Sergei Shoigu: Russian troops led away from the Ukrainian border

41
As the ITAR-TASSOn April 28, a “detailed” telephone conversation took place between Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel, in which the tense situation in Ukraine was discussed.


“In a frank manner, the two sides exchanged concerns over the tense situation in Ukraine. We discussed the problem situations arising in this connection, connected both with the actions of the American armed forces near the Russian borders and with the general activation of NATO military activities in Eastern Europe. The ministers also exchanged views on ways of a possible reduction of military tensions in the region ", - reported press service of the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

The Russian minister called the “unprecedented” increase in the activity of the armed forces of NATO and the United States in Eastern Europe near the borders of Russia, noting that this is happening against the background of the “provocative statements” by the NATO Secretary General on the need to "contain Russia".

In turn, Hagel explained the actions of Brussels and Washington to “extreme concern” with the situation that had arisen around Ukraine. He noted that the actions of the alliance do not have a “provocative or expansionist” character, they merely demonstrate “bloc unity and an increase in the defensive capabilities of the allies.”

Sergei Shoigu strongly denied the "baseless allegations of the presence on Russian territory of Russian sabotage and reconnaissance groups, allegedly destabilizing the situation in the south-eastern regions."

“The prospect of harsh power actions against the civilian population,” noted Shoigu. - forced the Russian side to announce the start of large-scale military exercises on the national territory in the regions adjacent to the borders with Ukraine. This decision was made public. ”

The minister also said that when the Kiev authorities declared that they would not use the army against unarmed citizens, the Russian troops returned to their places of permanent deployment.

According to Shoigu, before the start of the exercises, the Kiev authorities concentrated on the south-east of the country a military group of 15 thousand, under the pretext of “fighting terrorism”.

The Russian Defense Minister confirmed “readiness for contacts with all interested parties in order to de-escalate tensions”.

      They were taken to the line of concentration before deploying on the offensive - 40-60 km from the border. The deployment itself seems to have already worked out.

      But are we not bending? Where is our response to sanctions? after all, the Americans regard our silence as weakness! When they beat you have to answer! And it hurts to answer! Not a ban on the entry of some clowns! Need to embed in their money! For the supply of rare metals! By NASA! Only serve the ISS! To expand the supply of arms and air defense systems around the world! Close NATO traffic in the Russian Federation and pay the Taliban for activation in Pakistan!
      Yes, a lot of things can be done!
      The main thing is to show that we are not whipping boys, but a Power!
      And stop chatting with them!
      Take a break at the diplomatic level and let them be marked in a panic!

        As for the ISS, the Americans are already asking for a response. And the reason for the withdrawal of troops had to be made to reduce tensions in their "independent" press. As it follows from their press that we are already marching almost along the streets of Slavyansk and Kiev.

Moreover, we’ve already trained, next time deployment will be even faster ... And the negotiations - we are still a civilized country, you can talk for a start, and then on the scoreboard angry

      If before the first violation so there are already a lot of them from the moment of this conversation !!!! It is enough to take as a basis the Geneva agreements which the junta, under the auspices of the State Department and the EU, makes systematically and consciously every day !! In other matters, promising this does not mean getting married !!! Mattresses with their pack also promise a lot of things !!!

        The more recent, last but one warnings, the less our responsibility for the introduction of troops, if any.

        I think that the East itself will deal with its problems. The Ukrainian economy has already collapsed, but has not reached the earth. That's as soon as ... no troops are needed. The miners will take Kalash and drive all the Svobodovites and law enforcement officers into their burrows. And there you will see ...

      What promises can there be. The Americans say "let's destroy the missiles," and they themselves immediately rivet new ones, they say we won't build up the missile defense defense so as not to escalate the arms race, but they themselves are immediately installing new systems in Europe. Faith them not a dime.

He noted that the actions of the alliance do not have a" provocative or expansionist "character, they only demonstrate" bloc unity and an increase in the defensive capabilities of the allies. " . "

    And Russia is demonstrating its increased abilities and declares that it will not allow anyone to play the game "Come on, take it away" with it.

    "On 26.04.2014/24/XNUMX, the next launch of the RS-XNUMX YARS intercontinental missile from the Kapustin Yar test site was carried out as part of the Strategic Missile Forces military exercises.
    The missile was supposed to cover the distance in 9 000 km in less than 2 hours. The missile did its job perfectly, but the missile’s flight course officially failed, the missile moved toward the continent of North America, the target is the United States.

    As stated at the Pentagon: Russia was trying to provoke the states into military action that would lead to irreparable.

    US air defense could not take the RS-24 on target even when the missile was less than 2000 km from the country. When the rocket approached a distance of about 500 km, it changed course and flew towards Argentina.

    The Russian Defense Ministry commented on this situation as "A slight misalignment of the missile's flight path, moreover, it was absolutely safe and did not contain an explosive base."

    The Pentagon called Russia's actions provocative and recalled that Russian missiles never gave such failures, not taking into account the Bulava missile, and that they do not believe in the accident of all this.
    Let us remind you that this is not the first time that the United States has been unable to ensure its security, in particular the recent case in the Black Sea, when a Russian Su-24 bomber with the support of a radio-electronic warfare system opposed the American missile destroyer Donald Cook.

      Some nonsense for 500 km. the rocket changed course and flew to Argentina. AU, Arentina are you alive ???
      Since when, a ballistic missile begins to fly as she wants. As I know, a ballistic missile goes into space, from there it enters the atmosphere along an oblique trajectory, in the future the divided warheads maneuver and go towards their goals.
      My guess is that it flew Novodvorskaya with Nemtsov on a broomstick for grants. But along the way they lost their course, as at Novodvorskaya the glasses were misted.

      Well, yes, the exercises are divided into military and not very. And the rocket was kind of leisurely - instead of the prescribed 30 minutes I decided to hold on ...
      US air defense could not take the RS-24 on target even when the missile was less than 2000 km from the country. When the rocket approached a distance of about 500 km, it changed course and flew towards Argentina.

      This funny thing seemed to fly in Airbus mode, either approaching the United States, or changing its mind about doing it.
      That the warhead did not fall as it should be from above along the ballistic trajectory - do not go to the grandmother. wink

    Cynicism crosses borders.
    I just calmed down - ours stopped answering calls from Washington, and there is such a conversation.
    "We have withdrawn our troops from the Ukrainian border"
    What about NATO? No, it only strengthens.
    The Ukrainians are camped a few kilometers from our border (15 thousand with tanks and "Smerchami") is that bl ... not a threat and a reason to deploy a similar group there.
    Again we give slack. It turns out only throat. What is the matter, I do not understand.

    I have a friend, she told me how her aunt, an elderly person, fell into senile insanity. At first, she began to think that someone would take over her apartment. She began to hide the keys, then open the water in the taps and plug the drain with corks and rags so that after the flooding the "enemy" would not get anything. They began to follow her, then she accused all those close to her that they wanted her dead. She stopped talking to everyone, and tore up the will written twenty years ago. Persuasion, pills - nothing helped. It all ended with the fact that the relatives barely managed to prevent the transfer of the apartment to a certain "social worker", who got into the trust of a sick aunt.
    The USA and the West, together with the notorious Ukraine, are like that sick aunt, I thought at first. But then, discarding "family" feelings, I realized that the local leaders and part of the people of these countries are all the same invaders that in 1941, under the leadership of the possessed Fuhrer, invaded the territory of Russia. They have no leniency and forgiveness. But their heads are clearly not all right.

    Recall that this is not the first time that the United States is unable to ensure its security, in particular the recent case in the Black Sea, when the Russian Su-24 bomber with the support of the radio-electronic warfare system opposed the American missile destroyer Donald Cook.

    The Su-24 using the EW system created irresistible obstacles to the radars and the guidance system of the destroyer, after which for more than an hour it simulated a combat attack, approaching the destroyer at 100 meters.

    The world arms race will always remain with us, said Chuck Heigl, but today we see something else. The United States began to show its weakness and helplessness.

    Hard trolling. If this is all true, then 5 points.

    Why concessions. The troops were nominated in connection with the so-called ATO with the participation of army units. The ATO was stopped, and the troops JACOB were taken away from the border.
    And as I understand it, the times of our unilateral concessions are already in the past. HOPE FOREVER.
