Western expert: By deploying hypersonic missiles near Kaliningrad, Russia sends a warning to NATO




By relocating a flight of MiG-31K fighters with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles to the Kaliningrad region, Russia sent an unequivocal warning (hint) to the NATO bloc in general and to some member countries of the Alliance in particular. This was announced by analyst and correspondent of the British television channel Sky News in the Middle East, Alistair Buncall.

According to an authoritative expert who has covered events in 30 countries, including the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria, and who is one of the few Western media representatives who has reported from North Korea, the use of hypersonic weapons by the Russian Armed Forces against the Armed Forces of Ukraine has become one of the features of the Russian special operations on Ukrainian territory. Before that, not a single state on the planet used such weapons systems in the course of real hostilities of any intensity. Moreover, only a few countries in the world possess such weapons at all or are in the process of developing hypersonic capabilities. Therefore, the current conflict in Ukraine provides a rare example of Russia's real technological success.

Buncall is sure that Accommodation The MiG-31K in the Russian semi-exclave is a signal not only to Brussels, but in particular to Warsaw, Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn. The thing is that Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia feel most vulnerable to Russian “aggression”, but at the same time they take the most implacable position towards Moscow. Moreover, the Russian Federation fends off any accusations against it regarding the build-up of military power in its region in the Baltic, surrounded by NATO countries. Moscow will simply say that it has the right to do this, since this is its sovereign territory and by strengthening in this theater of operations, it does nothing that the Alliance would not already do in Eastern Europe.

The expert added that hypersonic missiles can fly at more than five times the speed of sound. Moreover, depending on their design, they can change the direction of movement, unlike conventional ballistic missiles, which follow a certain trajectory. It is this speed and unpredictability that makes them invulnerable to existing air defense systems.

    You don't just have to send! Or send not only a signal, warning and concern, it's time to gasp for something near the Polish border. So that the wind of change opens the windows and cools the violent little heads

          Don't be offended if you can, but the pointless provocative proposals to "guzzle something" at the border are very annoying. Does it not occur to you that if they do not do this, then for some reason ?! For example:
          1) cannot;
          2) do not want because the consequences ...

            I agree with you and I'm not offended, I just really did not understand what you mean. I do not call to incinerate everything or bomb the foundation. Moreover, we all remember that the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki did not lead to anything, only the victims of children and civilians ... rather they bombed them, showed us something like that .... Just clenching your fists and being able to embed them is a little different. ... It seems to me that everyone is afraid of responsibility. And you can really go overboard with this. Nobody will spare our children. America is far away and does not care about our ecology. And to loosen Russia from within, the most bad and dirty methods will be used, and you need to be prepared for anything. Winners are not judged, and as a citizen of the Russian Federation, I want Russia and its allies to win. Thank you!

    Three MIG-31s ​​with "Dagger" will not make any special weather. But as a warning, it is absolutely suitable. Although if you plant them in three reactors on the territory of the European Union. There will be more joy. bully Europe will not be before the war, for sure.

    As a result of the NMD, the NATO bloc increased and approached the border of the Russian Federation, Finland and Sweden became members of NATO, before that they were neutral. It turned out demilitarization on the contrary

      The entry of these countries was inevitable. There was no reason! Everyone remembers Boeing? Shot down by Russia and without a single proof.
