Europeans do not have a common opinion on the deployment of NATO headquarters in their countries

According to a poll by the British research company Populus, commissioned by the international agency Sputnik, there is no consensus among Europeans about the arrangement of NATO command posts in their countries, reports RIA News.




Thus, about a third of Bulgarian citizens (32%) believe that the creation of NATO headquarters significantly reduces the country's security. 21% of Germans adhere to the same opinion regarding their country.

The highest percentage of those who voted for the creation of command posts was recorded in Poland (49%) and Hungary (38%).

To those who most likely support the plans of the alliance in Europe, the researchers attributed the US citizens. 42% of Americans believe that NATO headquarters "will contribute to the growth of security" in European countries.

There are also many who believe that the idea of ​​NATO will not change anything at all and will not affect the situation in the region. These responses were received from 28% of respondents.

“The survey was conducted by Populus research company from 25 September to 15 October 2015 of the year. 8000 respondents took part in the survey, in 1000 in each country - Great Britain, the USA, Germany, France, Bulgaria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Poland. The sample represents the population by sex, age, geography. The confidence interval for data in the whole country is +/- 3,1% with a confidence level of 95%, ”the publication notes.

The deputy director of the RISI Tavrichesky Center, military expert Sergey Ermakov believes that the range of opinion of Europeans is connected with several factors.

“The survey results show: Europe is not homogeneous. That is, in different countries there are absolutely opposite opinions about whether NATO stabilizes the situation, whether the security of European countries strengthens. And this is primarily due to history, with the geographic location of specific countries, that is, to what extent are they realistic in assessing one or another degree of threat to their security, ”he said in an interview with Sputnik.

For example, the inhabitants of Bulgaria, in his opinion, are just one of those who understand that the strengthening of the structures of NATO on their territory only worsens the security of the country.

“If we talk about Bulgaria, then this country, according to NATO classification, is on the southern flank and is directly confronted with real threats. Residents of this country understand that the presence and strengthening of the military infrastructure of NATO on the territory of Bulgaria, most likely, will not only contribute to strengthening the security of the country, but will make it even more attractive, for example, to terrorists. Plus make it a target in the event of any hostilities. It is these considerations that underlie the opinion expressed by the Bulgarians, ”the expert believes.

As for Germany, the citizens of this country gradually come to understand that the presence of NATO is not always a guarantee of security.

“For many years, the largest military contingent of the United States has been stationed in Germany outside their national territory. The Germans have become accustomed to living next door to the US military. But they understand that this presence actually creates an additional headache for their country. And this presence, this powerful base on their territory in no way protects them directly from any threats, ”said Yermakov.

          Press conference. Putin talks to reporters. Last question. One journalist stands up and asks:
          - Vladimir Vladimirovich, what will happen if the United States attacks Russia?
          Putin thought and answered:
          - Have to share.
          Journalist:
          - With America, oil and gas?
          Putin:
          - No. America in 4 occupation zones.

      The same mess with the Little Russians brothers. "And us for Shaw ?!" Although some people understand that they are being put under attack. The same 32% of Bulgarians and 21% of Germans do not just as fear show.

      Our mass media for foreign countries needs to maximally intelligibly and massively bring to the brain that the “Caliber” with UZ has a flight range of 2600 km, and with a high-explosive one - 1500 km! And to show that these "little things", flying out of the Black, Caspian, Baltic Seas and Kaliningrad, cover not only NATO bases, but also the territory of any Euro-satellite satellite of the USA! And from Sakhalin, all of Alaska and the territory of JAPA! You can install such "things" on any container ship, tanker or pleasure yacht!

    They became potential targets then, years entered the military bloc and assumed obligations to enter the war with all whom they point to. As for the deployment of headquarters and other strategic facilities in these countries, it is akin to the deployment of firing points in residential buildings.

    Well, actually, when deciding on the deployment of NATO headquarters, neither the respondents nor the government of these countries will be asked, but simply put before the fact. Which basically creates an idyll of hegemony.

      Well, you can ask about their opinion. Moreover, as many times as you like.
      Although before every US and NATO exercise in their cities, you can ask their European opinion ...



      And before each new delivery of migrants to their cities, you can also ask for their opinions. And they, in turn, can at least express their opinions ....

    On the one hand, NATO is now 100-% aggressor, and on the other, it is the price of our voluntary withdrawal of troops from Eastern Europe and Germany. Now the Americans are leaving Europe, who will guarantee that the neo-fascists and nationalists will not take power there? Yes, no one will. The first will be Germany and Poland. Then everything will be changed again. It’s another matter that under Obama, the USA itself began to slide into a fascist swamp, which means that the development of our defense industry cannot be avoided! A good, by the way, perspective for young engineers and designers.

    Clear pepper. Where there will be a headquarters, there will first of all be sent warm greetings. Slightly understanding people understand what this threatens. Well, those who have only one thought in their head: “How to shit Russia,” they just sleep and see that from the deployment of the NATO structure they will increase their security with some fright. There is no limit to naivety and stupidity!
