A division of French infantry arrived in Lithuania who will participate in the Iron Wolf 2016 for the first time, reports RIA News BNS message.

The French Defense Ministry for the first time sent an infantry unit to Lithuania to participate in maneuvers.


“These are the first teachings of the French infantry in Lithuania. So France demonstrates solidarity with Lithuania ",
quotes the publication of the representative of the French Embassy in Vilnius Sami Visek.

As the agency notes, “previously the French military did not take part in military exercises in Lithuania, citing limited resources, as a large number of military personnel in the country take part in real military operations — about 10 thousands of soldiers are abroad, more than four thousand are in Africa” .

In the fall, France will transfer its fighter jets to Lithuania, which, according to priority, will begin a mission to control the airspace of the Baltic countries.

The international exercise “Iron Wolf-2016” began on June 1 in Lithuania.

        Yes, and the name is appropriate.
        I would not say. The wolf is a predator worthy of respect. And these creatures are of a different kind. These exercises should be called "Hungry Hyena 2016" or "Cowardly Jackal 2016"

      According to the recollections of the participants, during the signing of the act of surrender of Germany
      On May 8, 1945, the head of the German delegation, Field Marshal Keitel, seeing people in French uniform among those present at the ceremony, could not help but wonder: “How ?! And these, too, defeated us, or what ?! "

      No need to offend the Masai. They are really cool warriors. And they are unlikely to go to the Baltic states. And the French ... Well, what can I say, pulled them to the Baltic Riviera. Moreover, they are not there for the first time. It is believed that many Baltic cities were built with the Templars' money. But only the indigenous people were allowed into these cities only on holidays and weekends ...

          According to legend, the founder of Vilnius is the Grand Duke Gedeminas. And the thing was this: the tired prince fell asleep, and he had a dream. In a dream he saw a wolf howling on a high hill. Having fired an arrow at the beast, Gedeminas sees that she has bounced off the wolf. The wolf was iron! Well, and then people who understand such matters explained to the prince that he must certainly build a castle and a city here.http://imadesign.ru/ru/news/journal?author=12&id=123
          The Iron Wolf (Geležinis Vilkas), also known as the Iron Wolf Association, is a Lithuanian fascist movement founded by Augustinas Voldemaras in 1927. To achieve their political goals, the Iron Wolves often used force. The movement was banned in 1930, but continued to operate underground. In 1934, members of the movement tried to overthrow President Antanas Smetona (Smetona was previously one of the most respected organizations in the organization). After an unsuccessful coup attempt, Voldemaras was arrested. He was detained until 1938. Immigrated immediately after his release. During World War II, many members of the movement collaborated with the German authorities.

          Motorized Infantry Brigade Iron Wolf - The main unit of the ground forces of the Lithuanian army. The brigade was formed in 1990, and currently has 6 battalions in its composition: 2 mechanized infantry battalions, 2 motorized infantry battalions, an artillery battalion, and a logistics support battalion for direct support of troops.
          The management and the headquarters of the brigade are located in the village of Rukla, Jonava region. Battalions are stationed in Alytus, Rukle, Panevezys and Taurag.

          Only I do not understand, there are "wolf" chevrons with badges of the Airborne Forces (parachute), which means that the brigade includes a reconnaissance sabotage. unit with amphibious training ???

    Something a lot of them have accumulated in Lithuania, if we add the sea connection of NATO ships of more than 30 ships of different classes! Apparently they are working out the coherence of the offensive, and not the positional defense! This version was briefly voiced by ours in the Moscow Region as well!

      In addition, the NATO Northern Coasts (North Shores) 2016 mine action exercises were held in May.
      19 warships and teams of divers-sappers (the 1st NATO Permanent Naval Group (SNMG1) and the 1st NATO Permanent Mine Action Group (SNMCMG1) were involved.

    The laurels of Napoleon do not allow to sleep peacefully (as if not to be late for the division of Russia). And what they can’t sit at home is full of problems, but they all climb wherever they fall.

    For a long time the French were not in those parts, for more than two hundred years, let them see what has changed. Another thing surprises me how they like to cajole with names for their teachings and wars, the less they mean, the worse the name.
