Expert NATO Logistics Team Visits Belarus
Netherlands - From 21 to 25 January a team from JFC Brunssum (JFCBS) conducted an Expert Team Visit (ETV) to Minsk, Belarus, on the subject of Logistics in NATO.
Over three days the team, comprising Major Michel Saeys and Major Olivier Vivot (both from the JFC Brunssum Logistics Division), and Lieutenant Commander Michelle Ward (from the HQs' Military Partnership Branch), provided a variety of briefings. The audience of approximately 20 personnel included senior officers from the Belarus Armed Forces, Ministry for Emergency Situations, and the State Borders Committee. Topics briefed and discussed included Strategic Deployment, the role of a Joint Logistics Support Group, and Host Nation Support.
The event was organised through collaboration with the International Military Cooperation Department of the Belarusian MOD, and will be followed by two further ETVs to Minsk later this year.
