Media: Russia will carry out rocket launches and bombing near the UK


The Russian Navy and Aerospace Forces are preparing to carry out missile launches and bombing near Great Britain and Ireland. This was reported on January 22 by the Irish portal TheJournal.


The online publication notes that Dublin received a notification of a major exercise of the fleet and aviation of the Russian Federation in the Atlantic. Firing should take place 240 km southwest of the coast of County Cork in early February.

The exact details of exactly what forces and means Moscow will use are still unknown. But the Irish Aviation Authority has already confirmed that it must reroute commercial flights and issue an appropriate airspace closure warning. The specified area is a section of the international (neutral) water area located within the exclusive economic zone of Ireland patrolled by Irish warships and aircraft.

But with the limited capabilities of our patrol aircraft and fleet, it is very difficult to track anything on this scale.

a security source told the media.

Russia announced that it is starting large-scale exercises around the world with all the fleets at its disposal (more than 140 ships will be involved). The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation informed that the maneuvers of the Navy will begin at the end of January and end in February. They will pass in all oceans and many seas, including the Mediterranean.

Former Defense Forces officer Catal Berry, an Irish lower house MP, said in an interview that this is not unprecedented, but unusual, as the shooting will take place very close to Ireland.

This is what great powers do. But these exercises are more poseur in nature and represent an exchange of "courtesies" of Russia with European countries.

Barry said.

He pointed out that the Russians could have fired anywhere, but they specifically chose this particular place. He therefore sees the exercises as a potential threat to Ireland's sovereignty.

From a military point of view, the problem is that exercises are a very easy way to gather a large number of military forces and assets in the right area under false pretenses and become a harbinger of other actions.

Berry concluded.

    When the ultimatum was set, did they also think about the exercises? What is the point of teaching when you were sent? All these ultimatums, teachings, are show-offs for internal consumption. It seems that Putin and Biden are playing their own game. So far, there is little information, but the fact that they are holding us for suckers is for sure! Raven, you won't gouge out a crow's eye.

      Where do you come from?
      1. If these are "antlers" for domestic consumption, then Putin probably thought about how this "internal" would react to his passivity? And what was the point then? Shoot yourself in the foot? WELL, yes, Putin is so stupid, the highest ranks, generals, advisers, ALL are so stupid, and you are the smartest. The answer will be 100%, and no one, (Well, who has an IQ above 80) has no doubt about it.
      2. It turns out that Putin and Biden have a funny game.
      3. Not a sucker here only 1, who do you think?

        Let's do it. If within 6 months, when Putin was sent, there is no concrete answer or case from Putin, then you will no longer be heard here and seen too. But if Putin is a "kid" who is responsible for the words, then you will not see or hear me here anymore. That is, it turns out the deadline ..... July 2022. Do you accept the bet?

              In June everyone will announce that he won the bet
              One will say the troops did not enter Prague, which means there is no pressure
              The second regiment deployed is that no pressure

          I think you and respected Volkonsky six months later there will be an argument about what to consider as the answer of the "kid". You will assure that the answer is "not boyish", it is purely concretely "boyish". I would advise you to define the term "the kid who is responsible for the words."

            What about the ultimatum? And sent why, for what Wishlist Putin? Actually, the right "boys", when they are sent, they immediately hit the lobeshnik, and do not think for six months. Here is an adjustment for the level of education. Maybe it will come? Better late than never.

              It is clear that no one will leave NATO at the request of the Russian Federation. It is clear that Ukraine and Georgia will not be in NATO in the foreseeable future. Well, let's say the West will agree to a new CFE treaty. Limitation of armaments, possibly limitation of foreign contingents in the countries of Eastern Europe (I think all this pandemonium with ultimatums is aimed precisely at this, at least this is the only reasonable explanation). Which one of you is right then?

                We are talking about the security of Russia. Therefore, if such an agreement appears, then I will be happy about it and agree to lose. And if Ukraine becomes about Russian, I’ll get drunk in general and everything else will not matter.

      They hold the steelworker for a sucker:

      Irish portal TheJournal.

      Online edition notes.

      Steelmaker, you have long been "held" by such "sources", but you yourself are a goof and a propagandist in one bottle. laughing

    maneuvers of the Navy will begin at the end of January and end in February ... that's right, for the period of the OLYMPIC GAMES, to hobble the zealous NATO members a little ... if only the Britons didn’t slip a plane or yacht under the shot of the British .... they are provocateurs with experience
  3. And it would be nice to test Poseidon in small Britain! Then there will be a screech!

        Personally, I understand everything. Whatever Putin does, you will not admit your defeat in the bet.
        You will continue to run around the Internet and shout about your dissatisfaction with them.

          Whatever Putin does

          So let's do something first. The point is, he won't do anything. To talk, to PR, to engage in talking, but to do something, no. I admit my defeat if there are cases, and not a talking shop as it is now.

    I think Steelevar will be bored very soon without you and your emotions... Putin was not sent, he will wait a week or two for an answer. We are all people of different understandings and views, this is the meaning of our whole life. Do you think that you are smarter than Russian President Putin? Do you think that the person who controls the largest part of the earth does not understand his actions and what to do?

    I'm not strong in international law ... It's just that exercises in international waters and in the exclusive economic zone of a foreign country seem to me to be somehow too much. It’s just that if this is true, there will be so many scouts around our ships that it simply won’t be possible to conduct an exercise, especially firing missiles and bombing ... Bombing is carried out from aircraft, we essentially don’t have naval aviation, where we send bomb strategists to walk around Irish sea water?
    Or will we conduct exercises to destroy submarines with bombs from ships in foreign waters?
    I just can't imagine the fleet of a foreign country conducting military exercises in our exclusive economic zones!
    The article looks like a dump!
