A rapid Russian build-up of tanks and troops with tough talk from President Vladimir Putin raises fears war with Ukraine could be imminent

Russia is mobilizing for war and may be poised for a springtime invasion of Ukraine’s mainland, after stealing Crimea in less than three weeks.

Tens of thousands of Russian troops and military hardware, including artillery, tanks, warplanes and helicopters are amassing and carrying out war games on all sides of Ukraine.

High concentrations have been spotted in Russia’s Klimovo in the north and Russia’s Belgorod in the northeast, in Russian-annexed Crimea in the south and in Moldova’s breakaway Transnistria region in the southwest, as well as sizable groups carrying out military exercises in Belarus in the north.

As a spring invasion of mainland Ukraine looms large, Yevhen Marchuk, a retired Ukrainian general and former defense minister, warned on March 27 that the crisis is intensifying, saying that Russia has now moved to the “second phase” of its plan “to eliminate” Ukraine as a nation.

“There are many signs of an imminent attack,” he told journalists at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center. “Now it is in fact war time.”

Estimates of Russian troops on war footing vary, from the West’s estimates of more than 30,000 to the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council’s calculations of 100,000 soldiers ready to strike.

There are, in addition, 700 tanks and armed personnel carriers staging near the eastern border, according to Dmitry Tymchuk, head of the Center for Military and Political Research in Kyiv. He added there are 240 warplanes and helicopters, 150 artillery systems of various calibers, and 100 units of multiple rocket launcher systems.

In Transnistria, Tymchuk noted, there are 2,000 Russian boots on the ground, of whom 800 are commandoes.

But presidential chief of staff Serhiy Pashynsky said at a briefing that “no activity of Russian troop mobilization” has been spotted near Ukraine’s borders for two days now.

Still, experts noted that the battle-ready force is capable of cutting Ukraine off from the sea with a westward thrust, chopping perhaps a quarter of Ukraine’s territory into Moldova.

Russian President Vladimir Putin hinted at a plan to do this in his March 18 speech at the Kremlin, during which he spoke of righting historical wrongs, specifically calling out the loss of those regions of Ukraine.

“After the (1917) Revolution, the Bolsheviks… included into the Ukrainian Soviet Republic significant territories of southern Russia. This was done without taking into consideration the national composition of residents, and today its modern southeast of Ukraine,” Putin said.

Taking advantage of Ukraine’s weakened and ill-prepared military, he seized Crimea with barely a shot fired, unconventionally taking the Black Sea peninsula in a flash and catching Ukraine and the world flat-footed. Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said that half of its 18,000 troops there have switched allegiance to Russia, while Tymchuk said it was “much less.”

And yet, with all that is known, Putin could still catch Ukraine and the West unprepared again if Russian troops should storm the mainland, experts say.

Experts talk of scope of invasion

The Russian forces amassing at the Ukrainian border are “very, very sizable and very, very ready,” U.S. Air Force General Philip Breedlove, NATO’s top commander, warned on March 23. “And that is very worrisome.”

The tens of thousands of Russian troops on Ukraine’s border, combined with others put on alert and mobilized, give Putin the ability to move quickly into Ukraine without the U.S. being able to predict when it happens, CNN reported top level American officials as saying.

Moreover, a classified U.S. intelligence assessment obtained by the news agency shows that a Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine is more likely than previously thought. Two administration officials with whom CNN spoke emphasized that a Russian incursion is not certain, but pointed out several worrying signs in the past three to four days.

“This has shifted our thinking that the likelihood of a further Russian incursion is more probable than it was previously thought to be,” CNN quoted one of the U.S. officials as saying.

Ukrainian soldiers listen to a commander speak at a military base in southern Kherson Oblast, mere kilometers from the entrance to the Russian-occupied Crimean peninsula on March 25.

What mainland invasion could look like

If Russia does invade, it would do so with swift precision, military experts say.

Mark Galeotti, a New York University professor and post-Soviet security affairs expert who has researched security forces in Russia and Ukraine, said Russia’s aim would be “as quickly as possible to seize the bits of eastern Ukraine they need and want to hold. And then… to lock that down.”

“A classic Putin model is to change the ground and turn to the rest of the world and say ‘what are you going to do about it?’” he added.

What Russia would do first, Galeotti explained, is “completely disrupt Ukrainian political and military communications systems.”

“We would probably see missile and air raids on military bases, bridges, transportation routes throughout the country… as much as anything else, to slow down Kyiv’s ability to muster and use all its forces,” he said. “The Russians almost certainly have positioned some special elements in eastern Ukraine. Plus, they have allies and sympathizers. So probably they would be able to seize the airports in places like Donetsk. And what they would do is bring in paratroopers very quickly. Paratroopers are great at seizing things very quickly.”

Breedlove said that in a series of military maneuvers on the Ukrainian border, the VDV corps of Russian paratroopers and the air force already have been preparing to spearhead a possible push deep into Ukraine. The armed paratroopers have been training to take over “enemy airfields and airports as bridgeheads of an overall advance,” he said, adding that such a thrust would be closely followed by the tank and motorized army brigades that have been training and mobilizing along the Ukrainian border.

The Russian Defense Ministry has denied it is preparing to invade Ukraine.

Admiral Ihor Kabanenko, a former first deputy chief of Ukraine’s armed forces, claims that a special operation is now being conducted in Ukraine to “destabilize the situation in a technological way” by duly formed and motivated groups, acting by means of bribery and blackmail.

Russia’s so-called fifth column, including extremist groups, is on Ukraine soil, he said, and working systematically and at various levels to create a pretext for Russia to invade.

Marchuk, said that he doesn’t rule out proxies – as in Crimea – first trying to seize key administrative buildings and infrastructure in eastern cities leading up to the invasion.

Ukraine’s security forces and border guards have caught on, though. Three operations jointly conducted by the Border Guard Service and Interior Ministry have since March 4 denied more than 8,200 Russians entry into Ukraine as of March 25. National Security and Defense Council Secretary Andriy Parubiy stated on March 27 that between 500 to 700 Russians are now being denied entry daily.

Additionally, the nation’s television and radio regulator has stopped broadcast of four Russian TV channels. “Would you allow the enemy to broadcast its propaganda on your territory?” stated Oleksiy Melnyk, director of foreign relations and international security programs at Razumkov Center.

Russia has protested the measure on freedom of speech grounds. Pro-Russian authorities in Crimea several weeks ago abruptly switched off almost all Ukrainian TV channels and replaced them with channels originating from the Russia.

Yevgeny Marchuk, former prime minister, defense minister, army general, and secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, holds a press briefing at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center in Kyiv on March 27.

Putin’s end game

Putin’s ultimate goal is to install a pro-Kremlin government in Kyiv, experts say.

He tried doing this in the four years of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych’s rule, observed Marchuk, but failed, “and the EuroMaidan squelched his plan altogether.”

What he has succeeded through Russian spies, said Melnyk, is to weaken Ukraine’s defense and security capabilities. He pointed to ex-security service chief Oleksandr Yakimenko and ex-Defense Minister Dmytro Salamatin, who are residing in Moscow and giving interviews to Russian television channels.

“Whether by use of force or through other tactics, Putin’s main goal is to install his own pro-Russian, very cooperative government in power,” said Melnyk.

Putin’s war crimes

Putin’s entire Crimean operation committed an array of brazenly illegal acts and, some would argue, war crimes. Among them, Russia violated the 1994 Budapest Agreement it signed to guarantee Ukraine’s security and territorial integrity, as well as the 1997 Black Sea basing agreement of troop size and movements.

Chief among its transgressions was the violation of the United Nations Charter and 1975 Helsinki Final Act. They include respect for the rights in inherent sovereignty, refraining from the threat or use of force, territorial integrity of states, non-intervention in internal affairs, among others.

Reports of torture and inhuman treatment have been cited in Crimea. Whole scale plundering of state and private property has begun.

Massive military mobilization along Ukraine’s borders itself, says Tymchuk, “is an act of war.”

More heinous, in the view of many, is Putin’s hiding of his troops’ identities and even his denial of their presence, as well as his use of women and children as human shields during the storming of Ukrainian bases, all in violation of Geneva conventions on acceptable warfare.

Ukraine’s readiness

But should Russia invade the mainland, Ukraine is prepared, according to Marchuk. “A Russian assault on Ukraine would not be done as fast as they suppose,” he said.

Although Kyiv has refrained from declaring a state of war, it has started to mobilize its military and tighten security at its borders. Aside from denying many Russians entry and blacking out four Russian TV channels, it has been forming a national guard of 20,000.

More needs to be done, said Melnyk, starting with spreading out fighter jets and preparing for a partisan war by training units and setting up a network to distribute its vast cache of small arms.

Still, Ukraine’s military, hollowed out by years of corruption and mismanagement, would not be a match for Russia’s, which by all accounts has amassed its best units and hardware around Ukraine’s boundaries.

Ukraine is already at war

Melnyk of the Razumkov Center think tank says there are plenty of reasons to argue that Ukraine is at war. At least four or five actions performed by the Russian Federation perfectly fit in the definition of “armed aggression” stated in Ukraine’s “law on defense,” he said.

“From the military point of view, the current situation in Ukraine is classified as a war, despite no armed fight back from our side,” said Kabanenko on March 26. “The government has to admit this fact and give up its actual strategy of non-provoking, act in a decisive and tough manner following a new counter-strategy.”

A number of facts exist to justify a state of war declaration, he explained. Numerous Russian troops are concentrated near Ukraine’s border, and elite “attack groups” are operating in Crimea. In particular, Uragan multiple rocket launch ers, as well as SU-24 frontline bombers are concentrated there.

“That is offensive power (not for defense). Its range of action covers the whole territory of Ukraine. We are also aware that the Russian Federation has prepared an airborne component to conduct a deep-penetrating airborne operations 500 kilometers and more deep (into Ukraine),” Kabanenko said.

Selling arms to the enemy

Media reports in mid-March said that despite Russia’s aggression, Ukraine’s vast industrial military complex is still selling products to it, one of its top clients. According to Dzerkalo Tyzhnia, two military production plants on March 13 shipped radar and guidance instruments for Russian tanks and aircraft. A factory in Zaporizhya in the south makes all the engines for Russia’s Mi-8, Mi-26, and Mi-35 helicopters, for example.

Ukraine’s new National Guard trains on March 17 at an Interior Ministry base in Novi Petrivtsi near Kyiv.

State-owned UkrOboronProm, which consolidates a number of multi-disciplinary enterprises in the defense industry, didn’t respond to a Kyiv Post inquiry on whether it is still fulfilling Russian orders. Likewise, Ukrspetseksport, the state-owned arms trading company, failed to respond to the Kyiv Post’s request for comments.

If Ukraine is still carrying out Russian orders, it should stop, said Valeriy Chaliy, deputy general director of Kyiv-based Razumkov Center.

“If Ukraine wants support from the West, it must act by example and stop selling arms to Russia and implement these measures,” he said.

This week, Germany led the way by announcing it was suspending military trade with Russia, its leading supplier of weapons. France has yet to make the move. Meanwhile in Canada, New Democratic Party Foreign Relations critic Paul Dewear said it makes no sense to impose political sanctions while continuing to sell weapons and military equipment to Russia. Canada sells military electronics, aircraft parts and spare parts for communications equipment to the Russians.

Thursday, March 27, 2014 16:43

(Before It's News)

Nine more mid-level nuclear commanders in the United States Air Force have been fired according to this newly released story from The Guardian. In moves that are said to be tied to a much wider exam-cheating scandal, is there much more to these moves than we are being told? With Barack Obama worrying about a nuclear device going off in Manhatten, is this more set up for a nuke false flag? Video reports also below.

The US air force fired nine mid-level nuclear commanders Thursday and will discipline dozens of junior officers at a nuclear missile base in response to an exam-cheating scandal that spanned a far longer period than originally reported.

Air force officials called the moves unprecedented in the history of the intercontinental ballistic missile force, which has been rocked by a string of security lapses over the past year, including a failed safety and security inspection last summer at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, where the cheating happened.

Air Force secretary Deborah Lee James, the service’s top civilian official, had promised to hold officers at Malmstrom accountable once the cheating investigation was completed and the scope of the scandal was clear. None of the nine fired commanders was directly involved in the cheating, but each was determined to have failed in his or her leadership responsibilities.

On Thursday, 10,000 Russian troops began a drill simulating the massive use of nuclear missiles.

By Zachary Keck

March 29, 2014

While much Western attention has been bestowed on Russia’s military buildup near Ukraine, Moscow also began a MASSIVE NUCLEAR OFFENSIVE EXERCISE on Thursday.

According to the Russian daily Nezavisimaya Gazeta, on Thursday Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces began a massive three-day exercise involving 10,000 soldiers and 1,000 pieces of equipment from more than 30 units. The major purpose of the drill, according to the report—which cites multiple senior Russian military officers—is to ensure Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces have sufficient readiness to conduct offensive operations involving the massive and simultaneous use of nuclear missiles.

Global Security Newswire previously carried a story on the nuclear exercise, also citing the Nezavisimaya Gazeta article. GSN described the exercise as “as practice for a large-scale nuclear offensive.” It added: “Exercise participants were set to position and prepare missile-firing units for launch, and to practice various administrative and support functions for the operation

As Russia’s conventional military capabilities have deteriorated following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Moscow has become increasingly reliant on operationalizing its nuclear arsenal. This has been reflected in successive Russian security documents. For example, Russia’s 1997 national security concept stated that Russia would use its nuclear arsenal “in case of a threat to the existence of the Russian Federation,” whether that threat came in the form of nuclear weapons or from a conventionally superior military power.

This threshold was further lowered in Russia’s 2000 military doctrine, which was the first released during Vladimir Putin’s presidency. This document said that Russia would use nuclear weapons “in response to large-scale aggression utilizing conventional weapons in situations critical to the national security of the Russian Federation.” This held out the possibility that Russia would use nuclear weapons even if Russia proper hadn’t been attacked. The same doctrine further noted that Russia reserved the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of any kind of weapons of mass destruction against it.

Shortly before reassuming the Russian presidency for a third term, Putin reaffirmed the importance he placed on Russia’s nuclear forces in a number of articles and speeches. For example, in an op-ed article in Foreign Policy magazine, Putin wrote: “We will, under no circumstances, surrender our strategic deterrent capability. Indeed, we will strengthen it.”

Thus, this week’s massive offensive nuclear drill is in line with the goals that Russia and Putin have been articulating for well over a decade. It is also consistent with Putin’s recent emphasis on conducting more frequent and sophisticated military drills to improve the combat readiness of Russian military forces. Indeed, Russia conducted a much smaller surprise nuclear drill in October of last year.

Still, the timing of the drill is likely to cause great concern in Western capitals, particularly in Washington. The drill could very well be intended to signal Russia’s resolve over events in Ukraine where Russia has been at loggerheads with the West and the government in Kiev over Moscow’s annexation of Crimea. A very visible reminder of Russia’s substantial nuclear capabilities would make sense for Moscow in a number of different contingencies, including if Russia is intending to move forces deeper into eastern Ukraine, as many currently fear.

For what it’s worth, the Nezavisimaya Gazeta article said there was no connection between the current nuclear exercise and the crisis in Ukraine. As evidence of this, it pointed out that in December of last year the commander of Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces had said that his forces would conduct a large and complicated exercise sometime during 2014. From this, the Russian daily concluded that the drill had been planned for weeks and was completely unrelated to the tensions of Ukraine.

At the same time, it ended the article by noting that testing the readiness of Russia’s strategic forces was especially important in light of the “current reality of the world situation.”

Le reportage de Philippe Leblanc

La GRC envoie régulièrement ses agents dans les mosquées et les écoles musulmanes du pays; non pas pour espionner les fidèles, effectuer des descentes ou des arrestations, mais plutôt pour tisser des liens amicaux avec une communauté qui pourrait aider à prévenir un prochain attentat terroriste. = Des liens amicaux, bien sûr. Nous verrons un peu plus loin l'agenda réel. Juste vous dire qu'en Ontario et à Toronto, l'islam radical a fait des pas de géants, ces dernières années. Voici un autre grand pas que la GRC est en train de mettre en place, "pour le bien commun". Vous voyez donc que notre bon gouvernement conservateur via son Premier Ministre Stephen Harper ne fait pas appel au peuple de Dieu ni aux lois universelles pour protéger le pays, lui qui se vante d'être chrétien et de supporter Israël quoiqu'il arrive, mais envoie ses pions vers une communauté qui croit à un dieu de terreur, qui appelle à la haine partout dans le monde et qui tue et détruit partout où il passe. C'est ce qui se prépare pour le Canada pour très bientôt. Tout se met en place "step by step".

Un texte de Christian Noël

« Allah Ahkbar » : la prière du vendredi retentit dans un centre communautaire de Toronto, convertie en mosquée. Certains fidèles sont cependant distraits par une vision inhabituelle. Un agent de la GRC, tout sourire, vient de faire son entrée. Le sergent Dereck McDonald visite des dizaines de mosquées par année. = Allahu akbar signifie « Dieu est plus grand »

Après la prière, il distribue des poignées de mains et des cartes professionnelles. Il discute, de façon décontractée, avec les fidèles. Il essaie même quelques mots en arabe. Son « Salaam Aleikum » a besoin de plus de pratique, lui dit-on gentiment. Le sergent sourit : « C'est quand même pas mal pour un blanc anglophone, non? »

Derek McDonald

Humour, sourire, contact personnel : voilà la nouvelle puissance douce de la GRC pour lutter contre le terrorisme. « Nous avons besoin de leurs yeux et de leurs oreilles », dit le sergent McDonald. La communauté musulmane a une responsabilité de déceler ce qui ne tourne pas rond, et d'avertir les autorités, avant que les complots ne prennent forme. = Nous y voilà, une police jeunesse musulmane, style Jeunesse hithlérienne, qui deviendra les yeux et les oreilles du gouvernement. Continuons...

C'est d'ailleurs grâce à la vigilance d'un imam que l'attentat contre un train de Via Rail aurait été déjoué l'an dernier. « C'est plus qu'une opération de relations publiques. La menace est réelle », explique Doug Best, responsable des enquêtes sur la sécurité nationale à la GRC. = Oui, un iman, bien sûr, ceux-là même qui apprennent la haine des juifs et des chrétiens. Et si un vrai disciple de Jésus-Christ vous aurait averti, il aurait passé pour un débile mental et un conspirateur.

« Je ne suis pas là pour recruter des dénonciateurs, et en faire des agents de la GRC. Mon rôle est plutôt de dissiper le climat de méfiance envers les policiers, qui règne parfois dans ces communautés. » — Derek McDonald, sergent à la GRC = Ah non, le sergent Derek ne veut pas recruter des dénonciateurs, juste avoir des gens qui aideront à protéger le Canada des attentats terroristes!

Selon Doug Best, « ces contacts dans la communauté peuvent devenir un outil essentiel dans le genre d'enquête que nous menons. Nous n'avons pas le droit à l'erreur. Si nous ratons une opportunité, les résultats peuvent être catastrophiques. »

La méfiance persiste

Dans un restaurant de Toronto, plusieurs convives sont rassemblés autour d'un narguilé. La fumée tournoie et s'évapore autour de leur tête. Mais les doutes persistent quant aux véritables motifs de la GRC. Certains musulmans craignent une « nouvelle forme de profilage racial ou des mesures injustes envers les musulmans. » Ils craignent d'être perçus comme des traites s'ils parlent aux policiers. D'autres y voient du bon « tant que la GRC garde à coeur les meilleurs intérêts de la communauté ».

Ce n'est donc pas une surprise si les forces de l'ordre ont décidé de se tourner vers les plus jeunes dans les écoles de confessions musulmanes. Les policiers donnent des ateliers aux élèves. = Voyons de plus près, le genre d'ateliers donné aux élèves et dites-moi si cela ressemble bien à une opération charme ou plutôt à un stage de recrutement et de formation.

Opération charme de la GRC

Les jeunes jouent aux enquêteurs, avec empreintes digitales et descentes policières incluses. « Sortez du véhicule! Les mains en l'air! » lance un élève de l'école Junior Academy lors d'un jeu de rôle avec les policiers.

Ici, les agents de la GRC ne parlent pas de terrorisme. Le but, c'est d'avoir du plaisir et d'inspirer confiance. = Oui, certainement, s'amuser quoi! On est loin des parties de baseball et de soccer...

Des efforts qui semblent porter leurs fruits. « Avant j'avais peur des agents, dit une jeune fille. Maintenant, je comprends leur utilité ». Un des garçons va même plus loin, dit son père. « Il veut maintenant devenir un policier ». = Et voilà!

31 mars, 2014 Posté par Ender sous Actualité générale, Argent et politique, Géopolitique

Des mercenaires de la firme américaine Greystone Limited sont d’ores et déjà présents en Ukraine. Le Service National de Sécurité Ukrainien a annoncé que la firme allait se voir confier des missions de « police politique » et de « sécurité nationale ». Les milliards du FMI, qui se traduisent par un appauvrissement de la population via notamment le gel des pensions, le licenciement de 10% des fonctionnaires ou la hausse de 50% du prix du gaz, vont donc servir à payer des mercenaires étrangers du complexe militaro-industriel. L’avenir de l’Ukraine s’annonce bien sombre…


Les mouvements contestataires dans les régions de l’Est de l’Ukraine seront désormais réprimés par la société militaire privée Greystone Limited, a annoncé le Service national de sécurité (SBU).

Des mercenaires vont « remplir les fonctions de police politique et assurer la sécurité nationale ». Par ailleurs, Alexandre Mouzytchko, alias Sachko Bily (Sachko le Blanc), du mouvement Praviy sektor (Secteur droit) a été tué au cours d’une opération spéciale, a annoncé le ministère ukrainien de l’Intérieur.

Les militaires occidentaux aideront les autorités autoproclamées ukrainiennes à imposer aux régions de l’Est du pays leur vision de la démocratie et des valeurs européennes. Apparemment, le Service national de sécurité a compris qu’il était incapable de maîtriser la vague de mécontentement dans ces régions, et a décidé d’en charger la société militaire privée Greystone Limited, filiale de la compagnie Blackwater, dont la réputation scandaleuse – meurtres de civils et contrebande d’armes – l’a plusieurs fois obligée à changer de nom.

« Selon certaines informations, cette société qui auparavant s’appelait Blackwater, a déjà opéré en Ukraine. En principe, ces compagnies sont formées pour accomplir ce genre de missions. Elles se composent principalement d’anciens militaires ou de membres d’unités spéciales et sont prêtes à mener des actions militaires », explique Alexandre Makhaïlenko, professeur de l’Académie russe d’économie nationale.

Maintenant, les mercenaires américains qui ont pris part aux troubles sur le Maïdan à titre de « forces d’autodéfense », remplaceront officiellement les organisations de nationalistes ukrainiens comme Praviy sektor qui a réalisé le coup d’Etat. Apparemment, l’ancienne opposition a enfin entendu les appels qui lui étaient adressés au cours des affrontements meurtriers et a décidé de se détourner des radicaux. Mais à sa manière. La veille, Alexandre Mouzytchko (Sachko Bily) de Praviy sektor a été tué dans la ville de Rovno. C’était un personnage détestable, mondialement connu pour ses opinions radicales et sa passion pour les armes. Selon le ministère ukrainien de l’Intérieur, il a reçu été mortellement blessé au cours de son arrestation. Il était soupçonné d’avoir créé un groupe criminel organisé.

« Selon le plan initial, la force de frappe règle les questions de la prise du pouvoir, ensuite cette force est protégée. Du point de vue formel, le gouvernement ukrainien reste pro-occidental », précise Lev Korolkov, ancien combattant de l’unité spéciale Vympel, colonel du renseignement.
Il y a quelques jours, le groupe radical Praviy sektor a été officiellement enregistré comme parti politique. Les radicaux ont critiqué les nouvelles autorités, demandé la tenue d’élections parlementaires anticipées et proposé la candidature de leur leader Dmitri Iaroch, qui est accusé d’appels au terrorisme et à l’extrémisme, fait l’objet d’un mandat d’arrêt international lancé par le Comité d’enquête de Russie.

30 March 2014

(FINNBAY) – Karelia, 30 March 2014. The Russian military base near Karelian border started an air force drill this morning pulling several Russian jets to the region. The Finnish Karelian brigade is alarmed.

The drill was launched in Karelia (Russian side) 250 km east of Finland. Sources say, within 25 minutes, Russian air force jets and teams have arrived from four regions of Russia to the region.

The drills have continued to be conducted several times since the morning. “Strategic training for the Ladoga lake region is in session,” says an official from the Russian military.

The Finnish army has started a ’24/7 live-monitoring’ operation to watch the developments closely. The Finnish defence sources declined to comment further on this issue.

Similar operation was launched on Wednesday where Finnish residents from Imatra, Joensuu, Kuopio, Ilomantsi, Rantasalmi and Puumala reported emergency flares from the Russian border. The Finnish military headquarters declined to comment; however, Savo rescue services officials said, “Russian planes fired several shots during military drills near the eastern border.”

The Russian air force drill that launched this morning is also related to Russia’s 3-day nuclear war exercise involving some 10,000 soldiers to ensure Russia is prepared to conduct offensive operations in the event of an international use of nuclear weapons.

Currently more than 40,000 Russian troops are stationed on the Russian-Ukraine border. Vladimir Putin’s former chief economic adviser, Andrej Illarionov, has said the Russian President wishes to “reclaim” Belarus, the Baltic States and Finland.

British troops will take part in wargames in the Baltics in order to reassure Ukraine in the face of a potential Russian invasion, the Defence Secretary said today.

Philip Hammond said Britain would stand by its Nato allies as he warned Russia may attempt to seize more territory.

He said claims from senior generals that defence cuts had left the Armed Forces “hollowed out” are “nonsense”, and insisted withdrawing armoured regiments from Germany to bases in Britain would make them more effective.

Lord Dannatt, the former head of the Armed Forces, last week suggested 3,000 troops should remain in Germany in order to send a “military statement” to the Kremlin.

The Ministry of Defence has not yet announced which units, and in what numbers, would take part in the exercises.

La Corée du Nord a tiré des obus près de la frontière sud-coréenne, provoquant une riposte de son voisin. L'échange de tirs a semé la panique au sein de la population de deux îles situées à proximité des échanges de tirs.

La Corée du Nord aurait tiré quelque 500 obus en trois heures, dont une centaine dans les eaux sud-coréennes. « Des obus tirés par la Corée du Nord sont tombés de notre côté [de la frontière] et nous avons répliqué en ouvrant le feu » avec 300 obus, a déclaré un porte-parole de l'état-major des armées sud-coréennes.

Les habitants des îles sud-coréennes de Baengnyeong et Yeonpyeong ont pris la direction des abris. « Nous exhortons tous les habitants à se réfugier dans les abris sans délai, certains l'ont déjà fait », a ajouté le porte-parole. La Corée du Sud a fait décoller des chasseurs F-15 pour surveiller le secteur.

Les échanges de tirs sont intervenus en mer Jaune, près de la frontière maritime entre les deux pays. Cette zone est le théâtre d'accrochages meurtriers depuis plusieurs années, le dernier événement étant survenu en 2010 quand quatre Sud-Coréens ont péri dans le bombardement de leur île. Un bâtiment de la marine sud-coréenne avait également été coulé par la Corée du Nord au cours de cet épisode de tensions. Des dizaines de marins avaient été tués.

Tracée par l'ONU et les États-Unis en 1953, cette frontière a été baptisée « Ligne de limite nord ». La Corée du Nord refuse toutefois de la reconnaître, ce qui provoque des frictions dans la région.

Le porte-parole du ministère sud-coréen de la Défense, Wi Yong-Seop, estime que Pyongyang « a envoyé le message pour souligner que leurs intentions étaient hostiles ». « Leur but est de nous menacer, d'attiser les tensions sur la frontière en mer Jaune et sur la péninsule en général », poursuit-il.

Négociations et programme nucléaire
La Corée du Nord a averti son voisin méridional de tenir ses navires à distance de certaines zones maritimes en n'excluant pas la tenue d'un quatrième essai nucléaire « sous une nouvelle forme ». Il s'agirait d'une allusion à la mise au point d'une charge nucléaire sur une ogive. Les experts croient cependant que la Corée du Nord ne maîtrise pas encore l'expertise nécessaire à la fabrication d'une bombe atomique suffisamment petite pour être fixée à un missile.

La Corée du Nord a tenu des essais nucléaires en octobre 2006, mai 2009 et février 2013.

« Nous avons dit au Nord que nous répondrions avec vigueur par des tirs si des tirs atterrissaient de l'autre côté de la frontière », a mentionné le porte-parole de l'état-major des armées sud-coréennes.

Malgré ces échanges musclés, les spécialistes de la question n'y voient pas de motif d'inquiétude. Un expert des relations entre les deux Corées juge qu'il n'existe pas de « risque véritable d'une escalade ». « La Corée du Nord entend maintenir la pression sur la reprise du dialogue » dans le cadre des négociations à six - les deux Corées, la Russie, le Japon, la Chine et les États-Unis - sur l'arrêt de son programme nucléaire en échange d'une aide économique, explique le professeur d'études nord-coréennes à l'Université de Séoul, Yang Moo-Jin.

Le principal allié de la Corée du Nord, la Chine, a d'ailleurs appelé les deux parties à la « retenue ».

De son côté, la Russie craint les nouvelles tensions entre les deux Corées. « Nous nous inquiétons du durcissement du ton entre les deux pays, incluant la déclaration nord-coréenne indiquant que l'exercice pourrait déboucher sur un nouvel essai nucléaire », a déclaré le ministre des Affaires étrangères russe, Sergueï Lavrov.

La Russie critique au passage les États-Unis pour la tenue d'exercices militaires conjoints avec la Corée du Sud dans la région. Les exercices aggravent la situation, selon le gouvernement russe.

À Washington, un porte-parole de la Maison-Blanche a qualifié de « dangereux et provocants » les gestes de la Corée du Nord en mer Jaune. Il a ajouté que les tirs nord-coréens enveniment les tensions dans la région.

Au cours des dernières semaines, Pyongyang a mené plusieurs tirs de missiles de courte et moyenne portée en réplique à des exercices militaires conjoints américano-sud-coréens. Ces manoeuvres militaires ont débuté en février dernier et se termineront en avril.

The location and depth of the earthquake did not immediately suggest North Korean nuclear testing was the cause

12:59AM BST 01 Apr 2014

A magnitude five earthquake has been detected 132km (80 miles) from the Korean peninsula early on Tuesday morning, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) has said.

The quake, which was said to have occurred at approximately 03:48 local time, took place at a depth of nearly 16km (10 miles) in the sea west of the Korean peninsula – just days after North Korea threatened to carry out a “new form” of nuclear test.

While North Korean nuclear tests have previously been detected by the USGS quake monitoring center, the location and depth of the earthquake did not immediately suggest North Korean nuclear testing was the cause.

Although its December 2012 test M5.1 shockwave was similar in size to Tuesday’s 5.0M event, it was detected by geological surveys in China and the US as having occurred in a North Korean mountain range well known for weapons testing, and at a depth of only 1km.

On Sunday, North Korea threatened to carry out a “new form” of nuclear test, but did not clarify what it meant. Since then some observers have suggested that, angry with recent United Nations Security Council discussions about missile testing last week, Pyongyang may test a fourth nuclear device in the coming months.

On Monday, the two Koreas fired hundreds of rounds of artillery into waters along the disputed Northern Limit Line.

North Korea warned its southern neighbour at short-notice that it would commence the live fire drills, which some analysts said was Pyongyang’s way of protesting ongoing joint US – South Korea military drills.

Previously, North Korea has also warned its neighbours of impeding nuclear tests, usually also at short-notice.

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report April 4, 2014, 10:29 AM (IST)

Tags:  Iran nuclear,  Ukraine,  nuclear negotiations,  Russia-Iran,  sanctions,  Arak,

Arak heavy water-plutonium reactor

As the Six Power group and Iran prepared for their third round of nuclear talks in Vienna next week (Tuesday-Wednesday, April 8-9) Tehran frankly admitted to exploiting the holes in the six-month interim deal they forged in Geneva last November. And Moscow looks like making good on its threat to back the Iranian case, in retaliation for Western penalties for its annexation of Crimea.

In a closed meeting in Tehran Wednesday, April 3, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s Nuclear Energy Commission said: “We have 19,000 centrifuges of which 9,000 are in operation [for enriching uranium]. Our advice is not to discuss the number of centrifuges, rather to discuss the unit’s isolation power." He explained there are different types of centrifuge.

This was a candid admission that Iran had found a way to get around its commitment under the interim deal - which US Secretary of State John Kerry held up as his greatest diplomatic achievement - not to build or activate its most advanced centrifuges for speeding up enrichment. 

Salehi had no qualms about pointing to the holes in that deal, as the six foreign ministers prepared to face Iran in Vienna for the next round of negotiations on a comprehensive agreement for Iran’s nuclear program.

That forum will provide Moscow with its first opportunity to confront the West over Iran (and likely Syria too) for the sanctions and bans NATO meted out over Russia's Ukraine policy.

The architect of Russian policy on both issues, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov, gave due warning last week, when he said: “Russia wouldn’t like to use their [nuclear] talks as an element of the game of raising the stakes between Moscow and the West,” he said. “But if Russia feels forced, it would take retaliatory measures here as well.”

On the day the Iranian nuclear czar talked about Iran’s centrifuge capacity, sources in Moscow and Tehran reported that the two governments, both targets of Western sanctions, were close to a mammoth barter transaction: For 500,000 barrels of Iranian oil per day, Russia will supply goods of equivalent value including foodstuffs.

This transaction when it goes into effect will more or less scuttle the sanctions regime against Iran, including the oil embargo.

Salehi was accordingly not afraid to boast: “Enrichment activities have not ceased.”

The interim accord did not ban low-grade uranium enrichment, and that was another hole in the deal, because it allowed Iran to press forward and stockpile large quantities of the low grade material despite the fact that it can be refined to weapons grade in short order.

As for the heavy water-plutonium reactor under construction in Arak, Salehi commented: “Under normal circumstances, we would have needed at least two to three years to advance this project.” He went on to reveal: “Under the Geneva accord we undertook not to install certain major equipment for six months. So instead we worked on equipment quality.”

Referring to US President Barack Obama’s public statement last November that Iran had agreed to halt the Arak reactor project, Saleh pointed out: “The Arak reactor was never in operation for it to cease.”

However, Iran did not let the grass grow. Now that the six months of the interim accord is up, the improved equipment can be installed without further delay.
He also noted that a cessation of heavy water reactor operations was not covered in the Geneva Accord. “[The West] manipulated public opinion to persuade people that those operations must be stopped.”

This confirmed Israel’s complaint to Washington that the interim deal of last November and subsequent discussions between the big powers and Iran omitted to address the Arak project and its capacity for producing plutonium, as an alternative weapons fuel to enriched uranium.

The Iranian official made no secret of his government’s intentions. “Currently, we are not after establishing reprocessing facilities [for high grade enriched uranium and/or plutonium]. Of course, this does not mean that we renounce this right for ever.”

Story Number: NNS140405-01Release Date: 4/5/2014 12:01:00 AM  

By David Smalley, Office of Naval Research

ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) -- Autonomy options for the Marines have taken a major step forward, as officials at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) announced today two successful helicopter flight demonstrations with unmanned flight capability at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., part of the Autonomous Aerial Cargo/Utility System (AACUS) program.

AACUS will enable the Marine Corps to rapidly resupply forces on the front lines using cutting-edge technology sponsored by ONR. The system consists of a sensor and software package that will be integrated into rotary wing aircraft to detect and avoid obstacles in unfavorable weather conditions, or to enable autonomous, unmanned flight. The capability will be a welcome alternative to dangerous convoys, manned aircraft or air drops in all weather conditions.

"This is a giant leap in autonomous capabilities for our Marines," said Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Matthew Klunder. "Imagine a Marine unit needing more ammunition and water where a helicopter crew would be in peril trying to fly in, either from weather or enemy fire.

"With AACUS, an unmanned helicopter takes the supplies from the base, picks out the optimal route and best landing site closest to the warfighters, lands, and returns to base once the resupply is complete-all with the single touch of a handheld tablet."

The need for this capability surfaced during Marine Corps operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, experts say. Cargo helicopters and resupply convoys of trucks bringing fuel, food, water, ammunition and medical supplies to the front lines frequently found themselves under fire from adversaries, or the target of roadside bombs and other improvised explosive devices.

The AACUS technology is designed to be simple to use; an operator with minimal training can call up the supplies needed and order the flights using only a handheld tablet. In the demonstration tests at Quantico, a Marine with no prior experience with the technology was given a handheld device and 15 minutes of training.

The Marine was able to quickly and easily program in the supplies needed and the destination, and the helicopters arrived quickly-even autonomously selecting an alternative landing site based on last-second no-fly-zone information added in from the Marine.

"This technology truly opens up new unmanned operations capabilities," said Max Snell, the AACUS program manager. "In the most immediate sense, AACUS will enable safer resupply for the warfighter and save pilots' lives. Down the road, as the technology develops, it could be used for casualty evacuation, bringing supplies to first responders in disaster areas, and more."

The technology enables the manned or unmanned rotary wing aircraft to detect and avoid obstacles like telephone wires, large objects on the ground and even a vehicle or other object that has appeared since the initial landing site was chosen by AACUS.

Officials say the five-year effort represents a leap-ahead technology for the Marine Corps and Navy, moving autonomous flights far beyond the current standard which requires a specialized operator to select a landing site and manually control an unmanned aircraft via remote.

"Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has discussed using drones to deliver a customer's book order in 30 minutes," said Klunder. "We're talking the same concept here-the difference is, we're bringing our customer, the Marine, 5,000 pounds of ammo and water instead."

By Cheryl Pellerin
American Forces Press Service

TOKYO, April 6, 2014 – For reasons a senior defense official said included North Korean provocations, treaty commitments to Japan and U.S. national security interests, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said today that the United States will send Japan two more Aegis-equipped ballistic-missile defense ships by 2017.

The ships are designed to intercept ballistic missiles post-boost phase and before reentry. When delivered, Japan will have a total of seven such ships. Hagel made the announcement this morning during a joint press conference with Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera after the two leaders met earlier to discuss a range of alliance issues, including the threat posed by North Korea.

“In response to Pyongyang¹s pattern of provocative and destabilizing actions, including recent missile launches in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions, I can announce today that the United States is planning to forward-deploy two additional Aegis ballistic missile defense ships to Japan by 2017,” Hagel said.

The secretary said he visited one of the U.S. ballistic missile defense ships when he was in Japan on October 3, 2013, for the “2 plus 2” meeting of U.S. and Japanese secretaries of state and defense.

This deployment follows our October announcement to establish a second missile-defense radar site in Kyoto Prefecture and my decision last year to increase ground-based interceptors in Alaska,” Hagel said, adding that these steps will enhance the United States’ ability to defend Japan and its own homeland from North Korea’s ballistic missile threat.

Significantly bolstering the U.S. naval presence also strengthens the U.S.-Japan alliance and increases deterrence against North Korean aggression, the secretary said.

In late March, on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague, President Barack Obama, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Park Geun-hye sat down for the first time to discuss the shared threat they face from North Korea. They agreed that they would consider specific steps they could take to deepen diplomatic and military coordination to deter the threat, including joint exercises and on missile defense.

Building off that meeting, Hagel said today that he and Onodera had “discussed ways to help deepen trilateral defense cooperation,” including through the upcoming Defense Trilateral Talks to be held in Washington this month.

Hagel and Onodera also discussed plans for consolidation on Okinawa, and the secretary thanked the minister for Japan’s efforts in securing approval in December for the Futenma replacement facility¹s landfill permit.

“We look forward to the facility¹s construction beginning soon,” Hagel said. “I reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to continue exploring ways to reduce the economic impact of our facilities on Okinawa and our desire to be a good neighbor.”

The secretary said these issues will be part of revising the guidelines for U.S.-Japan defense cooperation as the United States adjusts its posture in the Asia-Pacific region and Japan expands its roles and relationships around the world.

“The United States welcomes Japan’s efforts to play a more proactive role in contributing to global and regional peace and stability,” Hagel said, “including reexamining the interpretation of its Constitution relating to the rights of collective self-defense.”

It is Japan’s responsibility and sovereign right to review its self-defense guidelines in the interests of what is best for the Japanese people, the secretary added.
“We encourage and support that effort and believe the decisions made by the Japanese government on behalf of the Japanese people will continue to enhance and strengthen this important alliance between our two countries,” he said.

During their meeting, Hagel and Onodera also discussed key challenges in the East China Sea.

“I restated the principles that govern longstanding U.S. policy on the Senkaku Islands and other islands,” the secretary said, “and we affirmed that since [the Senkaku Islands] are under Japan’s administrative control, they fall under Article 5 of our Mutual Security Treaty.”

According to Article 5, “each party recognizes that an armed attack against either party in the territories under the administration of Japan would be dangerous to its own peace and safety and declares that it would act to meet the common danger in accordance with its constitutional provisions and processes.”
It continues, “Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall be immediately reported to the Security Council of the United Nations in accordance with the provisions of Article 51 of the Charter. Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain INTERNATIONAL PEACE and SECURITY.”

“We take seriously America's treaty commitments and we strongly oppose any unilateral coercive action that seeks to undermine Japan¹s administrative control,” Hagel said. “A peaceful resolution of territorial disputes is in the interest of all nations of the region.”

America has no stronger ally or better friend in this region than Japan, he added.

Going forward, the secretary said, there’s “no doubt that, as the United States continues to rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific, the enduring friendship and alliance between our two nations will only grow stronger.”

Tomorrow, Hagel said, he continues his Asia-Pacific trip with a stop in China at the invitation of Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan.

“I look forward to spending time in China and having direct conversations with the leaders in China about many issues,” the secretary added. “Certainly many … of those issues will revolve around the Asia-Pacific issues, the East China Sea, the South China Sea, [China’s] neighbors [and] the continued dangerous and provocative actions of the North Koreans.”

Great powers have great responsibilities and China is a great power, Hagel said.

“With this power comes new and wider responsibilities as to how you use that power, how you employ that military power,” he added. “And I want to talk with the Chinese about all of that, particularly transparency -- a key dimension of relationships. Transparency, intentions, what governments are doing, why. The more transparent and open governments can be with each other, the better for everyone. That avoids miscalculation, misinterpretation, misunderstanding, and hopefully that lowers the risk of conflict.”

Hagel said he’d also like to speak with the Chinese about respect for one’s neighbors. Coercion and intimidation are deadly and lead only to conflict, he added.
“All nations, all people, deserve respect no matter how large or how small. I think we're seeing clear evidence of a lack of respect, along with intimidation and coercion in Europe today in what the Russians have done in Ukraine,” the secretary said.

“We must be very careful and … very clear, [to] all nations of the world, that in the 21st century this will not stand,” he added. “You cannot go around the world and redefine boundaries and violate territorial integrity and sovereignty of nations by force, coercion and intimidation, whether it's in small islands in the Pacific or large nations in Europe. Nations must be clear on this and speak plainly. It takes courage from leaders.”

Hagel said he’d like to speak with the Chinese about common interests and building relationships, especially military-to-military relationships, and opportunities for engagement with neighbors like Japan and South Korea.

“I look forward to an honest dialogue,” he added. “I look forward to listening carefully to the Chinese, and only then do we help move forward, not just with opportunities but with possibilities and the processes to fulfill those prospects.”

dimanche 6 avril 2014

A propos d’armées secrètes ou de troupes d’intervention policière secrètes. Elles existent depuis longtemps dans l’UE, mais peu de gens le savent.  
La troupe policière de l’UE existe depuis longtemps – et elle dispose de larges pouvoirs ! Actuellement, c’est une « troupe d’intervention spéciale » forte de 3000 hommes ( !) sous le sigle difficiledifficile
à prononcer « Eurogend­for » (European Gendarmerie Force/troupes de police européennes). Le commandement se trouve à Vincenza en Italie, loin du siège de l’UE !
Ce corps de police a été créé à l’initia­tive de l’ancienne ministre de la Défense française Michèle Alliot-Marie, pour réprimer à l’avenir plus facilement les manifestations qui dégénèrent toujours à nouveau dans les villes françaises.  

Le grand problème est le suivant : Eurogend­for va à l’avenir réduire au niveau européen le droit national et la souveraineté natio­nale des Etats-membres de l’UE ! Un « conseil de guerre », qui se compose des ministères de la Défense et de la Sécurité des pays de l’UE participantparticipant
à l’Eurogendfor et du pays concerné, décidera de l’intervention dans un Etat-membre de l’UE – voilà comment est réglementée la nouvelle troupe policière de l’UE dans le « document constitutif » dé­nommé Accord de Velsen (NL).


Cela représente pour lespour les
observateurs un droit d’occupation par l’UE.  

Car, si une intervention à l’intérieur d’un pays « ami », membre de l’UE, est une fois décidée, tous les bâtiments et zoneszones
occupés par des unités d’Eurogendfor, jouissent de l’immu­nité et ne sont plus accessibles pour les autorités du pays concerné
. En fait, il s’agit d’un droit d’occupation par l’UE. Mais il y a pire : l’Eurogendfor ne dispose pas seulement dans le cas particulier de compétences policières mais aussi de compétences qu’ont les ser­vices secrets et elle a le devoir de réinstaller l’ordre et le calme dans la zone d’intervention concernée en collaboration étroite avec l’armée ( !). En cas de besoin, les troupes doivent avoir à disposition toutes les autorisations et tous les moyens pour remplirremplir
leur mandat.

Eurogendfor résout divers problèmes pour les gouvernements européens. A l’avenir, ils pourront, lors de troubles sociaux ou de manifestations majeures de longue durée, utiliser des armes à feu contre leurs populations, mettre des zones entières sous quarantaine militaire et retirer les meneurs de la circulation sans avoir à engager leurs propres forces militaires ou policières qui pourraient éventuellement se solidariser avec les manifestants. L’Eurogendfor de son côté, ne pourra pas être poursuivi en justice grâce à ses autorisations exceptionnelles, civiles et militaires.


Notons que ce n’est que grâce au Traité de Lisbonne – qui n’est rien d’autre que l’ancienne « Constitution européenne » controversée sous un nouveau titre – qu’une telle situation incroyable à pu être instaurée. Grâce au jugement du Tribunal constitutionnel su­prême, les politiques allemands, qui ont soutenu ce traité douteux à la quasi-unanimité au Bundestag, auront à l’avenir le droit d’être entendus. Un homme politique allemand, ramené à la réalité, déclare lors d’un entretien privé : « On s’amusera bien au sein de l’Eurogendfor quand à l’avenir l’état d’urgence sera imposé dans les centres chauds de Bottrop ou Neukölln en Allemagne fédérale. »

du 23/1/10

Traduction: Horizons et débats

Voilà également une description de ce corps d'armée provenant du site de la gendarmerie nationale. Elle indique entre autre: "Elle sera mise à disposition prioritairement, au profit de l'Union européenne, ou d'organisations internationales (ONU, OTANOTAN
, OSCE), ou encore d'une coalition ad hoc

Pour répondre aux évolutions des crises internationales, Mme ALLIOT-MARIE a proposé que l'Espagne, l´Italie, le Portugal, les Pays-Bas et la France qui disposent de forces de police à statut militairemilitaire
, travaillent ensemble à la création d'une Force de gendarmerie européenne (FGE) en mesure d'effectuer des missions de sécurité publique au profit d'une force militaire

La création de cette force a été approuvée par la déclaration d'intention signée par les différents ministres de la défense à NOORDWIJK (Pays Bas) le 17 septembre 2004.

Le général de gendarmerie Gérard DEANAZ a été nommé premier commandant de l'EUROGENDFOR à l'issue de la réunion du comité politico-militaire de la FGE le 21 janvier 2005. Il a été remplacé en Juin 2007 par le Colonel Giovanni TRUGLIO (Carabinieri - Italie).

Dans le cadre de la montée en puissance de la FGE, le premier exercice cadre, s'est tenu du 15 au 17 juin 2005 au Centre national d'entraînemententraînement
des forces gendarmerie (CNEFG) de SAINT-ASTIER (Dordogne), a validé la doctrine d'emploi de la FGE. Cet exercice a reçu notamment la visite de personnalités de l'Union européenne. L'état-major permanent de la FGE a ensuite conduit un exercice (baptisé EGEX 06) avec troupes déployées sur le terrain fin avril 2006 dans le but de voir déclarer sa pleine capacité opérationnelle.

Un corps européen de gendarmerie :

Inspiré de l'Euroforce, ce concept met en exergue un état-major permanent, dédié, pré positionné, et doté de capacités tournantes entre les différents pays. Il conduit un entraînement spécifique et a vocation à être partiellement déployable le cas échéant.

Aujourd'hui, son effectif est de 30 personnels qui se répartissent comme suit :

- France : 5 officiers et 2 sous/officiers ;
- Italie : 5 officiers et 6 sous/officiers ;
- Espagne : 2 officiers et 3 sous/officiers ;
- Portugal : 2 officiers et 1 sous/officier ;
- Pays-Bas : 2 officiers et 2 sous/officiers.

L'EUROGENDFOR est organisée en cinq modules, l’un permanent, les autres de circonstance :

- A Vicenza (Italie) de manière permanente : L'état-major multinational Permanent, nécessaire à la planification amont, au déploiement et au commandement de la force de gendarmerie européenne.
- Sur les théâtres d’opération :
  • Un Etat major de Force,
  • Une composante mobile comprenant des unités de type escadrons de gendarmerie mobile appelées Unités de Police Intégrées (IPU), orientée vers les missions de sécurité publique générale et de maintien de l'ordre public.
  • Une composante spécialisée dans les missions de police judiciaire, de lutte contre la criminalité organisée, de recherche et d'exploitation du renseignement, de protection de personnalités ou de témoins, de contrôle des flux de populations, de lutte antiterroriste et d'interventions spécialisées, travaillant en accompagnement des escadrons de gendarmerie mobile.
  • Une Unité de soutien logistique capable d'assurer le soutien de la force.

La FGE est susceptible d'intervenir à différentes phases de la crise :

- phasephase
militaire de la crise : la FGE est engagée dans le sillage de la force militaire, assurant des missions de sécurité publique générale et des actions de police judiciaire;
- phase de transition - crise de moyenne intensité : la FGE poursuit sa mission au sein de la force militaire tout en facilitant la coordinationcoordination
et la coopération avec des unités de police;
- phase de théâtre stabilisé : la FGE pourrait, sous autorité civile internationale, faciliter la transition vers des actions de coopération ou être désengagée;
- engagement de la FGE à titre préventif : en l'absence de force militaire préalablement déployée, la FGE pourrait être utilisée dans des cas particulièrement identifiés.

La FGE (EUROGENDFOR) possède une capacité initiale de réaction rapide d´environ 800 personnels sous un délai de 30 jours. Elle doit pouvoir couvrir tous les aspects d´une opération de gestion de crise, principalement en mission de substitution.

Elle sera mise à disposition prioritairement, au profit de l'Union européenne, ou d'organisations internationalesinternationales
(ONU, OTAN, OSCE), ou encore d'une coalition ad hoc.

Elle est conçue comme un outiloutil
policier intégré appréhendant ainsi la fonction policière de manière globale, regroupant l'ensemble des missions qui lui sont dévolues : maintien de l'ordre, sécurité publique, police judiciaire, recherche et exploitation du renseignement

Outil de transition de la gestion de crise, la FGE pourra exercer l'ensemble de ses missions aussi bien sous commandement militaire, dans le sillage du dispositif de puissance lors d'un conflit de haute intensité, que lors de la mise en place d'un régime démocratique sous autorité civile.

L’inauguration officielle de la FGE à VICENZA (Italie) a eu lieu le 23 janvier 2006 en présenceprésence
notamment des cinq ministres de la défense.

La cérémonie de signaturesignature

Story Number: NNS140407-03Release Date: 4/7/2014 9:07:00 AM  

From Naval Sea Systems Command Office of Corporate Communication

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The U.S. Navy plans to install and test a prototype electromagnetic railgun aboard a joint high speed vessel in fiscal year 2016, the service announced today.

This test will mark the first time an electromagnetic railgun (EM railgun) has been demonstrated at sea, symbolizing a significant advance in naval combat.

EM railgun technology uses an electromagnetic force - known as the Lorenz Force - to rapidly accelerate and launch a projectile between two conductive rails. This guided projectile is launched at such high velocities that it can achieve greater ranges than conventional guns. It maintains enough kinetic energy that it doesn't require any kind of high explosive payload when
it reaches its target.

High-energy EM railguns are expected to be lethal and effective against multiple threats, including enemy warships, small boats, aircraft, missiles and land-based targets.

"The electromagnetic railgun represents an incredible new offensive capability for the U.S. Navy," said Rear Adm. Bryant Fuller, the Navy's chief engineer. "This capability will allow us to effectively counter a wide-range of threats at a relatively low cost, while keeping our ships and sailors safer by removing the need to carry as many high-explosive weapons."

EM railgun technology will complement current kinetic weapons currently onboard surface combatants and offer a few specific advantages. Against specific threats, the cost per engagement is orders of magnitude less expensive than comparable missile engagements. The
projectile itself is being designed to be common with some current powder guns, enabling the conservation of expensive missiles for use against more complex threats.

"Energetic weapons, such as EM railguns, are the future of naval combat," said Rear Adm. Matt Klunder, the chief of naval research. "The U.S. Navy is at the forefront of this game-changing technology."

This demonstration is the latest in a series of technical maturation efforts designed to provide an
operational railgun to the fleet. Since 2005, the Navy and its partners in industry and academia have been testing railgun technology at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, Va., and the Naval Research Lab where the service has a number of prototype systems.

The final operational system will be capable of launching guided, multi-mission projectiles to a
range of 110 nautical miles against a wide range of threats. The series of tests are designed to
capture lessons for incorporation into a future tactical design and will allow the Navy to best
understand needed ship modifications before fully integrating the technology.

The Navy is using JHSV as a vessel of opportunity because of its available cargo and topside
space and schedule flexibility. Because JHSVs are non-combatants, there is no plan to
permanently install a railgun on any ship of the class. A final decision has not been made on
which ship classes will receive a fully operational railgun.

Posté dans Europe, Forces navales par Laurent Lagneau Le 08-04-2014

La semaine passée, un responsable du Pentagone avait indiqué que l’envoi d’un destroyer de la classe Arleigh Burke en mer Noire figurait parmi les mesures envisagées pour rassurer les pays d’Europe de l’est membres de l’Otan après le passage de la Crimée dans le giron russe et les tensions qui subsistent à la frontière ukrainienne.

Et, quelques jours plus tard, le colonel Steven Warren, un porte-parole du Pentagone, a annoncé l’envoi du destroyer USS Donald Cook en mer Noire. Ce bâtiment est basé de manière permanente depuis 2 mois à Rota, près de Cadix, en Espagne, dans le cadre du bouclier anti-missile de l’Otan.

Etant donné qu’il met en oeuvre le système anti-missile Aegis, l’USS Donald Cook est doté de plusieurs capteurs électroniques et de radars, dont l’AN/SPY-1D 3D, lequel peut détecter et suivre simultanément plus de 200 mouvements aériens à plus de 200 milles de portée. Ce qui peut toujours être utile pour avoir un oeil sur l’activité de l’avion russe en mer Noire.

« La raison (de ce déploiement) est avant tout de rassurer nos alliés et partenaires dans la région », a expliqué le colonel Warren. L’USS Donald Cook aura à effectuer quelques exercices avec des pays de l’Otan mais il n’est pas prévu qu’il fasse relâche dans un port ukrainien.

Parmi les autres mesures envisagées, il est question d’organiser des exercices de plus grande ampleur qu’il était initialement envisagé pour l’été prochain, avec la participation d’une brigade de la 1ere Division de cavalerie de l’US Army. Des officiers américains vont se rendre « prochainement » en Europe pour en discuter les modalités avec les pays concernés.

Sometimes the news is just so drearily awful that you have to sit back and almost appreciate the pure comedy induced by it. Take this item from Washington, Iowa, where the local police have recently acquired an MRAP vehicle (short for Mine Resistance Ambush Protected) through a Defense Department program that donates excess vehicles originally produced for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to local police departments across the United States, including other Iowa towns such as Mason City and Storm Lake. The MRAP weighs an impressive 49,000 pounds, stands 10-feet tall, and possesses a whopping six-wheel drive. Originally designed to resist landmines and IEDs, it sure seems like the MRAP will come in handy for the notorious war zone otherwise known as Washington County, Iowa.

If you’re having a bad day, I highly recommend watching a video produced by the Des Moines Register in which Washington police officials try to justify the possession of a vehicle it clearly has no use for. The excuses range from school shootings (which are an actual concern but an MRAP seems like overkill) to a terrorist attack happening in central Iowa (because if there’s any place that seems ripe for a high-profile terrorist attack it’s Washington, Iowa, population 7,000).

I mean if the police were realistic, they could come up with actual reasons to use their MRAP/machine of doom. Drunken high-school house parties could be broken up by ramming the MRAP into the side of the building. Clearly, people who have been trying to curtail underage drinking have not seriously considered the serious deterrents to slamming down a few Hamms in your parents’ house caused by a soulless war machine demolishing your kitchen.

In all seriousness however (and it is hard to be serious about a situation so absurd) this little anecdote does highlight several disturbing trends in the American cultural landscape. Most blatantly, the collective paranoia that’s gripped post-9/11 America so tightly that small-town Iowa police officers are convinced that, any minute, the whole state could become engulfed in some Red Dawn-style conflict that would require the use of a device such as the MRAP.

But, a little more subtly, this incident reflects the out-of-control militarization of the police that’s been occurring across small towns and big cities from Los Angeles to Waterville, Maine. As Radley Balko, the author of the book The Rise of the Warrior Cop, an expose of the police militarization of the last decade, found, in 2006 alone the Pentagon, “distributed vehicles worth $15.4 million, aircraft worth $8.9 million, boats worth $6.7 million, weapons worth $1 million and “other” items worth $110.6 million to local police agencies.”

The effects of cops moving from handguns to assault rifles and being equipped with tanks, bazookas, and Kevlar has been twofold. First, civil liberties have absolutely been eroded, with police-brutality rates skyrocketing in last decade according to the Justice Department. Not only that, but, with the influx of military gear into local police forces, cops begin to view themselves as soldiers whose main job is combat rather than keeping the peace. How else can you explain the rise in police shootings since 9/11? But hey, the sheriff gets to ride around in a sweet new MRAP and pretend he’s Rambo so, you know, let’s call it a draw.

Apr 9, 5:50 PM EDT

Associated Press

PARIS (AP) -- NATO's top military commander in Europe, drafting countermoves to the Russian military threat against Ukraine, said Wednesday they could include deployment of American troops to alliance member states in Eastern Europe now feeling at risk.

U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove told The Associated Press he wouldn't "write off involvement by any nation, to include the United States."

Foreign ministers of the 28-nation alliance have given Breedlove until Tuesday to propose steps to reassure NATO members nearest Russia that other alliance countries have their back.

"Essentially what we are looking at is a package of land, air and maritime measures that would build assurance for our easternmost allies," Breedlove told the AP. "I'm tasked to deliver this by next week. I fully intend to deliver it early."

Asked again if American soldiers might be sent to NATO's front-line states closest to Russia, the four-star U.S. general said, "I would not write off contributions from any nation."

In March, Russian troops took control of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, whose inhabitants then voted in a referendum to secede and join Russia. The U.S. and other Western countries have accused Moscow of massing troops on Ukraine's border to maintain the pressure on the government in Kiev, and possibly for military use.

Speaking at the end of a NATO conference in Paris, Breedlove told the AP the Russian armed presence near Ukraine's frontier continues unabated.

To illustrate his point, the general's staff provided the AP with a set of commercial satellite photographs they said showed Russian warplanes, combat helicopters, armor, artillery and a probable airborne or special forces brigade deployed in locations east of the Ukraine-Russian border, including along the coastline of the Sea of Azov.

A defense analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank, reviewed the satellite images and said the forces depicted in them don't appear to be involved in training exercises.

They appear to be "in combat readiness," Anthony Cordesman said.

But he said it's unclear from the images how much of a buildup of Russian forces there has been in the border area.

"They show there is a mixture of light and heavy forces and that they could go quickly" if ordered into Ukraine, and that they include forces to provide air mobility, according to Cordesman. "But that's all they show," he said.

The commercial provider of the photographs, DigitalGlobe, said they were taken in late March.

"What we see there is a force of about 40,000," Breedlove said. "I would characterize it as a combined arms army. In other words, this is an army that has all of the provisioning and enablers that it needs to accomplish military objectives if given them."

The Russians' assets include fixed and rotary wing aircraft, artillery, field hospitals, communications and jamming gear, he said.

Kremlin objectives remain unclear, the NATO commander said. The force could stand pat and intimidate Ukraine solely by its presence, drive south to create a land bridge with Crimea, push along the Black Sea coast to the Ukrainian port city of Odessa and the largely Russian Trans-Dniester enclave of Moldova, or invade other areas of eastern Ukraine where ethnic Russians are demanding unity with Russia, he said.

However the Russian contingent might ultimately be used, it's "ready to go essentially at command. We talk about inside of 12 hours," Breedlove said.
NATO has already reinforced its Baltic air patrols and is performing daily AWACs surveillance flights over Poland and Romania. Breedlove said he has already received enough pledges of maritime assets from NATO member states to carry out beefed-up maritime operations through the end of the year.

"The tougher piece is, how do we do the assurance piece on the land," the general said. "Because these are measures which are more costly (and) if not done correctly, might appear provocative. And everything we are trying to do in the air, on the ground and at sea we are trying to completely characterize as defensive in nature."

"There is not a shortage of what we can use. It's how do we use this in a measured way that indicates defensive capability so that we don't provoke. And that's what we will be working on," Breedlove said before departing for NATO's military headquarters near Mons, Belgium.
AP National Security Writer Robert Burns contributed to this report from Washington.

jeudi 10 avril 2014

Comme l'US Navy vante les capacités de sa nouvelle arme de rail électromagnétique de grande puissance, le service a annoncé son objectif de tester l'arme en mer en 2016.

Le pistolet de rail, souvent comparé à quelque chose de "Star Wars", utilise l'énergie électromagnétique projectiles 23-pound à tirer jusqu'à sept fois la vitesse du son et plus de 100 km. Alors que les essais ont eu lieu jusqu'à présent uniquement sur terre, le contre-amiral Matt Klunder de l'équipe de recherche navale dit que dans deux ans l'arme serait placé sur le haut débit USNS Millinocket pour des essais en mer. 

«C'est désormais une réalité et ce n'est pas la science-fiction. C'est en fait réel. Vous pouvez le regarder. C'est le tir", a déclaré à l'agence Reuters Klunder.

Les modèles actuels de l'arme de rail - développé par General Atomic et un par BAE Systems - peuvent tirer un seul projectile à la fois, mais la prochaine phase de développement verront BAE travaille sur une version qui peut tirer plusieurs coups de feu en succession rapide et auto-charger ses munitions. 

Comme indiqué par Reuters, les responsables américains se méfient de l'idée que les nations concurrentes pourraient effacer bord du pays en matière de capacités militaires - notamment, la RT a rapporté en 2012 que la Chine a développé des anticorps anti-navires des missiles balistiques, dont le fusil ferroviaire est destiné à neutraliser. 

Si les tests sont concluants, le déploiement de l'arme pourrait maintenir cet avantage même que les budgets de défense diminuent. "Je pense que c'est un très bon message de dissuasion à nos adversaires là-bas qui veulent menacer notre nation", a déclaré à Fox Nouvelles Klunder.

15 avril, 2014 Posté par Ender sous Actualité générale, Géopolitique

A la remorque
de l’OTAN et de l’administration Obama qui tire les ficelles du gouvernement putschiste à Kiev, trois navires de guerre Français ont été déployés en Mer Noire à la suite du destroyer US Donald Cook. Cette escalade supplémentaire vers une militarisation du conflit et l’engagement de la marine Française sont passés sous silence par les grands médias nationaux. Il faut dire que les Français risqueraient fort de désapprouver ce nouvel acte de servilité de leurs élites politiques…


Tandis que les États-Unis et d’autres alliés de l’OTAN déploient leurs navires en Méditerranée orientale dans le cadre de l’opération « Active Endeavor » (Effort actif), la Russie déploie ou rapatrie certains des siens en Mer Noire. La Turquie, quant à elle, y poursuit des manœuvres navales impliquant sept frégates, une corvette, deux sous-marins et quelques autres navires. La France n’est pas en reste. Elle ne se contente pas de participer à Active Endeavor, elle pousse ses pions vers les côtes d’Ukraine et de Russie. Trois navires : deux de plus que les États-Unis.

Comme du temps de Napoléon III

Les Français l’ignorent, mais depuis une quinzaine de jours, la marine de guerre française se manifeste activement en Mer Noire. Selon plusieurs sources (turques, russes, ukrainiennes, roumaine…), dont le site turc « Bosphorus Naval News » de Cem Devrim Yaylal, qui relève systématiquement les passages de navires de guerre à travers le Bosphore.

Fin mars (le 26 ou le 28 selon les sources), la frégate Alizé, « bâtiment de soutien de plongée », y pénètre pour participer officiellement à un exercice naval conjoint au large de Varna (Bulgarie).

L’Alizé est un bâtiment de 60 mètres de long et 1500 tonnes. Avec un équipage de 18 hommes, il peut embarquer jusqu’à 230 passagers. Il est équipé pour assurer toutes sortes de missions de plongée, dont le renseignement à l’étranger et le support de plongeurs de combat. On ignore où est la frégate actuellement, mais on ne l’a pas vue ressortir de Mer Noire et le Courrier de Russie vient d’affirmer qu’elle y est encore.

Le 10 avril, dans le sillage du destroyer américain USS Donald Cook, le navire de renseignement Dupuy de Lôme franchit les Dardanelles et pénètre à son tour en Mer Noire.

Cf. La France envoie un navire-espion en Mer Noire, les Etats-Unis un destroyer lance-missiles

Au même moment, le Bâtiment de Commandement et de Ravitaillement BCR Var (A608), pétrolier ravitailleur de la classe Durance, fait escale à Marmaris (Sud-Ouest de la Turquie, Méditerranée orientale). Outre sa mission de soutien logistique aux autres navires, le Var peut embarquer un état major amiral de 70 personnes.

Et de trois !

Aujourd’hui 14 avril, c’est la frégate anti-sous marine Dupleix qui est attendue en Mer Noire, pour y rester jusqu’en mai.

Le ministère de la défense, qui à notre connaissance n’a encore publié aucun communiqué sur son envoi ni sur celui d’autres navires français en Mer Noire, décrit ainsi ses missions :

• Conçues à l’origine pour assurer prioritairement la défense anti-sous-marine d’un groupe aéronaval, les frégates de lutte anti-sous-marine (FASM) ont vu récemment leurs capacités d’action au-dessus de la surface fortement renforcées.

• La mise un place de senseurs optroniques, d’armes puissantes et de mise en œuvre très rapide permet désormais à la FASM, non seulement d’identifier avec certitude la menace avant de la traiter, afin d’éviter toute méprise, mais aussi de conserver la plus grande retenue possible avant l’engagement, dans le but de ne pas élever le niveau de la crise.

• Bâtiment de combat moderne et performant, la FASM constitue un outil militaire puissant, capable d’intervenir, seul ou au sein d’une force interarmées nationale ou multinationale, en tout point des mers où la France a décidé d’agir pour MAINTENIR OU RESTAURER LA PAIX.

Silence en France, bruits de bottes ailleurs

A Paris, les grandes manœuvres de la marine française, soigneusement passées sous silence par le gouvernement, sont ignorées de la presse, des médias, et par suite, de l’opinion publique ou, si l’on préfère, du peuple français.

Ce n’est le cas ni à Moscou, ni à Kiev.

A Moscou, les Izvestia consacrent un édito du 14 avril à l’arrivée du Dupleix en Mer Noire.

A Kiev, Vesti, dans son journal en ligne de langue russe, en fait autant. La Deutsche Welle, radio allemande à destination de l’étranger, en parle dans son édition en langue ukrainienne. Ainsi, Russes et Ukrainiens, russophones ou non, sont mieux informés que les Français de ce que fait la France.

Dans le contexte de tension actuel, chaque « geste » militaire, même s’il relève peut-être de la « gesticulation diplomatique » et n’enfreint pas la loi internationale, peut provoquer un accrochage. Un incident naval en Mer Noire pourrait fort bien survenir et dégénérer en conflit armé. Autrement dit, en guerre. On espère que ce ne sera pas le cas. Mais si cela devait être, une fois de plus les Français seraient mis devant le fait accompli.

Ils le sont d’ores et déjà du fait du silence gouvernemental et médiatique, qui entretient citoyens et parlementaires dans l’ignorance de ce que fait leur marine nationale, sous pavillon français et au nom du peuple français.

C’est ce qu’on appelle une démocratie bien tempérée.

Les rebelles syriens ont annoncé pour la première fois avoir reçu au moins 20 missiles antichars TOW de fabrication américaine.
"Des combattants modérés et bien organisés appartenant au mouvement Hazm (appartenant à la soi-disant Armée syrienne libre), ont

"On nous en a promis plus s'ils sont utilisés à bon escient", a-t-il ajouté.
Selon lui, "des dizaines de combattants ont subi un entrainement grâce à une aide
internationale pour pouvoir les utiliser", ajoutant que ce matériel avait déjà été utilisé dans des points chauds, comme les provinces septentrionales d'Idleb, Alep et Lattaquié.

Un vidéo amateur distribué par Masarat media network, un réseau de l'opposition, montre des insurgés déballant puis tirant ces missiles dans des régions rurales non localisées.
Les Occidentaux prétendent qu’ils sont réticents à livrer des armes sophistiquées aux rebelles, par crainte qu'elles ne tombent aux mains des takfiristes.

PA duplicity: PA minister told Palestinians about terrorist prisoners:

They are not criminals,    
their hands committed no crime,   
they are an authentic element
of the Palestinian movement [March 28, 2014]

The same minister told Israeli journalists about this week's murder of Israeli civilian:
"It hurts... We condemn the killing of any person.
The principle of killing and violence is completely unacceptable" [April 16, 2014] 

Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik   

PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash met with Israeli journalists today and condemned this week's murder of an Israeli:
"This Israeli who was murdered, it hurts... We condemn the killing of any person. The principle of killing and violence is completely unacceptable."    
[Israel Army Radio, April, 16, 2014]

Yet, just two weeks ago, this same Al-Habbash defended and honored all Palestinian terrorists who are in Israeli prisons: 

"All the Palestinian prisoners who protected [our] land, honor and homeland are prisoners of freedom; they are prisoners of war. They are not criminals, will never be and have never been. Their hands committed no crime. They were defending themselves. They are an inseparable part of this national Palestinian movement and one of its authentic elements."
[Official PA TV March 28, 2014]  
  This is another example of PA's policy of duplicity: The minister told the authentic Palestinian message to Palestinians and the opposite message to Israelis and the West. When PA Minister Al-Habbash defined Palestinian prisoners as people whose "hands committed no crime" and who are "an authentic element" of the Palestinian movement, he was including well known imprisoned terrorists like Abdullah Barghouti, (67 life sentences), Ibrahim Hamed, (54 life sentences) and Abbas Al-Sayid, (35 life sentences), all imprisoned for planning suicide bombings that murdered in all 156 civilians.

Today's statement to Israelis that "we condemn the killing of any person" is an attempt to hide the ongoing PA support for murder of Israelis when speaking to Israelis. PMW has documented this double speak in the book Deception - Betraying the Peace Process, which details the PA's messages to Palestinians of non-recognition of Israel, demonization and hate speech, and promotion of violence and glorification of terrorists.

Ottawa déploiera six avions de chasse CF-18 en Europe de l'Est dans le cadre de sa participation aux opérations de défense des pays membres de l'OTAN dans cette région, en raison de la crise en Ukraine.

Une vingtaine d'officiers canadiens doivent également être déployés à Mons, en Belgique, au quartier général de l'OTAN pour participer à l'élaboration de plans et coordonner la mission.

Le premier ministre du Canada, Stephen Harper, qui rencontrait jeudi matin le chef d'état-major canadien, Tom Lawson, à Ottawa, en a fait l'annonce.

« Nous continuons à travailler avec nos alliés de l'OTAN et nos partenaires du monde pour contrer l'expansion militaire de la Russie sous le régime de M. Poutine. [...] Cela représente à long terme, à mon avis, une vraie menace à la paix et la sécurité mondiale. » — Stephen Harper, premier ministre du Canada

Les six avions de chasse canadiens et leurs équipes de soutien seront déployés en Europe à partir de la base de Bagotville, au Québec d'ici la fin du mois d'avril.

Ottawa, qui songeait aussi à redéployer en Méditerranée la frégate Régina, actuellement en mer d'Oman, a renoncé à cette idée.

Plus tôt jeudi, la Maison-Blanche a annoncé l'envoi d'une aide militaire non létale aux forces gouvernementales ukrainiennes. Selon le secrétaire à la Défense, Chris Hagel, les équipements acheminés en Ukraine seront d'ordre médical et logistique.

L'annonce de ces renforts canadiens et américains en Europe de l'Est survient au lendemain de l'annonce, par l'OTAN d'une intensification des mesures de défense de ses membres en Europe de l'Est à la suite de l'annexion de la Crimée par la Russie et des risques de nouvelles incursions russes dans les pays de la région.

L'OTAN entend augmenter sa présence aérienne, terrestre et navale, notamment dans les pays baltes, en Pologne ainsi qu'en Roumanie, tous membres de l'Alliance.

LAGOS, Nigeria (NNS) -- U.S., European, South American and African naval forces concluded two days of in-port familiarization drills at the Nigerian navy's Joint Maritime Security Training Center, April 17.

The evolutions were part of Obangame Express, a Gulf of Guinea-based multinational maritime exercise designed to improve cooperation, interdiction expertise and information sharing among West and Central African maritime forces in order to increase maritime safety and security in the region.

A variety of skill sets including visit, board, search and seizure, and medical response were tested in order to prepare personnel for three days of underway operations in the Gulf of Guinea that will include real-world, at sea scenarios mirroring counter-piracy and counter-illicit trafficking operations.

"Exposure to these techniques and the legal principles that apply, will provide sailors the ability to make sure they are properly gathering and handling evidence so traffickers can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, no matter which country has jurisdiction," said U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Jeffrey Deitel, officer in charge of the Pacific Tactical Law Enforcement Team.

Members of the Pacific Tactical Law Enforcement Team led classroom discussions and hands-on sessions for more than 50 individuals from participating nations. The sessions focused on techniques for identifying, stopping, searching and collecting evidence from vessels suspected of trafficking drugs, weapons and other contraband.

Participants learned common ways smugglers use to hide contraband on boats, and how to identify concealment. They also handled field drug test kits used to test for illicit substances and the proper procedures that go along with testing.

The exercise included tactical movement familiarization, where participants, many from special forces commands, practiced entering and searching a ship's hull - another place smugglers use to hide illegal items. The techniques practiced have real-world applications for many of the participants.

"I learned new tactics and new ideas on searching the hull of a vessel. Most importantly was how to search a suspect," said Nathaniel Odike, an able seaman with the Nigerian Navy.

"Contending with weapons trafficking, piracy and other militancy issues facing our navies, observing and learning about the ways criminals at sea hide weapons, and knowing what to look for is something that is important to me in my job," Odike added.

Twenty nations are participating in Obangame Express 2014 including Angola, Belgium, Benin, Brazil, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, France, Gabon, Germany, Ghana, The Netherlands, Nigeria, Portugal, Republic of Congo, Sao Tome & Principe, Spain, Togo, Turkey and the United States.
