Nato leaders at the summit taking place in Warsaw July 8 and 9 officially confirmed the deployment of four international battalions in and
along the alliance’s eastern flank, including in Poland, to counter a potential Russian threat to the region, Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday afternoon.

The battalions will be “robust,” multinational and deployed next year on a rotational basis, Stoltenberg said.

Nato needs to prove that it is a living, strong and reliable alliance, and to do it must considerably strengthen its defensive and deterring capability, President Andrzej Duda said at the opening of a Warsaw Summit Experts’ Forum accompanying the Nato summit.
