NATO is considering an expansion of its military presence on member-country borders with Russia, US media reported Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — One NATO plan stipulates the deployment of a battalion with up to 1,000 soldiers in Poland and each Baltic country, including Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing diplomatic and military sources.

Another plan envisages the deployment of a single battalion for the whole region.

In September, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that any NATO advancement toward Russian borders would prompt Moscow to take counter-measures to ensure the country's national security.

Russia has repeatedly expressed concerns over NATO's military buildup along its western borders warning that the alliance's expansion undermines regional and global security.
