Putin spoke about Russia's response to the emergence of NATO strike complexes in Ukraine

The Kremlin did not disregard information about the possible appearance in Ukraine of NATO strike complexes that threaten Russia. Moscow can respond to this right now without waiting for the deployment of Western missile weapons. This was announced on November 30 by Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Russia Calling! VTB Capital investment forum, which was held in the format of a video conference.

The Russian leader noted that if such types of weapons are deployed in Ukraine, the flight time of missiles to Moscow will be 7-10 minutes, and for hypersonic units - 5 minutes. He made it clear that this is, in fact, an existential threat that requires urgent, extraordinary measures.

What are we to do? Then we will have to create something similar in relation to those who threaten us so. Can you imagine? And we can do it now

- Putin warned, hinting that Russia has sufficient military potential.

In addition, the head of state answered the question about the preparation of the Russian army for the "invasion" of Ukrainian territory, with which the West and Kiev regularly intimidate the international community.

The possible introduction of Russian troops into Ukraine was discussed at the beginning of the year and when we were conducting the Zapad-21 exercise. But, as we can see, this did not happen.

- Putin explained.

The master of the Kremlin emphasized that the point is not “to send troops or not, to fight or not to fight”, but in establishing relations to create a more equitable and sustainable development, taking into account the interests of all parties. In his opinion, if everyone sincerely strives for this, then no one will experience any threats.

At the same time, regarding the transfer of military equipment Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke about NATO towards the Russian borders. During a joint press conference with his Brazilian counterpart Carlos Alberto Franco França, he said that the West is pushing Kiev to anti-Russian activities and the Ukrainian authorities may go on a "military adventure."

Lavrov indicated that there is a process of concentrating the Alliance's armored vehicles near the Russian border. At the same time, Kiev is sending more and more forces and means of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the demarcation line in Donbass, and the number of Western instructors on Ukrainian territory is increasing.

The minister added that Russia does not need conflicts. At the same time, a direct threat to the security of the Russian Federation is being created. Moreover, the West is not trying to keep Kiev, but is doing everything possible to aggravate the situation. Therefore, Moscow will have to take all the necessary measures to ensure security itself.

    These are strange words from the Supreme.
    It seems to be formally - an equivalent response to a threat. Essentially, however, what is the answer?
    All advantages with a minimum flight time AT THE ATTACKING SIDE.
    The defending side will not be able to fully use its advantages, or will not be able to at all.
    The real answer would be an open military threat from our side for crossing the "red lines", an ultimatum demanding not to allow deployment.
    But we ourselves have already shown the West that we have little guts for this.
    And now we show it to the West once again

      I completely agree with you. In general, I get the impression that even if they get fucked up in Russia, we will continue to promise to do the same. To prevent this from happening, you need to be proactive. Where and in what way did Russia work ahead of the curve? Nowhere and in nothing. I am ashamed to hear these eternal blah, blah, blah from the mouth of the Foreign Ministry and the commander-in-chief. Who apparently hopes that the United States will come to its senses. Hopelessness.

        Regarding proactive actions, you are right, only it was necessary to start doing this, even when the question of joining NATO of the Baltic republics was being decided.
        The situation around us in the world would be completely different now.
        Even then, the country's leadership MUST understand this.

    The answer was not impressive.
    The adequate response of the Russian Federation would not be the creation of a base in Syria and Sudan, but the deployment of nuclear weapons in Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela.
    N.S. Khrushchev was more decisive and achieved his goal, the Sshasovites got out of Turkey.

      You are right, only in the Cuban missile crisis did our Tulip exercises play a key role "in one package" with the deployment of missiles - the world's first "warning shot" of nuclear weapons at a training ground on Novaya Zemlya.
      Hopefully, we have the Vanguards, so a "warning shot" of a nuclear warhead at the old test site on Novaya Zemlya with a corresponding ultimatum would be enough.
      The next warning could be done already at the Nevada landfill.

    Everyone really wants Putin to start swinging his saber stupidly. And he must be listened to more attentively, more thoroughly ...
    On 39.10 minutes of the video, Putin uttered a word that no one heard. On the video given in the post, this time is 1.22 minutes.

    ... in terms of threats, for people living in two unrecognized UNTIL republics of LPR, DPR ...

    This means that the issue has been resolved and such recognition will follow in the near future. I believed that the inclusion of the LDNR in the economic space of the Russian Federation is the last step before recognition. Therefore the word while noticed.
    It is difficult to make any accurate predictions, too many different factors are involved.
    But, perhaps, this will happen closer to the New Year. Not because they want to make a gift to the inhabitants of the LPR, but because the reaction of the West will be blurred. Everyone there will be fermenting for Christmas, this is sacred, then New Year ...
    And we can accept the necessary resolution in the State Duma and (or) the Federation Council. Will still be in place.
    Again, positive before the New Year in the Russian Federation and the LPR.

      He has been feeding everyone with such hints for a long time. A worked out technique. Supports a spark of hope in us. Plays for time both inside and outside. The question is why he needs this time.
      From what we see (and we can see a lot inside the country, but not everything), nothing changes fundamentally.
      I don’t believe in our version of "wunderwaffe" either. To apply it, a decision is needed, and the blow will be dealt exactly at the centers of its acceptance.

    In the event of a missile threat from near Konotop, our submarine forces with Zircons on the edge will have to conduct constant watch in constant readiness for the use of weapons in the centers of the United States. To do this, you just need to have at least three such submarines.

      You are not considering the time chain. I think - do not meet:
      - threat identification
      - formation of the report to the top and its transmission
      - receiving a report and making a decision on the use of weapons by decision-making centers
      - giving orders
      - transmission of instructions for communication facilities
      I'm not sure if 5 minutes is enough even to make a decision.
      In any case, this is a great temptation to hit us immediately before we have time to change the situation.

        Not to mention the fact that the intention to strike will be known in advance. There are more than enough Stirlitz in the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Everyone wants to live and, if possible, good.

    in fact, the current situation with Donbass, where the west turns a blind eye to the daily shelling of civilians in Donbass with Ukrainian artillery, is a good opportunity to poke the west with a nose at the inconsistency of their approach to the values ​​that they proclaim. Someone from the first and second persons could ask a Western journalist on record how he personally relates to the fact that the Ukrainian Armed Forces have been bombarding Donbass residents every day with large-caliber artillery, as they say, for 8 years. Some Western journalist tried to find out how people live in Donbass under the shelling of Ukraine, what they think and what they want. The West, with its cynicism, itself discredits the values ​​about which it speaks so much. Inhabitants of Donbass do not exist for the West, this is "something" of an incomprehensible sort, approximately on the level of those Afghans who fell down from the landing gear of flying planes in Kabul.

    Someone might say that we have a modern "dead hand" and we can generally allow them whatever they want outside our borders. But is it really so?
    The formation of a continuous infrastructure of NATO and the States around us is:
    - “wall of hatred” that will be grown by hardworking gardeners
    - "wall of weapons" attached to our head
    - an infinite number of possible operational options for attacking us
    - the potential for our physical isolation from the outside world
    - the final loss of credibility among potential partners and allies and an impetus for their transition to the side of our enemy
    Finally, like any technical means, the “dead hand” must have its limitations and vulnerabilities.

    In general, from Putin's speech, one thing is clear, he himself does not know what to do. Some kind of concern in the style of solving the problem by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs .... We are concerned, we warn, we will answer ... Any normal specialist sees that a pistol is being put to the "head" of Russia. The rocket will fly from the border of Poland, Romania, Ukraine for 5-7 minutes. to Moscow. But we not only have Moscow, there are other cities of St. Petersburg, Sochi, Arkhangelsk ... where the flight time is even less. Instead of clearly saying that only an ATTEMPT to deploy missiles in Ukraine, the Baltic States, Poland, Romania will provoke the Caribbean Crisis-2, our Guarantor launched into some threats that no one could understand ... What the Norwegian Stoltberg voiced, this is really a real danger ... To which Russia should respond super-harshly, and not chew with snot.

      It seems that this power by the States is "broken", if it has not always been so.
      I repeat: it was necessary to actively oppose the States even when the question of the Baltic republics joining NATO was being decided.
      Even then, the country's leadership MUST understand where all this is leading.
      After all, he already had "fresh experience" of Yugoslavia and Iraq.
      The line of retreat in front of the United States has been clearly visible ever since.
      One cannot help but recall that the authorities received their powers directly from Yeltsin's hands.
      Who could he give it to?
      Crimea is an incomprehensible exception that confused everyone. The government, which had already lost its support among the people, received a new credit of confidence.
      It is actually difficult to judge how it was with the Crimea. Sources can voice the legend. Maybe it was the initiative of the Headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet, which was forced to support, and write down the government as an asset?

    They all perceived in different ways: someone earlier, someone later. It turned out - it can be different.
    It turns out that conformism with internal and external forces is the main secret of his "success".
