Michael Fallon – 2017 Comments on British Soldiers in Estonia

The comments made by Michael Fallon, the then Secretary of State for Defence, on 30 October 2017.

Nobody should be in any doubt of our unwavering commitment to the security of Europe through NATO in the face of Russian belligerence.

In the face of intensifying threats, the UK has stepped up across Europe, with soldiers, tanks and Typhoons deployed from Estonia to Romania.

Our enhanced Forward Presence is a strategic tripwire that we will maintain on an enduring footing.
