Military Review

Russia is gaining strength ("Star gazete", Turkey)

Russia is gaining strength ("Star gazete", Turkey)If we evaluate the events in Egypt or Syria independently of other events taking place in the world, then only one-sided conclusions can be made. Meanwhile, the fate of the Middle East will be determined by current events in the Far East, and the situation in this region is gradually heating up.


During the week, Russia holds large-scale military exercises in a region called Eastern Siberia and the Russian Far East. In Eastern Siberia, there is a Russian-Chinese border, the Far East of Russia implies a neighborhood with the Pacific Coast, the Bering Strait, and the Sea of ​​Japan. In other words, this is a geopolitically important space.

The exercises are conducted with the involvement of thousands of military personnel, 160 warships, 70 military aircraft and helicopters. This kind of large-scale maneuvers in the 160 year are held for the third time. In particular, in March of this year, the exercises took place on the Black Sea coast, and 2013 thousands of military personnel and 7 military ships took part in them.

The formulation of the purpose of the exercises is always the same: verification of the operational readiness of the Russian armed forces. Needless to say, it does not mention a military play with the aim of threatening or intimidating its neighbors. However, no matter what, when conducting such large-scale inspections, it seems unlikely that they carry a peace-loving message.

Gaining army

The Russian army, starting with the 1998 year, headed for accelerated modernization. From 2011 to 2020, about 470 billion euros are expected to be spent on military needs and to upgrade military equipment by 70%. Updated connections are deployed in the Far East of Russia; In the Pacific Ocean, the multipurpose nuclear and other nuclear and diesel submarines, commissioned in 2012, are based. Recall that Russia is not the only country that has a super-modern nuclear submarine in the Pacific; the ocean is boiling.

It is difficult to say whether nostalgia for the former Red Army persisted in Russia, but the power achieved today and the form of its presentation through exercises makes us think about nostalgia for the years of the Cold War.

It is important what one-by-one checks say to neighboring countries and the world. However, another issue that is at least as significant is the large-scale and powerful control of the army. Putin stated that the purpose of the exercises is also to check the progress of combat missions. If the Russian leader is worried about the restoration of Russia's former influence, it is necessary, on the one hand, to strengthen the armed forces, and on the other, to control this gaining army.

Threat to neighbors

It can be assumed that the teachings primarily imply a threat to China. Although an agreement was concluded between the two countries in 2004, and Russia shared information about the exercises with the People's Republic of China, and also held joint maneuvers called “Sea Interaction - 2013”, the current exercises held extremely close to the Russian-Chinese border of 4300 kilometers, possibly worry Beijing.

At the same time, it seems more rational to assert that the message of the exercises is in fact addressed to Japan and the USA, since their most active phases are conducted in the Sakhalin and Kuril Islands region. These islands belonged to Japan, but following the results of the Second World War, they moved to Russia. Japan wants to return the islands, and Russia - to "sell." And he calls such a high price that Japan is unable to buy them; besides, she does not want to pay for what belongs to her.

Another dimension of the issue is Russia's military focus on the Japan-South Korea-US axis. If we add the Bering Strait to this puzzle, we can assume that the teachings are sending almost a direct message to the United States.

Russia clearly decided to return to the zones of former influence. It will not leave either Syria, or Central Asia, or its own Far East. If the United States does not call the events in Egypt a coup and does not condemn them, it is perhaps because they are watching the Far East with one eye.

    In principle, everything is correctly written. Only one amendment: the message of the teachings is directed equally to everyone - the United States, Japan, China and Europe at the same time. According to the last paragraph: I amused the author's passage Russia "will not leave either Syria, or Central Asia, or its (!) Far East." And the US does not call the coup in Egypt a coup for another reason.

      That's right, except for just the thought that "Japan does not want to pay for what belongs to her." To clarify, he thinks he belongs. Only her thoughts and existing reality do not coincide with each other.

        Japan wants the islands back and Russia - to "sell". And he calls such a high price that Japan is not able to buy them; besides, she doesn’t want to pay for what belongs to her.

        That's just for this, you can put a huge disappointment on this Turkish "anal" ...

      This nifiga does not belong to her, the Kuril Islands were part of the Russian Empire, then during the Russian-Japanese (1904-1905) WE (I want to emphasize) lost them, and then returned to 1945 YOURS !!!

        the message of the exercises is actually addressed to Japan and the USA, since their most active phases are carried out in the Sakhalin region and the Kuril Islands.

        What makes it difficult to conduct exercises in the western, northern or southern direction?
        We look wider ... This is a message to the West! Who already understood what was happening ...
        Although it comes to "him" like a duck ...

      This article states that a strike will require hundreds of aircraft, several ships and submarines, and all this will be very expensive.

      According to the military leader, such strikes will require hundreds of aircraft, ships, submarines and other means, and the costs will be in the billions. "The effect will be to significantly weaken the regime and increase desertion. There is a risk that the regime can withstand limited attacks by dispersing its forces. Retaliation attacks are also possible," Dempsey said.
      He also added that the establishment of a no-fly zone in Syria will cost the United States an average of $ 500 billion per month. "Estimated costs - $ XNUMX million initially, with an average of $ XNUMX billion per month for the year."
      According to the military leader, the establishment of a no-fly zone will almost completely deprive the regime of the opportunity to bomb opposition strongholds and supply its troops by air. "Risks include the loss of an American aircraft, which will require a rescue force. In addition, it may not be possible to end the violence and turn the tide, as the regime relies mainly on ground forces - mortars, artillery and missiles," Dempsey said. ...


      As for the article, it’s a sin for Turkey to complain about us, they themselves are very energetically arming themselves.

    The exercises (in my opinion) were carried out in order to "wake up" the local military commanders, otherwise they do not do anything except paperwork for many years. What could be the axis of South Korea, Japan, but at least someone. In the Far East, even locals can get lost, not to mention all of the above. Distances of 1500 km without settlements are considered not scary. To all this, climatic conditions, terrain, lack of roads. There are villages where there is no road, in the cold along the winter road, in the summer along the water, at the crossroads one horse passes through the pass without a cart, there is no light. Which axis?

    With what cabbage did it "belong to Japan"? In 1875, Russia handed over to Japan the Northern Kuriles belonging to it (Russia), acquiring in return the right to the Japanese part of Sakhalin. And only then, in 1905, she lost Sakhalin as a result of defeat in the war.
    So, everything is absolutely comparable: Russia lost land as a result of defeat, then returned as a result of victory. And do not turn upside down!

    - although large maneuvers, but these are just exercises of Russian troops on their territory and on their shores. It has nothing to do with the plan prepared by the Americans for strikes against important targets in Syria! Nothing hints at a threat like the one that the Americans demonstrated with exercises near North Korea! This scribe would compare the number of exercises and "practical exercises" conducted by the army of their masters.

    On their own people are not judged. They can’t understand in any way that Russia is building muscles not for captures, but to defend its own, originally belonging to it.
    It is difficult to say whether nostalgia for the former Red Army has survived in Russia, but the power achieved today and the form of its presentation through exercises makes us think about nostalgia for the years of the Cold War

    And what about the Cold War? It, in fact, did not stop. It's just that the process is akin to recovering from a serious illness. There are a lot of ulcers and ulcers, but the muscles are gradually growing and you can confidently stand up for yourself. Well, apot, maybe it’s also like this:
    “Do not hope that once you take advantage of Russia's weakness, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come, don’t rely on the Jesuit agreements you signed that supposedly justify you. They are not worth the paper on which they are written.

About the fact that this people gradually ousted the indigenous population from the territory of external Turkey? Privatized places of worship? Akkupirov's huge territory? About the fact that today's Turkey is in a state of collapse and may soon lose Cyprus and even Istanbul? About the fact that the Kurdish regions will definitely go to Kurdistan and Turkey itself will need to be looked for on the maps using a microscope? Or - about the fact that this journalist lives in Turkey - it is bad and in one second he can be made a beggar by being kicked out of his job. So they appear in the Turkish "people" - super ideas - like - ancestral home - Altai and the Turkish land - that's all you know. Hysterical logic of ordinary Semitic origin.

Russians have fought almost incessantly since the beginning of the 20th century. In 1945 it was enough. Geopolitically, Putin is handsome. There is nothing to say. China - Taiwan. And the vector is to the south. What about us? Here you sit and think. Personally, I like the Japanese islands. As for the Americans, having a good own resource and, most importantly, industrial base in the person of China, Putin can be safely "hammered". Which is exactly what he does.

    So far, everyone is talking about the teachings and publications in the Turkish press of some poor fellow - the Americans have cleaned up the Middle East. And - tightly. Egypt is no longer American and the saddest thing for the Yankees is secular. And this means that there is nothing to manipulate. And there’s no one to fight. All.
    If Putin wants to, then the situation will be completely and irrevocably controlled by him. In the event of real attacks from Israel and the United States, Syria and Iran will receive the most advanced air defense systems and tactical missiles within XNUMX hours.
    So what lies ahead is the formation of new states in the Middle East and the radical reorientation of resource flows.
    It is clear that the events are planned and implemented every second, but one thing is clear - the world will never be the same as it was a year ago.
    everyone has already understood that a "big razderban" is brewing in the east. And the United States is no longer in business here.

    The original source clearly confuses something that Russia wants sell South Kuril Islands of Japan. I do not believe him. As far as I remember Putin's words, he made it clear that Japan did not see these islands as their ears. The sale of their territories is (I’m not afraid of the word) treason to the motherland, betrayal. The territorial integrity of the state is the strategic task of each guarantor of the constitution, that is, the president and his government. There was a hint from his side that are possible negotiations on joint development of these territories and nothing more, but that's another topic. This is not a sale.

    The article is full of vile lies, for example, about the price of islands allegedly declared by Russia. Reading people immediately immediately subconsciously suspect the leadership of Russia. This Turkish is not so simple. Well, the background on which such articles appear is pleasing, this is a clear fear in the West, mixed with hatred for the gaining power of Russia.

    Turks are ugly people! But their army is not bad, and therefore such a neighbor’s reaction is very pleasant. I don’t like everything that is happening in Russia, but in terms of foreign policy I am for it with both hands!

    Everything is normal, the more teachings the more they will be worn out. And for many years Japan has been blathering about the islands, but they can’t rock the boat, the gut is thin, so they are crazy. Putin had already given them a harsh answer, and there was not even a rumor of propredation. Let the Turks understand at home now they are not up to us. good

    Russia would regain its military greatness ... and force itself to respect all sorts of American mongrels .... and even the Americans themselves, mired in their own showdowns. The greatness of the States was thrust into the consciousness of the world community by their Hollywood films ... and wars with countries on a scale comparable to Fr. Easter.....

    In the world, only one truly Great Power is RUSSIA !!!!

    Russian military forbidden to rest in Israel

    publication time: 10: 52
    last update: 12: 51





    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has banned the military and civilian personnel of the Ministry of Defense who have access to classified materials from rest in Israel. The Izvestia newspaper writes about this with reference to a source in the Russian general staff.

    The source said that the list of countries where employees familiar with classified information can travel to is determined by the directive of the chief of staff. The current list has expanded, but Israel and Egypt have disappeared from it. The reason for the decision, allegedly, is the turbulent military-political situation in these countries.

    The publication cites the vice president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems Konstantin Sivkov, according to whom the decision of the command is justified. He believes that in Israel, people familiar with Russian secrets can be abducted by militants.

    Sivkov is convinced that with the help of torture or modern psychotropic drugs, extremists can find out all the secrets from captured Russians. He noted that the Russian military should also not travel to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Syria, Libya and the United States.

    In the list of countries allowed for recreation, approved by the Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov, 39 states. It does not have the USA, Germany, Great Britain, China and Japan, but from the former Soviet republics - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Georgia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan.

      It is right. Secret carriers have nothing to do in Russia’s unfriendly states.

    In the place of the West, I would listen to the Turks. There was once the most powerful Ottoman Empire, in comparison with which the current States are just a mongrel. This Empire got in touch with Russia and now it is just Turkey.
    The same thing happened with the once mighty Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, which is now just Poland, with the once invincible Sweden, which after the wars with Russia is now always neutral, and with Germany, it certainly remains a super-country, but certainly not militarily .
    I would have thought deeply over these statistics of strange coincidences in the place of our enemies

    The article is so-so, either the Turks (which is unlikely), or they want to expose Russia's "imperial ambitions" for show. To scare the public so to speak. Put a minus.

    Interesting ... With EBN, or GDP ..? The EBN, in its time of 3,14zdzai’s kindness, wanted to give them two islands (for signing a peace treaty) - THEY did not want to, and now they are unlikely to receive anything from GDP.

    She will not leave Syria, nor Central Asia, nor her Far East.
    , the author gave a blunder ... He can only leave his own. And Turkey and its Kurds are an example ... Russia will give a head start ... Keep it up ...
