Algeria is moving closer to Russia

34
It is believed that the omnipresent Washington can destroy the Algerian statehood. He will do it in the old proven way: instigating riots and "color revolutions." In Algeria, this fear. The government of the country enhances security, improves military capabilities and actively contacts with Russia, hoping to strengthen ties with it, since it is part of a bloc standing on the other side of NATO.




This was told by the well-known publicist, author of seven books and Brandon Turbeville, the host of his own website. His new article is published on the portal. "Activist Post".

The Syrian crisis was delayed. There is no hope for a speedy return to normalcy in Libya. It's time to think and Algeria. Will he not be "in the crosshairs of the Anglo-American sight"?

According to the analyst, there is evidence that Algeria also has a sad fate.

Having survived an attempt to destabilize the situation during the “Arab spring” supported by the West, Algeria is doing everything possible to increase the level of security of the state.

With the help of a steel fist, the authorities of the country have previously stopped all attempts to destroy the functioning of the state with the help of color revolutions and chains of destabilization inspired from outside. However, even now, when the protests of the “Arab Spring” have subsided, the Algerian government is not resting. Algeria has strengthened national security measures, improved its military capabilities, and cooperates with its neighbors so that they do not fall under the sights of the creators of color revolutions.

In addition, Algeria decided to strengthen its ties with Russia and those countries that are part of the unofficial but growing anti-NATO bloc. In other words, Algeria is approaching entry into a group of countries that are counting on a multipolar world and are trying to act as a counterbalance to NATO, a publicist points out.

The two most famous examples of the expansion of cooperation between Algeria and anti-NATO are the recent acquisition by this country of four dozen military helicopters from Russia and the recent diplomatic visit to Syria of representatives of the Algerian government.

The Russian helicopter, known as the Night Hunter, is said to be one of the best in the world, and it is able to perform its tasks both day and night, even in adverse weather conditions.

The helicopter is delivered to the Algerians in the modification Mi-28HE. It provides redundant control: the pilot and the operator.

The supply of Russian helicopters to Algeria is nothing new, the author recalls. In 2005-2006 Russia provided Algeria with twenty-eight Su-30MKA fighters, sixteen Yak-130s and 185s tanks T-90S. In 2015, a contract was signed for the supply of 14 Su-30MKA fighters in 2016-2017. The transfer of Mi-28 helicopters is the result of a bilateral agreement between Russia and Algeria.

Therefore, in themselves, the new supply does not deserve close attention of the press. On the other hand, the context of these supplies is very important. Here the author sees the reason for the discussion.

Algeria is concerned about the increase in the activities of the militants "IG" in the region, in particular, in Libya and Tunisia. The attention of the Algerian authorities and focused on law enforcement at the borders with these two countries, as well as with the Niger and Mali - for the same reason. The Algerian government quickly responded to terrorist threats in the past, and now it is worried that Islamist militant attacks may lead to the latter’s crossing the border (including because some Western powers will in the future support “measures” aimed on the collapse of the state structures of Algeria).

In February, Algeria and Russia launched a plan to deepen bilateral military and economic cooperation, Turbeville said.

The movement of the IG forces in the region is important for the militants themselves: bearded men are trying to survive in this way and continue what they call "struggle." Relocating them to Libya, the journalist points out, citing an expert, needs Washington and its allies to implement the remaining Arab Spring projects, including destabilization and destruction of Algeria, Tunisia, and perhaps even a new attempt to destabilize and destroy Egypt.

The presence of "IG" in Libya, the White House can also be used as a pretext for a broad military intervention in Africa. This can openly enter the forces of the United States and its European allies.

That is why Algeria is preparing for a possible confrontation associated with the Western scenarios, according to which the outflow of IS militants from Syria to Libya is expected, and then on.

Algeria’s growing thirst for the “Russian bloc” is, according to the analyst, another sign that Washington is losing influence all over the world. The position taken by the United States and NATO is becoming increasingly untenable.

May 30, we add to this, in the central Russian press there were reports about the delivery to Algeria of the first pair of Russian attack helicopters Mi-28НЭ (from 42 purchased). Writes about it "Lenta.ru"reported the Algerian edition of "SecretDifa3".

The helicopters were delivered on May 26 to the base of the Air Force of the African Republic by military transport aircraft An-124.

Algeria was the second foreign customer of these helicopters. Lenta reminds that in 2012, fifteen Mi-28HE cars were bought by Iraq.

    All this is good, but when you once again hear from the authorities about another "brotherly people", you involuntarily want to ask: "And what are we to you?" All these rapprochements should be built solely on the basis of benefits for Russia, and long-term, not momentary ones.

      Moreover, long-term, not momentary.

      And why are you not perceiving the building of a multipolar world as a long-term benefit ?? The state not only does not allow infection, it also supports its neighbors. It’s worthy in itself, and indeed we are doing the same, but we have more resources for stabilization. Moreover, maintaining adequate leadership is beneficial to overall stability. We don’t need chaos, we don’t sit overseas.

        Algeria is firstly a self-sufficient oil country and pays money

        Secondly, Algeria has long been purchasing Russian weapons - and the purchase of weapons, as we all know, is the main indicator of geopolitical priorities. They don’t buy weapons from enemies, so that at the right time they don’t embargo on spare parts, maintenance, repair, etc. - or even bugs

        Algeria is clearly not one of the pro-Western countries - despite its historical proximity to France - and is clearly gravitating toward an anti-NATO future bloc - he would buy Chinese too — Algeria is just rich and can afford the best - Russian

    Nevertheless, France remains a priority country for Algeria as a former metropolis and a desirable destination for immigration, since there are plenty of people who have come to France in the 70-80s, entire regions and even cities are inhabited exclusively by immigrants from northern Africa.
    And in terms of weapons, everything is simple: business, nothing personal. French and American weapons are much more expensive, and Algeria, although not the poorest country, but not the richest. Plus surviving communications from Soviet times.

    Here is an example of a good opportunity for Russia to become a country a defender for many states against US aggression. As the United States collects money for NATO, so Russia can offer many countries protection in exchange for material investments.

      But can you imagine how this news "delighted" the French, for whom the countries of North Africa have always been buyers of weapons, incl. and helicopters. The fact that Algeria decided to purchase Russian equipment - aircraft, tanks and helicopters is just not surprising - Soviet / Russian weapons and equipment have been used in this country for a long time (if we talk about helicopters, these are Mi-8 / Mi-17, Mi-6 , Mi-24 and even the ancient Mi-4, which consisted and are in service with the army of Algeria) and therefore are well aware of all their advantages and disadvantages.
      Of course, on the basis of only deals on the supply of arms to this North African country, conclude that:
      Algeria’s growing thirst for the “Russian bloc” is, according to the analyst, another sign that Washington is losing influence all over the world. The position taken by the United States and NATO is becoming increasingly untenable.

      - at least prematurely. Let's see which of these deals will be the result.
      I have the honor.

    Algeria is a self-sufficient country. If the United States and the EU do not decide to destroy it, as was the case with Libya, it will flourish. In Algeria 143 airdrome. The fleet of our combat aircraft is, as I recall, of the order of 183 units. The rest of the planes are French. For the Russian Federation, Algeria is a potential buyer of our equipment, not just the defense industry. As for the defense industry complex, through my enterprise’s line, it is urgent to prepare and conclude contracts for the supply of: radymakov RSBN, instrument landing systems, TMK for the preparation of LUP and OBU. I have the honor.
