Norway increases the military budget to monitor the Russian Federation in the Arctic and pay Washington for the F-35

29
Norwegian Ministry of Defense calls for increased military spending by 9,8%. In this case, one of the areas of expenditure of funds official Oslo connects with the development of the defense component of the Arctic regions.


The lion's share of the military budget will go to the implementation of the contract commissioned by the US F-35 fighter jets, which Washington stubbornly continues to call the fighter of the new generation. The first batch of F-35 will be delivered to Norway next year.

The Tass news agency reports that the Norwegians are allocating an amount equivalent to almost 200 million dollars for additional funding for the country's intelligence services. The document, which is published by the Norwegian media, explicitly states that additional funds should be used to strengthen the monitoring of the actions of the Russian Federation, primarily in the Arctic.

Norway increases the military budget to monitor the Russian Federation in the Arctic and pay Washington for the F-35


TASSquotes a message fragment:
Russian activity in the Arctic, as well as an increase in its military potential in general, should be taken into account when assessing the challenges facing the northern regions in the field of defense and security.


From the message Norwegian Ministry of Defense:
The Norwegian government takes the security situation very seriously, and in 2016, we intend to work on our stated goal of strengthening the Norwegian armed forces in areas that allow operational opportunities to grow in both the short and long term.

      Night. Bar. All closed. A German mouse protrudes from the mink, looks around - there is no cat. It rushes that there is strength to the bar, pours beer for itself, drinks and rushes that there is strength back to the hole. A minute later the French mouse appears, looks around - there is no cat. He also rushes to the bar, pours himself wine, drinks in one gulp and instantly back to the hole. A Russian mouse peeps out - there is no cat. Runs to the bar, pours a stack of vodka, drinks. Looks around - there is no cat. Pours a second stack, drinks - no cat. He pours a third, then a fourth and a fifth ... After the eighth, he sits down, looks around - well, there’s no cat! Kneading muscles, lights up and mutters so viciously: - Well, nothing ... We'll wait.

      Скорее, Уважаемый jjj, это из серии "выбьем глаз, что бы у тёщи был кривой зять", ибо не далее как вчера на Рамблере была статья о том, что Норвегия впервые "вскрывает фонд благосостояния будущих поколений". Получается будущее зависит от F-35, не веселое будущее как и самолет.

      Such a thought was born. hi

        Well ... I won’t poke a finger ... however, we also sometimes dive ... But we dive not by order of the black dad, but by necessity ...

        And here is Norway ... The Northern Fleet’s ships and boats enter the Atlantic, and so on, almost under its supervision ... And here, at the direction of the United States, they will provide intelligence and security for the same states, incurring debt due to aircraft that she essentially would not have needed if she lived together with her neighbors ...

          Specifically, Norway benefits from these F-35s of course, as well as from the fact that they will spy on the Big Neighbor.
          Probably they’re just flattered that they can follow their neighbor, and they will have the most expensive toy.
          To whom is this all the only good? not hard to guess

        In September this year, the Norwegian television channel TV2, one of the largest non-state broadcasters in the country, will premiere the 10-episode television series Occupied (Okkupert).
        I think all these are branches of the same tree. The victim herself must want to buy American weapons, realizing that this is another money throw ...........

        And the Norwegians are not going to put pressure on Russia in one go. They are the northern flank of NATO, and not the lonely tribe of mountain Vikings. The AWACS, the single communication of the Air Force and Navy of individual NATO members among themselves are not an easy organism. To leave the adversary Iskander and Caliber . (they also have revolvers (s)))) ...

        only Rurik was not Norwegian, but the Varangian was called to reign in Novgorod, i.e. hired him to defend against the horns and an independent princely court.

        Guys, for NATO, they are the first spies on our Northern Fleet and our Arctic ...

        As they say - a small bug, but smelly ... Often, spies did damage to the enemy more than a tank division, or even an army ...

        Так что просто отмахиваться от усиления разведывательной деятельности Норвегии не стоит, а нужно принимать какие-то контрмеры... Пусть РЭБ наши развивают и глушат их "подсматривательно-подслушивающую" аппаратуру...

    From what means will they increase? They have great social obligations. In this regard, the dark-skinned ones climb into the fray. How to provide for their own with their usual large requests and a cloud of locusts in the form of swarthy, which after this can remain to increase military spending?

    "...дополнительные средства должны пойти на усиления наблюдения за действиями Российской Федерации, в первую очередь в Арктике."

    Watch, watch, Norway. Look, do not break your eyes! In general, the Norwegians have a very high standard of living. Right to indecent. We should somehow live more modestly, we must lower this level! Well, a purchase from seshea F-35 will quickly help in this ...

    It would have been better for Denmark to have herring tails drunk, Denmark had already put forward a claim to the UN with claims for the North Pole, but how would they pay for the F-35 ass, it would remain naked and how to monitor Russia?

    monitor the Russian Federation in the Arctic and pay off with Washington for F-35
    You need to monitor the RF from deep bunkers - dig, shura, dig. And for f-35 I already said: the Pentagon ordered 2000 pieces of still very crude aircraft. Who is the pretzel that pushes such purchases in the Norwegian parliament? And the whale there will receive a powerful walrus from this transaction?

    A thought arose. After all, this hysteria around the increase in armaments in Europe is beneficial to the Americans. That they should give us a couple of hundred lyam to increase the military budget. Trumpet the news about our aggressiveness and the return to the USSR 2.0!
    To do this, they tear off F35, tanks and other trifles for a couple of lards with their hands! They are ultimately in the black!

    airplanes are good, but without the appropriate Arctic fleet and equipment, it will be difficult for the Norwegians to secure their sovereignty in their Arctic territories, the budget is clearly not pulling, and the Yankees are simply not lending ...
