VJTF 2019 deploying to Zagan, Poland across the German border in the annual Noble Jump exercise (the Norwegian contingent is taking a separate route). Interestingly, the Bundeswehr is training logistical support of its deployed force, by its own forces, for the first time in separate national exercise Brave Departure; previously, deployment exercises had years of advance planning with logistics in place in the host country. AFVs also moved on their own tracks from a railhead at exercise area Oberlausitz on the German side.

Imagine what a threat that huge landing force must pose to Russia. I expect they're quaking in their collective boots now.  :)

They could have done better. Not one of them is smoking a cigar or chewing gum.

It's a publicity still from the little known Polish remake of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

It was predicted.....

 

https://news.err.ee/...ting-to-estonia

 

Interior minister Mart Helme (EKRE) says he has ordered an inquiry into the lifting of visa-free entry into Estonia for Ukrainian citizens. Since 2017, a visa waiver agreement between Ukraine and the European Union has allowed freer movement, which Helme said is putting pressure on Estonia's eastern border.

In Estonia, because of its location and history, migration from the east has become a bigger and bigger issue, especially from Ukraine," Helme stated on the Conservative People's Party of Estonia's (EKRE) own portal Uued Uudised, ERR reported on Wednesday.

"We have to take a serious look at the situation, and we have taken legal advice," he continued.

Helme said that his party had already predicted the uptick in the number of people from Ukraine entering Estonia ahead of the agreement with the EU coming into effect, and notes that the development constitutes a "trojan horse", primarily for Russian influence in Estonia.

"This trojan horse works, among other things, on Russia's behalf, since those who have been coming here are not Ukrainians so much as Russians from eastern Ukraine, or Russians from Russia*, or simply 'homo sovieticus'," Helme said, referring to a disparaging term for an average, conformist and largely Russian-speaking person from the former Soviet Union as a whole.

Helme added that he is also working on removing immigration exemptions and redesigning the current rules on temporary agency work. Many workers from Ukraine are reportedly employed in the construction sector in Estonia in particular.

"Underlying this migratory pressure is a whole bunch of our businessmen who use Ukrainians for cheap labor: Our real estate agents and developers who are building blocks of flats in Tallinn, who see immigrants from the east [as a source of labor]," Helme continued.

Helme was echoing comments he had already made on ERR's Russian-language TV channel, ETV+.

"Visitors from Ukraine are not our people. They are economic migrants who want to get better conditions in Estonia and higher earnings than is possible in Ukraine. For Estonia, these people are a problem; they take jobs from local residents and are willing to work for less. Thus, they create pressure on local earnings in general," Helme said, speaking on ETV+ current affairs show Svoya pravda on Tuesday.

 

* Interesting in Russian text it is not "Russians from Russia" but "Russified Ukrainians" https://rus.err.ee/9...zda-v-jestoniju
