WASHINGTON, August 19. /TASS/. NATO has launched the largest airborne forces’ drills in Europe after the end of the Cold War, the US Army in Europe Command said on Wednesday.
The multinational maneuvers dubbed Swift Response-2015 involve over 4,800 servicemen from Bulgaria, the United Kingdom, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the United States and France.
The exercises kicked off on Saturday and will last through September 13.
