Will we continue to sit on a log, or is it time to jump already? To NATO exercises in the Baltic

112
Once upon a time my teacher told me an old parable. On a log there were three frogs. And then one of them decided to jump into the water. How many frogs are left on the log?




Alas, but the majority answer will be wrong. The number of frogs on the log does not change. The one that decided to jump, did not take any action for this. The solution remained a solution.

Very often we make our decisions for action. It seems to us that we have already jumped. But in fact, we continue to sit on the log. And this problem is not only Russia. It seems to me that this is exactly what happened in Ukraine. Ukrainians also took their decision for action. From here and general disappointment maidan. Hence the collapse of the country. Hence the gap of the people apart.

Unlike us, NATO is "jumping." Does not decide to jump, but just jumps. Without looking at our reaction, without thinking about the consequences. They considered that they needed it, and did.

Today, June 6, in Poland, the most large-scale exercises that have ever been in Poland begin. And they are called quite menacingly - Anaconda. The practical part of the exercise begins on June 7.

According to ITAR-TASS: “According to the Ministry of Defense of Poland, a record number of states and soldiers will take part in Anakonda-16. 31 thousand soldiers from 24 countries, including 12 thousand from Poland, 10 thousand from The United States, about a thousand from Great Britain, 3 thousand units of military equipment, including Tanks and armored personnel carriers, more than a hundred aircraft and helicopters, as well as 12 ships. Maneuvers will take place at all Polish training grounds. "

Agree, really impressive. But every exercise has a goal. And it is precisely the goals of the exercises that interest us most. Experts will understand perfectly what and for what will be worked out.

“The purpose of the exercises is to strengthen the interaction of national and coalition commands and subdivisions within the framework of a united defensive operation in the conditions of the emergence of mixed threats,” the republic’s Defense Ministry reported.

"The Anakonda-16 scenario makes it possible to test the readiness of its participants to respond to the full range of threats identified in current conflicts, including responding to hybrid threats," the agency notes. In particular, the units will have to accomplish the tasks of tactical integration of commands and troops, fire control, medical evacuation, elimination of the consequences of using weapons mass destruction, the movement of troops over long distances. "

That is what we will see in the language of the military is called "combat coordination". National units and units will learn to fight together. And given the venue, a logical question arises - against whom? The answer is obvious.

NATO will hold not only the "Anaconda". In parallel, we will see other interesting teachings. "Sword strike" - the rapid movement of NATO combat units from the territory of Germany to Romania, Bulgaria, and the Baltic states. And we are no longer talking only about personnel. We are talking about the transfer of heavy armored vehicles and weapons.

The "quick response" is the rapid transfer of US troops from the United States to Poland, followed by the development of hostilities in the territory of this country and other countries in the region.

"Baltops" - landing of the sea landing on the Polish coast. With the participation of all the forces and means of the NATO Navy and aviation.

Of course, "Anaconda" - the traditional teachings. Today is the sixth in a row. But. It is too obvious that the direction of these exercises is not so much defensive as offensive. Agree, the transfer of large units to the borders of another state, the navy, the fleet off the coast of the likely enemy, and other "charms" speak eloquently enough about the mood in the NATO headquarters.

Naturally, to calm Russia, and most importantly, its own citizens, NATO generals make "peaceful" statements.

"These exercises are defensive in nature and should be a response to the threats of the modern world, to show how ready we are to interact with our allies and partners," says Republican Deputy Minister of Defense Bartlomie Grabsky.

I think that today many articles will be published on "military hysteria in the Russian media." Teachings need information support. Moreover, examples will be given of the "inadequate reaction of Russia" to the teachings. But the question is: what reaction is adequate in this case? Express "concern" or "deep regret" about?

It's time to learn from the Americans their pragmatic approach. With whom you will lead ... It's time to act and only so that it solves Russian problems. Our interests should be above all for us. Probably, it is time to abandon the manner of "taking into account the interests of the states of the region."

Well, if you have already started with a parable, then you will end with a parable. A sage was sitting near the city. And a passing traveler asked him about what kind of people live in this city. And in the city from which you are coming, what kind of people were there? The bad! Aggressive, evil ... Well, here you will meet the same. And after some time, another traveler asked the sage the same question. And in response, I heard that good-natured, happy people lived in another city. From which it was hard to leave. “Here they are the same,” the sage replied.

A beggar beside him chided a sage. Why do you answer different people differently? And in response, he heard: “Everyone carries his own world in his heart! The one who has not found anything good in those regions where he came from will not find anything here. On the contrary, he who had friends in another city will find friends here. ”

Today, those that came to our borders resemble the first traveler. Hence, they must meet exactly the same people as they are. Maybe it will help to become like the second? In our "city" everyone will get what they want.

    And the article is intelligible and the parable of the noble. decisions and actions are hasty and not right, more than once in the history of states, but are right, righteous, and deliberate.

      It is not clear what the author suggests and where to jump. Poland and so under the gun, as well as promising areas based missile defense. "Today those who have come to our borders resemble the first traveler. This means that they should meet exactly the same people as they are." What does it mean? To lower the iron curtain or to stand on the border with evil people? Simply, if you write such an article and ask yourself a question, then it is advisable to offer something. Otherwise, all this is an empty chatter

            You just need to see the difference between for example Tatars and for example - Mishars, Tipters, Kerashens, Yurts Tatars, Nugais, Karagash, Tobolliks, Turals, I almost forgot Kryashenov.

                Friendship of Peoples. Recently I went to Bolgar for the 1000th anniversary of the adoption of Islam. Cool. There were plenty of Russians and Muslims. And on Easter, our Tatars rub their hands and say: "Here, we'll eat Easter !!!!" And some even go to the church and the mosque. So if Basarev has something to tell you, then go into the closet and speak there so that you won't be ashamed of the titular nation.

          Yes, you, my friend, a Nazi ... Your grandfather for whom it was interesting to fight in the Second World War and what would he tell you, if he knew that his granddaughter weaves 70 years after the victory over Nazism ... If I am not mistaken, more than 200 nationalities live in Russia and nationalities. I’m wondering how people like you (with a sense of unhealthy nationalism) want to build the Russian world only for Russians? How are you going to live without us? Purely fenced off from all in the territories adjacent to Moscow? How will you live without the Trans-Urals, Primorye, Siberia, the Caucasus?
          Or are you intentionally trying to sow the seeds of discord in our multinational country? So you are an enemy. The enemy of the people (and do not frown upon hearing this expression - things must be called by their proper names). And the attitude towards you should be appropriate - uranium mines cry for you ...
          Where are our special services looking? Do not they monitor the Internet? Such "citizens" should be identified and punished harshly and demonstratively. Russia's worst enemy is its internal enemy. And the most fertile soil for destabilizing the internal situation is interethnic relations.

        In half the case it happens. Saying that we have problems is easy, but to propose real solutions to them is quite another. In principle, the fact that people raise such questions is by no means bad, but as the classic said:
        The thing is sauce, how to serve.
        You can write an article in the spirit of a calm statement of any facts, in this case, the teachings of the "partners", and offer to discuss this, or you can start whining in the spirit:
        Chef, everything is gone - the plaster is removed, the client leaves.
        In my opinion, the article is closer to the second option.

The United States is launching these teachings in order to preserve the face of the face, for trust is falling, it is necessary to restore, for trust for the United States is a real golden synecure. What good will they think that they are not the very best, and stop trusting, and then the dollar and loans and God still knows what, and then look at the moon and they did not fly .... terrible things!

        If I understood correctly, the author had in mind that the Russian Federation should not perceive symmetrically for any even minimal action directed against the Russian Federation. Conducted exercises near the Russian Federation? Based on our political, economic, commercial and other opportunities to put pressure on NATO members, constantly (!!!!) express both indignation and concern .. constantly! Send protest notes, fill up complaints through all channels. Like a mosquito over your ear. Until you talk about a problem, they don’t perceive it. Needless to say, the language should be scuffed in parallel with concrete actions. Otherwise there will be no sense.
        Take these dead Balts: they constantly demand trillions of tons of money for the Soviet occupation and for another 100500 reasons. No one among these idiots even hopes to get a cent from this amount, but a background is created that shows the "vegetables" of Europe (the population) who is the victim and who is the aggressor and the enemy.

      Wisdom is good when there is agreement. For ten years, we have been led by the wise and far-sighted. With how far-sightedness has been shown during this time! Very much. The only time is Crimea, but otherwise there are failures where there are no obvious. I listened to the head of our Ministry of Foreign Affairs Mr. Lavrov on NATO exercises in Finland .. Listen carefully very instructively. The right thing says but how. We will take measures Silence. The feeling that we are constantly making excuses. It seems that this is just an on-duty statement by our Foreign Ministry. We have learned how to clearly defend our interests, namely, the country. Today it was announced that Kiev was going to buy gas but only at a discount. Guess our decision. It is difficult to rule a country where the elite is not united. Solutions are often half-hearted. There is the only solution where there is a clear understanding of the most serious task. I am talking about Syria. Truce knock out the chair from under the friends of the opposition. But this is probably a difficult task. To show the double-facedness of our colleagues. You think they don’t know this. That’s why they know how to pour dirt on us. That the Yankees refused to overthrow Assad. Of course not. They made bloody porridge .. Probably have to use aviation again and bring the shaitans to life ..

      Very true thought. Thanks to the Kudrins, we integrated and became painfully dependent on our enemies. They do whatever they wish, and we have to wipe ourselves off for good deeds. This is a systemic problem that requires a change of elite to true patriots, not Edrosov. Only this will be able to balance the entire domestic and foreign policy of the state, finance, defense and all-all-all. As always, the snickering careerist scammers who are firmly settled in warm places are to blame.

    As for the interests of Russia, I completely agree: there simply are no more countries left whose interests we have not touched to one degree or another. And in most cases - only virtually, in their inflamed imagination. But regarding the analogy with the teachings of NATO countries and adherents, I would like to note the following: they are undergoing combat coordination, and we simply have no one to do with this. Again, in our allies, only the army and navy (in the broad sense). There is no one to rely on, only on oneself.

      It is for the better, there is no one to get along with - less contradictions. "Before we unite, we must decisively delimit ourselves ..." And we do not need to delimit ourselves ... But I have great doubts about NATO's unity ... in the event of a real conflict.

      A bear, so the second millennium stretches, always wounded. There was still no time in our history when everything was fine with us.
      But there were attempts to sit out and "lick the wounds". And the last one is just about 71 years old. I can't sit out. The enemy creeps up to the den. Then he gets it. But what does it cost the bear? Maybe it's time to walk near the enemy mink?

Our people came to the rescue because we rallied in a moment of danger, and neither countries, together, nor separately, could wage a war of attrition with us.

    The fleet in the Baltic was practically not updated, and NATO aviation can also create a significant advantage. The Kaliningrad region deeply penetrates into the enemy’s position and its communications in case of war are difficult and not reliable.
    My question is: in the event of the beginning of active hostilities, will our forces occupy a dead defense or will our tactics in the event of a full-scale war be tightly linked to delivering nuclear strikes deep into Europe?
    Such a scenario seems unrealistic in view of the possibility of an escalation of the conflict, up to the exchange of ballistic missile strikes. However, NATO is building up conventional weapons in the region and we are trying to modernize our non-nuclear forces. How can events unfold if, for example, the flagship of the US Sixth Fleet, a command ship “Mount Whitney” will break in half from a strong explosion under the bottom and quickly sink to the bottom along with the command staff of these same exercises?

      I welcome Aleksey. And can there be a big war with a nuclear power without the use of nuclear weapons? Those factors that are really mentioned and are taken into account by our General Staff. The Kaliningrad region will be about the same as Crimea is becoming in the World Cup. Only in the Baltic.
      The Russia-NATO confrontation in conventional weapons is death to us today. We win in the class of armaments, but in terms of quantity it is far behind. Therefore, they twitch. They want to get what they think before the rearmament of our armed forces.

        Greetings to Alexander. It’s always been a mystery to me where the line is, beyond which you can begin to use nuclear weapons.
        Now, if NATO, for example, deploys a large number of strike systems and, by all indications, begins to put this "machine" on high alert, then they need to issue a warning through diplomacy and conduct a military demonstration of our capabilities.
        But if they do not reduce readiness, and according to intelligence they are waiting for a conditional code signal ("corsair777" for example), is it already possible to detonate a nuclear warhead somewhere in the uninhabited region of the North Atlantic or is it too early to do it?
        Or another case: the Polish battalion conducts exercises near our border, and then crosses it with battle and takes up defense on our territory. Well, I see ... the battalion can be destroyed or knocked back by joining the combined arms battle with it, but what to do in this a moment with suitable reserves? In addition, does this battalion support artillery from the depths and air supremacy must be ensured. Do you want to continue the destruction of the aggressor by conventional means or is it already the time when they call from Moscow and it's time to print the bag from the safe?
        Maybe I gave some rude examples, but I want to know where is the "red thread" after which the aggressor must curtail the operation and play the war back, or the aggressor does not stop and he will need to stop nuclear weapons.
        After all, this is a political decision in the competence of our senior leadership, the Supreme Command and the confidants. And since the decision is non-standard and colossal in its consequences, with an incredible share of responsibility, I would like to know "how is all this going to be resolved." The military charter does not say about this and is not publicly discussed anywhere, but I'm interested to know.
        Already, it hurts gray from clouds to be at our borders ...

        Or maybe a big war with a nuclear power without the use of nuclear weapons?
        Nowadays they go. In different versions and types, but the meaning is the same. Strong (USA) finds a bully (without nuclear weapons) and pushes into a direct armed conflict towards his opponent (with nuclear weapons). Naturally against the so-called Nuclear warfare is not used, but everything passes through the hulk as through a large pipe: testing new types of weapons, developing tactics, injecting new ideology, etc. etc.
        With one injection of poison, you can dump an elephant.
        In general, the fact that they work out combat coordination and interaction during the exercises is bad for us. The fact that they spend large amounts of money on it and not the fact that they will be worked out is good. We now need a balance and replenishment and increase in our own forces, and this depends on the leadership of the country.

        use nuclear weapons in response to use against them and
        (or) its allies nuclear and other types of weapons of mass
        defeat, as well as in case of aggression against the Russian
        Conventions with conventional weapons when at risk
        posed the very existence of the state.
        The decision on the use of nuclear weapons is made
        President of the Russian Federation.

        Purely hypothetically, after all, a battalion of Poles can "endanger the very existence of the state"? fellow Well, we have such a "fearful" President. repeat lol

      "... communications are difficult and unreliable ..."
      I think the "partners" thought about it. 31 thousand in Poland is quite enough for an attack on the Kaliningrad region, and the contingent in the Baltics is enough to repel the troops breaking through the corridor in the KO. This, apparently, was the recent film about a command and control unit with a nuclear strike.
      As for communications, the only free way is by sea. But we must bear in mind that the ports in the Gulf of Finland freeze in winter, and transports are a standard target.

    Interestingly, when will our warriors come up with the idea to raise their backs from the warm Moscow and St. Petersburg apartments and move the headquarters of the command deeper than 300-400 km? Or will we rely on the world's best air defense? So, with a massive missile and bomb strike, it will not be a lot, but will there be at least some time to make decisions? The same "Porter" in the Black Sea can carry (if you throw out IJIS, and they have already done it 100%) 56 "Tomahawks", and what they can all have seen in Iraq and Yugoslavia. One thing is good that NATO members are planning their strikes according to old patterns: Center (Poland), South (Romania, Bulgaria), North (Finland, and now also the Baltic countries), but the joy that we know should not turn into euphoria ...

    The feeling that the article is simply inflammatory. Like a bunch in a dark room. No suggestions, no options expressed. So - get a little bored, sort of like people relaxed.

    I remember there were exercises in NATA and on a larger scale - the "Reforger" was called. Transfer from the United States by air from several tank divisions, acceptance of equipment from warehouses in Germany and forward to training grounds.

      The main thing is that the Able Archer 83 does not happen again.

    The author, besides "jumping" somewhere, offers nothing. More precisely, he suggests hysteria. And the Russian troops should not be hysterical. They are not some kind of mongrel. And they are well aware that they are capable of taking flight such maneuvers and movements as - "saber strike" in real conditions. And to look from the outside what the "partners" are capable of in the exercises is useful and draw conclusions.

    The parable about the frogs by Boris Krumer is good, but I will continue to finish it .... "Never confuse action with making a decision. Sometimes it seems to you that you have already jumped, but in reality you are still sitting on a log. Moreover, surrounded by the same , like you, amphibians ".... and let's also remember the anecdote about two bulls, young and old ..

    I will quote the rest and remember so here ...

    Two bulls - young and old - graze on top of a hill. At the foot
    hill - a herd of cows. The young goby joyfully jumps around the old,
    looks at the cows and asks:
    - Uncle bull, uncle bull, let's quickly run down and ..... Then everyone knows ... my opinion will be more correct

    What are the suggestions for jumping to nowhere? Stand ready. There is no other option. I recall shots from some film about English archers: we execute the command "Hold", "Hold". Well, we will execute "Luuz" in one gulp, if the time comes.

    The article is muddy, it is not clear what the author wants? What would he be taken to the TA-57 kitchen and hourly reported on what is being done and in what directions?

    At the beginning of the Crimean epic, the VKS exercises (then the Air Force were still) were already taking place, when almost 20 personnel, the latest military equipment and, most importantly, 000 aircraft were suddenly transferred to the Kaliningrad region ... The planes did not land in a bare field, so the infrastructure was prepared and it was a test ... The planes flew away, although a couple of su-130 and su-34 squadrons remained ... The old ones flew away .... The personnel left, but the equipment remained all ... The old equipment is regularly taken to the large landing craft to the mainland, so as not to violate the agreement, according to which the demilitarization of the zone was carried out at one time ... Well, two Iskander-M brigades disappeared into the local forests ... You don't need more, the area is unfortunately small and is being shot at considerable depth barrel artillery caliber 30.

    They wrote correctly above - it’s not the time to jump out of the bushes with a wounded bear .... not the time while the bushes need to be equipped.

    In the region, it was decided to restore several previously reduced military units, intensive work is underway to bring the barracks fund and parks to an acceptable state. Soldiers have already appeared and are going to the bathhouse, from which people after the El Qing era are already weaned ... And the streets are not sweeping before the barracks as before ... We are not rushing things, all the same the balance of power is not equal.

    The Kaliningrad enclave is the launching pad of the Iskander ... Everything, the group located here will not be able to conduct long defensive actions, because it will be immediately cut into pieces (see map)

    All this not healthy garbage with fuss around the borders of Russia has a different direction - to knock money out of NATO countries on the imaginary Russian threat, and on orders that the US industry will fulfill. Since many countries that joined NATO have granted the United States external defense powers. And therefore, in recent years 20 they have been doing so well with their social status. For none of them spent money either on research and development, or on the creation and production of new types of weapons.

    That’s why you need a Bear to be scared of .... To get the new appropriations in the parliaments of NATO countries. There are not fools sitting there and understand.
    I communicate closely with the Lithuanians, there is generally hysteria for all SI ... True, they cannot answer the question - why should Russia capture these Baltic states?

    It's time to get ready ...
    1) Restore all wired telephone service in the country.
    2) Equip bomb shelters in each house / quarter.
    3) Introduce mandatory annual military training for the male and (optional) female population. Nursing courses for women.
    4) Prepare small arms for millions of potential recruits.
    5) Distribute components for weapons to all existing workshops, workshops, industries in the country. So that everyone knows what to start producing in case of "beginning". Etc. etc.
    Maybe I'm not in the know, and we have similar pre-mobilization events?

      In Russia, new warehouses for armaments, clothing and food are being built - and there is no money for everything else that you have proposed - only the troops of the Russian Chemical Forces will increase 10 times.

    Here is a strange impression. There is an article. The words are correct. Everything is fine, sort of ... But there remains a feeling of dissatisfaction - but what are we calling for? Jump to where? How? With whom? On whom? A sort of article in general and about nothing.

    Once upon a time, my teacher told me an old parable. Three frogs sat on a log. And then one of them decided to jump into the water. How many frogs are left on the log? Gracefully!
