Russia has vowed that they “will act” should Ukraine or Georgia join NATO. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu voiced his concern over what he described as the “militarization of the European continent,” by promising action instead of empty rhetoric.
This statement by Shoigu appears to be a sign of the country’s unease in the wake of President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out the United States out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). Speaking during a meeting with Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos, Shoigu said: “We are following with alarm NATO’s policy aimed at the active militarization of the European continent. We see efforts being made to involve more and more NATO member countries, I mean the Balkans first of all.”
According to the Express UK, Andrei Kelin, director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s European cooperation department, made his remarks during an expert discussion NATO’s Future and Russia’s Interests on the platform of the discussion club Valdai.
“We will have to create a defense belt near Sochi,” said Kelin. “We will have to spend colossal resources on preventing likely actions by a hypothetical enemy, this is inevitable.” Kelin also cautioned Ukraine against joining NATO saying that action would have equally serious military and economic repercussions for his country. “The length of our common border is enormous. It is utterly unequipped, so we will have to build defense lines there and to shift the emphasis of our defense structures towards the south.” Kelin did concede, however, that it was unlikely either nation would join NATO.
“But if our western partners proceed along the road of building up confrontation, this may happen, of course, and we will have to make fundamental preparations,” Kelin added.
Russia launched a large-scale land, air and sea invasion in 2008, accusing Georgia of aggression against Russian separatists in the South Ossetia region.
Since this conflict, Vladimir Putin’s regime has occupied both South Ossetia and neighbouring Abkhazia.
In 2014, Russian forces annexed the Ukrainian region of Crimea, rapidly incorporating it into the Russian Federation.
Meanwhile the Kremlin today said Russian President Vladimir Putin was keen to discuss US plans to exit the INF treaty with Donald Trump when the two meet in Paris on November 11. -Exxpress UK
Russia has also been ramping up their military might and divesting from the U.S. dollar among rising tensions with Washington.
This story to be followed by stories advising the USA war industrial complex to increase trillions more in spending.
BIS is going to fall way short worldwide on the creation of 17 trillion additional dollars to be printed out of thin air because the immigration/invasion will cease in 2019, hence no new growth in paying for the invaders and their entitlement money. This money needs to be created in order to keep the world’s GDP at 2% growth, without the increasing of new debt creation, the world economy collapses on deflationary debt sprial. So they need to resurrect the age old Russian boogerman. It is like someone in Switzerland is writing these stories on behalf of the BIS Rothschilds.
We have an invading army on our own borders and these fool idiots can’t or won’t see it. There is a war going on, right here at home and all our own feckless and dysfunctional government, along with the so-called “baby killers” (the American Military Industrial Complex), want to do is continue doing the same old same old. If they bankrupt the country then they won’t have to do what a country is supposed to do — defend their own borders first.
Oh no, not yet another red line.
Everyone wants a buffer zone “Monroe Doctrine” of their very own.
You do not know what the “Monroe Doctrine” was. Read your history.
“The Monroe Doctrine was a U.S. foreign policy regarding European countries in 1823. It stated that further efforts by European nations to colonize land or interfere with states in North or South America would be viewed as acts of aggression, requiring U.S. intervention.”
What we are seeing now is South American nations attempting (and succeeding), to colonize North America (the United States and Canada). Our own government is so inept, corrupt, illegal, and dysfunctional that is can’t or won’t recognize acts of aggression being carried out right in front of it.
You can kiss goodbye to Western Civilization. The West is Dead.
I can’t wait until the Russians sell S400 Missiles to Cuba.
Then pass out the Popcorn.
S-400? Try S-600.
Those things can detect a flea taking off from your neighbors dog.
“You do not know what the “Monroe Doctrine” was. Read your history.”
Don’t know my history? GTFOOH
The US wanted no European powers meddling close to its shores stopping potential threats at its inception. Russia would like something similar regarding the US. They want a buffer zone of less potentially hostile neighbors. The Monroe Doctrine Analogy applies. China uses NK in that role and wants the South China Sea too; hence everyone wants a Monroe Doctrine of their very own.
To insinuate that I’m not reasonably historically knowledgeable is condescending.
Oh thought this might be in order
a comparison between two things, typically for the purpose of explanation or clarification:
“an analogy between the workings of nature and those of human societies”
Where does Russia get off telling other countries what then can and can not join?
If Russia did not have nukes they would be a third world country we would ignore
Weather you like it or not it’s all in motion so prepare yourself.
There can be little doubt that there is a SATANIC ENTITY squatting in Washington DC… a “Being” that ALL poitical classes are beholden to… whose anus they slaver over.
This BEAST has the Hexagram emblazoned on its forehead and is INTENT upon WORLD DOMINATION via WORLD WAR… with Europe a “Sacrificial Burnt Offering” – a REAL Holocaust – to its Demented “God”
The US government is the aggressor worldwide. It’s the Globalist government not ours. Hey, how come we don’t here anything about “our” wars in Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and Afghanistan lately? What do we have now, 800 military bases worldwide? Imagine the money we could use for healthcare and real education.
I believe Russia has two outside of Russia and they’re “the aggressors”.
Two time Medal Of Honor recipient USMC Major General Smedly Butler summed it up.
“I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.”
Really, its water off a ducks back syndrome. Any of the nuclear powers know if one starts ww3 there will be no return. Nether Trump or Putin or any other power has what it takes to end all life on the planet. Its my conker is bigger and better than yours, no mine is smaller faster and harder than yours. Prove it, no you prove, no you prove it on repeat. Dont worry though if it happens it will be over in a flash.
