NATO confirms units in six European countries, Romania included

NATO will deploy small units in six Eastern European nations to help coordinate a spearhead force set up in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine, the alliance’s secretary-general said Friday.

The Alliance’s Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg said the units in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria will be the first of their kind there.

The forward units will comprise a few dozen personnel only. They will plan and organize military exercises, and provide command and control for any reinforcements the force might require.

“They’re going to plan, they’re going to organize exercises, to provide … some key command elements for reinforcements,” Stoltenberg said, as quoted by ABC News.

Defense ministers from the 28-nation military alliance will discuss the full force, which can react quickly to any hotspots in Europe, when they meet on February 5.
