Pentagon representatives familiarized themselves with the Estonian defense system

49
The commander of the Estonian Defense Forces, Riho Terrace, yesterday introduced the Pentagon’s delegation, consisting of 17 generals and admirals, to the Estonian national defense system, reports RIA News message of the military department of the country.




The American delegation arrived on a X-day visit on Tuesday in the framework of the Capstone project, which includes studying the issues of national security and foreign policy of a number of allies. Earlier, a representative delegation visited Moldova and Ukraine.

“We chose Estonia for our visit, since this country is both the eastern border of NATO and a member of the alliance, whose activity is an example for other states of the alliance”,
said the delegation leader Michael Cairns.

“The completed visits to Ukraine and Moldova gave a good overview of the various threats to national security for various European countries,” said Cairns. - It should be noted that, although the three countries have similar problems, each of them has chosen its own way to overcome them. This vision and understanding will help the generals in the future to better assess the global situation and better do their work. ”

It is also reported that on Wednesday, “US generals met with Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas, Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand, and Chairman of the Parliamentary Commission on National Defense Marko Mihkelson and visited the NATO Cyber ​​Defense Center in Tallinn.”

      Laughs are not appropriate here. Any escalation of tension on our border is fraught. And 2 tanks can provoke a big conflict

          Earlier, a representative delegation visited Moldova and Ukraine.

          NATO generals were able to organize a small "tour" around "Europe". A cheerful friendly team. And it doesn't matter that at the expense of taxpayers ... The main thing is that? The main thing is to examine the threat up close, so to speak. With my own eyes. With a keen gaze directed to the east. And you must have considered this very "threat". How can it be without it ...

            And another direction was opened for the uncontrolled infusion of great American rubles. Work there is no end. At the same time, the great Estonian wall can be forgotten. And in the wall of this, money can be laid nemeryanno, the experience of close neighbors to help them.

    Looking for a place to deploy another tank brigade? After all, threats are everywhere, and the Estonian defense system is not responding. Not responsible for anything at all. And then aggressive Russia is nearby, and there are already combat aircraft in the woods and ravines lurking.
    Apparently, soon to wait for the strengthening of the NATO contingent in the Baltic states. Another one.
