Nordics Unite For Cross Border Air Combat Training; Thanks Russia!
Increasing fears of Russia has pushed a number of European countries into closer cooperation with each other. This “new ‘cluster’ of European nations with a common security objective has quietly emerged recently in the form of focused military cooperation and coordination among the Nordic nations, Poland, the Baltic States, and the UK. This cluster is operating in close cooperation with the US military. The Danes, Norwegians, the Swedes and Finns are cooperating closely together on defense matters. Enhanced cooperation is a response to fears of Russian incursions, which are not new, but have roots in centuries of Russian interaction with Northern Europe.”
