What it all amounts to is that Russia has the tools at it's disposal to deny NATO air superiority for a short while. Enough time to move some ground
troops a few hundred kilometers and to bring up some of those fancy-schmancy s300 & s400 SAMs to protect them when NATO counter punches. Certainly not
a cut and dried victory over NATO, but I don't think that would matter much to Poland, FInland or the Baltics.
