NATO begins the transfer of military aircraft to the Ukrainian borders


Six multi-role fighters Eurofighter Typhoon of the British Air Force will be sent to Romania to contain "Russian aggression" against Ukraine and ensure security in the Black Sea, writes the British newspaper Daily Mail on April 13, 2021.


The British Ministry of Defense has confirmed the information that the transfer and deployment of the mentioned combat aircraft of the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the indicated country in the Balkans will take place this week. The department clarified that the fighters will be supported by the 85th wing of expeditionary logistics (logistics support). His place of permanent deployment is Wittering Air Force Base in Peterborough (Cambridgeshire in eastern England).

The British military insists that redeployment is routine. However, attention is drawn to the fact that NATO had previously expressed concern about the situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border, where "tens of thousands of Putin's soldiers" were found, marking the situation as "one step away from war."

The presence of British Typhoons in Romania is considered part of the Alliance's annual mission to protect the airspace of this country in the framework of Operation Biloxi (which has been going on for five years already). It is also expected to send up to 100 British infantry to Ukraine to participate in joint exercises with the Armed Forces of Ukraine this summer, summed up the media from the UK.

Note that over the past several years, NATO air police have been on duty at the airfield of the 57th Mihail Kogalniceanu airbase in Romania (Constanta county). Usually there are 4 aircraft of one of the Alliance countries, rotation occurs every four months. However, we do not know whether this particular object and this operation were meant in this case.

    I'll correct it a little. Not to contain, but to morally support Ukraine. lol

    According to Sergei Shoigu, the United States and NATO are moving troops from North America to the Russian borders. The main forces are concentrated in the Black Sea and Baltic region.

    In total, 40 thousand servicemen and 15 thousand units of weapons and military equipment, including strategic aviation, will be based near the territory of Russia. In this direction, Washington has doubled its aerial reconnaissance and XNUMX times its naval reconnaissance.

    As the Minister of Defense noted, Russia, responding to threats from NATO, deployed two armies and three airborne units to its western borders.

    According to him, the troops during the inspection showed full readiness and ability to fulfill tasks to ensure the country's military security. Currently, these associations and connections are involved in the exercise.

    The DPRK and PRC do not hesitate to respond with a threat to a threat, it is not clear why the Russian Federation is silent. It would be worth recalling a possible preemptive nuclear strike in view of the growing NATO threat to their bases and decision-making centers.

    These Naglo-Saxon "samoli" clearly aimed at "Romanization (Romanian occupation" under the guise of "NATO's planned" mess "in the Donbass), under the pretext of allegedly" temporary (in fact indefinite) protection by NATO troops "of Moldova (coupled with a serious" attempt to strangle "the garrison blocked from all sides of Transnistria!) and Bessarabia (it is possible that the Romanian occupation -" protection "of the entire Odessa region from the naval base in" Chornomorsk "-" de-Sovietized "Ilyichevsk), as well as covering air communications with the British naval base in Ochakov Nikolaevskaya area ?!
    IMHO

    Why are the US confident that the participation of their troops in a hypothetical conflict with the Russian Federation in Europe will not lead to a hypothetical strike by the Strategic Missile Forces on US territory?

      I'm not sure if they are sure. On a jump-start, probably because it will lead to a retaliatory strike by the US strategic forces on the territory of the Russian Federation.

    And what, personally, did they annoy you? Why such fierce hatred?
    If you wipe them off the face of the earth, then where to get Sherlock Holmes? How do you explain this to your children?
    Let them be. Don't you mind?
