“The Lithuanian Air Force will carry out tasks together with representatives of the state border service and inspectors of the fire safety department. The close cooperation between units of the Lithuanian army and institutions under the Ministry of Internal Affairs is undoubtedly important when performing various tasks in peacetime, ”the press service of the commander of the Air Force Davis Martusevičius quotes.

About 100 people are involved in the maneuvers. “Within the framework of the exercise, the military will hone actions in terms of protecting the airspace over the INPP, perform fire extinguishing, try to carry out maintenance of equipment in street conditions,” the release says.

The work of the Ignalina NPP was stopped at the insistence of Brussels in 2009. Its decommissioning is funded by European funds. € 941 million has already been spent, more will need about 745-million. It is planned to complete the dismantling of the station in 2038.

In the meantime, the spring storm joint exercise with NATO begins in Estonia, involving about 6 thousand military personnel.

“Maneuvers will be the largest this year. Of the 6, thousands of troops more than 1,5 thousand are from NATO Allied countries. Among them are servicemen from Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania, the USA, Finland and Sweden, ”the country's General Staff said in a statement.

The dates of the exercise are from 2 to May 19, the venue is “the territory of Tartu, Võru and Põlva counties”.

According to the press service, during the maneuvers, “American fighter jets F15 and helicopters CH-47 Chinook, convertible planes V-22 Osprey, fighters Su-22 of the Polish Air Force, as well as fighter jets of the British Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon will fly into the sky over Estonia.

    In my opinion, the main topic during the exercise will be to look for "Russian saboteurs" in the Baltics.

        Damn, how do they come up with such names for their teachings?
        I would not be surprised if we hear about exercises with the names "Autumn Cucumber", "Democratic Surprise", "Peaceful Cobblestone", "Green Fir Trees", "Lightning Sprats", "Tempest in a Glass"

        The main theme is that the United States slammed all the fuel from the nuclear power plant and took it to itself. These Baltic states will live without electricity.

      I just want to create a poster, writing: "You will meet a liberal convincing everyone that the West exudes peacefulness towards Russia - fuck ... spit in his face!" A total of 250 military units, formations, NATO bases stand along the borders of Russia and "Peace Falcon" today, this is "Barbarossa" tomorrow and you have to be either an id.tom, or a traitor, so that you don't understand this! The liberal stratum of our society, I personally, hardly believe ...

    The richer the country, the farther it seeks to push even a theoretical land war from its borders. And the Balts enthusiastically work out ground operations on their land.

    It seems that in the Baltics (especially in Lithuania), they believe, or pretend that the Russians are eager to occupy them. They believe, not convinced, because belief is a derivative of reason. As the saying goes, nothing infects a crowd with faith like a high degree of faith in other people. For example, I don’t want to argue with demoniacs. Where is the line between pretense and faith? For great artists, I think it is generally blurred. Looking at some odious figures, one would like to say like Stanislavsky "I believe!", But immediately add as Tertullian "... because it is absurd"

    The Baltic states have very big problems. The economy is not growing, there is no progress in any of the sectors. They stupidly repeat the path of Ukraine (perhaps Ukraine their path, due to the natural brakes of the Baltic states), but, the essence remains - the US scenario is, for now. I already laid out demographics in the Baltic States at + with the advent of NATO soldiers on their territory. They have no other way but to breed with an attempt to obtain US citizenship. Europe does not need them, I affirm!

    For the first time I hear the falcons are peaceful.
    But the next step is the teaching of the Baltos: "The death of the spring falcon in a peaceful storm."

    One gets the impression that the Baltics are simply asleep and see that Russia "occupies" it. Before me, it was repeatedly reminded that the Soviet Union had the Baltics: a RAF minibus, a Shilalis TV, a Vega radio, high-quality knitwear, shipbuilding, resorts and much more. Now there are agrarian and fishing artels (you can't name it otherwise). And the teachings are more like a game of Zarnitsa. 100 people or 6000 no difference. By their teachings, they force us to strengthen the grouping of troops and immediately ask the West for grandmothers to strengthen their partisan detachments. At the same time, as always, part of the money will go past the cashier. Something like this.

    The Balts, like the Germans, serve as servants. Only then they would not be forgotten. With Amers it’s clear that the enemy is the enemy .. but these .. At one time I promised to shoot the representatives of Sayudis who came to campaign in our guards airborne regiment. Then I was young. They sang beautifully about general freedom. After my words, they quickly pulled up and over cursing totalitarianism. What a pity ... we didn’t shoot them then. Now they brought the enemy to our door.
