NATO’s approach gets on Russia’s nerves

Date: 26/09/2020 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

NATO’s military moves against Russia are getting more threatening.

NATO is hell-bent on the militarization in the waters of the Black Sea and is developing the military infrastructure of East European allies. Airports, naval bases, ports, roads and railways are upgraded. Installations for the stationing of troops and storehouses for weapons and technical equipment are being built.

NATO is continuing to deploy the missile defence system around Russia.

And the number of flights of NATO reconnaissance planes near the Russian borders has increased by 30 percent as against last year. The reconnaissance flight numbered 87 in August last year, but it reached about 120 in the same month this year.

Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu revealed this in an interview with Russia’s 24-hour TV channel on September 6, adding that such a flight was made once in a while in the past without assuming the periodic nature as it is today, and that most of the flights were aimed at reconnaissance, but now military drills in simulation of missile attack are waged regularly involving many war planes.

It should be remembered that such military activities are conducted on the occasion of domestic or international events in Russia.

In May, Russia celebrated the victory in the Great Patriotic War. Timed to coincide with the event, a flotilla of warships belonging to NATO’s combined naval forces was deployed in the waters of the Barents Sea for the first time since the end of the Cold War, including three deep-sea destroyers performing the duty of missile defence.

During the recent international military technology forum “Army-2020” and the international military games in Russia, NATO organized a large-scale combined air drill. Involved in the drill were more than 50 fighter jets including a strategic bomber B-52. Most of the flights were made near the Russian airspace.

In the wake of staging a marine operational exercise in the Baltic Sea in June under the cloak of “defence”, NATO began a three-day military drill in Latvia on June 29.

In July, warships and aircraft of NATO conducted the “Sea Breeze-2020” in the northwestern waters of the Black Sea.

Russia sees these military drills of NATO as provocative ones aimed at the country.

Because the declarations for the summing up of all NATO summits, which have been held since 2014, defined Russia as the major threat to the security of NATO member nations, and the Western media continuously spearhead the large-scale anti-Russia propaganda campaign.

Anti-Russia remarks from NATO’s high-ranking officials and the attempts to obliterate the exploits performed by the Soviet people, who defeated Nazism and concluded the Second World War, are getting on Russia’s nerves more seriously.
