NATO's largest military exercises ended in Eastern Europe

The largest since the beginning of the century NATO military exercises Steadfast Jazz ended today in Eastern Europe. The exercises were held on 11 test sites in Poland and the Baltic countries with participation of over 6 thousands of military, 350 armored vehicles, 13 ships and more 50 aircraft and helicopters. In the command and command part of the exercise, field staffs 8 took part.


Philip Breedlove, Supreme Commander of NATO Combined Armed Forces in Europe, stated that all the exercises' tasks were successfully accomplished, and Brunysum, who led the maneuvers of NATO Joint Forces Headquarters, will be certified to command the 2014 Rotation Alliance Response Force.

Commenting on the course of the exercises, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told ITAR-TASS that these maneuvers "are not directed against Russia."
“We did what the military should do - we trained and tested our capabilities,” Rasmussen explained. “We are working to increase the ability of the alliance’s forces to work effectively together.”

He also did not rule out that in the future Russia and NATO could jointly conduct military maneuvers. "Why not?" - he said. Rasmussen "highly appreciated" the fact that Russian observers were present at the demonstration phase of the exercise, just as NATO observers visited the Russian-Belarusian "West-2013" maneuvers in September of this year.

“They saw everything with their own eyes. I expect that after these exercises we will have a discussion in the Russia-NATO Council on how we can develop this level of transparency. Since transparency and predictability are the best way to overcome possible misunderstandings and misinterpretations each other’s actions, ”Rasmussen concluded.

In turn, the head of the delegation of the Russian General Staff, who visited the demonstration part of the exercises, expressed gratitude to the NATO leadership for inviting these maneuvers. "This is a useful experience. The opportunity to see elements of the combat training of the forces of the alliance, ensuring interaction between contingents of different states, is certainly of interest," he said.

“Inviting observers to each other’s teachings contributes to increased military transparency and trust between us,” he said, recalling that Russia “gave NATO representatives the opportunity to see the West-2013 exercises in September.”

"Of course, we, the military, consider these alliance exercises exclusively from a military point of view, without affecting any political aspects," he concluded.

Teachings "Stadfast Jazz" opened a new page in stories NATO - a return to the practice of major military maneuvers in Europe. According to available information, the alliance has already begun planning the 2015 exercises of the year in Spain, Italy and Portugal, in which 30-40 thousands of military can take part.

This is due to the fact that in 2014, the alliance must completely complete the withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan, the war in which served, in particular, as the most important factor in the combat training of NATO military. In peacetime, this organization needs major exercises to maintain the ability of the military countries of the alliance to effectively interact with each other. In addition, the program of these exercises should become the ideological core of the future development of NATO, without which a military alliance in peacetime and in the absence of a potential adversary could lose the meaning of its existence.

      Yes, it would be better if they withdrew from NATO and created a united European army, in which the basis was - the troops of rapid re-engagement. And they would not interfere with their troops in the adventures of the United States in the Middle East and in other parts of the world.
      If the borders of Europe are not threatened, then there is nothing to interrupt somewhere there.

      I think Europe would be able to save billions.

      And it also "seems" to me that such a concentration in a heap raises some questions. It is so fashionable now, or dispersal in a radius of 3-5 meters is considered unacceptable today. How about the death of several at once from flying through a heavy and not immediately stuck. And the ability to maneuver and choose exactly your position, which will improve the efficiency and survivability of the group. Although I don't care .... the main thing is that ours do not step on this rake. Oh yes, flags, Poles ...

    An indicative description of maneuvers in a Polish newspaper, translation into InoSMI.


    Asterix and Obelix on exercises
    Lapping allies to each other could not do without national stereotypes. The French, who exhibited one of the largest contingents, followed the example of Asterix and Obelix and built themselves a separate fenced camp. Unfortunately, they had too high hopes for barbed wire. In the first week of their stay on Polish soil, they lost several electronic devices. Incredibly sweet major Benoit Deltour, responsible for French logistics, assured that it was their own fault, and the same would have happened in France. However, his words did not sound too convincing. Just in case, the French tents were moved away from the fence and illuminated with additional searchlights, and around the camp they put sentries with weapons.
    However, the complete independence of the French camp was violated due to a sink for heavy equipment, which (for aesthetic reasons) the Americans and (for technical reasons) Poles wanted to use. In the end, through negotiation and easy blackmail, the French managed to persuade to open the doors for visitors. On occasion, it turned out that in their dining room you can eat a typical French lunch of ingredients that were 98% brought from France. Military of other nationalities are very interested in her. French breakfast (toast, jam, yogurt, coffee), maybe they attracted less, but in the same tent there was free internet, and from 18 to 22 - beer. During the exercises, the French even opened a duty-free shop, which hit French cigarettes and Polish beer. Military of other nationalities do not formally drink alcohol in maneuvers, but some of them showed an amazing orientation in the names of local brands of alcoholic beverages.
    Those who could not get to the French dinners remained Polish. In the highest echelons of power, it was decided that for the duration of the exercises, the daily amount for one person’s food will be 26,70 zlotys (about 270 rubles, approx. Per.). With a collective kitchen, you can already turn around for such an amount. The Poles decided to demonstrate all the richness of Polish tastes. Americans quickly disappeared from the dining room. The Poles thought that the whole thing was in bigos, which the Yankees dubbed "polish poison", learning that it was made from sauerkraut, that is, according to their ideas, spoiled cabbage. As a result of a two-day investigation, it turned out that the matter was not in bigos. Few Americans came, but they brought with them a whole container of mineral water and a professional laboratory. After examining the local water, they found that by American standards, there was too little chlorine in it. In the end, after the summit talks, overseas soldiers returned to the dining room

    I have to add that these were not NATO exercises, they were exercises of NATO and the Nordic countries (Sweden, Finland). Now there is a powerful pressure on these countries in order to drag them into NATO.
    Part of the scenario was an attempt to quickly liberate the Estonian island of Hiiumaa, captured, attention, not by terrorists, but by a neighboring state. The failure of this expedition was recognized, due to the impossibility of organizing a quick transfer of the necessary forces and means to the theater of Hiiumaa. Conclusions ... there are two of them.
    1. There must be a NATO expeditionary force in the territory of this theater of operations;
    2. Sweden and Finland should become part of the forces responsible for this theater.
    According to the scenario, for fools, Father Hiiumaa was captured by the neighboring state ... Finland ... This is to the word of Rasmussen that this is not against Russia. Which neighboring state is Estonia not friendly with and where can aggression be expected from? Only Russia.

    Regarding, against whom are friends, and what is the focus of the exercises:
    = NATO has fulfilled the scenario of full-scale hostilities against Russia.
    A large-scale NATO exercise "Strong Jazz 2013" has ended in Europe, the active phase of which took place in Poland and the Baltic countries. Intelligence analysts have yet to put together a mosaic of these unprecedented operational activities of the North Atlantic Alliance near Russian borders in order to understand their true goals and objectives, but some conclusions based on the available facts can be drawn today.

    Russia is still seen in NATO as the main adversary. The activities of the combat and operational training of the NATO Allied Forces are aimed at developing and improving the methods of planning and conducting military operations against the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

    In particular, during the Strong Jazz 2013 exercise, the relevant NATO plans provided that in the event of a real military conflict with Russia, the alliance should be ready to address the following combat missions:

    - striking with high-precision weapons of destruction in conventional equipment according to the command post system of the headquarters of the Western military district, the headquarters of the Baltic Fleet, the headquarters of the 6th combined arms army;
    - striking with high-precision weapons of conventional destruction on the airfield network of the Western Military District, as well as on highways to prevent the transfer of additional contingents of Russian troops to the area of ​​armed conflict;
    - blocking and destruction of the ships of the Baltic Fleet in the main naval base in Baltiysk;
    - information operations in the Russian segment of social networks with the aim of undermining the morale of the population, spreading panic and chaos, undermining confidence in government bodies and government, as well as disrupting mobilization events;
    - throwing sabotage and reconnaissance groups into the territory of the Kaliningrad, Pskov, Novgorod, Leningrad regions in order to search and destroy the objects of the 12th Main Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, deployed by the OTRK, and other targets that are of primary danger to the alliance;
    - reconnaissance of the Russian air defense system in the North-West of Russia, the destruction of its forces and assets in the flight range of the NATO Air Force and in the combat zone, electronic suppression of the air defense control system;
    - delivering a tactical nuclear strike against deployed groups of Russian troops (in particular, at the 26th missile brigade after it received special ammunition). =

      The superpower, with 1,4 million people in the army, sent 100 soldiers with SUVs to Poland. On the other hand, the Estonian armed forces, which number only three thousand people (professionals and conscripts), Estonia sent almost twice as many soldiers to the Steadfast Jazz as the Americans. The Danes sent five people, Slovenes four. http://www.warandpeace.ru/ru/analysis/view/85171/

      The Americans began to seize the toilets, flagging them with their flag, to which other, not so large states nervously reacted. As a result, a ban was imposed on flagging toilets with flags.

    An FSB officer came to the school, such as to test his readiness to repel a terrorist attack. Naturally, without warning anyone in advance, I went to school with a yellow bag with a fake bomb in it, walked past the security guard, wandered the floors, went down again, and left the package right next to the security guard ...
    Finding out that the school doesn’t absolutely care about the potential terrorist attack,
    The FSB Schnick went on a spree to management.
    And while he was walking, the package with the "bomb" slept safely ...
    Now the whole school, together with the FSB, is looking for an accountable device =)))

      At the international conference on combating terrorism, UN experts decided to conduct an experiment - how security is in different countries. They made a fake bomb: they took a suitcase, pushed inside the bricks, added a mechanical alarm clock (Schaub ticked) and brought out a red LED (Schaub blinked).
      We flew to Washington, put the suitcase next to the White House, just went around the corner - a bunch of agents came running, the suitcase was surrounded by armored shields, sappers, police officers, firemen came in large numbers ... within a radius of 100 miles, all citizens of the "Muslim" were detained and thrown into the FBI dungeons appearance, Barack Obama made an angry speech on TV, after which a couple of AUG on duty headed for the Persian Gulf. It started, in general.
      We flew to London, set a suitcase in the vicinity of Westminster Abbey. 10 minutes, 20, half an hour ... finally a constable came up, thoughtfully examined the suitcase, consulted with someone on the phone ... in the end, the sappers arrived, took the "bomb", the next day patriotic articles appeared in the press, in London a series of rallies took place and several mosques were burned down.
      Arrived in Berlin, put a suitcase opposite the Reichstag. 10 minutes, half an hour, an hour ... There is a suitcase. Finally, an hour later an elderly burgher came up, took a suitcase and took it to the lost property office.
      We arrived in Moscow, set a "bomb" near the Mausoleum. They wait an hour, two, three, half a day ... in the late afternoon, a passing policeman accidentally stumbled over a suitcase, cursed, shook his head sadly - a disorder, they say, lifted the suitcase and threw it into the nearest trash can.
      And finally, for the sake of interest, we decided to "mine" the Potemkin Stairs. We arrived in Odessa, approached the Bronze Duke ... oops! And there is nothing to mine - the suitcase, it turns out, is still sleeping at the station ... dili :)
