The landing of the American military in Estonia ended in leg injuries


Last week, NATO's Swift Response exercise kicked off in Europe, involving a total of more than 28 troops. 2,5 British, American and Estonian soldiers will exercise in the defense of Estonia. The maneuvers will last until May 14, but already at the very beginning they did not go without overlays.


So, on the night of May 8, during the landing over the Estonian airfield Nurmsi, 10 soldiers received leg injuries. The American paratroopers were hospitalized, and seven of them later returned to duty, while three continue to be treated in the hospital. The incident was reported by US Ambassador Mark Naylor in an interview with Postimees. All in all, about 800 soldiers took part in the landing operation, brought to the Baltic States straight from the United States. The actions of the paratroopers in Estonia were personally observed by the country's President Kersti Kaljulaid.

Swift Response has become the largest U.S. Army exercise in Europe in 25 years. Servicemen of the western bloc will practice their combat skills in 16 countries.

On Saturday, May 8, representatives of the highest US military leadership in Europe and Africa attended the maneuvers. On that day, helicopters with American paratroopers departed for Estonia to the Central Shooting Range. In total, "Bystryi Respond" is planned to involve more than 25 helicopters and 20 aircraft of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.

    And there it seems like the Estonians are appointed for the enemies. They will defend Estonia from the Estonians, class!

    I once bought myself American landing boots. I won't do it anymore.
    Conveniently.
    Красиво.
    It's not hot.
    Very slippery.
    It's slippery on the stones.
    It's unrealistically slippery on the ice.
    In the clay - hellishly slippery.
    Threw away.

      Those. landed comfortably, although it didn't work out very well ...
      They are silent about other injuries, probably they are not at all decent ...
      And you just threw out only one?

      In a small American town, a local hospital surgeon asks the director of a car store:
      - How many motorcycles have you sold this month?
      - One hundred pieces.
      - I wonder where the other four have gone?

    These weak warriors occupied the whole of Europe with their bases and troops. And why do we need this information about their injuries? And if our army is better and more prepared, why are these "invalids" standing at our borders?
