... really wants to "close" Baltic Sea for Russia's Baltic Fleet.
Tallinn and Helsinki have discussed integration of coastal missile batteries that would enable the two NATO members to blockade the Russian Navy in the Gulf of Finland, Estonia’s defense minister announced on Friday. This would turn the Baltic Sea into a “NATO internal sea,” the official said, echoing comments made earlier by Polish and Lithuanian leaders. “We need to integrate our coastal defenses. The flight range of Estonian and Finnish missiles is greater than the width of the Gulf of Finland,” Estonian Defense Minister Hanno Pevkur told the Finnish newspaper Iltalehti. Finland’s MTO85M coastal missiles have a range of over 100 kilometers. The Gulf is about 82 kilometers across from Helsinki to Tallinn. Estonia plans to buy Israeli Blue Spear missiles later this year, which have a range of almost 300 kilometers.
These statements are not surprising for people who went through NATO military "education" and who do not understand that the war is the most democratic procedure and that the enemy has a say too. The enemy being Russia, of course. We should start immediately with the fact of Pevkur being a lawyer, but also with this:
So, if Estonia wishes to experience something like this, which is a Solntsepyok delivery:
Soldiers from a U.S. air assault division that arrived in Europe in late July are being sent to NATO members in eastern Europe to help protect the military alliance's eastern flank, the U.S. Mission to NATO announced Thursday, as Russia fuels concerns that its war could widen beyond Ukraine. The mission said that nearly 2,400 soldiers would be sent to NATO members Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia to "reassure our Allies, and deter our adversaries."
Kremlin is in panic, wink, wink. Meanwhile Peskov stated (in Russian) that plant in Ukraine for producing TB-2 Bayraktar UAVs, if completed will be demilitarized. As you may have guessed it, it could be demilitarized from any direction and from any distance. The fact Estonian Defense Minister evidently cannot grasp.
