In exercises, in addition to armored vehicles involved and aviation.



Exercise course commented Captain Matthew Westcott, US Commander:
I hope that during the fulfillment of this training mission, our servicemen will be able to establish effective contact (with other units) for a more diverse and high-quality organization of the solution of the assigned tasks. These exercises show an increasing level of coherence between NATO and partners.




From a statement by American Lieutenant Alex Kansler, the commander of an engineering platoon:
We work with military personnel from countries with which we have not previously worked in this format. Now we share our experience, we see how they are used to working.

      Azerbaijanis have been conducting such exercises with Turkey for about twenty years, just then Russia either did not notice them or did not attach importance.

But this does not mean that they will be able to jump from Turkey to Georgia super quickly, and then also through Pankisi to Russia ... laughing

          they have a more advanced 2 supporter exercise with partners in NATO.
          Azerbaijan conducts major exercises only with Turkey, and these are so small, but also with the participation of Turkey.

    Azerbaijanis learn to fight Armenians, and Turks are Uruses. The number of participants (860) should not be embarrassing. Tactical techniques are demonstrated at the training grounds, and material is being developed to improve the methods of preparation and organization of interaction.

    Modern concept Ephesus (Ephesus) is a trademark of Turkish beer.
    In Russia, EFES is represented by subsidiaries of the Dutch company Efes Breweries International NV, which in turn is owned by the Turkish holding Anadolu Efes

    But in fact, an ancient Greek city in the territory of modern Izmir!
    And what about the Turkish beer business, does anyone know?

      I didn’t understand something ... Azerbaijanis and Turks understand each other without translators very easily. As they say, two states are one nation ... They are genetically close as Russians are to Ukrainians, Belarusians, etc.
      And do you propose that Azerbaijan spit on Turkey, whose ties of peoples have taken place for centuries? Break ties and take the side of Russia just to confirm their loyalty? Don't you think that this is somehow selfish? If Russia quarreled with someone, does this mean that all other allies and friends should also break ties with them?
      If so, then it will not be any allies or friends anymore. They will be just puppets, such as Armenia, which Russia has been holding by the collar for two decades so that they don’t crash to their knees.

              How to say? I remember at one time in the USSR all literature and cinema were completely crammed with Jews. Nobody canceled the local traditions. Someone is spilling their area. Jews-science and art, Armenians-restaurants, Azerbaijanis-markets. Although, perhaps, in science and music, the Jews are very successful. The Hebrew math textbook is usually the shortest and clearest. I am writing, mindful of "Differential and integral calculi" by Khavinson.

        This cannot be explained to many, as well as the fact that Azerbaijan cannot act differently while Armenia is an ally of the Russian Federation and receives almost free weapons from the Russian Federation.
        And I’ll even say more if it weren’t for Aliyev, many in Azerbaijan would be for even greater integration with Turkey and the maximum minimization of contacts with the Russian Federation.

        And is this an occasion for the Russians to hate Azerbaijanis as Turks?
        You don’t like that Azerbaijan participates in these exercises? And you invite us to yours? In your opinion - why did we leave the Collective Security Treaty Organization in which we were six years old? Because we have one single problem - Garabakh. And you are in alliance with Armenia. You in alliance with the state that occupied our territories. Territories recognized by Azerbaijan as the whole world, including Russia.
        And Russia turns a blind eye when their ally conducts exercises in the territory of Garabagh. In the territories occupied by Armenia. Russia recognizes that Armenia is an occupying country, but is in alliance with them.
        Russia is a stumbling block in solving the ONLY major problem of Azerbaijan.
        What attitude does Russia want from Azerbaijan?

        The "Transcaucasian Turks" have always been for the Russians. We fought shoulder to shoulder with the Russians ... my great-great-grandfather served in the Russian Imperial Army.
        And how many Ottomans fought on the Russian side? If the Ottoman Turks are historical opponents of Russia, then Azerbaijanis are not.

            The Tatar-Mongols were also once against the Russians ... And now their descendants all live together in Russia. For at least the past 200 years, the "Transcaucasian Turks" are certainly not against the Russians. But today, due to the ugly and "arrogant" policy of Russia in relation to us, everything went backwards ... Are we to blame for this? They put spokes in our wheels and still want a good attitude towards them.
            They will say - "the Russians brought you out of the Stone Age into civilization ... you forgot about it - ungrateful" ... I will answer that - Yes ... it was - but this does not give you the moral right today to blast us from the high bell tower and poke us into merde.
            I have the impression that more and more Russians are becoming infected with the American HIGH-COOL every day. If you want to be respected and appreciated ... respect and appreciate in return. Otherwise, you will be left with "the only ally - the army and the navy" ... tell me that You don’t need others? Then explain in this case - then you have powdered the brains of everyone and everything for centuries and during the Soviet era?

          What kind of war? Russia and Azerbaijan have excellent relations, there’s no need to talk about any war even under drugs

      But why such conclusions? Russia itself cooperated very well with Turkey, and conducted joint exercises with NATO, and as soon as Azerbaijan conducted exercises with Turkey, you immediately record it in ghouls, but sheer nonsense

    What for? To add oil to the fire? But Aliev needs to be trimmed for Faberge.


    Why Aliyev? Armenia, together with Azerbaijan and a number of other friends of Russia, participated in the occupation of Iraq and didn’t cling to itself with its claw. And no one pressed Armenia (and others) for this.

      Alexander, this is too loudly said- Armenia participated in the occupation of Iraq together with Azerbaijan smile , at first I didn’t even understand when, but I remembered that years ago our government, under pressure from staff, sent a demining platoon to Iraq to mine. It can hardly be called an occupation, but I can’t say about the number of Azerbaijani troops, I don’t know, but they were not big either.

        It is not a matter of quantity, but of the fact of participation. There many have made fun of Bush Jr., even the Mongols.

    As spectators and at the same time supervisors, they will visit the final stage of the exercises

    but seriously, the composition of the participants is so diverse in everything (well, maybe except anti-Russian), that it’s very difficult for me to imagine how this hodgepodge can act as a single organism

    With whom they want, they study with them. They have their money and spend it. And Russia needs to be invited to teach and learn. But when, to whom we help financially, they travel and participate in unfriendly countries, this is bad.

      The article is ridiculous, I agree, on the basis of little things make such far-reaching conclusions! But still, most Russians understand the importance of cooperation between Russia and Azerbaijan, such articles will not change much

    But what to be indignant is not in Turkish Cyprus, but the exercises are taking place in Turkey itself, just a day earlier in Armenia, Armenia held exercises and seemed to be silent, although Russia recognizes the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

    Interaction within the framework of exercises is not only an opportunity for joint actions, but also good conditions for intelligence ..
