USA: Russia has increased its military presence in Latin America

USA: Russia has increased its military presence in Latin AmericaRussia's military presence in Latin America has increased significantly, General John Kelly, who heads the US Southern Command, said at a hearing in the Senate Armed Services Committee.


“Russia is developing activity in the region, working with countries that for various reasons cannot cooperate with the United States. First of all, it concerns the fight against drug trafficking, ”he said.

In particular, according to him, “the Russians have sent long-range bombers there, which they have not done for many years,” ITAR-TASS reports.

Kelly also recalled that "Russia has not sent its warships to the Caribbean since 2008 of the year."

“About six months ago a group of three ships was sent there. Two of them are still there, two more are on the way, ”he said.

According to the American general, Russia "is working out those strata that the United States cannot work."

“The Russians are doing quite well in terms of increasing their influence,” he believes.

Recall that in November last year, the Parliament of Nicaragua ratified the decision taken by the government of the country, allowing Russian military units, ships and aircraft to visit the republic during the first half of 2014 year. This will be held in the framework of the “exchange of experience and training” of military personnel of the Central American Republic.

In addition, the Parliament of Nicaragua approved the participation of the Russian military in patrolling the territorial waters of the republic in the Caribbean and the Pacific together with the Nicaraguan army from January 1 to June 30 next year. The main objective of these operations is to combat drug smuggling.

            The British were overestimated, the Germans underestimated. The budget figures were surprised, I don’t think that European countries have such amounts, apparently somewhere someone was miscalculated.

    We are waiting for the appearance of "polite people" near the American military bases, then at the US borders. Let them hand over their weapons to the warehouse in advance and go home.

    A Russian warship docked in the port of Cuban capital Havana, without statements from the leadership of Liberty Island.
    Medium reconnaissance ship Viktor Leonov anchored in the port of Havana near the Church of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, the Russian courier said on Thursday, February 27.
    Cuba is my love
    The Island of Dawn is Crimson.
    A song flies over a planet ringing -
    Cuba is my love!

    Russia was written off early! You can't take us unceremoniously, they know they'll snatch us out in full. Of course, our forces outside the country are still "a drop in the ocean", but as we see, waves are coming from the drop too! When the enemy is nervous, they make mistakes! We must use them wisely!

    According to the American general, Russia "is working out those strata that the United States cannot work."

    It's only the beginning. Then we will begin to divide the spheres of influence
    “The Russians are doing quite well in terms of increasing their influence,” he believes.

    pent-up admiration for a non-political adversary. maybe catch up on the service shlopotat
    The escalation of the situation in the area that the enemy considers a priori his own and controlled is the most sensitive for him and is an effective lever of influence on him

    Did the general with arithmetic disagree or did I understand something wrong? I was always sure that 2 + 2 = 4, and not 3. Even with regard to Russian ships. wassat

    Well, who else does not understand? Do you want to coexist peacefully behave with dignity. From a position of strength, you will not achieve anything. The hunchback-Yeltsinoid treacherous period ended. Think.

    “Russia is developing activity in the region, working with countries that, for various reasons, cannot cooperate with the United States. First of all, it concerns the fight against the spread of drugs ”
    He laughed ... Russia covers the countries where the drug business is booming ...
    When the USSR was in Afghanistan, the flow of drugs from this region decreased significantly.
    The United States came with NATO .. ​​drugs just overwhelmed the world, how to explain?
