How NATO intends to disarm Russia by staying with its


On April 22, at a briefing in Brussels, the representative of the EU's foreign policy service Peter Stano made a proposal to revive the bilateral dialogue between Russia and the European Union on disarmament and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. The European diplomat stressed that "the EU is working hard to support multilateral disarmament and non-proliferation processes."


In response to this statement, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee Alexander Sherin in an interview "Izvestia" noted that the Russian Federation can start considering the option of disarmament only after the West does it.

It is difficult to conduct an adequate dialogue and feel like an equal partner when NATO military bases are around you

- added the politician.

The issue of the presence of NATO nuclear weapons on the territory of European countries has been raised more than once in recent years. So, in mid-2020, the press published excerpts from the report of the Parliamentary Assembly of the North Atlantic Alliance, which indicated the exact locations of American nuclear warheads in Europe. As it turned out later, the classified information was published by NATO by mistake. Nevertheless, it was thanks to her that the general public became aware that NATO, and de facto American, missiles with nuclear warheads are deployed throughout the Old World. Of course, military experts from a number of countries have already talked about this for many years, but a full list of military bases on which they are located has become available for the first time.

Belgian Kleine-Brogel, German Büchel, Italian Aviano and Gedi-Torre, Dutch Volkel and Turkish Incirlik - if you look at the map of Europe, it becomes clear that American warheads are dispersed on its territory from one the goal is the threat to Russia. At the same time, it should be noted that all the talks about de-escalation, undertaken, among other things, by senior US officials, sometimes have a very weak relationship to reality.

The new American administration has made it clear that not only does it not plan to reduce, but, on the contrary, seeks to expand its military presence abroad. This is the only way to assess the fact that the decision announced by Donald Trump to withdraw almost 12 thousand American troops from Germany was de facto canceled by Joe Biden less than a month after he officially took office.

Speaking at the US State Department in early February, Biden announced a complete halt to the withdrawal of American troops from Germany. The formal motivation for the decision was the expectation of a report from the new head of the Pentagon Austin on the American military presence in countries around the world. Nonetheless, Biden emphasized that Austin would undertake a global review of troop deployments to ensure consistency with the “external policy and National Security Priorities ”- a statement perceived by a number of experts as a declaration of the expansion of the presence of the American army, including in European countries.

And this is all despite the fact that the citizens of these countries sometimes strongly oppose not only the expansion, but the general presence of American troops and weapons on their territory.

So, according to a sociological survey conducted in 2019, the overwhelming majority of German citizens - 86%, fully support the ban on the deployment of American nuclear warheads on German territory. At the same time, three quarters of Germans do not feel safe because of him, and 84% support the complete withdrawal of the US nuclear arsenal from Germany.

As the official representative of Greenpeace, who commissioned the study, noted, “The results of the survey are a clear demand for the German government not to deploy medium-range nuclear missiles on German territory” (quoted by DW).

However, this is where the main problem of European politics lies. On issues affecting US interests, a significant part of the European political elite would rather give in than advance the point of view of their own voters. As you know, democracy so much praised by the collective West ends exactly where American political interests begin, and the situation with the ignored opinion of German citizens is another confirmation of this. After all, no real action has been taken to withdraw American nuclear missiles from Germany and, apparently, will not be undertaken. Nor will there be an obvious referendum on the very question of their placement.

However, it would be naive to expect otherwise, given that the United States, as it became known in March 2020, is not only not going to withdraw the nuclear arsenal already stationed in Germany, but, on the contrary, plans to replace outdated warheads with more modern ones. The modernization involves the use of the latest modifications of the B61-12 guided aerial bombs, capable of more accurately aiming at the target through the use of an inertial guidance system. And the Pentagon plans to spend close to $ 10 billion on a project to upgrade the tactical nuclear arsenal - despite all the talk about the need to "reduce nuclear weapons."

And if this is not enough to prove the seriousness of the situation, then in October 2020, according to the largest German news agency DPA, the German Air Force began to practice maneuvers using aircraft capable of carrying tactical nuclear weapons on board. This took place within the framework of the NATO exercises "Resolute Noon", which fully fit into the concept of "joint nuclear missions" of the North Atlantic Alliance. And the fact that this, in fact, contradicts the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, NATO partners, apparently, does not interest. And in general, many German politicians, apparently, are not at all burdened by the fact that even 76 years after the occupation of Germany by the allies, the United States, unlike the USSR, does not even think to withdraw its troops from there.

However, the modernization of weapons and exercises in Germany are only part of the big picture. NATO's global plan to escalate tensions in Europe becomes much clearer when one looks at the actions of the key European ally of the United States - Great Britain, which on March 16 announced a buildup of nuclear warheads. As noted in the largest review of British foreign policy since the end of the Cold War, Britain will make every effort against the various types of "threats" posed by Russia. These efforts will primarily involve the expansion of the British nuclear arsenal by 44% at once. In particular, the number of Trident nuclear ICBMs in service with the UK is planned to be increased from 180 to 260. Not reduced. Enlarge.

In fact, the British decision is yet another proof that the collective West is seeking to drag Russia into another arms race. The new round of the Cold War is no longer the reasoning of experts, but an objective reality of the XNUMXst century, in which Russia and other countries, trying to defend the right to an alternative point of view from the American point of view, have to build a geopolitical strategy under conditions of the most severe external pressure.

The American establishment liked the concept of a unipolar world too much to abandon it so easily. Moreover, today many American politicians take it for granted - as a reward for winning the Cold War. And any dissent that does not coincide with their geopolitical interests, the United States assesses unequivocally - as a threat to the current state of affairs, which must be suppressed by any available means. Economic, diplomatic, intelligence and even military - there is no doubt that in the process of "protecting American interests" a full arsenal of methods will be used.

The key question is so that Russia can give a worthy response to all actions of the United States and its NATO allies. Of course, it is much more difficult to restore the positions of the Russian Federation, lost with the collapse of the USSR, than it is for the United States to defend the existing ones, but so far Russia is moving in the right direction. The main thing is not to give up slack and not to slow down.

    If Putin had not revived almost from scratch the Russian army destroyed by Gorbachev and Yeltsin, then we would have long been puppets of Uncle Sam, like all our former "brothers" and Eastern European countries under the Warsaw Pact.

          is it from a fairy tale how Stalin attacked Hitler?

          Did he attack? Why did Stalin need 24 tanks and 000 aircraft?
          I think that for Stalin, Hitler was LITTLE. He needed all of Europe.
          But here the most important thing is that Hitler was smarter than you and decided to get ahead and attack FIRST.
          Hitler determined the future of Europe and the Russian Federation. What is the RF now (((And the EU!)))
          Learn history more deeply. Why Stalin was not helped by his 24K tanks and 11K aircraft.
          The Germans had a PSHIK in comparison. If not for the two fronts of Hitler and Lend Lease for the USSR ...
          Would the USSR have had May 9th?

    The article is intended for those who think at least one step ahead. But in our country, the majority live in one day. Therefore, in the next decade, nothing will change, but it will only get worse. To change something, people who want these changes are needed, there are no such changes in the EU, and in our country, too, is in power.

    A sociologist is responsible for the industry, a music producer is in charge of aircraft construction, space programs are promoted by an international journalist, the National Research Center “Institute. NOT. Zhukovsky "is ruled by a banker. https://argumenti.ru/interview/2021/03/711995

    Our government directs all efforts so that this state of affairs persists as long as possible, and the United States demands complete submission. Hence the conflicts. Russia only states the facts, but does nothing in essence. And it is impossible to win a "war" only by defending oneself. And Putin and Lavrov are trying to persuade everything: "Let's live together."

    but so far Russia is moving in the right direction.

    From the article I did not understand where is the right direction? The author's conclusion is rather weak and there are no arguments. But I liked the article.

      The right direction is the desire to resist. Not to contemplate. But the article proves that if you sit motionless for a long time on the bank of the river, then the corpse of your enemy will float by. And it's not stupid. But ...
      If Lao Tzu lived in Russia now, he would probably continue the phrase "... but sometimes you need to help the enemy fall into the river."


      This is the purpose of the American "sanctions" - to kill the "elite" desire to resist.

    There was no victory. There was a violation of the gentlemen's agreement between the USSR and the USA. The USA turned out to be not gentlemen.
    By the way, before talking about disarmament, the United States must first eliminate its chemical weapons stockpiles.

    For everyone who wants to broaden their horizons, I would like to explain why NATO is a defensive organization.
    This is its NATO Charter. The entire NATO organization, if someone starts a war only when at least one NATO country is subjected to aggression, there will be a response from the entire NATO.
    Which does not prevent Turkey from waging its wars. Its war is its own responsibility. In parentheses I will add (even Turkey has enough to slow down the Russian Federation) And you, being a "Developing Country" according to the UN, are going to kick with the United States?
    So you will understand why Ukraine wanted to join NATO, but Putin did not.
    So you will understand why the Russian Federation was not afraid of aggression against Georgia. But She also wants to join NATO.
    For a small state, this is the only way to protect itself from the repetition of German Nazism in the Russian Federation.
    An opportunity to enter the society of developed modern states.

      Eck you, Vladimir, sausages from the "defensiveness" of NATO, the owner of which is the United States, which with its help have conducted, or are still waging wars with more than fifty countries, in which hundreds of thousands of civilians have died. NATO is a kind of chain dog of Washington and "Derzhimord" for the whole of Europe and the rest of the world, fighting for the interests and hegemony of only the United States, and nothing more, so we don't need to draw here from this organization a white and innocent lamb that they can believe in only undergrowth-bulked with "Bolotnaya".

          We were tasted by the Swedes-crusaders, and by the Poles with the Lithuanians. and the French, and the Japanese, and the Germans, and what came of it? And we do not yet have the desire to try to attack your NATO, but if necessary, you will receive a worthy answer, as in May 1945, but you just keep in mind that the USSR was attacked on June 22, 1941, not only by Germany, but by the very same NATO , or "the whole European army", which still cannot forgive us for their defeat in WWII - this is what the real realities of our and your life are, do not meddle with us with your de .. democracy, and you will live a long and happy life under the soles of American ankle boots.

            For Vladest. - Russia until 1917 was destroyed by the tsarist generals and liberals, who forced the tsar to abdicate and issued Order No. 1.
            And after 1917 was the year 1945 and the capture of Berlin, and Hitler's suicide. So they are quite worthy descendants!

It meant that in the event of a conflict with Russia, the Germans would die out en masse from Russian warheads, and in the event of resistance and unwillingness to get involved in the conflict on the side of the United States, the Americans would bomb them.

    So who is more resolute and firm in defending his own
    1) the intention to "disarm" Russia
    or
    2) Russia seeking to avoid conflict?

    This is not clear to me, to be honest ...

    I understand that you are an echo of Putin's media. The Jungle Book is large and has two versions for children in Russia and for adults.
    You're not even a product of the Mowgli cartoon.
    But the essence of everything I write in Kipling.
    He has a work "KIM". I recommend, there he describes how the British broke off the intelligence operation of the Republic of Ingushetia. To my credit, they tried not to kill two guys from the Ingush Republic there. They just took their intelligence material. This is a hint that Russia needs to be with the topic of who is closer in spirit, and not with the Chinese, otherwise it will be BAD for you.
    As it was that the Chinese call Putin's Russia "little sister", that it means homework for them.
    Although Kim's book is not about you, the last of Lenin and Stalin.
    But, if at least something truly Russian remains in you, you will understand me.
    You should also know that the monarchs of England and Russia were relatives.
    And in 1914 they began to crush German relatives together.
    And on the name day others went to see a friend.


    We are looking for two differences. Who where ?

      For Vladest: - The difference is that one of them turned out to be Cain! However, you can see Cain's deed and sympathize.

    ... the actions of the key European ally of the United States - Great Britain, which on March 16 announced an increase in the number of nuclear warheads.

    The British announced a "build-up" right after the START / START-3 treaty was extended earlier this year.

    Conclusion: the main strategic weapon of the Amerov is deception and violations. Which are like air for them. In doing so, they are clearly pretending that they do not trust Russia. And Russia has been put in a position: "even a tuft of wool from a black sheep."

    But this is the main danger. If you indulge a swindler for a long time, he is tempted. Uncertainty in this case is much more reliable. Because what was previously considered inconceivable, takes on blood and flesh and clear contours of real military planning. Russia is being led on sly Western "mnogohovochki", like a donkey to a carrot. In the hope of somehow reducing the confrontation. And the West hopes that when its advantages become critical, the Russian "leadership" will give it all away, without a single shot being fired.

    No one will win us, except for FUNNY simpletons at the helm of the country, time after time falling into traps due to stupid mistakes. Because, as their goal is to keep Russia in second place, after preserving the loot ... Suffice it to see how much time they devote to measures to increase their "rating". Those. PR then they are at every opportunity, even if they "did not stand next to" and never "lean" to failures. And this means that they do not have the level of responsibility that is so necessary now ...
