The Swedish Armed Forces will hold annual military exercises at the end of May, in which the Estonian Air Force will take part for the first time. This is reported by DW referring to the press service of the Estonian army.
"After the restoration of independence, these will be the first exercises conducted jointly by the Air Forces of Estonia and Sweden," said acting Commander of the Estonian Air Force Riivo Valge.
He called the exercises "an interesting challenge" and "an opportunity to work out cooperation in the defense sphere."
At the airbase near Tallinn, a Swedish squadron of 8 aircraft should arrive, and about one hundred Swedish soldiers will be deployed there. Flights will be carried out around the clock - both over the territory of Sweden and over the territory of Estonia.
Training air fights will take place only in the airspace of Sweden.
As reported, Ukrainian helicopter pilots conducted exercises near the line of demarcation in Donbas.
