Lithuanian Foreign Ministry: the decision to deploy Iskander near Kaliningrad was made a long time ago, and this step is not the answer of Moscow to NATO

The head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry, Linas Linkevicius, commenting on the words of the Russian ambassador in Vilnius, said that the possible deployment of Iskander complexes in the Kaliningrad region “has nothing to do with retaliatory actions,” reports RIA News.


Lithuanian Foreign Ministry: the decision to deploy Iskander near Kaliningrad was made a long time ago, and this step is not the answer of Moscow to NATO


Earlier, Russian Ambassador Alexander Udaltsov said in an interview with the media that "the possible deployment of Iskanders in the Kaliningrad region will be a serious response to the actions of the United States and NATO in Europe."

Linkyavichyus:
“First of all, this step has nothing to do with retaliatory actions, since the anti-missile systems are absolutely not directed at that, and this has been explained more than once. And the reasons for the deployment of weapons by Russia never had to look. These decisions were made earlier, even a couple of years ago, and this is only a “pretext” - these propaganda actions are used for their own purposes and may justify certain actions or measures. ”


“Russia's military activity near the Baltic countries, the amount of exercises and the number of military do not even compare with what is happening in our territories,” the foreign minister said.

“The capacities that our country possesses, and even the additional capacities that we are talking about now - the battalion units stationed in each Baltic country, will not exactly change the strategic balance so as to require a response. Without looking at propaganda conversations, we must calmly and responsibly do what we have pledged - to guarantee the security of our countries, ”Linkyavichus concluded.

          Then, when the Russian Federation occupies them again, then the fear of a hundred will disappear for these lands, you have to pay, since they belong to Russia, naturally without the Balts. And Persons Without Citizenship are the real owners of the lands of Ingermanland. When the Russian Federation begins to restore the industry and pay them money for nothing that. It's called "Transit". But alas, the train left, it's time to return what they occupy illegally. So they yelp, and it's time to send them on an erotic journey. To look for the "Promised" land, but not Israel. Because for bullying their Jews they will quickly deduce there. This is not to ask where? http: //abcdefgh.livejournal.com/814636.html

            Already! They do not climb out of Moscow, they ask to restore the transit of goods from Russia. As soon as the Russian Federation stops that small transit of goods through the ports of the Baltic States and gas goes to Germany via the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, the Balts will have only Belarus, this is a penny. Balts can already sell rails.

    Interesting? From whom does the threat to these sandy farms and manors come?. All the valuable balts have long since passed to the EU, at the price of scrap metal. And we don’t even need the Euro values ​​as liberals and the LGBT community under a rainbow flag.

      The fact of the matter is that nobody needs them in FIG, and Europe as well. If the anti-Russian hysteria ends, then everyone will safely forget about this ass of Europe and not see them any more loans and any freebies - they will quietly go out in their hole.

        It may end sooner. Reforms have already been announced in the EU and it seems that all these mongrels will be left without money. Trump in Scotland confirmed that everyone who needs US patronage must pay, the US is not a cash cow.

            Yes, Trump is not the president, but it is precisely because in his speeches that Europeans must pay for their US security, they support him. I agree that they may not let him into the White House.
            Reforms in the EU are coming very soon. But not for us. But there will be little doubt that the new REICH will appear. I don’t know how the relations between the EU and the Russian Federation will develop. But the fact that while Merkel and Hollande are in power, do not go to the grandmother, there will be sanctions. But the fact that the poor mongrels will get what they earned, they have already been warned. And yapping in the Russian Federation will not count, real money will go into the count, which they will carry to the general cashier of the EU, but there’s nothing to carry. Great Britain, with its exit from the EU, greatly reduced the budget revenues. Therefore, Turkey was given a turn from the gate, and Ukraine. The signals are that Turkey and Ukraine have been made clear that no parasites are needed in the EU. But until the showdown with Britain ends, it is very difficult to understand the actions of the EU. There is a division of property.

    First of all, this step has nothing to do with retaliatory actions, since anti-ballistic systems are aimed absolutely not at that

    In 2018, they plan to put rockets with an interception range of up to 1500 kilometers, does NATO really want to protect the European part of Russia from Iran and North Korea? Or maybe all the same missile defense against Russia deployed.

    Meanwhile, behind a puddle of our neighbors, such events, ex-UN Secretary General John Ash, ordered to live long. "The New York Post reports that after Ash was found dead on Wednesday, the UN said he died of a heart attack. Local police later contested the allegations, saying instead that he died from a" training accident who crushed his throat. ”Adding to the mysterious nature of Ash's death was the fact that he was summoned to court Monday (today) to testify against Hillary Clinton in a corruption case.

    Before this incident, Vince Foster "died unexpectedly".

    Foster was a partner at the Clinton law firm and knew the inner workings of the Clinton family business. "

    Lithuanians did not go far from Ukrainians. Those two years have been fighting with Russian divisions and special forces tirelessly, and the Lithuanians cannot wait for the code to attack them. Now, if they had attacked, then the whole world would see the veracity of their words and the insidious essence of Russia. They just don’t understand that then no one will give money - there will be nobody to give. The smaller the country on the borders with Russia, the more stench and show-offs.

    There was a profitable transit. Now, it has become even more profitable. 2% of GDP minus, but in NATO! who would give them a head, not a battalion. Indeed, in the case of a grandiose schukher, they will pay for the evacuation of these battalions at their own expense.

    There has been no war in Europe for too long. For 60 years no one has been cutting neighbors or squeezing territories. Empires did not collapse in blood and fires. And this is the merit of the EU as well. But apparently, people selected for centuries and accustomed to wars and robberies, got bored.
    That's interesting, Europe is actually the tropics, palms are growing in London. But the peoples are incredibly cruel, conquering other countries exterminated millions of people. There were empires in the tropics, but there was no such cruelty. There are no conquests and wars, but there are no massacres of dissenting whole nations. Is there a logical explanation for this?

      Something I did not hear that someone was making excuses, but tantrums from scratch as much as desired.

    I remember, I don’t remember ... a bald Alzheimer!
    The decision to deploy Iskanders was made in response to the deployment of missile defense systems in Poland and Romania. Maybe they have already withdrawn from NATO and the missile defense system does not belong to the states?

    For too long, the United States has parasitized at the expense of the rest of the world, has grown stronger, is not easy to knock it down. But we do not look for easy ways, as they say, and we will finish it anyway, and only then we will find out that the whole world is our brothers and friends. time, they will answer for everything. We will not divide Americans, we will not divide into moderate and immoderate, they will receive everything.

    Messrs. Chukhontsy, you shouldn't worry. "Iskander" is only for white people, they have a range of up to 500 km. And for you and multiple launch rocket systems will be enough to get from the border to the seashore. Nobody will spend much on you. Neither we nor NATO.

    Each side silently does its job, that's all. Nothing can prohibit us from deploying forces within the borders and even outside in the union territories (Belarus). Let the NATO members call these areas whatever you like, we also have numbered potential targets and deployment areas for NATO and US missile defense forces. Everything else is linguistic for political and informational propaganda purposes, or to get gesheft in the form of conditionally free weapons or budgets. Fems or provinces continue to rip off, because every year it is harder and harder to do this, you have to suck out more and more "threats" from your fingertips. Modern "patricians" of these provinces - all have long had warm holes after "service" and leave, but the people are like that, "little people", "tax mass".

    Lithuania's policy is similar to schizophrenia ... When Russia and China conducted exercises in the Baltic Sea with the participation of ships, it hit them like piss in the head! And this masquerade began, and the childish babble about the "power" of Lithuania ... I don't know exactly what Latvia and Estonia have, but Lithuania definitely has something wrong with its head ... At least this one .. Well, which so nasty ... (President of their country)

    I don’t understand. And why then loud talk about the Russian threat?

    It is necessary to read between the lines, this is precisely the conversation about the "Russian threat". Like "we didn’t want anything at all, but these vicious Russians have long planned to capture us."

    Minus.
    Right there, we are only looking for familiar letters, so where between the lines ??! wassat
