  Large-scale exercises with the US participation started in Lithuania

2014 05 20

Large-scale tactical field training exercise under the name "Black Arrow" with the participation of the infantry brigade "The Iron Wolf" and the US airborne brigade started in Lithuania, informed portal DELFI.

"The Iron Wolf" brigade is the core unit of the Lithuanian infantry forces, and according to the military, the forthcoming exercise will be the largest this year. The training will involve about one and a half thousand servicemen, including a unit of American soldiers (some 150 people). They are based in Lithuania since the end of April and are seconded from the U.S. 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, based in the Italian city of Vicenza.
The exercises are part of the NATO training program developed in the countries bordering Ukraine. The Pentagon has repeatedly stressed that it demonstrates strong support of the United States to its allies in the face of crisis in Ukraine. Earlier, in April, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Estonia appealed to the NATO and the U.S. requesting to strengthen military presence on their territories in connection with the crisis in Ukraine.
