“You know, we have an adversary here that we have to take very seriously.”
Relations between Russia and NATO remain tense amid increased NATO activity in Eastern Europe and on Russia’s borders that forces Moscow to adapt its military strategy to a new security situation.
In early July, NATO agreed to deploy four additional battalions to the Baltic States and Poland on its summit in Warsaw. This buildup was a “direct” response to “Russian actions in Ukraine,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on July 13.
The Alliance has significantly increased its activity on Russia’s doorstep by holding massive drills on its borders. NATO also continues to build an anti-missile defense system in Europe.
Moscow deems these moves “are superfluous, counterproductive, they are confrontational, essentially weakening pan-European and regional security while bringing us back to the safety models of the Cold War era,” as the Russian Envoy to NATO Alexander Grushko, put it at the last meeting of the Russia-NATO Council on July 13.
Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu recently announced that a task force was being created along Russia’s borders with Europe to counterbalance NATO’s massive military buildup there."
The NATO perpetual warmongers are finally waking up to Russian's ultimate prowess as a warrior. Had they been reading their history books they would have already known that. Russia guards the largest unexploited land mass in the world (Siberia) and they know the Satanic forces of the underworld (aka the "usual suspects") covet it and will not stop until they get it and destroy Russia as an independent nation.
