fight to the last Ukrainian, Russian, Belarusian or Pole, until no one stops the Anglo-Saxons or until they themselves start riots, revolutions or civil wars.

        Then you need to hit the Anglo-Saxons themselves. Let them think. Rather, you need to beat those who say such nonsense. There are coordinates. You need to think about how to make it more painful for those who say so.

        Didn't they think that the war "until the last Russian" could easily develop into a war "until the last Anglo-Saxon"? After all, they will bring, bastards ...

        Yesterday, American Grandpa said that the Patriots, in his opinion, will not lead to an escalation.
        How can he determine?
        Escalation is when the actions of one lead to the response of another. And determines the response of the one, the other. And the one who committed the actions, the only thing he can do is wait for an answer.
        Either Grandfather is very sure that we and the "Patriots", and everything else, will swallow and there will be NO answer, or he takes too much upon himself, determining the level of the answer himself, replacing the GDP and our General Staff with his dementia.

      A rat position, we ourselves are afraid of inciting others ((((I have already noted many times that the supply of long-range missile systems to Ukraine will lead to a qualitatively new SVO, from Russia there will no longer be a discount on the civilian or non-civilian population of Ukraine, their cities will be erased to zero.

        there will no longer be a discount for the peaceful or non-civilian population of Ukraine, their cities will be erased to zero.

        Breedlove directly trembled in his Florida and was very saddened by the problems of the civilian population of Ukraine.
        erase their cities will be to zero.

        I’m not even going to consider the moral side of the issue, since it’s impossible to swear here, but even from an economic point of view, it is only beneficial for construction companies and others, for the state there are additional costs for restoration, about the difficulties of assimilation of the population of cities “wiped out” from the face of the earth I will also shut up.

The defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is strongholds and bypassing a single settlement does not give anything, but no matter how regrettable it sounds, but only to zero, and morale in a war when you or you are not considered. Let's put aside false shame, when the question of your personal life arises, you will not hesitate to first throw a grenade, and then enter the hut where the militants were just sitting, if you deny I won’t argue with you, read on tearful novels (((

            Let's drop the false shame

            And what about shame? There is such a word - expediency and it is not always military. Yes, even from the point of view of military expediency, the targeted bombing of the civilian population (and there is no other way to understand your quote "there will no longer be discounts for civilians" does not work) has a negative effectiveness, since it is the strongest motivating factor to join the ranks of the Armed Forces of everyone, young and old. Even now, strikes on energy can bring a slightly unexpected result, and even on civilians.
            And from a political point of view, this is a complete fiasco, as it will be difficult for even conditionally neutral states to maintain their neutrality, and even "unfriendly" ones to turn around to the fullest and, most importantly, their population will be ready to put up with more serious economic consequences of politicians' decisions, t .e. will be ready to tighten their belts, and some even go to war.

            when the question arises about your personal life, you will not hesitate to first throw a grenade, and then enter the hut where the militants were just sitting,

            And if not militants? Are you sure that your psyche will survive? And then what to do with those whose psyche can withstand?

                      Not to distort, I did not call for the destruction of the civilian population, we are talking about the destruction of enemy cities as the infrastructure of an enemy state in the event of massive bombing of our cities and the death of our civilian population, but the fact that when our strikes are carried out, their population will also die, I personally would I didn’t get upset because I repeat 90 percent. these are potentially enemy soldiers or volunteers. And I repeat once again, I worry about our population, and I don’t care what will happen to the population of Banderlogia, they themselves asked for it, welcoming the bombing of the LDNR for the last 8 years.

        Here is just not a rat! Cold calculation and nothing more! The heat is raked in by someone else's hands. It is very profitable to fight the enemy through an intermediary, you don’t feel sorry for the intermediary, the enemy spends resources! Own territory is not killed! The strength and power of the supplied weapons will be increased gradually so that the conflict does not fade and it does not reach the global fire, so as not to fall under! At the end of any of this conflict will be left with clean hands! Even if Ukraine wins, it will never be able to pay off its debts! Russia paid off lend-lease debts already under Putin! Well, then the Americans shod us!

          They have frozen gold reserves of Russia, in the event of a "defeat" it will be difficult to keep them, and victory, in general. This will be enough to cover direct costs and loans, the rest will be cut down on the "restoration" of Ukraine, it's not just that Ukraine is now trading this right between its "allies".
          Otherwise, I completely agree, the West (represented by the USA) will make good money on this.

    Yah? And how are strikes on objects deep into Russia so fundamentally different from strikes on border areas in terms of reaction to them? Unless, of course, the Kremlin or the dachas in Barvikha suffer. And this will be followed by strikes against the NATO infrastructure on their territory? I do not believe!

    General Breedlove believes that the supply of such missiles is simply necessary. After all, it is very difficult to conduct military operations when the enemy army can safely operate from its territory, the retired military emphasizes.

    But nothing that NATO supplies weapons, ammunition and equipment from its territory, carries out target designation, their instructors and special forces are on the territory of combat contact. They "do not indulge at all" are drawn into the war. So, perhaps, and we need to put questions in a similar way. If military operations are carried out with their help, then they should also be subjected to strikes, regardless of where their planes, ships, etc. are located. World War III, tell me, will it smell? They won't fight. Wrong people. Otherwise, we will remain eternally guilty and victims. If there is power, it must be presented. Stop stating facts, persuading and calling for prudence.

    It would be necessary to capture Haymars and strike at Poland from the territory controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. But personally, I would score and calmly hit the reloading stations, unloading airfields and transportation vehicles in the territories of NATO countries. It seems to me more and more that, as they say in textbooks, to start a war, you need to calculate the probability of victory. Nothing personal, just math. As soon as mathematics is not on our side, there will be an "unexpected" invasion. Therefore, until then, it is possible to bomb (without fanaticism, at least sometimes) the territories of the allies. Until mathematics wins, no one will go further than diplomatic demarches. And then it will be too late. I have been convinced more than once that the accountants in the Moscow Region are so-so. They are not bad, just lazy. If suddenly in June they thought that everything is fine with us, then in February it is not necessary to recalculate.
    NATO methodically promotes more and more new weapons, watching the reaction of the Defense Ministry. But this is all a rehearsal for a general offensive. The directions are already clear. You don't have to be 7 spans in the forehead to understand where. No need to think that they are waiting for a reason. They're just not quite ready yet.

    When they hit Moscow, will it still not stand on the Russian side?
    And there is a way to answer - a strike on Washington or London (depending on who delivers missiles to strike at Moscow) with a single ICBM with a conventional charge.
    Let's see how they then go to the escalation and whether it will stand up to them sideways.
