Military Review

German users are perplexed over the introduction of Ukrainian paratroopers into the American regiment during exercises in Bavaria

57

The international exercise "Saber Junction-2020" has begun in Germany. The exercises, which are held at the Hoefels military base on the territory of the federal state of Bavaria, involve servicemen from 17 states, including Ukraine.


From the Ukrainian side, servicemen of the 2020th separate airborne assault brigade of the airborne assault troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine take part in "Saber Junction-80". This brigade is deployed in the Lviv region of Ukraine.

It is noteworthy that the soldiers who arrived in Germany to participate in the maneuvers were initially placed on a two-week observation in connection with the coronavirus threat. Now the quarantine measures have been completed and the exercise has started.



Ukrainian paratroopers are trained in theory and practice in the use of NATO weapons, including small arms weapon... However, the main activities during the maneuvers that have begun are carried out by the Ukrainian military with the weapons that they brought with them. These are Kalashnikov assault rifles, SVD sniper rifles.

The main phase of the exercise involves the entry of paratroopers from the 80th airborne brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine into the 503rd regiment of the 173rd airborne brigade of the US Army. This brigade remains in Germany, while about 12 thousand American servicemen of other units from the FRG, as you know, are being withdrawn.

German users express their bewilderment at the fact that the Ukrainian military is participating in the exercises on German territory. This bewilderment is due to two reasons. First, as noted, Ukraine is not a NATO member and is unlikely to become one in the medium term. Secondly, during the exercise, the Ukrainian paratroopers became part of the American airborne regiment. Germany expressed caution, asking the question: is Washington going to replace the contingent withdrawn from the FRG with "non-NATO partners"?

      For the role of "Capo", from the German "Kazetpolizei"- (an employee of the concentration camp auxiliary police) in the narrow sense, the prisoners appointed to fulfill the positions of the headman of the barrack, the warden, the senior working team are quite suitable yes .

        The kapos sit in the shade, and the grunting Sumerians in the sun. Nothing less than NATO standards. In SA, if everyone does not fit in the shade, then there was a commander in the sun, and facing the wind too, and so on. And in this case, it would be possible to accommodate everyone with comfort, but it seems that everyone knows about the Sumerians, they need to be put into the stall right away. negative

    And the excitement is not groundless, especially when you consider Trump's attitude towards Germany (read Merkel) and his readiness for any prank. Any international formalities, if necessary, the Americans can push through elementary. If this happened, which is unlikely, the Germans would have experienced all the delights of the "Ukrainian kata" that they have been fond of all this time.

    IMHO, the Russian Federation just do not care about these maneuvers.
    Everything that can practically attack us, we practically repel.

    The problem is that the answer we can give will be very harsh ... not even harsh, cruel or something .. what
    The Russian Federation can destroy any European country (for example) in hours. Everyone is well aware of this.
    The more NATO (read the US) is pumping, the more likely Russia will be forced to respond.
    The situation is, of course, stupid. For example, Poland, we can do it with our "hands" without "hands" ... but in fact we cannot do anything to them recourse

    This is the main problem of Russia, a power that it is not clear how to use.
    Unless by political methods ... but this has nothing to do with the Armed Forces

    German users (apparently the Internet?) Are "perplexed" for any reason, how convenient it is to whom. Here in September, over Bavaria, the maneuvers of the German and Israeli air forces begin. At least half of the mixed squadron Hel ha'Avir will arrive, min. 12 cars with Magendavids, in response to the "Blue Flag" in Israel. We are waiting for real "perplexedly" frightened burghers, and not unknown "users" laughing
