    NATO is deploying an additional four battalions of 4,000 troops in Poland and the three Baltic States, according to a report citing US Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work.Work confirmed the number of troops to be sent to the border with Russia, The Wall Street Journal reports.

    He said the reason for the deployment is Russia’s multiple snap military exercises near the Baltics States.“The Russians have been doing a lot of snap exercises right up against the borders, with a lot of troops,” Work said as cited by the Wall Street Journal.

    “From our perspective, we could argue this is extraordinarily provocative behavior.”

    and hiding nukes in Kaliningrad oblast isn't a provocation?
    Well- countries that, unlike UK- "had a pleasure" of being "liberated" by Red Army have right to ensure their safety and defense by ties with Nato. Good.
