Direction - Suwalki corridor: the Belarusian army built a crossing across the Neman River


On December 13, a sudden check of the combat readiness of the troops started in Belarus. In particular, the units of the Belarusian army were ordered to quickly transfer manpower and machinery to certain areas, to carry out engineering equipment for positions on the ground, to organize security and defense there, and also to build bridge crossings across the Neman and Berezina rivers.


It should be noted that by finding water barriers, it is easy to understand the directions in which the Belarusian military could operate. For example, the Neman River is the western part of Belarus, adjacent to the Suwalki corridor between Poland and Lithuania. In turn, the Berezina River is the right tributary of the Dnieper, located in the east of Belarus near the borders of Russia and Ukraine.

The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Belarus informed the public that on December 14, despite the bad weather, the personnel of the pontoon-bridge battalion of the 557th ZOK engineering brigade built a bridge across the Neman River. Immediately after that, units of one of the most titled Belarusian formations, the 11th Separate Guards Mechanized Brigade, proceeded through it to the opposite bank.


We remind you that in November 1812 there was a battle on the Berezina between the Russian and French armies. Then Napoleon I Bonaparte tried to withdraw the remnants of his "Great Army" from Russia. The bloody crossing on this river left a deep imprint in the minds of the French, who still use the word "Berezina" as a metaphor for complete failure or catastrophe.

    The Suwalki corridor is not possible due to the entry of Lithuania and Poland into NATO and Article 5 of NATO, on the general protection of attacked participants. Today, the main NWO in Ukraine, that's where the crossings are needed.

      The Suwalki corridor will be necessary only in case of aggression against Kaliningrad. Article 5 of NATO will no longer play any role in this case.

        Just because it will be needed doesn't mean it will be...
        given that there is an enemy on both sides of it, it will be under constant fire ...
        and given the presence of highmars, this is up to 300 km on each side
        there the distance from Belarus to Kaliningradskaya is 70 km in a straight line - they will close it easily ...

      The borders of the USSR (Russia) are defined by the Helsinki Accords of 1975. In the 1990s, a coup d'état took place. coup is a criminal offense that has no statute of limitations. All former Soviet republics of the USSR are not legitimate, not legal, because they are members of the state. coup. Joining any military-political union of the former Soviet republics of the USSR cannot change the status of ownership of these territories by Russia. Article 5 of NATO does not apply to the former Soviet republics of the USSR. Article 5 of NATO, it was a scarecrow for the ignorant. The whole trouble with Russia is that the government does not want to give a legal assessment of the events of the 90s; She is a participant in this crime.
      The withdrawal of a union republic from the USSR was possible only with a positive decision received at the USSR Referendum and the implementation of the USSR Law of April 3, 1990 No. 1409-I “On the procedure for resolving issues related to the exit of a union republic from the USSR”.
      The USSR Constitution of 1977 was adopted by all the peoples of the USSR, and only the entire people of the USSR could give permission for the republics to leave the USSR.
      The exit of the republics without a nationwide referendum in the USSR and the failure to comply with the law of April 3, 1990 No. 1409-I is a criminal offense that has no statute of limitations.

    "Suwalkovsky corridor" is a myth! There are forests and swamps. And we need ROADS!!! So, in order to break through from Belarus to the Kaliningrad region, you need to take cities through which normal roads go, and not cut through a mythical corridor.

      Roads can be built. The railway will still have to be built from scratch.

    "We can repeat" (stupidity or betrayal) is it like after NG, as Tinkov succinctly noted as soon as the ice breaks?

    PS Just cities and "decision-making centers" are not going to take

    Dozens of such crossings on the NWO were destroyed on both sides.
