Danish Air Force threatened Russia with aircraft transfer to Greenland

The Danish Ministry of Defense has threatened Russia. The military department announced its readiness to transfer combat aircraft to Greenland if Russian aviation, located on the Franz Josef Land archipelago, violates the sovereign border of the island, which is the territory of the kingdom.

Until recently, in making foreign policy decisions, we proceeded from the fact that the Arctic is a peaceful region without tension. However, today Russia creates opportunities for offensive operations there, referring to the Nagursky airfield. On it, Moscow plans to deploy dozens of combat aircraft, as well as refueling aircraft, thanks to which the Russians will be able to strike at the American airbase of Tula in Greenland

- said Danish Minister of Defense Klaus Jort Frederiksen.

He warned that if Russian aviation begins to violate the airspace of the island, Copenhagen will be forced to deploy fighters there on an ongoing basis.

At the same time, the ministry noted that currently the Danish Armed Forces are not able to hide the facts of violation of their airspace by foreign aircraft, since the island lacks the necessary military infrastructure.

    Very well! Let them fork out for that too! We need to poke their faces where they just lag behind, and not let them poke ourselves ... Let them now deal with the Arctic, there we are much ahead, let them compete, spend money ... Otherwise they thought that we would only be in Kaliningrad deploy hundreds of anti-missiles to nullify the strike capabilities of their missile defense in Europe ...
    An excellent course both in the Arctic and along the Northern Sea Route! Keep it up! You need to gouge them asymmetrically!
