The Baltic countries and Poland plan to jointly purchase air defense systems

32
Following the talks in Vilnius, the presidents of Latvia and Lithuania, Raimonds Vejonis and Dalia Grybauskaite, said that the Baltic countries and, possibly, Poland could organize joint procurement of medium-range air defense systems.



"We discussed the issues of cooperation in the field of defense, including the general procurement of weapons, especially in terms of air defense," Grybauskaite said. "Military Industrial Courier".

She also noted that it is possible to purchase what “will be affordable, what will be needed, and how much will be needed.”

In turn, Vejonis said that the joint format of procurement of air defense systems has “great prospects”.

"However, it is equally important that the Baltic countries and Poland can reach a general agreement on this issue," he added.

It is worth noting that the issue of collective procurement of medium-range air defense systems was included in the memorandum, which the Baltic defense ministers signed in May of this year. However, the details were not voiced.

          I don’t understand, do they really think that their missile defense system is not automatically recorded as a target for our nuclear-armed missiles? Do they dream of living on a nuclear ashes?

    Russia should explain to them in simple and understandable language that the most advanced American air defense systems do not save them from short- and medium-range nuclear missiles. And recall the motto of the Strategic Missile Forces units: "After us, only silence."

      Those. Are you going to strike nuclear weapons in the Baltic states? Are you out of your mind, dear? The negative consequences of such a strike for Russia will at times exceed the military benefit received (naturally, in case of war). You just need to arrange the Baltic People's Republic there.

        "Oh, leave!"
        It's just that all the killers need to be informed that if they continue to approve of the Yankesian doctrine of a preemptive nuclear strike against Russia, then the "response" in the form of Iskander (possibly with tactical nuclear weapons (at American bases in Europe)) will fly instantly and turn the sprat into a fish flour. Just to know how the sprat will end up supporting the cannibalistic designs of the host shark ...

      I suppose there is no delirium.
      Can't you afford to buy toys from Amersky (German, it doesn’t matter) military-industrial complex individually?
      So, take the chipper. And then they invented there for themselves God knows that: they are unique and they don’t need blacks, and they don’t have money for defense - guard us, honey, otherwise Putin dances and sings for us somehow.

    Well, the news is actually not particularly interesting. Poverty can purchase advanced slingshots.
    But the fact that in the vocabulary of politicians such words as Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania are successfully disappearing is indicative. Something new has appeared. The new Baltic state.
    The results of independence. Enough indicative phenomenon.

      And in my opinion it’s interesting to answer the question - why would it suddenly?
      I see two options: either (just in chorus) they no longer rely on amerikosov or they "put the squeeze" on them in terms of shelling out (NATO).

      And what they have been looking for and trying for a long time, despite their EU membership, to create other alliances (Lithuania-Poland-Ukraine, for example) shows that the euphoria has passed and understanding of harsh reality is coming: nobody needs them and they can forget about equality - footmen at the table with the gentlemen do not put.

        Lithuania-Poland-Ukraine-It is 80 million people. Ho now, with the support of America, a slightly different alliance-Scandinavia, Poland, Romania is being formed. It is also almost 80 million people, but GDP is greater than Russia's GDP. This union will be able to limit Russian influence in Ukraine and even Belarus.

      So after all, dialectics :: If the limitrophes saw Europe on the crest of the "cold war" so rise before their very eyes, why not sprat on the crest of Europe's confrontation with Russia?
      Their brains are chicken - as the EU betrayed them, it will continue to do so, and Europe is violet, how sprats will call themselves and what flocks they are going to - holding the Baltic Sea is less expensive than 4 limitrophic shreds, especially shrill ones like Psheks ...

      Excuse me, this is not a state. This is just a group of subordinates. I am convinced that if you give them free rein, they will begin to cut each other for nothing.
      In this case, state financial management promotes peace among group members, although the idea of ​​unification is vicious.

    It looks like a continuation of the old theme. Obama promised not to install air defense systems in Europe if an agreement is reached with Iran. Now we have agreed with Iran, but the air defense will appear not because NATO wants it so, but because the vassals in the person of the Balts and Poland wanted it. So Obama will save face: "And I am cho, I am nicho, they themselves wanted to install air defense."

    Yes, they, poor fellows, have nowhere to go. It is Ukraine that can "afford" to sell black soil and something else, while these have already destroyed everything created by the Union. For two decades they "went" to democracy, but today no one wants to take responsibility "for the wrong place." Today, any of these countries, with a "change of orientation" will receive an anvil in the form of a poor people and a hammer - nationalist organizations. The only thing left for the political "elite" is to continue "to lie down in the most attractive position" and live to the end of the term.

    Squealing, but not with delight ... This work, however. hi

    I feel that if this goes further, these Baltic beggars will begin to buy money for their armies with engineer blades, gas masks, and helmets. On Monday, a Latvian man wears a helmet, on Tuesday a Lithuanian on Wednesday and Thursday a Pole, he has a gas mask right away, since they have chipped off most of all.

    I'm not special. in these questions, but I'm wondering, is this a problem for Iskander complexes? They will be (air defense systems) all in sight due to the proximity to our borders. I do not think that in the event of a possible conflict, our Air Force will climb without preliminary "cleaning" in the mostly flat terrain of the so-called. Baltic.

      Most likely not a particular problem.
      If the Saudis by the Patriots and half of the ancient Yemeni SS-20 could not intercept, then with Iskander everything will be sadder.

      I believe these goals will be too insignificant for the Iskander.
      If anything, the SU-34 must handle it. Like in Georgia.

    Let them buy. New systems will not be sold to them, but the old trash will be boiled up. It will not help, even Iskander is not needed to suppress their air defense.

    And what will be "within our means"?
    Anything really old?
    So in his repairs and maintenance will have to roll money.
    And spend money on training.
    A trained can score for everything and topple to repair plumbing in European toilets.
    Take something simpler like a slingshot. Cheap and versatile - you can shoot at crows.

    Do not put air defense in Europe ??? Actually, PRO. However, this was not linked in any way with the negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program. The question is in the plane of countering Iran’s missile forces. Nuclear weapons are already as an add-on to missiles.
    And vassals will always want to. For then the vassal can count on any handout from the owner. And he, vassal, by and large is not asked whether he wants or not

    The fact that the Baltic countries have as air defense are tears. Estonia has 27 French Mistral MANPADS and as many as 98 ZU-23-2, Latvia has a number of Swedish RBS-70s, Lithuania has 54 Stinger MANPADS and as many as 24 40-mm L-70 anti-aircraft guns. It is clear that you want something more "serious", but you can't buy it alone. So we cooperated with Poland

    Nobody knows yet what they are going to buy. Some may pose a threat. As for the proximity to the borders, it all depends on what they are going to buy. Mobile complexes are not hospitals, they can operate quite efficiently, and it is necessary to know their coordinates with a 100% guarantee in order to "clean up"
