US-NATO Military Convoy of Tanks at Russia’s Doorstep

By Joost Niemöller

On the video below you can see a long column of military vehicles, including tanks and armored cars. This column, according to the caption, was filmed on 23 February in the border city of Narva, Estonia,That city is located on a reservoir that provides St. Petersburg [electric] power.

Video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLUiYaNcfkk – 06:27 min — Танки и бронетехника, военный конвой под флагами США. Нарва. Эстония, 23.02.2015

What is striking about these images is that this military convoy is openly displayed to the public.

Some vehicles are harboring US flags. The convoy is crossing the city [of Narva within less than a kilometer  from the Russian border]. It can be filmed by anybody. [Note the picture below, Estonia on the left.  Russia on the right on the other side of the bridge.

It is a sign of military superiority.

You can imagine how Putin might feel in this regard, [a US-NATO convoy] close to his former power base of Saint Petersburg. That might well be the underlying intent [of this military convoy].

This may be part of a major NATO exercise to be held in the area. The Netherlands is also involved. 

Of course, NATO military exercises can occur anywhere. But why specifically are they taking place in Estonia [at Russia’s doorstep]? And why are they displaying American flags right on the Russian border? And why now, with the resurgence of war in Ukraine?

According to NATO, Putin has a destabilizing influence in the Baltics, and the Cold war is increasingly becoming a Hot War.
