The publication reminds that in the beginning of June in Poland began teaching, joined the American, British and Polish military. They landed in the center of the country to fulfill actions in the event of war with Russia.

However, the leadership of the Alliance is unlikely to take into account that in terms of this war, this contingent would have been a deadly trap — the landing area is in a zone of action is located in the Kaliningrad region and missiles that easily can bring down landing aircraft such as the C-17. On the ground troops will become easy prey for Russian drones and long-range artillery.

The author of the article noted that the Alliance in the framework of the exercise was to provide a land corridor in Lithuania for the American Stryker APC class. In reality, all the military equipment would be sandwiched between the Russian military in Kaliningrad region and the Federal Moscow Belarus.

The newspaper also refers to the report of the research center RAND. Military analysts concluded that in such circumstances, NATO forces would be unable even to retreat and would have been destroyed on the spot.

The publication reminds that another weak point of the Alliance is the language barrier and cultural differences between military personnel from different countries.

Today in Poland starts on the NATO summit, the results of which will decide on the placement of several battalions of the Alliance in this country, as well as in the Baltic republics.
