Since March 2004, the states of the West have been carrying out the so-called “Baltic Air Patrol”, in which all nuclear Western powers participate every day. The United States, Great Britain, France are involved in this event. This information was reported to the journalist of the news publication Ukraina.ru by military expert Volodymyr Kozin.
The specialist in world armaments specified that even before the start of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine, the United States of America, Norway, Romania and Belgium increased the number of their combat aircraft in this air “patrol”. Aircraft for these daily raids are stationed at three military bases in the Baltic States – Emari (Estonia), Lielvarde (Latvia) and Siauliai (Lithuania). One of these warplanes of heavy strategic aircraft B-53N, belonging to the United States, carried out training bombing at a distance of 60 kilometers from the borders of the Kaliningrad region.
“The NATO military bloc has 50 kiloton aerial bombs. This power is 3 times more than the Hiroshima bomb. There are both 100 and 500 kilotons. Why on earth does the West suddenly declare that the Russian Federation is supposedly ready to use tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of Ukraine? Everything is very simple – to divert suspicion from yourself. This is also a bad sign, ”said Kozin.
It is not known whether the “patrol” planes carry nuclear weapons or not. The topic of tactical nuclear weapons has never been discussed at the negotiating table by either the United States or the Russian Federation. Therefore, Western countries have a free hand in connection with the fact that they want to deploy medium-range nuclear missiles again in Europe, the expert stressed.
Earlier, the media reported that the Russian Solntsepek systems opened the way to Odessa for the Russian Armed Forces.
