Britain creates a "European expeditionary corps" with the involvement of the Armed Forces of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia

65
Estonian Defense Minister Hannes Hansoo expressed strong support for the initiative of NATO colleagues to create the so-called joint expeditionary force of individual countries of the North Atlantic Alliance. This is a joint armed association that will affect the military personnel of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Britain, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands. Reports about it RIA News. The main initiator of the creation of such a structure is Britain.


Britain creates a "European expeditionary corps" with the involvement of the Armed Forces of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia

Estonian Minister of Defense


The Memorandum of Understanding for the creation of an expeditionary corps from among the military personnel of the aforementioned countries was signed the day before in London. During the signing, it was reported that the corps would allow “taking appropriate measures to prevent conflicts and assist in case of crisis situations”. It does not specify who exactly the British-Estonian-Lithuanian-Danish (and so on) expeditionary corps is going to help, and why such a military association of “like-minded people” like NATO is no longer suitable for performing similar tasks.

The press service of the Estonian Ministry of Defense quotes the Minister as follows:
The expeditionary corps will include about 10 ths. Military personnel. For us it is important to continue close military cooperation with the army of Great Britain, with which we have been under fire for eight years in southern Afghanistan. Also, JEF (English abbreviation of the same body) meets today's security challenges, for which we need more rapid reaction forces.


At the same time, Hanso said that the Estonian contribution to the creation of the corps "will be significant."

          It looks stupid, it’s still half the trouble, but what heresy they carry, this is the trouble! The worst thing is that, in Europe, because anyone who is appointed as defense ministers, but not military professionals, the worst can happen, WAR! Because for such Pokémon, war is a computer toy, they killed, I’ll reboot ..., but in fact there will be no reboots!

        The story of a Russian with Estonian citizenship. My daughter is studying at an Estonian school. Recently, about a year ago, the attitude of teachers and schoolchildren has changed. They began to fawn more. Wondered why? They answered.
        - You are lucky, you are RUSSIAN. When yours come to capture the Baltic States, they will not kill you, but they will destroy us all.

    The Balts think, probably, that these troops are created to protect themselves from the "imperial ambitions of Russia" invented by them. In fact, the Anglo-Saxons need cannon fodder for operations in the unstable regions of the Middle East and Afghanistan. They themselves do not want to die under the contract.
    I think that the enthusiasm of the Baltic states will drop dramatically when coffins from Afghanistan, Iraq and other hot spots begin to return instead of soldiers.

    Once at a diplomatic reception at Alexander the Third-Peacemaker, at dinner, the Austro-Hungarian diplomat said that if Russia supposedly did not leave the Balkans alone, then Austria-Hungary would put forward its infantry corps. The All-Russian Emperor picked up a bronze fork, wrapped a finger in a ring and threw it on an Austrian plate. "That's what I will do with your case!" said the Russian tsar.

      Really helped. As punitive units. However, Latvians are the most punitive punishers. Especially if expeditions were carried out against the ethnically Russian population. It’s in their blood. And the division of V.O. Kappel was captured by them before the Soviet regime during the capture of Kazan in August 1918, where the "Latvian arrows" guarded the gold reserves of Russia.
