"Why are they dressed randomly?" Western users surprised by the Estonian system of reservists

The Estonian Ministry of Defense previously published photographs from the ceremony of presenting commemorative badges for reservists who were called up for military training. The ceremony took place at one of the Estonian military bases and attracted the attention of Estonia's NATO partners.


After the publication of the photographs, users from Western NATO countries drew attention to the lineup of people awarded with commemorative badges.

Words of surprise are expressed at the Estonian system, in which the reservists present stand both in military uniforms and without them. Particular attention was drawn to the people who are in the central part of the formation in a T-shirt and shorts.


A few comments:

Does this mean that the Estonian guys themselves perceive the military training as an easy summer walk?

Why are they dressed anyhow?

Maybe they didn't have enough military uniforms.

It is also noted that in the Estonian system they are not in height, but the awarding itself “resembles a school event”.

    If this suits Estonian commanders and military commanders, then why should it surprise others?
    It is more surprising that in the ranks of the reservists there are obviously only young people who seem to be no more than 30 ... That's what you need to look at, and their bearing is good, everything is athletic ...

      A reservist is a "partisan", and he is a "partisan" in Estonia too.

          Probably there are users on the site who remember the fees in the CA? Remember their gymnastics from the Great Patriotic War and other ammunition. Here everything is from poverty, from a low defense budget.
          I am surprised, why do they need an army in general? Is it possible that someone conceived of conquering the freedom-loving Estonians, and they are capable of fighting back?

        It is strange that the parade in Minsk did not raise such questions from Western bloggers - there a whole "box" marched in different clothes, with different weapons, and some in caps and beards!
        By the way, if any of us, now civilians, are called to the military registration and enlistment office or (Hallelujah!) To the Ministry of Defense, also to appear in the form of the last statutory sample? I have only "parade", "Afghan" and "birch". I will also be "in whatever".

          Well, it was a box of Belarusian partisans, the main problem was with the preparation for the Parade, it was to teach them not to hear music and not to keep pace.
          if any of us, now civilians, are summoned to the military enlistment office or (hallelujah!) to the Ministry of Defense

          This disadvantage goes away over time. It's easier for me, I have already been deregistered and the "parade" only for my last event in my life.

              There is no parade structure. We don't hold parades.
              There are no marching columns either. They are brought to the line of hostilities.
              And then - two "snakes" along the roadside. Keeping intervals.
              Have you seen the Houthis fighting? So it looks like us.
