• Four NATO battalions to go to Eastern Europe to deter Russia


    WARSAW: The United States announced Friday it will deploy 1,000 troops to Poland as part of broader NATO efforts to reassure former Communist eastern member states fearful of a more assertive Russia. Speaking at a NATO summit in Warsaw, President Barack Obama said the troops would serve “shoulder to shoulder” with Polish forces.
    They are expected to conduct frequent training missions and will be “mechanized”, meaning they would have regular infantry equipment including armored personnel carriers. Elissa Slotkin, the US acting assistant secretary of defense for international security, said the troops would be in place some time next year.
