Increased NATO activity at Russian borders

42
According to RIA "News", with reference to the press service of the Russian Defense Ministry, the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Gerasimov, had a telephone conversation with the Chairman of the NATO Military Committee Knud Bartels, in which he expressed concern about the increased activity of the Alliance troops near the Russian borders.


According to the representatives of the alliance, because of the situation in Ukraine, NATO had to take a number of measures to ensure the security of the allies, including increased patrols of the airspace of the Baltic countries, regular flights of aircraft with radar equipment over the territory of Romania and Poland, the introduction of additional ships in the Baltic and Mediterranean seas. In addition, the alliance increased the constant presence of personnel, expanded the training program, and also strengthened the early warning system of threats and strengthened the capabilities of the response forces.

“Army General V.V. Gerasimov expressed concern about the significant increase in NATO military activity near the Russian borders, which is not conducive to improving security in Europe, ”the Defense Ministry’s press service reports.

Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu called the increase in the activity of the armed forces of NATO in Eastern Europe "unprecedented." According to the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to NATO, Alexander Grushko, the alliance is hiding behind the Ukrainian crisis in order to reanimate itself by achieving an increase in the military budget of the bloc.
According to the press service of the department, the parties "confirmed the understanding of the need for mutual steps aimed at reducing tensions and stabilizing the situation."

          Remember how many of us taught them in this way with a hunchbacked and drunken Yeltsin ... those who were untrained ... neither conscience nor honor ...
          Vladimir Putin hopes all of this is there, but he needs the support of the whole of Russian society, clearly expressed to him, which must understand that the time has come requiring the ACTIVE position of EVERY sane person ... And unfortunately, evil is more often active, watching what kind of evil his salary, how much he has, climbing with his reasoning and assumptions far from tact and objectivity ... .. And it, evil does not remember what and what forces, physical stress, it is worth managing such a state ... ... (thereby in which it is evil lurking and crap, most often quietly) .... surrounded by such and so many “friendly” partners, after those previous rulers, the results of their “reign” .... from what a terrible, up to now not fully understood situation, thanks to his efforts and the help he helped the country got out ... And, first of all, this is the most impudent evil, it DEMANDS something else ...! ??? If in Ukraine, in Russia, and throughout the world people do not start a REAL struggle against this many-sided evil, they hope that someone else will do everything necessary for them, then the result will be SCARRATED by their inevitable reality .... Wake up before it's too late ...

            Why a joke?) The set of British soldiers includes diapers!) I don’t know how many pieces, but 100% are included))) they have to walk "by themselves" at air temperatures below -5 ° C!) Recently there was a case))). ... At the northernmost military base in Norway in the town of Porsanger in the Finnmark region, the British Marines refused to carry out combat training missions due to the low air temperature. Her Majesty's subjects stated that they were unable to train in conditions where the temperature dropped to minus twenty degrees.

            The base commander of the Norwegian base, Lieutenant Colonel Trond Thomassen, justifying the British soldiers, explained that they have a special attitude to health and safety. They sit in the barracks and flatly refuse to undergo any kind of professional training whenever the thermometer drops below eight degrees. Complicating the situation is the fact that in such a cold, soldiers cannot use the diapers that are given to them for the duration of long exercises because of the impossibility of putting toilet stalls in forests, in the mountains and on other rough terrain. Once the urine cools down, the genitals begin to freeze, and in two soldiers the genitals literally froze to the inside of the disposable diaper. The British soldiers were not able to pour into a snowdrift, as ethnic Norwegians still do, the young generation lost these skills.
            For the Norwegians themselves, this situation caused only a grin. So the Norwegian Labor politician Ida Kathrine Balto Bjørnbak told reporters that she was amazed at how soldiers behave. “Let's hope that there will be no winter, no war!” She joked. In her opinion, extreme weather conditions should only temper soldiers. She noted that at NATO, exercises at a temperature of eight degrees are considered “cold winter training”. “Eight degrees in northern Norway is a beautiful fall day,” Balto explained. “But we must remember that people from all over the world represent NATO: they are Germans, Spaniards, and Italians. They all live in completely different climatic conditions, ”she concluded. True, the Norwegians are perplexed as the ancestors of these same marines fought with the Germans at Narvik. The then British fairly tolerated the April and May cold and courageously fled from Norway not at all because of the cold. Moreover, even their more distant ancestors survived frosts in the cold Russian Crimea a century and a half ago, besieging Sevastopol for 11 months. "Yes, the Norwegians conclude, - the Englishman is now not the same." Oh NATO, NATO!))))

        Actions on duty of the British in the NATO Baltic Air Policing mission. A conditional "interception" took place (a meeting with the Russian armed forces).
        Two Typhoons flew to intercept an unknown helicopter that approached the Latvian border and turned out to be Ka-27 from the "Guarding" corvette of the Baltic Fleet.
        At the time of the approach of the fighters, the helicopter was already boarding the ship and the British passed over it.

      I think I know who could become the next president of the United States. It could be anyone who would preliminarily call Obama a donkey and promise to apologize to Russia and the whole world. The people would reach for such a person. But the next president, as we know, will not be.

And about promised to apologize to Russia and the whole world you in vain - promise they are all great masters there! Let him apologize to everyone first. And then the people will see for themselves what it was - an election "trick" or from the heart ... what

    The Ukrainian fire for NATO is like manna from heaven, because For the past 23 years, this organization could not justify its existence, and here again and again, Russia is the main geopolitical enemy, but as German analysts admit, Europe has no financial ability to inflate the military budget in the face of a fragile economic recovery in the eurozone. I think at the moment NATO is a colossus with feet of clay - one wrong step is enough to collapse this giant.

    That is why they shout that the Russian army is ready
    to the answer. Everyone continues to whimper to leave the borders with Ukraine.

    Or maybe it’s really - to redeploy the army, further from the Ukrainian border
    BUT closer to the state border?

    At what distance from Moscow are the US troops?
    Send troops to the same distance - from Washington.

    The following reprint was published in UNIAN news today: The authors of an article entitled “Perhaps Europe should buy the warships that France intends to sell to Russia?” in the newspaper Le Figaro, Claudia Major and Christian Melling believe that France should not sell helicopter carriers to Russia. Instead, the EU should buy them and use for their operations.

    It's a good idea. Why do we need ships that are not designed to operate at temperatures below +8 degrees. And the money back.
