    Moscow said it will deploy a motorised division in Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave bordering Poland and Lithuania, according a Russian-government newspaper.

    "The increasing concentration of NATO forces in the region creates concerns [...] to overcome this situation, it has been decided to enhance the defence of Kaliningrad Region," according to Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

    Despite not naming the exact unit, the newspaper mentions the arrival of a motorised division, the Latvian news agency LETA reported on Wednesday.

    Following Russia's aggression against Ukraine, NATO has bolstered its presence in the Baltic states and Poland. US President Donald Trump and his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, agreed earlier this year to deploy additional American forces in Poland to deter Russia.

    Meanwhile, US Air Forces in Europe Commander Jeff Harrigian said in September the US has a plan to counter Russian air defences in Kaliningrad. Moscow criticised the statement, saying Russia considers it "a threat".
    In November, an armoured US battalion arrived in Lithuania on a rotational deployment, which caused an outcry in Moscow and Minsk, with Belarus claiming it would deploy additional troops near the Lithuanian border.

    The NATO summit in London on December 3-4 reconfirmed the threat of Russia.

    the next utterly Bullcrap from the canadian russian whoreshipper monkey...

    The increased number of NATO soldiers in the balticum is only a reaction to Russia. Russia was first deploying 3 Divisons at the boarder of the baltic states..which had no heavy weapons and all together only 12.000 soldiers...
    To protect the NATO member states from a agressive Russian act, the NATO increased its number of troops and heavy equipment. But as usual for all the anti NATO and russian fanboys ...always the NATO is the bad guy...

    They all want more territory. Be it NATO or Russians. This is human nature. Humans fight for territory since day 1 of mankind, every single day. Whether Russians or Americans. Same deal. Evil to the planet. Disease to the planet. They pollute the planet. They squander resources. They wipe out wildlife. They poison nature. They have no respect for the planet.
