It is worth noting that the number of Estonian Armed Forces is 5,5 thousand people. In the world ranking of military power, this country ranks 108 line. At the same time, according to the plans of the Estonian government, the budget of the army should be increased by as much as 2,5 billion euros. This is truly a fantastic amount for such a small country, which lives on subsidies from the European Union. For additional subsidies, in particular, it is planned to maim the size of the army by 15%, that is, to recruit more 800 people.
Such a formidable roar of the Baltic hamster to Russia is also explained by the fact that right now NATO forces are conducting training exercises on the territory of the country called “Hedgehog 2018”. In order to further express their serious intentions, the Estonian Ministry of Defense announced the call of reservists, as a result of which the ranks of the Armed Forces temporarily filled up the 80 people.
