300 U.S. Combat Troops Arrive in Poland to Reinforce NATO

WARSAW – An additional 300 United States soldiers arrived on Wednesday to Poznan, western Poland, after NATO decided to reinforce its eastern flank on Russia’s border.

The troops arrived from Frankfurt and joined close to 1,000 others, U.S. armor and heavy material already on Polish soil.

On Saturday, a series of ceremonies are scheduled across Poland to welcome the troops.

Zagan Base in southeast Poland will be the main welcoming venue with the attendance of Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, and Minister of Defense Antoni Macierewicz.

This week, the number of U.S. troops stationed in Poland is to rise further; the current deployment will involve a 4,000-strong Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) supported by 90 tanks, 18 self-propelled howitzers, 144 Bradley combat vehicles and 400 Humvee wheeled vehicles.

After their first joint maneuvers in Poland, the units will be deployed to Bulgaria, Romania and the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

With every step NATO takes to reinforce its presence on the Russian border, Moscow responds with an equal or larger counter-deployment of troops and weapons.
