New NATO exercises in the Baltics - Saber Strike 2014. Latvians, take care of flower beds

73
In Latvia began the next exercise of the forces of the North Atlantic Alliance. This time, the Latvian servicemen, together with their British, Norwegian, American, Estonian, Canadian and Lithuanian colleagues, are taking part in the Saber Strike 2014 maneuvers, which the opponents of the exercises managed to christen by the first letters of their name as SS-2014.


According to the Ministry of Defense of Latvia, the main purpose of the maneuvers is to work out the interaction of the ground and air forces, as well as to test the effectiveness of cooperation of military contingents of NATO countries during conditional operations.

Портал Delphi reports that the Minister of Defense of Latvia Raimonds Vejonis, as well as military officials of the participating countries took part in the opening ceremony of military maneuvers at the Adazhi base. The culmination of the launch ceremony was a “welcome” flight over the heads of participants in the American B-52.

The total number of military personnel who will demonstrate NATO unity in the Baltic states is 4700 people. In the course of these exercises, it is planned to use about 800 units of various equipment.

The exercises will take place on the territory of the three Baltic states (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia).

New NATO exercises in the Baltics - Saber Strike 2014. Latvians, take care of flower beds






A number of Latvian politicians and public figures, skeptical about the current type of membership of Latvia in NATO, said that the exercises once again demonstrate that Latvia and other Baltic countries have become states dependent on the alliance.

The previous exercises of the NATO troops in Latvia ended in a wave of indignation of the residents of Ventspils and personally the heads of this city because of how the “atlantists” behaved in their city. The need for city beds and the walls of houses in the center of the Latvian city to be flown by the Dutch seamen is the most “innocuous” thing that was mentioned by the locals, stating that the NATO secretary general should punish his subordinates. NATO Secretary General did not react to the indignation of the Latvians.

        Too long a logical chain will have to be built to come to such conclusions. At least not this time. If the Germans are not involved.
        Or maybe easier - "Saber Strike 2014" (Saber Strike).
        Well, they have a passion for such names. The influence of Huliwood, panimash ...

      It is necessary to take reptiles to a fright.
      To state that in connection with the buildup of the NATO military grouping near the northwestern border of Russia, there is a need to deploy an additional 1-2 Motorized Rifle Brigades.
      Let the turnips scratch tongue : "true or false", and continue to "fear" the eastern neighbor.
      Make their unfounded suspicions and fears a frightening "reality", "justify their expectations", for one thing, and mock it. laughing tongue

        In Latvia, regular exercises of the forces of the North Atlantic Alliance have begun. This time, the Latvian military together with their British, Norwegian, American, Estonian, Canadian and Lithuanian colleagues take part in the Saber Strike 2014 maneuvers, which the opponents of the exercises managed to christen their names in the first letters as “SS-2014».

        Well, this time they’re definitely not getting off with a broken monument! SS is self-critical and, most importantly, to the point! laughing

      Laughing and scoffing again ...
      But in vain. It's actually the return of the Cold War.
      Do you remember that time? I remember now, and I am not very happy to return it.
      Now, after all, no one will deny that the economic war is already underway, and we have suffered some losses?
      But the increase in the NATO contingent near our borders (exercises) are all part of the economic war, that is, it is one of the economic "bullets" into the body of our Motherland.
      ps as well as the suspension of the construction of the South Stream by Bulgaria and Serbia (albeit under pressure from the United States, but these countries did as they were told, even to the detriment of their interests) - so something else will happen.
      And you are laughing here ... What? Over the fact that our budget has received a new, unplanned expense item?
      ps Sorry, about Serbia, perhaps purely "duck", not confirmed yet.

        The Serbs have already denied this.
        Although, who knows, maybe they are also trying to hold 2 tails in one hand?
        And in general, if the exercises are "at the borders of Ukraine", then why not in Romania-Hungary-Slovakia-Poland? Probably, the flower beds are prettier in Latvia. laughing

        Why are you pouring your vision on the South Stream now? Well, really! The Serb said that if it were real, it would notify the Russian side first of all! Here we will sit and smear the snot on the keyboard with the whole forum! We have the exercises of all military branches are held almost continuously! Now we’re afraid of some Baltic states! Donbass is blazing at our side, and we will suffer damn about the Baltic states with 3 tanks in three countries!
        And about the Cold War, it didn’t end there! Didn’t you notice the expansion of NATO!

And it’s only flowers a few kilometers from the Russian border that kill Russians, and you’re only here at Putin’s if there’s a brilliant plan, Putin merged everyone in a circle, and the war is right at your very borders, and you are next. And do not worry about the NATO soldiers once they have already gotten for their disgust and do not have to offend the whole country people.

    Did the Papuans ever ask someone for permission ???
    The white gentlemen came to work out and have a good rest. This is not Soviet occupation, you won’t open your mouth to blather against it.

    The Balts themselves got in there. For them, NATO urine is better than Soviet occupation.

    In the Kaliningrad region, under the leadership of the commander of the troops of the Western Military District, the exercises of the Baltic Fleet, Airborne Forces and the Russian Air Force began, ITAR-TASS was told in the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    “The exercises are held simultaneously with the international exercises Saber Strike-2014 and BALTOPS-2014 launched in Europe,” the ministry said. “The number of forces and means of the Russian Ministry of Defense involved in exercises in the Kaliningrad region is comparable with the number of personnel, weapons and military equipment involved in cross-border exercises conducted by NATO countries,” the department said.

    Well, we can do that too
