Latvia says it is ready to repel Russian 'little green men'

The Latvian Army's Special Forces will increase threefold over the next few years against the backdrop of a Russian threat, as stated by Commander Juris Ušackis.

According to him, soldiers are now training to conduct operations which “were never performed before” and that is why “creativity and thinking out of the box” are required from them, DELFI reported.

“We have analyzed the experiences of special operations by the Special Forces of other countries. We are ready to repel little green men. Latvia is facing a range of different threats, including unconventional, hybrid and asymmetric. Our Special Forces are prepared and ready to counter these threats,” Ušackis noted.
