The 101st Airborne Division is one of the elite units of the US Army, which is designed to deploy in a minimum time. The unit of the Division has been deployed to Europe for the first time in almost 80 years amid soaring tension between Russia and the American-led NATO military alliance

The US Army, without further announcement, transferred and already deployed in Romania the 2nd Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division with a regular number of 4,700 people.

The corresponding plot was filmed by the American CBS News channel, which had an exclusive opportunity to observe the training, which takes place a few kilometers from the border with Ukraine.

It should be noted right away that the 101st Airborne Division is one of the most combat-ready and elite units of the US Army. The light infantry unit, nicknamed the "Screaming Eagles," is trained to deploy on any battlefield in the world within hours, ready to fight.

In the plot, it is directly stated that this redeployment is connected with the threat from the Russian Federation, in particular, the Kremlin's plans of 7 months ago to break through to Odessa and cut off Ukraine from the Black Sea. It is also noted that during the training, situations from the experience of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fighting with the Russian army were recreated, and in addition to "light infantry", "heavy equipment" was also thrown. Along with the American military, the Romanian army is also undergoing similar training.
