NATO starts major military exercise in Poland

Thirty-one thousand soldiers from 18 NATO members and five partner countries take part in major manoeuvres in Poland starting on Tuesday, amid fears by Central and Eastern European states that Russia poses a threat to their security.

 

Polish Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz and U.S. ambassador Paul W. Jones officially launched the exercises on Monday during a ceremony in Warsaw.

 

“The purpose of this drill is mainly defensive. The aim is to check the capabilities of NATO member countries to defend the eastern flank of the Alliance,” Macierewicz said.
