The United States is sending F-35 Lightning II fighter jets to Estonia on Tuesday for a few weeks of training, Estonia media outlet ERR reported.

An undetermined number of jets will arrive at Amari air base, located 160 miles from the Russian border, ERR reported.

The F-35s will take part in exercises with other American and allied forces aircraft, according to the report.

Though this is a temporary posting, the U.S. has announced its intention of permanently keeping F-35s in Europe starting in 2020.

The Pentagon earlier this month said it was sending the jets to Europe, but didn't say when, the Washington Examiner reported.

The U.S sent F-35 stealth bombers to England over the weekend as a show of solidarity to Europe.
