The US has dispatched 49 military helicopters to Germany in the framework of the NATO’s Atlantic Resolve operation, which is conducted to confront Russia, the press service of the Pentagon reported.

The UH-60 Black Hawk and CH-47F Chinook helicopters from the 10th Aviation Brigade of the US Ground Forces were delivered to the German port of Bremerhaven through the sea. Trucks and other collateral equipment were also dispatched to Germany. Other 20 vehicles should arrive next week. The total number of military personnel will be 2,000 people.

Military hardware and servicemen will be deployed on a rotating basis on bases in Germany and Eastern European countries in accordance with a plan of the operation, which is conducted by NATO “in the light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”

Earlier, in the framework of the operation, the US dispatched 87 М1 Abrams tanks, 144 M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, 18 M109 Paladin self-propelled howitzers and 4,000 soldiers to Eastern Europe.

The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that it is the first time after the end of the Cold War, when the US Aviation Brigade appears in Europe, and described the situation as “not good” for Russia.
