Ukraine, Scandinavia trains itself to defend itself from Russian aggression

Scandinavia trains itself to defend itself from Russian aggression. Finland has organized six military drills also with reservists. Then it will join with Norway and Sweden in NATO’s “Cold Response” maxi-maneuvers

The possible outputs of the crisis in Ukraine are of concern to the EU countries and in particular the Scandinavian ones, which are training to face possible threats. The Finnish army has organized six military drills on integrated emergency management from multiple fronts, in which some 3,000 soldiers and reservists participate. Once the maneuvers are complete, the Helsinki troops will join their Swedish colleagues for “Cold Response”. This is a NATO maxi-exercise to be held in Norway and which aims to test the integration of the various components of the Atlantic Alliance in case an armed response to Moscow provocations is needed. Norway and Finland, however, border with Russia (the Kola Peninsula). Consequently, they must be sure that their defenses are capable of coping with any aggression.
