THE GUARDIAN: officially confirmed Russian landing on Bornholm


After two unconfirmed sightings of Russian boats on the shore of Bornholm the JFC has just officially confirmed this information in a press release. The UK government works closely with their Danish colleagues in Copenhagen to ensure the security of the civilians on the island.  It is however unclear whether the Danish military has the necessary resources to evacuate everyone from the island in time. There have been considerable budget cuts since the end of the Cold War. Cooperation with NATO members in the region might play a central role in case of an evacuation.
