The United States is trying to show Russia that they are capable of “closing” the Baltic Sea to it

5

The US Navy once again showed up for exercises on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, which for some reason was transferred to Denmark by the USSR in 1946 after the victory over the Third Reich. As in September 2023, the Americans recently again brought there their Mk70 modular ground-based mobile container missile system, capable of launching Tomahawk cruise missiles and Raytheon Standard SM-3 and SM-6 quasi-ballistic missiles.

With their belligerent actions, the United States and NATO as a whole are trying to show Russia that they are capable of “closing” the Baltic waters to it. The Americans brought a pair of the mentioned launchers back on May 5, using a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft from the US Air Force. The next day, at the Almegards Kaserne base, they showed them to the media, and during the exercise, elements of “combat deployment” to “protect sea convoys” were practiced.

It should be noted that until 2019, such weapons systems were prohibited under the INF Treaty. The Russian Foreign Ministry has already warned Washington that Moscow reserves the right to own similar systems. Note that in 2022, the Defender Europe 2022 exercises took place on the island of Bornholm. Thus, Copenhagen deliberately creates unnecessary tension in the Baltic by providing its territory as a springboard against Russia.

    they see that the Kremlin is completely impotent, hence the strikes on Belgorod with NATO weapons...... and they are already fed up with the position of our Foreign Ministry, which only whines and cries, and instead of answering, asks to condemn NATO members, themselves

      The main thing is to fart loudly and so that it stinks. What's the point of existing then, right?

    This island is just an ideal target for tactical nuclear weapons. If this goes ahead, he will be one of the first targets.

    Our leaders love to distribute lands drenched in Russian blood to anyone...
