Military Review

Peskov commented on the statement of the American president about the absence of a threat to Russia from NATO

Commenting on Obama’s words about the absence of a threat to Moscow from NATO, the spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that in addition to the rhetoric of Brussels, the Alliance’s forces are approaching the borders of the Russian Federation, reports RIA News.

Earlier, Obama said that NATO does not threaten Russia, and “cooperation with a united and strong Europe would be in Moscow’s interests.” However, in his opinion, Putin "as a rule, considered NATO, the EU, transatlantic unity as a threat to Russian power."

“As for who is a danger for whom, then here, probably, we should not forget constantly heard from Brussels, from headquarters, and from the members of the leadership of this organization - I mean NATO - that it is Russia that they regard as a danger. And these statements are not limited to words, we see the steps taken to increase the military potential, to bring this military potential closer to the Russian borders, so here in this case it is enough just to state those facts that are obvious ”,
said Sands.

According to him, "Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stressed in various cases the desire of Russia to build mutually beneficial, kind, constructive relations with all countries of the world."

Recently, at the All-Russian Popular Front Forum, Putin declared that “Russia as an independent player who knows his own worth and has his own interests doesn’t need a player.” At the same time, he noted that Moscow "will not allow the loss of state sovereignty." We are “ready to compromise and take into account the interests of others, but we expect the same from our partners,” the president added.

            NATO (and, more generally, Europe) is and has been an existential eternal threat to Russia and generally to Eurasia

            And regularly went with the sword and war to the east - this eternal drang tries

            Now a break for one reason - SNF

            If technology changes - wait again for this drang of theirs ..

            Reasoning that Europe is peaceful, that the people there have lost the Teutonic valor, and so on are simply naive

            There will be no nuclear deterrence - NATO’s iron fist -Europe will enter Eurasia from Belarus and Russia - and again everything will be repeated - and even the Kyrgyz and Mongols will have to fight

                Sorry, Mongolia and the Mongols have a great military history. Historically, Turkic tribes came out of the territory of Mongolia that were part of the Golden Horde project - one of the greatest in history.

                The conflict at Khalkhin Gol began with the battles between the Khalkh and the barguzins - just someone called Yap for help and someone called their blood brothers the descendants of the Golden Horde in the person of Marshal Zhukov and the Soviet Army

                In World War II - when the enemy was standing near Moscow - to say that Mongolia did not fight - the language will not turn around - who then fought? Mongolia then supplied for the defense of Moscow more than the entire land lease of Amer and Naglosak

                The entire Panfilov and other divisions were in Mongolian short fur coats and boots - and the horses were all Mongolian almost

                And the Mongols themselves took weapons and went against the Japanese - practically as part of the Soviet army - the head of almost every Mongol detachment was a Soviet officer (as I was told very often by a Kazakh or Central Asian)

      What is NATO essentially? If you look at NATO, it’s Germans, French, Italians, not one of these nations will not fall for Russia, the United States can’t fight across the ocean either, the rest of the pack of sixes and popolisos doesn’t count at all. Now Russia in its current form is not at all tough, it can rob the banana republics. The Kremlin is well aware of this.

        Investor! 18.21. Europe on cats (Arabs) has already been trained. Cats (Arabs) ran to them. Perhaps NATO will not trample on us. Perhaps in Europe will begin a meat grinder between Arabs and local. The USA will eliminate itself (these are your internal disassemblies). And the chaos similar to Libyan on hand to us? Let's look at the outskirts. Trade relations with Russia are dead, there is a self-destruction of the population. Is it profitable for us? No. With the chaos in Europe, we will no longer trade with Europe even without sanctions. By joining NATO, Europe caved in under the United States. And how not to bend if the United States gave loans. Becoming to bomb the Arabs, Europe has come under the blow of the Arabs. Surprisingly, the Arabs in the overwhelming mass flee to their offenders. Doesn't lead to any thoughts? Is this a coincidence? Maybe NATO will not attack us. But for some reason, quite by accident, Europe is pumping arms and refugees at the same time. Even if the Europeans kill each other, we would not be better off.

Constantly sitting on the defensive is to postpone the date of his death. It is time for us to step towards our dearly beloved partners. Let's hope Syria is our reconnaissance in battle.

    Stalin also considered Hitler almost a friend. However, for his mistake, the Russian people paid not a little blood. There is no Warsaw Pact, dissolve NATO, then there will be no threat. In the meantime, there are threats at the borders of Russia. And this requires the adoption of appropriate measures.

      Dear, surprised! Iosif Vissarionovich of such friends ... well, before Chuguev with cancer ... So he wanted to delay the beginning of the war, considering the country not ready, and acted accordingly. As a result, the Covenant-Ribbentrop Pact, a huge diplomatic victory at the time. The Soviet people, which included the Russian people, paid in great blood to the war. As for the dissolution of NATO, such a proposal was already made in the 60s and 70s by the Soviet leaders in response to NATO's "peace-loving" grins.

      This is not true of course. We all understand that the IVS was one of the experts in geopolitics and such naive thoughts simply could not come to his mind.

      Europe has always been an enemy and aggressor - from the time of Nevsky and the Crusaders with enviable regularity, the Poles then the French and Germans tried to lead the drang

      But the most important always aggressor was ALL EUROPE. Not the Germans are not the French separately - but always together - both Napoleon and Hitler have everything - from the Spaniards to the Scandinavians with Romanians and Italians

    The United States has been unleashing wars around the world constantly since the end of the 19th century: Nicaragua, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Panama, Honduras, Mexico, Guatemala, Laos, Vietnam, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Korea, El Salvador, Cambodia, Yugoslavia ... yes they are in 1917 year and fought with Russia: landed in Arkhangelsk and Vladivostok.
    A peaceful state will not wage constantly aggressive wars. We must say bluntly: the states are the source and center of evil, the invading state. And it must be said officially!

    Who will believe you such a deceit? Forgot your eneuresis during the Cuban missile crisis? How many years have we been living with your missiles and bases close by? It's not enough for you, you need to move closer to Russia. You will receive our answer and not only in words. A couple of container ships in Cuba and your missile defense system you will urgently deploy not in Poland, but in Florida. Moreover, we will make a "leak" in the media that a dozen containers are already in the USA. Search! Do you need new territories? There, master the moon, no one will tell you a word there. Not yet.

    Obama's cheerful impudence is amazing! He failed to convince Putin of friendly feelings! No, he doesn’t understand. The best friend after Ebola did not understand that he was spread rot by loving. They are trying so hard to show a friendly disposition. They will either leave the missile defense system, or blame it for the downing of a Boeing, then the troops will be sent to the Baltic states, then they will be kicked out of the eight, then they will be deprived of their words in the PACE, then they will arrange a coup in Ukraine with the subsequent promotion of Bandera, then ... you can list for a long time. And stupid Putin will not understand that he was overlaid with bases from all sides for friendship, loving.

    The United States (you can not talk about NATO here, in fact it is one and the same, with the exception of minor nuances) do not need equal partners, they need vassals. And they do not tolerate Russia because only it alone can defend (and does so) its interests on any issues. Americans have forgotten how to agree on an equal footing. They are used to crushing by economic or military means. It is difficult for them to put pressure on two countries - Russia and China. But Russia has one advantage - this is the only country that can physically destroy the United States, even at the cost of its own life. And the Americans do not accept this, as long as they feel within themselves the slightest opportunity to ruin Russia. Exits from this situation:
    - they manage to destroy Russia and China will be crushed on its resource base;
    - Russia, at the expense of its resources or in alliance with China, creates such a situation that the Americans will understand that trying to dump Russia will cost them too much - then they will learn to negotiate.

    The West has crossed the "red line" in relations with Russia. Crimea is Russia's natural reaction to the military coup in Kiev. I would say a very restrained reaction. The EU has nothing to fear from Russia, but the US debt is growing, and they will no longer be able to warm their hands on the war in Europe.

    NATO is a product of advanced capitalism and a lobby of arms campaigns and syndicates. If there is no NATO, who needs their weapons? And in order for this alliance to replenish the lobbyists' pockets from the arms business, it is necessary to create a terrible monster out of someone. This is where Hollywood, the New York Times, the BBC and so on and so forth come into play, right down to the geeks from Charlie.
