Renewed Provocations Against Russia? Bundeswehr is Upscaling Military Operations in Eastern Europe

This week, Federal Defense Ministry announced, that in the course of this year the German Armed Forces will attend maneuvers and training missions in Eastern Europe by deploying 5,500 soldiers, signifying an increase of 500 when compared with the preceding year.

According to the television channel N-TV, the largest exercise will take place in Poland:

“The most extensive exercise, named “Anaconda”, will take place in Poland in June, performed by approximately 25,000 NATO soldiers from army and air force, 400 of whom Germans. In the same month the Navy will conduct war games in the Baltic Sea. Around 4000 soldiers are taking an active part in “Baltops”, including 800 from the Bundeswehr.”

Likewise, the number of military exercises, undertaken by NATO member states of Eastern Europe, has increased from 16 to 21.

Independent military experts rate this as the advancing geopolitical and military encirclement of Russia by NATO.

In this context the occurrence of large war games in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) and Bremen, which became known to the public just last week, is also worth mentioning:

“Soldiers from the Bundeswehr and numerous other armies of NATO- and EU- member states countries have started with large scale troop regrouping exercises in Niedersachsen and Bremen. This was announced by a spokesman of the command center of armed forces in Garlstedt. For the army it is one of the largest of such maneuvers since decades…” writes “Die Welt”, the German national newspaper.

    Most of the military outfits in western Europe are ineffectual. If they were mobilising 3 million men l would be concerned.

      @ Nexusfast123,

      You’re definitely on to something there…

    Will these idiots get a grip on themselves and seek honest cooperation with Russia with acknowledgement of her legitimate interests near her borders? Don’t they have more pressing issues to deal with? Do we have to forever listen to paranoia of Polish and NATO ministers about the “Russian threat”? It’s pathetic

      This will NOT stop as it is a part of their plan to carve Mother Rossia up, hence the shameless lies and open undermining of piece and security in Europe, Middle East and now in Asia as well. I am afraid it will get far worse (just look at who is going to “govern” USA next 4 years).

    5,500 troops. India is mobilizing 30,000 + tanks & air craft along Pak border with Rajputana.

    This is literally nothing but they are building up the infrastructure to make it somehing 5 years from now.

    When their own E/W capability will be ready..

    How strong are they though?
