Belgian soldiers of the NATO mission freeze in Estonia

Belgian military personnel participating in the NATO mission in Estonia are afraid of frostbite due to the lack of proper winter clothing, said the head of the ACMP army union Roger Ussen, the newspaper writes De Standaard.


Belgian soldiers of the NATO mission freeze in Estonia


According to Roger Ussen, the Belgian army sent to Estonia in the framework of a NATO mission to strengthen the presence, 270 military personnel, equipping them with inadequate winter uniforms. Belgian soldiers were given 1950 balaclava year of release, army boot covers, unsuitable for boots, and also did not put the required number of protective glasses. The operation to maintain the NATO mission was planned a year ago, but during this time the Belgian Defense Ministry was unable to acquire the necessary winter equipment.

Although at present the temperature in Estonia does not fall below zero degrees, the Belgian army soldiers fear that the temperature will drop below 30 degrees, and this threatens life and health.

The threat of frostbite
- said the head of the army union ACMP Roger Ussen

Meanwhile, the Belgian Defense Ministry has already been assured that in the near future the cargo with winter uniforms for the Belgian troops of the NATO contingent will go to Estonia.

        Miserable poor things. The rearcars did not deliver points to them.
        Points are of course the most necessary thing in winter!
        I remember in 1978 in Estonia -40C was how to fight here without glasses?
        Request a sheepskin coat and boots from the warehouse of the National Defense of the Soviet Army This is for you warriors, a hint is free.

    Belgian soldiers issued 1950 balaclavas
    According to legend, during the Crimean War, British army soldiers were so cold under the Crimean city of Balaklava that they came up with a knitted hat with the same name. The winter of 1854-1855 was very cold, and most of the British troops did not receive winter uniforms, shelter and food during the winter.
    It seems that history is repeating itself.
