NATO puts forces on standby and sends troops to Eastern Europe


The North Atlantic Alliance on its nato.net resource reports the transfer of forces to a state of combat readiness and the dispatch of additional units to Eastern Europe to strengthen the defense of the allied countries. The reason for such urgent action is that, according to NATO, Russia continues to build up its military muscles "in and around Ukraine."


For example, Denmark is sending a frigate to the Baltic and plans to send four F-16 fighter jets to Lithuania. Spain is also sending its navy to strengthen the Western bloc's capabilities and is considering deploying fighter jets to Bulgaria. France intends to send troops to Romania under the auspices of the North Atlantic Alliance.

In addition, the Netherlands will send two F-35s to Bulgaria in April this year to support NATO's air patrol mission in the region, as well as one ship and ground combat teams for the alliance's Rapid Reaction Force.

Washington also announced the possibility of sending additional contingents to Eastern Europe.

NATO will continue to take all necessary measures to protect its allies, including by strengthening the eastern wing of the alliance. We will always respond to any decline in security levels, including by strengthening our collective defense

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said.

    Well, the 4th Reich is preparing a new "Barbarossa" against Russia. Which one? Poles, Swedes, Kaiser Wilhelm, Napoleon, Hitler... Have you forgotten anyone?

      they are not idiots, they understand perfectly well that one volley of Iskanders from Kaliningrad is enough to destroy Eastern Europe and the Baltic states. all that remains for them is to explain and make faces like monkeys in a zoo)) but the Svidomo people are probably already waiting for the Muscovites to take them, so as not to end up on the street because of debts for heating and utilities)

    All these gestures are only to calm the Europeans. There, they say, look, in the month of April we will send planes - and the Russians will be very, very scared. As many as two planes - this is not a cart with manure for you.
    And in April, no one will remember these plans.

    there is such a European tradition - once every 100 years, everyone should gather together and get zvizduli from Russia, it seems that the time has come. ocean. Otherwise, this state will again profit from the bombed-out Europe and Russia, while they themselves will remain on the sidelines.

    they just need to do such things so that there are no thoughts in Europe that NATO is afraid that NATO is not consolidated, that the allies will be abandoned if it becomes too dangerous. NATO needs to somehow justify its existence. All these actions are purely symbolic, while the scale of the build-up of troops is rather modest. The exercises are of course provocative, but even here the United States needs to demonstrate to Europe the presence of a defender and his "readiness" to defend. And then after Afghanistan there are big doubts. This is more a message to himself than to Russia, at least for now.

    For this little thing, I think even the projectile should not be used. But for example, the headquarters ... In particular, Petagon, NATO .... It really deserves to burn in hell.

    nato heh and for a long time in a state of fear of the Russian Federation, only the fear of losing funding (job) makes them portray the circus tent to laugh at the nuclear Iskanders of Kaliningrad
  7. If at 4.00 o'clock on June 22, 1941, on the border with the EU, there were 5 lyams of K-army soldiers snoring from anger with attached bayonets, and in their rear the engines of 10 thousand Russian tanks were warming up, and clouds of Russian aircraft were loitering in the sky - Handsome Alfie would not dare attack Russia! Here's how to act right now to prevent the EU from starting World War 3 with Russia again!
