The 18th Guards Motorized Rifle Division of the Russian Federation will be able to conquer Eastern Europe


The RF Ministry of Defense continues to hastily strengthen the defense of the Kaliningrad region. In this exclave, cut off from the rest of Russia and sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland, the formation of the 2021th Guards Motorized Rifle Division (MSD) will be completed by the end of 18. In fact, it is a small, highly mobile army, capable of independently "rolling" through Eastern Europe with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces and ships of the Baltic Fleet equipped with Kalibr cruise missiles. What are the goals actually pursued by the department of Sergei Shoigu?


As you know, the Kaliningrad region became part of the USSR as a result of the Second World War, when East Prussia, previously belonging to the Third Reich, was divided into two unequal parts between Moscow and Warsaw as compensation for military aggression by Nazi Germany. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, it turned into an exclave, pressed against the sea between Lithuania and Poland. Today it is the most strategically important Russian region in Europe, where our Baltic Fleet is stationed and from where Iskander-M missile systems cover the key objectives of NATO's infrastructure. No armed conflict between Russia and the North Atlantic Alliance is simply impossible without a preliminary attempt by the Western military bloc to eliminate the "Kaliningrad threat" in advance. Every year, Brussels conducts dozens of military exercises, openly aimed at preparing for the blockade and seizure of this Russian exclave. But in 2021, the volume and scale of these maneuvers just rolls over. Let's take a quick look at the “event program” which is quite impressive.

Thanks to the media, Russians are already well aware of the Defender-Europe 21 exercise, which is to become the largest in the Old World after the end of the Cold War. The "skirmisher" is, of course, the United States, but besides them, another 25 countries are taking part in the maneuvers. In addition to long-standing NATO members, Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, as well as all the countries of the Western Balkans (except Serbia. Thank you, brothers!) Will also join Defender-Europe 21. The maneuvers will take place on the territory of 16 European states. An important nuance is that several related exercises will be held simultaneously with Defender-Europe 21: Swift Response, Immediate Response and Saber Guardian. As part of Swift Response, nearly seven thousand soldiers and officers will train airborne assault forces in Estonia, Bulgaria and Romania. Their goals were clarified by U.S. Army General Walters:

During the exercise, we will practice what is called a combined-arms airborne assault operation, improve our anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense, conduct live firing and command-and-staff games. Thus, we will train both muscles and intelligence. And we are confident that we will eventually increase combat readiness in all areas.

Note that we are talking specifically about the "airborne assault operation", and even combined arms. I wonder who exactly they are learning to storm there? There are, in fact, very few options. Against Russia, of course. Let us also pay attention to how NATO emphasizes the defensive nature of its exercises and categorically denies the relationship between them and the recent "surprise check" of Russian troops, which were pulled to the Ukrainian border. But let us doubt this. Exercise "Defender-Europe 21", when tens of thousands of troops of the alliance with the combat technique, can be a kind of "roof" for Kiev, if he nevertheless decides to conduct a "blitzkrieg" against the unrecognized republics of Donbass. In addition, small Estonia is a stone's throw from Kaliningrad, and next to the exclave there are other NATO member states, where military infrastructure for possible aggression has been preparing for a long time.

Simultaneously with the exercises "Defender-Europe 21" ("Defender of Europe)", organized by the United States, maneuvers with the similar name "Steadfast Defender 2021" ("Steadfast defender") will be held in Europe, already along the lines of the North Atlantic Alliance. And these are completely different teachings that are being conducted in parallel. Why such a division?

In "Steadfast Defender 2021" will participate 20 member countries of the alliance, as well as adjoining them Finland and Sweden. They are inherently even more interesting than the American teachings. Their first part will consist of training the delivery of a military convoy from the United States to the Old World across the Atlantic Ocean. Protection will be provided by 20 ships at once, led by the British aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth and its 40 aircraft, including fifth-generation fighters F-35. At the second stage, the operational transfer of troops between European countries from the south of Germany, where a new NATO support and logistics command has been created in the city of Ulm, will be worked out. At the last, third stage, Turkey will land XNUMX troops of the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force on the Romanian Black Sea coast.

In general, people are getting ready to fight, as Lieutenant General Brice Ude, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Supreme Command of NATO forces in Europe, directly confirmed:

This is what the soldiers do. They train. We must train. If we don't train, then we are not ready.

So we are getting ready. The Russian motorized rifle division in the Kaliningrad region is a small but very mobile group of troops for 13-15 thousand "bayonets", divided into six regiments: tank, artillery, anti-aircraft missile and three motorized rifle regiments. It also has its own reconnaissance battalion, electronic warfare units, RChBZ, UAV, anti-tank, repair and recovery, medical, etc. This should be enough to stop the enemy offensive and make a swift counterattack.

    Any military operation involves losses. How many corpses of its soldiers will this "conquest" cost for the division? In 2014, the entire Russian army was never able to completely occupy Novorossia from Ukraine.
    Will you try?

            That's right! All that is in the LDNR I mean the weapons of 400 tanks, air defense systems, electronic warfare, hailstones, hurricanes, etc. - the miners and tractor drivers got it all out of the mines, then they learned how to use it all via the Internet. Yes, I completely forgot, all this junk needs to be kept, right? Therefore, they built a rem. factories, oil refineries - to fill, too, with what you need.

      No one was going to occupy Ukraine. Too much has to be invested in it then. Why do we need this?
      By the way, do not dream either. When there is nothing to eat, you will figure it out yourself. Look, there is no longer enough money for the Defense Forces 'orchestra and for the chaplains' service, dissolve ...
      And this division has a very specific task. And this is not the conquest of Europe, even Eastern.
      In the event of an attack on the Russian Federation or the Republic of Belarus, the Suwalki corridor is broken through. For this, her strength is enough, especially if someone moves towards.

        In the same way, no one is going to seize Ukraine and Russia. We will have to take upon ourselves the costs to raise the standard of living in the Russian Federation to the level of the EU. The cost of the war itself speaks for that. And so Russia sells everything it needs at competitive prices.

      There was once in the Russian Federation the great commander Pasha-Mercedes, who intended to restore order in Chechnya with the forces of one airborne regiment in three days, and everyone knows what this intention was. Now there are no less creative personalities - they are going to conquer Europe with the forces of one motorized rifle division. Probably such would-be strategists breed in Russia by budding, otherwise there is no way to explain their numbers ...

              I really left Odessa in 1990. And my, now deceased father, fought on the Voronezh front, which in the fall of 1943 was renamed the First Ukrainian. He went to the front in incomplete 17, attributing to himself two years, fought in the regimental intelligence. And when he left the USSR, he was demanded to hand over his military awards. It's good that I managed to get around this requirement for little money, my father's awards are kept with me today and will be carefully passed on to our family further ...

            For some reason, you are modestly silent about the fact that a bloody civil war was going on in Russia at that time, the Polish jackal chose a very successful time to attack Russia, but even in such a situation they got in the teeth and began to retreat, and shamefully would have lost if not for intervention and help from France. Well, as for Afghanistan ... the United States, for which you are praying, didn’t succeed there either, but it’s somehow inconvenient to talk about it, isn’t it?

And the Poles in 1920. the Bolsheviks were not attacked, it was the Bolsheviks who then decided to take Warsaw as the first step towards the world revolution.

Having barely gained independence, Poland unleashed aggressive wars with almost all of its neighbors, including against Belarus and the UPR. yes, the USSR collapsed, and figs with it, you live in the past, a new generation is already growing up, and let the Americans continue to live successfully at home, and we live and will live successfully in our country, and no one can stop us from doing this

      The division was castrated during the Soviet era (have you heard about "cropped divisions"?)
      With the advent of "democracy," things got really tight. You can't feed a large family for a ruble. request

            For the army, Poplar, Caliber and Armata,
            For the bolt that is put on the States and NATO.
            For Syria, space and the Olympics,
            For every success, achievement, reward.
            Because there were Zhukov, Kutuzov, Vatutin,
            Because there is Putin in Russia today!
            Pots do not sow, do not build, do not plow.
            The pots are waiting for the end of the "Rush" ...

            Probably Judas and Mazepa had children. And I know where their descendants live - "404".

              Guys, I'll tell you more !!! We lived in the USSR so that the West could build all the infrastructure, factories, factories, power plants for nothing, now, as a result, see who owns all this and how they ruined us !!!! Soon, when everything is worn out again, the USSR will be created so that we would build everything, and they will take it away again later !!!
              But at least we can immediately see that traitors and scum are in power and you are still gloating over your eyes, gradually allowing enemies to reach their borders and they themselves are calling you to develop the Arctic, get ready to be a deeply northern country and leave us traitors !!!!

                "And we already understood what kind of brothers you are !!!"

                I agree with him - from the word "absolutely".

                  It's just that stupid people do not understand how many people were killed after your betrayal in 2014 in Ukraine, you sleep in warm beds and your conscience does not torment you, BUT God does not see Yashka who is in trouble !!!!!

    It all sounds a little strange. First, "conquer"? What is meant? To conquer, occupy and retain? Absolutely incredible, with American tanks in the rear, in Estonia. And what does "eastern Europe" mean, where is it eastern? Geographically, these are Belarus, Ukraine, Russia.
