Latvian Defense Ministry will increase the presence of troops in the east of the country


“The new government intends to strengthen national defense, gradually increasing funding for this sector - in 2017 to 1,7% of GDP, in 2018 to 2%. Half of the expenses will be staff costs, ”writes the Baltic portal, citing the draft government declaration that was in the possession of the editorial board.

According to the resource, "the government is going to improve the self-defense capabilities of Latvia, increase the combat readiness of the NAF (National Armed Forces) and increase the presence of the army in the east of the country, that is, on the border with Russia and Belarus."

In addition, it is planned to increase "the role and presence of the national guard (militia) in the defense of the country, improve equipment and strength, as well as find economic incentives for entrepreneurs to ensure regular participation of their employees in the national guard exercises," Delfi notes.

The government has also not forgotten about young citizens: increased attention will be paid to their education in the military sphere, as well as the Jaunsarg movement (young defenders) will be expanded.

            From the text of the article
            The new government intends to strengthen state defense, gradually increasing funding for this area - in 2017 to 1,7% of GDP, in 2018 to 2%
            First of all. This is a US requirement for NATO member countries. At the same time, it wants, does not want, maybe Latvia cannot pay for its participation in NATO, but Washington still forcibly squeezes money out of it for military spending. Now according to the norm, they will increase to 2% of GDP, and then the norm for Latvia will simply do more.
            And secondly,
            the government is going to improve the self-defense capabilities of Latvia ... and increase the presence of the army ... on the border with Russia and Belarus
            which means that the provocateur Washington is pushing Latvia into a war with Russia and Belarus. And if not Latvia itself with its armed forces, then Latvia with its territory as a springboard for an attack on Russia and Belarus.

      Laughter, laughter, but the anti-Russian military hysteria in the Baltics is off scale. Such territorial militias in the form of the Home Guard and the "young friends of the border guards" Yaunsargs are not for good. Of course, their real combat capability is awful, but, as punishers and police officers, in the occupied territories during the Great Patriotic War, such formations showed themselves "worthily". The Latvians, it seems, are going to the convoy of NATO troops, to enter the territory of Russia and there, as part of some newly-minted Aizanzgruppen, to do what they love - murder and robbery.
      God forbid, if I am mistaken ..

        In order for the Balts to once again successfully perform in their usual historical role of punishers, they need something to "punish". And for this you need just a little - for someone to defeat the worst enemy - neighboring Russia and invite them - the pre-Balts to work as executioners and overseers in security battalions and similar ersatz-Einsatzgruppen. In the meantime, the point is, the Balts have taken on the "noble" role of a mongrel - snatching Russia and playing with "muscles" (already ridiculous!), Provoking it into a conflict in every possible way, in order to get the legal right to yell hysterically "Russians are coming !!!" and cry for help from NATO. D.b.ly - they themselves are trying to make the next Balkans from their Baltic states with their own hands (remember: shots in Sarajevo).
        I have the honor.

        The roads dried up, they drove the horses, but the coachman, as luck would have it, the Russian, got drunk again. And their Latvians - they scratch their turnips, but for what to catch a tanchik? And they tied the bow with a bow and a sea knot, the horse does not pull and that's it. And to ask - no, they are aggressors.

    In terms of raising the military budget, it is easier for them than, for example, Poland or Hungary. Raised the salary of military personnel by 20%. Here's the military budget for you and has grown to 2% of GDP.

    I still don’t understand, from what or from whom is Latvia going to defend itself? Yes, and Yaunsargov (sounds scary, inspires) expands. From Russia or what? So we are not going to attack: a) what did we forget there? b) if they had gathered, the Latvian army would not have lasted even a week.
    The worst thing that threatens the Baltic countries is the reduction in the number of sprats.
