Polish press: Russia warns Denmark about the consequences of the deployment of US troops on the island of Bornholm


Moscow began to threaten Copenhagen, warning it of serious consequences in the event of the deployment of American troops on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. In a sharp diplomatic struggle, Russia and Denmark have already managed to exchange notes on this issue, writes the Polish edition wiadomosci.wp.pl.


The publication notes that in early February, Copenhagen and Washington reported that they had begun working on a new defense agreement, which could lead to the appearance of US troops on Danish territory in the future. At the same time, Russia opposes this, it objects and expresses concern, referring to a 1946 document that makes this impossible.

In support of its position, the Russian embassy in Copenhagen presented a note dated 1946 on the transfer of the Bornholm island by the USSR to Denmark. The document expressly forbids the Danes to allow troops of other states there. This is the official correspondence between Vyacheslav Molotov, then head of the USSR Foreign Ministry, and Danish diplomat Thomas Dössing. She proves that Copenhagen agreed to this condition.

The exchange of these documents constitutes an agreement. Expiry date not specified. According to international law, this means that the agreement is indefinite and remains in force.

indicated in the statement of the Russian diplomatic mission.



Danish experts question Moscow's version and believe that Copenhagen made no commitments. Therefore, there are no legal obstacles to the possible deployment of foreign troops on the island. The discussion sparked a heated debate. However, Russian diplomats insist that they are right, since the Russian Federation is the successor to the USSR.

If Copenhagen allows such a move - if foreign troops are allowed to appear on Bornholm - Moscow will have to think about the consequences for relations between Russia and Denmark.

Russian Ambassador to Copenhagen Vladimir Barbin said in an interview with the Danish newspaper Berlingske.

In response, Danish Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod said that it was Copenhagen that would resolve any issues on the territory of Denmark, and not Russia, the Polish press summed up.

We remind you that the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines pass near Bornholm Island. At the same time, the Americans do not hide their interest in these pipelines, through which gas from Russia should be transported to Germany. Copenhagen could not resist Berlin on the issue of laying pipelines within the European Union. However, now, as part of NATO, it is taking the lead in strengthening US activities in Europe amid hysteria about Russia's "inevitable invasion" of Ukraine.

    We still cannot avoid a head-on confrontation with the United States and Great Britain. It is foolish to try to avoid a collision if you need to force them to retreat. One excludes the other.
    Therefore, we will have to "go head-on" and force the enemy to retreat.
    Or they will continue to force us to retreat. And so - until complete surrender to the West

      Denmark is a sovereign country and is able to figure out where and what to place on its territory! Or is the island of Bornholm already “Crimea is ours”? Adolf Hitler also fought with the whole world, although he had allies: Italy, Japan, do you know the result? Does Russia have such allies?

              And what has America done to you and Russia that is so bad? Well, Ukraine wants to live with its own brains. In America, children, relatives, capital, real estate "ruling" Russia, and you want them to be the Yad bomb? Yes, you need to be treated at least, because you are encroaching on the "most sacred" that the rulers of modern Russia have!

            You yourself know that this is a lie. Everyone already knows the real story of the Caribbean crisis.
            If the USSR had not frightened the Americans in 1962 with the upcoming nuclear war, they would not have removed the missiles of the "decapitation" strike from Turkey and Italy.
            Who knows what this superiority would lead to if it remained in their hands for a longer time. They had good reasons - the socialist camp then grew by leaps and bounds.
            You lost accuracy - the mask began to slip.

              Soviet waved a club after the Caribbean crisis. The main cooler of Soviet diplomats was located in the area of ​​the Cyprus Gulf of Ayia Napa. These were American submarines with Regulus missiles. They got the capital of the USSR from there. And the Soviet Navy then did not have adequate forces in the Mediterranean naval theater. That is why the leaders of the USSR began to quickly create the 5th operational squadron. By 1975 it was a powerful task force. with a whole division of Tu-22. With naval strike aircraft. With nuclear and diesel submarines. There was no PLO aviation. The current Mediterranean ship group of the Navy is its pathetic likeness. Then they could inflict unacceptable damage on the US 6th Fleet. Not mosquito bites like now.

              You say the socialist camp, but who from this camp wanted to fight, maybe Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, the GDR? And the Caribbean crisis - I think, if not for Kennedy, then Khrushchev would have plunged the USSR into a nuclear abyss! Yes, there would have been a blow to the United States, but you and I would definitely not have been! Yes, and today's leadership and the oligarchs of the Russian Federation would already be in paradise, as they now want to send the population of the Russian Federation there, well, in hell! Wherever you want, I'll stay here!

    She merged her sovereignty to the states, like many other countries in the West. And yet the question remains relevant - but for some reason, sticking a dirty shtatovsky nose into the internal affairs of Russia and other sovereign states is not considered interference? Even in those years (the end of the 80s and the first half of the 90s), when naive and gullible Russians boundlessly trusted the United States and the West, they continued to methodically humiliate and destroy Russia, but did not have time before Putin came. Thanks, by the way, to nuclear weapons.

    What was transferred by Russia and is being used against it must be returned to its native harbor, like Crimea. And do not fucking scare Russia with sanctions. As Slepakov sang, Russia is a woman with a solid instrument, so be careful gentlemen.
