In the United States called Kaliningrad "occupied territory"

On February 29, 2020, an article by the little-known “expert analyst,” a retired US Army Colonel Wes Martin, appeared in the Washington Times. In his material, he tried to analyze the recent tour of the head of the US State Department Mike Pompeo in Eurasia (from January 31, 2020 to February 4, 2020 he visited Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan). Then he switched to amendments to the Constitution of Russia.

... it is important to understand why Russia accepts such constitutional amendments that complicate the procedure for transferring territories to other states. Obviously, Russia is trying to consolidate its claims to occupied or disputed territories. Such territories include Crimea, captured in 2014, the Kuril Islands occupied by Stalin in 1945, as well as the Kaliningrad region (formerly German East Prussia), where many residents seek closer integration with the European Union, and some areas bordering Estonia

- the author wrote.

For clarity, the Washington Times is a very conservative newspaper - the mouthpiece of US neoconservatives. In 1982, it was founded by the Korean Moon Song Myung (1920-2012), who was the leader and creator of the religious movement “Unification Church”. The late Moon Song Men owned the media conglomerate News World Communications and a huge number of different companies. The main goal of a religious organization is to build a harmonious and multicultural world. Now his second wife Khan Hakcha (Hakcha Khan Moon, b. 1943) is in charge of all this.

By the way, it must be recalled that this is not the first time that the United States has questioned the results of World War II. For example, in 2016, the former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, provocatively wrote on his Twitter account:

Koenigsberg has been a German city for many centuries. Does this mean that Germany has the right to annex Kaliningrad now?

At the same time, there is not a single official (acting) high-ranking American official who would have expressed something like that publicly. After all, everyone is well aware that Russia is a nuclear power, with all the ensuing consequences. It’s just that someone in the West wanted to highlight a little the “formidable and mighty” exercises of Defender Europe, which should be held in April 2020 in Poland and the Baltic States, and at the same time again beg money from the US Senate.

    The US state generally exists in the occupied territory. There is not a single piece of unoccupied. At least we have international treaties and agreements in Kaliningrad.
  2. Exactly, we beat off Koenigsberg, and then stupidly annexed! These are the rights of the winner! You don’t like it? Then let the French Alsace and Lorraine first return to the deutsche!

    But shaw is still heard about the German Danzig and Breslau? The colonel has nothing to say?
    1. And in fact - it's time to return! The Poles are NOT the winners, but the instigators of the world. War 2!

    In this case, both Alaska and Texas are the occupied territories and the US occupier.

    There is no smoke without fire. Apparently, BNE did not have time to do this at one time, otherwise the question would not have stood in any way.

    What I like is that the USA is far beyond a large puddle. If we had a common border with them, we would have fought for a long time. And so, well, he barks at himself from behind a puddle, and hey.

    Well, everyone can play these games. I consider California and Texas occupied territories. Let them set an example and return. Waiting for.
