Russia adequately responded to NATO exercises in the Baltic Sea


More than a dozen Su-24s and Su-27s of the Baltic Fleet, under the cover of fighters, attacked targets imitating landing ships. The exercises that took place the day before were clearly our response to the NATO maneuvers in the Baltic that began on June 5, in which Sweden and Finland will take full part for the first time.


In total, the aforementioned exercises of the alliance, which will last until June 17, involve: 45 ships, 75 aircraft and more than 7 thousand military personnel from 16 countries of the world. Tellingly, the maneuvers called Baltops have been held by NATO for 40 years, but for the first time they will be attended by Sweden and Finland, which have already applied to join the alliance.

It is worth noting that despite the supposedly defensive orientation of the exercises, they are not. The purpose of the maneuvers is to "strangle" Russia in the region. Among the goals of the maneuvers is not excluded the development of the capture of the island of Gogland in the Gulf of Finland, which is the main obstacle to the passage of enemy forces to Kronstadt and St. Petersburg.

Recall that Russian soldiers fought for this island for centuries. With the Swedes, Finns, British and Germans. At the moment, there are located there: a station for monitoring territorial waters, 5 helipads, a command and control tower, a weather station, a refueling complex and a maintenance point.

Undoubtedly, Russia is aware of what goals NATO is pursuing by conducting these exercises. Therefore, we do not sit idly by. Following the development of the aforementioned attack on conditional targets, the RF Armed Forces began exercises to identify and destroy enemy submarines in the Baltic Sea.

    Russia adequately responded to NATO exercises in the Baltic Sea

    A worthy answer is a worthy answer to the Hegemon, who unleashed a hybrid war against Russia.

    More than a dozen Su-24s and Su-27s of the Baltic Fleet, under the cover of fighters, attacked targets imitating landing ships.

    In total, the aforementioned exercises of the alliance, which will last until June 17, involve: 45 ships, 75 aircraft and more than 7 thousand military personnel from 16 countries of the world.

    It is rather the observance of external propriety, as well as the government's response to the Russian population, which expects real action from it.
    Our actions so far do NOT affect our main enemy.
    On the contrary.
    CBO in Ukraine is carried out by us in line with the interests of the United States, loading it with the military-industrial complex. The reserves placed in the currency of the States are "safely" stolen by them. Payment of half a billion dollars on the national debt sent to the thief. Obligations under contracts with him are proactively fulfilled.
    I think that all this is happening in the interests of our large oligarchic capital, which plays by the rules of the Hegemon and does not want to turn the game table over

    it is also interesting to watch how Russia demonstrates its attitude towards NATO. Resonant messages have recently been heard, such as a proposal to withdraw the recognition of Lithuanian independence, the collection of lands in the north, reminders of Istria in Poland and various comments by Medvedev.

    At first glance, such "signals" reinforce the arguments of those who claim that Russia is a threat, that NATO's eastern flank needs to be strengthened, NATO needs to be joined, NATO needs to be funded, and so on. It would seem, why would Russia give such arguments to Russophobes in the West? Why confirm the image of a threat?

    The answer (as far as one can judge as an observer) can be simple - Russia assesses its military capabilities and NATO capabilities (NATO readiness for war, the readiness of Western societies to escalate relations with Russia, NATO military capabilities) in such a way that it can afford to demonstrate readiness for escalation . Not just to demonstrate, but even to spin her own image as a threat to NATO - "let's escalate a little, it's even getting interesting", which has two possible consequences. NATO joins the game and themes such moments as the Baltics, Kaliningrad, Finland (Arctic), Transnistria, Poland and begins to strengthen these regions. Either the fear of the development of such dynamics in relations (of some countries in NATO or even of the entire bloc as a whole) will force NATO to drastically change its rhetoric towards Russia and curtail military assistance to Ukraine.

    NATO's readiness for escalation looks very doubtful at the moment. The fact that Turkey "blocked" Sweden's accession to NATO looks extremely suspicious. There is a feeling that the entry of these countries into NATO is no longer very desirable for NATO itself. Moreover, these countries themselves do not seem to mind the "difficulties" that prevent them from joining NATO. Finland says that without Sweden it will not join, as if with relief, perceiving the blockade of the Swedes by the Turks. It is even possible that the Turetian demarche itself was agreed with the United States and NATO in general.

    During the NWO, Russia demonstrated its capabilities. At the same time, we do not know all aspects of this demonstration, especially in military-technical issues, such as air defense, electronic warfare, communications, command and control and the overall combat capability of the RF Armed Forces. Russian calibers, daggers and zircons were born just in time.

    The strength of NATO, NATO's readiness for combat operations with such an adversary as Russia is a big question today. Russia demonstrates this through provocations in public diplomacy. Now the question remains how to end the NWO, so that it would not be a total defeat for the West. It looks like it doesn't. Russia will end the NWO on those borders that it considers acceptable to itself.
