        they are glad that America will not leave them in trouble

        In what trouble ... if they eat from starvation they will die, (and they are not short of that) let them rejoice that they have a salary in euros, about the same as in Europe. Maybe they will even make Adolf Hitler a national hero, or maybe they still remained normal ???

      Everything is pretty relative ...
      For locals, the trend is clearly unpleasant. If you look at the scenarios of this type of exercise over the past ten years, the place of the Baltic states "in the ranks" of NATO is changing.

      Previously, they were trained on "stabilization operations". That is, they had to ensure the occupation regime in the rear, carry out punitive and counter-partisan operations. Do what traditionally suits them.

      Now they are being prepared for war in an adult way, and on their own territory. With total mobilization and involvement of reserve units such as "Home Guard". I do not think that the military of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are delighted with this ...

        Harnessed to the fullest. In World War II, they actively participated in the SS and in all small-town formations. In particular, the mass of such guard companies and battalions fought with partisans in the territory of the BSSR. These slats of freedom for handouts are ready to bury their own mother. Another exceptional difference between Latvians is their active participation in the first half of the 20th century around the world as military mercenaries.

                Instructors are not "troops" yet. I imagine the stationed troops somewhat differently.



                I’m not talking about instructors, but about the joint exercises of NATO forces and Ukrainian armed forces on the territory of Ukraine.

    It is reported that Latvia is represented on maneuvers as "combat units of the ground forces, air forces, as well as several specialized Zemäsardtse units".
    Does Latvia have an air force?

      from 1919 to 1940, the swastika was the identification mark.
      Lumberg even tried to fly under the bridge in Daugavpils in 1927, but - alas ... The bridge won.

    It is reported that Latvia is represented in the maneuvers by "combat units of land forces, air forces, as well as several specialized detachments of the national guard".
    Well, "zemerssssadze" is "kamikaze" in Latvian - that's understandable. But what was meant by the concept of a combat unit of ground and air forces is probably a terrible military secret. belay And most likely these "Latvian combat units" do not yet have generally accepted names, well, there is a company, a squad or a flying partisan ...

    On the badge of the soldier shown in the photo, the surname is something like Vardanyans. Typically hot Baltic warrior, ready to fall for NATO.

      Vardanyans is clearly from the states and the one who carefully adjusts his ammunition to his military field wife from Latvia. Sweet couple! Who will cope with such zemsezra!

    The exercises will involve “artillerymen, mortar launchers, reconnaissance, combat engineers, structural engineers, anti-tank units and defense units against weapons of mass destruction”

    - however, suicide bombers, if that, train organized cemeteries for themselves "exceptional" to deploy

    The entire Latvian army is 5500 people, of which only one mine-trawling unit of the Navy is doing its job and is doing it well. And all the rest are really rabble, go to the army only for reasons of a good social package and early retirement.

    During the exercises they find out how quickly the fighting units of Latvia and other land-dwellers will reach the Canadian border and there they will show these Russians in emigration.

    Thousands of three hundred people! Well, there they will trample all the gardens and piss all the flower beds. And at the end of the exercises, experts on protection against weapons of mass destruction will give everyone white sheets in order to develop a maneuver for crawling to the cemetery.

    Latvians overseas army rations will be afraid even of their shadow. It was sad to live there. It is necessary to somehow attract investment, even at the cost of another betrayal. They are not used to it. (((
