NATO is preparing to form battalion tactical groups in Poland and the Baltic States and create a flotilla on the Black Sea

37
The NATO Military Committee approved a project to create battalion tactical groups in the Baltic countries and Poland. This information is confirmed by the Lithuanian brigade-general Gintautas Zenkevicius, adding that similar army units will be created in other countries on the eastern borders of the North Atlantic Alliance.


Information Service BNS cites a statement by General Zenkevicius:
The commanders of the armed forces discussed this reinforced military presence in the Baltic states and Poland, in Romania and Bulgaria. The NATO Commanders-in-Chief agreed to make a military recommendation to the ministers that the units should be a battalion-size tactical group in the Baltic states and Poland.


NATO is preparing to form battalion tactical groups in Poland and the Baltic States and create a flotilla on the Black Sea


This recommendation was reportedly noted by the Ministers of Defense of the Baltic countries and Poland, and the creation of battalion tactical groups near the borders of the Russian Federation will begin after the recommendations are approved by the NATO leadership. The final decision will be made in June.

According to Zenkevicius, each battalion tactical group will include about a thousand soldiers. And these soldiers will be from different NATO countries. According to the statements of the Baltic military, Germany will make the greatest contribution to the formation of new formations.
In addition, it is noted that the authorities of Bulgaria and Romania asked Brussels to place NATO in the Black Sea flotilla. It should be noted that a similar proposal was previously made by Ukraine, whose authorities are trying to draw countries into the North Atlantic military bloc.

        "According to the statements of the Baltic military, Germany will make the greatest contribution to the formation of new formations."

        Apparently the Germans missed the war the most! Only the Bundeswehr is far from the Wehrmacht, and the Reisk Chancellor clearly falls short of Hitler. For the Minister of Defense I will not say anything at all, with such a minister the Germans will fight a lot. Machine guns are cuttings from shovels, planes do not fly, and the population now has a problem with migrants, and not another "Drang nach Osten" to arrange!

        No one will drape. And, most likely, nowhere.

        I believe that the Russian government should give a clear signal to Washington that, in the event of a war in Europe, the United States, as the leader of NATO and the main instigator of the war, will not stay overseas. Get a full blow of retaliation! It is high time to quit the bush, the aggressor must be aware of his full responsibility.

      Suddenly I thought something: everyone was accustomed to what the Americans and NATO as a whole decide - where and with whom they will unleash a local conflict or war, and the rest (and we too) are already responding to their antics. I can imagine WHAT hysteria will begin in the Baltic states, dill, and throughout Europe, if we suddenly declare that we have decided to do everything that they have been accusing us for a long time and suspect that their words about our aggression will become true. And the hour is already set. I think the Atlantic will come ashore from a massive swim in the States. And then we’ll announce - we’ve changed our minds, New Year is coming soon ...

        Yes, no one denies this about weapons. But he is also opposed, after all, not with a bow and arrow, and sometimes even more complex, powerful and effective. And the second one. Who will fight there? Those that go in diapers and thongs? Those that, at -8 degrees, no longer fight. In Europe there was one true soldier, this is a German! But even then, he was a soldier in the Wehrmacht, but not in the Bundeswehr. For the rest, I will not say anything at all.

    Dear, it was about this that it was said that all NATO statements about super-rapid reaction forces will lead to what we have, further I am sure there will be a quantitative and qualitative increase, saturation, up to the creation of several missile defense areas, the deployment of "combat" divisions and other measures aimed primarily at approaching the borders of Russia, strengthening the military presence, on an ongoing basis

      Everything is very sad somehow - you need to add a bit of humor (I don’t know, maybe it was already, but I liked it)

      "Paratrooper
      The main feature is impudence. "The main thing is to get into a fight, and we'll see." The individualist, although not by any means, was used to the fact that "if cho" - you have to figure it out yourself. such a habit instills in the soul of the paratrooper some kind of poignancy - with a similar number of people and a close set of equipment left to guard, without direct contact with neighbors, the company-motorized infantry will scold the authorities for indifference and require all kinds of support, the company-infantry paratrooper will spit on the ceiling " keep in mind "all the spirits of the province. Sometimes this attitude leads to unpleasant consequences, yes.
      Motor gunner
      The main feature is thoroughness. First intelligence. Then a head watch. Then you can stretch yourself. Aware of their own significance and importance - for everything else on the battlefield is called upon to support and ensure the actions of His Infantry Majesty. The paratroopers do not like and considers upstarts, rightly believing that the truth is not in physical strength. Motorized rifle truth is an organization, coordination and interaction. And here the paratroopers are already envious - they don’t have to rely on such an all-devastating artillery power or unbreakable tank foreheads. Collectivist. Not like a sailor, but quite.
      Gunner
      The main feature is prudence. What, where, how much, at what time ... An intellectual can equally successfully cover without repeating high-rise, and discuss the work of Matisse and Picasso. In love with technological progress; new items and improvements, especially those that can be sacrificed to the God of Fire Performance, lead him into ecstasy. In the absence of a centralized supply of new products, it is able to build a battery fire control system from a laptop and three PDAs, after which it will joyfully share the invention with all colleagues.
      Tankman
      The main feature is slowness (not to be confused with slowness). It’s similar to a motorized rifle - without preliminary reconnaissance it will not go on the road, while half the terrain will be declared tank inaccessible ahead of time, and it will not be possible to drag it there even on the lasso. Slowness, however, is crocodile, very deceiving. When a fraught situation arises, it instantly accelerates and erases the enemy into powder. Also a collectivist, but on my mind.
      Pilot
      The main feature is curiosity. A child who catches up to his favorite toy and spits down on the unfortunate who do not. An extreme individualist - as always (in most cases) alone. Comrades on the link, stretching for a couple of hundred kilometers along the front and fifty in depth - rather an abstraction on the air, and the reality is only him and his plane. He doesn’t perceive strangers, either ignores them or feeds them with bikes of varying degrees of improbability, and only after accepting as his own begins to speak normally. All the explorers deeply envy him and generally do not like him, although deep down they consider the creature very useful.

        I will continue
        Antiaircrafter
        The main feature is harmfulness. The one who did not buy a plane in childhood, or was not taken as a health pilot in his youth. He hates everything flying, from ravens to companions organically and considers it necessary to destroy them. He loves the times when people, like travelers, traveled across the seas on solid liners, and pilots were considered circus performers and stuntmen. However, he himself does not want to in these times - no less an artilleryman is obsessed with modern electronics, but where to get it in that beautiful era?
        Sailor
        The main feature is restlessness. It’s also a child, only not getting to the toy but to the Adventure, about which he had dreamed all his life. Extreme collectivist, worse motorized rifle. Artelno does everything - from moonshining and moonshooting, to direct duties, for such is the specificity of the service. No less than the artilleryman and air defense adore modern machinery, but never admit it, preferring to show a penchant for ancient romance of sails, copper cannons and manila cables.
        Rocketeer
        The main feature is perseverance. Looks down upon strangers, considers all other troops obsolete and unnecessary. He loves technological progress and machinery no less than the Gunner, especially the one with the buttons. Fatalist, which is not surprising. Often drinks tea with cookies.
        Signaller
        The main feature is laziness. For the right signalmen, laziness is creative - it is not visible, not heard, but everything works. Maverick. According to ill-wishers, the master is pushing problems ("The queue left me without delay!"). In his own opinion, he’s not going to climb without demand for an unfamiliar site, where he will do more than correct. He loves new technology, but periodically defiantly ... or from the heart - who will understand it? - nostalgic for spark stations.
        Sapper
        Friendliness is the main feature. Good wizard of the armed forces. Appears at the right time, does his good deed and leaves to help other needy.
        Possesses secret knowledge in the field of digging, burying, blasting, mining, etc. If the minefield for a tanker and a motorized rifleman is: "That's it, piz..ts, we have arrived," then for a sapper - six hundred kilograms of TNT - "there will be something to heat the stove with." He treats modern technology with strong irony, relying on the good old: a shovel, an ax and explosives, with the help of which he does his magic. From a motorized rifle he differs from a motorized rifle in a complete lack of a sense of collectivism. Although, if necessary, he can plow everyone he catches. Piously honors Safety Engineering. Mistakes only once in a lifetime. "

And from the apartment’s window, across the Neman River, Lithuania, Mordor is unfinished.

    I see no reason in these troops, except for provocation and bashing of Russia's nerves. From its territory, the Russian army will pass like a hurricane throughout the Baltic states and, God forbid, have time to slow down before the Polish border. There is only one question - why does she need this? And there is only one answer - well, it is not necessary at point blank range! Therefore, this group plays only a political role. Do not pay attention.

    It will be uncomfortable for a flotilla on the Black Sea, from the territory of the Crimea it is shot in all directions, and for the aviation of the Black Sea Fleet this is the native sky. All these attempts, with the hasty deployment of operetta troops, indicate the inability of the alliance to quickly respond to the changing situation in the European theater of operations. The bloc has turned from a military organization into an office of Horns and Hooves, it has a lot of weapons, a lot of paperwork, but bureaucratic procedures are long and ineffective.

    BTGs are 1-2 companies with battalion reinforcements. Four BTGs - almost a regiment, but without artillery and reconnaissance equipment. What are they preparing for them - to follow the backs of the Baltic states and Poles and kick them in Russian? Or to guard the bases?
    The Black Sea flotilla is a good thing, but in which case it will turn into dust in half an hour. And our coastal complexes simply will not allow anyone to leave the raid. This does not include calibers of various basing. That's why the Crimea is ours again, because you can get all the same from it.
    Particularly pleased with the contented idiocy of the authorities of all these pseudo-independents. It comes to the point - they will cover their countries with such a copper basin that for another three hundred years only cockroaches will march. And then the Western Geyropa will grab a portion of lyuli. But if the Yankees think that it will not reach them, then they are right. To them will whistle in hypersound. Or even supersonic. And not necessarily from Earth, but also from orbit.

    Jacob Kedmi: Any war against Russia will be on American territory
    The following one after the other - in a tedious succession - "hints about punishment", statements and even threats from the West towards Russia are analyzed in the studio of the Israeli TV channel ITON.TV by an emigrant from the USSR, a person with a very peculiar attitude to Russia - Yakov Kedmi. And, nevertheless, it is from his lips - the lips of the head, in the recent past, of one of the Israeli special services - that we hear harsh assessments expressed ... in a low voice.

    J. Kedmi says: "Any war in Europe will be on American territory," directly warning the United States that any gamble against Russia will result in a blow not to American satellites that have proliferated along our borders, but to the United States itself and its facilities around the world. The States will no longer be able to cover themselves with a "screen" from the "allies" - the Russians will beat "the headquarters":
    The conclusions from this conversation can be made quite specific.

    The United States and the collective West, in general, will not fight against Russia - there is neither courage, nor strength, nor prospects, because their defeat lies ahead. On their own territory. And do they need it even if they can deliver powerful blows to Russia? "Save our ass" is their motto!

    Just remember how the "courageous Anglo-Saxons" skied from Thermopylae (Greece) and from Dunkirk (France) at the very beginning of the Second World War in Europe ?! The heels were sparkling!

    And yesterday, the British special forces - special forces, Carl! - cleaned the kettles in Libya near the Islamist-controlled city of Sirte personally ISIS / DAISH terrorist fighters. Drap, again, was recorded by a noble - with the loss of the wounded and prisoners. The London media is silent about this, but sooner or later information will leak. While focusing on sources from Libya.
    And how did the Anglo-French treaty of military assistance to Poland help Poland itself when Hitler attacked it on September 1, 1939? Not a single English and French soldier did not move! Underpants...

    Therefore, they - the haters of Russia - will work, as in the XNUMXth century, stealthily, including the full power of their subversive work on our land.

    The US Ambassador rushes about like a madman across the regions of Russia, assessing the "protest potential" that, according to his reports to Washington, can be provoked already during the next elections to the State Duma. In response, Tefft received the National Guard.

    Nuland in Ukraine is preparing his "fighters for justice and against it." But, will they have enough courage to face the regular army of the Russian Federation, which will end this campaign wherever it wants?

    NATO is "frowning" and is catching up with thousands of fighters in the territories adjacent to our borders - they have already appeared in Moldova and the Baltic states. Not to mention Poland and Romania ...

    In the states of Central Asia, the situation is far from ideal - only evaluate the underlying processes in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan ...

    In the Caucasus, the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh is shaking with an eye to the North.
    And so, in this strategic situation, Yakov Kedmi says that Russia "will not babysit" and will immediately hit the United States if these American games ignite our borders through the use of other people's hands and forces by the Yankees, which is a direct continuation of the policy USA under the name "management from behind" - "leading from behiend", which we wrote about in the material "" Leading from behind "=" skillful manipulation "".

    Let only the ships of their flotilla do not go next to each other, otherwise suddenly by accident or not by chance some
