The National Defence Committee received an overview of the activities of the special operations unit of the Defence Forces, as well as of its capacities to be developed. Chairman Mati Raidma can only describe the achievements as positive so far.

“This is a very professional and important component in our national defence and we can only feel proud about their development. This undoubtedly improves confidence in our defence capacity today,” Raidma said after receiving the overview.

The Committee received the overview from Lieutenant Colonel Riho Ühtegi, the commander of the special operations unit.

The main task of the unit is to develop non-conventional military capacities in Estonian national defence. The tasks of the unit also include special intelligence and monitoring, military support and direct attack.
