So take it up with the Yanks. You are flying down OUR coastline. 

It is international waters actually. Open for everybody. I think you are enjoying last years of China, Iran etc. solar-powered drones flying along your coast 24\7\365 in circles, just for monitoring sake.

 

 

Thats right, so what makes your airspace any different from ours? You dont like people doing it to you, dont do it to anyone else, thats the lesson for today. Or is the Black Sea somehow more hallowed than the North Sea?

 

Personally I think the Americans are behaving incredibly recklessly, and all I can say is, God bless them for it.

 

It is not Russia where foreign ships and planes passing by in international waters create month-long media hysteria and high-ranked speakers breathing out fire :) We are used to foreign powers testing our borders and waters (not some "area of interest" but actual border). It was the case in Soviet time (see video below of Soviet patrol ship pushing away US cruiser out Sov territorial waters near Sevastopol) and is the case now.

Russia's military has shown off its strength in an explosive live-fire drill featuring tanks, mines and rifle-wielding troops.

The large deployment of personnel - including engineers and sappers from the Russian Navy's Baltic Fleet - detonated huge bombs during a mock beach landing at the Khmelyovka training ground in Kaliningrad. 

The firing range, in a Russian province conquered during the Second World War that borders Nato states Poland and Lithuania, has been used for similar war games in the past.

 

Among the sophisticated technology on display yesterday was a UR-77 Meteorit mine clearing system, which was tested out alongside mines buried in the sand.  

Also on show were specialist troops with handheld mine-detection equipment and soldiers armed with assault rifles.

It comes just days after the commander of the Estonian Defence Forces claimed Russia simulated a 'large-scale military attack against Nato' during war games in September.

To me it looks like "the most Kaliningrad(ish) city", there's nothing about proximity or popularity. Or am I wrong?

 

No, it is just common form used by tourists. You could google for “Самый русский город Египта\Турции\Греции» (most Russian city of Egypt\Turkey\Greece) and see what you will get. It is the same verbal construction but “Russian” replaced by “Kaliningradish” since for tourists from Russian mainland, unlike Kaliningrad, Polish resorts are not attractive for simple geographic reasons.

 

Ah, didn't know that.

 

As for the last part, sure, it's the same with Polish tourists actually. Our resorts are not only less attractive* 'geographically' than those by the Med, they're also more expensive and crowded af.

 

*I speak generally, not for myself. For me going anywhere just to lie on the beach and/or consume all inclusive stuff in the hotel is the most boring thing I can imagine. Also, I prefer places with few/no people, I hate crowded places. Maybe because I hate people in general, don't know. :D

 

Rus business channel interview with car owner. She say Polish officials (?) suspect attack was done not by Poles, but by “citizens of another state, unfriendly to Russia, who are now massively present in Poland” https://www.bfm.ru/news/375181

The Army has intensified the training soldiers receive on the FIM-92 Stinger — a man-portable, air defense missile — after nearly 15 years of moving away from the weapon system.

The Stinger has been around since the late 1970s, according to the Army. As counterinsurgency became the Army’s primary mission focus, however, training drifted away from the shoulder-fired surface-to-air missile.

“Bringing back the Stinger addresses a self-identified gap that the Army created and has recognized,” said Lt. Col. Aaron Felter, the director of training and doctrine for the Air Defense Integrated Office. “We’re getting back to the basics and providing short-range air defense to maneuver units.”

The shift back to the Stinger is based on the Army chief of staff’s initiative to close the gap in short-range air defense capabilities the United States and its NATO allies suffer from on the European continent, according to the Army.

 

These SHORAD systems will be focused on defending against low-flying aircraft, such as drones and attack helicopters, which present a considerable threat to maneuvering forces, according to a memo by Brig. Gen. Randall McIntire, commandant of the U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery School.

“The continuing Russo-Ukrainian conflict has seen a transformation of the Russian military and the need for short-range air defense with our maneuver forces,” McIntire wrote. Unmanned aircraft “have become increasingly common and important to operations by both sides in the Russo-Ukrainian conflict.”

 

To close the gap, roughly 50 soon-to-be trainers attended their own training session on the Stinger system at the Hohenfels Training Area in Germany on Jan. 10. The area hosts a Joint Multinational Readiness Center for training NATO forces.

“The immediate focus is Europe and getting Europe ready to fight tonight and defend Europe against any adversary,” Felter said.

Just to level up with the other thread. Say, wouldnt a thread merge be a good idea?

Not quite sure about what French troops are meant for Estonia. I was rather under the impression they were already there. And if they were in fact moving to Lithuania, would it not make sense to actually send the troops there instead? Very strange.
