“We are consistent in building the resilience of the North Atlantic Alliance, through the development of the Polish armed forces as well as constant exercises. Exercises are extremely important when it comes to building interoperability, i.e., training procedures, and contacts between soldiers. The forces of the North Atlantic Alliance guard the security and stability of the countries located on NATO’s Eastern Flank” – assured Deputy Prime Minister Mariusz Błaszczak during a meeting with soldiers participating in the Amber Desire 22 exercise.
On Monday, August 22, the Deputy Prime Minister and head of the Ministry of National Defense observed the training of soldiers of the Polish Army and allied forces in the vicinity of Supraśl.
In 2022, separated forces of the Multinational Division North East (MND NE), the 15th Mechanized Brigade in Giżycko and sub-units of the international NATO eFP Battalion Battle Group, stationed in Poland since 2017, conduct a cyclical exercise “Amber Desire – 22.” The current edition of the exercise involves 300 soldiers and 40 units of equipment.
The exercise is a test of the ability to efficiently relocate subunits over a long distance and conduct defensive operations, also involving the synchronization of international subunits, increasing their interoperability. In addition, military equipment demonstrations were held in the area.
