Analysts: Russia will respond to the expansion of its American presence in Eastern Europe by strengthening its military infrastructure

40
Washington’s plans to substantially increase funding for the Central and Eastern European military support program are not likely to cause a positive reaction in all European countries; RIA News An article published in the New York Times.




“For example, in the Czech Republic, an increase in the American military contingent can be regarded as a counterproductive measure,” writes American journalist and analyst Eric Best. - The tone in the country is increasingly set by President Milos Zeman, who openly speaks of the need to lift the sanctions against Russia. He will probably appreciate this move differently ",

The actions of Americans, of course, will cause a negative reaction in the Russian Federation. According to the newspaper, referring to Russian experts, "Moscow is unlikely to start a new arms race, but will be forced to strengthen the western borders."

“On the one hand, Russia will continue to strengthen the military infrastructure in the western regions, which was not sufficiently developed five years ago. On the other hand, new weapons may be deployed in the west of the country, ”said Ruslan Pukhov, head of the Strategy Analysis Center.

“Moscow can deploy Iskander-M missile systems at its western borders, as well as C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems,” he noted.

A well-known military expert Igor Korotchenko agreed with this opinion: “Russia will not welcome the strengthening of the American contingent in Europe when there is no risk of military confrontation with NATO, and the reaction of Moscow will not be hysterical.”

“Russia will not participate in the arms race. No one will do anything extra. Any reaction will be based on the presence of Russia's tactical nuclear weapons- said Korotchenko. “We remember well how the arms race ended for the Soviet Union.” We will not repeat the same mistake. ”

        What instinct? The new generation, and not just one, of the frightened ones has grown. It’s not just not frightened, but impudent. They will have to explain popularly again! That is why reincarnation of tank armies is carried out, and not only tank ones along the way! Nothing new. Moses also proved, and empirically, to reformat society, you need at least 40 years)) And then 70 flew by.

    What can I say, to all the stupidity of the West, Russia will respond with its unpredictability. Putin is a master of silent unpredictability. Who knows what this Russia has in its bins?
    They no longer know how to bring the Russian Federation off balance, this way or that, but we don’t respond to aggression. We can say that the American government has already spat in the well, and we are silent.)))) And you will have to come for water. laughing

    The thing is that the attitude towards Russia in the world is changing. The people have become smarter chtoli .. I regularly look at the news in Europe. And it seems that Ukraine is a boring dung fly that spoils EVERYTHING. The United States is a country that is the source of problems. Russia may be bad, but you can live and trade with it!
    I literally spent the weekend talking with a Finn. He is married to a Russian. He often visits here. And they had a conversation with him over a glass of tea. And by all accounts, it turns out that they are more likely to treat us well than badly. We are AFRAID! I tried to explain to him, but the situation with Crimea is too depressing shown in Western media. They immediately thought, and then the Russians want to join Finland!?))) I laughed and the topic was closed. So the main thing is not to give up and talk more and maybe the eyes will open in the west hi

    Russia will always find its own "answer to Chamberlain" for the actions of the West. But Europe will only lose. And the point is not only in an increase in military spending, but also in the fact that additional coordinates will be introduced into our retaliatory strike assets.

      I don’t know how it is with Chamberlain, but Europe is building its defense in the wrong direction, it seems to me. Or they are stupid and short-sighted, or purposefully destroy themselves, treating them loyally to refugees from Africa. I think they will tear from the inside faster than Russia will attack the EU.

    We well remember how the arms race ended for the Soviet Union. We will not repeat the same mistake
    Here, only, the Soviet Union was not killed by an arms race, but by traitors. Without a strong army and powerful military-industrial complex, which the present capitalists are still taking advantage of, the balance of forces in the world would hardly be ensured. If the adversary builds up his potential, whatever you call it, but without an arms race, you cannot maintain your security.

    The most interesting thing is if the hunchback did not screw up after a couple of months, the United States would collapse - those who were out of breath, and restored at the expense of Russia.

      The arms race is about ensuring military parity. For the deployment of missile defense, we seem to be modernizing missiles. But in conventional weapons, quantitative parity is impossible. The creation of modern weapons drags the economy and science. And science is education. And so on. ... etc. That is, the "arms race" is a global competition. The crown of this race are the deadliest fighters in the sky and a sufficient number of healthy and ruddy kids in kindergartens, future soldiers.

    I. Korotchenko answered correctly, -not we, but NATO is moving to the East, and we have already gone through this (in 41!), So that you need to believe the words, and the paper, for the time being. The situation is now extremely difficult, you need to be ready for anything and the most important problem now is the "fifth column" - "shift workers", effective managers "and other" pro-Westerners "who still hold key positions in politics, economy and public administration.

    Of course, this is taken for granted, but I think Washington’s plans for its influence are much wider, including ISIS, Russia, and China. If the US military spending for 2017 could reach 582.7 billion, think for yourself, these are about two Russian budgets for 2016 .

    Even a donkey can kick a dead lion with impunity. The arms race did not end for the USSR, since the United States experienced the same problems as the Soviet Union. The problems were mutual. But it was the USSR and could afford such defense spending. But citizen Korotchenko gives out need as a benefactor. We are now physically unable to produce enough weapons to ensure proper protection, since our industry is in its infancy. But citizen Korotchenko honestly found an excuse.

    yeah, the Yankees jerked like a pig on a rope, but in order not to jerk anymore, you need to abolish their dollar bills for which they are atrocious around the world, or at least firmly bind to the gold exchange rate, and their military budget will immediately die and their fleet and marines and other soldiers will stop hanging around the world for a long time

    The United States is increasing its presence in Europe not because of a threat to Russia, but because of a fear of losing its influence on Europe.

    I think Russia is not worried. According to NATO in Central and Eastern Europe, the correlation of forces is significantly in favor of Russia. For military personnel 3 to 1, combat aircraft 6 to 1, tactical nuclear weapons 27 to 1. In the Western Military District of Russia, about 400 military , 000 tanks, 1 infantry fighting vehicles., 120 aircraft. Specifically, in Lithuania several. Abrams tanks, several dozens of infantry fighting vehicles in the Kaliningrad region respectively approx. 3 tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.
