Aim of NATO’s exercise: prepare for the annexation of Russia’s Kaliningrad region

Summary

The Anaconda 2018 scenario will repeat similar military games held in the past with the only difference being the number of servicemen deployed will reach well over a 100,000 drawn from 24 NATO countries and five partner nations. The stated goal is an attempt to prepare for the annexation of Russia’s Kaliningrad region!”

No NATO member state, aside from the US, Poland and a number of Baltic states believes that Russia, the largest country on the planet, would ever attempt a land grab in Europe, as this would be illogical.

Disproof

The article contains typical Kremlin disinformation talking points and repeats earlier disinformation about Kaliningrad. In reality, Anaconda-18 exercise involves around 12,500 troops in Poland and approximately 5,000 troops in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The biggest NATO's exercise was Trident Juncture and it included 50 000 personnel. And as illogical as it may seem, Russia has occupied Crimea, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
