According to President Joe Biden, 79, the United States will participate in the planned strengthening of NATO’s military presence in Eastern Europe. “I will move troops to Eastern Europe and NATO countries at short notice,” Biden told reporters Friday. But this is about a small number of players. The United States already has 8,500 troops on alert to strengthen NATO.
In the wake of tensions with Russia, NATO announced earlier this week that it would increase its military presence in Eastern Europe. Many member states of the Western military alliance want to send additional warplanes and ships to the Baltic Sea and Eastern European countries such as Lithuania, Romania and Bulgaria.
100,000 Russian soldiers on the Ukrainian border
According to Western reports, Russia has collected more than 100,000 troops and heavy equipment along the Ukrainian border. So the West is worried that Russia is preparing to invade neighboring countries after annexing Crimea in 2014. The government in Moscow denies the attack plans. (AFP)
