NATO Mine Clearing Squadron Arrives in Tallinn ({{commentsTotal}})


A six-ship mine clearing squadron under the command of NATO arrives in Tallinn today where it is due to dock at the Seaplane Harbor.

The ships will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday before gearing up for the NATO collective military exercise Steadfast Jazz, set to take place in the Baltic states and Poland in November.

A 32-strong mortar platoon of the Estonian Defense League is heading to Sirgala military training complex near Jõhvi to prepare for the November exercises.

The platoon will be the first volunteer group to participate in the maneuvers.

Steadfast Jazz plays out a scenario wherein the Baltic states have been invaded and the NATO Response Force intervenes.
