Grushko: NATO "stuffing" about the "nuclear attack on Sweden" has replaced the story of the unsuccessful search for a Russian submarine

47
The “stuffing” of NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg about the training nuclear attack of Russian planes on Sweden became, apparently, a substitute for the already subdued story about the submarine of the Russian Navy in the territorial waters of the country, said Russia's ambassador to the alliance Alexander Grushko. His words leads newspaper Look.




“Apparently, the campaign to search for Russian submarines in Swedish waters is completely exhausted - we need new plots. Such “throwings” have become traditional, especially on the eve of the high-level meetings of the NATO Council, now - on the eve of the meeting of alliance defense ministers, ”the diplomat said.

“This is part of NATO’s aggressive propaganda campaign aimed at demonstrating its relevance, justifying the course of rebuilding the Iron Curtain in Europe, and justifying the Allies’ efforts to build and bring military capabilities to Russia’s borders, ”he said.

According to Grushko, it is still “more strange to hear such reproaches when we do everything possible to ensure the openness of military activity.”

“Military exercises are covered in the media, the Russian Ministry of Defense holds special briefings, including for military attaches of foreign countries, including NATO countries,” he said.

“So, in relation to the alliance exercises“ West-2013 ”mentioned in the report of the Secretary General of the Alliance, unprecedented transparency measures were displayed. Our military experts made detailed presentations on the scenario and objectives of the maneuvers at the Russia-NATO Council site. Their focus on the refinement of anti-terrorism tasks was emphasized, ”Grushko said.

Attempts to exacerbate the situation with nuclear weapons are artificial.

“It is well known that, along with the limitations of strategic offensive arms, Russia reduced its arsenal of non-strategic nuclear weapons by three quarters and concentrated them on central storage bases within the national territory,” the diplomat explained.

“The presence of the nuclear component in our military exercises is connected with maintaining the combat readiness of our Strategic Nuclear Forces, which are the guarantor of Russia's national security and strategic stability in the world,” he noted.

The permanent representative emphasized that “the Russian side has well-founded claims to the alliance in connection with the practice of NATO’s so-called" joint nuclear missions "(nuclear sharing), which itself contradicts the letter and spirit of the NPT."

“It is a matter of concern for the continued presence of American nuclear weapons in Europe, and for attracting non-nuclear countries to the training for its use. In addition, the US-implemented modernization of the B61 nuclear bombs in Europe creates risks of lowering the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons, which further weakens military stability in Europe, ”Grushko said.

The newspaper recalls that Stoltenberg recently stated in his report that during large exercises Russia "simulates nuclear strikes on NATO and its partners," in particular, "in March 2013 was simulated nuclear attacks on Sweden."

        If Russia decided to launch a nuclear strike against Sweden, then it would use Iskander-M with special warheads or calibers with a nuclear charge, why raise planes and get so close to the target?

    Public opinion of Swedes is "pushed" to join NATO. So, "everything is ready" (both standards and interaction and infrastructure). There is a lack of an official part with inevitable rights and obligations. You can of course once again laugh at the dimwitted Swedes who are not found no submarine last time (but still trained their own navies), but a couple of such "Swedes" in the Baltic would not hurt us either. I wonder which of ours will encroach on the Viking possessions next time? Maybe it will be our formidable uncle and his 33 heroes? I will not be surprised at anything.

        Sweden is the stronghold and trojan horse of the United States in Europe. Through formally neutral Sweden, the United States has been implementing important economic, military-political, and intelligence projects since the beginning of the XNUMXth century. During the two world wars, the United States was first a neutral state, and then the main beneficiary. Regardless of our attitude towards Sweden, the ruling circles of this country see us as enemies.
        The Wallenbergs rule in Sweden, not "our king".

    And in February 2016 you could only voice it? Something for a long time, even by Scandinavian standards, "swayed". Solo on the theme "Russian nuclear threat" performed by Stoltenberg. Words and notes from Washington. Let's listen and evaluate.

    This is called self-winding, when one’s brainwashed by a frank lie and claims that it’s just the truth, and in this way the society leads to the idea that a war with this state that is being slandered is inevitable and necessary.

    In addition, the US modernization of the B61 nuclear bombs deployed in Europe

    What the hell is such a horror story in Europe? The carriers of such bombs will be shot down at a distance of 40 km from the border (Tacit agreement) and on the sights at the strategic nuclear forces. And 2 percent of GDP doesn’t squeeze pockets - all hide homeless people will go free. I saw your cleanliness in the suburbs of Brussels.

    I quote: "...strangely to hear such reproaches when we are doing everything possible to ensure openness of military activities. " It is not clear why our ambassador to NATO, some reproaches from NATO seem "strange". He does not understand what the purpose of these reproaches is. If this is so, then another ambassador should be sent to NATO, and it is better not to send any ambassadors to this organization in order to save them from diplomatic verbiage. All the same, Stoltenberg will accuse our country of those sins for which it now seems useful to him to accuse. So why this post, in which the ambassador, a respected middle-aged man, has to pretend to be an idiot who is somehow strange in NATO statements. I think that NATO's reproaches are not strange to the majority of VO readers, but to him, you see, "strange."

    Yes, they (NATO) really need money. Well, no way the Swedes in a good way do not want to be obliged to pay contributions to NATO. This means that it is necessary to form public opinion so that taxpayers themselves with the song suffer denyuzhku, and even in which case the heads were folded for democratic values. So they are told about the sea, forest and airborne monster ...

    Let the Swedes explain why we need to launch a nuclear strike against a non-nuclear country? There are other, more appropriate goals. In general, it seems to me, there is simply intimidation and winding up of the population of the West. countries so that it itself demanded from its governments to deliver a preemptive strike against the "aggressor" who will be considered us. In favor of this, the buildup of the military contingent of the "Baltic Tigers", the deployment of renewed nuclear weapons in Germany, NATO tanks in Georgia, Ukraine, again. Eh, to be at war. Let not tomorrow, but it will be. IMHO. request
