Dienas grauds

[..] With regard to cyber security, we must keep reminding ourselves that the best weapon against cyber threats is intelligence and critical minds that do not yield to provocation, deception and confusion. The only sustainable solution for the future is promoting critical thinking, improving analytical skills and raising media literacy. This is just as important as the continued efforts of the state to ensure its national security. We cannot depend on our allies and Article 5 alone; we need to be able to defend ourselves in cyberspace just the same as at our national borders. [..]

vara bungas: Visnotaļ pareizo citātu  izmantoju kā āķi, lai pievērstu uzmanību Somijas Turku universitātes sastādītam rakstu krājumam par Baltijas jūras reģionālo sadarbību, t.sk., ekonomikas un drošības jomā. Brīžiem interesanti, bet pamācoši katrā gadījumā.

Īpaši vēršu uzmanību uz rezerves  rez.plkvežltn. Uģa Romānova rakstu par Igaunijas salām:

[.. ] A list below illustrates military assets, capabilities and security infrastructure which could be deployed or developed to achieve the desired deterrence effect, and prepare the Baltic States and NATO better for the worst case scenario:

•Mobile sea and air surveillance assets and other sensor systems to establish extended situational awareness, monitor maritime communication lines and enable target acquisition;

• Extension of the capabilities of the existing airfield on Saaremaa Island which would allow deployment of aircraft to the war zone for combat, service support missions and search and rescuetasks in peace and wartime;

•Defensive counter air assets to conduct air surveillance, protect deployed troops, equipment and infrastructure, and set preconditions for establishment of favourable air situation/air superiority;

•Other A2/AD assets, such as anti-ship artillery and missiles;

•Development of the existing naval base to enable logistic operations and maintenance for NATO vessels operating in the region;

• Boosting capabilities to land forces on the islands. The size andcomposition of the land forces on the island should be based on the task to protect the infrastructure and equipment, and counter airborne and SOF operation. [..]

VB: Līdz šim esam daudz runājuši par Gotlandes aizsardzības problēmu, kas izskatās, ka ir izprasta un tiks atrisināta,  bet  tie paši problēmjautājumi  ir attiecināmi  uz Igaunijas arhipelāga salām, kuram jāpievērš ne mazāku uzmanību.  Šādi turpinot loģisko domu drīz nonāksim  pie LV piekrastes aizsardzības nepieciešamības izpratnes.

[..] Overall, while NATO policies have moved in the right direction in a traditional military sense, and while further efforts are needed, political influence operations, whether on political decision-makers or on the broader public, constitute a grave security challenge to the Alliance as well [..]

  1. Vairākkārt esmu šeit komentāros norādījis uz Monzunda arhipelāga stratēģisko nozīmi. Krieviem to ieņemt būtu daudz vieglāk nekā Gotlandi un potenciāli A2/AD efekts tas pats, jo tur var daudz ātrāk un efektīvāk izvietot pretgaisa un pretkuģu raķetes.

    • arī zemessargs

      Monzunds tomēr malā atrodas. Gotlande vairāk pa vidu.

      • Jā, bet ja mērķis ir izolēt Baltijas valstis nevis nosegt pēc iespējas plašāku Baltijas jūras telpu, tad Monzunds ir daudz izdevīgāks, jo no Gotlandes tomēr nevar aizsniegt Tallinas-Helsinku koridoru, bet no Monzunda var. Tāpat no Monzunda var noklāt visu LV un LT piekrasti, turklāt neuzbrūkot neitrālajai Zviedrijai. Apgādes līnijas uz Monzundu arī tuvākas. Daudz plusu. Atliek ieņemt Marijampoli un Sāremā un visa Baltija ir izolēta.
