Russia was accused of discrediting NATO because of the removal of drunken soldiers from the train

Russia was suspected of trying to discredit the actions of NATO after six British soldiers were removed from a train 30 kilometers from the Estonian-Russian border. The incident is reported by the Daily Mirror.

It is specified that the servicemen were disembarked in connection with complaints from passengers who said that the soldiers were drunk and shouted, scaring fellow travelers. Representatives of local law enforcement agencies detained the British and handed them over to the military police of the North Atlantic Alliance. According to available data, the rowdies are awaiting disciplinary action.

In what happened near the Russian border, they saw malicious intent: some decided that the scandal was provoked by “Russian intelligence agents” who took advantage of the state of the soldiers. “This serious incident could have been deliberately set up by agents of [Russian President] Putin,” Bruce Jones, a specialist in Russia at Jane’s military analytical agency, said in an interview with reporters. The Ministry of Defense assured that they are investigating the circumstances of the incident. The publication notes that quite a lot of military personnel from the UK are concentrated in Estonia. For the most part, they belong to the first battalion of the Mercian Regiment.
