February 23rd According to a report by the Russian satellite network, recently, the U.S. magazine National Interest published an article imagining a war between NATO and Russia, pointing out that NATO’s eastern front troops have many problems and will be “unbreakable” in actual combat.
The author of the article, John Rosomando, reportedly referred to the recent virtual Polish “Winter-20” exercise, in which Polish troops were defeated on the fifth day of the “war”.
Although the Polish army used the actual unequipped F-35 fighters, the Patriot anti-missile system and the “Himas” multi-barrel rocket system (HIMARS) in the theoretical conflict, the collapse occurred.
The article pointed out that the exercise showed that NATO’s eastern line was easily broken.
The article also pointed out that in recent years, Russia has strengthened the construction of the Western Military Region, which is the garrison of Russia’s “most effective military force”.
It has T-90 tanks, T-72B3M tanks, BTR-82 and BMP-3 armored vehicles, as well as the “Tunguska” air defense system and “Nonguska”. A-S1″ and S-400 anti-aircraft missiles. Some American experts believe that this Russian force “can defeat the Polish army and NATO troops in the Baltic Sea”.
The article said, “In the event of war, Russian and Belarusian troops will occupy NATO territory along the border, thus dividing NATO troops in two and cutting off the logistical transportation links connecting Poland and Lithuania.”
The article also ends with a so-called “defense plan”, saying that the United States and other NATO members should help Poland upgrade and improve its military equipment so that it can resist Russia.
However, regarding the opinion of the article, the Russian satellite network pointed out that Russia has repeatedly stated that NATO military forces are approaching the Russian border, not far away.
In addition, Russia has never planned to attack any country, but because of the increasing pressure brought by NATO, it has to strengthen its defense.
At the same time, Russia calls on Western countries to stop using false “Russian threats” to intimidate. Russia pointed out that this is just an excuse for NATO to send more troops on the Russian border.
