NATO International Battalion in Lithuania replenished 300 French


The whole contingent has arrived
- M.Marno said, adding that four were also delivered to Lithuania tank Leclerc and nine VBCI infantry fighting vehicles, as well as other equipment.

The French will form one of the maneuver companies in the NATO battalion stationed in Lithuania last year, and will also serve in combat support units, in the battalion headquarters.

After the arrival of the French in the NATO battalion in Lithuania, more than 1200 military will serve. The command of the battalion stationed in Rukla is carried out by Germany; it also includes Belgians, Croats, Luxembourgers, Dutch and Norwegians.

The international NATO battalions in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland were stationed last year. The Alliance calls this a response to Russia's aggression in Ukraine and the increased military activity of the Russian Federation in the Baltic Sea region.

      They don’t croak anyway - winter. The Lithuanians cheated and invited the French in the winter, when the frogs sniff under a layer of ice. lol

          Well, yes, nothing to the brave French: the tanks will break the ice and pick out not quite thin frogs. That's why there came as many as four Leclerc. wassat

        And what about people, especially in NATO, especially not far from Russia? What is the motivation that drives them? What are they ready to die for in case of conflict?

          ... You know, it seems to me the most prosaic thing is money ... people are ready to kill each other for them ... unfortunately ...

            They kill for money, and die for their homeland, I apologize for the pathos, but it is.

          They do what they are ordered to do. But who ordered it - and what they have in mind, a question — don’t think. Are you "there" behind the hill everything is so stupid and they send 300 Spartans just for nothing, with nothing to do ..?

    It also includes Belgians, Croats, Luxembourgers, Dutch and Norwegians
    Each creature in pairs. Now they were also diluted with the French. The Lithuanians take out national clothes from the chests and are preparing to meet with the hot French guys, whose great-grandfathers also tried to fight with Russia at the time and were killed a little south-west of Lithuania.

      Not a topic, but still: in our country in western Belarus during the war of 1812, the French lodged in villages and villages, hence the French surnames are not rare among the inhabitants there. My ex-wife has a surname - Shavel, her mother's girlhood - Shako.

        as far as I know, they haven’t lodged. they were prisoners. they were distributed in the villages. then they married local girls and stayed

              Oh, Sergey, it's a pity I can’t get to the document I personally saw that confirms the marriage. Who and what was registered there, so the groom was registered there as a soldier of the French army, I definitely won’t give the style - I saw this document once in 2007 ...

                Pavel, I don’t argue. I only say that he could not marry while standing. who would allow him? because they came as conquerors, what kind of marriages are there. and being a prisoner, please. and correctly he wrote who he is. he was a soldier of the french army

    Are there many ethnic French in that company? Usually in such operations, usually the Foreign Legion is involved, and there can be anyone.
