Six British soldiers, who came to Estonia with a NATO group, were detained in Jõgeva, near the Estonian-Russian border, and thrown off a train for offensive behavior in a state of intoxication. And, according to British media reports, there may be “Putin agents” involved.
The British soldiers were first called to order by train staff and when their drunken cries didn’t stop, police officers entered the train.
The soldiers were taken off the train and handed over to the NATO military police. The article fears that Russian intelligence agents took advantage of the brutal behavior of the British servicemen in order to “discredit NATO operations on the border.
Russia expert Bruce Jones of the military analysis agency Jane’s suggested that “Putin’s agents” could have deliberately orchestrated the incident. The Department of Defense is now investigating all the circumstances.
