        Ukraine fell into that camp because the West pays for the exercises, and the state is not a penny.

    It would be more correct to call the exercise "Shitty Arch-2012"!

    The spectators acted, the older pale-faced Brother entrusted. Fighters from Ukraine, Lithuania and Poland, with weapons and without an overseer? Given the historically "warm and friendly" relationship, could very negative precedents be created ....

      Well, why, the Polish-Ukrainian battalion POLUKRBAT lasted 12 years, with 10 of them performing peacekeeping functions in Kosovo. In 2010 it was disbanded as unnecessary.

      But with the Polish-Lithuanian-Ukrainian peacekeeping brigade LitPolUkrbrig, which was supposed to be stationed in Lublin and participate in international peacekeeping missions of the UN, EU and NATO, a powerful hitch came out. The agreement was signed in 2009, but things are still there.

    I was glad for the Slavic brothers. Look at the friendly European family under the supervision of Canada. How not to rejoice? Today - "Iron Wolf", tomorrow - "Iron Donkey". Sincerely.

      Good evening to everyone! I live not far from the Shirokolanovsky training ground. I don’t share the opinions of many, I think you should only welcome such exercises! You need to know both tactics and equipment and staff, etc. etc. Potential * friends * do not care, but we will come in handy!

    Good evening all!

    In vain you, someone "minus"!

    That's right, it's time for shapkozidatelstva, should have already passed. You cannot reveal secrets in joint exercises, but tactics, support system, interaction, level of training, etc. you can estimate - even if not everyone will show. After all, not only Ukraine is involved. Isn't Russia conducting joint exercises with a "potential enemy"?

    Another question is that Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania are being treated with the help of Canada (less "dust" than it would be if the exercises were held under the tutelage of the United States). After all, the relations of these countries are not entirely rosy, and the West is all hoping for historical justice, about the "great Polish-Lithuanian barrier", I do not want to call it a state. Here's the truth, the role of Ukraine is defined, as always (look at history) - to drag chestnuts out of the fire for the West.
