The threat of Russia in the Baltic strategic direction


The whole world, including the citizens of Russia, see the war in Libya every day in the news programs, although the NATO countries there used relatively small strike forces - 150-200 airplanes, plus a group of naval forces, most of which are engaged in blocking and do not conduct military operations.


But few people in Russia know that on the Baltic strategic direction, NATO and allied states of the North Atlantic bloc deploy a much greater striking power, although officially NATO and the Russian Federation are not enemies and even allies, for example, cooperate in Afghanistan. In addition, these forces regularly work out mostly offensive actions, conduct exercises, preparing for a large-scale war. Although, I repeat, there is no potential adversary, with the exception of the fairly dilapidated forces of Russia, in this direction, all countries are members of NATO or the European Union, and actively cooperate with London and Washington.

Neighbors of the Russian Federation on the Baltic direction

In fact, all Russia's neighbors in this area, thank God, except for Belarus (as long as they haven’t made a “color revolution” and planted an analogue of Saakashvili-Yushchenko), they have claims against us, some countries openly express them. And it is quite clear that all of them - Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Norway, can participate in the war with the Russian Federation. The elites of these countries are Russophobic, as in Poland, Latvia, Estonia, or coldly neutral. Speaking about the danger of neighborhood with the Russian Federation from these countries are heard regularly, for example, in 2007, speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, the Minister of Defense of Finland Jüri Häkämijes said that the three main threats to the security of Finland are Russia, Russia and again . And his opinion in Finland is shared by many politicians and public figures. The Russian threat is regularly stated in Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, this topic has become particularly acute in connection with the August 2008 war. In addition, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway expressed doubts as to whether the NATO bloc could protect them if anything happened. Latvia, Estonia and Finland have territorial claims to the Russian Federation (which are not clearly pronounced so far, but what is worth warming them up ?!) for a reason for war. The hysteria was raised during the joint exercises of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus “West-2009”, in the mind of the inhabitant in the Baltic countries, Poland formed a full-fledged image of “threat from the East”.

Germany remains the most adequate neighbor in this area, although we have a “rich” experience of wars with it. In Berlin, they are not hysterical about the Russian threat, the Germans have almost no Russophobic sentiment, some alarmists are not noticeable.

Finland and Sweden are increasingly inclined to think about joining NATO, so Sweden, a neutral country, has become a participant in the war against Libya. Moreover, the army of Sweden is not a “reinforcement” of NATO in the form of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (entered NATO in 2004), it is one, though not the largest, of the most combat-ready armies of Europe, a state with powerful military-industrial complex, a leader in a number of military areas, for example, NAV.

In addition, in this direction, a “northern mini-NATO” is being formed against Russia in order to counter the interests of the Russian Federation in the Arctic region. In January, the North European Summit opened in London under the chairmanship of England, and its participants were the United Kingdom, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

Only the latest military exercises

- 4-8 on April 2011 of the year in the Baltic region together with the leadership of the European command of the US armed forces and the strike force NATO (Strike Force NATO) held a command post exercise "Baltic Host - 2011". This logistics doctrine, practiced the reception and placement in the Baltic countries of many thousands of contingent of NATO troops, civilian infrastructure facilities were also involved: ports, airports, hospitals, highways, railways.

- Practically at the same time, 4-15 of April of 2011 of the year, the joint joint air force and navy of NATO Joint Warrior - 2011 on the territory of Sweden, England and the adjacent water area. Purpose: to resolve a regional conflict. And the second teaching is the NATO Viking-2011 teaching of the United Armed Forces (OVS), the goal being the use of NATO forces in a peacekeeping operation. It should be noted that a variety of military exercises of NATO forces are held in the Baltic almost every year.

Features of NATO exercises in the Baltic region

- “Defensive nature” of actions in words, but in practice - preparation of a large-scale offensive operation: air strikes at the enemy’s military-strategic targets, suppression of his air force and air defense, command and control systems; the infrastructure of the former Baltic republics of the USSR was prepared for the landing, deployment and movement of large contingents of NATO troops to the borders of the Russian Federation; the landing of large forces, including armored vehicles - an airborne operation to eliminate the remaining forces of the enemy (apparently the Baltic fleet) and preparations for the landing of the main forces. The route of movement of the main contingent of NATO forces, after the 1st stage of the operation, is obvious - Riga - Moscow and Tallinn - St. Petersburg.

- Quite often, the “legend” of the exercises is an operation against a state that owns vast natural resources in the face of problems with the delivery of resources to Western countries. Guess from three times what kind of country! Or against a state in which there are many internal problems and there are territorial claims of its neighbors - NATO, it must conduct a “peacekeeping” operation.

- Consciousness of Europeans, in principle, is already ready enough to understand the importance of combating the “threat of the East” It is enough to recall the August 2008 war of the year, there is an opinion that it was staged solely because of the need to prepare the “soil” for the subsequent aggression against the Russian Federation. An excuse can be organized, for example: Latvia will demand the return of "its" Pytalovsky district of the Pskov region or a "revolution" will occur in Moscow, and the liberal forces will be asked to enter the "limited peacekeeping contingent" in Russia to prevent the threat from the "red-brown" or "militarists".

What does the Russian Federation have in the Baltic direction

The Western Military District (created in 2010 year, USC "West") is designed to protect the western part of Russia. The headquarters is located in St. Petersburg. It includes the Moscow and Leningrad military districts, the Baltic Fleet (including the Kaliningrad special region) and the Northern Fleet. But specifically in the Baltic area, the Russian Federation has very limited forces, strongly curtailed by endless reforms and optimizations.

What can be done?

- It is clear to warn the whole world and the countries of NATO, in particular, that until the restoration of full combat effectiveness and the rearmament of our Armed Forces, we will respond to the aggression with all the available arsenal, including nuclear weapon.

- To warn the “youngonatovtsy” - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and so on (it is possible that Finland and Sweden will maintain their neutral status afterwards) that we will be forced to turn their territory into a radioactive desert, let the voters ask their leaders where have entered.

- To inscribe in the rearmament program for 2011-2020 years the rearmament of the army of Belarus, it is our only ally in this direction. To reanimate the Union State: deliveries of airplanes, helicopters, air defense systems, missile defense systems, operational tactical missiles are free, you have to pay for security.

- Accelerate the re-equipment and modernization programs of the Baltic and Northern fleets.

- Stop all cooperation with the NATO bloc, they are preparing to fight with us, and we allowed them military transit through their territory. A single European missile defense, or Russian-American missile defense is nonsense, we will never be friends and allies, there must be one “king of the mountains” on the planet. To regard any teaching of the NATO countries and their allies at our borders as a threat, immediately demanding their termination.

- To intensify work on the creation of alternative NATO alliances.

    This is indeed the only and right step to allow Russia to survive surrounded by NATO forces. But our leadership seems to be leaning toward a different path: disarmament and total obedience to NATO. The facts testify to this, as in fact, we are reducing the army, ruining our military-industrial complex, and have been repeating about the Union State with Belarus for a decade, in fact, initiating economic disputes, not talking about the lack of free supplies of the most modern weapons of the fraternal army.

      Well, yes, yes, yes, free rearm the army of Belarus, give Belarus money for everything like that. Wake up finally, all these blah blah about the union state and fraternal peoples only talk. Nothing prevented Belarus from joining Russia.
      And as far as NATO is concerned, everything is clear that they are enemies, it is not Belarus that needs to be re-equipped, but its own forces and nuclear potential

    But the army of Belarus does not obey us. Tomorrow they will ask for oil at domestic prices or a loan of 20 billion, and what will we do? It is necessary to rearm YOUR army. Transit to Afghanistan? And why not, they pay money for it.
    we alone will not pull against the whole world, therefore, we need talk about Euro missile defense, NATO’s opposition in countries such as Libya. It is necessary to make a split in their ranks, to pull out the main players from there. And of course rearm your army

    History repeats itself. Soon the 10nd Great Patriotic War will begin in the same way but 2 times more intensively. In it, the Germans also all of Europe except Slovakia were their allies .. Why is that? what a life? And it lasts more than one millennium. Is it war again? Can we stand it? Why are the patriots silent? Or are they not? at 41 everyone knew that there would be a war and it arrived. And now everyone writes about it, and everyone just writes. Where in the end recruit militias? The author of the article, do not be silent; I’m not writing these lines for a red word. Why are you walking around?

      Russia has the toughest nuclear doctrine. Those. the slightest suspicion is that the troops are suffering excessive losses or that the front moving back inland will immediately use tactical nuclear weapons. If this is not enough or the United States will give a retaliatory salvo of its tactical nuclear weapons in Europe, then the strategic strike of Topoliy and Mace will follow. Knowing all this perfectly, NATO generals will never climb into the East.
      Also, such is the war that will plunge all of Europe into a cold winter without gas and fuel; they, as drug addicts, are increasingly dependent on Russian resources. This is also a powerful brake on the development of hostilities. There are still important points that preclude the beginning of such sad events.

    --- “The three main threats to Finland’s security are Russia, Russia, and Russia again.”
    Such a claim after 3 wars? Chtol leave the village from them and call Finland?

    --- “Often the“ legend ”of exercises is an operation against the state with huge natural resources. Guess from three times what kind of country it is! ”
    Full of those! We have on the exercises on the cards "Red" and "Blue". Guess from three times who are blue!

    --- "What can be done? “It is clear to warn that until the full combat effectiveness of our armed forces is restored, we will respond to aggression with all available arsenals, including nuclear weapons.”
    In my opinion this is superfluous. However, they know. By the way, nuclear weapons are not the last argument, there is also a chemical with bacteriological. And more than that? Not stools!

      There is a strategy in 3 stages, in order to achieve their interests, they take turns in succession.

      - Buy key country leaders.
      - Arrange the Orange Revolution
      - Military intervention.

      What we see very well in Iraq and Libya.

    To the author for the article - offset and 5+ for Vigilance.
    However, in the war of Russia with the EU and NATO, at least at the northern, at least at the southern borders, it is difficult to believe, despite the presence of such "formidable" neighbors as Finland, Lithuania or Estonia on our borders.
    Still, the conflict of the Russian Federation with such a powerful military-political bloc as NATO is a NUCLEAR conflict and a war for mutual annihilation. But modern Europeans do not like to die very much - neither for the interests of NATO, nor for the interests of their own country.
    In addition, keep in mind that one Russian missile that hit the nuclear power plant (and there are dozens of them in Europe), and Fukushima and Nagasaki all seem like babble to everyone.
    In my opinion, the XNUMXst century, in any case its first quarter, is the century of local conflicts, a maximum on a regional scale, especially in the Far East and along the southern perimeter of the borders of the Russian Federation.

    Why does everyone think that we will use nuclear weapons in Europe, it’s the same as farting in a crowded elevator, winds mainly come from the west, we will poison ourselves. NATO can start aggression at the head of the USA, and it’s necessary to hit America, but they will start the operation when they finish missile defense in Europe.

    Vasya,
    There is a strategy in 3 stages, in order to achieve their interests, they take turns in succession.

    - Buy key country leaders.
    - Arrange the Orange Revolution
    - Military intervention.

    What we see very well in Iraq and Libya.

    I agree with the author! The orange revolutions around the entire perimeter of our Western borders are the fruit of the information war of the West against the Russian Federation. Attempts in the Russian Federation to conduct such revolutions have not yet yielded results. Cause? Putin turned out to be a very prominent figure in our political arena. I would say a real warrior. Attempts to put in power "their own" figures acceptable to the West continue. Now the Pindos have set their sights on the 2012 elections. And for this, they very seriously approached the organization and preparation of the electorate. I definitely don’t know Medvedev’s mission at his post, but there’s his participation in all of this (explosive reforms against the backdrop of the food crisis in the world and social tensions in society - in the field of defense, education, police and police). All this is fraught with short-term consequences .... What? Hard to predict. Plus, climate change - the heat of 2010, in 2011 - this is Siberia, the Urals, part of the Volga region is already experiencing water problems due to dry weather. What causes climate change? And what is the mission of HAARP - a military facility in Alaska with powerful frequency emitters ?! Climate management is crisis management. At the right time and in the right place.
    What is the use of nuclear weapons if a Judas like Humpbacked stands at the head of the country and surrenders the country to the enemy as he surrendered the USSR, with its most powerful potential?
    NATO members are preparing for a peacekeeping operation to restore order in a country in riots at the request of "our" president.
    Conclusion: liberal reforms in the country and society threaten the national security of the state, leading to the degradation of its main institutions. The modernization announced by Medvedev leads to rebellion and, as a consequence, to the intervention and collapse of the country.

    it is necessary that the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not fool, but specifically run into these limitroph countries. And then every trash makes a small claim, but what about parasites from Smolensk Square? It is necessary to call on Poland for tens of thousands of Red Army soldiers killed in the 20s of the last century, moreover, demanding public repentance, etc., and, before recognizing this fact, be beaten to Katyn. In general, the Finns should be attracted to the death camps in the Great Patriotic War with the demand for payment of compensation, the Balts should be billed for the all-Union subordination factories built under the USSR and others, even if they were now destroyed, but Russia was spending money, compensating for it. The Swedes should put Reich in the supply line of strategic goods during World War II, in order to justify themselves, they were tired, and they would issue invoices. "Beat the ruble" is the most useful, they won’t pay, so shut up. And so cute bosote smile, and they greyhound. One trip Matvienko (St. Petersburg governor) to Estonia is worth what, and this is after the transfer of the Bronze Soldier. In general, the Baltic states must be spread rot in black: they blinked a little because of the baseboard, then economic sanctions should be imposed, the conditioned reflex should be developed at the mongrel, it’s time to open your mouth to Russia, get it!

    The article is assembled from pieces.
    I can’t even imagine under what pretext European countries can fight with Russia. With a country that has the second nuclear potential in the world! With an economic partner, an exporter of energy resources. Europe understands perfectly well that they will become a nuclear desert in the event of a conflict, and countries usually allow barking. not having much economic weight. And the conflicts taking place in Asia and Africa have their own laws.

    And why not put it another way - a threat to the entire Baltic region from the Russian Federation? Delirium tell me? Look at the map - from the point of view of geopolitics, all the countries of the so-called Baltic are included in our zone of influence. The simplest question is - who will quickly deploy his military grouping in the Baltic theater of operations in the threatened period, us or NATO? Where and whose tanks will be faster in Riga or in Moscow? About Peter and Tallinn, modestly silent. Finally, the last - who said that these Baltic countries will be protected by European NATO? America perhaps "yes," but Europeans are hard to believe.
    My opinion is that this direction is overprotected and thank God.

    Everyone owes Russian, and not only these mongrels. It’s like a neighbor’s lending money to an apartment, not giving it away, and then telling him how “white people” earn money, setting an example.
    Only for this there must be power in the Russian Federation.
