Shoigu announced Russia's response to NATO's approach


The North Atlantic Alliance continues to build up its forces in Europe, thereby threatening the security of the Russian Federation. The head of the Russian defense department at a meeting of the collegium of the ministry on May 31 outlined Moscow's response to the approach of NATO.


According to Sergei Shoigu, the flights of the Western bloc's strategic aviation near the Russian borders are becoming more and more intensive. The ships of the alliance with cruise missiles on board are participating in NATO maneuvers dangerously close to the Russian Federation. Thus, the West, led by Washington, is destroying the European security architecture and forcing the Russian leadership to take appropriate retaliatory measures. To respond to the challenges of a potential adversary, the Kremlin decided to strengthen its military grouping along its western borders.

By the end of the year, about 20 formations and military units will be formed in the Western Military District

- noted the Minister of Defense of Russia.

The newly formed units will be supplied with the latest military machinery and weapons systems. In total, this year the troops of the Western District will receive about two thousand weapons.

Shoigu added that in general, in Russian units on the western borders of the country, servicemen continue to improve their combat skills. The quality of teamwork is also improving. The intensity of the performance of combat missions by the Baltic Fleet ships increased by a third, the air raid of the Western Military District increased by 4 percent.

The age limit for military service - XNUMX. The age limit for military service is established for:
      Marshal of the Russian Federation, army general, fleet admiral, colonel general, admiral - 65 years;

      Because everyone is aware of what is unknown Igor Berg (Igor Berg) ??

      the same law provides for the extension of service after reaching the maximum age for military professionals. The military in the rank of marshal to colonel-general can now sign their last contract up to 70 years, other servicemen - up to 65.

      It does not concern him, he is a minister.
      As a marshal, he has the right to wear a military uniform in retirement, and as a minister, he can remain in service for a long time.

      And you know, Igor Berg, that A.V. Suvorov started his Swiss campaign at the age of 69? So, when NATO develops a new Barbarossa plan near the western borders of the Russian Federation, Shoigu may well come up as defense minister.
      By the way, M.I. Kutuzov was 67 years old in the Battle of Borodino!

    Only an adequate and decisive response to provocations can stop the provocations of the United States and NATO - either Sshasov, or a British ship, here and there, invade the territorial waters of the Russian Federation, then imitate a nuclear strike, and rattle weapons at the very borders of the Russian Federation, not to mention the traditional aggressive rhetoric and how does the RF respond to all this? It expels, accompanies, etc., but one should not expel and accompany, but drown and demonstrate determination not at the North Pole where three substrates surfaced but none of them even banged, or far from the western borders - in the North Caucasus and the far east, and off the coast of the United States, in the North Sea off the coast of Britain, in the Bay of Biscay off the coast of France, in the Norwegian Sea off the coast of Norway and other NATO members. Maybe then they will think about it, and if not, their choice. As Vladimir Putin said, we will die, but they will also die.

      What distance from the Russian border in kilometers should be considered "about"? I think at home you can even go a meter to the border and not violate it, and that's my business. At home I am the master.

        What distance from the Russian border in kilometers should be considered "about"?

        Autumn 2020. the British destroyer propelled 2 km into our territorial waters near the Crimea.
        This year, in the Peter the Great Gulf, the amers' ships also pushed through the line that we declared our border in this gulf. The same Americans are also straightening their borders in the bays. Plus, accusing us of violating agreements, they themselves did not sign this agreement.

        At home I am the master.

        The owner at home is in his territorial waters, and not thousands of kilometers from them. There is already the threshold of someone else's house. In the Gulf of Peter the Great, it almost ended in a ram, as in the USSR. The ship has already gone to ram. the Americans fled in time.
        There were a lot of cases that the planes were being felled both on their territory and near the borders. Try to prove that you did not fly over the border. It is necessary - the work of the GPS satellite will be disrupted. There was one amateur hooligan who, on the MiG-29 (or Su 27, I don't remember), bypassed those who were too arrogant and poured fuel onto them. Sometimes the tail touched their wings inadvertently. They reproached him for show, transferred from the Far East to the European part, but served perfectly. When it was necessary, they asked to punish the boors. And now there are guys who will not refuse.
        And the ships rammed. And there was no war. And now the United States is not in the shape to run into.
        "Die" is more of a bluff. But they are afraid of the Russians. In case of exacerbation, they will be handed back. The recent events around Ukraine have demonstrated this.

          There is such a thing as an "incident". Single violations have different causes from intent to error. There are already polished rules for this.
          Territorial on that and there are such that would be the master there. But international waters are for everyone and you don't have to tell what to do there and who can be there.
          Why should only Russians be afraid? At the beginning of the Second World War, the Germans captured 5 million brave men. Were they not all Russians?

  4. Funny ... Starting with Putin's "Munich" speech in 2007, they challenge the West and the existing world order every day ... and now (when all Russia's neighbors threw themselves under the umbrella of the West, away from an inadequate and aggressive neighbor fighting the windmills of civilization) they suddenly yelled that it is supposedly NATO is coming))
    The Russian language, of course, allows you to turn any fact upside down .. But even in the manipulation of phrases, you need to have a conscience

    which we have declared as our boundary in this gulf

    Who else in the world has recognized these boundaries?
    Does human civilization interfere with you, dear Russian patriot? Maybe all of us, all more than 200 countries will pack up our things and get off the planet, so as not to interfere with you Russians, to be in charge here and arbitrarily set borders (threatening with nuclear weapons) ..?
    Your media are only howling about fascism in Ukraine ... but I would recommend opening a handbook to all of you and reading what fascism is ... and this is exactly what we are seeing:
    a state-corporation of an authoritarian type, obsessed with militarism, ignoring international generally accepted norms. And defining their rights (and boundaries) from a position of strength. With the installation that "we are great, we are superhumans, and" they "are little pot-bellied," European homosexuals "," stupid pins, dos "and" beggars Ukrainians "and so on .."
    wake up gentlemen ..! you slept through fascism!

      That is why you in your Ukraine, as soon as you do not have that conscience, in what positions do not twist. wink
      Hey, "non-fascist", the pen on May 9 after the veterans of the zigzag is not numb? Does the oil from the Natsik's torch drip on the pleshka? Tired of standing near a gilyaka in anticipation of a moskalyaka, jumping up and down in anguish?
      Your GENERAL ACCEPTED norms are norms for lackeys from your matrassan owner, and we are just scoundrels who do not want to be in front of him for a small cookie with you in the same bent-hungry formation? Ay-y-yay ...
      How do you like the "windmill of civilization" - you didn't inflate the bags of euro and lace panties? Tourist visa-free immediately eliminated your guano from under the windows on the sidewalk, or is there a need for Schengen so that you will forever "go to Zurich"?
      We are not "great men", but a great multinational people! It is not blood that makes people great, but spirit! And you were once like that, once ... and now Biden, sitting on the way into the presidential chair of the "jumpers", remembers you, only looking at his dusty boots.
      P.S. for the Russian language and real facts, do not grind in vain, it is not yours now, you have refused it at all levels wink

    All my relatives (two hundred people, including newborns) live in Kharkiv and Kharkiv region .. There are NO more relatives in Ukraine ..!
    The rest of the relatives live in the Russian Federation (and there is even an "army dynasty", not only men serve in the RF Armed Forces, but even my two cousins ​​... One is now serving in the Arctic
    I have nothing to do with Galicia .. And nevertheless, even my relatives in the Russian Federation, on their offer to come "to protect us, Russian-speaking," I constantly repeat in a telephone conversation: it means we will meet in the trenches ..
    We, "Russian-speaking" Ukrainians, are not waiting for ANYONE ..! We don’t ask for any help .. And in general, guys, go to hell with your mentoring "Great Russian" tone (I apologize for the openness of your soul)! ..
    Please learn to talk with your neighbors as equals. And not to intimidate with your military power .. And then everything will work out
