            Finland is not a member of NATO

            This NATO is now in Finland.
            And apparently it is for a long time.
            Independence is a luxury that is too tough for finals.

          Finland wants to forget what a calm (neutral) life is ?! Or wants to get on the list of priority goals? Or lose a profitable trading partner? These questions are worth asking the leadership of Suomi. Let them think with their own head, and not lick the black ass.

          I do not agree with this. They are not and ... diots. They are doing their job to contain Russia, and at the same time they are working successfully: they overthrow disliked regimes, put puppets in governments, set up military bases around the world, oil prices have fallen, a lot of conflicts have been fired up.
          We are competitors with the West, and they are embracing us from all sides.

            Containment and pressure on Russia is always a priority for mattresses. Their, at first glance, stupid actions, nothing more than steps to implement their ideas.

            To begin with, the exercises for the whole year with all the details. It seems from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation such data was required. That's where you should begin to learn arrogance from NATO.

          Operation Atlantic Resolve
          http://www.geopolitica.ru/article/operaciya-atlanticheskaya-reshimost#.VsLdS7SLQ
          rg

          - officially the Atlantic Resolve operation (Atlantic determination) was launched under the auspices of NATO in April last year in three Baltic countries and Poland at the initiative of the United States. The reason was the statement by Washington that it was necessary to demonstrate its commitment to NATO, as the region was faced with a “new, but familiar threat."
          The United States called Russia this threat, although a plan to increase the US military presence in Eastern Europe was agreed before the Crimean referendum. The operation was officially announced in April 2014.

          - the old principle of creating a sanitary cordon is also on the agenda for Washington ...
          - Disinformation and propaganda is part of Operation Atlantic Resolve. The form in which Russia was presented by public and media organizations controlled by Washington, provoked a deterioration in Russia's image, any actions of which are perceived as "provocative", while US actions are presented as "joint efforts" and peacekeeping.
          - Obviously, Operation Atlantic Resolve can be perceived as a declaration of Cold War-2 to Russia and its allies. For, as General Donald Campbell said of the operation itself, "it will be for an indefinite period."

Our squadron was planted there after taking the wounded out from under the village of Nizhne-Mikhailovskaya (events on Damansky Island). Two more were found participating in the An-14 in those events.
