The staff made fun of the “duck” of the capture by Russia of the Baltic States for 60 hours

Russian media spread the news that Deputy assistant Secretary of defense Michael carpenter allegedly admitted the possibility of Russia to occupy the Baltic States for 60 hours, has caused bewilderment of the Russian General staff, and soon got its refutation.

Recall that a similar statement was contained in the report of the research Corporation RAND, and it’s the media and gave the opinion of the carpenter. In reality, the Republican Senator from Colorado Cory Gardner just asked him whether he agrees with the assertion that Russian troops can go to Riga and Tallinn for 60 hours.

In response, the carpenter has not confirmed the opinion of RAND, saying that “Russia has superiority in time and distance” and the United States in this regard needs to solve a number of problems for the defense of allies”. The Pentagon has left from the direct answer to the question about 60 hours, but noted that “the position is continuously strengthened”, and by the end of 2017 on the Eastern edge of NATO will be deployed one armored group.

The source of “Komsomolskaya Pravda” in the Russian General staff and refused to accept payments RAND seriously.

He expressed bewilderment, “why do we have to meddle in the Baltic States — for sprats?” The “instigators-analysts from the RAND”, in his opinion, greatly underestimated the potential of the Russian army, even insulting her own calculations: “To perform the tasks and hours will be enough,” said the source.
