"Russian threat" made British soldiers in Estonia climb to the waist in the snow

42
The British military in Estonia, despite the bitter cold, were forced to take part in the “Winter Camp” exercise, the purpose of which was to repel “Russian aggression,” the Daily Star newspaper writes.




In the Estonian forests rumbled Tanksand the soldiers of the 1st Battalion of the Royal Welsh Infantry Regiment with their NATO allies fought to the victory,
leads the article InoTV.

The newspaper notes that during the exercise, the British servicemen showed themselves “ready to attack and defense” in Eastern Europe.

As the newspaper reminds, “NATO and Russia still remain on knives,” accusing each other of “aggression” and sending their troops to the Baltic States one by one.

Thus, Russia “last week sent missile systems capable of carrying nuclear warheads to Kaliningrad, causing NATO to be nervous with this step,” the author writes.

According to him, "the camp in which British forces are stationed is just 80 km from the Russian border in the Estonian city of Tapa."

It is reported that "two Challenger tanks and Warrior infantry fighting vehicles" took part in the exercise. The soldiers "had to wade through the snow to the waist-deep and sleep in tents at a temperature of -19 ℃," the publication says.

According to the officers, “this was a great test,” since the British were accustomed to a more temperate climate.

We are here to demonstrate to any potential aggressor that NATO is an efficient military force, ready to cope with a number of threats,
declared the Royal Welsh Major Darren Hughes.

Sander Saarik, lieutenant of the scout battalion of the Estonian armed forces, agrees with him:

We do not worry that Russia will attack us tomorrow. However, the danger of the situation in Ukraine shows that this is an opportunity or inevitability for which we must prepare.


As British Minister of Defense Gavin Williamson stated in Estonia, “The United Kingdom must abide by its obligations to counter the growing aggression against Britain and its allies on the part of the Russian state.”

This threat is real, and it is already on our doorstep. We should not underestimate the damage that Russia can cause,
quoted by the newspaper of the British Minister.

          Anecdote:
          In the evening, in a small town, two Estonians go home from work, they went to a bar along the way, and it was not usual quiet there. The men ordered a beer and ask:
          "And where are the NATO soldiers who usually drink and make noise here?"
          Bartender: "There are no more of them, the Russians captured us, you see - the Russian flag hangs at the city hall!"
          Guys: "How? When? We were at work and didn’t hear anything!"
          Bartender: “In the morning, someone shouted:“ The Russians are coming! ”- NATO evacuated its soldiers, our mayor hung the Russian flag, and the Russians have not yet appeared”

    despite the severe frost

    Yes, there are no “fierce” frosts there, but the humidity is high and therefore a little frost can already be equated with a fierce one. Did Estonians squeeze the Britam ski as usual? Or have not realized yet?

      Maybe they would, but everyone (ski) was sent to the Olympic Games together with the team. But NATO did not fork out for an extra pair.

    If they don’t “blame” them in time, then Russia will have to get used to the harsh climate still very long. The Wehrmacht also did not plan to get used to our climate, especially after the victorious Drung nah Ost.

    To the British, such things are only high. They have almost the entire army - special forces from volunteers.
    The British are a nation of extreme ascetics and masochists.
    But when the Americans (Latinos and blacks) last winter in Estonia.
    forced to work through the ice under a frozen lake - funny faces
    they were !!! belay

        Take a look, see how in winter their schoolchildren in shorts and shirts
        with short sleeves go. And in schools and homes they drown
        in winter only up to 16-18 degrees. So used, and continue.

    horror - even Russians in tents maintain positive temperatures with at least primitive bourgeois stoves! You can’t freeze the Royal Welshman eggs at night!

    all the same, funny people are these British, Germans and others who are preparing to confront the fictitious Russian threat, while their own countries are being captured by migrants ... one fine day, such a British soldier will return from a business trip to some Estonia, and at home, a bearded uncle will open the door for him and say: "Listen, who are you, come from here, now your house, my house, your wife, my fifth wife ..."

    quoted by the British Minister’s newspaper. "--- On whose doorstep?! - Russia is at home. The Kingdom of glucomaniacs, non-traditionalists - besides their" economy ", they have nothing to lose, and why it is necessary for them. The main masochists - they know what capable of Russia.

    And in the Subpolar Urals in March. There, the snow on the skis sticks to 20 pounds each, and you jump from the skis - you leave the top of the head in the snow, and not this one. Well, you get the point ...

    A rare fool. Russians have long had heated tents, snowmobiles, and skis. At least they asked their friends of the Norwegians how to act in polar conditions. For sure, give a fool a glass device, he will break it and cut his hands.

    Far from primitive. Now even a monthly gathering is carried out with such a tent life. By the way, they would take the famous bearish high hats. laughing

    They had already played there before that they could not distinguish reality from fiction. It is good to repel aggression knowing that no one is going to attack. But themselves, they are unlikely to decide to cross the border, especially if such banners are placed along it

    This threat is real only in your head, but what Russia is capable of is the years 1812, and especially 1945 ... It’s a pity that they didn’t take you out of Europe then, “allies”!
