In the United States, a military expert assessed the likelihood of NATO seizing the Kaliningrad region of Russia.
US military expert Sebastian Roblin analyzed the course and consequences of a possible military conflict between Russia and NATO.
In an article for the 19FortyFive portal, the expert argues that Russian missiles launched from the Kaliningrad region in the event of a conflict may represent “a painful thorn in the side of the alliance.” In this case, the cause of a probable conflict may be the Baltic countries.
In the event of a war with NATO, Russian-installed missiles near Kaliningrad could threaten the movement of armies and naval forces through Lithuania and Poland. Also, the troops of the alliance can be threatened by radars located in the Western region of Russia, which can receive important intelligence.
NATO may be forced to resort to “siege and physical occupation” of the region to eliminate the danger, reports RIA Novosti.
The Western media regularly publish articles about the likely seizure of the Kaliningrad region by NATO. The head of the region, Anton Alikhanov, emphasized that Russia does not pursue an aggressive policy, and urged Western colleagues to stop developing a war strategy.
