NATO is considering stationing up to 300,000 troops on the border with Russia
NATO is discussing the need to strengthen its eastern borders with Russia by concentrating equipment and a military contingent of up to 300,000 troops to prevent Russia from expanding the war beyond Ukraine.
Details: Politico writes that NATO intends to stop Russia if it decides to expand the war beyond Ukraine. For this reason, the alliance is talking about strengthening its eastern borders and the need to send up to 300,000 troops to the border.
Such actions require coordination and major efforts by the 30 NATO members to provide soldiers, training facilities, large quantities of weapons, equipment and ammunition.
But the news agency stresses that coordination could be a challenge, as many allies are already concerned about their own insufficient stockpiles of ammunition, which take time and money to replenish.
Politico writes that NATO military leaders should present updated regional defense plans. Alliance officials are putting forward the idea that its borders with Russia should be guarded by up to 300,000 troops, the news agency reports.
It is noted that the first echelon of NATO troops can consist of about 100,000 soldiers ready for action within 10 days. It may include troops from Poland, Norway, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The second squadron of troops, Politico writes, will support these soldiers, who are ready to be deployed from countries like Germany within 10 to 30 days.
