Military Drill 'Defenders of Europe 2020' to Start January

The massive supranational military drill “Defender Europe 2020” is to kick off this month with a total of 37,000 soldiers from 18 nations participating in the training. The drills will take place in Germany, Poland, Georgia and the Baltic States.

General Andrew M. Rohling, the Deputy Commander of the US Armed Forces in Europe, said the “military maneuver is not related to any particular country. It aims to respond quickly to any crisis.”

“The goal is to send a signal that the United States of America's responsibility for Europe and the NATO partners would do justice,” Rohling underlined.
