Media: Obama will hold a meeting with the leaders of the Nordic countries under the sign of the "Russian threat"

39
Tomorrow in Washington, Barack Obama will meet with the leaders of Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland, this event is “most relevant in light of the growing tensions with Russia,” writes US Navy spokesman Mark Sipe in his article for the portal War on the Rocks ".




“In order for the summit to be successful, the heads of six states must thoughtfully discuss measures to further contain Russian aggression, including methods of intimidation and improving interaction with each other,” Sipa quotes the channel RT.

According to him, “the moment for the meeting was chosen as well as possible, because quite recently Russian pilots flew at low-level flight over the destroyer Donald Cook and made a barrel over an American reconnaissance aircraft.”

“In addition, Sergey Lavrov warned Sweden that if it joins NATO, Russia will have to build up forces on the western frontiers. And the Finnish government, worrying about its eastern neighbor, began to openly explore the possibility of joining the North Atlantic Alliance, ”the author writes.

“Thus, a frank dialogue about Russia and about what these six countries can and should do to deter further aggression should be central to this summit,” said Sipe.

He notes that there are a number of difficulties in relations between the United States and Northern Europe: “In particular, Denmark, Norway and Iceland are members of NATO, and Sweden and Finland are not, although according to polls, public opinion in these countries is increasingly inclined to join the alliance . However, at the moment, the neutrality of Sweden and Finland prevents the military personnel of these countries from undergoing regular training with their American counterparts. It is also unclear whether Stockholm and Helsinki will participate in NATO’s plans to protect the Baltic States from Russia. ”

The author points out that now "the US military presence" cannot be compared with the impressive forces of Russia "and only reinforces the impression that the United States is only temporarily concerned about the security of the region."

In his opinion, "the continued and more substantial presence of the US military should, together with other measures, force Russia to re-calculate what the current aggressive actions will cost it."

At the same time, America "should make it clear to Moscow that the alignment can be reconsidered if the Russian leadership returns to more constructive relations with its neighbors."

The author is sure: the northern "five" is simply "obliged to participate in the intimidation of Russia." This "will give confidence not only to them, but to the entire region."

“The contribution of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland can be quite substantial: together they have 84-thousand armed forces and similar military equipment, usually American-style. However, it remains unclear how ready they are to participate in the conflict, even though the growing threat from Russia concerns them all, ”concludes Sip.

    Well what can I say, Russia really threatens US hegemony. The question is how smart the leaders of the Nordic countries will be to understand that Russia is not going to dictate their living conditions, unlike the United States.

        It seems to me that Obama will soon yell: "The Russians are surrounding" and will shoot himself with a traumatic pistol.

    "and did a barrel roll over the American reconnaissance aircraft."
    This is an occasion for a nuclear war ...
    But in general, Russia's aggression to protect its borders has no limits.

      In the "Finnish War" of 1940, the Finns spoiled the blood of the Union a lot, if Sweden and Finland join NATO, it will be a failure in Russia's foreign policy.

    make it clear to Moscow that the alignment may be revised if the Russian leadership returns to a more constructive relationship with its neighbors

    Who offended their poor fellow? But certainly not Russia ..
    But who provokes it is quite obvious - the USA.

    "... the northern" five "are simply" obliged to participate in intimidating Russia. "

    But they will find means and methods to "persuade" both the Finns and the Swedes, and if they do not obey the "sanctions" they will introduce am

    German Sadulayev: “The biggest mistake is to neglect the Russians. Find the Russians weak. Offend the Russians. Never offend Russians. Russians are never as weak as you think. God forbid to expel the Russians or take something from the Russians. Russians always come back. The Russians will return and return their own. But when the Russians return, they do not know how to calculate the force and apply it proportionally. They destroy everything in their path. ”

    Stop!! I don’t understand ?! Where are the main ones: Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia? After all, they are the "highlight of the program", because of them and with their submission, all this fuss. They ate the dog on "frightening" Russia.
    PS Although Iceland is far from us, are we so much afraid of her?

    Gather meat. If the northern countries remember the history of campaigns in Russia, they will not lead to provocation. And if not, then the meat will turn into rotten meat.

    There is no need to even go to the grandmother - Sweden and Finland will join NATO in the near future. The soil has already been created. And the north environment will end, the Nazi Balts, by definition, the Russians hate that there is nothing in NATO.

    All this is not funny.
    That Finns and Swedes will be drawn into NATO, it will not be fun.
    It's not about fear. The point is finally losing our positions at the borders.
    Our foreign ministry completely failed the system of state neutrality. And why?
    We need to work with governments, the public, the media and political and industrial circles.
    Scored for everything!
    Ukraine profiled.
    Well, inside, Putin threw everything to chance.
    (The guys need to finish with the cuts for a long time .. With Manturov, Chubais, Medvedev, Shuvalov and co.)
    Gross domestic product falls.
    At the same time, I do not see any breakthroughs in foreign policy. Everything is going downhill for now. Facts.
    They rushed to the Chinese, but did they need us? No and were blown away. Now the second branch of the pipeline is wrapped in the northern stream.

      You’re right, not funny. Especially if you come from the one-sidedness of your conclusions with an amazing ability not to notice the high-quality achievements of our foreign policy. Yes, I want some of us to have sausages that have to be picked up from the ground, kneeling. You are angry, dear, all-propagandist You.Smutyan. This is despite the fact that we are similar in opinion on domestic policy. Not everything is good in the Russian state. And the rest, my friend, you fill in. stop negative

    The usual nonsense of the Western media. Nothing serious. Our Aerospace Forces and the Navy need to show the flag more often due to enemy and "partner" borders. And drive us from our borders with ss. Rags. Then the ambition will diminish.

    “For the summit to be successful, the heads of six states must carefully discuss measures to further deter Russian aggression,” including intimidation methods and improved interaction together", - quotes Sip channel RT.
    I understood correctly - they will discuss the improvement of methods of intimidation of each other? they frightened themselves; they themselves developed a way out of fright. and Russia and its aggression are to blame. HEALTHY.
