NATO plans to transfer about 4 000 military to the eastern border
The reason is Russian numerous military exercises on its borders
NATO plans to transfer four battalions of up to 4,000 people to Poland and the Baltic countries, reported Wall Street Journal citing western officials. It is expected that two battalions will provide the United States, one - the UK and one - Germany.
Also the US Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work confirmed the information about NATO's plans to strengthen the eastern border of the Alliance. In an interview he explained the transfer of additional forces with numerous military exercises with the participation of a large number of troops, which Russia is pursuing on its borders. According to him, NATO regards these actions as an "extremely provocative behavior".
NATO Foreign Ministers in February approved the basic principles of the placement of additional forces in Eastern Europe, however, diplomats said that specific figures were not announced.
