The Estguard-4 unit of the Defense League, which is going on a mission to Iraq, trained last week in Lääne County, mainly at Kiltsi Airport.

The half-year training of mission soldiers began in December. In June, the fighters will go to Iraq for six months. The leader of the Estguard-4 group is the instructor of the Hiiumaa Regiment of the Western Brigade of the Defense League and the commander of the company, Junior Lieutenant Sven Luik.

„1. December began to hit. Half a year, every day. Half of that time is long, 14-hour days, ”Luik said clearly and briefly to the military. “We are practicing what we are going to do in Iraq. Our mission is mobile defense, meaning we are securing those NATO allies who support the Iraqi government there. ”
