MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The article comes after NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday called on the Alliance's ministers to increase its presence in Eastern Europe in order to send a "powerful signal to deter any aggression."
According to The Telegraph, US, UK and German troops may be deployed in eastern and southern Europe and in the Baltic states.
Since 2014, NATO has been building up its military presence in Europe, particularly in Eastern European countries bordering Russia, using Moscow's alleged interference in Ukraine as a pretext for the move.
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.
