Estonia has opened its airspace for the US Air Force exercises

Estonia has opened the country's airspace for the US military, giving the United States the right to conduct aviation training over the territory of the republic. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Estonia.


Estonian Defense Minister Juri Luik, who is on a working visit to Washington, at a meeting with US Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett, said that the American aviation can freely use the airspace of the republic for various exercises.

We work closely with our Baltic and Polish colleagues to achieve better information and a warning system in the airspace of the region

- He said, adding that in Tallinn they attach particular importance to joint US exercises.

The Estonian Minister of Defense paid particular attention to the US Defender Europe 2020 exercises launched in the Baltic republics and Poland, in which the US Army relocates significant forces from America to Europe and said that these exercises allow Estonia to work out the issues of the regional command of the Northern Division, created jointly with Latvia and Denmark.

Luik also met with US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, at which the parties discussed further cooperation between the countries and the “Russian threat”.

As a result, the parties came to the conclusion that Russia poses the main threat to NATO, since "it has significant forces on the border with the Baltic republics."

    "Mr. Cardinal and I are a great force," said the haberdasher proudly. Sorry, I do not remember literally.

      Personally, I'm not sorry. Such popular phrases in cultural people should bounce off the teeth.

      Well, what are you, well, somehow you are not so glamorous. Of course, 'news', that's just about 20 years of history. The Baltic states opened their airspace milking the nat / amers before the second war in the bay. Placed the link of the Nata fighters, probably for beauty. Not a quarter of a century has passed and a miracle: they decided to beautifully inform the press .... haberdashery and cardinal - here you need to tremble laughing
      You're certainly right

    Apparently, the Estonians invented the "Elixir of Immortality"? And they accepted him together ... now they can take Amer aviation 200 km from St. Petersburg. In the case of a mess, their "it" will not affect ...

    Estonia opens airspace for US Air Force exercises
    How pathetic and solemn. You would think that they would suddenly have doubts. Although whoever asked them, therefore, they followed the diplomatic procedure.
    security issues, including Russia and the immediate threat it poses to the Baltic countries
    Something I do not understand these NATO members. Just the other day, another American general loudly declared that Russia was not going to attack the Baltic states. So there is no again the old song for the motive for the repose.

    The leaders discussed issues of mutual interest regarding the future of NATO and security issues, including Russia and the immediate threat it poses to the Baltic countries
    But the people in Estonia do not even know about any threats from Russia. Every day, several dozen buses carry people from Estonia to Russia and from Russia to Estonia, and no one sees the threat.

    The United States has long been present on the territory of (historical) Russia. Since Port Arthur, Russia has been "focusing." She concentrated to such an extent that Kaliningrad could not be reached.
