NATO is considering the permanent deployment of troops on the Eastern Flank


NATO is considering permanent deployment of Allied troops on the Eastern Flank, the Alliance’s secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, said.

“NATO is working on plans for the permanent development of troops along its eastern border in response to increased Russian military activity,” Stolteberg said in an interview with the British Daily Telegraph. These plans will be announced at a NATO summit in Madrid in June 2022.

About 40,000 NATO troops are currently deployed on the Alliance’s Eastern Flank. This number is about ten times higher than before the start of the war in Ukraine.
