"Among the Dutch mechanized infantry battalion’s military equipment, which arrived on Tuesday, are the CV 90 combat vehicles, the Fennek armed reconnaissance vehicles, the Boxer multirole armored fighting vehicles, the armored recovery vehicles and others," the ministry said.
The military equipment will be temporarily deployed with the NATO multinational battalion in the town of Rukla in Lithuania's Kaunas county. More than 250 munitions are said to have already been deployed with the NATO battalion.
NATO has been boosting its military presence in Eastern European states since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, citing Russia's alleged interference in that conflict as justification for the move.
The alliance's decision to deploy four multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland was announced by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg after the July 2016 summit in Warsaw.
