The Hungarian Defense Forces will hold a multi-national military training called “Adaptive Hussars 23″ in November, with the participation of NATO forces, to test the country’s defense capabilities. In the coming weeks, the Hungarian Defense Forces will conduct military operations in several parts of the country, strengthening the cooperation between them and the civil administration,” according to a statement from the Ministry of Defense.
“We are living in an era of dangers, with war, illegal migration, and the threat of terrorism in Europe. For the Hungarian government, the preservation of peace, the security of Hungary and the Hungarian people is the most important thing, which can be guaranteed by a well-trained defense force.
This is why, together with the Chief of the General Staff of the Hungarian Defense Forces, General Gábor Böröndi, a much more comprehensive training has been ordered than before, called ‘Adaptive Hussars 23’,”
announced Defense Minister Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky.
As part of the international training,
increased military vehicle traffic is expected on main and secondary roads in many locations across the country between November 2 and 26.
The Hungarian Defense Forces are asking drivers to approach military vehicles with due caution and in compliance with traffic rules, as their size and speed, as well as the length and progress of convoys, will be different from the usual traffic patterns. The closed column cannot be entered by civilian vehicles, so safe passage is ensured by escort vehicles. Drivers on these routes are requested to drive in the vicinity of military convoys in all cases taking into account the current road, weather, and visibility conditions.
“The Ministry of Defense will keep the public informed of the current progress of the military training. We thank the public for their understanding and patience for any traffic and other inconveniences associated with the exercise,” the statement concludes.
