    About 2,000 paratroopers from Poland, the U.S. and the U.K. began an airborne exercise near the Polish city of Torun on June 6, which marked the beginning of NATO's 10-day joint military drills Anaconda 2016.

    The name fits perfectly: in recent days, tanks and military vehicles were moving in endless columns - like a giant snake -eastwards, to the site of the largest international manoeuvres.

    Manoeuvres are to be taken on seven basic platforms -on land, at sea and in the air - under international staff command and will involve 31,000 soldiers, including about 12,000 troops from the host country Poland, and 14,000 soldiers from the U.S., and thousands of vehicles from 24 countries.
