What does the USA want to prove with the teachings of Defender20

Aggressor in the shoes of a defender

As the Defender Europe 2020 military exercises draw near, an information campaign is under way in the West to justify them. The countries participating in the global action have already begun arrangements for the transfer of armed forces and military equipment to Russian borders.

In particular, on February 3, the first ship with the logistic units of the British Armed Forces arrived in the Belgian port of Antwerp, designed to ensure the further deployment of the NATO group. In late February, American troops are expected to arrive in Europe with their subsequent dispatch to the Baltic states and Poland.

Against this background, some senior officials, including the NATO bloc, continue to publicly declare the harmlessness of the Defender 2020 exercises and their extremely defensive nature of actions. On February 3, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with the French publication AFP said that the goal of the massive deployment of US forces in Europe is not Russia at all.

However, the statements of the Norwegian official have nothing to do with reality and are deliberate deceit, or rather, hypocrisy, which has become the hallmark of the West for at least several decades.Despite the fact that, at the official level, the “Defender” is not connected with a specific country, the geographical connection of maneuvers to the Baltic states and Poland gives every reason to believe that not only defensive, but also offensive actions of about 37 thousand military personnel out of 18 will be worked out NATO countries and block partners. That is how many military men will concentrate on 10 training grounds of Poland and the Baltic states, which border, including the Kaliningrad region.

However, including in the West, there is an opinion that large-scale US exercises in Europe are a pre-planned action. As you know, this year from February to May in Lithuania and Latvia will be held celebrations dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the restoration of independence from the Soviet Union. Estonians will celebrate the 29th anniversary of the acquisition of state sovereignty from the USSR.

In addition, do not forget that 2020 in Russia was declared the year of memory and glory in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. It is possible that with the help of Defender in the West they are trying to overshadow the anniversary celebrations dedicated to the victory of the USSR, and at the same time denigrate the decisive contribution of Soviet soldiers to the defeat of Nazi troops and the liberation of Europe. Say, at present, the role of the defender is assigned to the United States, which is entitled to transfer an unprecedented number of its troops to European territory.

Therefore, it is important that, when covering Defender Europe 2020, in the West, after 75 years, they remember the lessons stories and accidentally did not overestimate the capabilities of the United States and its Baltic allies in Europe.

Thank you for this interesting article. This could be entirely true:

“In addition, do not forget that 2020 in Russia was declared the year of memory and glory in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. It is possible that with the help of Defender in the West they are trying to overshadow the anniversary celebrations dedicated to the victory of the USSR, and at the same time denigrate the decisive contribution of Soviet soldiers to the defeat of Nazi troops and the liberation of Europe.”
