NATO countries conduct their own analysis of a surprise check of the combat readiness of Russian troops. At the same time, the emphasis is on, how militarily to resist the RF Armed Forces in a situation, in which Russia "can launch an offensive in Ukraine". Problems are voiced, which may be related to this for NATO itself.
In particular, Polish military command notes, that "Russia can act unpredictably". Points out, that the increase in the concentration of Russian troops on the Ukrainian borders "does not at all mean, that in the end Russia will send its army to Ukraine ". noted, that all this could be "and a red herring to strike in a completely different direction".
It should be noted, that Poland is once again considering the vulnerability of the so-called Suwalki corridor. This is the Polish-Lithuanian border between the Republic of Belarus and the Kaliningrad region of the Russian Federation.
Polish military experts believe, that “Russia could, that all the attention of the West will be focused on the Ukrainian direction, including the Black Sea, and at that moment the threat in the Baltic increased ", including the aforementioned Suwalki corridor. It should be noted, that in Poland and the Baltic states for many years they have been declaring about the "possibility" of Russia to gain control over the Polish-Lithuanian border.
Earlier in the Czech Republic, against the background of a political and diplomatic scandal with Russia, they also announced a "military threat". In particular, the country's Defense Ministry said about the need to strengthen the country's air defense.
The Baltic states also continue to voice their "horror stories" about Russia and the Russian army, which in any maneuvers of the Russian army - from Kaliningrad to the Kuriles - sees a danger for itself.
Now NATO countries are trying to count, "How many soldiers and military equipment Russia will leave on its western borders after the end of the surprise check".
