10:04 PM, February 10, 2016
In a move to counter ‘Russian Aggression, the UK reportedly will send five warships and 530 naval personnel to join NATOs fleet to increase its military capacity.
“Increasing our Nato deployment sends a strong message to our enemies that we are ready to respond to any threat and defend our allies; 2016 will see a particular focus on the Baltic region with our ships sent there as part of the Maritime Group, the Mine Counter Measure Group and the Baltic ops exercise,” The Independent quoted UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon as saying.
Earlier on Wednesday, The Telegraph newspaper reported that NATO plans to deploy thousands of troops along Russias border with Eastern Europe.
Russia has repeatedly expressed concerns over NATO's military build-up along its western borders, warning that the alliance's expansion undermines regional and global security.
