WASHINGTON D.C.: The United States has begun to deploy 3,000 troops on a three-month exercise to reassure Russia’s nervous neighbors in the Baltic, military officials said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). Operation Atlantic Resolve will see major North Atlantic Treaty Organization forces working alongside their allies in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia—former Soviet republics now members of the Western alliance. Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steven Warren said vehicles, helicopters and heavy equipment had begun arriving in the Latvian capital Riga and that the exercises would last 90 days.
