Russia’s plans for stealth invasion of Baltic states unveiled on state TV | World | News
A former Russian general staff and air force officer has detailed a potential scenario for Russia to invade the Baltic states using a map while appearing on TV. This news comes as NATO soldiers took part in military exercises near the Russian border.
Colonel Igor Korochenko explained the plan using a map as a guide, saying, “This is what the scenario of capturing the Baltics might look like.
“A massive Russian radio-electronic strike is inflicted…[causing] all NATO radars [to] become blind and see nothing.
“Right now, on the Swedish island of Gotland, Russian military aircraft are landing delivering S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems and Bastion coastal anti-ship systems.
“They’re deployed – and right now nobody knows or sees anything.
“The West asks: ‘Why don’t we see anything? What happened to our radars? »
While Sweden has traditionally been a neutral power, it is possible that Russia will try to seize strategically placed Gotland in order to help gain control of the Baltic.
The colonel then explained that the Russians would push from the Kaliningrad enclave towards the Suwalki corridor so that Poland would not be able to provide reinforcements.
He went on to describe the plan: “The astonished West and NATO will know that Russia declares a 400 km no-fly zone.

There are now fears that Putin is trying to regain control there as he is trying to do in Ukraine.
The TV program with the invasion storyline first aired in Russia late last year, but was recently shared by Ukrainian government adviser Anton Gerashchenko.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid warned Putin that NATO would retaliate if he threatened the alliance.
Mr Javid told Sky News: ‘If a single tip from a Russian soldier enters NATO territory, it would be war with NATO.’
