Russia Has Reasons To Fear NATO & Thus Building Latest Weapons Like Armata Tanks, Missiles: Analyst

Published

on

The Russians have good reason to fear a possible NATO invasion – historical experience gained over the centuries supports the argument and that why Moscow is constantly upgrading its defensive capabilities with state of art weapons like Armata Tanks, Hypersonic Missiles etc.

US Sends Stern Message To China; Deploys 3 Aircraft Carriers In South China Sea

This analysis was made by American publicist Peter Suchiu, who penned his opinion for the National Interest. In his view, Russia’s anxieties can be easily understood, because over the past centuries the country has been attacked by Germany, Sweden, Poland, France and even the United States.

The author writes that the US also took part in ‘invasion’ when US soldiers deployed to Russia during the nation’s Civil War in 1918. The US military intervention at Archangel, Russia earning the nickname “Polar Bear Expedition” and it was meant to check the German advance and to help reopen the Eastern Front following Communist Russia’s acceptance of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Instead of challenging the Germans, the US soldiers ended-up battling the Bolshevik forces.

Suchiu notes the naivety of US citizens, who for the most part consider NATO’s threat to Russia a contrived one, while Moscow has always taken the NATO threat very seriously. The author highlights that the fears of the Russians are further aggravated by the fact that their country became more vulnerable after the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The reason for the growing fears of the Russians was that many of the nations that supported the communist regime are now members of NATO including Poland, Hungary, Romania, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

In addition, even those countries that used to be part of the USSR joined NATO. Therefore, it is hardly worth wondering that the Russian military is constantly conducting exercises, as well as developing new military equipment.

Thus, it is not surprising that the Russian bear would be sharpening its claws – by enhancing its naval capabilities and holding frequent military drills, while also developing latest state of art military hardware such as with its T-14 Armata tank and its hypersonic undersea missiles

The author concludes by writing that such state of art military hardware could be seen not for their offensive capabilities, but rather as deterrents to ensure that Russia does not face yet another invasion from the west.
