NATO considers the possibility of transferring combat fighters to help Kiev


Canada is considering strengthening its military mission in Ukraine amid debates over whether additional NATO forces can deter Russian President Vladimir Putin from "further aggression" against a neighboring country, the Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail writes on November 25.


Two informants familiar with the discussion told the publication that Defense Minister Anita Anand is studying the option of deploying hundreds of additional troops to support Canadian soldiers already in Ukraine on a training mission. Other options under consideration include the transfer of a warship to the Black Sea and the redeployment of some of the Romanian-based CF-18 Hornet fighter jets to help Kiev (Canada has 77 such units, of which 4-6 are periodically involved in patrolling the Romanian skies).

Any reinforcements would mean a message to Putin, who raised the alarm for the second time this year by concentrating troops and machinery near the borders of their country with Ukraine

- says the publication.

The publication clarified that, according to some estimates, there are about 100 thousand Russian troops within a few minutes' drive from Ukraine, "which Putin never considered a completely sovereign state and which he is determined not to admit to NATO." The crisis has been a severe test for Anand, who took over the military department last month.

She and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau must understand whether further Canadian support for Ukraine will help discourage Putin or push him into action.

- explains the publication.

Now about 200 Canadian soldiers are in Western Ukraine, where they train their Ukrainian colleagues. At the same time, informants stressed that the decision to deploy additional forces has not yet been made, despite desperate calls by the Ukrainian delegation at the recent Halifax Security Forum (an NGO headquartered in Washington, USA) for Canada and NATO to increase aid.

At the moment, this is still the status quo. There have been no changes in our position. We are closely monitoring the situation with our allies.

- said the spokesman for the Canadian Armed Forces, Lieutenant Commander Julie MacDonald.

But in the West and in Ukraine, they are concerned about the likelihood of a large-scale invasion of Russian troops, since the Russian Federation has repeatedly demonstrated its readiness to use force, the media summed up.

    Was the American aircraft carrier loaded with toilet paper off the coast of Georgia in 2008 also a message to Putin? ну еще парочка нигеров была, которых осетины за компанию с грызунами пристрелили...

    Canadian crews are not the best in NATO; their skins are saved only by the inadequately meager number of combat-ready fighters and class 1 pilots in the Russian Air Force.

      Wow. Do you have statistics on the class of combat pilots in Russia?

        Such statistics should be displayed on the resource, ruining it. Approximately 15%. Not enough, even for peacetime. The aircraft themselves are minuscule. Taking into account the size of the country's territory, and the operational zones of military districts and fleets. For example, in the MA KChF, next to Ukraine, fighters are an incomplete squadron There is no strike aviation at all. There is no organized aerial reconnaissance, minuscule refueling tankers, only four A-50Us.

          Since such a catastrophe. What then is a cascade of such articles about a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine?

            They will not fight with articles, but with ammunition and equipment. The long-term crisis is boring for everyone. It is resolved by war. Against the weakest victims. Russia is in a deliberately losing position. She expects a blow that will be delivered in the most inconvenient place for Russia and time. As in 1941. Moreover, it is not Stalin who is in command of Russia, and his people's commissars and generals.

              Yes, yes, of course)) Russia is in a tank, but your gentlemen do not dare to attack naked ... on a hedgehog. Russian air defenses will quickly equalize aviation, first to the equivalent, and then zero out those who do not have time to hide in Canada.

                There is no main component in Russian air defense. Modern AWACS and U complexes in adequate quantities, in accordance with the size of the zones of responsibility of military districts and fleets. And air defense corps and armies, with hundreds of fifth generation fighters. You buy yourself a whiter ticket, Mamkin Air Defense.

    The "unwelcome" Canadian media and their "informers" are blatantly lying, tk. "raised the alarm for the second time this year" not Putin and Moscow at all, but Washington and the Kiev ameromarionettes! negative
    And instead of as soon as possible to remove from the Western region of the Canadian military instructors, training "their Ukrainian colleagues(cave Banderopithecus under the leadership of kleptoligarchs - "w / Bandera", who occupied all of Ukraine in 2014!) "To kill civilians in Donbass and the South-East, the Canadian authorities are discussing the escalation of bloodshed by increasing the number of Canadian occupation troops on Ukrainian territory ?! am
    And the fact that for SEVEN YEARS their bloodthirsty "Ukrainian colleagues" use the armed forces in Donbass, every hour and every day killing local residents, sparing no one, about the "Alley of Angels" - hundreds of innocent kids killed by the banderonazis and other atrocities, heinous war crimes of their Kiev "wards", the hypocritical Canadian media are silent and DO NOT write !!!

    The policy of containing Russian expansion must be balanced but decisive. As far as I understand, Putin and his inner circle do not suffer from suicidal tendencies and will not ask for trouble. If the military contingents of NATO countries are stationed on the territory of Ukraine on a long-term basis, this will undoubtedly serve as a reliable obstacle to the new imperial ambitions of the Kremlin leadership.

      Yes, to fight and defend Ukraine and its oligarchs is stupider and more ridiculous than death for the great and invincible NATO. lol

      And here you are mistaken, Russia simply has nowhere to retreat, and this makes it doubly dangerous

        I completely agree with this statement, there really is nowhere to retreat further - corruption, a decline in the living standards of the population of the Russian Federation, depopulation of the titular nation, an increasing technological and scientific backwardness make the state extremely aggressive.

      But this is complete nonsense. Again. The war between Russia and NATO is only possible one-nuclear, neither Russia nor NATO will agree to this. Now Biden will bargain for the consequences of the invasion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass, Putin will have to promise that he will not go further than Kiev if the sanctions are moderate))

        Why would Biden bargain with Putin now? He will do this after the whole world sees the burning Russian equipment, as in Karabakh a year ago. Then his position in this trade will be much better.

    Canada is a very convenient target for the Russian Federation to demonstrate its nuclear power, in order to show in kind (on Canadians) amers and their mongrels what will happen if you cross the red line of the Russian Federation - you can easily shoot one ICBM, the amers had Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Russians might have Toronto and Vancouver

      In this scenario, the fate of Toronto or Vancouver will be shared by Moscow or Yekaterinburg with Novosibirsk.

          Yeah, dream. One joy - those who have real power in Russia and make decisions will be smarter than you.
