Estonian television reported that last week the authorities sent a party to Iraq weapons and ammunition to combat the "Islamic State".

Iraq received a batch of lethal weapons from Estonia


“In this way, the government responded to Iraq’s request for help. Estonia sent old weapons and Soviet-made ammunition that were not in compliance with NATO and the Estonian Defense Forces standards to Iraq, which are in the warehouses of the Defense Forces, ”quotes a message from the RIA message "News".

At the request of the Iraqi authorities, Estonia handed over 12 Soviet 120-mm mortars, 140 machine guns to the RPD, 66 Chinese AK-56, 44 Romanian AKMS and 230 TT pistols, and 21 to a thousand rounds.

The decision of the Estonian government to support Iraq is dictated by a resolution of the EU Foreign Affairs Council of 15 in August 2014, which allowed the supply of weapons along with humanitarian assistance to stabilize the security situation and strengthen the capabilities of the Iraqi security forces in the fight against the Islamic State militants.

          The main thing in this message is that these weapons defiantly did not hit the Nazis in Ukraine on the Nazis. And they will not kill Russian people from it.
          And the junta will send the next expired dry packs and the same sprats. Yes, and also in the form of humanitarian aid - textbooks of the Latvian language.

      I wonder where the Chinese machine guns come from.
      Although this may just be a mistake, again the journalists scolded (this time over the GRAU index: 56-A-212 - 7,62-mm Kalashnikov AK assault rifle). And the Chinese is still not "AK", but "Type".

          Particularly touching - it's 21 thousand rounds of ammunition, that’s enough for a long time, help is simply not appreciable - God bless you, it’s not good for us.

    Estonia sent old weapons and ammunition to warehouses of the Defense Forces in Iraq Soviet sample ... 66 Chinese AK-56, 44 assault rifles romanian AKMS assault rifle and 230 TT pistols ...

    Chinese and Romanian machine guns were in service with the Soviet Army? Well, it’s necessary ... I won’t be surprised if TT is also a Chinese counterfeit.

    Estonians just checked in. And now they will blow that they have made a considerable contribution to the fight against ISIS. They gave the last, and how will they arm their militia (partisans)? Again, they hope that Uncle Sam will throw a new weapon, given their contribution.

    And you thought that the population there is 1 people, our cities are larger, these are mini states with a higher mortality rate than the birth rate of the indigenous population, if not refugees from Africa die, and there is a chance to see a real black Estonian in the 312rd generation))). And with weapons, it’s somehow poor with our bandits in the 252s there was more and, according to decency, they did not exchange for Chinese.
