Joint naval exercises of Britain and the Baltic countries kicked off in the Baltic Sea

Naval exercises of the Baltic countries and the Royal Navy of Great Britain started in the Baltic Sea. This was reported by the press service of the Estonian Defense Ministry.


The exercises are taking place as part of the cooperation of the Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF), created under the auspices of Britain in 2014 after the return of Crimea to Russia.

The exercises from Britain include frigates Lancaster and Westminster, as well as the supply ship Tiderace, from the Latvian Navy - the patrol ship Jelgava, the Lithuanian Navy - the minesweeper Selis and the support ship Jotvingis of the Lithuanian Navy, the Estonian Navy - the warship Wambola. Sweden sent a helicopter to participate in the exercises.

The first joint naval operation of the Joint Expeditionary Force showed that the British are ready to work side by side with their Baltic allies

- said British Secretary of Defense Ben Wallace.

During the exercise, it is planned to work out anti-aircraft, anti-ship and anti-submarine protection of sea communications, as well as escort and protection of transport ships. In addition, combat firing and landing on the coast are planned. Joint exercises are aimed at "containing" who or what is not explained.

(...) Joint Expeditionary Force naval operations support "containment" at sea, just as the British-led NATO battle group in Estonia supports "containment" on land

- added the Deputy Commander of the Estonian Defense Forces, Major General Indrek Sirel.

    I wonder why this gentleman is not in this teaching of the most ardent Russophobes. The Swedes also allocated a helicopter.

        But seriously, they decided to muddy the water around Fortuna, trying to slow down the SP-2 as much as possible.

      This red herring is simple. The mighty Polish fleet in heavy and bloody battles breaks through to Kaliningrad.))

          Anti-submarine exercises? Against who? We have only one submarine in the Baltic. There is not even Baby, on which Kuzmich went to the islands for berries.

      For the recoupment of the Baltic pip gas pipeline, you need a gas from the Nord Stream 2. Fortune modet a distribution unit for it and do not put it down!

      The Poles realized that even they had nothing to do there, and even spend "pennies" on a senseless venture.

    Now, when a landing from the extinctions of all three lands on the coast of England, and from the field, then you can believe in a kind of "brotherhood in the name, and even in the name of the patronymic", and here the Angilik girls poke their snouts into other people's affairs, hiding behind phrases about help infirm, that is, about help to defend against "Russian aggression" - another Anglican brains are not able to invent, the same nonsense from colonialists and swindlers!

    So they always need more than anyone else. Where they did not run their playful hands and long nose.

    Britain and the countries are limitrophes "allies", and there was a time when "Rule Britain, rule the seas", and now they have sunk to the Balts. The "queen of the seas" is getting smaller.

    It's like hunting a tiger and a mouse together. Balts can only imitate pirates in exercises.

    Strategically and tactically, it is more profitable to transform the fleets into a single whole with the construction of bases in the Arctic Ocean. With their drinking in three parts in two directions, the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.
