THIS IS WHY IN A WAR WITH RUSSIA NATO SHOULD FIRST SEIZE KALININGRAD ENCLAVE #WARTHOGDEFENSE
Relations between Moscow and the West have escalated in recent years to a record high since &# 171; cold war&# 187;
Russia is building up its forces in the Kaliningrad region and has already formed a full-fledged motorized rifle division, including a tank regiment, Commander of the Baltic Fleet, Admiral Alexander Nosatov, said on Monday, explaining this step by the need to respond to the strengthening of NATO’s presence in the region..
The Baltic Fleet is based in the Kaliningrad region, located on the shores of the Baltic Sea between Lithuania and Poland..
In an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper, Nosatov said the build-up was a response to NATO’s actions. According to him, the alliance pulled an armored vehicle and several tactical groups into the region..
“In response to this threat, the leadership of the Armed Forces is forced to take retaliatory measures. One of them was the formation of a full-fledged motorized rifle division, which became part of the army corps of the Baltic Fleet, he said.. – The new formation includes motorized rifle, artillery and separate tank regiments “.
According to Nosatov, 30 T-72B3M tanks, a patrol ship armed with cruise missiles and Su-30SM fighters entered service with the motorized rifle formation, the number of which has not been specified. Additional weapons should arrive next year.
A recently released NATO strategic report notes that Russia regularly conducts “intimidating military operations in close proximity to NATO member countries” and threatens their security.
Relations between the West and Russia have escalated in recent years to a record level since the Cold War. A variety of factors contributed to this, from the annexation of Crimea to controversy over Syria and accusations of meddling in American elections..
Recall that, referring to the relationship between the United States and the Russian Federation, US Undersecretary of State Stephen Bigan recently noted that these relations “today are in a very stable, but negative state – so far with little room for improvement.”.
Among the factors that could help improve US-Russian relations, Bigan cited the need for Russia to stop “some very dangerous or worrisome political moves and actions that we have seen in recent years.”.
