Estonian Ministry of Defense had to issue a special statement in connection with the whole series of emergency situations. Such a series of events, perhaps, have not yet been seen in any army in the world.
During the time of the large NATO drills, seven soldiers were injured in ridiculous situations. One spilled burning alcohol from the field primus on himself, another was knocked over by a truck, which was backing out.
Two Britons managed to turn their armored personnel carrier into a ditch. Finally, the reconnaissance’s SUV touched a high-voltage line with its antenna. Three people suffered. Estonian Ministry of Defense said that all this only proves the high intensity of the drills.
