First International NATO Troops Arrived in Lithuania

The first Belgian troops of the international NATO battalion formed under German leadership arrive in Lithuania. About 30 soldiers had already arrived at Palanga Airport, dozens more are due to arrive on January 26.

Unfortunate start

Part of US armored vehicles deployed in NATO countries has been damaged during the transfer to Poland. In addition, some American tanks accidentally arrived with discharged batteries or not completely filled.

That is not the last misfortune for the U.S. Army in Oland. Military truck has collided with a private van in southwestern Poland, hospitalizing two Poles.

Russian threat

NATO has been forcing its military presence in Europe for several years since the beggining of Ukrainean crisis when Russia was accused in interference in the conflict . Moscow has repeatedly denied the claims and warned NATO that the military buildup near Russia’s borders is provocative and threatens the existing strategic balance of power.

Last summer at the NATO summit in Warsaw the composition of the multinational battalions was finally approved.  . The Alliance will continues to strengthen its eastern flank in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland to counter “growing fears about Russia in the region”.
