NATO permanent group exercises to be held in Latvia

Despite the pandemic of the coronavirus, NATO does not intend to reduce the number of exercises conducted near the Russian borders. The next maneuvers will take place in Latvia. This was reported on the website of the National Armed Forces.


According to the message, the exercises under the name Steel Brawler will be held from April 13 to 18 in the Daugavpils region at the Mezha Matskevichi training ground. They will be attended by about 600 troops from the NATO permanent group and the Latvian armed forces stationed in Latvia, as well as about 100 pieces of military equipment.

The main goal of the exercises is to improve the coherence of the actions of the NATO and the Latvian army permanent group.

The Ministry of National Defense of Latvia issued a warning that between April 13 and 18, the Adazi military base - the Mezha Matskevichi training ground - base in Adazi will be moving military equipment.

Recall that the NATO permanent group in Latvia includes military personnel from Albania, the Czech Republic, Italy, Canada, Montenegro, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain, for a total of about 1400 people.

Earlier it was reported that in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, the joint command of NATO in Europe revised the program of exercises, reducing their scale and changing the format. It was stated that there would not be a complete abolition of the exercises, especially on the "eastern flank" of the alliance.

    you look there, so that the "eastern flank" for
    NATO groups in Latvia - military personnel from Albania, the Czech Republic, Italy, Canada, Montenegro, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain
    It didn’t become, as for the Germans, in the Great Patriotic War a fear and a terrible fate - to get to the "Eastern Front".

      Well, Putin can’t get used to it - he was already worse than Ebola ... Obama confirmed.
      But the plague in Europe in the Middle Ages is not Putin, is it? What does Europe say about this?

      Satan is sitting in hell and nervously smoking bamboo - waiting for Putin to be worse than him. Yesterday on CNN they said ... laughing

    Recall that the NATO permanent group in Latvia includes military personnel from Albania, the Czech Republic, Italy, Canada, Montenegro, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain,

    It’s amazing how the French and Spaniards couldn’t get away, not to mention the Canadians? Or is there such a "contingent" that is not a pity? And in the light of the statement of Anton Gutieras, the rotation does not shine for them ...

    Yes let’s learn health. The result is still the same, in which case - they will blow “Tornadoes and” Hurricanes, and then stupidly tanks, after three hours there will be no country .. And NATO will simply piss. Do not dare.
    I’m not a "Hooray patriot, I just judge the quality and quantity.

      Yes, there the country is so vast that after a good blow the tanks have nothing to do there - to rub tracks in the desert-ashes?

    Is our? the government decided to send a parcel to Latgale, calls on everyone to stay at home, violators are fined, and then there are 600 soldiers. We still have less than 10 patients with the virus. After these exercises, something can change, because they will be fed and wiped by asses by local dignitaries. Although the people are indignant, they are useless.

    And if Cho happens, how will this hodgepodge fight? Well, all of them neither in Russian nor in the English language really understand. And everything is different for everyone, starting from the governing documents and ending with footcloths.

    Probably the most responsible mission was entrusted to Latvians, the NATO military will walk and drive along the road with shampoo.

    These exercises are already causing great irritation to the local population. It is possible that foreign warriors will set fire to grass or forests, as in Adazi.
