vara bungas: US domnīca RAND – RU viss ir gatavs vai tiek gatavots karam D un R virzienā, bet NATO valstis tas neapdraud. Kāpēc?
[..] The military announced that it would establish ten new Ground Forces divisions by the end of 2018, a decision that appears to have been hastened by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the rising tensions with NATO, given the timing of the announcements and the locations of the new units. Eight of the ten new divisions are located in the
Western and Southern MDs and were created by merging or enhancing existing brigades. To command these units, Russia moved one CAA headquarters closer to the border of Ukraine and created two additional
CAA commands outside Moscow and in Kaliningrad. The geographic disposition of the new units is telling. With all but two of the new divisions located in the Western and Southern MDs, it is clear that Moscow views the Western strategic direction—in particular, Ukraine—as the most unstable. Furthermore, it appears that Russia believes divisions
would be needed in the case of a larger war with Ukraine. These divisions could also support operations against NATO forces in the Baltics,in the unlikely contingency of a Russia-NATO conflict. [..] (izcēlumi VB)
Iespējams tāpēc, ka šie papildspēki vai to daļa ir domāti, lai atturētu Rietumus no iejaukšanās, gadījumā, ja UA atkal “izprovocēs RU”. 3B paliek kā šaha figūras, kuras oponents apdraud, bet neuzbrūk, jo šo stāvokli izmanto kombinācijā citā šaha dēļa stūrī. Tas tikai līdz brīdim kamēr grosmeisteri saglabā kontroli par spēli.
