Estonia sends fifty soldiers to help the French in Mali

65
The Estonian government plans to send professional military military to Mali for one year. Within the framework of the operation led by France ”Barhan” the task of the Estonian contingent will be to ensure the security of the base and its surroundings. An infantry unit on armored personnel carriers and a support unit will take part in Barkhane. The contingent will be located at the Gao field base, according to Estonian Russian-language media.


Estonia sends fifty soldiers to help the French in Mali


Prime Minister Jüri Ratas said that the decision of Estonia to contribute to the antiterrorist operation will be another example of the very successful cooperation between Estonia and France.

Defense Minister Jüri Luik said that by supporting the operation of one of the important allies, Estonia demonstrates that Estonians are not only security consumers, but also contribute to its security:

By participating in an operation whose aim is to restore stability on the southern wing of NATO and the European Union, we support our strong ally in Europe. We are also strengthening Estonia’s image as a country that is ready to contribute to security precisely where Europe faces serious risk factors.


Operation Barhan is a French-led operation in the Sahel region of Africa, whose goal is to restore stability in this territory and, as a result, to combat the sources of the terrorist threat and illegal immigration threatening Europe.

          Most likely, scouts and advanced aircraft leaders (support unit). They also ride in Afghanistan in such a composition, although they no longer participate in raids, but in combat patrols. The multinational battalion stationed in Estonia includes
          the French, so they spent this year on joint training to prepare for the “Barkhan”.

    The Estonian government is a bunch of extremely stupid people. All right, vassal obligations on NATO would be nice, but here it’s just idiocy. Soon the French will find out that the helpful one is more dangerous than the enemy.

      You won’t envy the Malian people. During the Second World War, Estonian SS punishers very effectively cleared the north-west of Russia from the population, even Himler was shocked by their atrocities. Now these are the heroes of Estonia, and these warriors are worthy successors of the affairs of grandfathers. But the paddlers will be out of work: -This is not us, these are our allies, although we are not white (in the French army more and more blacks), but fluffy.
