France will send 4 tanks and 20 infantry (IFV) with 300 troops, will reach in the Baltic state of Estonia on April 23 to contribute to NATO’s efforts near the western border of Russia. Russian media said on Friday

The press service of the French embassy in the former Soviet Baltic republics also said that the army and technology would be deployed in the city of Taba, only about 140 km from the Russian border.

The deployment of a unit of the French army in Estonia is part of NATO’s mission to strengthen the military presence of the coalition in the Baltic states and Poland on the pretext of containing any possible Russian attack.

The French contingent to be deployed in Estonia consists of soldiers of the Second Brigade of the French Army and mercenaries from the Foreign Legion, and military equipment will be transported by rail.

The French diplomatic mission in the Baltic states said the unit would remain in the Baltic republics until the end of August this year.

In recent years, Russia has noted unprecedented NATO activity on its western border. NATO is expanding its military deployment there under the pretext of “deterring Russian aggression”.

Moscow has repeatedly expressed concern over NATO’s mobilization of troops in Europe. The Kremlin has previously stressed that Russia poses no threat to anyone, but will not ignore actions that could pose a threat to its security and interests.
