US President Joe Biden is considering deploying additional US troops, aircraft and naval forces to the Baltic states and Eastern Europe. Such information was published in The New York Times, citing sources from the US administration.
According to the media, we might be talking about “several thousand” servicemen. The decision to deploy additional troops could be made within a week, sources said.
According to the newspaper on Saturday, Pentagon officials presented Joe Biden with several options for relocating US forces as close as possible to Russia's borders. Under one of these options, defense experts suggest sending between 1,000 and 5,000 troops to Eastern European countries, with the possibility of increasing their numbers if tensions in the region escalate.
