The Russians Are Coming: NATO's Frontier Russia's Little Green Men Enter 1 day ago   17:46

In the wake of events in Ukraine, NATO has turned its attention towards countries that border the Russian Federation — attempting to boost its quick-response capabilities in Europe. In September, the alliance agreed to create a 5,000-strong rapid reaction Spearhead Force, which will be capable of deploying across the continent within 48-hours of a military incursion. VICE News joined several thousand NATO troops in western Poland, for the first deployment test of the "Very High Readiness Joint Task Force."

According to the premise of the exercise, Poland and the Baltics were under threat from the fictional state of “Bothnia” — a master of conventional and hybrid warfare. NATO forces had been ordered to deploy, and quickly, to Poland.

During the deployment test, NATO’s top diplomat Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg flew in to watch its progress. He told VICE News that NATO was undertaking “the biggest reinforcement of our collective defense since the end of the Cold War.”

While in Poland, VICE News filmed with non-governmental paramilitary groups, which are training young Polish people to defend their towns and cities in the event of a foreign-backed assault. Participation in paramilitaries has reportedly increased since Russia’s seizure of the Crimean Peninsula.

We also traveled north, to visit the border that Poland shares with the heavily armed Russian territory of Kaliningrad. This spring, Poland built six high-tech watchtowers along the 125-mile border.

NATO is not a Country but a united organisation of nations.Russia,is a country and what they have done in Ukraine and Creamea should be a lesson to countries connecting Russia's borders.

June 22, 1941, exactly at 4 a.m. without declaring war, fascist Germany, along with the rest of Europe which was captured by Germany attacked the Soviet Union. The result, the complete defeat of Nazi Germany. Then in 1945, Russia was weakened by the civil war and revolution, but still Hitler got in the teeth. You thought well? It seems to me that the population of Western countries do not really trust what they show

Yo i would chone her haha!!
to me NATO looks just like another Modern Nazi Germany! Who fears having Russia being strong again, so why not instead be friends with Russia they arm against it? Are they itching for an Apacalypse? Its obvious America is pushing NATO against Russia. Also it's funny how Slavic European Nations are turning against their Russian Slav brothers and instead theyre joining a Facist like NATO force. Wise Kings lived in harmony with other Kings to avoid unnecessary War! Now days we have unwise Kings who are only itching for War well the war they'll get and not just war a doomsday war! WE TALKING HYPERSONIC NUKES HERE, this is not 1945 anymore the world will be doomed from these kind of weapons! also what does EU, NATO have anything to do with Ukraine? Ukraine wants to be an Independent Country, no matter how different Ukraine is to Russia both come from same Slavic Kiev Rus Land. EU wants to sucks Ukraine in as part of Europe because Ukraine is an Economical asset to them and they don't want Ukraine to be allies with Russia, the illuminati wants to Divide and Conquer strong Nations so they wont have a rival, anyways the point is they want to make New World Order(Unite all Nations into 1 World Order) and who ever is against it is against NWO and is an enemy and must be dealt with, and the countries who is standing against globalism is Russia, Iran, China, Serbia, and many other Nations. This is why we got this fear mongering going on against Russia, China, Iran demonizing them as bad guys, but sadly this is how things has to be according to the Bible so nothing is gonna get any better things are just going to escalate into another possible World War and the coming of NWO and a Global Leader(False Messiah-Antichrist) also now the word Terrorist is currently used against any Country who doesnt allow to be divided and conquered and sounds like coming NWO propoganda. Also don't forget how many Countries U.S.A has crippled and annexed and nobody stopped them in the name of Democracy, how many military bases U.S had across the globe? why EU and other Countries didnt worry about that? Now Russia feels totally surrounded by EU,U.S.A,NATO and you expect Russia to be OK with that LOL ?

Russia has invaded the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine and taken over its civilian and military infrastructure. Not a shot has been fired so far, but Russia is using its superior force to intimidate Ukrainian troops in an attempt to get them to surrender.

Russia claims it wants to stabilize the situation on the peninsula, which has a large Russian population, but Ukraine's new government regards the move as an occupation of its sovereign territory.
