As Estonians and Latvians invincible armies bragged

203
Estonians started. That's what they wrote in the newspaper. "Postimees" 6 November:

“The defense forces of Estonia and Latvia, which started from one line twenty years ago, are now in a diametrically opposite position. Latvian Defense Forces are not ready to fight at all. They can neither defend their country nor cooperate internationally. Estonia’s southern border is defenseless. ”


As Estonians and Latvians invincible armies bragged

How did the Latvians blunder? Here are the Estonians - well done. Judge for yourself. Their country is the smallest in the Baltic area. And in terms of population, too. But it can protect itself: after all, the Estonians themselves consider it a country “with independent defense capability”.

“You shouldn’t go into euphoria, but basically it means that the Estonian army is able to fight and protect the state. With some amendments, the same can be said about Lithuania, but certainly not about Latvia. “In terms of security, Latvia is an empty place,” said Kaarel Kaas, an expert at the International Center for Defense Studies.


Estonians were worried that in the event of an attack they themselves would have to defend their southern border - the Latvian army, that is, the “empty space”, would not help them.

(Another question is, who from the south can, through Latvia, bypass routes invade independent Estonia, such as Minsk residents and Pskov citizens).

But in proof of the fact that the Estonian army is invincible, the above-mentioned newspaper quotes the words of Karlis Neretnieks, a retired general of the Swedish army, who, incidentally, has Latvian roots, so you will not accuse him of bias.

He took and investigated the defense capacity of the Baltic countries - and came to the conclusion that Estonia is a cut above the rest. Moreover, in a few years the gap will become even larger. Brilliant.

In another article, written by Mikka Salu, the army of two neighboring republics are compared in numbers.

If in Estonia today 5000-6000 military personnel are in service, and in wartime 30-40 thousand can stand up, in Latvia 1,7 thousand and 12 thousand respectively. The Estonian defense budget of 2009-2010 is EUR 565 million euros, and Latvians have only 370 million euros. And if valiant Estonians, in case of anything, start to fight with machine guns, machine guns, mortars, artillery, air defense, anti-tank armament and sit on armored personnel carriers (maybe even go), then the Latvian soldiers will be able to walk, run or crawl with machine guns and machine guns. Some lucky men will get rare mortars.

From such comparisons, dissatisfaction with the idleness of Latvians in Estonia is growing. Hence the seemingly absurd statements: "Latvia is a threat to the security of Estonia." So say the retired military Ants Laaneots and Leo Kunnas. Or, say, such an authority as the head of the United educational institutions of the Defense Forces, Colonel Aarne Hermus. A couple of years ago he gave a comparison in the Diplomaatia newspaper of the armed forces of Latvia and Lithuania. Readers were able to enjoy the author’s artistic style: in the event of war, the Latvian army, he wrote, would be able to guard sacks of flour in the rear.

The misfortune of Latvia is that Mikk Salu admits that there is no military service in the army in Latvia - there are only professional soldiers, but in Estonia there are conscripts, reservists, and professional military personnel. In short, in Estonia there is everything. The author does not forget to add:

"At the same time, Estonia is superior to Latvia in all respects, both quantitatively and qualitatively, we have more soldiers and they are better trained, we also have more equipment and it is more qualitative."


And what can the Latvian machine gunners?

“The Latvian armed forces are, in fact, lightly armed infantry, which means the presence of assault rifles, machine guns and mortars. In Latvia, there are almost no armored personnel carriers, anti-tank equipment, artillery and air defense ... Our warring soldiers move on armored personnel carriers, and the Latvians run on their own two. "


General Ants Laaneots also makes fun of Latvians. In his opinion, probably in order to save, the Letts acquired for their warriors “universal uniform”, from which there is no good:

“Everyone who visited the Estonian Defense Forces' Spring Storm” exercise, where Latvian units take part every year, could see with their own eyes that Latvians in their funny beige-spotted outfit from afar are conspicuous and soldiers of the Estonian Army can beat them Latvian professionals are like chickens. ”


Salou knows what the problem of Latvians is in money. They have no money. Estonia spends 40-50% more on defense than Latvia. But this is only official. In fact, the Latvians also spend their military budget in a very original way. For example, a company car for the president easily fits in with defense expenditures. There can also enter the construction of athletic fields. Why? Do not the soldiers need to pump up muscles?

And from such expenses, the generals in NATO, we note, begin to think: yes, the Latvians are spending on defense, this is good. And look - on a sports ground something at all not military. And if you look closely - even non-citizens come across. It is better to write together: non-citizens.

So much so that the Latvians included in the defense expenditures of the Bank of Latvia’s security team, as well as spending on organizing singing holidays, in defense expenditures emboldened by their own postmodernism.

Points are being rubbed into the NATO members by a promise to increase the country's defense budget to 2%. We will probably add from ourselves that they will start keeping orphanages with this money and build cinemas. This is a very peaceful country, Latvia.

And then a Latvian military airfield disappeared somewhere. He had plans, but in reality he was not.

“Recently, Estonia declared that it would like to see NATO planes in the future at our air base in Ämari - they could be deployed in turn in Lithuania and Estonia. For some reason, this plan was opposed by the Minister of Defense of Latvia Artis Pabriks - in his opinion, NATO aircraft could continue to remain only in Lithuania.

Perhaps this is just a rumor, but at least two sources claim that the reason for the opposition from the Latvians is the fear that Latvian voters will be interested in: why NATO planes do not appear in our area, what we did wrong.

“In fact, NATO has allocated funds for Latvia so that they can also equip their own airfield,” said one Estonian official. “Why they did not do this is unknown.”


Then it's time to say your weighty word to the Minister of Defense of Latvia. He said.

Sleep well, Estonian brothers - roughly in these words Artis Pabriks expressed confidence that the southern border of the Estonian state is safe. As for the different articles in Postimees there, it is tendentious and heats up the atmosphere. And there is no analysis. And in general, if necessary, the Latvian Ministry of Defense will offer Postimees several articles about its army.

Following the Minister of Defense to the Estonian brothers requested Latvian President Andris Berzins and Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis. The President stressed that Latvia had proved its defense capability by participating in the NATO mission in Afghanistan, and said that "in this industry, we are fine."

And Dombrovskis criticized the ability of Estonians to write analytical articles:

“If a specific newspaper found one expert with such an opinion, this is the choice of a specific newspaper. I am sure that you can find other experts with a more informed opinion. ”


In Latvia, you can just find them.

November 23 appeared in "Postimees" long article Raimonds Rublovskis, Researcher at the Latvian Institute of International Relations. He believes that Estonia has no reason to regard Latvia as a threat to its security, because both republics are members of NATO. Latvia only needs to increase its defense spending.

And since Latvia has planned to increase them - gradually, slowly, by the year 2020, we add from ourselves, there seems to be no problem.

Approximately thinks so Latvian expert. Why do some Estonian politicians, experts and state security officials consider Latvia to be the weak link of the Baltic security and defense region of NATO? - he asks a question.

It turns out that his native country lacks not only money, but also political will.

"It can be said that the lack of political will to achieve the goal - two percent of GDP for defense spending - is the most serious problem that affects both the internal situation of Latvia, and especially the further development of the Latvian armed forces, as well as external relations with the US , our neighbors and the entire North Atlantic alliance. "


That is the big question whether the plan will be fulfilled: there is a crisis in the country. Even one percent of GDP Latvia pulls out with difficulty.

And then there's the personnel question. Where to find good warriors, if they don’t have enough money? All true professionals resigned back in 2008 year.

In addition, judging by Rublovskis’s article, living in Latvia is not easy:

"And if we take into account the current problems of Latvia with the population, including emigration, which is still at a high level, it is difficult to believe that the armed forces are able to keep in the service a sufficient number of educated and motivated people."


International military operations are also a problem for Latvia. Since there is no money, there are not enough people - what kind of operations are there?

The expert offers the Latvian armed forces to find a suitable way to participate in international operations. For some reason, he points to the period after 2014 of the year when NATO completes its mission in Afghanistan. Probably because he cites this date, that after the 2014 blowjob a year, the Latvians could do, say, the heroic processing of information in the cabinets.

As for the small number of Latvian troops, it does not matter, the analyst believes. Now, after all, they are fighting not with numbers, but with skill.

"In the 21st century, there is no need for a large number of military personnel, since in ensuring security, technical equipment is becoming increasingly important, which requires well-educated and motivated people, which the draft system simply cannot offer."


That's right. But only these most motivated people are not in the Latvian army, as Rublovskis himself said earlier. There were, yes gone to 2008. Only the demotivated remained - in small numbers and without skill.

Here, it seems, the expert himself has driven himself into a dead end.

He had to continue to talk about what kind of army in Finland and how it influenced the army of Estonia, and that Estonia itself, by the way, no matter how it boasted by its army, still needs “collective security and defense offered by NATO and strategic partnership with the United States. "

After talking about the concept of "smart defense" and hinting at "strength historical and geographical reasons ”, Rublovskis called on Estonia to pursue“ close cooperation ”, and therefore“ to stop the ongoing debates in the country ”.

Well, let's cooperate, or else Comrade Lukashenko won himself the other day as a dictator recognized...

      As in one of his speeches in Comedy, Klab said the Belarusian gopher Galygin:
      - Kada eztoniya apyavit Vain practiced Ruthenian, and the skull of the brave eztonian army for years will cross the Rutsk border. All of the Rutsky will wait for the deathly and painful death. laughing

      And after all, it’s really funny to watch how the Baltic Limitrophs jump laughing depicting the rapid construction of armies .... I wonder how many minutes the current Ezton army will be able to hold essentially consisting of two platoons of terrible Ezton horse-divers on armored personnel carriers, having extended the troops of the northeastern military district .... these brave Ezton men are right for me after all, they have to fight back for 40 days and only after that arrive Negroids on abrams under the NAT flags unless of course we hold out for 40 days)))))

      Estonians even have an air force. A pair of An-2, 3 Albatrosses and 3 sport helicopters. They are commanded by a brigadier general. There is also the Navy - 3 used British minesweepers and 2 boats. So you shouldn't take it off like that ...
      But seriously, I did not understand what and why Mr. Sallu and Co. were comparing. Who should the Balts fight with? With us, Belarus (again with us) or with Finland? In any crazy scenario, even the semblance of war will not work. They are valuable (and that is very limited) for NATO as a springboard (for the USSR - once they were also needed precisely for this, and for everyone who ever ruled there, including knightly orders). That, in fact, is all. Walk-through courtyard. The guys can't even choose their own owners - how the situation will turn out. Well, one's own "greatness" can be calmed down by the oppression of "non-citizens", by the prohibition of Russian culture in principle, by war criminals and gay parades. The parades could be held together. What, I wonder, will come of it ...

      In fact, Latvians are much more cunning than Estonians. If strong opponents go to conquer them, they will not be able to resist strongly. Therefore, their houses will turn out to be much more intact than the Estonian ones, which will start firing mortar cannons, ride on armored personnel carriers, and portray the presence of air defense. Estonians urgently need to reconsider their attitude towards Latvians and take an example from them. And you don’t defend the country normally, and the loot spent by the FIG knows where, and the bombed cities will have to be restored longer hi

        Oh, these fairy tales to me ... Oh, these fairy tales.

        The battle of the Chosin Reservoir occurred in 1950 during the Korean War between the forces of the United Nations (units of the United States and Great Britain) and Chinese people's volunteers.
        At the end of November 1950, the Chinese army, which entered Korean territory, launched a successful offensive against the UN forces on the entire front. On the east coast of Korea, in the area of ​​the Chosin Reservoir, the X UN Corps (consisting of the 1st US Marine Division, the regiment of the 7th US Infantry Division and the British commandos battalion) was surrounded and cut off from supplying superior enemy forces, numbering 8 divisions. In the most difficult winter conditions (deep snowdrifts, temperatures up to -40 degrees Celsius), American units managed to break through the encirclement ring in early December and break through to Hynnam, from where they were subsequently evacuated by sea.

        The battle of the Chosin Reservoir is considered one of the most glorious pages in the history of the US Marine Corps. The commander of the 1st Marine Division, General Oliver Smith, is mistakenly credited with the famous phrase, as if said during the battle: “Retreat? Damn, we're just advancing in a different direction! ” In fact, this fictitious phrase contains the general meaning of the explanation given by Smith to reporters. Losses on both sides during the battle were great. Only the dead forces of the United States lost about 2500 people, and the similar losses of the Chinese are estimated at 25 thousand (probably an overestimated figure). In the troops of both sides, the number of non-combat losses from frostbite was significant.



        Bottom line: It is not indicated how many people died from frostbite.

    Soully neighing!
    moreover, neighing over warlike Estonians. Lord, what are you going to defend yourself there ??? And from whom ??

    Not like a good hint, "Fear Russia, we are Gotta!" Well, this is all in the form of an anecdote about the elusive Joe. 30-40 thousand ... Well, yes, kind of force. I will allow myself to fantasize a bit. If something happens: they will fight in time for about the same as the criticized Latvians, only it will hurt more. In general, if we talk about aggression. Two candidates are drawn: Russia (well, this is a classic) and Belarus (you can expect everything from dad).

    In general, you need to have a purely Estonian percent in the head in order to figure it out. Well, where did they get the idea that their army was combat-ready? And that the Ogressor’s army will climb to them in the same qualitative and quantitative composition? Guys, is it okay that the 21 century in the yard and jousting tournaments have been canceled?

    Your 4 Air Force super helicopter will not even have time to get up ...

    There is no doubt how the partisans of the Balts are historically ogogo, what's the point? In general, I hypothetically consider such a conflict as a funny doctrine for the calculations of "Grad" and "Buratino". In theory. Because no one has canceled the presence of Russian people there. Therefore, it turns out elusive Joe, who the fuck nobody needs.

    So all that remains is to clap your hands at the pragmatic Latvians who brazenly saw the NATO bablos on what they really need. GOOD FELLOWS !!! Some (I will not point a finger at the Estonian Ministry of Defense) could buy additional operatives in China, implant themselves in their heads and begin to think. What they sincerely and wish.

    Due to the lack of military aircraft in Estonia, after its entry into NATO, American F-16s were transferred. During a test flight over the country, the fighter, controlled by an experienced pilot, was never able to reach supersonic speed. (This is a real event.) It's just that when the supersonic barrier was broken, Estonia was already over. (Well, she is so little). But the fact remained a fact, and a record appeared in the documents of the military bloc: "... due to the specific features of the country, the F-16 fighter is not capable of developing maximum speed over Estonia"

    In 1920, after the occupation of Russian territory, part of the occupied territory of Estonia was transferred to Latvia, but for this it demanded Latvian territory in the area of ​​the city of Valka. As a result, the city was divided by the border along the river and the Estonian part of the city became known as Valga. So there are territorial claims between Estonia and Latvia.

    Why do they need an army, I won’t know. As long as they are sitting under the roof of NATO, you can save on the army, and send money to more tangible things. On the other hand, losing NATO defense money, but here is a dead end. They should receive money, and a comic army, rub points to officials for the existence of three powerful armies that keep the whole north-west of Russia at bay.

      For special forces - this is normal practice in almost the whole world. They supply you with a certain standard set, but everyone selects all sorts of whistles for himself, depending on preferences. In general, leon-iv correctly noticed that a certain budget is being laid down from the command for such independent purchases. Is there such a thing in Russia, I don’t know. A foreign friend who served in RM special forces said that they had official compensation for such expenses. It was only necessary to more or less clearly substantiate that you need this thing to perform combat missions. An iPhone at the expense of Her Majesty would not be allowed to buy, and a personal tank too)))

    Latvians are not such fools as the article writes about them. But quite the contrary.
    Thoughtfully studying the packing and figuring out how much, they drew the right conclusions:
    if Russia moves west, the Latvian army will hold out for a maximum of half an hour, and even then if the Russians deign to warn ahead of time about the impending offensive.
    if NATA moves east, Latvians will be at the forefront of attack and will be used as cannon fodder.
    In general, wherever you throw - everywhere a wedge. Therefore, well, nafig, this army. They hired a couple of thousand double basses to march in parades, and that's enough. And with the remaining money - really, why not buy a new bibika for the president? Let the person rejoice =)

The organization’s objectives are to support the Estonian Defense Union in the defense of the state, medical and rear services. The second organization reporting to the Estonian Defense Union is Noored kotkad. It is a voluntary organization made up of Boy Scouts. The objectives of the organization are the education and training of young people - Estonian citizens aged 8 to 18 years. The girls of the organization “Daughters of the Motherland” (Kodutütred), who subsequently become members of the Women's Defense at Home, are also involved in the defense of the country. The main goals pursued by these organizations are the patriotic education of the citizens of their country.

            I agree this is a disputed land, but the Balts do not climb there by force. But Russian people living in the Baltic states have one requirement - they need to know the state language.
            In the country of visitors to America, after all, no one demands the same status of their languages ​​with the state. Communicate among themselves in whatever languages ​​they want, but in state. institutions all speak English. And I, too, will not recall the occupation of the Baltic states in 1940.

                And whoever initiated this world was not Russia, though Bolshevik, but Russia is a subject of international law.

                And before that, in the early 1700s, in the colonial struggle with Sweden, the Russian Empire conquered the Baltic states.

                And in the end. Every nation has a craving for national identity. It was national identity that allowed Russia to get out of the Golden Horde yoke. Or now we will condemn the Great victory in the Kulikovo field. They say that the Russians spoke, would live under the rule of the Golden Horde. Would that be acceptable to you? Of course not. Likewise, it is unacceptable for the Balts to return again under someone else's power.

            Was in all three Baltic countries.
            He worked with both the Russian and the local population.
            I did not notice the tension between them.
            By the way, for Russians living there only in a nightmare they might dream of returning to Russia.
            The best friend 3 years ago married neither a Lithuanian and moved from Kaliningrad to Klaipeda. Learned the language will soon receive citizenship. In Kaliningrad, only to visit the elderly and quickly home and Klaipeda.

              "By the way, for the Russians living there only in a nightmare can dream of returning to Russia"
              Naturally, because there they have something - housing, work (if any). And in Russia, bureaucrats put a bolt on them, despite various programs for the resettlement of Russians from countries belonging to the USSR. Is there such a thing?
              "I did not notice the tension between them" - I noticed it back in the USSR. Naturally, these are not radical manifestations. At best, "polite cold". I admit that there are exceptions.
              I am not against the peoples of the Baltic states, as an ethnic group. I am against the soaring spirit of chauvinism.

    No one and nothing is threatening the Baltic states (unless, of course, they will not become greyhounds. And THEY WILL NOT BECOME!), They know this, and therefore they have such an army. Well, a mongrel barks to the East, because they are being tempted from the West, well, I’m getting into the electorate with my pseudo-construction of my defense capabilities. What is pop and such a parish. What a people is, such is its place in history and on the map. Their job is to slowly and sadly catch sprats.

    As Estonians and Latvians invincible armies bragged

    In case of war, the Baltic states will last a maximum of a day, and this is subject to the support of neighboring countries such as Scandinavia and Poland, which they do not understand for good ...

    but it’s interesting, who can just think of a thread about which war between the Baltic states is quite possible? oh no wonder hot Estonian guys criticize their no less ardent Latvian colleagues. by themselves, all three republics, in view of their microscopic nature, nor of any military resistance, will be able to provide. even with paramilitary organizations in addition. but if they unite in one Baltic state, and the time of resistance will increase from 1-5 minutes to an hour. that’s exactly how much time NATe needs to react. Since a provocation is needed to unleash a war, where is the guarantee that the skirmishers will not be Baltic? as an option. allegedly an attack by Belarusian troops on the territory of the Baltic states. followed by the entry of Russia into the war. why not an option?

    No, the Latvian army is stronger. They even have a tank. (T-55) For the past years, Estonians have been given exercises, but the year before last, the kurats tried to pinch it. With a scandal, but returned. The information is completely serious, without sneakers.

    Jackyun,
    Forty days ... The right time, may they rest in peace!

    I think that in NATO's plans 40 days are assigned based on these considerations. cunning main Europeans give Russians 40 days for everything about everything. if ours succeed, then the main Europeans will throw up their hands and say "what to do now", and if they do not succeed, they will give a few more days.

        If my sources are not mistaken, this T-55-AM tank, or something like that, maybe there are not enough numbers or letters.

        PS You can draw at least a hundred drawbacks to me, tell me the main thing for what, maybe I'm lying about Estonian tanks or guns? Do I need it? Schaub yes no wink ? request

        Watch the video carefully and to the end, there about Estonian missile forces, yes, you heard right, there are such (there are probably 10 people in them) ...

      redragor, thanks for the link, lying under the table for about 15 minutes from laughter. As I understand it, they also showed their Navy at this parade. Particularly impressed with the air defense - as many as two guns. wassat What year is this memory interesting.

      As I understand it, they do not bother with drill strides, and so that they keep up.
