NATO decided to deploy four battalions in the Baltic region

51
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the North Atlantic Alliance decided to deploy four battalions in the Baltic States and Poland on a rotational basis. The decision, as reported, was made in the framework of the program "to strengthen the eastern borders of NATO." RIA News gives a fragment of Stoltenberg’s statement:
We decided to strengthen the forward presence. NATO will deploy on a rotational basis four multinational battalions in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. I welcome the commitment of many allies to participate in them.



Earlier, Stoltenberg declared that the basis of the formed battalions would be the military personnel of the “leading NATO states”. It can be assumed that we are talking primarily about the United States, Britain and Germany.

The US military command confirms the information that the US military will enter the "Baltic battalions", and add that each battalion will consist of at least 800 people.

NATO decided to deploy four battalions in the Baltic region


With great enthusiasm, the NATO top officials commented on the decision in the Baltic countries. So, the Minister of Defense of Lithuania Juozas Olekas called this decision “historical».

Olekas:
I am pleased with this historic decision. The units in the battalion format deployed in Lithuania will be ready to respond immediately to external aggression, and will effectively join the defense of our country. We hope that this decision will be confirmed at the summit of the heads of NATO in Warsaw, which we regard as a pass to the greater NATO presence in the Baltic region.


The Russian Foreign Ministry announced that Russia would be forced to take retaliatory measures against the militarization of the North Atlantic Alliance of the Baltic region in connection with security threats against the Russian Federation.

Interfax quotes the head of the department of pan-European cooperation of the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrei Kelin:
This (the actions of the military bloc) goes against the spirit and the letter of the fundamental act of the Russian Federation-NATO

    "We've decided to place a forward presence ..." Forward of whom? Iran or North Korea? And after that NATO claims that it is not deploying against Russia.

      And after that, NATO claims that it is not turning against Russia.

      This rhetoric is no longer used. NATO clearly states that these battalions are placed precisely against possible Russian aggression. True, I have always believed that this is not a defensive measure, but an offensive one. You can add here some kind of NATO international brigade, which will be located in Romania .
      P.S. That’s where to carry out large-scale maneuvers --- in Belarus and Kaliningrad, but this year there will be a big Caucasus2016, also an important direction.

To snatch a piece, like a pack of hungry wolves! And we are the citizens of RUSSIA and our president VLADIMIR VLADIMIROVICH does not want to give our RUSSIA to anyone else! They (NATO and others) apparently decide the question of the power capture of RUSSIA ?! belay We have how and how to respond to such attacks of squashes and other rubbish. am

            If 150 men stand under a gun, it is possible, defending themselves, to accidentally capture Poland. laughing Although what the hell do we need these gardeners with unhealthy ambition?

        By the way, about the 22 of July.
        On June 22 in 04.00 Moscow time, on the Day of Remembrance and Sorrow, the voice of Yuri Levitan will announce the beginning of the war as part of the “Memory Watch” campaign in the Alexander Garden. Then 3 thousand participants march from Bolotnaya Square to the Kremlin, lay flowers at the Eternal Flame and honor the memory of those killed in World War II with a moment of silence.

        Read on: http://izvestia.ru/news/617956#ixzz4BcYlQrii


        Threat. My opinion: in 4 in the morning it is not necessary to announce the beginning of the war in a voice. Procession, flowers, reverence - yes, but not an announcement. The date is gloomy, many may not understand.
        They would not have attacked anything, and so the situation is not so hot.

      everything is already involved. They started building a wall on the border, treating ukrovoyak at our expense, for canceling visas for Ukrainians with two legs. The Javans bought a landfill 2 km from the Russian border. American tanks regularly approach Narova.
      The truth is now given to almost all disabled people to go out to work or die of hunger. Any number of NATO troops, at the expense of the host country.

          yes, now people with disabilities, if not 100% incapacity for work, must look for a job. In case of refusal to seek a job or not wanting to cooperate with the unemployment fund, a disabled person may be deregistered. Automatically, a person loses his pension and health insurance. At the same time, pensions and working conditions in the Chukhon region are an order of magnitude worse than in old Europe. Unemployment in the Northeast, the Russian region of Estonia, 14% official, about 30% real.

    In Riga, Latvia, criminal proceedings have been instituted against two British soldiers who danced on the roof of a taxi. These are half-humans "resting" during the exercises. And what will happen if they are here on a permanent basis ?!
    It is clear that the deployment of 800 tons of carcasses will not play a big role in protecting these outskirts of the capitalist paradise (which is not paradise at all). And most likely not for that they are introduced. After all, biomass thought that the happiness of well-being would come from the moment of entry into the EU. But no, the last is taken! So they deploy a contingent ready to pacify the dissatisfied. In my opinion, the Russian threat was also invented because of the impoverishment of the population and the growing discontent and disappointment of the natives.

          Ours are not fools, they are doing the right thing, building up defense weapons. Moreover, in their territory. The Western media can scream about Russian aggression as much as they like, but as long as our troops on our territory and strategic weapons are aimed at potential enemies, we can be relatively calm.
          Now it is not 1941, and she can see a special rallying in the ranks of NATO. The US itself will not climb, but will incite Poland and the Balts. And then the entire EU, such as stand up for the poor offended, who survived the "occupation" of the USSR. Only now, without the United States, all these warriors will take the first number pretty quickly. Judging by the statements of our General Staff, NATO is sitting in their livers and will not stand on ceremony.

Therefore, on June 22, no one waits in silence, and decisions and measures are being taken in a planned manner. By the way, a sudden check of the combat readiness of the RF Armed Forces, checking arsenals, deploying parts to the wartime staff at the base, storage of weapons and equipment, with the partial involvement of reservists .It is clear that everything is selective, but still the verification period is up to June 22nd.

    From the simplest placement of additional RZSO systems in the Pskov and Leningrad regions. Practice defeat targets at long distances. The existing RZSO 90-100 km. it will not be enough. And with an increased range is not yet expected, but it would be very helpful.
