    The United States anticipates major contributions from NATO members to improve the alliance’s readiness, US Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland said in a testimony at the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — NATO has been reinforcing its military presence in Europe, particularly in Eastern European states, since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, citing Russia's alleged interference in that conflict as justification for the move. Moscow has repeatedly denied the accusations, calling NATO's military buildup near Russia's borders provocative.

    The upcoming NATO summit is expected to be the largest ever summit of the alliance as the Polish capital expects to host more than 2,000 people, including 26 delegations from NATO partners and observers.

    "We also expect significant contributions from all other Allies to improve NATO’s readiness, responsiveness, and interoperability,’ Nuland stated.
