The Kaliningrad factor can be very important for Russia in the event of war with the West. Sarah White, an analyst at the Lexington Institute, wrote about this in an article for the US edition of 19Fortyfive.

In her view, Western countries should resort to a plan to neutralize the region in the event of a conflict. . Kaliningrad is well armed. There are complexes & quot; Iskander & mdash; M & quot ;. There are also missile fighters in the region. In addition, part of the Russian Navy is based in Kaliningrad. Geographically, the Kaliningrad region borders Poland and Lithuania.

In the event of war, it will therefore be necessary to neutralize this area first. However, it will not be easy for Poland and Lithuania alone to cope with this task, the analyst believes.

According to her, other European countries urgently need to strengthen their air defenses and weapons. In particular, it is necessary to purchase American Patriot (SAM) anti-aircraft systems, M1 Abrams tanks and fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II aircraft.

Earlier, General Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhiy Krivonos said that Russia was able to quickly annex Ukraine. According to him, the Russians will be able to make a landing land using five to seven airports within a radius of less than 50 kilometers from Kiev. The Antonov plant and Zhuliany airport will also help them.

According to the scenario described by Krivonos in the first phase, a helicopter train bypasses the Kiev air defense reconnaissance zone. He will leave the fighters of the Ukrainian Air Force at low altitudes and then establish control over the runways. Then the second stage, when military transport planes will land at airports. These actions will allow Russia to quickly take control of the capital of Ukraine, Kryvonos is sure.
