Expert: If Sweden joins NATO, Russia will have to strengthen its grouping in the north-west of the country

If Sweden joins NATO, then Russia will be forced to strengthen its grouping in the northwest, including through the deployment of Iskander complexes and the renewal of the composition of the Baltic ships fleettransmits RIA News the comment of the editor-in-chief of the magazine “National Defense”, expert Igor Korotchenko.

“In the first place, such a military infrastructure of Sweden, such as airfields, naval bases, electronic intelligence centers, which can be used by the combined NATO forces in Europe for possible aggressive actions against Russia, can pose a threat to Russia,” Korotchenko noted.

These facilities may become potential targets for the Russian armed forces.

“In the light of Sweden’s possible entry into NATO, it is worthwhile to reinforce the grouping of the Russian Armed Forces in the north-west, as well as update the combat strength of the Baltic Fleet by including surface ships and submarines equipped with sea-class cruise missiles,” - he said.

In his opinion, Russia may need another brigade in the ZVO equipped with the Iskander-M OTRK, in addition, it may be necessary to deploy "Bastion" coastal anti-ship complexes in the territory of the Kaliningrad Region. "

So Korochenko commented on the words of Sergei Lavrov, who told the Dagens Nykheter publication that “if Sweden joins NATO, Moscow will have to respond to this with military-technical measures on its northern borders.”

        Actually, when were we friends with Sweden? As far as my memory serves me since the 13th century, there has been tension with them, there is still a debate about Svalbard-Grumant.

              Speaking of countries joining NATO under the leadership of the Pentagon along the entire perimeter of the borders of the Russian Federation, it is necessary not only to clearly understand the geopolitics of the United States, to respond to it with military warning measures, but first of all to be included in a hybrid war on the information front of the West against Russia. We must try to win the war informationally, even before its armed start. That's how?
              It is noteworthy that while citizens of the USSR were stuffed to a certain degree with erroneous m / l. theories, in the West, such a science as geopolitics has been developed, which has actually been at least 400 years old. But I won’t stop there, I’ll just say the main thing, because if we don’t understand the rules of this geopolitical “game” of the West with Russia and If we do not develop adequate protection measures for ourselves, then Russia can really lose the information war.
              So. The geopolitics of the United States and the collective West view any situation in the world through the logical prism of the confrontation between Russia and the West in the framework of the great war of the CONTINENTS. They divide the world into 2 civilization camps - the Atlantic, moderated by the United States (or rather, the US Federal Reserve) and the Eurasian, with Russia at its center. The Atlantic evolved like the civilization of the SEA with its inherent predatory raids on peoples on various coasts of SUSHI cultivation. The Eurasian one evolved as a SUSHI civilization. And so it went on for centuries. Civilization of the SEA robbed the SUSHI civilization. The task of the SEA civilization is to enslave the SUSHI civilization - and, above all, as task No. 1, Russia and the Russian people, who cement it as a sovereign state, as the 2-th center of power. From here in the West fierce Russophobia is brought up under any political economy. system of Russia.
              Therefore, Westerners are completely unimportant whether international laws and regulations are respected or not respected. right anywhere - but, of course, not in their countries! - and what politic. forces there are participating in domestic politics. processes (terrorists, fascists, ethnic-nationalists, Islamists), and is it democratic or not. For the West, the MAIN THING is done in the geopolitical interests of the West (USA) or in the interests of Russia. The same attitude of the USA towards the EU countries. The United States simply needs to have free space to ensure the life of its global globalist elite, to which the US Federal Reserve financial capitalists belong.
              At the same time, the Western approach of the Atlantists to the Eurasian space in general, and especially to Russia, strictly fits into the Anaconda strategy developed by General McClellan during the US Civil War. This increment of economic well-being (USA) is the main goal of the war; avoiding a direct collision with your opponent and attracting ALLIES for this and with THEIR help - KILLING the consequences of actions taken for the sake of profit (first of all, for the USA itself). All this involves surrounding and “strangling” the enemy, like an anaconda snake (the snake surrounded the ring and strangled the prey, the prey went to the hunter, the snake remained hungry and again in search of prey, which the hunter would point to her), by cutting him off from any external ones, first turn of economic contacts.
              In the course of passive aggression against Russia, the US is trying to “strangle” Russia, cut it off from all possible contacts and do it at its expense. For the Russian Federation to spend in an arms race and run out of steam economically, as well as for an ally to come under complete enslaving control, external control and submission to the United States. Any fool today understands that America is the real enemy of Russia and the EU.

          Note almost all territorial claims against us. It turns out they have little land, and the other is not ..... here they climb. The Swedes wisely stood aside in the 20th century, otherwise they would have looked different now. And if they enter, then the Finns at the same time. Although there is no common border with the Sveami. Somewhere already an inner voice tells - Nata expands and moves to our borders so as not to die, otherwise it will burst like a soap bubble .

          And so they have a fleet, he also needs to pay attention - incite to an arms race or enough courage?

        The Russian Federation is currently completing the development of the latest generation of missiles invulnerable to NATO weapons, in particular missile defense systems, they can be deployed on the northern borders of Russia if Sweden joins NATO.

      He was a tourist in Stockholm in August. I went on a bus to all the islands where the city stands as part of a Russian-speaking tour. When a monument passed to Charles XII, the guide explained that it was a monument to the king, the most unloved by the Swedes, he managed to pump over a bunch of territories and all of Russia for his rule. I think that everything goes to the fact that they will have a monument to the next unloved ruler laughing

    More Iskander needed to be built, why is Yarsov only in 2015 24 missiles put on combat duty, and Iskander since 2006 for 10 years only 72 launchers (8 launchers per year)?
    Are they so expensive and so hard and difficult to build?
    On a national scale, 72 launchers are a drop in the bucket, in 10 years they should have produced 400-500 pieces ...
    It is very reckless, because Russia has more tactical nuclear weapons than strategic weapons and it is necessary to have large delivery vehicles.

      72 launchers is a drop in the bucket

      In this regard, I have an amateurish question: since missile weapons in Europe will (God forbid) be used only in a global (i.e., nuclear) conflict, non-nuclear equipment, especially in such a modest amount, does not create, in my opinion, almost no additional potential - 72 installations - 144 missiles, half will not survive until the second salvo, let 200 missiles - 200 targets - in a non-nuclear version - this is "nothing". Or does everyone imply nuclear equipment, but hesitate to say?

        Well, not always, for example, 1 Iskander rocket is capable of blowing up the runway thereby making it impossible to take off and land aircraft (a large diameter funnel is formed in the middle of the runway)
        The same thing with naval military bases, several missiles can destroy all ships located at the pier.

          Well, not always

          You are opposing yourself: say that there are few launchers (which I agree with in terms of the significance of the existing number), and at the same time that one missile is capable of causing significant damage. One - yes, for one purpose - the runway, but there are two of them on the normal airfield, there are not a lot of airfields and prepared sections of motorways in Europe; one rocket - one ship at the mooring wall (even two standing side to side, but this is Munchausen); one radar post; one warehouse, etc.
          Who argues, the rocket is (apparently) good, but I don’t see a significant influence on the balance of power in non-nuclear performance, and Europeans are worried, so the question is apparently. still in nuclear performance?

    And why more than 12-15 launchers to Sweden? These are 24-30 missiles in a salvo. Only OTRK to fight? Very expensive. There is such a principle, reasonable sufficiency. To destroy the radar, airfields, headquarters, you can spend an expensive missile. All less important targets are removed from the tactical map with ordinary iron from the same su-34.
    Even if a missile defense system is deployed in Sweden, the probability of defeat will still be 30-50%. For two or three massive strikes, you can leave the enemy without stationary radars and good airfields. And missile defense positions.
