        In Estonia, as in Greece, everything is there. At least for motorized infantry it’s compact, but here the main emphasis is on providing the Allied armies, which are the main shock fist. As with the same Apaches, Estonian aircraft guides train at their own training ground, and take internship courses in German.

      The jokes are over! Concentration of dry units, air force and armored units on the territory. Baltic countries have recently been a concern. I think that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation grazes the situation, and is taking respectively. Steps. Talked with our army team, who are still in the service, they say: we also look ...

    But it’s interesting, if Sergei Kuzhugetovich is given so much money for “sudden checks” as these clowns for flights-build-banquets (not to mention the exercises themselves) spend what will happen?
    And I answer to myself - why then check something? Homosexuals under the baseboard and beating a shame on a warrior. And it’s not at all “ur-ry!” . So, we think at leisure, on Victory Day. angry
