About 8,000 British Army personnel will take part in exercises across Eastern Europe in one of the largest exercises since the Cold War. The program of the exercise provides for repulsing a Russian invasion of one of the NATO countries.
The Guardian writes about this.
This summer, dozens of tanks, hundreds of vehicles and armored personnel carriers will be deployed to NATO countries bordering Russian Federation, in accordance with the plans for large-scale exercises. The large-scale exercise will involve tens of thousands of troops from NATO and the Joint Expeditionary Force alliance, which includes Finland and Sweden.
British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace stressed: “Europe’s security is more important than ever. This exercise will link up our forces with NATO allies and partners in a show of solidarity and strength in one of the largest joint deployments since the Cold War.”
