NATO military provocations: Norwegians want to "teach a lesson" to Russia

The United States and the United Kingdom want to bother Russia more with their naval exercises in the Barents Sea, while Norway is in an ambiguous position, writes

These maneuvers directly endanger the Russian military installations in the High North, but the Norwegians abandoned traditional restraint in the name of allied NATO commitments and took part in the provocation.

Comments from Norwegian users:

Why not ... We have already lost one frigate due to incompetence ... Why not lose another due to senseless aggression ...

- writes Øystein Andersen.

Aggression? And nothing that the Russians themselves constantly stick out in our economic zone. Not to mention the fact that they are already on Norwegian territory (obviously, we are talking about Svalbard - approx. Per.). And in the territories of other countries, but this, of course, was never considered aggression among these communists. In Sweden, they drove a submarine onto the rocks, but this, allegedly, was not a sign of aggression. Just an accident ...

- Knut Jakobsen is indignant, recalling the case already in 1981, when the Soviet submarine S-363 ran aground off the Swedish coast.

In my opinion, this is not very reasonable on the part of Norway ... Why should we - given that over the past 10 years we have lost reliable protection on land - to stand up against the Russians at sea ... This will only worsen relations with our neighbor .. Yes, and in a purely military sense I see no point ...

- concludes Lars Erik Kvaale.

I see no reason to provoke Russia in the North, if, of course, the Russian Federation also observes border rules in those areas [...]

- reflects Arve Withbro.

Norway and NATO must sail much further to repay Russian aggression in the north and the rest of Europe appropriately. It should not be forgotten that Russia invaded and occupied parts of other countries. We must be vigilant, and ideally the United States should station its nuclear weapons and missiles on Norwegian soil. This will teach Putin a lesson [...]

- suggested by Andre Kristoffersen.

We must not forget that we also invaded some countries. So the number of attacks we have is probably a draw

- reminds the reader Arild Gjertsen.

It is important for Norway to keep tensions low in the North. All our security is based on this. And Russia is a great country with Western culture and an integral part of Europe

- Summons Helge Olav Erik Tollef Christophersen.

Just tell Putin and ask him to keep a safe distance from our border, or you think they have a monopoly on such violations

- steinar_wennberg replies to the previous comment.

Russia is anti-Western in itself. We must defend ourselves against Russia to survive as a Western state

- comments Håkon Helgesen.

The Russians regularly fly bombers along the Norwegian coastline while remaining in international waters. They provoke. They also had major naval exercises concurrently with NATO maneuvers in the north. The Russians operated near the Nordland county. […] It's time to repay them in kind. Russia's provocations against Sweden in the Baltic Sea are also well known. It's time for the US and UK to give them a reason to think hard

- Roger Hansen is indignant.

    And Dimon Medvedev and those who grovel in front of foreigners are to blame. These should be driven from the government of the Russian Federation and from the civil service with kicks. They gave Norway a part of the territory of the Russian Federation, which is criminal in itself, so Norway has now completely lost its shores and continues to become impudent more than ever. With this, give a finger, they will bite off their hand up to the neck ...

      And the State Duma can return these water areas that Medvedev gave back to Russia?

        Maybe if he wants to. For this, this friend of the Norwegian people will have to be sent to prison bunks, and all documents signed by him will be recognized as null and void and anti-people. A similar decision has long been made to take over the territories of Russia, which Gorbachev's Georgian girl Shevardnadze gave to the United States, suffering from Russophobia. Let these open their mouths in Georgia, in the Russian Federation, somehow without coming in large numbers of Russophobes, we will figure out how to live here and what to do. And the transfer of the RF lands by Medvedev to Azerbaijan cannot be called legal. Something all these figures, from Yeltsin to Putin, have not yet bothered to return to the Russian Federation all the lands of the Russian Federation remaining under Kazakhstan and Ukraine, more and more land of the Russian Federation is distributed to foreigners. Crimea does not count, they gave more territories of the Russian Federation to Norway alone than Crimea. And the Crimea to Ukraine was leaked by Alkashik Boriska Yeltsin

        For example, the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation on May 21.05.1992, 2809, Resolution No. 1-1954 recognized the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine in XNUMX as illegal and contrary to the Constitution of the RSFSR. By the way, the transfer of Russian territories to the United States, which was arranged by Gorbachev and Shevardnadze, is also contrary to the Constitution of the RSFSR and is not legal. According to the RF Constitution, which existed earlier, neither Medvedev nor Putin had the right to transfer the territory of the RF to Norway, China, or Azerbaijan ... The occupation of a number of other RF lands by Kazakhstan and Ukraine is also not legal.

            All your Ukraine on the map of 1654, within the borders of which you crawled into Russia from Poland, everything else, these are the territories of neighbors occupied by your Ukraine. The lands of the Ural Cossacks are not Kazakhstan, they are the temporarily occupied lands of Russia.
