On Wednesday, the NATO Commander of the NATO Rapid Reaction Force, Timothy Evans, arrived in Estonia to familiarize with the country's ability to receive allied forces, reports RIA News message of the Estonian military department.




“The purpose of the visit of General Evans is to familiarize himself with the possibilities of Estonia for receiving and deploying Allied troops, as well as discussing further cooperation in the field of defense,” the release said.

According to the authorities, the Baltic Host’s maneuvers are currently taking place in the Baltic countries, which are precisely devoted to “working out the reception of the Allied forces”. In parallel with them, the Arrcade Fusion teaching is taking place, where the allies "work out the deployment of the rapid reaction force corps."

        Эти визиты так успокаивают Приебалтику, а какое впечатление от защиты и покровительства испытывают! Даже грузины такого "экстаза" не испытывали, но до слабоумия, все таки, дошли, растеряв по пути инстинкт самосохранения и остатки исторической памяти.
        In such situations, it will be like in a relationship between people - once a betrayer will betray again. There is nothing to spare them.
        Allies? Too loud for the Balts. For amers and NATO members, this is a irritant to Russia and a moderator for a couple of hours, while the RF Armed Forces will ground them, the opportunity for NATO members to evacuate.

        Откуда такая "дикая" мания величия у расходного материала ?

        With territorial problems, they are not accepted. No one needs a headache. Yes, and about the Baltic countries in NATO full headquarters, such as Muzhenko, either. This Baltic gut is easily transformed into a strategic boiler by the Baltic Fleet and the Kaliningrad Region.

    Why worry. In the wake of Russophobian hysteria, Estonians will even give you their farmsteads, and city dwellers will gladly accept a guest from their officers in their apartments. They have rich experience in this area (Germans in the Second World War).

    Often I see, recently, in foreign photographs (especially Western and NATO) in the media that the style of posing for photos, the Donbass militia is copied.
    However, the image of the Russian Warrior falls into the subcortex for them. Respect means fear!
    A situational example, accompanied by a constant video sequence in the media and the highest ideas of the republics of New Russia, is gradually manifesting in one form or another around the world.

    Reminded an old button accordion ... I’m hurrying to redo it.

    Two American Marines are sitting in a bar. The first asks the second:
    (1) - Well, I went to this Baltic region of theirs.
    (2) - I went.
    (1) - What did they do there?
    (2) - We were tested there for endurance.
    (1) - How is it?
    (2) - Well, roads are in Russia - shit, are you up to date?
    (1) - In the know.
    (2) - Well, they taught us not to be afraid of shit. The Baltic states are the former Russia and the roads there are the same. You won’t believe what we had to go through ...
    (1) - And how? Aren't you scared now?
    (2) - Not afraid. Do you see the spittoon?
    (1) - I see.
    (2) - Well, now I can take a sip from it and it will not make me sick.
    The first marine looks into the spittoon. There are spitting, someone spit and wallow used swab.
    (1) - I bet a hundred tanks that you can’t.
    The second takes a spittoon and takes a sip. The first unfastens a hundred. A toad strangles him.
    (1) - But we argue for a hundred that I can drink a sip from it?
    (2) - We argue.
    The first takes a spittoon and drinks ALL. The second is surprised:
    (2) - You are certainly cool, but why did you drink it all? A sip would have been enough.
    (1) - Yes, you know ... There was such a long snot and it did not snack ...
    A lieutenant approaches them and says:
    (L) - Guys, I heard your argument. Don't you think that you have drunk the entire spittoon for nothing?

    только что вернулся из Эстонии. Мог бы, конечно, чтобы наловить плюсов от УРЯклов, ляпнуть бред типа "пьяная натовская солдатня застрелила кошку, отозвавшуюся на русскую кличку...", "из-за низкопролетающих F-15 перестали доиться коровы в Раквере..." и т.д. Но, к их сожалению, ничего похожего нет. Никто никакими мускулами не играет, чучела ВВП на площадях не жгут и асфальт Абрамсами не шлифуют. На улицах по-прежнему изобилует русская речь. Памятник "Русалке" никто не осквернил. Я вот читаю упражнения в скудоумном бреде и думаю: неужели некоторые комментаторы всерьёз верят в то, что пишут?
