The most probable directions of a NATO attack against Russia can be estimated by the activity level of the alliance, said Corresponding Member of the Academy of Military Sciences of Russia Aleksandr Bartosh on December 1 in his comment for the Rossa Primavera News Agency.
He noted that the high number of reconnaissance flights near Russia’s borders can be indicative of the preparation for war. The probable directions of attacks “can be estimated from NATO activity in a number of regions,” Bartosh said.
Among those, he mentioned, the Black Sea region and Russia’s western borders with the NATO countries. Also, the alliance is markedly active in the Baltic Sea and in the Baltic States, where army groups build up.
According to Bartosh, Russia in response should increase the vigilance and readiness of its units.
“All types of reconnaissance are used, and the situation is hopefully under control of the top political and military authorities,” the expert stressed.
As the Rossa Primavera News Agency reported, on November 30 the Russian Foreign Ministry reported more than 50 reconnaissance missions of NATO aircraft at the Russian borders weekly. Also, strategic bombers that can carry nuclear weapons fly near Russia.
