      A civil journalists investigative network, they like to dig around and publish their findings online (as for instance with MH17 and the bs spouted by the RF). They like to check official statements/publications against reality, they are rather good at it too.

            • Thanks for mentioning this event didn't know about it!

              Nice fleet of L61, L51 and L9894 and its support of frigates and destroyers and a submarine. Couldn't figure out all participants.

                A project of the UK intelligence services that is masquerading as a "civilian investigative network" ("White helmets" anyone?). This is why they never concentrate on any investigations that are damaging to the hand that feeds them. Also, this is why no one with half a brain finds them trustworthy.

                    31 - Sweden and Finland = the rest of 29 NATO members.

                    So all NATO members send at least staff officers. It's kinda fun to watch videos and see how many troops you can recognize.
                    Speaking of videos, here are from Finnish Defense Forces:
