NATO's new logistics command will be established in the southern German city of Ulm in Baden-Wurttemberg. The logistics command, dubbed the 'Joint Support and Enabling Command' (JSEC) will be co-located at Ulm's Wilhelmsburg-Kaserne with the existing Multinational Joint Headquarters. The construction of a new base will reportedly begin in July. NATO made the decision to install the new logistic... Еще command in Ulm to improve military mobility in a crisis operation, with the command being responsible for the movement of troops and military equipment across Europe to NATO's eastern flank. The decision to install the logistics command reportedly came as part of a response to the 2014 reunification of Crimea with Russia. The site for the logistics command was put forward by Germany in March. The local branch of Die Linke (The Left) Party condemned the decision. Die Linke spokesperson Eva-Maria Glathe-Braun said that party is «critical about the fact that a NATO command will be stationed here in Ulm. Actually, we are the only party [that opposes it], because the rest of city's politicians are happy about the arrival of the command.» Glathe-Braun argued, «Of course, it will create jobs, but one has to ask what kind of jobs will be created. It will again be the field of armaments, of the war industry. And what we really want is a conversion. We want these facilities to be converted into a peaceful production.»
