NATO ministers approve of strengthening alliance’s eastern borders

64
On Wednesday, NATO’s 28 defense ministers approved a proposal to expand the military presence on the Alliance’s eastern borders, reports RIA News statement by the Secretary General of the organization Jens Stoltenberg.




“The ministers agreed on an expanded presence on the eastern flank. An attack on one NATO member will be considered an attack on the entire alliance, ”said Stoltenberg.

According to him, the alliance "will respond to the attack as a whole." The Secretary General noted that "the expansion of the military presence will be carried out on a rotational basis" using the "necessary logistical and logistical infrastructure."

"The military planners will consult on the scope and composition of this expanded military presence starting this spring," the secretary general added.

He also said that the Pentagon was determined "according to a plan to increase the presence of its forces in Europe by rotating permanently armored and mechanized units."

According to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, "within the framework of this plan, a battalion from 500 to 1000 to soldiers from the USA, Great Britain and Germany can be sent to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria."

      The Anglo-Saxons and, especially, the Germans will teach the "allies" to bend and swing. Although, they will most likely just remember forgotten skills.
      Within the framework of this plan, from 500 to 1000 soldiers from the USA, Great Britain and Germany can be sent to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria.

      With a new occupation of you, dear Baltic and East European friends.

        "Will respond to the attack as a whole"

        How to react? To fight if something happens there, no one is eager to. If that - very many "friends and bros" the alliance will immediately miss. They all have one universal excuse - that they were misunderstood. NATO membership - yes, but dying - no, if you please ...

            it is necessary to officially place on the MO and MFA website a map with the addresses of nuclear weapons strikes in the event of a conflict on the part of NATO. so that the citizens of these countries now remember and think day and night about who they choose and that now they are number 1 target.

          Let's dot the E! "We will respond to the attack as a whole" in the phrase, the keyword AT ATTACK !!! And if you consider that we RUSSIA ourselves will never be the first to attack, then this is just an empty "bunch" in the air in the form of a fraternal pat on the shoulder, well, like "we are with you" just prepare money.
          Therefore, they arrange for us provocations with Ukraine, Turkey, and I think this is not the last. They themselves will never attack because it is already a break in the contract ......

            In 1812, 1914 and 1941. people also said that no one would dare attack us - they say they are cowards and not fools. But no - they attacked no matter what! Enough for us to step on the same rake every time! If you want peace, get ready for war! IMHO

              So the essence of the NATO treaty is that if someone decides to attack, then everyone will not subscribe to this case, even under the pressure of phishington. It is one thing to wait for help if they attack, it is another thing to act as an aggressor themselves. Yes, even against Russia. But with all this, it was never worth and it is not worth relaxing, the army and navy should always be on the level and on the alert.

      The circus left - the clowns remained! Polish Foreign Minister Vitold Washchikovsky: “Russians do not understand what NATO is! The North Atlantic Alliance brings together countries with a defined structure of values ​​and rules. These are democracies where we have civilian control over the army, where defensive rather than offensive doctrine dominates. In this regard, the more countries of this type around Russia, around the borders of Russia, the more secure Russia should feel. Because she must be sure that such aggressive countries will not follow any aggressive actions against Russia ”

        Interesting materials came from America. They couldn’t take us by force, they want to decompose us from the inside. They write directly, they will fight for people from childhood, they will corrupt our literature and art and will find assistants and like-minded people inside Russia for this.
        Well, that shit was enough for us. Harm hard. So the calculation of America is chosen correctly. They want to encourage confusion among us and bureaucrats. This is also enough. Andrei correctly said: “Now you can’t figure out where the bureaucrat is and where the agent is.

      You probably don’t understand .... Russia has leased Ukraine a naval base in the Crimea for 23 years.
      During this time, Russia has never taken any actions against Ukraine aimed at tearing off the Crimea.
      Although, in my opinion, it had every right, since Crimea went to Ukraine during the Soviet era, and this was an administrative reassignment within the framework of a single country. After the collapse of "Indestructible", a fair question arises: - On what basis does Crimea remain a part of Ukraine? This is the territory of Russia.
      Well, let’s get back ... Until the moment Ukraine was loyal to us, the Russian Federation tolerated and (paid) lease relations. After the well-known events on the Maidan, when it became clear that the Kharkiv agreements would soon be denounced, and the Russian Black Sea Fleet would be expelled by the new authorities "nenki", and a fleet of "our partners" would come in its place. will rise in the underbelly of Russia ANOTHER ONE NATO military base fool
      Russia simply had no choice but to make KrymNASH. In addition, we had a moral right to this, since the USSR ceased to exist. I did not touch in my post desire Crimeans enter the Russian Federation, i.e. the desire of people living in Crimea.
      Now think: - Why do we need it? Knowing your Russophobic mood, Russia does not want to have such citizens in its composition fool
      Why you are you gaining your price by trying to appear as some valuable and necessary (citizens, territories, sprats - you have nothing else)? For Russia.
      What makes You think so?
      There may be a realization that nobody needs you, you are of no interest and you want to draw attention to yourself: - Well look at me, well, here I am, we are the Baltic states !!!
      In this regard, as part of the EU and NATO, the desire is to * toward - Russia and in your own eyes feel significant and important. Dr. Freud has described your behavior.

    Oh yeah! NATO, like the EU, is just a monolith. It is enough to see how they behave when solving the difficulties of the dominance of migrants. Problems are thrown against each other and fenced off with fences, border control, etc.
    One can imagine how they "together" will rush to die for some sort of Estonia. Although Russia is like a dog's fifth leg.

    Maybe the Russian media are clumsy, NATO alone now includes 28 European states, the borders of which are the boundaries of the so-called "responsibility" of NATO as a military alliance. What is it not clear? There are now three pseudo-Baltic states on the eastern borders - NATO's main foothold for a surprise attack on Russia today. The next states to be involved in the organization will be Georgia and Ukraine. This is from 700 to 1800 km. from Moscow. Thank God that Crimea was saved and the Black Sea Fleet was preserved.
    All 28 states individually and future NATO members can organize provocations, including military ones, and by answering them we automatically get involved in a war with the entire alliance. And above all with the UK and the USA. Poles, Latvians, Lithuanians, etc. are already preparing these provocations. Not far off and their execution. Ukraine is actually occupied by the USA and Germany, and furious subversive work is going on against Belarus in order to break it off from Russia in the very near future. In Georgia, secret Pentagon bio-laboratories, etc., etc.

    Forward and with the song! Only it is better not in a thousand, but in ten at once. Or twenty, or a hundred. So that after a few years they already borrowed money from us, and not we from them, for the maintenance of this whole horde. Plus the "delight" of local residents from the presence of so many occupation troops.

    Go ahead, step up. Already 500 warriors! Just a guard. Nothing, with one shell we’ll release more.

      Yeah, shells spend on them. No. Let's give the guys some "peas" - they'll cripple them with slingshots ... laughing

    A very correct decision. The NATO allies, together with the Lithuanian army and the Lithuanian Riflemen's Union, are sufficient forces so that it would not be common in Lithuania to arrange "our Crimea".


    Forget, and do not dream that Russia will come, and the Baltic states will multiply, shouting that they have been occupied. will die out soon. Russia doesn’t need you, but I think Europe doesn’t need it either, Industry, no minerals, live in the backyards, on EU handouts. when you try to show yours, I’m deployed, they are bent and taken away, and they will make me say thanks.
    And personally for your country. you need to be ready to return the captured lands of Germany, Poland, Belarus.
    Explain what the hell the balts of Russia surrendered to, and if you suddenly need it, then it’s easier to buy the entire Baltic from Europe, as was usually the case in history.

      In fact, already bought from Sweden. Will it be bold? Pay 2 for such an asset, or rather a liability.
      Why do we need this ballast?

    My friend, you are not Aivaras Abromavicius for an hour, why did I think that ?. time is like working, all Lithuanians should work, unlike Russian loafers, but one Lithuanian did not resign long ago, and now, accordingly, without work, he has nothing to do in VO.

    Well, who would doubt that they would not approve such a proposal. They are all like mongrels on a leash, and besides, they are cowardly and intimidated. lol

    "Military planners will consult on the scope and composition of this expanded military presence starting this spring," the secretary general added.

    Given that Stoltenberg is an absolute jacket, who became secretary general for Merkel’s protégé, who they’ll plan for him with mattresses, he might enter a story that there will be no one to read in Europe.

    NATO goes south-north.
    In Lithuania and Latvia, the infrastructure has been "pulled" to the border of the Russian Federation for several years now. In Daugavpils, the issue of putting into operation an "international airport" on the site of the former airfield of the Air Force in Lociki has been resolved.
    It is very likely that bacteriological weapons are being deployed around the perimeter.
    Why does ASF not happen in the USA?

    But is it worth trusting the words of Stoltenberg? Say something he can anything ...

    Basically, they lie, the principle of work is this - to blur your eyes, and then do it your way. They sang songs like a hunchback "about not expanding to the east". So what? Already on the threshold, they are already climbing into the windows.
