Nato to expand presence in east Europe

  • Responding to what it calls a change in Russia’s military approach and the crisis in Ukraine, Nato plans to deploy forces in its east European bases, according to media reports.

    The move is likely to trigger a robust response from Russia. 

    Nato secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen said modernization of Ukraine’s military was also on the agenda.

    He said Nato would adopt a “readiness action plan” that would enable the organization to act with rapid speed “in this completely new security environment in Europe.”
