London alarmed: "Russian military is watching us through the scopes of British rifles"


The head of the Defense Committee of the British House of Commons demanded an explanation in connection with the presence of Russian military sniper rifles made in Great Britain - according to him, this threatens British soldiers performing NATO missions in the Baltic region. The Independent writes about London's anxiety in this regard.


According to the head of the Committee, Tobias Ellwood, the rifles were produced by the Portsmouth firm Accuracy Interenational, and now they are in service with the Russians who are now "working in Eastern Europe."

These weapons are actually targeted at British soldiers who are also based to support the Baltic states and NATO operations.

Ellwood suggests.

Meanwhile, the supply of such weapons to Russia was banned after 2014 as part of the sanctions policy - in this regard, Tobias Ellwood demanded that the Department of International Trade conduct an appropriate investigation.

According to the general director of the trade department Amanda Brooks, in this case, we can talk about sniper weapons intended for sporting purposes or for use by licensed individuals, as well as weapons dealers until 2014. However, Ellwood rejected these and similar explanations, calling them excuses, since the mentioned rifles are not weapons of 30 years ago, but quite modern and have a clear military purpose.

    What kind of Russians work in Eastern Europe? those who decided that the dark-haired Khazars-Ukrainians are actually white, who are offended by Russian Jews? laughing and are fighting on the side of the APU? these will definitely not turn their weapons against their British masters. they are not tenants anymore. either their "white" Ukrainian brothers will finish them off as racially wrong, or life in Russia.

      ... these will definitely not turn their weapons against their British masters.

      These, of course, are not rotated. They actually sell these rifles in the LDNR. Well, and from there ...

            militias usually kill vendors on the spot. so it was with the sellers of the systems "grad", I think the same is waiting for snipers.

    ..this Ellwood, the same blatant fool and layman, like other "effective managers" around the world! wassat
    As very good and well-aimed sniper rifles, the future AW (Arctic Warfare), of the British company AI (the founder of the company and the developer of the prototype of this rifle, its advanced concept and design, is a former Olympic champion in bullet shooting, forgot his name, although it is "spinning" in my head now, and I am too lazy to look in Google - in the early 1990s, the details of the history and description of the design of this, then the newest, sniper rifle I first learned from the Russian edition of the magazine "Soldier of Fortune") under the designation L96A1 were adopted by the WB army in 1982 and since the mid modifications, for different cartridges and calibers, were mass-produced for the British troops and police (a shortened and lightweight version of the AWP, P-police), as well as for sale to the side (to Russia too!), including individuals!
    The AW rifles were expensive, of course, but they are worth it! good
    No wonder the British enemies of Russia are now biting their elbows with frustration!
    wink

    If I were choosing a sniper rifle for targeted single shooting in any conditions, I would prefer the AW family rifle, a variant with a non-folding stock, chambered for .388 Lapua Magnum! yes

        Problem

        ?? lol Clown xeno "flood", Sergei is the problem of the Site, not mine (without your comments and minuses, I get bored, because sometimes, from the trivial clownish "verbal diarrhea", a sense jumps into you (you are right, indeed, the AW rifle under .388 LM, with "optics" -these "scrap", overall and weighty, but "solid"! winked ) and the Spark of God, even, it happens, Plus wink , I remember, your Cuban comment came to me - you can be serious, not superficial, and write interestingly, from life experience whenever you want, although this happens very rarely)! request

          it is a great honor for the Ukrainian to put a minus laughing we will NEVER be on the same side of the barricades! roughly speaking like a tablecloth the road, but that on the threshold of my house none of you would see!

            Sergei T. What kind of nonsense are you talking about, as if it were directly broadcasting from Israel ... Ukrainians are different and it's time to distinguish between wheat and chaff ... And in the future, removing the Semites from the power of the Russian Federation and Ukraine with the same oligarchy. all misunderstandings will evaporate ...

              and those killed by the Sahaidachny, Khmelnitsky will rise again? your beloved Ukrainians themselves are half Semites (Khazars). It was necessary to go to school, and not to eat moonshine with bacon around the corner.

                Do not confuse history and modern realities, these are different subjects with their own circumstances. Ukrainians do not belong to the Semites, who launched such heresy ... That's more to the Turks as a cross between and other southern peoples, like our southerners, so yes ... Russia's enemies are deliberately spinning enmity between Russians and Ukrainians, and you, too, are playing this tune blow ...

    smile Well, as usual, they turned on the fool, is this your "psycho-armor" with "cognitive dissonance", when reality "breaks patterns" ?! wink
    We, the multinational population of the former Ukrainian SSR, are all Ukrainians only at the place of residence, and the real native language of most residents is Russian, which is also the language of interethnic communication in our country!
    Although, yes, zapadenskie galitsai-Banderlog and "svidomye" local farmers like you, Sergei, militant marginal xenophobes, fostering their small-town "inferiority complexes", "tear ukans" and are very angry because of our unkillable common Russian dialect and practical refusal to switch to "der.movu"! wassat
    "Ukrainian" nouveau riches-klepto "w / Bandera" at the "helm of the Maidan authorities" are adopting in their ZRada all sorts of anti-people anti-constitutional laws to ban our Russian language and any nazi small-town trash will scold Russian-speaking sellers, hairdressers, conductors, cashiers, ... just as they scold the drivers of minibuses, kindergarten teachers, teachers and teachers in low-decreed schools and spawned "vysykh" ...) , but they can’t do anything (yes, they themselves don’t know, they make fun of them and actually speak Russian)!
    At the factories of the South-East they speak Russian, there are, of course, local villagers who speak "surzhik", but they behave normally.
    Aggressively they "move" and hate us, Russians (as well as our common Russian Fatherland-Russia and its current President, the Banderlogists have piety and an indifferent attitude towards the Jews-Gorbachev and Yeltsin), basically only Westerners or their (who settled after the war in our places) descendants (well, also "Ukrainian" neophytes - "Svidomo" twisted newcomers, many still under the Soviet Union, Russians, even Russians by nationality, such as Pasha Klimchugunkin or this one, like him, is all this with the letter "P", former Russian artist-in military-patriotic films was still filmed, now a complete Banderonazi and a murderer, a punitive "hero of the ATO" fool ) but you can immediately hear those by the characteristic Galitsai, incomprehensible even to Ukrainians, barking "gvara", which now, together with the terrible Galitsai "beauties" - dictatorships, has flooded the Ukrainian TV channels! wassat

    Honestly and "to put it mildly", you, aka Sergey Tokarev, are not very pleasant to me, I do not want to visit you at all and I do not plan to visit you in the near future (because of the "quarantine coronabesia" that unfolded this year, I did not even visit my beloved Crimea, what is to you!), in my small homeland with the racist rabble of unresolved "questions" a lot, so you can roll your "little table" from the doorway! winked
    All the best to you, "barricade" you are our "skatershinnik", and DO NOT get sick, sincerely, from the heart! yes
