Three thousand U.S. military personnel will be sent to Central and Eastern Europe in the near future in order to strengthen NATO’s security in connection with the threat of Russian armed invasion of Ukraine.

President Biden has ordered 1,700 troops from Fort Bragg base in North Carolina to be sent to Poland, adding to the 300 soldiers and officers now serving in Germany and another 1,000 personnel to be redeployed from Germany to Romania.

According to Washington, this decision should become another clear signal to the Kremlin that the United States is ready to stand up to its European allies at any moment.

The U.S. and its allies have repeatedly said that any aggressive Russian actions toward Ukraine would lead to more NATO units on its eastern flank. Earlier, the White House had already said that 8,500 U.S. troops were on full alert for deployment to Europe “in the near future.”

As for Russia’s reaction, the Kremlin is using the latest reports from the U.S. as an excuse to claim that they are proof of Washington and NATO’s desire to make Russia a target for Western aggression.

There are no plans to send U.S. troops directly to Ukraine yet: the Pentagon reiterated that U.S. soldiers “will not fight” on Ukrainian territory.
