“ Reserves are playing a very important role in manning the headquarters of the Multinational Division North and conducting exercise KNIGHT LION, as well as sharing experience and promoting interoperability and cooperation among participating personnel and nations,” Major General Flemming Mathiasen, Commander of Multinational Division North said.

Knight Lion 22 is preparatory exercise for exercise Griffin Lightning 23, where NATO´s Multinational Division North units improve their readiness and enhance the NATO interoperability based on common use of doctrines, tactics, procedures and functional services, ensuring that NATO and Partner Nations can operate together effectively to keep our nations safe.

Multinational Division North is an integral part of NATO force structure. The division was established to demonstrate NATO´s will and ability to defend Baltic States and secure peace and stability in the region.

During peacetime, the Multinational Division North is manned by regulars but during exercises reservists are called up to train together. This year, more than 14 nations are represented on exercise Knight Lion, among them many reserve officers and non-commissioned officers. Reserve personnel at Multinational Division North mainly comes from Denmark, Latvia, Estonia and Canada.
