What Would a NATO-Russia War Really Look Like?

Monday, September 20, 2021

Here’s What You Need To Know: Russia would need to size its invasion force to not only beat the local NATO forces in the Baltics but to fight the entire alliance and defeat a counter-attack. How would a war between Russia and NATO in the Baltics play out? Chances of a Russian invasion of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia appear fairly remote. Even the RAND Corporation, which has been particularly hawkish,…

By Dominykas Urbonas on Monday, September 20, 2021

Lithuanian authorities are taking away the last money from the population of the republic to sponsor NATO. Militarization of the Baltic States is now underway.

By Antanas Tubelis on Friday, September 17, 2021

NATO is building up its offensive capabilities year after year. The intensity and scale of NATO exercises in the Baltic States permanently increase. At the same time, areas of the exercises are closer and closer to eastern borders. Actions of troops during NATO exercises quite often are similar to offensive.

Could Russia Defeat NATO in Baltics?

Monday, September 6, 2021

The RAND wargame suggests that Russia could take the Baltics, and perhaps hold them, for a while. Moscow would begin to pay costs very early in any conflict, however, as NATO forces moved against Kaliningrad, Transnistria and other Russian holdings. A recent RAND wargame on a potential Russian offensive into the Baltics brought talk of a “new Cold War” into sharp focus. The game made clear that NATO would struggle to prevent Russian forces from occupying the Baltics if it relied on the…

Washington is strengthening its interference in European affairs. The intensity and scale of NATO exercises in the Baltic States increase every year. Even the COVID-19 pandemic cannot prevent this. NATO is an organization created to promote and protect U.S. geopolitical interests in Europe. The United States are most interested in the existence of NATO and play determinative role in the bloc. The United States has created a myth about “Russian…

Highway to Europe

By Antanas Tubelis on Friday, August 27, 2021

Since the breakdown of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact, NATO has absorbed Eastern Europe.

Military tensions are rising in line with an accelerating breakdown of diplomatic relations. NATO is the driving force behind the rising wave of war, as Washington’s…

Europe must free itself from NATO

By Antanas Tubelis on Wednesday, July 28, 2021

NATO is an useless obsolete organisation of cold war, totaly inefficient. It is time to remove the U.S. troops from Europe. European states should build their own defense. NATO is an organization that is needed primarily by the United States, not Europe. America needs NATO to keep Europe under its control. Moreover, the United States also has a financial benefit. The U.S. carries a disproportionately large share of the financial…
