The armed forces of Latvia cannot recruit the required number of military personnel due to the common dental diseases in the republic, reports REGNUM message from the Internet portal Delfi.


Massive caries prevents Latvia from manning the armed forces


According to the Commander of the National Armed Forces (NAF) of Latvia Leonid Kalnins, many residents of the republic have problems with their teeth and oral hygiene.

According to him, "the proportion of people with bad teeth who intend to serve in the army sometimes reaches 40%."

Such recruits are temporarily denied employment. The armed forces first treat their teeth at their own expense,
Kalnins explained.

Currently, the professional NBC has 5 thousand people. This represents 70% of the required number of 6,5 thousand people.

The resource reminds that the Latvian army is recruited by volunteers - men and women older than 18 years. At the same time, citizens of the republic have the right to perform military service at any age.

    And there’s nothing to roll on the Russians, so their teeth would not hurt.

        They allied in NATO very actively "appeased", so this "ailment" - a professional - common among lovers of "interview". Apparently, the "customers" make money and toss.

        Why bite, no, not bite! It is unclear why they need teeth for this? They can already be said to be ready to meet with the vorogue))) Well, you understand me!

        I’m again afraid to upset those present: this problem was first voiced in Latvia so in '96, at a conference of the Armed Forces. Financiers complained: a large part of the budget could be spent on dentists laughing No, why are you laughing at where in the "civilized", "democratic", "European" farmer the teeth are put in order, for the first time in my life wassat

      Yeah, and hemorrhoids in the heads of Latvian politicians make it difficult to adequately assess the situation. laughing

      Personally, in the district hospital in Naro-Fominsk, the first tooth was inserted instead of the one that was knocked out on a civilian, a bottle of champagne, by the way, it hurt!

    A good loophole for draft dodgers. If the cost of treatment were affordable, then everyone would go with gypsy mouths.

    many residents of the republic have problems with teeth and oral hygiene.
    Dentists are expensive, and in general a lot of problems with teeth among young people are one of the indicators of general poor health.

      my brother, the dentist’s lieutenant, made an almost complete replacement in the district hospital, otherwise he says I’m losing qualification. but that was in the early 70s. now ... and as for the Latvian army, you can’t say armed to the teeth ... where are the teeth then?

      So I had seals for about 15 years, comrade captain Lyudmila Borisovna, God forbid, she treated her health. And recently he put the crown, the dentist goes through the channels under my tab and asks, what kind of material is this in your channels, and I tell her in the army filling and she told me the quality of the dentist in your army. So this is not Latvia for you.

      I don’t know how you are somewhere, but in Russia we have one problem with the appeal - not everyone who wants it can be called upon, because a very large percentage of professionals in the armed forces, there are less and less places for conscripts. I agree that byad ...

        This fact! The troops are equipped, not all are called up the first time.
        As in the good old days, military service is an honor and a duty, not a duty!
        To whom it has not yet reached, I am simply sorry for them!

            I only feel sorry for the children, I really don't care about the rest.
            It’s interesting to anyone, but it’s interesting for me to recall the sales ... as if the world had seen, showed itself.
            There is something to remember, especially in bad weather. mdas.

        Your understanding of the concept of injury is interesting. And if a person simply leaked the roof, then apparently there will be a philosophical or mental trauma ??? )))

          How to explain such an individual if she has indecent in her head?
          It seems that the truth is that her roof has leaked, knowing how it is going!
          And I’m not familiar with Nashen’s “classics” ... for sure, not our man.

    Come on! Just with the entry into the EU, the cost of dental treatment jumped to heaven. So the poor, if their teeth get sick, have to go to serve in the army. )))))))))))))
