WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US Army will deploy to Europe several units in support of NATO’s Ukraine-focused Operation Atlantic Resolve, the Army said in a press release Thursday.
"The Department of the Army announced today the deployment of 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, 10th Mountain Division with approximately 1,750 soldiers and the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division with roughly 4,000 soldiers to Europe this winter in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve," the release stated.
The 10th Combat Aviation Brigade is headed to Germany and the 3rd Armored Brigade will operate throughout Poland and the Baltic states.
Russia has repeatedly warned that in amassing troops and military equipment as well as conducting exercises on its borders, the United States and NATO are engaging in aggression that could disturb regional and global stability.
