NATO begins ‘Cold Response 22’ military drills in Norway

More than 30,000 NATO troops will begin military drills in Norway today as part of a long-planned exercise.  NATO’s so-called “Cold Response 22” drills are held every two years and bring together troops from over 25 countries.  The exercises last for two months and test their ability to operate in cold weather environments.  The drills come at a time of heightened tension for NATO members, as Russia broadens its offensive in Ukraine.
