NATO Deploys Permanent Full-Scale Military Force on Russian Border

NATO General Secretary, Jens Stoltenberg, said NATO will deploy a Permanent Full-Scale, Large Military Force, on its Border with Russia. "What we see now is a new reality, a new normal for European security," Stoltenberg said. "Therefore, we have now asked our military commanders to provide options for what we call a reset, a longer-term adaptation of NATO.

The Alliance currently has a small "tripwire" presence along the Border with Russia. NATO Troop numbers have increased tenfold to 40,000, since the Invasion of Ukraine,

The "reset" will involve deploying sufficient forces to Repel any offensive on NATO Nations by Russian troops. NATO members bordering Russia include Estonia and Latvia.

Stoltenberg will raise the Issue of a bolstered Military Presence further, at a NATO Summit in Madrid, in June.

Members of the Alliance, agreed on Friday, to offer more Military Support to Ukraine. U.S. and NATO Countries are dispatching Planes filled with Military Equipment for Ukraine. The Shipments include Anti-Armor and Anti-Aircraft Missiles which could be used against Russian Tanks and Helicopters.
